Age 2 is ideal to begin. Please remember each child is unique and potty training can go on for a year too. Please cultivate patience while training your child. Each day may have different outcomes. 1. Begin talking to her about doing poo poo and pee on her own. Let her get comfortable with the idea. Also she has to get comfortable with her body parts too. Educate her on her body parts. 2. Ask her questions like - would you like to do it on your own from now? Do you know to sit on a potty. ( please get a small potty seat to be placed on the commode or buy a plastic potty that is used usually) 3. Buy a potty seat or the potty of her favourite colour. 4. Practise for days to just sit on the potty. If it is the commode ( use the potty seat meant for kids to place over your regular one )she may need help to get on. You may have to hold her hands as she may get scared that she may fall. In fact have a conversation about this too. This will help you understand her better. 5. Once she gets comfortable sitting on it- Male it like a game if needed. If she sits draw a star in her palm. 6. Next make her sit she you observe her need. You know on an average when she goes to potty. This will take a long time too. 7. During such a time let her run around without a diaper or underwear. She will begin to understand when she is peeing or pooping. Gradually she may learn to go to the potty when she has to do one of the functions. You can think of giving her a book to read while sitting on the potty. Remain beside her and be encouraging. Don’t nag or scold if she can’t use the potty. It is a bodily function and is a new sensation for the child. It is important remove the diaper close to potty time. Every 20 minutes make her sit. If she does appreciate her and clap for her effort. This could take few days or weeks. In spite of the training she may still wet her diaper or panty. It is alright. By the time she is 3 she will learn. Hence don’t stress. All the best
