How to toilet train your toddler

If you are like most parents, we are sure you can't wait for your tiny tot to start using the loo - and do away with the diaper routine. But every milestone needs an effort from you and your child. And toilet training is definitely not the easiest! Most parents struggle with it. So that's why we got our Proparent blogger, Sumitra Gopal, to share her 5 tried-tested tips that helped her make a smooth transition. For instance, she tells us... • How to identify your child's need to go to the toilet - each child has his/her own signal! • How to deal with a false alarm and failed attempts (must-know!) • How to encourage your child to use the loo (know the right things to say and do) And more! Read on to find out how your child too can be diaper free easily…

My Son is 8 months old and I bought me and moms pot stand which is easily adjusted on toilet seat. I just pay attention to his expression and he is comfortable going to toilet every time he has to poo. I would say the early we start the better

very helpful blog! I'm working upon my skill of staying alert. .n differentiate between false n true alarm. my son finds it quiet amusing to fool me with his expressions since he gets to see his mumma literally running n an icing on the cake he gets to have a hand on the tap to play with water.

Above post is too helpful. As per my experience we have to take them wash room at some intervals like after every one hour that make the habit in kids .My daughter is 1. 9 now. Firstly I started from 1 year as I didn't used diapers in day time unless we are not outside. After that I didn't use to put at night and now not even outside. yeah sometimes she didn't told me but as the above post told experiences also failed... but trying and trying...

My son 2. 5yrs old tells me when ever he wants to go for potty but when it comes to pee he don't tell. Although I take him to loo every 1 hour but in school he don't tell anyone if he want to use toilet that result in wet clothes. How can I make him learn to start telling even when he wants to pee. Please help

My son 2yrs 10 mths old is always reluctant to sit for doing potty on potty seat, whether Indian or western style. For getting washed afterwards, he sits on Indian type seat,even if we make him sit there for long on pretext of washing. But for doing potty , he needs diaper or underwear, and is stubborn enough to do potty on toilet seat. Me and other family members have tried a lot. Last month, our insistence resulted in what?? He held his pressure and Din't get fresh for 3 days. On 4th day, he passed hard stools. Afterwards I didn't force him that much. Plz suggest me what to do??
