When to teach the pot?

With the advent of the little man, any loving parents, with bated breath, are watching his progress. And they are very worried if one of their children’s peers takes the first step or says the first word earlier. After all, their baby is a genius and should be ahead of others in everything. Therefore, when deciding when to teach a child to the pot, they are guided by their own experiences, and not by the recommendations of the doctors.

Important points

Too early acquaintance of the unformed nervous system with the pot can lead to its complete rejection, the development of fears and an increase in the process of addiction. To avoid this, pediatricians advise not to forget the physiological norms established by science. Persistent conditioned reflexes are completely formed by the age of three years, respectively, the natural reflex on the control of secretions develops in the period from 1 year to 3 years. Thus, the knowledge of toilet science can be begun unequivocally if:

  • the child has established a stable mode of defecation;
  • the diaper may remain dry for more than 1.5-2 hours;
  • the baby knows the name of the objects of the body, clothing and understands the words “pokak” and “pee”;
  • the child can undress himself and also come in and out of the closet.

In addition, the preparation of parents is important. After answering for yourself the question of when to accustom to the pot, you should take into account that the time spent on communicating with the child will increase markedly. Planting a child on the pot should be approximately eight to nine months, while watching his reaction. If he is nervous, do not insist, do not try to hold him by force. At the beginning of the acquaintance, offer the child a pot when the probability of the “process” is highest - after sleeping, after eating, if the diaper is dry for a long time. Encourage and praise the young talent, and in case of failure - do not show your chagrin. Turn the toilet procedure into an interesting game - “Adults do it like this”, kids love to imitate. It is important that the pot was not perceived as a toy, but as a subject of a certain purpose.

When the child quietly sits on the pot, and sometimes he even asks for it himself, we proceed to the next stage - we do not use diapers during the day.If everything worked out, we try to limit the time spent in diapers, taking them off at night and during walks. It is better to carry out addictive work in the warm season - this reduces the risk of a cold. If a child has no diaper rash, and there are no problems with diapers, the moment of training for the pot can be delayed even up to 2 years. The older the baby, the faster he will master this science. An interesting fact is that girls learn to pot faster than boys, due to physiological characteristics. Tips of doctors, friends and relatives do not give a clear answer, what time you need to teach the pot, and when you can. The only correct option is when both parents and baby are ready.
