Potty training sounds so easy in theory, doesn’t it? You get the potty chair, watch some videos, read some books and the kid complies. Oh if only it were that easy. The good news is after you have success with one you retain some of the things that actually worked. That makes it a little easier when you move to the next, if you move to the next. Either way, you’re left with some tips and tricks that can be super helpful for others who are going through the process.

The main thing I recommend is transitioning from diapers to Pull-ups when you feel they’re ready. They’ll usually show some interest in the toilet – either watching you use it or watching it flush.

Another key things that has worked for us is encouragement (laced with a little bribery.) Each time someone goes potty they get lots of praise and sometimes a treat – a toy, snack, money; whatever works. The key to it is to let them know they did something great and you’re proud of them. Something else that has helped is nagging. I know it sounds bad but we ask, repeatedly, if they need to go potty. Most of the time we get a no, sometimes we get the reply we don’t want to hear: “I already did” but other times we get that “Yes” that we crave. Staying on them gets them use to the idea of using the potty.

The last tip I can give to help your child go potty is to make it mandatory before leaving the house or taking a nap. There may be some fuss, but they’ll get use to it. If you’ll be in a car for an extended period make sure they sit on the potty for at least 3 minutes beforehand. The same goes for right before nap time – that’s when we have most of our accidents.

Potty training doesn’t have to be the nightmare it can often feel like. Talk to friends and family and find out what worked for them. Don’t feel like you have to stick to just one potty training method. Every kid is different and each takes to potty training in their own special way.

    I must say girls are WAY easier to potty train. My 5 year old boy is still having to wear pull-ups at night. Took my daughter one mess and she never had a problem after that. never had to wear pull-ups either…. my son on the other hand not sure what to do with. He sleeps so good… too good at night. Wont wake up for anything. :/

    My biggest secret to potty training success is to simply wait for the child to be ready to potty train. I’ve seen the backfire of starting training too soon and it’s not fun! Your daughter is adorable!

    Oh, I don’t know if I have any secrets to potty training other than believing that every child is different and to be patient. It will eventually happen. There aren’t many kids in college that aren’t potty trained even though you may feel like it will never happen. ;) We really struggled, but fingers crossed that my son hasn’t used diapers all week.
