Heres what you need to do -
Get your gear ready
The first step is to invest in a child-size potty chair or a special potty seat that attaches to your regular toilet. There are many options available in the market, its important to figure out what equipment is best for your toddler before you zero in on your purchase. You could even ask the little one to pick a potty chair out. There are some baby potty chairs that come with toys and alphabets that keep kids engaged and more open to using them. If you go for a potty seat, make sure that its comfortable and secure.
Set a routine
Get your toddler to sit on the potty seat for a few minutes, several times a day. It could be after breakfast, before bath time, or whenever your child is most likely to have a bowel movement. This helps kids get used to the seat and see it as a part of their routine. You could even place their potty chair in the playroom to make your kids comfortable. Stay with your child when he or she is in the bathroom. Even if your child simply sits there, praise him for trying- and remind your child that he or she can try again later.
Read the signs
As a parent, you need to start recognizing any non verbal cues that suggest that your child is ready to go. When you see your toddler squirming, squatting or making his about to pee-pee face - act fast. Help your child become familiar with these signals, stop what he or she is doing and get him to the potty pronto. When it's time to flush, let your child do the honors. Make sure your child washes his or her hands after using the toilet.
