How To Potty Train A Toddler


It has to happen but it’s not always easy. Teaching your kids to use the toilet begins with potty training and it’s something that several of my friends really struggled with. I was lucky, mine took to it like a swan to water. However, if you think it may not go as smoothly for you, you need this really wonderful video to lay out the basics.

Do you have any potty-training tips that you can share with us? We’d love to hear from you.


  1. I’m pretty old-fashioned and believe the potty chair should be kept in the bathroom (after all as adults we don’t potty in the living room or bathroom). My kids were potty trained very early ( I was lucky ). Helped to train 9 grandbabies & countless daycare children. I sat each of the kids on the potty every two hours for no longer then 10 minutes at a time. I also had them sit before,after nap time and before & after bath time and then again right before bed time (yes, we spent a lot of time in the bathroom each day but it worked for us). I started off with fish shaped crackers (only two at a time) for every time they completed the task successfully. After a few weeks of this I went down to only giving the crackers when they successfully did poo poo on the potty. I also used cloth underpants with rubber pants so they got the real feel on being wet.

  2. Omg, I am so happy to hear that someone else believes in the cotton underpants and plastic pants so the child knows what it feels like to be wet. It really does help and it works because they don’t like the way it feels so GREAT JOB!
