Oh Diapers! I can’t even count the number of times I read in mom groups that parents want a tip, trick, technique or anything that would help their children to get potty trained as soon as possible. For me, personally, I didn’t need to. As a stay home mom I had all the time in the world to potty train my kids on their time, but it is not always like that.
Very few scientific studies have addressed the issue of how it would be best to potty train a child. That leaves it up to personal choice and to when your child is emotionally and physically ready and able to attempt the task.
Here in my house both of my boys around the age of 3 where ready to begin. First they started to want to pee in the toilet and right after poop too. The use of night diapers for my kids made the potty training take a little longer. In fact, studies shows that 22% of children are still wetting their bed by age 3 and 10% are still wetting their bed by age 7.
So what are the signs to know WHEN THEY ARE READY?
When the child keeps taking the dirty diaper off
When the diaper is dryer for longer than usual
When they start to tell you they need to pee or poop
When they show interest in using the potty

I loved this seat and used with both of my boys. What I like the most was the cushion seat and the way it folds for easy storage.

Also from Mommy’s Helper I wouldn’t leave my house without this product! I don’t know if it will happen to you, but my kids wanted to poop every time we were in a new location. They probably pooped in all the bathrooms of Miami, no kidding. At least with this in my purse I felt it was more hygienic and comfortable for them.
