What is your child’s potty personality?
Our brief assessment will help you determine what kind of Potty Partner you have and provide a personalized lesson plan on how to achieve potty training success together based on the results.
Knowing where to go to the bathroom and recognizing when to go are two different skills for a toddler. Here you'll find ways to make sure your Squirrel becomes an expert in both.
Your Squirrel will want to continue the games, and you’re starting to combine that with real potty experiences. You’re going to need to help your Squirrel slow down enough to feel what her body is doing, but keep that fun level high with the games. So build upon the games you’ve established, this time bringing the games into the bathroom.
After a while, your child will start to feel when his body tells him that he has to go to the bathroom. Cool & Learn® Training Pants provide a brief cooling sensation when your child wets to help you teach him the signs of when he needs to go. (Cool & Learn change temperature when your child has gone to the bathroom in them.) Families who choose Cool & Learn see it as a tool to help their child create the link between the brief cooling sensation, feeling wet, and going to the potty. Feel free to experiment with Cool & Learn if you prefer this approach!
How does your body feel when it’s time to go?
“Part of using the potty is knowing how your body feels when you have to go. I know I have to go to the bathroom when my tummy feels tight and heavy. I have to squeeze my tummy from the inside to keep the pee or poop from coming out until I get to the toilet. Do you ever feel your pee or poop coming? It helps to put a hand on your tummy to check. How does it feel in there? Once I sit down on the potty, I can stop holding my tummy tight and let it all go. Ahhhh. This helps my pee or poop come right out into the toilet! When you think you have to go, tell me so I can help you try, too. You're doing great so far. It’s so cool that you’re learning all this Big Kid stuff.”
