The time has come and you can't wait any longer. Your child is already more than two years old, the weather is good and it is time for you to fulfill the duties of a mother or father: remove your child's diaper. What do you need? Well, a lot of patience, perseverance and above all that you notice with your intuition that your child is ready to control his sphincters. After all, no matter how good diapers are, children will feel uncomfortable, at some point, with them.
My daughter gave up diapers when she was 2 years and 5 months. It was funny because since it was so hot, she almost asked us to take it off. It was there that we decided to try to remove the diaper. We start by removing it during the day. When she woke up, she no longer changed her diaper. We would go to the bathroom, I would put her on her potty to relieve herself, I would clean her and she would put on a panties, period. The process to get the child to acquire the habit of controlling the toilet is slow, my daughter leaked the pee sometimes, but it is very important to dress as motivations for the children. And for that, it is recommended that one of the parents be on vacation at home.
As much as you repeat to your child that he asks you to pee or poop, you always remain in expectation wondering why he does not ask you. Voluntary toilet training is a habit that must be acquired just like eating, sleeping, dressing alone, walking, washing hands ... and as such it is easier for some children than others. It is not related to the intelligence or autonomy of each child, but it is related to their level of maturity. If you notice that the child is not ready, do not insist. Each child has their moment and comparisons in this sense only annoying. Follow some guidelines to see if your child is ready for this checkup.
- When he complains about how uncomfortable the diaper is
- When you notice that the diaper is getting drier when changing
- When, when removing the diaper, your child manages to control his urge to urinate, after asking you
- When your child knows how to differentiate the urge to urinate or evacuate.
