How to Use Potty Books?

When your child reaches the age of 3, introduce to him these books. The idea is, you don’t want to let him realize that it’s a dedicated training tool. Rather, try to impress upon him as if it were an intrinsic part of their life e.g. keep these books in the washroom all the time.

In a nutshell, introduce these books as an interesting activity for potty time, not something mandatory to be followed every time they go for potty. The rest is the job of the books that how to engage and train. 

FAQs About Potty Books

At What Age Should A Child Be Potty Trained?

At the age of 18 months, many kids start showing signs of potty training capabilities. Some get ready at the age of 2. However, it should be your utmost effort to start their potty training at age 3. This is high time they should start learning how to do it on their own.  

Remember, don’t start this process before the age of 3, if she doesn’t show overarching signs earlier. It’s always going to take time until she reaches the age of 4.

What is the Best Potty Training Method?

Among all the prescribed methods, the best one is:

Make her sit on the potty chair. NO diaper, repeat every third hour. Do it every morning and every time she awakes from the nap.

For boys, there’s an additional opportunity. You can potty train them by asking them to urinate sitting on the potty seat. It helps them understand earlier how to sit for pooping. Afterward, you can move them to stand up for peeing.

When Should A Child Be Completely Potty Trained?

Ideally, if you can train her before the age of 4-5 years, that’s great! 5-6 years is also Okay. But, not after that. 

How Long Do You Let A Toddler Sit on the Potty?

For non-constipated children, it should take a maximum of 2 minutes from the time she starts pooping. For constipated children, it might take up to 5 minutes. After that, let them go off the toilet anyways.
