Potty Dolls to Accelerate Potty Training Success


Sometime the most effective training tool in rapidly accelerating the rate of your child's training is a potty doll. This is drink-and-wet a doll with the internal plumbing that simulates the potty process for your child. Generally, dolls with an internal bladder are the most effective. This enables the youngster to gently press on the dolls tummy to make it pee. In order to get started see below:

WHAT YOU NEED TO BEGIN:

-A potty chair

"Big kid" underwear (instead of diapers) Lots of liquids for your child and the doll to drink

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

Development: The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests waiting until 2 years of age to potty train.

Modeling: You can demonstrate or have the doll demonstrate the process of "going potty."

Motivation: Find out who your child's superhero is. The hero will provide the motivation in this process.

POTTY TRAINING INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: POTTY TRAINING DOLL THAT WETS

Your child will learn by teaching the potty doll how to go potty. Have your child name the doll and give it something to drink. Then walk the doll to the potty chair with your child.

Pull the doll's "big kid" underwear down and watch the potty doll go potty together.

STEP 2: CREATE A POTTY PARTY!

When the potty doll successfully goes potty, throw a potty party! Make it a big blowout with party hats, horns and celebrate. Give lots of attention to the doll so that your child understands that going potty is a good thing.

Let your child know that when he/she goes potty, they will have a potty party too. Not only that, your child gets to call their favorite superhero to tell them what they just did!

STEP 3: NO DIAPERS, BIG KID UNDERWEAR

At the beginning of the process you placed "big kid" underwear on your child's doll. Now it's time to take away the diapers and put "big kid" underwear on your child.

STEP 4: DRINK LOTS OF FLUIDS

Give your child plenty of fluids to drink. The sooner he/she has to go potty, the sooner you can begin potty training.

STEP 5: NINE TRIPS TO POTTY WHEN ACCIDENT

Ask your child if he/she needs to go potty. Your child might say no and that's OK. Because you've given your child plenty of fluids, he/she will soon need to go. If your child has an accident in their underwear, don't scold him/her. You want this to be a positive experience.

Take your child to the potty, pull his/her underwear down, and have your child sit down. Do this nine times. This builds muscle memory and your child will eventually go.

STEP 6: CHILD CALLS SUPERHERO

When your child successfully goes potty, throw him/her a potty party. Most importantly, your child can now call his/her favorite superhero and tell the hero about what they just did! Enlist the help of a friend or relative to play the hero and take the phone call.

When your child has an accident, simply take him/her to the bathroom nine times in a row as you did before. This will continue to build his/her muscle memory. And don't forget to keep up the positive reinforcement.
