Upheavals

Upheavals At Home

It's not a good idea to start potty training if you are in the middle of upheavals at home, such as a new baby, a new job, or moving house. It is usually better to postpone potty training during these times, even if your child is showing signs hat he is ready to use the potty.

Moving house

Children need to feel secure for successful toilet training and if things are all upside down and at sixes and sevens they won't know what is expected of them. Not to mention that if you're in the process of moving house you might not even be able to find the potty!

So don't try and potty train just before or just after moving. Give it a few weeks even if it seems that your child is really ready to learn. You don't want to put you and your child under additional stress by tackling this milestone while trying to cope with the sort of disruption moving house entails.

Your new job

If you have a new job or a promotion, you will be under a certain amount of stress and may not be able to be calm enough or have sufficient time to help your child with potty training. Wait a little while and then when you are used to your new routine and can take a long weekend break, use that time to potty train.

A new baby

If your child is already potty trained you may find that he will revert back to more babyish behavior, including having ‘accidents,' if you have a new baby in the house. He may feel that you obviously prefer having a baby who wears a diaper, than a big boy or girl who wears underpants and uses a potty. Otherwise why else would you have another baby?

Take this in your stride and give your ‘big one' lots of reassurance that you still love him or her. Give individual time and attention to your older child, choosing activities that have nothing to do with baby and diaper changing. Choose things that only an older child can do. This will help children see the advantages of being the big brother or older sister and stop wanting to revert to babyhood.

On vacation

This can be the ideal time to train your child. If on the other hand your child is already trained, be prepared for accidents by bringing along a protective sheet for the mattress, lots of changes of clothing, and your child's potty or potty chair. It will be easier for him to cope with than an unfamiliar toilet in a strange place. You may also want to give him frequent gentle reminders that he needs the potty, as he may become so engrossed in all the exciting things to do that he ‘forgets' to go.

At relatives

If your children frequently visit their grandparents or aunts and uncles, you may want to keep a potty for them there. That way they have the reassurance of the familiar and you don't have the bother of remembering to pack it!

Remember that to be successful at potty training, all you need is to be calm, patient and follow the ideas in this guide.
