Is your toddler ready for potty training?
The average age for potty training is anywhere from 18-30 months and girls typically around 29 months and boys around 31 months. In addition to age, which we all know is a range to use as a guideline, there are multiple developmental signs every parent should look for to help encourage the process and know before the potty training process begins. Potty training is not a task for the faint of heart. Parents should prepared well in advance and understand what to expect as it can be a long, tedious, and even discouraging process. In fact, The average child takes 3 months to fully potty train and some children can take up to a year or more to be fully trained during the day and through the night. Regression is normal for a child during potty training. Once you think your job is done, it isn’t always the case. Any type of change to their life or daily routine and various stressors or disruption in their life can set them back to a pre-trained state. Moving homes or rooms, starting a new school or daycare, a new sibling, dietary changes, deployment, vacation or family members visiting, and even a parent that travels a lot for business. It may seem like they are having difficulty out of the blue, and sometimes that is the case, but is a normal part of the potty training process.
So how can you make potty training more fun, rewarding, and easier for you and your child?
The answer is Tot on the Pot! Tot on the Pot is a brand new all inclusive play based potty training solution that simplifies the process for parents and makes it super fun for children. The Tot on the Pot kit comes with a doll, a potty, a Parent Guide, a Children’s book, and Activity Cards!
As a play therapist and positive behavioral support specialist, I love that Tot on the Pot uses play based learning and praise as key concepts for potty training success. I believe utilizing the use of toys and praise to help positively change a child’s behavior is how you will achieve a better behavioral outcome. When it comes to potty training, Tot on the Pot, incorporates both and will not only make potty training fun, but easier and more effective. Tot on the Pot is redefining potty training one poop at a time! And it’s recommended by pediatricians!
The doll comes as a boy or a girl and in both light and dark skin tones. The dolls are soft and cuddly and are also machine washable! The dolls do not eat, drink, pee or poop but are anatomically correct and the underwear can be removed so your child can practice putting on big girl or boy undies with their doll!
The pot is used to mimic the real potty that your child will use simultaneously with their doll. It is not flushable but easy to clean with a wipe or wet paper towel. The pot opens and stores the activity cards.
The activity cards are used each time your child successfully goes to the potty. They help promote motor skills, confidence, sensory awareness, imaginative play, language development, curiosity, and discovery. Each kit comes with 20 activity cards and more will be available for download on the website. You can also download a potty training chart to visually show the successful progress your little one is making on this potty training journey!
