Our top goal when it comes to toilet training is to ensure it is a positive experience for both you and your child. Often children have a fear associated with the toilet. However, do not worry, typically this is not related to an experience and has more to do with the new experience of using the toilet. We should remember the toilet is, loud and uncomfortable to sit on, going in a pull up is much easier! We are also disrupting your child’s routine; they were and poo when and where they want in their pull up.
If your child is showing signs of fear and nerves, reducing this fear is the starting point for toilet training and the most important step in setting your child up for success!
Start by taking trips to the toilet without any expectation to do anything except sit on the toilet, gradually build the expectation to sitting and voiding on the toilet. Depending on your child, the first step may be for your child to stand beside the toilet in their clothes without getting upset, the next step could be sitting on the step in their clothes then sitting on the toilet in their clothes. Taking it step by step until your child is sitting on the toilet with no pull-up or undies! The key to success is lots of praise!! Let your child know how fantastic and brave they are for each step they make towards sitting on the toilet. Only move to the next step, when there are no signs of crying, shouting or refusal. This may take a few days to weeks. Go at your child’s pace.
Some tips to help your child feel relaxed in the bathroom and to have it as a place associated with fun rather than dread:
