This method is just the initial transition from diapers to using the potty, but there is still a long way to go before you’ll child will become accident free.

I got this potty training tip from my mother in law: it’s never to soon to start using rewards.

There are a couple of things you need to do to prepare yourself for the toilet training process:

  1. don’t put pressure on your child by having too many expectations
  2. take in consideration everything that might possibly go wrong and plan ahead
  3. do not compare your child with other children who have already been potty trained.

When I potty trained my little girl, I made so many mistakes I thought it would take forever, but she actually got the hang of it pretty quick. I think this was that despite all the failures we had, there was always a positive attitude.

Here’s a video from Jennifer Morgan @ Project Potty Training discussing the 3 day method for toilet training. You can check out her Youtube channel for more potty training tips.

As for preparing your toddler to start potty training, just make sure he knows the words for pee or poo, potty. Also it helps if he or she is familiar with the bathroom and the potty chair.
