Potty Training Infant Girls
You may have heard about potty training babies and baby girls. This can sound too soon to some parents or you may be wondering how this is done. How do you potty train a baby girl when she cannot walk or communicate yet.
However, this is actually a very effective way of potty training and one that was actually initially created for children with special needs to make sure that they were potty trained sooner because of other mental and physical limitations.
However, it has become a way to start potty training early for many parents when they need to go back to work, they have multiple children they are taking care of or their child will be in daycare or at a care givers home.
Potty training a baby girl will initially take a little more time on your part, however you can start as young as you like with potty training baby girls. Part of what you are doing is that you are teaching them early on to potty in the toilet instead of a diaper.
We initially teach children to use their diaper as a toilet and than switch them over to using the toilet as they get older. With potty training a baby girl you are taking them straight to the toilet instead.
When you start potty training a baby girl, you will be taking her to the toilet regularly and placing her over it for her to go. Though she is a baby, she will begin to understand that she should go to the bathroom on the toilet, just like a baby understands to go in their diaper.
You will hold her over the toilet and let her go and than place the diaper back on her. You can start by placing her over the toilet with the diaper still on too if you choose to get her used to it and than move to removing the diaper and placing her on the toilet.
You will want to do this throughout the day. First thing in the morning, every half an hour to every hour throughout the day and before bed as well. Also after naps, after eating or drinking too, since children do seem to go shortly after being fed.
Part of what you will be doing too is watching her body language and facial expressions prior to her going. Does she grunt when she poops? Does she close her eyes or scrunch her face up when pooping or peeing?
Does she start to become fussy prior to going? Paying attention to all these movements and facial expressions will start to alert you to when she needs to go. Once she has begun to understand to go on the toilet, even at a young age, she will begin to wait till she is taken to the toilet to go, since she has learned that this is where she is suppose to go to the bathroom.
