Five Ready Signs to Start Potty Training

Starting new things for your child sometime difficult, but you still have to do it. Potty training is one phase that your child has to go through. So, find out when is your child ready for potty training. Here are those five ready signs:

1. Takes Off Own Clothes

Let's face it. The first step to becoming dry begins with your toddler's ability to recognize he has to go to the bathroom. The second step is his ability to pull down his pants, or lift up her dress. The third step is actually going to use the potty. If your child begins insisting on taking off his clothes then he probably is ready to begin training for the potty.

2. Talks about Using the Potty

He may say, "I want to use the potty." Or, he may just point to it and sit down. Either case he is showing an extreme interest in the little chair. Well, what do you do if he's interested in sitting; maybe he'll be interested in using it. You never know unless you try. Hey diapers are expensive why spend more on them if you don't have to.

3. Does a Potty Dance?

There are some children doing potty dance? Does your little one have a routine? Does he stomp, turn, twist, and grab his groin like Michael Jackson? If he does, then that's his potty dance. He's ready, ready, and ready if he has his own version and he dances it whether there's music on or not.

4. Shows an Interest in the Bathroom or Toilet

This is the big koruna of all ready signs. The big earthquake so to speak. If your child is curious about the bathroom or toilet, then he's ready to learn how to use it. Is he curious about how it flushes? Well, that's because he wants to know how that giant white chair works. Why does it make that sound? It's a noise like no other. He's not being bad when you have to drag him out of the toilet. He wants to know what the toilet is. He wants to know how it works. He is ready, ready, and ready for potty training.

5. Stays Dry Overnight & During Naps

This is a hard readiness sign to understand. If you child staying dry overnights and at naptime that is the sign that he is ready for potty training. In any event, your child is ready if he displays this sign.

Now, does your child exhibit any two of these ready signs? If so, then get ready to do your potty training. You will never know those signs if you are not pay attention to their reaction.
