Child Care Excretion Toilet Training
Toilet training should start at 18 to 20 months after birth.
(1) The priority here is to remove the sense of resistance or fear against when it comes to using the toilet.
1. Show the baby a toilet and explain its usage.
2. A baby who sits on the toilet for the first time feels nervous. You should relieve such anxieties by talking to your baby kindly. Put the toilet in a place where your baby normally plays and help her sit on it with clothes on. Another effective strategy is to compliment your baby the moment she sits on a toilet.
(2) You should not force it.
1. Don't force toilet training on your baby. If nothing comes out even after sitting on the toilet for 5 minutes, take your baby off the toilet. If your baby soils his pants, do not scold him. If he succeeds in using the toilet, make sure you compliment him wholeheartedly.
2. Most importantly, do not make the mistake of forcing your baby to sit on a toilet when he clearly doesn't want to. If he soils his pants, do not scold him but encourage him in a tactful way. If he wants to get up from the toilet, let him do so. When your baby grows enough to control himself, he can go to the toilet by himself.
3. Toilet training can be best achieved when the same person trains a baby at a designated time and place. In this period, the rhythms of bowel movements are established and you can just calculate the time to have your baby use the toilet.
tip. Do not scold your baby for soiling his pants.
1) You should be patient when toilet training a baby who is not yet familiar with it. Even babies who are good at it may make mistakes. Harsh scolding is a no-no. Remember that he or she is just a baby, not an adult. It just takes time to learn.
2) Too strict an approach to toilet training may make your baby grow up to be unconfident, which leads to a depressive or compulsive character. This is because your baby understands your scolding as an indication of you hating his feces and himself.
