Yuriean - posted on 06/10/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have a 2 year old and a 1 year old, both boys. I have been trying to get them potty trained for about 2 months now. They have their days where I feel like they will be out of diapers tomorrow, and then the next day the won't even sit on the potty!!. If one of them refuses so does the other. It has become very stressful for me and I was wondering if any of you have any advice for me??

Please stop! Chidren have no control over bladder and bowel until the age of 2. You may get some success because it is luck. All you are doing is stressing your children out over something there tiny bodies can not control. The adverage age to potty train is from 2 year 4 months to 2 years 8 months. If your child is not showing any signs of being able to use the toilet, or does not have a dry nappy for long periods of time, or refuses to wear a nappy then they are not ready.

Stop! A child that is ready to potty train can be trained in two weeks! This is too much pressure for them. Step back and wait for them to come to you and be ready. Let them be babies and you will have more success and less stress.
