Potty Training an 18 month old

 

Perhaps you’re completely tired of changing diapers. Maybe you have another baby on the way and you’d like to be on diaper duty for ONE kid. Or, maybe you just love an extra challenge in life.

Whatever it may be, you find yourself wanting to potty train.

I’m here to tell you that it can be done. And it can be done long before your tot is “ready”. I’m a firm believer that potty training is just like any other training we do with our kids. Yes, they need to have the fine motor skills to hold a spoon and feed themselves, but we do train them to eat real food. Yes, they have to be stable enough to take that first step, but we train them to do so. Same goes with tying shoes and riding bikes. We train our children for these things. And we train them to use the toilet to go potty in.

 

(Of course, I’m also fully aware that every child and family is different. There are sometimes reasons beyond our control that a particular child will not or cannot train easily to use the toilet to potty in. Every child has their own abilities and temperaments. Also, family lifestyle plays a role. Some families just cannot take the time to train a younger child because of schedules that won’t allow for staying home for several days. All of these are okay.)

 

In general, you can train your toddler to use the potty and it doesn’t have to be a nightmare. My 3 oldest were all potty trained before the age of 2. My kids are pretty close together in age, so I was adamant about not having 2 or more in diapers at the same time!

 

If you're looking to potty train your 18 month old, know that it can be done!

 

My youngest daughter was 18 months old when she was potty trained. It took a long two weeks for her to completely understand the concept and start using the potty, but it was totally worth the constant pee puddles because she was potty trained (by potty trained, I mean that she could hold her pee/poop long enough to get to the toilet, she could let me or another adult know she had to go, and she rarely had accidents) a month before our baby arrived!

 

Potty Training Tips:

Begin with the end in mind: Like any good business plan, you want to think about the end result. Obviously, a potty trained kid. Thinking about what you want to accomplish, the end result, will help you stay focused on the task and keep you from letting those unsuccessful days stop you from going on.

Create a game plan: What day will you start? How will you approach the whole thing (leisurely, letting her go at her own pace? Or just attacking the situation head on?)? What tactics will you use to get your kid to the potty and keep her there? Will there be an award for success (sticker chart, piece of candy, high five)?

Talk it up: Tell your tiny tot what the plan is. Whether they fully understand what you’re saying or not, let them in on this new adventure. Talk it up for a day or two (or longer). When someone else in your family is using the toilet, tell your toddler what is happening and then say “In [so many days] you get to put your pee pee in the potty too!!”.

Gather your supplies: Potty training is a messy endeavor. It just is. So do yourself a favor and go buy all the fun cleaning supplies before you begin. We just used the stuff for cleaning up after pets, but you can also find products with natural ingredients, or do a google search for making your own products if you’re into that sort of thing.

2 of my 3 kids potty trained in carpeted areas. I didn't prefer this because it was easier to miss. But you work with what you have.

Get cleaning supplies, wash cloths or paper towels, maybe some air freshener. But then include your tot in getting the fun stuff: the potty seat, big kid undies, stickers, the bribery snack! Let him help you and hopefully it’ll create even more excitement for the big day (of course, depending on your kid, he may not even care about those things, or even be aware of the "fun stuff".)

Come up with a key phrase: Have a mantra for your toddler, something you say every time he pees (whether on the potty or not). For me, I would always say something like “Good job! That’s pee pee! Pee pee goes in the potty now!”.

Just a general phrase that lets your kiddo know that what they are currently doing (peeing) is a good thing, but it actually goes in the potty and not on the floor (or anywhere else for that matter!).

Put on a happy face: Listen, potty training (and it’s many failures) can take a toll on a person. I know first hand how incredibly frustrating it can be to constantly clean up pee off the floor. When your toddler is consistently just NOT using the potty seat that is literally a foot away, you may just want to scream. Your feelings are legit. But don’t give in to them! Plaster a smile on your face and repeat your key phrase.

Tots will personalize those feelings of frustration, and you don’t want to give them a reason to resist using the potty. Let them see that potty training is fun ALL THE TIME (But don’t worry, us moms know the truth! Ha!).

Be consistent: This might be the most important thing. Consistency pays off. It really does. Once you start potty training, do not stop. It may take your tot a weekend to grasp the concept, but it might also take a week or two. Don’t give up!

My first daughter was literally potty trained in 3 days! But my second daughter….it took a good 2 weeks! I cannot tell you how many times I wanted to throw in the towel. But I continued to think with the end in mind (my goal was to have her potty trained before our 4th was born), and so we pressed on. One day, into the second week, something just clicked with her and she totally got it!

Be consistent and don’t stop!

Relax and have fun: Honestly, if you’re relaxed about the whole thing, so will your toddler. Make it fun for him. Be excited. When your kid starts to pee on the floor, quickly pick him up and take him to the potty all the while using your key phrase.

Don’t scold for peeing on the floor. Always be excited, even if your kid doesn’t make it to the toilet for awhile (this goes back to consistency. Every time pick your kid up and take him to the potty as he’s peeing. Praise him for going. Remind him it goes in the potty now. Always. Every time.).

Get everyone involved: If there are older siblings, use them to your advantage! My 2 oldest LOVED helping their little sister learn to use the potty. Why? Because they got something out of it. M&M’s! If Miss E successfully went on the potty, EVERYONE was rewarded. It keeps the enthusiasm high and gives incentive to be on the lookout!

Take the show on the road: When your toddler has made some promising steps in the direction of being fully potty trained, get out of the house! Go for a quick outing (like, really quick!).

Make sure it’s a place with a bathroom though! Head to the store. Have your little one go to the bathroom as soon as you get there, spend a few minutes in the store, and then have your tot go to the bathroom again before leaving.

You’ll never know how far you’ve come (or haven’t yet come) if you don’t leave the safety of your home. Try taking your little one to church on Sunday with only big kid undies on!

Put a potty seat in your vehicle: When I tell people that we have a little toilet in our van, I can just see the looks of disgust that they are trying to mask. I get it, it’s weird, it’s gross. But it’s also been a life saver! I may look like that crazy hot mess mom with a portable toilet in my minivan, but it has saved me countless times of having to find a restroom AND needing to take 4 kids into a bathroom so ONE can go. Not only that, it’s great for roadtrips with littles when you don’t want to stop at a million gas stations!

Don't use pull-ups: I despise pull-ups! In my opinion, they are totally useless when it comes to potty training. A pull-up is a diaper. Let’s not kid ourselves. It’s a fancier and more expensive diaper. It feels the same to your toddler. And my experience is that when I put my potty training kid into a diaper, they pee in it. Don’t confuse your kiddo by putting them in a pull-up during the day.

(Now, 2 of my 3 toddlers/preschoolers are potty trained during the day, but still need diapers at night and during naps. In this case, diapers are fine. Pull-ups are fine too, but again...more expensive! And, of course, when traveling everything changes. It's all about convenience. Our roadtrips to visit family are 12+ hours long, so I will use pull-ups on the kids that still need them when sleeping. Nobody wants to wake a sleeping kid to put a pull-up or diaper on them!).

Remember that this is not YOUR achievement: It’s your kids. Don’t grow frustrated when he doesn’t go on the potty. It takes time, but it WILL happen. Again…be consistent. Make it fun. And when you DO grow frustrated, because you probably will, don’t let your kid see that. Whip out your key phrase and plant that smile on your face “Good job, that’s pee pee! Pee pee goes in the potty now!”.

Alright, you’ve got this mama! Get out there and let the messes potty training begin!

12 Potty Training Tips for the Confused Mom

There are lots of tips out there for potty training your toddler. Let me help you sort through the confusing mess and make life much easier for you and your offspring.

My top 12 Tips:

1. Potty train in the Summer- If you potty train your bambino in the summer, you can just let him be naked outside all day long. No worrying about leaks and accidents and spills. After all, it’s nature!

2.    Do not potty train in the summer- children running around naked?! While it seems like a good idea in theory, it’s really pretty terrible. Toddlers fall a lot. Sidewalks can hurt WITH clothes on, so just imagine what it’d be like if you fell on the sidewalk while you were running as fast as you can after a blowing leaf…while naked!

3. Let your child be naked from the waist down while at home- It’s important for your toddler to know when he or she is going pee. If you put on pull-ups or even underwear, it may hinder them from feeling the pee.

4. Don’t let your toddler run around naked, even at home- Put on underwear so that your toddler will be uncomfortable in wet undies, should he or she have an accident. It will help them realize that pee pee goes in the potty, not in their pants.

5. Don’t use a timer to make your child go to the bathroom every 15-30 minutes- This will only cause your child to be annoyed with the potty and have no desire for it whatsoever!

6. Use a timer to take your child to the bathroom every 15-30 minutes- For one thing, YOU may need a reminder to take your child to the potty. Plus, if you give your kiddo ample opportunities to use the potty, they will get the concept quicker

7. Give your toddler lots of juice- If you fill up your tyke with lots and lots of fluids, he or she will have to go to the bathroom often. This is great because they will have many chances to try to get the pee pee in the potty! The more often that they are using it, the more likely they are to grasp the concept.

8. Do not overdue the drinks- Kids learn better when they are doing things naturally. It’s not natural for them to have to use the potty every 15 minutes. And really, it’s just annoying to have to go the bathroom that often. This approach will quickly make your toddler resent the potty.

9. Use Bribes- Do what you can to make the potty fun and exciting for your precious one. Use candy, stickers, bubbles, whatever your kids favorite thing is…use that! Bribery works wonders to get kids to use the potty!

10.  Do not bribe your kids- Your child will use the potty when he or she wants to. Bribery only causes more problems in the long run.

11.  Don’t start too early- Your toddler will learn to use the potty when he or she is ready. All the coaxing, bribing and excitement you can bring to the whole experience won’t do a darn thing if your kid isn’t ready!

12.  Start when you want to- Potty training is like any other kind of training. Your kid will learn as you teach him or her. The same with learning to use utensils, learning to tie shoes or ride a bike. We don’t stop teaching them when they don’t do it right the first few times. Learning takes time and patience.

I hope that helped clear up a few things for you. The internets, with its gamut of information can be overwhelming to a mommy as she’s trying to figure out this whole potty training thing.

And relax! This was meant as a joke. We are all just as confused as the next mom. So when one of these tips isn't working, try the opposite approach. I'm certain your precious tyke will eventually be potty trained. And if not...well then count your blessings because you will get to have your kid/teenager/adult at home with you forever!

Here's my own potty training story with Miss Fits. And when you do find yourself in full blown potty training mode, don't forget to have some fun (and write down the many many funny stories!)

Potty Training Take Two: Boy Edition

Let’s just be honest here. Nobody is thrilled to begin potty training. You may be excited at first about the prospects of no more diapers, and you may eagerly shop for those big kid undies and a brand new toddler potty chair.

But that first day….it’s dreadful. And that first day you kick yourself and wonder why you even attempted this stupid thing in the first place. Diapers aren’t that bad, right? 2 in diapers is manageable, isn’t it?!

But alas, you already started and in order to avoid really messing with your poor child (who up until this morning was perfectly content using a diaper), you push on.

And hopefully….hopefully soon your little one will catch on and grasp the concept that pee pee and poo poo now goes in the potty.

My first time around was a piece of cake. Like…literally, in the amount of time I ate a piece of cake Jaelyn was potty trained. Okay, that’s a bit dramatic. But just a bit. It took a weekend. It was easy and I was so impressed by her. She was, after all, only 19 months.

This time, however, I was less optimistic. I cannot tell you the number of people who told me that potty training boys was a LOT harder than it was with girls. And I witnessed it first hand through friends and family, so I knew it wasn’t just what people said. It was legit. Potty training a boy seemed like it was a much bigger task than a girl.

I was planning on putting it off as long as possible, when suddenly Phil was like “let’s potty train him today!”. What?! Potty train him today? What does that mean? You can’t just suddenly start potty training! I need to do research. Gobs and gobs of research. I need techniques and ideas and ways to bribe him to put his pee pee in the potty. I need a sticker chart. I need a treat for him. I need to go shopping for big boy undies. I need to talk to him about all of this for a week or two before we even begin. How dare I just suddenly spring this on him! Start potty training him today?! Nonsense!

But I took his lead and waited until Sunday after nap because I knew that I wouldn’t have anywhere to go for several days.

I bought big boy undies and m&m’s and talked up the whole thing to him the entire weekend. I did my gobs of research, but in the end I decided we would just take a very casual approach to it. Mostly for my own benefit. Having a baby makes it especially difficult to be attentive to pee and poop signals from a toddler all day long. By casual I mean we weren't over zealous to get him to use the potty. If he did, he did. If not, I really didn't care. I was just going to let him go at his own pace.

I reminded myself that this was Pax’s achievement, not mine, and whatever progress he did or did not make, I wasn’t going to be frustrated or annoyed.

Day 1 (after naptime): Explained what we were doing. I showed him the new little potty seat and we set up in the living room. I didn’t do anything extra like fill him up with drinks (he drinks a ton on his own anyway). We just did our normal routine, sans diaper for the little guy. We waited (or I waited) for something to happen. For me, that first pee is the most important. I wanted him to start going so that I could quickly let him know that that was pee pee and it now goes in this cool little potty over here.

He was super interested in the potty. And by interested, I mean he wanted to stand on it and jump off. He didn’t want to sit on it.

That first day we had many accidents on the floor. And I had to remind myself that it was just day one and that this was all part of it. But who likes to clean up pee off the floor?!

Day 2: Woke up and immediately took off diaper and tried to sit on the potty. Again, he doesn’t like sitting on it. He just wants to play with it.

We have zero success on this day. No pee pee in the potty, but LOTS on the floor.

Days 3: We ditch the little potty. He won’t sit on it to go. Oddly, the big potty is appealing to him (perhaps because everyone else in the house uses it). I know that he has to go, so I sit him on the potty and turn on the water in the bathtub. He thinks its funny and IT DOES THE TRICK! The kid pees in the potty!!

We go overboard on the praise and the excitement, even getting Jaelyn involved. Then we bring out the m&m’s! Pax gets one and so does Jaelyn. This makes the excitement level go through the roof and Jaelyn is now totally on board with helping Pax go pee pee on the potty.

Days 4-6: Much of the same. He knows when he has to go and it’s now a matter of getting to the potty before he pees. When he does, everyone is excited and clapping for joy (the kids are basically excited for an m&m). Pax had his first poop on the potty and it was quite the amazing ordeal! 3 m&m’s for that one!

He’s hooked! He loves it (or does he love the candy?!)

By this time I've ditched my causal approach. He's gotten the hang of it, he knows what's going on and so we press on full force. I'm consistently watching for pee/poop signals (though I do miss some because...well, having an infant makes things a tad more difficult), and we're making every effort to get to the potty in time.

Day 7: It’s Sunday and so we head to church. I decide this will be our first experience out with no diaper. Sorry nursery staff, you’re part of our experiment this morning!

I take him potty before we send the kids into the nursery. No go. Now I’m feeling nervous. But, we press on. I tell the sweet ladies that he is potty training (I get that quizzical look because he’s still one at this point), and that he’s not wearing a diaper. And I smile real big. Because that helps, right?

After service I come back to find that he has not had an accident! He didn’t go for them, but he also didn’t pee his pants. I whisk him to the bathroom and he goes for me!

                                                      First day of zero accidents!                                     (That is m&m drool running down his chin...)

                                                      First day of zero accidents!

                                   (That is m&m drool running down his chin...)

It’s been over a month now and I can honestly and happily say that Pax is potty trained. He knows when he has to go and will just go to the bathroom on his own (although, we have to be on the look out for that because if left to his own devices he will play in the toilet…). He goes pee and poop in the big potty. In fact, he has abandoned the potty seat that goes on top of the big seat and will now only go on the big seat. Which is quite comical.

We no longer give m&m’s for going- mostly because we ran out one day and never got anymore. The kids were upset for about 3 seconds and then quickly forgot about it. Pax still asks for m&m’s on occasion, but still continues to go without getting that reward.

              The First time we were out of m&m's. Mean mugging mommy.

              The First time we were out of m&m's. Mean mugging mommy.

Here are my tips for potty training (boy or girl):

-       Be consistent: Once you start, don’t stop. There are days that it’s going to get super annoying and frustrating. There are times when you will just really want your kid to be in a diaper out of convenience (like when you leave the house). Just grit your teeth and remind yourself that it won’t last forever. The more consistent you are, the quicker it will be.

-       Relax and have fun: Honestly, if you’re relaxed about the whole thing, so will your kid. Make it fun for him. Be excited. When you’re kid starts to pee on the floor, quickly pick him up and take him to the potty all the while saying something like “Good job, that’s pee pee! Pee pee goes in the potty now!”. Don’t scold for peeing on the floor. Always be excited, even if your kid doesn’t make it to the toilet for awhile (this goes back to consistency. Every time pick your kid up and take him to the potty as he’s peeing. Praise him for going. Remind him it goes in the potty now. Always. Every time.)

-       Use what your kid loves: Jaelyn has always been a t.v. head. It worked well to plant her in front of the t.v. for a weekend, with the potty seat in the living room. Pax does not watch t.v. He loves snacks. It worked well to bribe him with m&m’s.

-       Get your older kids involved: Obviously if it’s your first kid, you can’t get an older sibling involved. If you do, use that to your advantage! Jaelyn was excited to get Pax to use the potty and to cheer for him when he did go because she also got something in return. Older siblings are priceless.

-       Get some good carpet cleaner :-)

-       Remember that this is not YOUR achievement. It’s your kids. Don’t grow frustrated when he doesn’t go on the potty. It takes time, but it WILL happen. Again…be consistent. Make it fun. And when you DO grow frustrated, because you probably will, don’t let your kid see that. Whip out your key phrase and plant that smile on your face “Good job, that’s pee pee! Pee pee goes in the potty now!”.

You know you're in the throes of potty training when...

Potty training. Ah, that beloved time that all parents get to go through at some point in their lives (unless you somehow manage to find someone to do it for you!). It's a right of passage, to be sure.
We all have our own potty training stories- the ups and downs, the bribes, the spills, the stains. And ultimately, the excitement of being trained!

It's always good to take a light-hearted approach to potty training. It's important to see the humor in having pee all over your floors, couch, clothes, on your hands, on your favorite book, even on your new baby!

And so, without further ado, You know you're in throes of potty training when:

1. You utter the phrase "Pee pee goes in the potty, not on the floor!" for the 100th time in one day, as you plaster a big fake smile on your face (you smile of course, because you don't want your baby to associate pee pee as a bad thing...or whatever that internet article said)

2. You immediately assume that anything wet on the floor, on the couch, on your pants, on anything is pee

3. You find stickers on every surface of your house, EXCEPT the sticker chart that you so artistically made

4. Going to the bathroom becomes a family affair- everyone gets to watch and cheer

5. Using the potty becomes the highlight of your day because EVERYONE cheers for you (especially your toddler who seems overly pleased that you had success).

6. You find yourself saying "Yay, mommy went pee pee on the potty" even if no one else is around

7. You go potty and immediately reward yourself with an m&m

8. You time your outings based on when your toddler last peed and how much fluid she had

9. You know where every bathroom is in a 10 mile radius of your house

10. Somebody farts (maybe your husband, but has also been known to happen when you're in the bathroom stall at Wal-mart and the lady next to you must have accidentally let one out as she was relieving herself) and your toddler yells "Poo poo!", causing you much embarrassment

11. You assumed incorrectly that once potty trained, you could get rid of the diaper bag. Rather, you almost need a BIGGER one because suddenly you need 2 changes of clothes to be on the safe side, plastic bags, and maybe even that plastic potty seat to put on top of the public toilets if you're a germ freak like me!

12. You used to let your toddler just play in the crib for awhile when she woke up in the morning or from her nap, but now you rush in immediately so you can take her potty

13. Your toddler hasn't peed in the potty for a few hours and you wonder to yourself where she may have stashed it. You step in something wet....(see #2)

I hope you had a laugh.Or even just a chuckle. If you're a bit confused about all of the potty training tips out there, read my blog on Potty Training tips for the Confused Mom. If you'd like to read about my own potty training story, read my blog on how I potty trained Miss Fits.

And, of course, if you have any of your own to add, please feel free to do so!

Pee pee goes in the potty

Potty training. I was both excited and nervous to begin the adventures in potty training with my daughter. Excited to not have two kids in diapers. Nervous about the actual process and how it would go.

Here is my story in successfully potty training my daughter by 20 months:

We started introducing the potty concept when she was 13 months old. Just every once in a while I would sit her on it and we would talk about it. She was curious about it anyway whenever I would go to the bathroom.

I attempted to start when she was just 17 months old. But…I didn’t think it all the way through. We were about to start traveling almost every week to raise support, as well as for the upcoming holidays. So in order to be consistent with her and not confuse the poor kid, I decided to wait until we moved to Texas and got settled.

When we finally moved 2 months later, I came up with a plan. I decided to try and make the potty as fun as possible! Everything I read online said that kids would potty train when THEY were ready, and if they weren’t…well then it would just be terrible for everyone.

I kind of have a different theory. Potty training is just like any other kind of training that we do with our babies and toddlers. We have to teach them! We taught them how to use a spoon and a fork, how to drink from cup, how to self-soothe. You teach your kids how to read and write, ride a bicycle, etc etc. Potty training is just the same. It has to be taught.

But learning also needs to be fun. If it’s not fun, then why would a toddler want to do it? If we don’t make it fun for them, then yes…it will end up being terrible for everyone.

Another thing to remember is that this isn’t your achievement, it’s your toddlers. Don’t get frustrated or upset with him because he doesn’t get it or doesn’t do it. It’s not about you, it’s about your little person! Give lots of praise and act like it’s the most exciting thing anyone can ever do!

Here’s how I potty trained little Miss Fits before she turned 20 months:

I started on a Friday and I determined that we were just going to have fun with it. The problem we had previously was that she just didn’t want to sit on it. So I made sitting on the potty super fun for her.

Every time she sat on the potty that day I would paint one of her toenails and one of my toenails. She LOVED it! After she had sat on it 10 times, I switched to bubbles. I would let her play with the bubbles every time she sat on the potty. But…that quickly got messy. She wanted to hold everything and the bubbles spilled everywhere.

I also praised here a TON when she sat on it- like a ridiculous amount. Like she had just won the Nobel Peace Prize or discovered that Pluto is, in fact, a planet. I went overboard! And she got really excited about it too.

The next morning I took off her diaper NEVER to put one on her again (okay, that’s not true. We still use diapers for naps and night time)!

I explained that pee pee goes in the potty- not in her pants, not on the floor. And any time she would start to pee or pee all the way I would say “Yay! Pee pee!” and take her to the potty. Then I would tell her again (in a chipper voice) that pee pee goes in the potty.

If she did go in the potty (even if she started peeing somewhere else and finished in the potty), I would over praise her and then give her an m&m. I explained that if she went in the potty, she would get an m&m. She loved it!

I kid you not, the child got the concept that day! Any time she needed to go, she would run to the potty and sit down. All by herself! She was so excited about it!

The next day was Sunday and I was a bit nervous because we had church. I contemplated putting a diaper on her, but then thought better of it. I had said no more diapers and I meant NO MORE DIAPERS! So I put on her big girl undies, some plastic pants and her jeans. And off to church we went!

I told the nursery she was potty training and to please take her several times. Jaelyn doesn’t say when she needs to go, she just goes to the potty and sits down. Kind of hard if there aren’t any little potty chairs just hanging around the nursery.

When I picked her up they said they had taken her once, but she didn’t need to go. I took her again before we left, but she didn’t have to go. I was nervous she would pee in the car. But lo and behold, she did not!

Our first outing and she didn’t have an accident!

The following week she did great! Seriously. I don’t understand it, but this kid was potty trained. I continue to say she is potty training, but truthfully she is already trained! I don’t know how it happened in such a short amount of time, but she really grasped the concept!

That first week she would have an accident if she had on undies or pants. This is simply because she just wouldn’t pull them down. She’d still sit on the potty and go- just fully clothed.

It has been over a month now and we very rarely have accidents. She has learned to pull her pants down now before sitting on the potty.

Our next step is transitioning the little potty into the bathroom and eventually using the big potty! Currently she insists that her potty chair be in the living room. I have put her potty in the bathroom several times, but every time she has to pee she will literally pick it up and carry it back to the living room before using it.

So that’s my story in potty training. If you are considering potty training your toddler (even if they are younger than when most parents start), I say go for it! It might take a while, but consistency and fun always pays off!

So grab your mop and nail polish and go have some fun!

Enjoy some free potty training sticker charts! Or use the certificates to reward your child at the end of each day (simply hand out a reward certificate for each successful potty attempt, give a reward for a certain number achieved at the end of the day! *works great with older toddlers).
