Potty training

Rasanya Darin dah bole start potty training kan? Sebab she's 2 now and I think I can slowly can train her so mana tahu she tak payah pakai diapers before her age turn 3 kan? Cuba jaya jer. I heard people said, some children aren't interested in potty training until they're closer to 3 or even 4. Hurmmm....So let's try this to Darin. Who knows Darin got better luck this time. hehehe. So I did some browsing and research on potty training. We must do this checklist to measure our child readiness. So tak payah la neves sgt (I'm having this panic-mum-syndrome since Darin was born. so shadap! haha).

Physical signs
  • Can walk and run steadily.
  • Urinates a fair amount at one time.
  • Has regular, well-formed bowel movements at relatively predictable times.
  • Has "dry" periods of at least two hours or more, which shows that her bladder muscles are developed enough to hold urine.
Behavioral signs
  • Can sit down quietly in one position for two to five minutes.
  • Can pull her pants up and down. Dislikes the feeling of wearing a wet or dirty diaper.
  • Shows interest in others' bathroom habits (wants to watch you go to the bathroom or wear underwear).
  • Gives a physical or verbal sign when she's having a bowel movement such as grunting, squatting, or telling you.
  • Demonstrates a desire for independence.
  • Takes pride in her accomplishments.
  • Isn't resistant to learning to use the toilet.
  • Is in a generally cooperative stage, not a negative or contrary one.
Cognitive signs
  • Can follow simple instructions, such as "sit on your potty chair."
  • Understands the value of putting things where they belong.
  • Has words for urine and stool.
  • Understands the physical signals that mean she has to go and can tell you before it happens or even hold it until she has time to get to the potty.
Challenging enough? So think deep deep before you wanna 'make' one! hahahahahaha.
