Taking Off Their Diaper– If your little one is taking off their own diaper when it is dirty, this is a great sign they are ready to be trained. When you take the diaper and put the poop in the toilet, let your child watch you so they can see where the poop goes.

Letting You Know They Have a Dirty Diaper– Even if your child isn’t at the point where they are telling you that they need to use the bathroom, if they are telling you that they have gone in their diaper, this is a good sign. This is an indication that your toddler is aware that they went to the bathroom in their diaper and they do not like the feeling.

Don’t Shut Them Out– Kids love to copy what their mom and dad do, so you can use that to your advantage.  Just like they love to copy your actions when you are on the phone, if they wonder what’s going on when you are in the bathroom, don’t discourage that. They will probably ask questions, so be prepared to answer them.

Using Words They Can Relate To– Obviously, your child is a toddler so their vocabulary isn’t going to be that great, but using words like poo-poo or pee-pee is something they can relate to.

Bowel Movements Are Predictable– Children have regular bowel movements at different times of the day. Some go first thing in the morning when they wake up, others may have one after breakfast or lunch. Others may go right before they head to bed. By knowing when they have their daily bowel movements, you can better predict when to put them on the toilet.
