Part of Potty Training For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Your toddler will eventually be potty trained, and maybe sooner than you expect if you can devote a weekend to the training process. Recognize your child’s small successes, and know that when you start seeing the behaviors in the following list, your child is nearly trained:

  • He tells you when he’s gone in his undies.

  • She goes to the potty chair, sits down, and tries.

  • He has racked up a string of successful potty trips.

  • She’s proud of her new, big-girl undies and likes them clean and dry.
