PottyTraining

The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure your two year old is ready to start sitting on the “Big kid potty”. Some of the signs are that they are ready are, they able to stay dry for up to two hours at a time and show interest in using the “potty”, also if they can tell you they need to go potty here is a link to a check list that you can refer to if needed. http://www.babycenter.com/toilet-training-readiness-checklist-2-years— 

The next thing is to jump in and get started. Get all the equipment you need such as potty chair, pull ups and/underwear and so on. Start a schedule so that your child gets used to going “potty” regularly and stick to it! Positive reinforcement is a must! You can start a sticker chart for then so overtime they go “potty” they get a sticker! You can do the pee pee in the potty dance its silly but kids love it just jump up and down, sing and be so proud of your little one for their big accomplishment! Know that accidents WILL happen and thats ok its all part of learning! 
One last thing make sure everyone who will be caring for your child is on the same page so that they do not get confused and back track. Make it fun and be patient it will happen! 
Good Luck all of you potty training parents!
