    Potty Training

    The Do's and Don'ts of how to effectively handle toilet training for your new-born 

    Written on 10 July 2019

    Do's and Don'ts when Potty Training Your New-born

    There is no definite time to start potty training. But you need to look out for the following signs which indicate that your little one is ready.

    Physical signs: The first thing you want to check is whether your baby can walk or not. You may also want to wait and see if he/ she has a well-formed bowel movement at a particular time.

    Observation: Wait and watch, if your baby can quietly sit at one place for a time period of over five minutes. When a child starts to dislike the feeling of a wet diaper or shows signs of bowel movement, it is a good indicator to start with potty training.

    Other signs: Important behavioural signs include being cooperative, demonstrating the ability to sit at a place and desire for independence.

    Do’s and Don’ts for Potty Training

    Here are a few things you need to bear in mind while working on potty training with your little one.


    • Be patient with your toddler and look for physical and behavioural signs

    • Make it fun and motivational to perform this activity. You can also motivate by offering a reward every time this activity is completed

    • Do have an emergency kit in hand such as extra underwear, shirts, socks, plastic bags and wet wipes

    • Discuss with your doctor and don’t be afraid to seek advice, if you see any potential problems


    • Don’t push or insist constantly when you start

    • Don’t aim to successfully teach at one go

    • Don’t compare your child with other children

    • Don’t show any signs of frustration or eagerness

    • Don’t set any deadlines, be realistic with your training expectations

    • Don’t use clothes which can be difficult to manage

    • Don’t worry too much, these things take time

    Potty training requires patience with your young ones and helping them to learn, which is also a step towards making them more independent.
