Infant potty training

Anyone ever heard of this? This is what they used to do back in the olden days and some people still do it today in some parts of the world. Very few people do it in our country.
No wonder I was confused when I was little? My mother puts me in diapers and then she decides to take them away when I was two but no I was taught to go in my pants so I kept on doing that so she figured I wasn’t ready and put me back in them.

  1. Newborn babies ARE incontinent.

FALSE: The average newborn child has a fully functioning excretory system. What they do not have is the mental ability to understand what or how to react to their bladder or bowel needs. As a result, they fuss just before voiding. Most babies are placed in diapers and encouraged either by praise after the event OR ignorance before the event to void in diapers. Correspondingly, a newborn associates, due to no other knowledge, that they are supposed to use diapers for their eliminations. This is one of the earliest things that they learn, and why, in most cases, reversing this training is so difficult.

I used to think infant potty training was crazy. Watching your baby every single minute so you can watch for signs when they need to go or taking him or her to the potty every 20 minutes sounds like a nuisance.

Infant potty training

A nuisance, yes, but diapers are expensive if you have to buy them for two years in a row and wait till he/she’s ready.

Infant potty training

A baby should be doing things like learning to crawl, sitting, and walking not sitting on a potty the whole day.
