How to Know It's Time to Begin Potty Training Your Child
If your child indicates that they "know" when they are going potty, it is time to start potty training. There are clues to look for that will save you time and money on diapers. If they alert you by saying, "I pooped", you've waited too long
I have potty-trained three of my five children, although I had to clean up some of the "messes" of the other two that I did not give birth to. I'll tell you what... it is much easier to potty train a child when they are ready than it is to clean up the mess of a child who was never properly trained early on. The differences later on in life are vast, and your child will actually give you clues right from the beginning!
If you notice that your child hides, perhaps under a table, or in their room, right before you notice that unmistakable smell, it is time to start potty training. This is a huge indicator that your child is seeking privacy and is well aware of their "movement process".
Some children will alter their walk. Perhaps it's because they don't like the feel of the soiled diaper on their skin, but they are not uncomfortable enough to alert you. My mother will tell you that I was one of these types. She says I would walk around like I was sitting on a bull, perfectly contented. This was in the days of cloth diapers, mind you. What's important to remember is that my mother recognized the signs. Although I gave her no audible clues, she could tell when I had a full hamper.
Anytime a human being experiences discomfort, they alter their behavior. Children are just little human beings. If you watch them carefully, they will give you indicators that they are in discomfort. Some may even positively point out that they need their privacy by hiding. Whatever the case, your child is indicating that they know that some sort of action has just transpired, or is about to transpire in their diaper. However, unless we show them how to properly displace their discomfort, how would they ever know about the convenience of a potty?
Potty training is not something natural to humans. However, the process of elimination is. And just like big people, as we can feel when we are about to "go", children learn that feeling naturally as well. What they don't know instinctively is what to do about it in reference to a potty. If you marry the signs of their natural behavior with logic and instruction, you can produce a child who is happy to learn a different process.
If you wait until your child has developed enough to tell you, "Mom, I pooed", be ready for a challenge. If they are old enough to tell you that you need to change his or her diaper, you could quickly encounter a power struggle. Not only can you become the "clean up" crew, but your child might very well use the lack of potty training skills as a method of comfort. This is true for the older siblings of newborns, as well as the only child. If they can tell you, "Wipe me..." they are certainly able to perform the majority of the work on their own. Be firm on this, or it may become a hygiene issue later. The best thing that you can do for your child is to teach him or her to use their "signals" on the potty.
Again, elimination is human. Toilets are not. Watch your child for the signs that they understand the "feeling", and encourage them to learn another method. You will create a happy, independent child, and save a lot of money on diapers as well!
