How to potty train a toddler in three days

I know when my daughter was about to turn 3 that I completely had my full of diapers.  The other kids at daycare were moving up to the bigger class and they wouldn’t move my daughter up until she was trained.  Peer pressure seemed to help me get the job done as well as just putting her in underwear over a weekend and letting her have accidents until we were done!  Yay!

 

No pullup diapers

Some moms recommend to never put your child in pullup diapers as that extends the time it takes to complete potty training.  It can triple the amount of time it takes.

Prepare Yourself

You need to be prepared as much as your toddler.  You need to be committed and have all the tools ready.  Part of my success with my daughter was getting a good travel potty so she was never afraid of going into a big public potty.

Potty Training at night

I found it easier to keep a potty in my daughter’s room and get her to wake up and use the potty in order to make it through the night without an accident.

Patience

You know patience is a big tips for everything we do as moms!

Motivation

Use Fun reward charts to keep your toddler excited to see their progress.  Calendars and stickers work perfect for this.
