You might see signs that your child is ready for toilet training from about two years on. Some children show signs of being ready as early as 18 months, and some might be older than two years. Not all these signs need to be present when your child is ready. If you think your child is showing signs of being ready for toilet training, the first step is to decide whether you want to train using a potty or the toilet.
How to Potty Train Boys to Pee Standing Up (Without the Mess)
Your most-asked potty training questions
I think my three-year-old son is ready to be potty trained. How do I teach him to stand up at the toilet when he needs to pee? Do boys have to pee sitting down? I guess I understand how a boy standing up at the toilet is supposed to work, but the very few times that we've tried, he's had a few mishaps and messes and I feel like I must be doing something wrong. First off, congrats to your son!
Flush with success: solving toilet-training problems
Q: My three-year-old son pees in the potty, but not just once: He goes several times in small amounts. I am using training diapers to deal with this. I ask him every five minutes if he needs to go, but he says no and seems to be annoyed with my asking over and over again. This will help him feel the difference between a full and an empty bladder, and discourage his multiple trips. Q: With our second baby due soon, should we continue trying to potty train our three-year-old daughter?
Potty training your toddler will obviously be a daunting task. When you begin to potty train your boy, you will start worrying about training him to pee standing up. However, the best way to go about it is to let him associate the idea of peeing and pooping in the same way first- that is sitting down. When your boy masters the act of sitting down and peeing and pooping, you could train him for peeing standing up.
