Potty

My daughter is 16 months old and we want to start introducing her to the potty. Not really get her trying yet, just so it is not such a scary thing for her (she does not like much change). What are some good potty training books for little girls?

  • The Potty Book I think it's called it has a little flusher sound in it and the kid flushes it throughout. Its a board book and comes in girl and boy varieties.

  • You can find oodles of baby board books about learning to use the potty at the library.  One that I actually bought for my son is Once Upon A Potty.  They make it in a boy version and a girl version.  There is a video, also.

  • try keeping her potty chair around let her play around and sit on it if she wants just so she gets used to it. :)

  • I never used books or charts. Just kid books that had pics of other kids on their potties. I became familiar with the times of day DD usually had to potty or the sounds and signs she gave when she had to. Then I just got DD hyped up about using it at those times and PRAISE PRAISE PRAISE. She was out of diapers by 21 months. She now uses a stick to turn on the bathroom light, puts her stool next to the toilet, and sets her soft seat on it. Make it interesting and make her feel proud :)
