Toilet training

November 17, 2008

I started toilet training my little boy shortly before he turned two years old. Since I am a SAHM, it was easier to devote time and attention to his call; “Mommy; klo! (toilet)” Little boy is a little late in this department, but hopefully he’d graduate from wearing diapers soon.

Just a few days in training, he was eager to go by himself. I would constantly remind him to “go to the toilet,” or “you should pee in the toilet, don’t wet your pants.”

Then he started attending daycare, his training was put to a halt. However, I did continue training him at home, we changed him to training pants already, and let him watch toilet training videos…like the one below.

It really is important for you to devote time with your kid when toilet training. Some things we could do to make it easier to toilet train a child, show them how one uses the bathroom. Wash hands together, let them flush the toilet. If you have a potty trainer, let them sit on it regularly even with clothes on, so they can be familiar with it. It may take at most 3 months before a child could be trained, so patience is the key for a successful potty training.


  1. Aww…hahaa, he’s so cute! Hala lagot ka sa kanya pag nakita niya iyan kapag binata na siya lol!I agree Giz, kailangan talaga time.Yung eldest ko kahit sa madaling araw bumabangon para mag pee. Not normal sa isang 1 year and 8 mos old.

  2. Nona, galing naman ng baby boy mo, maaga sha natuto, bravo!

    Toni, I dont know why, I just love taking his photo anywhere, whatever way he looks lol.

  3. ay naku, ang cute naman at madali niyang natutunan. agree ako na pwdeng commercial ng toilet training or tissue paper hehehe!

  4. G, i’m actually having a problem potty training Mia. seems like she doesn’t have a problem if her underpants are wet or soiled because she rarely complains. i was told kasi that if she was, it could be a sign she was ready for the potty already.

    Hirap din kasi I work so I can’t focus on potty training her. maybe in time, darating din kami dun. 🙂 cute little boy by the way 🙂
