Ok, back on track..Sedar2 Haziq bagitau "Ma, iyak"..Ingatkan Haziq membuang dalam pampersnya tapi rupa2nya tidak..Arghhh!! sungguhlah tension bila ketulan emas selonggok kat depan TV..kalau boleh dijual takpe!! satu hal pula nak kena basuh semua..hai..pagi2 lagi dah spoilkan mood mama!!
Actually dah lama dah hubby nak potty training si Haziq ni..Haritu masa bulan puasa, hubby beria suh training Haziq agar dia bagitau bila nak "iyak" so that kami (read:papa & mama) boleh cepat2 bawa masuk ke dalam toilet..rupa2nya bila Haziq sudah selesai membuang baru dia cakap "iyak", haaaaaaa amik kooo..fresh from the oven lagi!! dahler masa tu dah azan Maghrib..terpaksalah settle yang tu dulu pasal nak makan pon tak lalu weh!!
Bukannyer senang nak latih anak kita untuk beritahu bila dia akan membuang..sebab dia pon masih senang untuk melepaskan di dalam pampers kan..tapi Zaila hairan juga bila anak2 cousin Zaila yang dah masuk 2 tahun terus je tak pakai pampers, macamanalah cousin Zaila ajar ya??
Owh by the way, cousin Zaila ni tak kerja so no wonderlah dia boleh latih anak2 dia untuk memberitahu apabila nak membuang~~ayat sedapkan hati~~
Maklumlah bagi Zaila yang bekerja ni, masa untuk bersama anak2 adalah sangat terhad so jarang sangatlah kami bersemuka berbicara tentang hal ini (macamlah Haziq tu faham!!)..Tambahan pula hantar Haziq ke nursery, lagilah susah untuk meminta mereka (read:pengasuh) mengajar Haziq supaya bersuara bila hendak membuang air besar ataupon kecil, kalau ada orang gaji mungkin lain kisahnya!!
Oh, kat sini ada sedikit artikel yang Zaila ambil dari internet;-
Many parents are unsure about when to start toilet teaching or "potty training." Not all kids are ready at the same age, so it's important to watch your child for signs of readiness, such as stopping an activity for a few seconds or clutching his or her diaper.
Most children begin to show these signs between 18 and 24 months, although some may be ready earlier or later than that. And boys often start later and take longer to learn to use the potty than girls.
Instead of using age as a readiness indicator, look for other signs that your child may be ready to start heading for the potty, such as the ability to:
- follow simple instructions
- understand words about the toileting process
- control the muscles responsible for elimination
- express a need to go verbally
- keep a diaper dry for 2 hours or more
- get to the potty, sit on it, and then get off the potty
- pull down diapers, disposable training pants, or underpants
- show an interest in using the potty or wearing underpants
There are some stressful or difficult times when you may want to put off starting the toilet-teaching process — when traveling, around the birth of a sibling, changing from the crib to the bed, moving to a new house, or when your child is sick (especially if diarrhea is a factor). It may be better to postpone it until your child's environment is stable and secure.
Also, some experts may recommend starting the process during summer because kids wear less clothing, but it is not a good idea to wait if your child is ready.Kalau nak tahu dengan lebih lanjut lagi, bolehlah sambung baca di sini.
Zaila ada bertanyakan kawan Zaila tentang hal ini & dia cadangkan supaya Zaila membeli potty chair to encourage Haziq to start using the toilet correctly..There are many choices of potty chairs that we can choose depending on our child's age & body size..Here, u can pick any design that u like!!
Below are some steps that we can take to start potty train our childs;-
- Don't be too eager to get your little one out of diapers/nappies. While it can be convenient to have a potty-trained child, sometimes it's not so convenient for the child (or the adult).
- Wait until you are both ready. To potty train, you need a LOT of time, patience and energy! Some people begin as early as 3 months, others feel this is stressful for the child and allow more time. A generally favored approach begins sometime after the first year or at about 18 months.
- Choose a specific time or times of the day when you place your beloved on or in front of the potty. These can be: after waking up; before a nap; after lunch; before going to sleep. It can be once a day or more than that, but try to keep it consistent. A good choice for the time of day is one that will work well with the schedule of the child's main caregivers. If you are potty-training an infant, be sure to support the baby for safety.
- Realize that the first day or two can be frustrating. But once your baby does it and you show signs of approval and excitement, baby will want to do it over and over to make you happy.
- Have the child sit on the potty whenever you do. Don't worry whether they go or not. If they do go to the bathroom, congratulate them. If they don't go, point out what a good try it was and how exciting it is that they were sitting on the potty just like mama and daddy. Keep it calm and matter of fact.
- Try not to get upset or show disappointment if it doesn't happen right away. Each child will learn in his or her own time and place. There is no rush to potty train. Once your child is a big boy or girl, he or she won't be a baby ever again. Enjoy having the baby for a year or two... or three.
- Begin leaving the child's diaper off for a few hours each day when you are home so they can learn to relate the internal feelings of needing to go with the outcome.
- When your child is doing well at home, buy some underpants or all-cloth training pants. Talk about the underpants a lot, let the child look at them and feel how soft they are. Tell them "Mommy and Daddy wear underpants and keep them dry. Mommy and Daddy go in the toilet every time."
- Try a quick errand or walk around the block (15 minutes-30 minutes tops) in the underwear and as soon as you get home, take them off. If it goes well be excited, if your child went to the bathroom in the underwear, change them and try again later. Do not punish or act upset.
- Congratulate your child whenever he tells you about the urge to go. Say "thank you," "that's great!," or some other form of encouragement that you feel comfortable using.
- When you are out, take your child to public toilets and let them try them it out. Keep it light and don't pressure them to go if they aren't ready.
- When they are dry or fairly dry most days, your child may be ready for nap and night-training. If so, buy bed pads(at least 3 so you can change them easily) and get the kind that are soft feeling and have a plastic layer inside and put it on top of the bottom sheet. Put a potty next to the bed or crib. As soon as the child wakes up and calls for you, put him or her on the potty. If they go in the bed, change the pad and don't make a big deal of it.
- Once you embark on the toilet training path, you have to keep it going. This is the hard part for most parents. It is tempting to put them in diapers for a road-trip or for a concert or at the babysitter's house, but it will confuse them and cause problems. Once they have been in underwear exclusively for a week pack up their changing area and store it or get rid of it. Dress them on the floor or on the bed, not on their back on the changing table. You also need to help them learn to ask themselves if they need to go to the bathroom -not just ask or try all the time. It has to become their responsibility gradually.
- Once they are going on their own, you can help them learn all of the steps of bathroom self sufficiency. The steps are;
- Knowing you have to go
- Going to the bathroom or asking an adult to go to the bathroom
- Closing the door
- Pulling down pants and underpants, or pulling off pants and underpants, or push up skirt and pull down underpants, or pull down tights and push up skirt and pull down underpants.
- Sitting down on potty or climbing up onto toilet(May involve a sub-step of pushing a stool over to climb up)
- Going to the bathroom
- Wiping(This can be a hard one for a long time if you want true cleanliness, a wet-wipe can be easier than toilet paper)
- Getting up and pulling up pants/tights and underpants, pull down skirt etc.
- Flushing the toilet
- Turning on water and washing hands with soap
- Turning off the water and drying their hands. It's a lot to learn, so expect that you will be in the bathroom a lot. The more they see you do it the easier it will be to remember.
Harap2 info ini dapat membantu para ibu yang sedang melatih anak mereka untuk menggunakan toilet..Insya Allah, Zaila akan cuba untuk latih Haziq dengan menggunakan Potty Chair tu (pasni harus p cari benda alah tu) tapi Zaila tak nak paksa2 so biarlah dia faham dengan sendirinya & harap2 secepat yang mungkin!!!
Bagi ibu2 yang anaknya sudah besar, care to share your experience tak on how to potty train our childs???
