Subject:  Potty Train once a child can sit
I disagree that in India potty training is done by force. I raised 2 beautiful children in Mumbai and started potty-training them at the age of around 5-6 months (both were able to sit well) and did it with fun - reading to them most of the time and they were trained and well controlled within a month. I believe the most important milestone for potty training is sitting and once the child sits comfortably is time to potty train. Its up to the parent to be patient and willing to get ' going' !

Even if some parents may use pressure - its not the norm and I find the statement by Pranay that Indians use force objectionable!

Hi LynnS

thanks for your subtle point of view.

I wanted to start my daughter (sh´ s 3 monts and she wears washable nappy ) around like your children 5/6 months ...
Where do you place the potty in living area or only bathroom ? Do you sit them more than one time ? Everytime your feed them ?How long did it take for them to do it by themselve?

Our children are more intelligent than we treat them i firmely beleive that!

Thanks for your advise and well done for your kids !!!

Potty training is not easy. Here we have to do it on our own with no help. My sister-in-law in the US had it much easier. She says they get a lot of things to help. She trained her daughter using something called a Potty Monkey. It is a scientific way of training the child.

In India, we potty train by force. Just because the parents do not want the headache of washing the diapers, we want our children to be trained soon. Then we go about and proclaim to the world how advanced our kids are. Nobody says we are doing it by force.

There is no right age to potty train a child. Every child is individual and develops at his own rate. On the other hand, the more you do not train a child, greater will be the headaches when you try to train him later on. I would say that you can start at 18 months and see from there.

RE:constipation
When the baby is in discomfort from constipation (especially if she hasn't done some dirty for two days or more), the first thing you should give is a glycerin suppository.... - Su 03 [View Message]
RE:hi
Most doctors say banana doesn't help - the potassium in it makes constipation worse. Remember you can make your own prune puree in a blender. Grape, grapefruit and papaya are also laxative fruits. And remember you can safely use baby suppositories as often as you need to (they also help with "training" the baby to do a dirty at the same time every day)... - Su 03 [View Message]

Hi there please be calm and relax as it happens sometime the child takes little time to start walking or crawling also but in your case the child should have started crawling if not walking.... - Anita [View Message]

RE:Baby Movements/Development
