Toddler Won’t Tell When Needs To Potty! Is this a recurring theme in your household?

Some parents can get frustrated and wound up when their toddler won’t tell them they need to go potty.

It can be a difficult time to successfully potty train your child and having communication issues makes the challenge much harder.

On average most toddlers will go for a wee or poo up to 7 times a day and they don’t always give a warning on when they need to go.

This is certainly the case when they are first starting out but can still happen to a more veteran potty trainee.

First of this is normal behaviour, so don’t feel like you are isolation.

Many parents suffer from the “Toddler Won’t Tell When Needs To Potty” problem.

As your toddler begins to understand the body changes surrounding potty time they will begin to become more expressive about what and when they need to go.

The potty training process usually occurs in 3 stages.

Within these stages, you can fine-tune your technique to better understand your little one and figure out why they are so reluctant to tell you that they need to do a wee or poo.

Toddler Won’t Tell When Needs To Potty – 3 Stage Workaround

Stage 1: Knowing they have done a wee

First off your toddler needs to know that they have done a wee.

This sensation will help them in stage 2.

Most newer diapers lock away the wee so well that most toddlers don’t even release that they have a wet nappy.

This isn’t good for potty training so you need to try to make your toddler more aware that they have indeed done a wee and to understand what has happened.

Stage 2: Recognising your body’s signs

Next, your toddler will need to recognise the body’s clues that they need to go before they actually do.

This is extremely difficult to explain to a young child and almost more impossible to demonstrate.

Instead, explain to them they have to listen to their body and distinguish when they have a full bladder.

Usually, the bladder will have to be filled or close to full before your toddler will even begin to sense they need to go wee.

Stage 3: Timing & Getting To The Toilet.

Lastly, they need to be able to distinguish stages 1 and 2 and then put them together to get to the toilet on time before they have an accident.

It is so natural to older people but this all takes time to master.

The tricky part is to pick up the body signals before it’s too late.

Sometimes children who have learnt how to manage their body’s clues try to hold their pee or poo for too long and this can result in bigger accidents or very abrupt ones.

As you can imagine all of this takes time and patience as your toddler learns what each stage is and then how to correctly master it.

Learning correct potty training solutions does take a long time to implement.

The “Potty Training Not Asking To Go” solution is to try and better understand your toddler.

Once you figure out the reason behind their potty training problems you can very easily help to provide some structure to fix them.

Potty Training Not Asking To Go – 5 Quick Tips

Tip 1 – Accept accidents

Tip 2 – Remind them to listen to their bodies as much as possible

Tip 3 – Look out for tell-tell signs they need to go like, crouching, squatting or dancing around on a full bladder.

Tip 4 – Don’t constantly ask them if they need a wee or poo

Tip 5 – Try to use video’s or other older children to help explain what to do. Toddlers mimic older children remarkably well.
