My son is turning 4 this May. This is his 2nd year going to school and I still let him wear diapers. Pero pag sa school lang naman. I know sya nalang nagdidiaper sa school pero ok lang sakin. He is potty trained though. He can say poopoo and wiwi and he can go to the toilet by himself, he calls me lang pag clean up na. I still let him wear diaper sa school kasi Im worried lang na baka magkaaccident sya dun and mapahiya sya.
I tried one time, we went to church and I did not let him wear a diaper, siguro he got confused kasi naka brief sya and naka pants pa kaya he had an accident. He got worried too much, wipe daw niya yung wiwi niya kasi magagalit daw yung pastor. So sabi ko baka may negative effect pa yung naging worried sya masyado or baka napahiya sya, kaya I did not insist anymore. He wears diaper when he is in school and during bedtime.
I'll wait when he is really ready.

Hi, I'm new here at smart parenting and i have a problem with my 4 years old son who's still on diaper all day as in 24/7, and his already at pre-school... kahit sabihin namin na sya nalang ang nagddiaper sa school ayaw pa rin niya tanggalin. Should i wait nalang pag-ready niya sya?

I wonder why he doesn't want to remove it.. because if we know the reason behind it, it can help us solve the problem.

Pakiramdam ko ang "walang kwentang" mommy ko dahil hindi pa na popotty train ang baby girl ko. She's already 3 years old, and next year plan ko na siyang ipasok sa school. I really need to have her trained na wala nang diaper. Ang messy. Wiwi and pupu siya anywhere abutan tapos continue lang siya sa activities niya. Alam niya ang pupu and wiwi pati ang toilet bowl. I tried letting her sit down on the toilet bowl for 10 seconds. 7 seconds palang umaayaw na. We always end up with tears. I'm afraid Im causing trauma to my kid also. Nakikita ng ibang expert mommies ang situation namin nasaasbihan ako lagi na anong klaseng mommy ako di ko matrain anak ko. Hayyyy.... Inggit ako sa inyo!

I started to stop using diapers when my son was 2. Ofcourse, there are still instances of bedwetting (especially at night), peeing and pooing accidents but I think it is all part of the learning experience.

As a parent, I agree that we have to be firm and know when it is the appropriate time to transition.

What helped me was:

Avoiding giving him milk before bedtime
Making him pee before sleeping
Having a lot of underwear to change after every accident
Encouraging him and showing him how and where to go

Others give other reinforcements like:
Reward system (like stickers or a treat)
Having a baby potty trainer or seat cushion for toddler


In due time, all will pay off. After all, it is a nice feeling seeing our kids grow and becoming more independent in their different stages.

Hello mga mommies!  8)

I am a single dad who raised my son all by myself since he was 2. My son is about to turn 5 now. Just to share a little about me. I am a neuro and my wife died 3 years ago. I raised my son alone, without any help coming from my parents(they will not even help me) hehe. He has a stay-in yaya. But I was the one who trained my son since he was a very makulit boy who will not just follow his yaya.
Going back to the toilet training thing, some experts may recommend starting the process during summer because kids wear less clothing( I am referring to those who go to school), but it is not a good idea to wait if your child is ready.

If you've decided that your child is ready to start learning how to use the potty, these tips may help:

    Set aside some time to devote to the potty-training process.

    Don't make your child sit on the toilet against his or her will.

Timing Is Everything

When your child seems to feel comfortable sitting on the potty, try asking him to sit without a diaper. Some important times to remember to make a "potty stop" are

    At the times your child usually has a bowel movement (BM)
    Right after a nap
    An hour after a drink or meal

The Waiting Game

For a few days, not much will happen. Try asking your child to sit on the potty three or four times a day. Just two or three minutes is long enough. Stay and keep your child company. Use this time to talk about nice things, like a visit to Grandpa's house or pictures in a storybook. Many children learn to have BMs in the potty before they learn to wet. It's easier for children (and parents) to tell when this is going to happen. There's also usually more time to get to the potty. One day, your child will "go" on the potty. When it happens, be ready to be excited and give a big hug.

Clean-up

You will need to help your child learn to wipe from front to back after going potty. (Children's arms aren't long enough to do a good job.) Be sure to teach your child to wash hands with soap and water. Germs can make your child sick. Never give food as a reward in the bathroom.

Don't Fight About It

If your child doesn't want to sit on the potty chair, just skip it. It can be difficult to have all the patience you need, so if your child puts up a big fuss, take a break. You may need to wait a few days or even a few weeks before you try again.

Rewards and Punishments

Many parents wonder if they should reward or punish children during toilet teaching. Praise, hugs, and encouragement are important ways to help your child learn. If your child is uncooperative, don't shame or punish.

Don't make fun of your child for having accidents.

All children have accidents and stubborn moods. When your child has an accident, say something like, "I'm sorry you had this accident. I know you're trying hard. Next time I bet you will get to the potty on time."

People have different opinions about rewards like stickers or toys. The aren't usually necessary. Remember, children want to be grown-up and to feel successful. They will usually work very hard for your approval.
Naptime and Nighttime

Your child will be able to use the toilet in the daytime before staying dry during a nap or overnight. It could even be a year or more before your child stays dry most nights. You must decide whether to keep using diapers at night or to change the sheets when your child has an accident while sleeping.

When and Where to Get help

If you are having a lot of problems with toilet teaching, you may want to talk with someone who can help. If your child is 4-1/2 or 5 years old and still hasn't been successful, talk to your doctor. Your child may have a physical problem that is making toilet teaching difficult. But remember, many children are 3 or 4 years old before they can wait long enough to get to the toilet without having an accident.

Same here pero nako-control namin. He only uses a diaper kapag matutulog sa gabi. Minsan siya pa ang nagsasabing ayaw na daw niya mag-diaper. He tells us kapag magsi-CR siya, bukas lang ang pinto tapos may nakabantay na matanda para walang accidents. His three year old sister's also being toilet trained na.  :)

My son just turned 4. He's already in pre-school, nursery. Toilet trained na sya pero during daytime pa lang. He can go to the toilet na all by himself whenever he needs to. Pero pag matutulog sa gabi he still wears diaper. One time paggising niya. dry yung diaper so I told him na pag-dry ulit kinabukasan hindi na sya mag-diaper at night. Kaso pagdating ng kinabukasan super wet naman kaya until now naka-diaper pa rin sya at night. Pero I told him na sa school holiday niya this coming May, i-train ko na sya ng no diaper at night.

I started toilet training my daughter last year, around November or December, and I can now say na she's 100% potty-trained na. :) Pag nawiwiwi or poopopp sya, whether nasa bahay kami or sa labas, nagsasabi na sya. Pati pag gabi, pag nakakaramdam sya ng wiwi or popo urge, nagigising sya talaga and she'd wake me up to help her to the restroom (madilim kasi. hehe).

It was a tedious process talaga sa umpisa. Kung saan-saan sya napapawiwi at popo dito sa bahay nung nagsisimula pa lang kami. Pero in a couple of months, naging habit na niya magsabi, or tumakbo sa potty seat niya pag nawiwi na sya. The night-time potty is another thing. Early this year lang kami naging successful sa pagtanggal ng diaper sa gabi.  We had two nighttime 'accidents' nung naguumpisa, pero after that no more na. I don't know how she learned to wake herself up at night to wiwi or popo, kasi we didn't do naman any special 'training' for night. We just tell her na if she needs to go the CR to tell me or her yaya or her daddy. And charan, nagulat na lang kami, she was doing it na.

Before she started summer school this year (she was 2 years and 10 months old), she was already potty-trained both day and nighttime. :)

I think potty training is mainly about two very important things: the child's readiness, and the parent's (or the guardian's) determination to succeed in potty training. Pag parehong meron, for sure, magiging successful. Very important factor to determine when to start potty training is pag nakakapagcommunicate na mabuti ang bata, in the sense na you can actually engage the child in a conversation na pareho kayong nagkakaintindihan ng message na gusto niya i-get across. Usually yan at the age of 2 up.  Observe nyo mabuti how your kid takes instructions, yung habits niya, and what usually catches his/her attention to listen and follow.

With my kid, I used the chart-rewards system, and it worked! One month (or a bit more than a month) ko sya ginawa, and it really paid off.  :)

May classmate yung kid ko sa summer school, she's turning 4 na this year, and not yet potty-trained. I think they were in a way 'forced' to start, kasi nagka-UTI yung bata, and suggestion ng doctor not to let the kid wear diapers na kasi that's most likely daw what caused the UTI. The kid already had a number of 'accidents' in class, and while it's perfectly natural naman, naawa lang ako dun sa feeling ng bata, na malamang she got embarrassed. Wag lang po natin biglain ang potty training, make it gradual. Like sa bahay muna walang diaper, pag lalabas saka na lang magdiaper. Saka na lang mag-attempt na wala if outside, pag naging successful na sa potty training while inside the house. :) May sarili din pong pace ang mga bata na matutunan ang mga bagay na katulad nito, so let's not get frustrated if they don't catch on agad, they will naman in their own perfect time. :)

If there's one thing I learned it's that potty training goes better when the child is ready. So don't put unnecessary stress on you or your daughter because she hasn't been trained. In due time, she will. And you should NEVER say you're  walang kwenta :D

I agree with you Anne. Don't push your child like me, nipressure ko ang sarili ko ng bongga based on what I have read na as early as 6 months or younger pwede na itrain ang baby to poop. So ako naman nangarag, oh my 14 months na anak ko I should potty train him na. I bought a potty chair and tried it on him but to my dismay he won'r even want to sit so I feel frustrated over that. I forgot that not all children are not the same. Ang potty chair tinago ko na and when the new yaya saw it she told be ipapatry niya sa anak ko. Sabi ko oki, kasi un old yaya niya walang initiative e kaya siguro ganun nun una or talagang hindi pa sya ready. After 2 weeks potty trained na anak ko, ganun lang pala un. Just wait and timing lang.

Simple tricks that helped us transition our daughter from nappies to toilet:
1. Bought a potty trainer (Chicco) which is simple and very easy to clean.
2. Observed time intervals between weewee and poop. Like sa weewee, normally, takes an hour or less depending on liquid intake. At the start, we followed the time interval para paupuin sya sa potty trainer. Later on, nasanay na sya. We used this until she was 2.5yrs old.
3. After this, we bought toilet seat already. That's about it.

And lots of patience lang talaga mga mommies. :)

Sis, at 2 dapat nag start ka na i train siya. Mahirap talaga at first. Sa anak ko, pagod na pagod din kami ng yaya niya sa kakapunas ng sahig kapag hindi success. Pero nung nasanay naman siya na wala nang diaper sa umaga e ok na. Tapos, after a year, siya narin nagsabi na ayaw na niya mag diaper sa gabi.

Try mo muna na huwag siya i diaper kapag nasa bahay siya. Shirt and panty nalang muna yung pasuot mo sa kanya. Since she's already 4 years old, maiintindihan na niya yun, kapag sinabi mo na sabihan ka when she needs to pee. =)
