Steps to success:
Introduce the Toilet
Even if your child is partially familiar with the toilet, it’s always a good idea to introduce him to it officially: That way his ideas about it come from you, not somewhere else. The more the child knows about the toilet and bathroom, the more comfortable he will be when training starts. For instance, “Little Bob, this is called the toilet or the potty. When you’re a big boy, you sit on this to pee or poop instead of using a diaper. When you’re all done, you flush the toilet, like this. It’s not a toy, so we don’t play with it.”
Always Be Pottying
And now you wait. Your child shouldn’t leave your eyesight ever. Wherever she goes, you go, reminding her every step of the way that she needs to tell you when she needs to go potty. In my opinion, this is the most stressful part of potty training: You have explained everything to your child and she hasn’t had an accident yet, so you have no idea how she will respond and react. Usually, kids are surprised when pee starts running down their legs, especially if they have never worn underwear before—but you never know until it happens the first time.
An Empty Bladder
To set your child up for overnight success, it’s important that she goes to the bathroom before going to sleep, whatever time of day that is. If your child goes to sleep with a full bladder, she’ll wet the bed. She just can’t help it.
A little trick I do at night is have kids go to the bathroom 30 minutes before bedtime, and then one more time as the very last thing they do before hopping into bed. That way, they have had two chances to empty their bladders, which are now, most likely, completely empty…
