5 Potty Training Signs of Readiness

by Bethany Baird • January 22nd, 2021

When toddlers are developmentally becoming more independent and communicative , they will start to show signs of readiness for potty training. By following their lead, you’ll know when the best and easiest time is to start potty training! 5 classic signs your child is ready to start using the potty are:

  1. They show interest in the toilet.
  2. Begin telling you when they need to be changed, and are uncomfortable in wet or dirty diapers.
  3. Their bowel movements are consistently at the same time.
  4. They can undress themselves, or get undressed with minimal help.
  5. They stay dry for 2 hours at a time.

You’ll know they aren’t ready to start potty training if your child isn’t showing these signs and remember – it isn’t a race!
