The signs of enjoyment indicate a milestone in the life of the baby and the family! After all, leaving nappies behind results in a new phase of adaptation in the routine of the child and parents.
Experts point out that the little ones tend to be ready for daytime enjoyment from one and a half years of age, and many of them will only be safe after three. Everyone has their time! Not to get attached to age and to be attentive to behavioral and physiological signs is the most important thing.
What are the signs of enjoyment?
We’ve prepared a little list with some signs of enjoyment that show that your love is ready to wear your first panties or panties. Take a look:
- Don’t wet the diaper for 2 or 3 hours;
- Ask her to change her diaper after she pees or poops. He bothers with the wet or the weight of the full diaper;
- Ask to use the throne;
- He usually poops at the same time;
- Shows interest in wearing panties;
- Follow simple instructions like “take the pacifier” or “return the book”;
- He can tell you he’s in the mood to go to the bathroom;
- You can pull your pants down and up by yourself;
- You keep trying to take your diaper off;
- Start following the parents in the bathroom.
What should parents do?
As soon as the enjoyment begins, parents need to be patient and be aware that there may be some “escapades” of pee or poop at meal time or on some walk, for example.
So always take an extra change of clothes! Also, it is very important that the parents or caregivers do not scold and even less punish the child for the leaks, because he is not always in control. The same goes for peeing in bed!
When starting the enjoyment, the parents can opt for both the potty/troninhos and the toilet reducers so that the child is more comfortable and calm to make their needs.
Mattress covers are great allies in this process. The nocturnal enjoyment may take a little longer to happen, because while some children enjoy day and night almost simultaneously, the vast majority take longer to leave their diapers at bedtime. So get ready for it:
- Clean pee without scolding;
- Always encourage and congratulate the baby;
- Value small achievements like holding the pee until it reaches a bathroom;
- Remind him to go to the bathroom from time to time;
- Do not put pressure on the baby to do the needs quickly.
Remember that this is a natural process and every child has a time! When she is really prepared, enjoyment occurs quickly and without trauma.
