Perhaps now is a good time to start Potty Training for your toddler, if you're spending more time at home due to the coronavirus situation.
The end result or benefit for you, is that once your child is toilet trained, there will be no need to wear diapers anymore.
This means directly saving money & effort, regardless if you're using disposable or cloth diapers.
If so good, then why aren't more parents doing it?
That's because here in Singapore we don't have such culture. In Western countries, it's perfectly normal to toilet train children at an early age, usually from 18 months onwards.
Without this culture, that's why in Singapore, our children are still running around in their disposable diapers at 3 to 5 years old.
Because adults are not actively inculcating the concept of toilet training, our children are more than happy to keep peeing into a dry diaper. (that solves their problem) Plus someone will help them change when diaper gets wet. (That's why they have zero incentive to learn toilet training on their own volition)
Now imagine if you had toilet trained them at around 2 years old, you would have saved, potentially, at least 1 to 3 years worth of diaper money and effort.
How Does It Work?
It starts with a Potty Training Pants. You switch this for their current diaper. Then get a potty for them to sit on.
Any decent potty training pants, will do 2 things for you.
1) It will make them feel wet, when they pee.
2) It's a pull-up / pull-down pants.
We start by encouraging them to use the potty to let go. If they pee onto the training pants, they'll feel wet and uncomfortable. That's when we'll provide a solution and teach them to walk towards the potty and learn to pull down their pants.
The process shouldn't take more than 2 weeks . You just need to spend more time with them to teach and encourage them.
When in doubt, just go to Youtube to learn how to toilet train your child.
