Baby Signs Potty Training
The program suggests that it is easier to potty train a baby under the age of 2 because as children get older, they want to make more and more decisions on their own.
This natural progression towards independence while healthy can also set the stage for a battle of wills when it comes to potty training.
They also suggest that babies will potty train at the age parents expect them to train.
Historical and cross-cultural practices clearly demonstrate that babies can train as early as 5 months.
Potty Training a baby that young is indeed possible, but very time-intensive.
Because of the time commitment required, this approach is not practical for most parents.
The Baby Signs® Potty Training Program, however, provides a compelling alternative to very late or very early potty training. By helping babies learn simple potty-time signs, the Baby Signs® Potty Training Program makes it easy for parents to both begin and end the whole enterprise before age 2.
The benefits of this program are:
1. It is Easier For YouThe Baby Signs® Potty Training Program makes potty training easier because it gives your baby a way to communicate even before she can talk. It gives her a way to tell you when she has to go potty!
2. Fun for Your ChildThe Baby Signs ® Potty Training Kit comes with a full set of fun and motivational products your child will love - all designed to inspire him to "get on board the Potty Train."
An illustrated board book, full-length DVD, conductor's whistle and rewards stickers all work together to make potty time both fun and successful.
3. It is Good for Your Child's DevelopmentThe Baby Signs® Potty Training Program not only gives your baby freedom from diapers, it gives your baby the benefits of signing as well.
Over two decades of scientific research, much of it funded by the National Institutes of Health, has shown that the Baby Signs® Program:
- reduces frustration and aggressive behaviors.
- builds trust between babies and their parents.
- promotes positive emotional development.
- boosts babies' self-confidence and builds self-esteem.
- helps babies learn to talk.
- Boosts babies intellectual development.
4. It is Good for the EnvironmentEver since the introduction of disposable diapers in the early 1960s, the average age for potty training keeps climbing higher and higher.
Today, the average age at which American children complete potty training is higher than at any time in history: 36 months for girls and 38 months for boys.
Potty training your baby by the age of 2 means that you will prevent between 1500 and 3000 diapers from entering landfills. You can help the environment and save money, too!
