As a parent, one of the most exciting milestones in your baby’s life is potty training. However, it can be a daunting task to determine when your baby needs to go potty, especially if they can’t communicate with words yet. In this blog, we’ll explore some clues that your baby needs to potty, so you can help them learn this important skill.
Squirming or Fidgeting
Babies often squirm or fidget when they need to go potty. They may move around a lot, wriggle in their seats, or even arch their backs. If you notice your baby doing any of these things, it may be a sign that they need to go.
Crying or Whining
Crying or whining is another clue that your baby needs to potty. Some babies cry or whine when they feel uncomfortable or have a wet or dirty diaper. If your baby seems irritable or fussy, it may be time for a diaper change or a potty break.
Babies often make facial expressions when they need to potty. Some may grimace or scrunch up their face, while others may look startled or surprised. If you notice any of these facial expressions, it may be a sign that your baby needs to go.
Grunting or Straining
When babies are trying to poop, they may grunt or strain. If your baby seems to be working hard to go, it’s a good indication that they need to use the potty. Encourage your baby to sit on the potty or offer them a diaper change to help ease their discomfort.
Increased Urination or Bowel Movements
If your baby is going through more diapers than usual, it may be a sign that they need to use the potty. Babies who are ready to potty train may have increased urination or bowel movements, which means more diaper changes.
