How to know when to remove the baby’s diaper?On July 26, 2019 by LillaMayath
Normally the control of urination is carried out around three years, and that of defecation at approximately two and a half years. However, it often happens that parents themselves are in a hurry because their baby leaves the diaper.
But are you ready to really quit? It is important to ensure that it is useless and, in addition, could be detrimental to its development. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that you are ready to leave the diaper. There are some physical, behavioral and other cognitive signals that indicate whether the baby is really prepared or not for it.
- You have enough balance and coordination to walk
- Urinate quite once
- Run stably
- Your bowel movements are frequent: soft and well-formed
- It stays dry for three to four hours
- It goes up and down the pants alone
- Show your “great independence”
- It doesn’t say everything “no”
- It bothers him to have a dirty diaper
- Try to imitate adults when they go to the bathroom
- Obey simple instructions
- Understand the importance of keeping things in the right place
- He knows when he has to go to the bathroom
- Has words for bowel movements and urine
Leaving the diaper is a milestone in the baby’s life. In fact, it is really a great step towards independence. However, no child leaves him or should leave him if he is not really prepared for it.
Neurologically what happens is that children are usually prepared to leave the diaper between two and three years. By two years they will control the poop, between two and a half years and the three will control the daytime pee, and it will take longer for the night pee.
Tips for removing the baby’s diaper
As a general rule, the ideal time to remove the baby’s diaper is vacations, since dads and moms have all the time in the world to dedicate themselves exclusively to their baby. Remember that, without a doubt, the most important thing is the availability and calm of the parents.
Essential steps for the child’s autonomy and that’s it!
- Begin the process only when the child is fully prepared.
- Choose the moment well and never match it with another important process.
- Explain that you are going to remove the diaper and tell him why.
- Put on some diapers that he can lower and climb alone.
- Let your little one accompany you to the bathroom.
- Follow schedules and routines.
- When you remove the diaper, better during the day (at least at the beginning).
- Never scold him for not wanting to pee or not wanting to go to the potty to do so.
- If you notice that the process is not working, you better go back to the diaper process and give it time.
- If it is at night remember not to be in a hurry when sleeping.
And always remember that each child evolves and develops in a different way, and that yes, tranquility above all, because nobody knows their children as much as their parents, nor does anyone know better than them when is the best time for it or how to treat to the little one so that he accepts it willingly.
Because the time to leave the diaper is not a day as such, but rather a stage of life, a period or sensitive process that when parents arrive they must be able to launch the other missing part: learning.
