With Summer heating things up across the Northern Hemisphere you might be thinking more about where you’re going to keep cool than potty training your toddler. The truth is that there is not a better time to start than now.
Here are a few reasons why:
- It is the perfect temperature in the Summer to let your toddler run around in only a t-shirt and a cloth training pant (if not just cloth training pants). The less clothes they have on, the faster they will be able undress to use the potty.
- Accidents are not as big a problem now since you will be spending more time outdoors together. There will be some accidents when getting started and being outside makes them easier to deal with.
- If an accident does make it to the carpet, upholstery, or other fabrics the heat will help it dry faster after the cleanup. If you can put soiled fabrics in the sun, it will help remove any stains in a natural way.
These are just a few of the advantages when potty training your toddler in the hot summer months. We would encourage you to take advantage of this perfect opportunity and say goodbye to those diapers this summer.
