Potty Training Needs TLC (Tender Loving Care)

Tags: ,

A parent, who has no diaper punishment story to tell, is a good parent, indeed. It likewise indicates that he or she is not a controlling parent, but one who realizes that although some situations call for discipline, diaper punishment is not one way to go about it.

Sometimes though, a diaper punishment story may be pure fabrication, a fairy tale perpetrated by a kid to get back at his parents. Whether the story is a work of fiction, or true in fact, it is an unacceptable method of punishing a toddler who relapses into bed wetting, or is a slow poke with potty training.

Although a child is usually ready for potty training between two or three years of age, some babies might take longer than expected to master the process. It does not mean, however, that they will never make it. The parent might want to have the baby’s health checked, as an undiscovered disease may be actually causing the delay in potty training. Rewarding the child is the best way to go. Gifts such as army toys go down well with boys or buy them some new cot bed bedding and they will be satisfied.

Parents might be inadvertently delaying the success of their child’s potty training due to inattention, or the utter lack of incentives. Every parent should know when it is time. Just some of the cues are a toddler who seems to have a regular vowel movement, who knows how to follow instructions, or even better, who is already asking for it.

Sometimes, a parent may fail to heed these clues because he or she is busy with another baby, or there is some other source of stress in the family, such as the need to find a better home.

To unravel the true reason for the delay in baby’s potty training success, parents should be their own worst critic. For example, the fact that they insist on having the baby wear coth diapers when the infant clearly feels uncomfortable about it, is an indication that something is wrong.

Indeed, parents should be the first to confront themselves about their questionable behavior or practices in potty training their young fellow; after all, they are the adults.

In summary, having no real diaper punishment story to tell is indicative of good parenting. However, if parents insist on having their toddler wear a coth diaper even when the baby is obviously showing signs of skin rashes, it is indicative of a diaper punishment story that goes much deeper as it is subliminal.

Considerations to Make When Choosing Baby Bedding

When it comes to selecting cot bedding for your baby, you will discover that the choice is overwhelming. While stores that cater for the parents of new babies will provide you with everything you require at a reasonable price, there are a number of considerations to make before purchasing bedding for your baby.

Bedding for babies is typically soft in style. However, for infants who turn in their sleep to face down, this could pose a risk. Ensure that your baby’s bedding is comfortable yet not too soft. This will help your baby to stay safe. If it is difficult to determine whether the bedding is too soft or not, push your hand down into the bedding. If your hand does too deep into the bedding, this means that the bedding is too soft and hence unsuitable for the baby.

The size of the baby bedding is an important consideration to make when choosing cot bedding. If the bedding is too small, the baby may get caught between the crib rails and the mattress. If it is too large, sleeping may be uncomfortable for your baby. It is essential to measure the baby bed with accuracy for this very reason.

Once the baby bedding set has been decided upon, then it is the time to think about sheets and blanks. A soft, hypoallergenic sheet is paramount for your baby’s comfort as is a cozy baby blanket. There are many different types of patterned baby sheets and blankets available for purchase. The majority of baby sheets and blanks are made from either wool or cotton. For comfort, cotton is preferable.

It is essential to choose your baby’s bedding with care as it can mean all the difference between your baby receiving a good night’s sleep and a restless night’s sleep. If your baby is happy and comfortable with its bedding then you will be too.

Suits for toddlers are an important consideration as your baby grows older and tra
