Potty Training: Getting Everyone Involved

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I recently attended a teleconference with potty training experts Dr. Alberto Andres Cotton and Jeannette Kaplun who gave tips and advice on potty training.

Dr.Cotton is a well respected Miami based pediatrician with 17 years of experience. He has dedicated his career to the well-being of children, as well as providing Hispanic mothers with the right information to give the best care. Dr. Andres Cotton has teamed up with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pull Ups Every Flush Program to share his expertise with Hispanic moms by offering tips and advice that challenge some of the preconceived notions of potty training.

Jeanette Kaplun is an award-winning journalist and internationally recognized parenting expert who has over 17 years of experience on TV, radio, online media and as a published author and conference speaker. Jeannette Kaplan is known as one of the leading Latina Bloggers in the US and in May 2012 was invited to the White House as part of LATISM's Top Blogueras Retreat. She began blogging about her pregnancy and motherhood in the early 2000's, which makes her a true pioneer in the Latino/Hispanic world.

In this teleconference I got a lot of helpful information. I learned that each child is different and boys may take longer than girls, especially at night. It is also important that both parents have an agreement so there's no confusion for the child. 
Everyone should be involved. Once the child starts potty training every one should help. Dad, grandma, auntie, and cousins should all be engaged and educated on the importance of training pants, the process and the fun rituals that make sticking with the process easier and most importantly that Every try deserves a little celebration.
