Q&A: Can I hurry the potty training process before our new baby arrives?
I'm due in three months, and my toddler just won't use the potty. What should I do to get her interested before the new baby gets here?
It’s really best not to set a potty training deadline for your child. She may learn to use the potty by time the baby arrives, and she may not. The baby is your timeframe, not hers.
Have her sit on her potty chair a couple of times each day, read potty stories to her, and have dolls and Teddy bears sit on the potty. Have her watch you and others use the toilet. Pressure to perform works against potty-training success. Also keep in mind that even if your child learns to use the potty before the baby arrives, she’ll likely regress once the baby is born.
