Potty Training a Girl


Girls are often times considered easier to potty train.  Possibly girls are easier to train because childcare providers prior to kindergarten are often times a female. Much learning occurs by imitation or watching others and copying the same actions.  So girls might have an advantage to the potty training process simply because of the role models around her during her preschool years.


There are gender differences that require a slightly different approach to the toilet training process.  Girls need to learn to be seated when ready to use the potty chair.  When they are done peeing, they need to learn to wipe themselves.  Girls need to learn the proper way to wipe so that not to introduce bacteria into their body which can cause bladder infections.  Girls need to wipe from the front to the back. Sometimes it is easier to have young girls pat themselves dry to avoid transfer of bacteria that can cause bladder infections.

What motivates a girl to use the potty chair? There is some lovely, adorable girls underwear on the market!  Compare these eye-catching undies to diapers with your daughter. The difference between the two is quite motivating as little girls love to wear cute, adorable things.
