While talking about toilet training in children, I would like to talk to you about a communication technique that has started to attract attention recently. Tİ meaning Toilet Communication.
First of all, it should be noted that toilet training and toilet communication are two completely different concepts. While there is an effort to change a habit of the child in toilet training, in toilet communication, the child has the experience of communicating with the child by reading his/her signs (such as the sounds he makes, leg movements, etc.) that he knows instinctively.
Ti aims to make babies go to the toilet (toilet bowl, potty, etc.) without using diapers from the moment they are born. Toilet communication can be started from the moment the baby is born.
Babies, like all other living things, come to the world with the instinct of not polluting themselves. At this point, babies actually tell us their toilet needs with some signs. For example, consider babies who pee every time their diaper is opened. While you are waiting for your diaper to do it, have you ever thought why every time you open the diaper fully, it pees?
In toilet communication, it is important that the parent understands the child’s signals. While there are certain times that have generally become universal, every child has their own times and signs. These are the moments when babies generally feel the need to go to the toilet when they wake up, during and after feeding, and when they are taken out of the transport vehicles. Signs of babies can be things like pulling their legs up, whining, straining, grimacing. Here, the harmony between the baby and the caregiver is very important. You can find the right signs by observing your baby.
