Potty Training Girls

Potty training girls is not always easy.

Potty training girls may seem easier for some parents, but this is not always the case. Girls may seem to potty train easier since it is usually the mom who does the potty training, and girls want to be like their mom by wearing "big girl" panties like mom. Girls are usually more interested in potty training at an earlier age than boys, but what I have seen is that once boys want to potty train they end up being completely potty trained by the same age that girls are potty trained.

There are a few things to potty training a girl that one needs to know. When potty training a girl it is important that you teach them how to wipe from front to back. Since girls are more likely to get infections around their genitals it is very important that they wipe thoroughly. If a girl gets an infection this could easily slow down the potty training process. When a little girl experiences pain when she goes to the potty, she is likely to not want to go to the potty. She will associate pottying with pain and will refuse to go. If this occurs with your daughter, take some time off from potty training and give her cranberry juice to drink, and this should help get rid of the infection. Reassure her that the pain will go away, and let her know that you are there to help.
