You’ve probably heard that potty training can take weeks or even months. But what if there was a potty training plan that could have your child toilet trained in just 5 days? It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! With this plan, you’ll be able to successfully potty train your child in record time.

  1. Why potty train in 5 days?

Most pediatricians recommend potty training your child in 3 days to a week. Why? Because it can be a challenging process for both parents and child. And, while some kids may be ready earlier, it’s best to give your child plenty of time to get comfortable with the process and make sure they’re successful. That’s why our 5-day potty training plan is designed to help you toilet train your child in a week. By following this plan, you’ll be giving your child the time and tools they need to succeed.


  1. How to know if your child is ready to potty train

Some signs that your child may be ready to start potty training include being able to stay dry for longer periods of time, wanting to wear underwear, and knowing when they have to go. If you think your child is ready, it’s time to get started!


  1. What you’ll need to potty train in 5 days

So you’ve decided to potty train your child. Good for you! Now what? The first thing you’ll need is a plan. Our 5-day potty training plan is tried and tested and will have your child successfully potty trained in no time. But before we get into the nitty gritty, let’s go over what you’ll need:

– Plenty of drinks (water and juice are good)

– A potty or stool to sit on in the bathroom

– A positive attitude

– Some treats or toys as rewards

– Some distractions (for those inevitable accidents)

Now that you’re armed with what you’ll need, let’s get started!


  1. The 5-day potty training plan

Ready to toilet train your little one in just five short days? This plan is designed to help you successfully potty train your child in as little time as possible. But bear in mind that every child is different, so don’t be discouraged if it takes a little longer for yours to get the hang of things. On the first day, start by introducing your child to the potty and explaining what it’s for. Let them know that it’s a special place just for them to go pee and poop. From there, follow these simple steps each day until your child is successfully potty trained!


  • When your child wakes up in the morning, take off their soggy diaper and bid it farewell. Have your kid throw the diaper out and say “bye-bye.”
  • Dress them in an oversized T-shirt and/or big kid underwear and explain there is no diaper to catch the pee-pee or poop, so they have to put it in the potty.
  • Give your kid breakfast and an extra drink. Afterwards, lead your little one to the potty. It should be a successful trip after all those liquids.
  • Go on with the day, but remember, no leaving the house during the three-day potty training. Play, read, color, and watch cartoons.
  • Have a sippy cup of water in your kid’s reach at all times. Just like crate-training a puppy, walk your child to the potty every 15 minutes, all day long, for three days.
  • Cut off all liquids and snacks after dinner while potty training.
  • Complete one final potty mission before bed.
  • Wake your kid up halfway through the night to pee. (Yes, set an alarm.)
  • Repeat for the next two days.
  • Don’t get upset about potty-training accidents. They’re not a big deal. Don’t react.
