Pediatrician T. Berry Brazelton started teaching his child-led method of potty training in 1962. This method consists of a series of steps parent and child take together as the child shows interest. His approach was founded on the belief that parents have been pushing their kids to potty train too early, so the Brazelton method has no real timeline. First, the child gets to pick out their own potty, and when she is interested she is invited to sit on her potty fully clothed. Later, the child is allowed to sit on the stool with a bare bottom, but no pressure. We are just warming up to the idea of a toilet. Eventually, the parent tries putting soiled diapers in the potty chair and looks for the cue that the child might be interested in pottying in the toilet. Training pants can be introduced so that she can pull them up and down on her own. And as she discovers what her body does and when, she will enjoy doing her business like a big kid.
