A MUM who was convinced she had nailed potty training her daughter was in for a shock.
Mason and Kaylie, who are parents to three girls, uploaded a video showing an unfortunate accident their youngest had.
Kaylie said on her @varneyfamily account: “Our youngest decided to wipe her ass down every single stair on the staircase today.
“I guess that’s what we get for trying to potty train her.
“Don’t have kids. Don’t have kids.
“I hate potty training. Tips please!”
Her video has clearly struck a chord with other parents, as it has racked up over 200,000 likes.
One person joked in the comments: “She scooted like a dog?”
Another added: “I’m laughing so hard at this! Gonna have to nickname her skidmark!”
A third commented: “Potty training…not for the weak.”
According to Baby Centre, it could take as little as a few weeks or several months to become potty trained.
Girls are usually potty trained before boys, but if a boy has older siblings he may learn faster than a new-born.
When it comes to how long it takes, every child is different.
The NHS says: “Children are able to control their bladder and bowels when they’re physically ready and when they want to be dry and clean.
“Every child is different, so it’s best not to compare your child with others.”
And it’s important to note children will likely be able to control their bowels before their bladder.
Some children can begin potty training aged 18 months, some begin when they’re four-years-old.
Most parents will start between the ages of two and three.
Don’t try and pressurise your child into using the potty, if they simply refuse or aren’t ready if you force them it could take longer for them to learn and could set them back.
