Potty / Toilet

Video: Potty in Baby Sign Language

Signing: To sign potty, make your hand into a fist with thumb peeking out between the index finger and the middle finger. Hold the fist out and shake it around a little.

It is like your baby is ringing a bell to let you know it is potty time.

Usage: The potty sign is tremendously useful in potty training your baby. Using the sign, you can train babies earlier than if you had to wait until they could speak the word. As you potty train your baby, teach them to make the sign to get you to put them on the potty.

    I understand the sign for potty better than the book I’ve just gotten out the library for my 2 year old son. The discription for potty/toilet is closed hand with middle finger extended, moves side to side on chest. For anybody that doesn’t sign this looks like my son is swearing and I was uncomfortable using this sign. Thank you for showing me a new way 🙂 x

    Kelly, it is not the middle finger. It is the sign for the letter P (closed hand with thumb between your pointer and middle finger) and then make the motion. Just wanted to clarify the sign for you.
