Potty Training

Potty Training should be a fun educational experience for your child!

Remembering that you cant force your child to use a Potty is important and useful. If they are not ready, then you wont be able to make them use it or want to use it.

How to know when to start Potty Training your child
  • The best thing to do is to encourage the behaviour that you want.
  • Most parents think about potty training when their child is around 18 to 24 months old, however there is no perfect time.
  • Most find it easier to start training in the summer when there are fewer clothes to be taken off and washed nappies dry quicker.
When the time is right your child will be happy and ready to use the potty and will be very happy when they get it right.
How to start Potty Training

Leaving a Potty where your child can see it is the best first practice. This helps them to get to know what its for. If you have older children, then your toddler seeing their sibling using the Potty is a great help. It will excite and intrigue them making them want to have a go.
If your child has a regular bowel movement every day leave off the nappy and suggest for them to use the Potty. (If this upsets your child in any way, put the nappy back on and try again in a few weeks)

As soon as you see that your child knows when theyre going to pee, encourage them to use their Potty. If your child slips up, just mop it up and wait for next time. It takes a while to get the hang of it. If you dont make a fuss when they have an accident, they wont feel anxious and worried and are more likely to be successful the next time.

Your child will be excited when they succeed in using the Potty and praising them will help a lot. However, dont make a big deal about it, just give them a little praise.
