1. Make sure your child is ready
There is no one right or wrong potty training age. Clues to look out for: your child telling you that they have a wet/dirty nappy, they tell you when they are doing it or they go somewhere private to have a wee or a poo.
2. Choose a time that’s right for you
Make sure you have time for washing, tidying up, etc and be prepared for accidents. It’s a good idea to make a list of needed equipment to make this journey stress free.
3. Keep a potty in the bathroom and another one in a room
Encourage your child to sit on it a few times a day. If potty is on a carpet, make sure the area around the potty is covered with a waterproof mat in case of any spillages.
4. Prepare lots of clothes changes
Clothes should be easy to take off and put on.
5. Cover the bed and sofa with waterproof mats
A waterproof mat will save you a lot of washing and tidying up and protect your furniture. Make sure to choose a safe option such as the PeapodMats.
