It’s potty training time, every child goes through it and so does every parent. But it doesn’t have to be a time of dread and tears, just prepare yourself for a few puddles and lots of washing and it won’t be long before you’re cheering that little bit of liquid in the potty!
When is the right time to start?
Don’t try to potty train by a certain date. Time pressure can cause you and your child unecessary stress.
If your child is showing two or more of the following signs you may want to start your potty training journey.
Your toddler can stay
dry for up to two hours or during a nap
They let you know when they need to go to the toilet.
They imitate your behaviour and follow you to the bathroom.
They’re showing signs of independence by doing things themselves.
They ask to be changed and dislike the feeling of being wet.

When it comes to choosing the right potty training products for your child, there are a few important
features you should be looking for. Ensure that the products are easy to clean as you will be doing a lot of this and be sure that they are sturdy with non-slip surfaces to ensure the ultimate safety for your toddler.
Unlike nappies, potty training pants can be pulled up and down by your toddler and really do make them feel like a big girl/boy. Reusable potty training pants will hold small accidents saving outer clothes, socks and shoes from getting wet. But unlike disposable training pants they will not take the moisture away from the skin. Using potty training pants is a vital part of potty training as your child will notice the difference between wet and dry.
