When is the best time to start?

On average when your child is 2 years old or a little older. This is when they are more aware and can understand instructions easier.

Also make sure there is nothing major going on in your lives like a new baby, starting nursery, moving house etc, as this can be distracting and stressful to your little one.

Where do i start?

The most simple way to try things out is let your child do their normal activities around your home with no nappy on.

With them being used to having a nappy on all the time, they will become aware that nothing is there and hopefully tell you when they need to go to the toilet.

If you see them holding themselves or looking irritable, then you might want to take them over to the potty and sit them down on it, saying a word they recognize for needing the toilet, so they know why they are sitting on there.

It worked - what now?

Make sure you always praise your child for doing so well verbally, and/or by offering them a small treat like a piece of fruit.

It didn't work ....

Be patient. Children are all different. Just because a family member or friend's child is doing it at the same age, it's not something that is set in stone for all. Sometimes children cant grasp the potty until about 2 and half or older.

Most importantly don't get angry at your child or punish them if they make a mess. This will just associate anger and feeling negative towards the whole thing.

Avoid:

Training nappy pants. These will confuse your child, as they will think they still have a nappy on. When they progress more on the potty and know when to use it by themselves you can introduce it then as something they can do themselves on their own.

Also if your teaching a boy it's easier for you and them to help them to sit on the potty first rather than stand, then they can progress to standing up over time.

I would love to hear your own potty training stories and any tips you may have too.
