Timing is everything when it comes to toilet training success.
As any parent who's been through it can tell you, trying to force the toilet on a ‘not-quite-ready’ toddler only prolongs the process (and makes everyone miserable!).
So how can you tell if your little one is ready to make the leap from nappies to the toilet?
Here are ten tell-tale signs:
- Shows an interest in the toilet, potty or underpants
- Stays dry for two or more hours
- Wants to watch you ‘go’
- 'Number twos’ happening on a predictable schedule
- Complains about wet or dirty nappies, and wants to be changed
- Can follow basic instructions.
- Understands basic vocab like "wee" and "poop"
- Can tell you when they need to go—or uses body language, like going into a corner or grunting
- Can pull their pants up and down with little assistance
- Can learn to use toilet training gear, such as a Step-on-Up Toilet Trainer Seat or Bumbo Step n’ Potty.
And remember, help is here for any age and stage.
