Toilet training children can sometimes be a bit of a messy business, as accidents are bound to happen. At Earlybirds we help children on a daily basis to make the next step.
So we have put together a few tips to give you the confidence to help your child with toilet training with out too much disruption and mess.
The staring point for toilet training your child is a matter of readiness and confidence. Your child won't be physically able to control their bowels and bladder until a certain point in their growth.
Thats why is important your child is ready and that you as a parent are happy before you start as correct timings for both of you will help make it as stress-free as possible.
To help get you child used to the idea of using the toilet , we would recommend getting a potty. Although some children are confident enough to use the toilet straight a way a potty is alway a good idea if you are going on a car journey (incase of emergency) and to have a back up if your toilet is in use.
When buying pants for the first time its a great idea to involve your child as they are more likely to wear pants that they have chosen (and more likely to use the potty/toilet).
Putting them in clothing that is easy to pull up and down with not too many buttons or fastenings on will also help. Children often get caught out if they are having to negotiate popper on vests and buttons on trousers.
