Three top tips to potty training success

Potty training success - Number one

The first tip to potty training success with your toddler is to make sure that they are ready.

Trying to potty train a child that is not ready is like trying to teach your cat to play fetch. By trying to potty train your toddler to early you are setting both you and your toddler up to fail. The failure your toddler may feel can make potty training a long, drawn out, distressing process.

Potty training success - Number two

Potty training can be a demanding and stressful period for your toddler so keeping them interested is very important.

A potty with their favourite character on, toys to play with around the potty, reading stories on the potty all help to take the pressure of your toddler and encourage your toddler to use the potty as they don't feel like they are missing out on playing.

Potty training success - Number three

Potty training is a great way to strengthen the bond between you and your toddler. Giving your toddler praise will help them to achieve their goals.

Rewarding your toddler with trips out will give you and your toddler quality time together and really help to build the love and trust between toddler and parent.
