When to start potty training?
Potty training…. One will start when their child is 2.5 years old and another will say: “I’ll wait until they are ready!” But what if that doesn’t happen? Are you going to wait until the very last minute just before they go to primary school?
If we’re talking about potty training most parents feel insecure and/or called upon. So many people have an opinion about it. Parents, Parents in law, friends, teachers. “Is your child still wearing a nappy?” Or: “Are you starting already?” You are never doing it the right way. 😉
Signals vs. age
We recommend to look at signs. Because from these signs you can tell if it’s useful to start potty training.
The signals are:
- Can they sit unsupported?
- Can they walk?
- Do they let you know that their nappy is full?
- Can he/she say no?
- Does he or she understand (simple) tasks and carry them out?
- Can your toddler imitate something or someone?
- Can he/she pick up an item?
- Is your child interested in the potty or toilet?
If you can tick 3-4 signals, they are ready to start potty training!
Are you ready? Can you take time off to start?
Teaching your child to get potty trained is often not something you look forward to and is most of the time not something that happens overnight. But, when you do this together – in a week time- you will rock this!
The feedback we receive from parents is often that they wished they would have started sooner. The results are amazing and it saves some penny’s too ( around GBP 350 per half year!) and we haven’t even mention how thankful the environment will be when you stop using nappies.
‘In the end it’s amazing to see the confidence boost your child gets from starting this adventure with you!’
So….. What are you waiting for? 😉
