  • When should I start to potty train?

    Older relatives may tell you that all their children were out of nappies before their first birthday but, like much well-meant 'advice', it's often laced with a few dashes of exaggeration.

    The fact is, you and your child are unique when it comes to the potty - so don't rush things, or be put off, by other people's comments.

    If you do think the time might be right, then it's worth looking out for these clues from your child first:

    • Your child stays dry for up to two hours
    • An interest in watching herself wee and seeing you go to the toilet
    • Telling you when she's wet and is keen to take off her nappy because it's uncomfy
    • They are generally dry after a nap
    • They can communicate and follow simple instructions

     If they're ready (and experts reckon most children will be physically and emotionally ready some time between the ages of 2 and 3), then go for it! 

    Why not check out some more of these clues that your child might be ready to potty train or read these tips from mums on how they tackled potty training?

    Good luck - why not let us know which potty is your favourite?
