Your potty training toolkit

Believe it or not, potty training can be a fun and rewarding experience for Big Kids and parents alike. But when you’re just getting started, it can seem like quite a challenge. To help you face up to that challenge, we’ve gathered some expert advice and practical tips that will make the whole potty training journey easier.

Challenge accepted! Let the games begin!

First, check you’re both ready

Because every Big Kid is different, there are no hard and fast rules to #PottyTrainingTogether

Your Big Kid will let you know when they’re ready to potty train with some unmistakable body language. Check out the link below for more information on spotting the signs.

Signs of readiness

Things you’ll need

Potty (or toilet seat and step)

This is the seat of learning. The potty is your Big Kid’s friend and should always be kept close by, especially in the early stages!

A special soap

Always important, but especially now, hand hygiene is a vital part of the Big Kid Game. Build it into your potty training routine and reward good hand washing with stickers and praise.

Potty training timer

Building a potty training routine is important. A potty training timer will help them know when it’s time to go.

Potty Training Theme Book

Use a potty training book to help make potty training fun and engaging for your Big Kid.
