Starting toilet training
From about 2 years, children start to show signs they’re ready for toilet training.
Preparation helps toilet training to go smoothly. So before you start, it’s good to learn more about how toilet training works, how to get started and what to expect during the process. It’s also good to think about practical things like potties, pull-ups and accidents.
In this webinar, we’ll explain how to:
- tell when your child is ready for toilet training
- get organised for toilet training
- prepare your child for toilet training
- start toilet training
- deal with toileting accidents.
In the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions, share experiences, and hear other parents’ experiences and ideas.
If you have a child aged 1-4 years this webinar is suitable for you. It’s also suitable if your child is younger and you want to be ready when the time comes to start toilet training.
If you register for the webinar, we’ll send you a link to the recording, even if you can’t make it on the night.
