You may be able to start toilet training when your child...

• shows an interest in the potty

• knows he is “going to the toilet”

• can tell you that she needs to “go”

• has regular bowel movements

• stays dry in diapers for several hours in a row

• has very wet rather than damp diapers

• can take down and pull up his own pants

• can understand simple instructions

• can stand up and sit down

• wants to be independent


Most children are ready to begin toilet training when they are between two and four years old. However, every child is different. Try not to rush toilet training, when your child is ready this is a simple proceedure one which will last even during stressful situations.

Try and relax I haven't seen a child in Kindergarten wearing diapers yet!
