Lets talk Potty Training!

When is the right time?

Who knows! On my sons second Birthday, whilst out for a Pizza he decided to inform me that he needed a poop. Wow I thought, he must be ready and lots of his friends had begun the process. After a week of constantly washing dirty trousers and wee off the wall, I decided perhaps not.  Maybe this was my fault as I didn’t adhere to the advice of staying at home for two weeks! Anyway, Lockdown happened and I decided now was my chance. He was approaching 3 and I couldn’t leave the house anyway. Day one went swimmingly, not a single accident. After day three I decided that he could join my dog walk and so could the potty. Again this worked a treat. I set a timer for every 30 minutes and asked him to sit on the potty for one minute each time with various rewards and limited liquids if I knew we were leaving the house. A few months later we have almost cracked it entirely, number two’s are another battle entirely! I am far from an expert so I have decided to list a few top products from registered Nannies and mum friends! At Bambino and Butler we have specialised Nannies that can come into your home and assist with any requirements on a short term basis including Potty Training, sleep training or help with disruptive behaviour.

Here are our first 5 recommendations. Stay tuned for more. Please also feel free to email or message with any invaluable tips/ lessons.

Enjoy ?

 

  1. Firstly the fold up toilet seat! You no longer have to carry a potty to friends houses or restaurants. My son wont sit on a loo seat as he is scared he will fall down. Genius!

2. A great book that I read to prepare myself was “Oh Crap”. It managed to maintain a good sense of humour throughout and made me feel ready to tackle the challenge. If you read a book about a topic, you feel more prepared.

  1. Sticker charts seem to do the trick whenever there is positive reinforcement required. This one comes with two charts, cards and a crown! This one is Dinosaur themed however there are many options.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Potty-Training-Reward-Chart-Toddlers/dp/B07P19X6MN/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?adgrpid=103401190266&dchild=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwkJj6BRA-EiwA0ZVPVswQI3NbARQrfOXqH9a0Ow40BfQmg1fTsRAa8f_ia7UoAmKPvZxIHhoC4A4QAvD_BwE&hvadid=446495535982&hvdev=c&hvlocint=9045931&hvlocphy=1006789&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=16815659893002471025&hvtargid=kwd-382411403027&hydadcr=10815_1737653&keywords=toilet+training+chart&qid=1598444252&sr=8-1-spons&tag=googhydr-21&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyWEUzNkU5VUxWWE5KJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDIyMTM3MTZQOUtBUjQ4Sk40TCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMTk2MDQ0MlJTSEJVV0tZQjMyWSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

  1. A book you can read with your child may help them prepare for what Is to come. One that comes highly recommended is Pirate Pete/Polly.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pirate-Pollys-Potty-Princess-Polly/dp/0241384923/ref=asc_df_0241384923/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=256138708498&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6619154565736987790&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006789&hvtargid=pla-740565399354&psc=1&th=1&psc=1

 

  1. Potty Training Pants. If there is an accident, it is far better that it is contained. The last thing you need is a whole outfit change or a wet car seat! These are great and come in blue or pink. You will have to carry a few pairs around but the trousers they are wearing will remain safe!
