What were your very first thoughts regarding toilet training?
My first thoughts of potty training were, how on earth do I do it with 3? When out and about with one, that’s not too difficult but with 3 toddlers, that’s a real mission.
What were your biggest challenges when toilet training?
The biggest challenge was deciding to do all 3 at the same time. I didnt want to ‘choose’ one, finish then start all over again with the next one.
What did you think you needed to start toilet training?
As a mum of 6 I knew I needed potties, a step and maybe a training seat. I had seen people saying there was a ‘portable potty’ and I thought that might be helpful when we were out.
Was there any help out there for you to turn too?
I didn’t actively look for any help as such in the beginning. However, I came across the Potty Training Academy on Instagram and thought their pack may help us on our journey.
When did you first hear about My Carry Potty/ Potty Training Academy?
We heard about My Carry Potty on Facebook about a month into starting potty training and The Potty Training Academy not long after.
Do you feel that using a My Carry Potty/ Potty Training Academy has helped your toilet training journey?
Both products have helped enormously. My Carry Potty has been on set with us when filming in the woods and under the buggy in town. The Potty Training Academy helped a lot as visual stimulus at home- they loved the treat box and stickers on the reward chart too.
What advice would you give to parents who are thinking about toilet training?
I would suggest parents look for signs of readiness. The My Carry Potty is invaluable for parents who do not want to be restricted to home whilst potty training. For incentives when at home, The Potty Training Academy will definitely give you great start.
What is the one thing that you wished you had known before toilet training?
I wish I had known that training 3 toddlers at once was not as scary as I thought it would be. I had visions of the house being covered in ‘surprises’ but we only had a few bad ones!
What piece of advice would you give parents who are about to start their toilet training journey with their little one?
Just go for it if you think they are ready but you also need to be 100% committed to the journey ahead.
