Amanda Jenner, the inventor of My Carry Potty and the newly appointed HUGGIES® Pull-Ups potty training ambassador is a mother of three so she has had her fair share of poo and wee related toddler disasters over the years!
She wants to make potty training – an essential milestone – easier for everyone without mums feeling they have to stay confined to the house. “Potty training is a big thing and it can be stressful – the last thing you want is to feel like you cannot leave the house when you’re trying to get a child dry.” says Amanda.
“Not all children can crack it in two days as some experts would have you believe – being able to go out and knowing that you can still enjoy your normal life is essential – otherwise you are making it tougher than necessary.”
As the weather gets better, many people think it’s an ideal time to tackle this essential stage of child development but just don’t know where to start so here’s a few pointers to help.
1. Let your child choose a potty – the My Carry Potty animal designs have instant child appeal. Get your toddler to sit on it often so that they get used to it.
2. As soon as your child is up in the morning, get them to sit on the potty as part of their morning routine.
3. Praise them – positive feedback each time they manage to visit the potty will help them feel good.
4. Never show your frustration at accidents – it can be hard but setbacks are normal. Potty training needs to stay relaxed.
5. Make hand washing a fun part of the routine and use a hygiene hand gel when you’re out.
6. Share your child’s likes and dislikes with nursery or a childminder if you use one – continuity is everything for a little one.
7. Every child is different – don’t worry if it seems that others seem to be getting the hang of it more quickly. Keep positive – you and your little one are doing great!
