All children are different and this is very true when it comes to toilet training! There is no set age, in preschool years that a child should be to achieve this. The most important thing is to look out for signs your child is ready for toilet training. Here are some common ones:
- They can stay dry for up to 2 hours during the day.
- They can ask to go to the toilet; this can be through talking, visuals or hand gestures.
- They can walk and sit for short amounts of time
- They seem uncomfortable wearing a wet or soiled nappy.
- They are able to pull pants/trousers up and down.
Children can also struggle with cleaning and dressing after toileting. This can include finding buttons and zips tricky, sequencing toileting and co-ordinating their body to reach to clean or dress.
