Useful reminders for potty training toddlers
Remind toddlers of these simple potty training rules
There’s a lot for toddlers to remember when it comes to potty training, so a few reminders will ensure they get the hang of things.
Flushing the toilet
Toddlers don't always understand that the toilet should be clean after they use it; so inject some fun to help them remember to flush. A coloured toilet bowl cleaner, which changes the water from clear to colour, can serve as an entertaining reminder. Some young children have an initial fear of the flushing toilet, so bear this in mind if your toddler is reluctant to flush and be patient with this step.
Step by step
If the full process of using the bathroom is proving too much for your little one to remember, make a sign or download one of our door hangers to demonstrate the simple steps of potty etiquette, including sitting on the potty or toilet, wiping, flushing and washing hands.
Whistle while you wash
Many kids skip the hand washing bit or certainly don’t spend long enough to achieve a good wash. The World Health Organisation recommends spending 15 seconds on hand washing to do it properly, so why not encourage them to sing a song while they scrub?
