Potty training is one of those child developmental stages parents can find tricky to say the least! Making the transition from nappy to toilet can certainly be a challenge, so this page gives you some useful information which we hope will help you and your child reach this milestone.
The following statistics were taken from an article from the Institute of Health Visiting UK.
By the age of three, 9 out of 10 children are dry most days.
By the age of four, most children are reliably dry.
Some signs that your child may be ready for toilet training:
- they know when they have a wet or dirty nappy
- they get to know when they are passing urine and may tell you they are doing it
- the gap between wetting is at least an hour
- they show you they need to wee by fidgeting or going somewhere hidden or quiet
- they tell you when they need to wee
It is important to remember that every child is different, so try not to compare your child to others, and potty train when you think the time is right for your child.
