First day jitters?
Don’t be nervous about your first day of School, we know it can seem a bit overwhelming for both you and your toddler. However, we are here to help!
Not all children will progress through toilet training school at the same pace. For some kids it will all seem easy. For others it can be a journey full of highs and lows. But to give yourself and your child the best chance at success make sure you are armed with the tools, information and advice you need!
How to score A’s in Toilet Training
Let your child set the pace
Trust your child, let your child set the pace. Don’t try to force them to learn too fast. Support them with the encouragement and positive feedback they need. Look out for the Signs of Readiness.
Say “You’ll do better next time” or “Don’t worry about the accident, we’ll get it right soon”. Keep building confidence. Encourage those ‘Big Kid’ feelings.
Try your best to avoid giving mixed signals. Switching back and forth to nappies is confusing to a child. Once you make the switch to training pants, stick with it. Wearing training pants makes your child feel like a “big girl” or “big boy”.
There will be accidents! But mistakes are what we learn from. There may be times when your child seems like they are regressing. Don’t get discouraged – this is perfectly normal. Be confident that things will be back on track in no time.

Are You Ready?
While you may be ready for your child to be toilet trained and see the end of nappies, what’s even more important is that your toddler is showing the signs of toilet training readiness.
Introducing the following tools from the start of toilet training can really help to make toilet training more relaxed for you and your child.
You and your child are ready and you have everything you need, so now it’s time to get busy! Let Pull-Ups guide you through just what to do when you start to take action.
There will be ups and downs during the toilet training process. Be patient, you and your child will get there. For hints and tips, you’ll find the reading below useful.
Is my child ready to start school?
There is no ‘magic toilet training age’ – but it is always a good time to get prepared. The majority of children are ready sometime between 18 months and 3 years, although most do not fully master toileting skills until after their 2nd birthday.
If many of the Signs of Readiness listed below are clearly present, it’s probably time to start thinking about toilet training. Remember, if your first attempts are met with little success, or if your child starts out fine but then regresses, don’t worry. Just stop and start again later when your child appears more ready or interested in starting. If you try again with not much luck, consider some toilet training tips
