Toilet training

Are you and your toddler just about ready to say goodbye to nappies for good? If you are, then it’s time to learn more on the subject of toilet training.

At first, toilet training (also known as potty training) can seem a bit overwhelming for you and your little toddler. But when you are both ready, the process can be both rewarding and fun. It can also be a memorable time, as your child is likely to say things about bodily functions that will make you laugh.
