** Disclaimer – this is definitely not a ‘how to potty train your toddler post’ This is more of an opportunity to laugh at myself and allow you to laugh along with me! **
I should start by saying that Hannah has been using a potty since she was seven months old – she had constipation issues and we introduced the potty in the hope she could comfortably go on it and she did. She has been using it morning, evening and after nap time since then and often at other nappy changes so she was familiar with it and happy to use it. It certainly was a help when it came to actual potty training.
Lots of people ask about potty training and the dos and don’ts and what worked and what didn’t, these are such hard questions to answer as every child is so different and they train at different ages and over different time frames. But I thought I would share a few thoughts about what I learnt along the way, we really do learn so much from our children!
