Potty training Florence The time has arrived and the potty that has been sitting in our bathroom for 6 months is out and in use... Yes the potty has been used! Tip: Someone advised me months ago that if you buy the potty well in advance and keep it in the house for Your toddler to play with, sit on, put dolly's on, when the time comes to start the training she is not afraid of it. Good advise!
We bought this fantastic potty by 'Jahgoo' It is a 3 in 1 it is a potty Potty-ToiletSeat-StepStool This gorgeous and practical 3-in-1 bath room accessory is, first and foremost, an ergonomically designed potty. The reservoir is easy to remove for uncomplicated cleaning. The removable non-slip toilet seat fits perfectly on any toilet seat. The stool can be used as a foot rest when sitting on the big toilet, or as a stand-alone step stool. When the child is fully potty trained, the stable step stool turns into a handy tool for all those hard-to-reach places around the house as it holds both children and adults. It is also great because it is higher than basic potty's so easier to get onto for your little one. I am not going to lie, for the first ever trial I said that if she managed to go to the toilet successfully she could have a treat. A treat for Florence could range from a sweetie, a piece of dark chocolate (she prefers that to milk-takes after her JaJa) or even a toy that I know she has not played with for a while that I wrapped up!! It worked, I took off her nappy and said that if she needed to go to the toilet she had to use the potty. I was busy typing up a quick blog whilst she was busy doing some drawing and suddenly she started pointing and showing me that she had done a 'poo poo in the potty'. It was heart wrenching- she was so proud and I was too. I put a couple of dark chocolate drops in her hand and the deal was done. Since then the bribes are no longer needed, we have created a pretty good happy dance-for our eyes only, which is performed after each success. Flossie Doing her happy dance, too cute not to share.
Good luck everyone I have shared my techniques, everyone has there own ways but hope this helps a little!
