For Parents & Parents-To-Be


print header

When it comes to toilet learning, every child is different. Some children are ready as young as 18 months, but most start between 2 and 4 years of age.

As a parent, it’s your job to be patient and follow your child’s cues through each step of the process.

And Remember:

  • Toilet learning won’t happen overnight. It can take between 3 and 6 months before your child is out of diapers for good.
  • It’s important that everyone is consistent and working together.
  • Expect accidents – they will happen!
