What is potty training?

Potty training is when you're teaching your child to use the toilet instead of nappies. It's a great way for them to learn how to do something on their own, and it can help teach responsibility as well. It's an important part of growing up. The key to a successful potty training experience is being patient and consistent and accepting that accidents will happen!
