When the time comes to teach your baby to use the toilet or potty, it can bring up a surprising range of emotions. Excitement, anxiety, dread, and even sadness that your baby is growing up. But, did you know that it can be a fun, relaxed, and positive experience for both you and your little one?
It’s all in your attitude and approach (read about the toilet learning approach here), but a huge part is in the planning and the products you use to set your child up for success when they’re ready.
babyU has created a range of amazing toilet training products that are designed to make your life easier both at home or on-the-go. They’re simple, easy to use, and aimed at reducing any fears (and mess) surrounding toilet learning.
