Potty training two or more toddlers isn't usually as difficult as parents expect it to be and in most cases will soon become a distant memory. However, it can still be quite challenging and messy as it is hard to keep an eye on more than one child at a time.

Here’s our top tips…

  • Wait until your child shows signs they are ready
  • When the weather is warmer it will be easier as they will be wearing less clothes
  • Get them involved in choosing the potty so it is one they like
  • Where possible, buy one for each child so they feel treated as an individual
  • Keep clothing simple to remove
  • Give lots of praise
  • Try to remain calm so they don’t pick up on your frustrations
  • Try to avoid starting when there are other major events happening e.g moving home
