We are here to help you potty train your young star when they are ready to start their journey. Like many parents, actress Reese Witherspoon knows only too well the challenges of potty training.

Getting your little one out of nappies and into pants can seem like a daunting task. Most little ones are around two and many are nearer three before they even start to show signs that they are ready, every child is different.

Huggies® Pull-Ups® potty training expert and psychologist Emma Kenny says: ‘Potty training is a significant milestone in a child’s development and it can seem like information overload for parents working out the best approach for their toddler – but it needn’t be an arduous task.’

A commonly asked question which many parents have is, ‘when should I start potty training my child?’ The answer will vary for each child as many factors can influence when they will be ready to begin. What’s important is for parents to identify the signs that their little boy or girl is ready to start toilet training and helping their little one learn how to graduate to undies.

That’s why there is the 8 signs of readiness to help you determine when your little one is ready to start.
