Mastering the potty – your simple guide to successful potty training
As the warm breeze of summer rolls in, if you've been contemplating when to start your potty training journey, now is the perfect time to dive in. With longer days and more time spent outdoors, summer offers an ideal time for potty training success.
Why summer?
Summer provides the ideal backdrop for potty training for lots of reasons. Firstly, the warmer weather means you can dress your little one in lighter clothing, making it easier for quick trips to the potty. It’s not so cold out, so you don’t have to worry about your little one getting chilly if they are contemplating the potty with only their pull-ups on. Additionally, spending more time outdoors allows for more opportunities to practice using the potty. Moreover, many parents find that their schedules are more relaxed during the summer months, with fewer commitments and activities. This flexibility allows you to dedicate more time and attention to potty training without the added stress of a busy schedule.
