Get dry- simply and naturally

"But your child has to be clean."

This demand when the child enters kindergarten almost sounds threatening in parents' ears. Often, panic takes over and efforts are made to wean children off nappies. Still, calm and patience are better ways to react. Before the child turns two, he cannot consciously regulate his bladder- and intestinal musculature anyway.
In the past, this was not known and children were forced to stay dry through toilet training.


Proud of the business

Parents should explain to their children that there is a relation between feeling of pressure inside the bladder or in the bowel and the release of the muscles.
It's also easier for the child when he is wearing clothes and nappies that can be pulled off independently.
Still, you shouldn't incessantly ask the child if he has to go to the toilet. Instead, remember to ask this before leaving the house, for example. Most children know on their own when something pushes and call attention to their needs. It is crucial not to leave the child alone during the walk to the toilet and not to expand it too long. Here, too, the best response is patience; usually it´s like learning to walk - it works with time and understanding support.
When something lands in the nappy or toilet, parents should praise the child and everyone should feel happy about the great progress.


Summertime is advantageous

Summer is a good season to start toilet training. As the child moves without nappies it senses when something is expelled. Less favourable times are during a move or the coming birth of a brother or sister. Then the child is busy with different issues.


Use curiosity
At age three, children show an interest in this topic by themselves. They realise when parents or older sisters and brothers go to the toilet. This is a good point at which to carefully and sensitively begin toilet training. Whether the parents supply a potty or a toilet seat is not important. Some kids instantly want to sit on the toilet like their great idols, others prefer the smaller and more manageable potty. This should simply be tried out. What is important is that the child feels comfortable on the potty as well as on the toilet seat and doesn't want to stand up again.  



The following short overview shows you the selection of products with their product advantages and capabilities:

Children´s potty

A children´s potty can be placed everywhere in the house and is therefore accessible more quickly when required. Moreover, the child needs to have no fear of falling into the toilet. Children often sit down on the potty while playing without using it for the real purpose or place dolls and soft toys on it. Therefore, it is very suitable in the early stage of toilet training.


Toilet seat

Toilet seats have the advantage of reducing the toilet opening. Therefore, they take away the child's fear of falling in the toilet. Moreover, children can better copy the ehaviour of adults. Besides, it is easier to clean than a potty.

The combination of a toilet seat and step stool is well suited for smaller children. The child can then reach the toilet seat without outside help.


Children´s stool

On the one hand perfectly suitable to use in combination with the toilet seat- that´s how the way to the adult's toilet is already possible very early. On the other hand, the children´s stool enables them to reach the wash basin without outside help and to practice every day personal care quite independently. Another alternative are toilet trainers with steps that make it easier for your children to get to the toilet seat.


Toilet trainer

The Kidskit toilet trainer is available in 4 colours. It is equipped with non-slip feet, handles and is also foldable. The anatomically formed toilet trainer can be also used separately. Moreover, it can be converted to a potty.
