“Guiding young children to become independently toilet trained can be one of the most stressful parenting challenges,” added Alina. “Let’s Go Potty mission is to support families as they embark on this key milestone, reduce stress and make it a positive experience for everyone.”

We want everyone supporting a child or family with potty training to have the confidence and knowledge to: 

  • Look for signs of readiness for potty training from 18 months. 
  • Feel empowered to establish good bladder and bowel health in all children from babyhood.
  • Know where to access resources and support, especially if things don’t go to plan. 
  • Reduce the number of nappies and wipes going to landfill each year. 
  • Reverse the trend of children reaching school age still wearing nappies. 

“We want to promote a better understanding of toilet training as an important element in the healthy development of toddlers, fostering their independence and self-esteem and laying  a strong foundation for lifelong good bowel and bladder health.”
