Preparing the Environment – Toileting (part 1 of 2)

“Just hang in there and keep in mind that the transition to the toilet will liberate you, to say nothing of the money you’ll save on diapers and the relief of the leaving the two-ton diaper bag at home.”
from Trees Make the Best Mobiles, Jessica Teich and Brandel France de Bravo

Creating a Physical Space for Toileting

The space where your child will learn to use the toilet must be well prepared. This means that you must spend time looking at and evaluating the space before you introduce the toilet to your child. Small aspects of the environment can be modified later; consistency in the environment creates consistent routine.

You will need:

  • A toilet
  • Sink
  • Step stool
  • Soap
  • Handtowel
  • Wipes
  • Hamper
  • Clean underwear

For more detail o how to choose these items and the best way to set them up read Toilet Awareness, join us for our class on Saturday September 20th at West U Wellness, or our webinar on September 23rd (free book included with registration to the class or webinar).
