Signs that your child is ready to toilet train

Is your child showing signs of being ready to toilet train? Some children show signs of being ready as early as 18 months, and some might be older than 2 years.

It might be time for toilet training if your child:

  • is walking and can sit for short periods of time
  • is generally more independent, including saying ‘no’ more often
  • is interested in watching others go to the toilet
  • has dry nappies for 2 or more hours
  • tells you with words or gestures when they do a poo or wee in their nappy
  • begins to dislike wearing a nappy, perhaps trying to pull it off when it’s wet or soiled
  • has regular, soft, formed bowel movements
  • can pull their pants up and down
  • can follow simple instructions like ‘Give the ball to Daddy’.

Nappy pants pull up and down like underpants. This helps your child’s transition to underwear as your child learns to pull them up and down all by themself and also encourages them to feel like a big kid!
