Potty Training with Thomas and Friends Book
We started the first steps of potty training Miss M last Christmas and she took to it so well. We bought her some ‘big girl’ pants with her favourite cartoon characters on them and she felt very grown up.
Bearing in mind she follows us into the toilet uninvited all the time, she had a good idea of what went on in there!
We decided at the time not to push the issue too much as I was pregnant and we wanted to keep life as simple as possible. Instead, we let her take the lead.
So if we were going to the toilet, we asked if she wanted to go too for a wee and she soon started asking us herself if we would take her. It really helped that her grandparents and carers at daycare did the same and she got to see the other children using the potty or the toilet too.
We just didn’t push it and she did very well with very few accidents.
There was probably a point along the way that we should have enforced the ‘training’ more so but we didn’t so now we’re at the point still where she’s ‘almost’ potty trained.
As we’re emigrating to Australia soon and will be boarding a long haul flight, we’ve decided to wait until we’re settled before ‘finishing’ the task of potty training but I was excited to be sent these two Thomas & Friends potty training books (published by Egmont RRP £5.99) to encourage her along when we start again!
The Thomas & Friends My Thomas Potty Book goes through every step of the potty training experience from choosing pants, using the potty, accidents and washing hands.
The Thomas & Friends Well Done Thomas Activity Book encourages positivity during the process with activities, rewards charts and certificates.
Miss M loves Thomas & Friends and has done since she first started watching TV and as well as that, she LOVES stickers, so I think this system will really help her complete her potty training. Why do all toddlers love stickers so much?!
I grew up watching Thomas & Friends too and I love that she’s a fan of the show. In fact, she knows more of the characters than I do!
The books are not just a rewards system but they aim to educate her on the whole potty training process so we’re sure that we can use them well to teach us and her what to do, rather than just winging it as before!
