Using a potty will be new to your child, so get them used to the idea step by step. Leave a potty where your child can see it and explain what it's for. Children learn by watching and copying. They also need to be able to sit on the potty and get up from it when they’re done, and follow your instructions.
Potty training is often easier in warm weather because there is less clothing to remove. You may even let your child go without pants or a nappy some of the time.
