12 mins

Toilet training your toddler can be a messy affair, so we ask child child expert Chris Minogue about the best way for them to master their bathroom technique. Learn the difference between toilet training and toilet timing, when to use nappies versus underpants and why you should resist the urge to reward them after they’ve done their business.

Also check out her night-time toileting advice too.
