Supporting Potty Training

Cherylynn Wray - Sunday, December 09, 2018 -

Research tells us that the age at which children become toilet trained has risen over the last 50 years from around 2years of age in the 1960s to over 3 years, with many children now starting school still not fully toilet trained. There are a number of factors cited for this including the prolonged use of disposable products, resulting in many parents missing the signs of readiness such as being dry after a nap or having increased intervals between voids.

 

Delayed toilet training can have an impact not only on a children’s social development but also their bladder and bowel health. Studies have directly linked delayed bladder and bowel control with an increase in children developing continence problems, such as over active bladders, and constipation.

 

To try and address the issues Bladder and Bowel UK offer a confidential helpline service to support both carers and professionals seeking further advice and information around toilet training. We also have a website with free downloadable resources.
