The Importance of Planning Ahead for Potty Training

We talk a lot on the blog about how to recognise the signs that show your toddler is ready to potty train and making sure that you strike the right balance between encouraging your child and not being too pushy. There’s also a lot of information about potty training accidents because we all have to deal with them at some point! But today we’d like to take a closer look at the equipment you should invest in and talk about the importance of preparation.

Easy Transitions

While we can never quite know when our child will be ready, potty training is like any other milestone which is why we recommend getting ready well in advance to avoid any unnecessary stress and worry.

One of the best parts about using a branded Family Seat product is that it is easy to fix to your existing toilet and will fit neatly into your current bathroom structure. This means you can start to get your child familiar with the seat before the process begins so things are less scary and unfamiliar down the line.

We cannot emphasise enough the importance of quality potty training seats being fitted before commencing with this milestone process. The Talia Soft Close Family Seat offers several key features that have been specifically designed to support the process and keep things running smoothly. 

  • The Family Seat brand 

First and foremost, we are the original creators of the combined all-in-one adult and child toilet seat and we have been manufacturing our trademark toilet seat since 2003. Thousands of children have successfully been potty trained using our seats which have been sold across the world from the US to Australia. As a mark of our commitment to quality and for your peace of mind, we also offer a 10 Year Guarantee against manufacturing defects on our all-in-one adult and child toilet seats.

  • Sturdy and stable seat platform

Confidence is essential for successful potty training. This means making sure your child feels confident in their abilities through consistent encouragement and minimising any stress or negativity around accidents or other stumbling blocks. It also means setting the stage for positivity and achievement from the very beginning, which is why the sturdy and stable child seat/potty training seat platform that the Talia Seat provides is so fundamental.

  • New “Lift-Off” feature

We all know that parenting is challenging enough so your gadgets don’t need to be! Available as of the beginning of this month, this feature has been added to the Talia seat as part of our ongoing efforts to create a product that stands head and shoulders above the competition to support children in mastering this milestone. This feature allows one to simply lift the seat off the hinge plates to allow full cleaning of the pan surface as well as the seat itself.  The seat can then easily refit onto the hinge plates using a simple click-on action. 

  • Soft Close

Helping children to alleviate fear is another key part of the process, which is why their toilet training seat needs to be sturdy, stable – and approachable! The Talia seat features a soft close function on all three sections, meaning little fingers can’t get trapped or stuck in the seat to encourage happy and confident little ones with no risk of injury!

  • Potty Training accessories

Part of the Family Seat promise is supporting each and every one of our customers to make the process engaging, personal and, ultimately, a lasting success. We are proud to say that no other supplier offers such assistance. As parents ourselves, we know how rewarding it is to see your little ones develop their independence and we also know that keeping things fun and light-hearted can go a long way. That’s why all of our seats come with a fully potty training accessories pack and series of aids and rewards-based incentives including a potty training chart, door hanger and Success Certificate. All of these items can be fully personalised with your child’s name and photo. You can also benefit from our free and comprehensive potty training guide to complement the process.

September is a key time of year to start potty training as older children go back to school leaving more time and attention free to focus on younger ones and the finer details of the potty training process. We are so pleased to say that our Family Seat branded products have been consistently well received by customers with a proven track record of positive reactions to the rewards system.

The Family Seat Progress Chart and Door Hanger are a great way to set up a rewards-based system for potty training. Every Family Seat comes complete with these potty-training essentials as well as a 10-Year Guarantee. We have also created a comprehensive potty training guide that is free to access through our website, click here to read the guide including a range of expert tips and answers to common potty-training problems.

Family Seat supports the children’s communication charity I CAN, who are experts in helping children to develop the language, speech and communication skills that they need to thrive in our 21st-century world. We donate 50p to I CAN on every seat purchased through the official Family Seat website.
