If you're thinking of toilet training your little one, here are some of the signs that they may or may not be ready. Remember there is no need to rush the process, and very little point of starting toilet training before they are ready. Parents often feel pressured to start toilet training based on the guidance or statements of well meaning friends or family.

Remember, these are just a few of the signs that your child might be ready for toilet training, but each child is different and you know your own child's signals best.

Let your child show you that they are ready.
