What is my child capable of?
Here at Little Bunny Bear, we make it our mission to help parents to understand that the concept of a child being “ready” to potty learn is a myth that is used by disposable nappy companies to keep you buying their products for longer. Potty Training should be done when the parent is ready to lead the process and stop using nappies, children are born ready to learn. This video will help parents to understand what their children are capable of learning at different stages of development.
As heard on BBC Radio4 Woman’s Hour!
“When it comes to potty training, we unpick the fads from what works. Rebecca Mottram, a children’s nurse who now runs her own business teaching potty training and Christina Hardyment, author of Dream Babies help us to work out the dos and don’ts – and what has changed over the years.” This episode of Woman’s Hour features our very own Rebecca Mottram as she demystifies potty learning and talks about why it is again becoming a popular choice among parents.
