Have your child sit comfortably on the toilet. Sitting with his feet and legs apart and leaning forward with a straight back will help him empty out wee and poo. He can use a footstool to support his feet.
Wipe your child’s bottom or help with wiping. Ask him to bend forward. Always wipe from front to back. If your child misses the toilet and wee or poo gets on the floor, just clean it up without fuss or comment.
Help your child wash his hands, then give him lots of praise for doing a wee or poo in the toilet. If you’re ever concerned about your child’s toileting, speak to your health professional.
