See this kid losing her shit over these marshmallows – she woke up on Sunday and declared she was a “big girl” and would be no longer wearing nappies. And just like that she was toilet trained. I shit you not.

I’d like to share my tips with you, except to say the age of three, or roundabouts, has been the magic toilet training number in our house. With Number One we tried to start way earlier when she wasn’t ready and it was excruciating. It dragged on and on. With Number 2 we waited until she was closer to three years old and within a few days she was nappy free and with Number 3 we just decided we’d let her tell us when she was ready. And blow me down, that’s exactly what she did, one month off turning three. A girl who knows her own mind.

Got any toilet training tips?
