Toilet Training With Illumibowl

Now that Aoife has hit two, toilet training is something that I have started to think about.
She has been displaying quite a few signs over the last few months which have indicated that she is ready to give it a go:

Pulling at a dirty nappy
Telling me when she is "wet" or needs to "poop"
Waking dry from a nap
Showing interest when someone else uses the toilet
Wiping herself when I change her
With all of these signs in mind, out I went to pick up a potty, toilet seat, step, pull ups and Peppa Pig knickers!
Aoife enjoys copying people and tends to pick things up from watching other children, so when we had friends over recently who are toilet training their daughter, I figured this would be the perfect opportunity. Off came the nappy and we let her run free under her dress; potty close by of course!
This "perfect opportunity" resulted in a poop on the kitchen floor and another in the living room which ended up rubbed into the carpet; definitely not my best parenting moment!
When I was contacted by Illumibowl to test out their Motion Activated Toilet Light, the first person I thought would benefit from this was actually my husband; no more missing the bowl in the night for him!
Once the Illumibowl Toilet Light had been installed, I noticed that Aoife was starting to take a lot of notice in it and wanted to sit on the toilet more often to look down at the "pretty lights". I decided to start using this to my advantage and encourage her to use the "big girl" toilet instead of the potty.
She now loves to go into the bathroom and put her toilet seat on and position her step to allow her to sit up onto the toilet. Whilst we are still not fully toilet trained, she is certainly making progress and I do think the Illumibowl Toilet Light is helping keep her sat on the toilet rather than trying to fight her way off.
I have to say, it did take some getting used to at nights, but now I don't even notice it. Turns out it has helped my husband too and I no longer find questionable puddles on the bathroom floor in the morning!
