Help your little boy to dress himself by making sure his clothes don’t have tricky fastenings.
- Boys are usually slower than girls at learning to use the potty, so it is particularly important to avoid awkward fastenings on your little boy’s pants
- Look for adjustable straps on overalls, or add a button so the straps can be lengthened
- Pants with elastic waists are easiest but, if he has trousers with zippers, show him how to pull the zipper away from him as he closes it to prevent it from catching
- Show your little boy how to sit down to put his feet into his pants legs, then stand up to pull them up
