citrus DD is quite a calm child but my stairs also go up from my living room, so I can supervise her going up without needing to go with her. The toilet is at the top of the stairs and I can see in it from the living room, when the door is left open.
Thankyou for your suggestions everyone, I will get my tape measure out and decide which step will be best to try.
My DD has been potty trained for 6 months now, but even with a step, is too small to get on the toilet without me lifting her on. I am really fed up with going up and down the stairs to take her to the toilet, whilst trying to care for a newborn (10 days). Any suggestions to enable her to get on the toilet by herself? She manages all other aspects of toileting without help. I don't like having a potty in my living room and I would still need to go and empty and clean it anyway and take DD upstairs to wash her hands, so it doesn't help much.
