Guide for childcare providers

I’ve just written a new guide for childcare providers. This concise fact-sheet gives a brief introduction to BLPT. It explains how childcarers can work with parents to provide consistency of care, and gives some ideas as to how they can offer the potty in the childcare setting.

Feel free to download it, print it off and give it to your childcare provider.

I’d love to hear what your nursery, childminder or nanny thinks about BLPT, and how they get on with pottying your baby. Let me know in the comments below.


Free workshops in 2015!

The new year is already speeding past so it’s time I get on with working out the workshops for the coming year. I’m going to be doing things slightly differently this year….

The first workshop of the year will be next week: Wed 28th January, 11am – 12pm and will be a drop in style workshop – so no need to book.

After that, I’ll be taking bookings for the rest of the year’s workshps. If you want to come along, you’ll need to drop me an email. (If I get organised enough, I may even create a booking form page on the website somewhere). The workshops themselves are totally free (though I will ask you to make a £2 donation to Kangaroo playgroup, who hosts us), and you can come as many times you you like.

Here are the years dates: Continue reading

All that is going to change from now on: my brand new book Nappy Free Baby: a practical guide to baby-led potty training from birth is off to the typesetter on Monday!

Don’t worry there’ll be plenty more news about that later… but for now it means that I finally have some free time to work on my website and keeping you up to date with all my news and musings on the wonderful world of nappy free. Continue reading

My first catch – remembered

Exactly six years ago today!

Ok, so I may not have got the absolutely exact actual day, but I had my very first ‘catch’ when my daughter was five weeks old, back in 2008. My little girl is not so little anymore – she turned 6 five weeks ago.

Here’s what happened:
