In the beginning, you were responsible for every aspect of your baby's hygiene and toileting, but now they are older what tasks can you realistically expect them to start taking care of?
Remember they're in the 'I can do it!' stage, so they will hopefully be more than willing to give the following self-care skills a go.

TIPS: Help them learn dressing through games; leave time for self-dressing; and allow choice when you can.

Have your child sit on the potty before bath, when they are naked and in the bathroom anyway. The sound of running water sometimes makes them go! Then start trying after naptimes, when they often need to go as well.
If they are happy to sit, pop them on at regular intervals and give them something to play with or a book.
Night nappies may stay on for some time after they have the day toileting sorted.
Having your child in their own 'big bed' by this point will make night-time toilet training that much easier.
If it's not working or is making everyone tense, back off and try again in a month or so.
Remember, kids can go back a step if they are sick, stressed or in times of change.
