Setting up your home: Bathroom

IN THE BATHROOM:

  • Can they reach the sink?
  • Is the foot stool wide and stable?
  • Can they turn on the tap? Do they know the difference between the hot and cold taps? Have I shown them how to turn on the tap gently?
  • Can they reach the soap?
  • Is the hand towel accessible?
  • Have I shown them how to wash their hands?
  • Do they have their own comb/brush? Have I shown them how to comb their hair?
  • Do they have access to their toothbrush and toothpaste? Are they in a consistent place?
  • Have I shown them how to use the toothpaste?
  • In the toilet, can they easily reach the toilet paper? Have I shown them how much toilet paper is adequate?
  • Is the toilet stool stable? Do they have adequate room to turn around safely?
  • Have I taught them a toilet routine? For example, toilet, wipe, flush, close toilet lid, close toilet door, wash hands
  • In the bath/shower, do they have access to the soap? Have I taught them how to wash themselves?
  • Do they have access to child-sized shampoo/conditioner/body wash in easy-to-open bottles? Have I shown them how much is appropriate?
  • Is there a washing basket which they can access?
  • Do they have access to clean washers and towels?
  • If I am allowing them to use the taps, have I checked the hot water temperature at the system? Have I taught them how to check the temperature when using the taps?

One thought on “Setting up your home: Bathroom

  1. i have a little challenge with the bathroom. setting a stool in the bathroom results in that stool traveling around the house, ending up near the railing (most of the time), for the little man tries to climb on that railing. so i had to remove it for now.

    he thinks toothpaste is candy and tries to eat it, so i put it away, not in a reachable place.

    but everything else – is a wonderful list! thanx! i have a lot to work on in this department
