Rewind 3 days to when we tried to do the same thing. Pants go on just after he's sat on the potty and squeezed out 2 tiny drops of wee. Tiny insignificant amounts. Really looked like he was trying too. Three minutes later and we have
I decide enough is enough, and go to put on his pull up. But no he doesn't want it on. "I want to use potty Mummy". "But you're not using it Noah!". We wrestle with each other. Me getting one leg in a pull up, I just get the other one in, and he gets the first out. This goes on for a while until I WIN! I distract him and then he forgets the whole thing and I carry on disinfecting the floor. This is life right now for us. It's quite a different story for others, with fewer laughs and much more serious implications.
Some 2.5 billion people (37% of the global population) live without access to safe toilets. 2000 children a day die from Diarrhoea. That's a staggering figure to me. A situation that could be prevented by improved sanitation. Domestos and the Unilever foundation have partnered with UNICEF to improve access to sanitation by UNICEF's Community Approaches to Total Sanitation Programme. CATS is a programme to highlight the need for improvements in basic hygiene and raise awareness of the sanitation crisis so to stop the transmission of disease.
Check out this cute video of children passing on information to each other about the Domestos/ UNICEF programme. It shows how Chinese whispers work to a tee but you'll get the message!
Look for the specially marked Domestos bottles in the supermarket to help Unilever meet it's goal of helping 1 billion people take action to improve their health and sanitation. The CATS programme is in action in 50 countries worldwide, from Indonesia to India, to Ghana to Brazil, helping children to enjoy better lives.
Look here for more details of the campaign.
