The child was growing and proving heavy for the Mother to lift her on and off the toilet. There was also the desire to give her the independence to use the toilet without assistance. The space available and the height required made commercially available steps unsuitable. The purpose-built steps gives her that ability.
A mock-up of a set of steps was built in chipboard and shown to the family. This allowed a meaningful discussion on the precise dimensions required. The steps themselves were built from good quality Birch ply screwed and gluued to hardwood blocks.
Independence for the child.
