Curious to know Potty Training Essentials?

Your baby is becoming a toddler and the time has come to take on the major task of potty training. Let’s be real—this is perhaps the biggest transition that your little one has had in their whole life up until now! Figuring out how to move from diapers to the toilet is a huge challenge, but having the right tools on hand will make it easier, both for them and for you.

So what essential tools do you need to help lend a hand during your adventures in potty training? Here are five of our absolute must-haves.

Are you looking to Potty Train your child? Then here are some essentials that will help you make the process easier as a parent. #pottytrainingessentials #pottytraining #pottytraining #motherhood #raisingtoddlers

1. The Right Underwear

First and foremost, the most important thing you’ll need is underwear! Ensuring you have pairs that are both comfortable and functional for your little one are going to make a big difference. Incontinence products for kids are a great way to go because they’re made to be absorbent. When you’re on the search for some good pairs of underwear, it’s not a bad idea to grab a reusable bed pad either to add an extra layer of protection at night and during nap time!

2. A Potty Training Toilet Seat

Next up is preparing the toilet to make it as comfortable as possible for your child. That big porcelain seat can look intimidating to your child, so adding something to help it look more approachable is going to be well worth it. A potty training toilet seat makes the perfect size seat for your child, allowing them to focus less on holding themselves up and more on the task at hand.

3. Floor Cleaner

It’s inevitable — there will be accidents, and when that happens, you will want to be prepared. Whether it’s cleaner for hard floors or carpeting, having the right supplies on hand to quickly clean up those spills and spots. When these accidents happen, be sure to tell your child that it’s ok. Accidents happen, and that is all part of the learning process. Perhaps let them play a part in the clean-up.

4. Plenty of Activities

Here’s the thing about potty training: at the beginning, it’s a lot of sitting in the bathroom waiting for something to happen. This gets all really quick, especially for a young child, so having plenty of fun games and activities on hand is going to really help. It could be a tablet playing their favorite show, a simple card game, or you could even purchase some special toys just for the occasion to get them excited.

5. A Reward System

Last but certainly not least, consider a kind of reward system that you can implement for your child and their potty training progress. It could be as simple as a sticker chart or magnet board to track how many times they’ve successfully used the toilet, or you could have a basket of small toys that they can choose from. Consider a big reward once they’re fully potty trained. A trip to the zoo, a day at a local water park, or their favorite treat at the end of the day are all great ideas!

Potty training is a huge step, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming! Grab all of the essentials and jump in – we promise it will be worth it!

    Those were the tough days , when as a parent I have to give potty training to my kids.
    Every morning it was a habit to let them sit for 5-10 minutes on the potty by keeping them busy with other things. A tough work for both parents and kids

    Reminds me of the time when I won that potty training seat just in time when my first born is about to do potty training. How timely! That same potty was used by my 2nd one. haha.. Your tips are very much informative especially for first time moms whose child is going through this stage. That floor cleaner tip is a must but usually forgotten. It’s great you included it in the list!
