What products should I buy to make potty training easier?

5/5 (1 rating)
Potty training can be a daunting thing – especially if you’re a first time parent! You may think it’s unbelievable that the tiny baby whose nappies you changed is ready to do something so grown up, but, by the time your child is two, there’s a good chance that that’s exactly the case.

You may have already bought the basic equipment – a potty and training pants - but there are quite a few other things that can make the process a little easier.

Believe it or not, there are plenty of books and videos on potty training that you can get for your preschooler. Since kids love books and stories, and since they tend to watch or read them over and over again, these can be invaluable tools.

Making a potty training chart, where you mark your child’s progress, and assigning rewards for certain achievements, can play a big role in your child’s potty training success!

Giving your child a stepping stool to the ‘big’ potty, and a child sized potty seat, can also be a big help, as it encourages your child to mimic mummy and daddy – something they all love doing anyway!

Targets, whether they’re specifically bought for the purpose, or just some o shaped cereal that you float in the toilet, can also help both boys and girls.

Finally, the most important thing that you need, is patience and perseverance. With a positive attitude, and by rewarding your child’s successes, and glossing over failures, you will find that potty training can be a fun experience, and go a lot smoother.
