Potty Training Tools of the Trade

So my 2 1/2 year old, Lila, is turning out to be so much better at toilet training than I dared to dream. I almost don’t want to jinx it by explaining how comfortable she is with the process or how few accidents she’s had. But I’ll tell you that I know things are going a little easier because of a few tools in our arsenal. One are these toilet seat covers—an indisputable must now that we’re taking her out of the house in underwear. Unlike the ones you see in public bathrooms, these “potty toppers” have adhesive backs, so there’s no risk of one falling off the seat. I lived for these when I was training my older daughter, and my love has not diminished.

New to the game is a product called The Little Looster. As you can see from the photo, it’s a white plastic stool that wraps around the base of the toilet and keeps little legs at the perfect height. Lila didn’t dig it at first, but now using it is all part of her routine. (The makers say that it’s narrow enough that you don’t need to move it when it’s not being used, but we like to get it out of the way.) The Looster really adds to Lila’s confidence and reduced her initial fear of falling in.

What products have made potty training easier for your family?

    My spouse and i felt now cheerful when Raymond managed to complete his researching through the entire precious recommendations he acquired from your web site. It’s not at all simplistic just to happen to be handing out guidance some people might have been selling. So we take into account we’ve got the blog owner to appreciate for this. The main illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward blog menu, the friendships your site give support to engender – it’s got everything extraordinary, and it’s leading our son and our family recognize that this concept is thrilling, and that is particularly serious. Many thanks for all the pieces!
