How To Buy Potty Training Products

Potty training can be scary and overwhelming for toddlers. But thankfully, you can make this phase calm and as fun as possible with a little help from potty training products. Here is a guide on how to buy potty training products to make potty training mess-free, pleasant and a success for both you and your toddler.

Pick A Fun Potty Chair and Seat

Sitting in a toilet can be very nerve-wracking for toddlers. Why? Because toilets are huge, cold and noisy. To help your little one go without the fuss, buy your little one a potty chair. Pick a potty chair that is made of plastic and preferably one in your toddler’s favorite color or one that features your toddler’s favorite character (e.g. cartoon characters, superheroes, princesses and forest designs are well-loved by young children). A potty chair that plays songs or cheers for your toddler can also encourage your toddler to go to the potty often. Buy at least 2 potty chairs as you will need them in different parts of your house.

Once your toddler is used to using a potty chair, he is now ready to transition to a potty seat. Choose one that is of your toddler’s size and is a perfect seat over the regular toilet seat. Again, pick one with a cute design so your toddler will enjoy sitting on it.

Find A Sturdy Step Stool

Your little one will need a step stool to help his feet reach the floor while using the regular toilet as well as help him reach the sink for brushing teeth and washing hands. Choose a step stool that is durable, one with rounded corners, a non-skid rubber surface and large, strong rubber feet to prevent the step stool from slipping on the floor. In addition, pick one that comes in fun colors or designs and see to it it is very easy to clean.

Invest In Potty Training Pants

Another potty training product every toddler must have are training pants. This comes in very handy for any trips out. There are two types of training pants – disposable and cloth. Disposable training pants are recommended because they are made for a toddler so he can effortlessly pull them on and off on his own. However, they are very similar to diapers so your little one may not be able to feel when he is wet which can prolong the potty training process. On the other hand, cloth training pants enables a toddler to feel when he is wet so he is able to go and use the potty on time. The only downside to cloth training pants is that they require washing.

Again, choose a “big kid underwear” with your toddler’s favorite character on it to motivate your toddler to potty train.

Do Not Forget The Potty Training Friend, Books and DVDs

Another effective way to help your toddler potty train successfully is to have a potty training friend and books and DVDs about potty training. A potty training doll can help your toddler learn how to use the potty as well as help your little one overcome any potty training fears so he can enjoy this journey.

Opt for potty training books with colorful illustrations and those that come with fun accessories such as stickers. Potty For Me! by Karen Katz, The Potty Train by David Hochman and First Look and Find: Elmo’s Potty Book are popular titles of potty training books. For potty training DVDs, pick one that demonstrates the process of going to the toilet through silly dances and singing in the most tasteful manner as possible. Animal characters are a favorite amongst toddlers.

Check Reviews

Do not forget to check for customer reviews before you buy potty training products. This is to make sure that the potty training products you will choose can deliver and are helpful for your toddler.

Make Sure The Products Are Safe

Most of all, see to it that the potty training products you wish to buy are in excellent condition. The potty chair, potty seat and training pants must be brand new. There should be no damages such as holes, cracks, chipped paint and sharp edges. If you are buying second-hand potty training books, DVDs and a doll, make sure they are not worn out and do not have any damages as well.

With the help of these potty training products, training your toddler to use the toilet will be very easy and enjoyable.

Myths and Facts About Bed Wetting In Children

Worried about your toddler wetting the bed? Here are some facts you need to know about the myths that surround bed wetting in children.

Myth # 1: Bed wetting is a sign of laziness.

Fact: Bed wetters have no control over their condition so blaming your toddler when he has wet the bed is not only erroneous but it will only make him feel bad about himself. Some toddlers have trouble waking up causing them to disregard the internal signal to pee while others have a functionally small bladder (they get a feeling that their bladder is full before it is) causing them to urinate.

Myth # 2: Toddlers who are bed wetters have emotional issues.

Fact: Psychological problems such as low self-esteem, anxiety or fear do not, in any way, cause toddlers to wet their beds. However, cases such as divorce of parents, death of a loved one or transferring to a new city may trigger bed wetting in a toddler who has been dry.

Myth # 3: Boys wet the bed more than girls.

Fact: True, gender plays a factor when it comes to bed wetting in children. Reports show that both toddler boys and girls are bed wetters, but, only 1/3 of bed wetting children are girls.

Myth # 4: Bed wetting is inherited.

Fact: Bed wetting tends to run in families. If you have a history of enuresis in your family, there is a 70% chance your toddler will become a bed wetter.

Myth # 5: Diapers can help stop bed wetting.

Fact: Making your toddler wear a diaper at night will not help him outgrow bed wetting on his own. But, it will keep your toddler from waking up wet and spare you the trouble of changing and washing bed covers repeatedly.

Myth # 6: Potty trained toddlers do not wet the bed.

Fact: Even though your little one knows how to use the toilet to pee and poop, he is still not free from bed wetting. Urine control is different during the day than it is at night.

Myth # 7: Limiting the amount of fluid intake before sleeping can reduce bed wetting.

Fact: Yes, controlling your toddler’s fluid intake before bedtime lessens the amount of urine released reducing the chances of your child to wet his bed.

Myth # 8: Bed wetters should be punished.

Fact: Again, toddlers do not wet their beds on purpose. Hence, punishing them is unnecessary and it will only increase the humiliation they feel. Instead, talk to your little one and reassure him that it is normal and that it is not his fault.

Myth # 9: Bed wetting is an indication of an underlying medical condition.

Fact: Some cases of bed wetting are triggered by underlying medical issues such as UTI (urinary tract infection), diabetes, sleep apnea and spinal cord problems. It would be best to consult with your doctor and have your toddler examined.

Bed wetting is only a phase most children go through during toddlerhood so you need not worry too much. As long as you help your toddler feel in control of the situation, he will overcome this setback in no time.

Potty Training Your Twin Toddlers

Potty training a toddler is challenging enough, but when you have twins, it means double the work and double the trouble. But as daunting as it may seem, potty training twins can actually be fun. Check out the tips below.

Look For Signs of Readiness

The best time to potty train toddlers is when they are ready. You know your toddlers are ready when they - show an interest when others use the toilet, want to wear “big kid” underwear, are uncomfortable wearing diapers and are able to go for a long period of time (30 minutes to an hour) without wetting their diapers.

However, do remember that there is a possibility that your twins may not be ready at the same time. If that is the case, never push the unprepared toddler as this will only create power struggle. But, chances are, when the unprepared twin sees the other use the potty, it can motivate the other twin to try it as well.

Buy Two Potties

A potty seat is something twins cannot share. Do get two potties so that both toddlers have their own. Have each toddler pick his favorite and let your twins adorn them with stickers so they know whose is whose and your twins get more thrilled about using them.

Introduce The Potty

One way to potty train your twins is to introduce the potty to them. Demonstrate how it should be used. Let them watch a video or read books about potty training. This will motivate your twin toddlers to try and it will show them that using the potty is normal and fun.

Keep Your Twins On A Same Schedule

Yes, twins have different personalities, but it is important to get them in sync. This is the easiest and most effective approach to potty train them. For instance, when toddler A feels the urge to pee, bring toddler B to the bathroom and encourage him to pee as well. You may use a timer and set it for 15 minutes or so. This way, you will not be rushing one twin and then the other to the toilet.

Do Not Make Comparisons

If toddler A is training more quickly than toddler B, do not compare toddler B to toddler A. Even if you are doing this to encourage toddler B, it might make him feel bad and strengthen feelings of jealousy and rivalry.

Be Flexible

Understand that potty training is no easy task. So expect accidents, messes, fussing and giving constant reminders. Just be patient. Ask for reinforcement from your spouse, mom or cousin to help prevent mishaps. Also, even if you have established a successful potty training routine, be ready to try different methods for other times.

Give Praise

Praise your twins each time they pee or poop in the potty. Give them a round of applause, a hug, kiss or a pat on the back. Sing or dance a potty song. Let them choose underwear they like and let them wear it as a reward for using the potty.

Keep in mind that potty training is a momentary transition. Your twins will eventually learn to use the toilet. So show your love, try not to stress it out and enjoy the process. Years from now, you will look back on this experience, laugh your heart out and think “What was the big deal?”.

What Causes Bed Wetting In Children?

Bed wetting is normal. It is part of a toddler’s development. However, it is important that you know its specific cause so you can prevent and treat it. Here are some common causes of bed wetting in children.


Bed wetting can be hereditary. Your toddler may be a bet wetter if both you and your husband were bed wetters when you were young. If this is the case, you do not have to worry since your toddler will simply outgrow it.

Medical Problems

Experts suggest that toddlers may suffer from an underlying medical condition that may be playing a large role in their bed wetting problem. Chronic constipation may be one of these conditions. Lack of regular bowel movements hampers a toddler’s bladder to hold urine which can cause bed wetting at night. Diabetes is another factor. If a toddler is normally dry at night, bed wetting may be the first sign of diabetes. Sleep apnea, a medical condition that causes a disruption in a toddler’s breathing while he sleeps is another reason why a toddler is bed wetting.

Also, if his urine is cloudy or pink, if he has redness or a rash in his genital area, if your toddler strains, feels burning or pain during urination, he may have a urinary tract infection. If you spot any of these signs, call your toddler’s pediatrician as soon as possible.

Inability To Recognize A Full Bladder

A nerve that controls the bladder sends a message to his brain that will alert him that his bladder is full. However, if the nerve that controls the bladder is slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your toddler, especially if he is a deep sleeper.

Small Bladder

A small functional bladder is another cause of bed wetting in children. Your toddler’s bladder may not be developed enough to hold urine produced during the night.


Toddlers feel stressed when major changes happen in their lives. For instance, they may start having bed wetting problems as they enter their school age, the arrival of a new baby in the family or changes in the family structure can trigger bed wetting. Over time, your toddler will cope and learn to adjust with these changes so this problem may just simply be resolved on its own. However, if bed wetting persists, you may need to seek professional help.

Psychological Issues

Your toddler’s bed wetting problems may have an underlying emotional cause, particularly home-related problems. He may not feel that he is safe in his own home due to certain circumstances such as divorce of parents, alcoholism and drug abuse of parents, if he is being abused or is suffering the loss of someone close to him. These psychological related issues need to be addressed professionally as soon as possible. He may need counseling as well as other forms of therapy to help him recover quickly.

Bed wetting can be a trying time for parents and children. It is an inevitable part of growing up, but it does not have to be traumatic.

Tips On Potty Training – Using Public Bathrooms

Toddlers not wanting to use public bathrooms is a common problem of parents. Luckily, parents can put an end to this crisis. Here are some tips on potty training toddlers in public.

Explain What Will Happen

Talk to your toddler beforehand. Explain what will happen when you are out, how restrooms will be different from the one at home and any worries you may have. Whenever you are out with your toddler, go to the bathroom so he can see you use a public restroom. This will make him realize that it is not a scary place after all. Tell your toddler that bathrooms in public places are okay, but he needs to be cautious. Point out all the objects he should not touch and use (e.g. cracked seat, unlocked cubicle, dirty walls and floor, etc.).

Doing this gives your toddler a chance to check things out sans the pressure or power struggle. He can familiarize himself with the environment. Familiarity brings about comfort, so it can make him less nervous about going to the public toilet.

Know Where The Restrooms Are

When you are out in public with your potty training toddler, always find out where the bathrooms are. This saves you some time when your toddler declares he needs to use the toilet since you do not have to ask or find the restrooms because you already know where they are located. This helps ease your own stress as well as your toddler’s, who is still trying to figure out when he really does have to “go”.

Bring An Insert or Potty Training Seat Covers

Make an strange place feel friendlier by bringing something from home. You can bring an insert to erase your toddler’s fear of falling into the toilet. However, bringing an insert each time you are out is inconvenient. Why not bring potty toilet seat covers instead. They provide a waterproof barrier between the toilet and your toddler and are big enough to offer maximum coverage by covering the sides and the front of the toilet. Plus, they are small enough to fit into your bag and you can just toss them in the trash bin after every use.

Prepare An “Oops” Bag

When you potty train your little one in public, you are more prone to accidents so be smart enough and pack extra things for your toddler such as an extra set of clothes, underwear, socks, baby wipes, small towel, pack of tissue and re-sealable plastic bags (for storing dirty things).

Go Somewhere Fun

What better way to ease your toddler’s anxiety of public bathrooms than by providing distraction. Choose child-friendly destinations when introducing public restrooms to your toddler. A very effective tip is to go to a toy store and let your toddler wander around until he has to use the restroom. His mind will be so focused on everything else that he will use the public bathroom and go back to checking all the toys after without a fuss or tear.

The most important thing about using public toilets with your potty training toddler is to be ready. Know what to anticipate and what actions you should do to make your trip as hassle-free as possible.

Potty Training Toddlers – What Works and What Doesn’t

Potty training toddlers, like any developmental milestone, is a journey. You need to take baby steps in order to do it successfully, so take a moment to learn what tends to work and what does not.

What Works

Starting Only When Your Toddler Is Ready

There is no definite time for being ready to start learning to use the potty. Some toddlers are ready as early as 18 months while others are not until they reach the age of 3. You will know when your toddler is ready to be potty trained with these tell-tale signs:

  • Can sit, walk and run steadily
  • Able to understand and carry out simple orders
  • Able to stay dry for at least 2 to 3 hours
  • Has regular, well-formed bowel movements
  • Informs you when he is about to pee or poop through his facial expression, words or posture
  • Shows a dislike for diapers

Having A Plan

Potty training your little one is not easy; hence, making a plan for the training process will make it easier for the both of you. Decide when and how you want to start, how to deal with accidents , when to back off and so on. At the same time, keep an open mind. There is no way to know how your toddler will react to your potty training techniques. Accept that there will be accidents. Like learning a new skill, both you and your toddler will need time to adjust, face setbacks and errors and practice. Seek out tips and advices from other people. Talk to your toddler’s pediatrician. Once you have decided on a strategy, make sure you and your toddler’s caregivers’ sticks to it.

Buying Toilet Training Products

Make potty training fun and uncomplicated for your little one by giving him the following items:

  • 2-3 potty seats (to make sure one is close at hand)
  • Potty training doll (the same gender as your toddler)
  • Bright-colored underpants (easily pulled up or down)
  • Books about potty training (to increase your tot’s knowledge of using the potty)
  • Wall chart (for tracking your child’s progress)

Using Rewards

Your toddler will respond well to positive reinforcement so give praise. Naturally, your toddler will feel good knowing he has done something good which will encourage your tot to continue with his progress. Telling your toddler you are proud of him, complimenting him on his dry underpants, placing a star sticker on his wall chart and giving him a new toy or his favorite food will boost up his confidence. Just make sure you do not go overboard.

Praise your toddler even if mishaps happen all the same. Tell him he did a great job trying, you are not mad and that he can always do better next time. This way, you motivate your toddler to keep on trying amidst the hurdles he faced and will face.

What Does Not

Training Too Early or At The Wrong Time

If you have been trying to potty train your toddler for several weeks without success, maybe he is not yet ready. Stop and try again after a few weeks. Changes can also prolong a tot’s readiness especially if he is having a new sibling, going to a new school or experiencing a growth spurt. Toddlers love consistency and any changes to their routine are likely to cause hold-ups. Wait until things have settled down before you start.

Pressuring Your Toddler

Never push your toddler to get through it faster than he can handle. Do not expect him to learn it within a day. This will only make your toddler nervous which will result to behavioral and health problems (e.g. anxiety attacks and constipation). Let him take his time. Train him step by step. Give words of encouragement. If mishaps happen, do not make your toddler feel guilty.

Punishing Your Toddler

Getting mad or reprimanding your toddler will only backfire on you. Setbacks are normal and scolding will only make him less interested in training, it will also make him scared to make mistakes to prevent upsetting you. Keep your cool and stay calm under pressure.

Potty training a toddler requires time, effort, patience, support and a little creativity from parents. With the help of these does and don’ts, you can make potty training as smooth as possible for you and your toddler.
