Toilet paper must be an item that is already you use in your toilet area. However consider buying flushable wipes too that is easier to wipe and clean your kid. With such wet wipes you will feel it is easier to clean the kid than using toilet paper.

A good hand wash for kids

Together with potty training, you also need to teach the kid about basic hygiene practice. Therefore it is essential to train him to wash hands after the potty session. A safe and good hand wash is essential in such reason. Therefore look for a kid friendly hand wash before you start potty train your kid.

Potty training tools and other products to entertain the kid

  1. My sister is actually expecting her very first child in about a month, so this article would definitely prove helpful to her in the future – I’ll give this a share her way fro sure. 🙂

  2. I only used a training potty for my first child and found a potty seat worked better for us with the remaining kids. I think it helped that they saw their older brother using the big toilet and a potty seat. But I do think having the child pick out their potty seat would get them more excited to use it.

  3. What a cute potty seat! I’ve always purchased the potty when my little ones reached the ten month mark. Now that we are approaching ten months with my youngest daughter I will have to look into this seat!

  4. I am going to need to remember this post in a couple of years from now when my daughter starts potty training. I love the penguin!

  5. We had a couple potties to help the process along. One in each bathroom and one in the car for convenience. We started out with our potty in the living room so the TV was their entertainment.

  6. Perfect items for potty training. I used all except Potty seat, actually I did way with Elimination communication right after a year and that too directly on the bathroom pot.

  7. O how I remember those days. They have come a long way with better products to help with potty training, wish I had some of this stuff back when I was doing it!

  8. When Elias was potty training I bought a portable toilet at target. It had lights and music. It cheered him when he peed or poop and it made noise when he flushed!!

  9. The potty makes all the difference!! When you’re potty training (like we currently are- for the THIRD time) it’s important to make it fun for the kids and like you said- get a potty that they will want to sit on!

  10. I have no idea yet when it comes to training toddlers nor kids. This post is such a helpful one. I will make this as reference in the future.
