We are gearing up for Round 2 of potty training at our house. We are getting ready to train our 2nd boy and to be done potty training for good! This is definitely an exciting time, but we want to set ourselves up for success, so I thought today I’d share my best potty training tips with you and how we make it happen!
For starters, here are the basic essentials that you need to get started potty training-
- A potty seat or potty ring that goes over the regular toilet- I have found that in the beginning, in the trenches, a potty seat may work well because you can keep it in the room with you and your toddler for quick potty access. Then, they can transition to a ring on the regular toilet once they get better at making it to the bathroom in time.
- A step stool- This is great for getting little ones up onto the big potty as well as for hand washing!
- Pull-Ups® Learning Designs®!
My kiddos have both loved Pull-Ups, their underwear-like shape, and it is so handy how the character fades when wet on the learning designs. This is so helpful for them when learning when they need to go and a great motivation for keeping their Pull-Up dry.
Also, you’ll want a great potty chart to print for your little one. I’ve created a cute potty chart that you can download here.
You can fill the boxes with stickers when your child accomplishes different tasks, and choose a reward for your child to work towards. I definitely recommend having a conversation with them and choosing something that is motivating for them, whether it is a new toy or a trip to the get frozen yogurt.
Finally, it definitely helps to create a fun and exciting atmosphere for your little ones in their bathroom or wherever they’ll be potty training.
I made some fun Flush/Wash/Brush printables for you to print as well. You can frame these in document frames to add a little special touch to the bathroom.
To stay stocked up on Pull-Ups, I recommend Sam’s Club! We love their bigger packages and great prices. Plus, you have so many options from shopping in store to ordering online, or doing Club Pickup!
My final tip for potty training is to get your little one excited about it. If you can keep your attitude light and up beat about a tricky situation, your kiddo will follow suit. Keep things fun and potty training will be a breeze!
