Potty Training Gear

Pull Ups! Seriously, don’t leave home without them! Pull Ups take so much of the stress out of potty training, especially when you’re away from home.

Many kids prefer a small potty.  Baby Bjorn makes a great one.  And IKEA has a super affordable option that’s great for stashing in the car.

Another option is a potty seat for the toilet.  First Step makes a comfy one and the built-in style seats are great for a bathroom that’s shared with adults.

You’ll need a step stool and these faucet extenders make hand washing a breeze.

When you’re ready to try without the Pull Ups, thick training underwear are a great option.

Night training often happens much later.  Save your bed sheets and try Huggies Overnights.

Good luck and happy potty training!
