Toilet learning is an exciting indication that your toddler is growing up! As your child undertakes this significant step toward independence, she begins to refine an awareness of her body and her needs that will continue to develop and expand. Your child will also notice a meaningful connection that she will soon have with you – she gets to use the toilet just like you!

Potties and Potty Seats
Baby Bjorn Potty Chair: Comfortable, ergonomic design, with splashguard (particularly good for boys). Removable bowl for easy emptying. Consider purchasing one for each bathroom, common area, or outdoor space your child uses.
Jessa Leona Potty Training Seat: When your child is around 2.5 or 3, you may want to begin to transition your child to an adult-sized toilet. At first thought, consider using a child potty seat that sits atop the adult toilet seat.
OXO Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty for Travel: If your family is traveling, consider a potty chair you can leave in your car for bathroom emergencies.
In the Bathroom
Prince Lionhart Faucet Extender: A faucet extender will help direct running water to where your child can reach.
mDesign Over-the-Cabinet Kitchen Storage Hook: Hang a hook over a cabinet door so you can position a towel low enough for a child to reach.
For the Bedroom
Sures Waterproof Mattress Protector: This waterproof sheet can be used under a cotton sheet.
Goodnites Disposable Bed Pads: Use a disposable bed pad on top of the sheet to protect your child’s bed linens from getting wet.
Laundry Basket: Consider a small laundry basket in each bathroom so dirty clothes can go directly into the basket after toileting.
Gerber Training Underwear: When your child experiences the natural sensation of being wet or dirty, she is motivated to learn how to prevent that result. Once active toilet learning has begun, we discourage the use of pull-ups during the day. Instead, use training underwear that has a thick front and will soak up liquid well.
Changing Bag: Be ready to change your infant’s diaper anytime with this simple and elegant changing bag.
Clip-on Dispenser for Munchkin Arm & Hammer Diaper Bags: Diaper bags on the go are ideal for your stroller or car.
Munchkin Arm & Hammer Diaper Bags: These diaper bags are lavender scented, convenient, easy to tear apart and great for at home or on-the-go.
Kandoo Kids Flushable Wipes Travel Pack: Around age 2 or 3, consider flushable toddler wipes as your child learns to wipe herself.
Disinfectant Wipes: Even when everything goes right, you’ll need a quick way to sanitize the bowl of the potty chair after emptying it.
