Oliver recently started preschool and with that comes the dreaded questions of potty training. I’m sharing 5 ways to prepare for potty training with Kandoo Flushable Wipes.

We are heading towards the realm of potty training with Oliver and let me tell you, I am scared out of my mind. I told myself before I had a second baby that I wanted my first out of diapers. I was so naive. Once it really came down to start getting Oliver ready, I noticed I needed to educate myself a little better.
I figured the best way to educate myself was ask my close girlfriends what the hell I do. They helped me realize that I need to prepare myself, and here is our plan:
Consistency – I find this works best with anything I try to teach Oliver. Stay consistent. Our first major transition was into his toddler bed, and keeping consistency was key. It’s important they understand the routine. Make a chart and place it next to their potty so they can see their progress.
Clean up – This is obviously going to get messy. The best way to help us clean up is using Kandoo Flushable Wipes. They just introduced new tub design with a pop & lock lid for little hands. I love that it seals in moisture, and the wipes pop up one at a time! These wipes let Oliver get clean all by himself and feel independent.
Educate – Show your little one what to do. Explain to them where the potty is, what to do on the potty and what to do afterwards. Have them experiment themselves by flushing the toilet and washing their hands.
Make it Fun – Grab your toddler and go shopping for some new underwear. There is nothing cuter than a little booty in underpants! Letting them pick out their favorite is a fun process for them and helps them get excited. I can’t wait to see Oliver in little undies! While you’re at it, grab a few treats to reward them for every time they make it to the bathroom in time!
Encouragement – Giving them a reward is fun, but I find it better to give Oliver encouragement. Keeping him excited and optimistic about the potty training process will hopefully bring success. I try using phrases such as “Great job!”, “You’re so grown up!” “Let’s keep trying!”. This usually works for other scenarios and I’m hoping to make potty training a positive transition for him.
I hope these tips and tricks can help you ease your mind about potty training! I may be a little terrified but I’m happy to have Kandoo Flushable Wipes by my side!
