I want to thank Cottonelle for sponsoring today’s post! As always, my opinions and thoughts are 100% my own.
Let’s talk about bums…there I said it! (but seriously…think about joining the convo here)
The time has come: dun, dun, dunnnnnn…potty training! We’ve been low key and keeping it simple with Mabel. I personally don’t see any point in rushing it: when a kiddo is ready, they’ll let you know. 🙂
Lately Mabel has been giving us clues that she might be ready, so I stocked up on some bathroom must haves:
I chose a sleek gray potty chair for Mabel that had good reviews and looked sturdy, no need for a fancy-schmancy expensive one right? As long as it’s comfortable for Mabel, that’s all the counts!
Now on to the number one item: Cottonelle toilet paper! Both wet and dry. Nothing is worse than rough toilet paper, so in my house we only use Cottonelle! I buy in bulk on Amazon to save money (pictured above). The one new thing that we’ve all been trying in our house are the wet flushable cleansing cloths (safe for septic tanks which is key since that’s what we have!). But I figured they are also perfect for potty training since Mabel is already used to wipes…and of course they are great for adults too. They are now a staple in our bathroom!
You all know I’m a huge fan of books so of course Mabel got the hook up with a bunch a potty books. The Princess Potty book comes with a little punch out crown that you can add sticker gems to as a reward. She’s pretty thrilled about that. And her other favorite is Potty Time with Elmo since it makes sounds. She kept giggling every time she would push the button and Elmo would talk to her. 🙂
I have no problem buying her anything that gets her excited about potty training and becoming a ‘big girl‘. 🙂 I’m also not above bribery…so we did buy little candies as a reward for each time she goes.
One last thing that I’ve done has been letting her play with and be around all of her potty training items. I figured that once they become familiar to her, the easier the transition will be.
I think she approves…and apparently a new pack of Cottonelle is very huggable.
One last thing, I always love coupons so if you are in need, visit Cottonelle’s site for $1.50 off! They also frequently post other deals!
As always, thanks for clicking!
Do you have any potty training tips for me that you wish you knew with your first kiddo? Please share and help me out! 🙂
