Let’s Talk Potty Training and Bums!

I want to thank Cottonelle for sponsoring today’s post!  As always, my opinions and thoughts are 100% my own.

Our Potty Training Must Haves - #LetsTalkBums

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:

Our Potty Training Supplies and Must Haves
1// Gray Potty Chair 2// Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper 3// Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths 4// A Potty For Me  5//Princess Potty  6// XXL Bag of M&Ms  7// Potty Time with Elmo

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!

Clean Care = two ply, strong and soft at the same time!

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.

    My son is two, but he’s terrified of the potty chair! haha. I agree with you — no need to rush! Your little girl is darling. We’ll definitely be using these cotenelle wipes with him!

    We used the the book ‘Oh Crap – Potty Training’ by Jamie Glowacki. Her methode seemed drastic at first but it’s actually pretty straight forward. We were basically done training within two days 🙂

    Haha! When it came to potty training I was definitely not above bribery either. I’m pretty sure I would have bought my daughter a pony. It definitely wasn’t the most fun time for us but these a great must haves to get through it. We had the A Potty for Me book too. 🙂

    Hi,
    We started with a potty training when my child was one year old, a simple potty that you put on the floor. A success, each morning before breakfast, he just accepted it and done what he had to do 🙂 Now he’s 21 months old and since two weeks he’s on one of those you put on your own toilet, with a step to climb, he can’t be more proud. I was told the key is to start early, and in our case, it’s working! 🙂
