As a mom and daycare provider I can honestly say that potty training is one of the hardest tasks to accomplish. Often times parents feel pressure from other parents to potty train their child as quickly as possible. As a daycare provider and mom of 3 little girls, I am here to tell you that every child is different and will most likely decide to potty train on their watch, however when your child is ready to be potty trained there is an endless amount of resources that can provide you with tips on how to begin. When you decide to begin potty training your child it is important to make sure that your bathroom is ready. Since I have a lot of experience with potty training kids of all ages, I wanted to share with you some tips on getting your bathroom potty training ready.

Is Your Bathroom Potty Training Ready

One way to help alleviate the stress of potty training your child is to make sure that your bathrooms, especially your main bathroom is potty training ready. This basically means that you have the necessary essentials in your bathroom so that you don’t find yourself running around the house gathering certain items when your child needs you the most. When I get ready to potty train I like to stop at Walmart and pick up some essentials such as cleaning products, special toiletries and Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Bath Tissue found in the toilet paper aisle. I always make sure to purchase the biggest pack because kids seem to really like toilet paper and they don’t know how to control how much they use.

The entire process of potty training a child can be stressful but there are some ways that you can help alleviate the stress and make it easier for you and your child. Here is a list that I have compiled of bathroom necessities so that you can make sure that your bathroom is potty training ready.

  • Potty Seat Cover: Since kid’s bottoms are small and toilet seat openings are big you want to make sure that you have a potty seat cover so your child does not feel like they are going to fall in. That can cause a lot of trauma and can make future potty training moments very dramatic.
  • Extra Clothes and Undies: When a child is being potty trained accidents are guaranteed to happen. I always like to be prepared and have a few extra pairs of pants and undies ready for a quick wardrobe change when necessary.
  • Cleaner and Paper Towels: While kids are learning how to go in the potty, sometimes they accidentally spill outside of the potty or just go on the floor. It’s very convenient to have paper towels and floor cleaner readily available for moments like this. Just make sure to have locks on your bathroom cabinet for safety purposes.
  • Stock up on Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Bath Tissue: I saved the most important tip for last. For anyone that has potty trained or is currently potty training, you know that kids love toilet paper and do not know what it means to use only a little. I love to stock up on Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Bath Tissue for this very reason. When I potty train kids I am amazed at how much tissue they use and since we have a septic system I am thankful that Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Bath Tissue is sewer and septic safe. When you are potty training a child it is important to choose a toilet paper such as Quilted Northern® because it is Strong + Flexible but is also known for its softness and strength. Quilted Northern® has been providing families with quality and comfort since 1902 so with that said, you know it has to be good.
