5 Tips for Potty Training On-The-GoJune 25, 2016
Some people believe that potty training must take place in the house- that it’s impossible to successfully potty train a toddler while on-the-go. I’m here to tell you that with the right tools & products, it’s totally possible to potty train on-the-go. I successfully potty trained two children, and we weren’t at home all day. Instead, we spent a lot of time out and about, and I’m excited to share with you some tips to successfully potty training your toddler on-the-go. From using Cottonelle® FreshCare® Flushable Cleansing Cloths to knowing the locations of nearby bathrooms, keep reading for some useful tips on potty training on-the-go.
Tips for Potty Training On-The-Go
1. Know the bathroom locations:
Whenever you get to a new destination (mall, park, etc.), make sure you know the location of the nearest restroom. When nature calls for your potty training toddler, you want to be able to quickly whisk her away to the restroom.
2. Bring a portable potty seat:
A portable potty seat is a convenient product for letting your toddler use the toilet at public restrooms. It folds up flat and lets baby sit on the toilet without fear of falling into the toilet. We had a portable potty seat for both kids and I always kept it with me for restroom visits with the kids.
3. Have child use the potty before leaving the house:
During the early potty training days, it’s imperative that children use the toilet before leaving the house. You don’t want to find yourself in the car with a toddler who urgently needs to use the bathroom, especially when you just left home 5 minutes ago. It’s definitely a routine in our house- the kids must go to the potty before we leave!
4. Bring a change of clothing:
Potty training can be a messy experience. Accidents happen! Bring along a change of clothing so you’re prepared in case baby soils her outfit! I actually brought along a change of clothing for my toddler for a few months after she was potty trained – just in case! It’s always best to be over-prepared.
5. Use Cottonelle® FreshCare® Flushable Cleansing Cloths:
Another must-have item for any mom of a potty training toddler is Cottonelle® FreshCare® Flushable Cleansing Cloths. Featuring SafeFlush Technology™, Cottonelle® FreshCare® Flushable Cleansing Cloths start to break down immediately upon flushing the toilet. I love that these wipes are safe for sewer and septic systems.
