Potty Training at Home

Listen, the less stuff you add to your home, the better, right? But what about when your three year old suddenly decides that the grown-up sized toilet is absolutely terrifying, thus bringing an abrupt halt to your potty training journey?

You’re gonna need to bring in a few more supplies to keep the ball rolling.

Might we humbly suggest the following few items to make potty training, hand washing, and (let’s be honest) clean up a little easier.

Potty Training on the Go

You’re gonna have to leave the house sometime, and if you’re not properly prepared- well, it might not be pretty. A few simple tools can make a BIG difference in how your first outings with a potty trained-ish kid go.

Check out these genius tools to toss into your potty training diaper bag. From a toilet seat that folds up to little bags to contain messes, these are the tools you’ll either buy now, or wish you had bought when your first on-the-go mess occurs.
