I swear I am at the end of my rope. Why is it so hard to get a tiny kid to go potty? We have tried stickers, potty watches, and cloth diapers. Finally, just today – mark it down in history! My kid went potty in the potty chair 5 times! FIVE – and all because he could flush it himself. Sometimes all it takes is choosing the right potty chair.
Choosing The Right Potty Chair
One of the most important facets of potty training is choosing the right potty chair. I received the Sesame Street – Elmo Adventure Potty Chair ($29.99). This brightly colored potty chair looks like a miniature toilet, so your toddler will think they are using a big potty like mommy and daddy! This potty chair has some great features like a flush handle that has flushing sounds as well as words of encouragement from Elmo, a seat adapter when transition from the potty chair to a toilet, an easy to remove and clean waste cup and a cool 3D aquarium label in the tank. If you are potty training a little girl, the Abby Cadabby Magical Potty Chair ($29.99) is perfect. With the sweet purple and pink colors and the adorable 3D picture of Abby, your little girl is sure to love this potty chair just for her.
When looking for the perfect potty chair for Mason, I knew I wanted to choose one that would attract his attention and make him want to use it. I also knew I wanted to find a product that came from a company that is known and trusted for their outstanding products. For me, that company is Kolcraft, who has been designing and manufacturing quality baby products since 1946. Along with the products from Kolcraft, you can also find quality products from such companies as Jeep, Contour, Sesame Street, Sealy and Stearns and Foster. Kolcraft sells a wide array of products for your baby including baby carriers, crib mattress and pads, strollers, activity toys and potty chairs. You can also find maternity and nursing pillows for mom. For the people at Kolcraft, when you buy one of their products, their relationship with you doesn’t stop there. On the Kolcraft website, you can find parenting advice, buying guides and parenting articles. Kolcraft even has a blog with a ton of great information like recipes, crafts for your older kids and even contests to win Kolcraft products! Since 1985, Kolcraft has been involved with K.I.D.S. (Kids In Distressed Situations) by donating new products to over 65 million kids in need.
