A very important step in beginning to potty train is pulling out the equipment. Place a potty chair in the bathroom or even the living room. Encourage your child to sit on the potty chair — with or without a diaper. I know when we first got a potty chair, Kolt was almost scared of it. He didn’t know what to think. We took our time and just helped him to get used to sitting on the potty chair and eventually getting on and off all by himself. Make sure your child’s feet rest firmly on the floor or a stool.
Help your child understand how to talk about the bathroom using simple, correct terms. You might dump the contents of a dirty diaper into the potty chair to show its purpose, or let your child see family members using the toilet. I always take Kolt to the bathroom with me. I tell him what I’m doing and how pee and poop go in the potty. My dad has been great and even takes Kolt to the bathroom with him, so he can see what boys do.

Colorful Bumbledoo Training Pants, allow your child to feel wetness AND help Mommy and Daddy keep the mess contained. Plus, they offer the breathable, tailored look and feel of big-kid underwear so your child will know they are not in a diaper. Bumbledoo Training Pants are hand-made with 6 carefully planned layers, which include a leak proof outside, an absorbent middle, and a soft inside that pulls heavy moisture away from your child’s skin – but still allows a feel of some wetness for training. These trainers are soft on the skin yet sturdy in the washing machine and maintain their color, shape, and texture. This is one of the more absorbent trainers I have reviewed. With other trainers I can easily tell when Kolt is wet, but it is harder to tell with this trainer. It makes me wonder how easy it is for him to really tell he is wet.
April has generously offered up the change for one of my fabulous readers to win a Bumbledoo Trainer! Please use the following Rafflecopter form to enter.
