Potty Training Solutions for Boys

I have two boys so I feel well qualified to offer potty training solutions for boys. We all know that boys and girls have different plumbing and thus have different needs for potty training. Here are some solutions that I have used quite successfully

Potty Seats vs Potty Chairs
Potty chairs just didn’t cut it for my boys. Boys like to “stand-n-spray” when they pee and a floor potty was just a recipe for disaster. My boys did not want to sit to pee either. Rather than have a floor potty chair for #2 and then take them to the big boy potty for #1 we decided it is just easier (and less disgusting) to use the big boy potty for everything. We did get a lot of use from an Elmo potty seat that fit over the regular toilet.

Step Stools
If you have a boy then you MUST buy a step stool. My boys loved using the stool to go pee-pee in the toilet. It made them feel like big boys and prevented a lot of messes. My oldest son still uses the step stool to brush his teeth.

Potty Training Accessories
I used a couple of potty training accessories with mixed results. We have a potty hook that is intended to hang the potty seat on the toilet tank. Just like everything else in my house, the kids never hung the potty seat back on the hook where it belongs. I eventually started using the potty hook to hang the potty seat on the back of the door where visitors didn’t have to see it. We had great successes with tinkle targets. They are flush-able designs that your boys can pee on. My kids love to aim their pee and this potty training solution helped them keep it in the toilet.

5 Potty Training Tips

Here are 10 great potty training tips from Ginsey Industries:

(1) It is Never Too Early
It really is never too early to introduce your little one to the potty. Even if they are not using the potty, it is good to make them aware of it and why their older brothers and sisters use it.

(2) Reinforcement is Key
Make sure that your little one can use the potty at home, at school, and on the road. It is easy to just opt for a diaper when traveling but Ginsey’s travel potty seats make on the go potty training easy and help reinforce what you are doing at home.

(3) Rewards are Good but not Necessary
Offering a reward tends to work with older children, but younger ones are usually just as excited as you that they are using the potty like a big girl or a big boy. We have a number of parents tell us that buying their child a Ginsey potty seat with their favorite cartoon characters on it was all the reward their child needed to succeed at potty training.

(4) It Doesn’t Always Work
Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you try. Some kids will only become potty trained on their own timetable. In these cases it is often best to simply back off and let your child make the decision to become potty trained on their own. Some children do not respond to pressure but are rather self starters who will accomplish tasks efficiently when those tasks are made their sole responsibility. My wife and I had this issue with our oldest son and we were surprised how quickly he potty trained himself once the choice was his own and not ours.

(5) Use Support Tools
Don’t try to be Supermom or Superdad. There are great potty training tools like tinkle targets, reward stickers, potty chairs, potty seats, travel potty seats and much more at your disposal. Theses tools are all available on the Ginsey.com Website and are all very cost effective. Just think of how much money you will be saving once you get your child out of diapers and on to the potty!

 

 

Bamboo Potty Seats

Bamboo Potty Training Seats offer an eco-friendly way to potty train your youngster. Our bamboo potty seats are made from 100% pesticide-free bamboo. As you most likely know, bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource that helps to save our rain forests from clear cutting. Buying a bamboo potty seat is a very responsible choice for parents to make. It allows your child to lean an important lesson about taking care of our planet at a very early age.

Thomas Potty Seat

Ginsey Insustries has a great Thomas potty seat. Technically, it is a Thomas the Train 3 in 1 potty training chair system. This system includes:

THOMAS FLOOR POTTY
This is a potty chair that starts the potty training process on your child’s level.

DETACHABLE THOMAS POTTY SEAT
This seat detaches from the base and is used on the big toilet. This welcomes your child to adult toilet (standard or elongated seats)

THOMAS STEP STOOL
This stool can be used once your child is ready to stand at the toilet (boys) or just to get on the toilet (girls). It provides a solid base for your child to reach both the potty and the sink.

THOMAS STICKERS
You can reward potty training progress and decorate your Thomas potty!


To commemorate our Thomas potty training seat I wrote a silly Ginsey version of the Thomas theme song:

They’re two they’re four they’re six they’re eight
It doesn’t matter cause they’re potty trained
Tan and green and brown and blue
Whatever the color of their poo

Potty train at home or when away
Our products help a’long the way
A place to seat little rear ends
Ginsey is your friend!

Potty Chairs

Potty Chairs, Potty Seats what the heck is the difference? Well if you read on I will explain the difference to you.

Potty Seats
Potty Seats are a smaller seat that actually fits over an standard adult toilet seat . Potty seats are usually made of hard plastic and can often times feature a cushioned top made of either plastic encased foam or air filled plastic. The purpose of a potty seat is to create a smaller opening for a child to sit on. Most potty seats can be stored by hanging them on a hook or placing them behind the toilet.

We also make a number of travel potty seats that collapse to fit into a diaper bag or medium sized purse.

 

Potty Chairs
Potty Chairs are essentially a small (low to the ground) children’s toilet. The child sits directly on the potty chair and makes #1 or #2. The parent is responsible for emptying the potty char’s reservoir into the actual toilet. If you ask me a potty seat is the way to go, but a potty chair is a nice option for very small potty trainers who can’t reach the big toilet. A few of our potty chairs actually convert to become step stools.
