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!

Different Types of Potty Seats

There are a few things to consider when selecting kids potty seats because there are many types of potty seats available. I will briefly outline my experiences with various potty seats and let you draw you own conclusions.

When we were potty training my son Colin, we tried a number of different potty seats out. Naturally potty seats are easy test out when you work for Ginsey. My son is pretty big for his age so we encountered some interesting obstacles when he was being potty trained.

Potty Chairs
In case you don’t know a potty chair is a little seat about the height of a step stool. Your child makes #1 or #2 in the potty and then you dump it out. My wife was opposed to this form of potty training because she didn’t like the idea of cleaning up poop from yet another surface. I understand that but some of my friends, especially those with petite little girls have had great success with a potty chair.

Foam Cushioned Potty Seats
We tried this style out and it seemed to work really well for making #2. My son is a big kid so the built in “splash guard” didn’t work very well because he just peed over top of it and made a mess. I don’t think this would be an issue with a smaller kid who sits deeper in the seat. We used the foam cushioned seat for #2 and we uses the Sesame Street step stool for making #1 and it worked well…Until he relapsed!

Air Cushioned Potty Seats
Well our son relapsed a bit and wet back to going in his pants. He said he didn’t like his potty seat and that it hurt. That is when we pulled out the Elmo Air Cushioned Potty Seat. This seat was perfect for his larger size. He found it very comfortable and like all kids he loves Elmo. The air cushioned seat allows a bigger kid a bit more “hiney room” and really lets them “sink in” to do their business. Thanks to the Elmo potty seat and a Sesame Street step stool my son is fully potty trained today.
