Potty Training Solutions for Girls

potty-training-girlsWe all understand that boys and girls have different plumbing, different attitudes and different needs. There are a number of potty training solutions designed for girls and some that may work better than others. Here are some potty training solutions for girls that will assist your little princess “in training”.

Potty Chairs for Girls
A potty chair is a small potty that sits on the floor. Your daughter can use the potty just like she would use a big toilet. When she is finished doing her business the reservoir can be emptied  into the toilet. The reason potty chairs work better for girls is that they sit to do all of their business. Many parents of little boys have written to us and told us that their son tried to stand at the potty chair and made a big mess. Ginsey Industries make a number of   potty chairs in styles for little girls including: Princesses, Minnie Mouse, Dora The Explorer, Fairies and much more. Potty chairs stand out as a potty training solution for girls that is embraced by moms of nationwide.

Step Stools for Girls
You may find that the best potty training solution for girls isn’t related to the potty at all.  Little girls want to be just like their mom. That means that your daughter may want to sit on the “big girl” potty immediately. A step stool is a great way to help girls to sit on the toilet. Ginsey makes a variety of step stools in colors and themes that are perfectly suited for little girls. Once your daughter is potty trained the stool can be used for brushing teeth and getting into the  bathtub.

Potty Seats for Girls
Ginsey makes a number of potty seats for girls that will assist them in using “big girl” potty.  We have a variety of styles and colors suited to girls. Styles range from air cushioned, padded or rigid models. We even have a number of folding potty seats that are great for travel. Donn’t your little girl fall in. Get her a potty seat from Ginsey.com

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.
