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.

Potty Training Failures

Every parent has had some potty training failures along with the potty training successes. It usually doesn’t mean anything in terms of your child’s ability to be potty trained. Let me give you a few examples of potty training failures from my own experiences and those of my friends and colleagues.

Potty Training Regression
This is arguably the most biggest frustration during potty training. Many children regress to going in their pants after they seem to be potty trained. My pediatrician told me that our son was likely doing this because of recent addition of his new baby brother. This is a way for a child to try to gain more of your attention. Show your child extra attention and tie it to potty training. You could offer to do something special with him/her IF they can go all day without going in their pants.

Sudden Increase in Accidents
You child may seem to be doing fine with potty training and then seems to have an increase in accidents. This WILL happen. You child may be potty trained but now lacks the sense of urgency conveyed when you were actively trying to get them to this point. Just keep asking your child if they need to go potty every hour or so. This will put it back in the forefront of his/her mind.

Going Potty (but not in the potty)
If you have little boys this is all to common. They believe that the world is their own personal toilet. My son decided to make it his job to tinkle everywhere but the toilet at one point. He urinated in his room, in the tub and outside (to my horror) with all of the neighbors watching. This is really just a phase. Your child understands that going in their pants is no longer acceptable but has yet to understand that pee-pee and poo-poo belong ONLY in the toilet. Consider this a potty training success rather than a potty training failure.

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!

 

 

Using Potty Seats in Public

The Travel Potty Seat

There has recently been a lot of news about a mom in Utah who allowed her toddler to use a potty seat while sitting in a restaurant. We at Ginsey find this to be an improper use of a great product. Potty training is a very difficult step for most parents. Little ones usually do not have the ability to “hold-it”. That is probably why the mom in Utah took her potty training seat to the restaurant in the first place. This was a bold and kinda gross thing to do. We wish we know the name of the mom who did this so we could show her a great alternative to letting your toddler go #2 at the dinner table.

Ginsey makes a number of travel potty seats. These travel potty seats fold into a very compact unit that feats neatly and most importantly discreetly into your purse, diaper bag, or pocket. If the potty training mom in Utah has one of our travel seats she could easily have taken her child to the restroom, unfolded the travel seat and allowed her child to make #2 in a sanitary and private way.

Take our advise and use a travel potty seat from Ginsey Industries…and keep #2 something that is reserved for the bathroom only!
