Getting ready to potty train? We're starting to think about that here at Super Cool Baby Headquarters. Luckily our friends over at Huggies were kind enough to send us a potty training kit to help us out. It includes "Potty Training Success DVD", a set of rewards stickers, a small purple car, and a pack of Huggies Pull-Ups Cool Alert diapers.
The DVD is a really useful primer on potty training. In "Starting Out", the DVD covers what to have when you start potty training, and covers the signs of readiness. Even if it is a bit of an advertisement for Huggies Pull-Ups, it still contains lots of useful advice about what to do when you're just starting out with your potty training. In "At Home" and "Away From Home" we learn about starting and establishing new routines at home, and when you're out. The DVD covers things like rewards, an Open Door Policy, keeping a consistent routine, and so on. The DVD includes some extras including 2 games, 3 songs, and 4 printable coloring pages. This DVD contains lots of useful advice for any parents who are thinking about starting to potty train. I definitely learned a lot from watching it myself!
If you'd like to win one of these kits, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here on this post. We'll pick one winner next monday from all our entrants.

A big story recently that I've seen all over the place involves parents who potty train their children from birth. I haven't been paying too close attention to this and what people are thinking about it, but I did hear a lot of disgust about one parent allowing their child to use a sink as a toilet. Talk about unsanitary for everyone else! If you are potty training your child of any age and need to leave the house or be away from a toilet for a long period of time, the Caboose Travel Potty is definitely one to consider, assuming you aren't against diapers. This potty has a place for you to secure a diaper inside so that when your child is done, you simply take the diaper out and wrap it up as you normally do. It seems really easy to use, would require little clean up, and would be easy to keep in the car. Watch a 10 second video on their website to see how easy it is to use. And let us know how it works if you do buy it, we think it'd be great for any family with a toddler.

There are probably hundreds of products designed to make potty training easier, but the Peter Potty is definitely one of the more unique products. Designed for boys, of course, the Peter Potty is a stand-up urinal for toddlers. It can be mounted on the wall, or on a stand on the floor. After your little guy is done, he can even hit the button to flush. You'll have to occasionally empty out the catch basin, and refill the flush water. If you want to get a better sense of how it works, check out this video.

It seems like its so far away, but I think potty training will be here at Super Cool Baby before we know it. It's important to us that we have a potty for Anderson that we won't mind seeing all over our house. The BabyBjorn potty may be just what we're looking for. This potty has a nice ergonomic design, with a high back and a splash guard to make sure everything stays in the right place. And a rubberized bottom makes sure that it doesn't go wandering off at the worst possible time. And the inner bowl is easily removed for emptying and cleaning. And most importantly, other parents seem to love this potty. You can't go wrong when so many other people are passionate about products like this. So, when its time, the BabyBjorn potty is sure to be gracing the floors of our bathroom, and I hope it does the same for you.
