Celebrity Parents 8 Essentials for Potty Training Success From a kid-size seat cover to the Everyone Poops book, mom blogger Chelsea P. Gladden shares the must-have products that'll end diaper duty By Shanelle Rein-olowokere Published on February 26, 2013 06:00 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Trending Videos 01 of 09 THE POTTY MOVIE & BOOK When you're ready to give potty training a go, The Potty Movie and The Potty Book are great ways to introduce the process to your toddler. Available in both boy and girl versions, they help give your little ones some insight before it's their turn to take the plunge. 02 of 09 TODDLER UNDERWEAR Getty Another way to get them excited about the process is to let them pick out their very own underwear, especially if they can choose a pair covered with their favorite characters. 03 of 09 A POTTY Getty A large toilet can be intimidating at first, so giving your child a pint-size version to start with will help ease any potential fears. Once your child becomes a true pro, you'll still be able to use the potty: Most beginner versions turn into cool bathroom stepping stools. If you're traveling, try My Carry Potty, which makes bathroom runs easier on the go. 04 of 09 TRAINER SEAT Getty Making the transition to the grownup toilet is much easier with a kid-friendly seat cover that prevents tiny bums from falling in. An added bonus? Nothing to empty out! 05 of 09 FLUSHABLE WIPES Getty Since the post-diaper adjustment can be a messy situation (regular toilet paper doesn't always cut it), having wet napkins handy is key. Not only do they keep your tot clean, but they're fine to flush after cleanup. 06 of 09 STEPPING STOOL Once they've finished the potty part, it's time to wash those hands. But little legs don't quite reach the sink, and holding your growing girls and boys over the basin while trying to soap them up is a tricky affair. Try a stool with a non-slip rubber surface, like this cool one from BabyBjorn. Stepping up solo make toddlers feel more independent, too. 07 of 09 CHANGE OF CLOTHES Getty Since accidents are bound to happen as your tot adjusts to a diaper-less life, remember to pack an extra outfit and undies when you're out and about. 08 of 09 EVERYONE POOPS Have a child that's still feeling a little apprehensive? Get this classic book, which will remind him that he's not the only one in need of relief. 09 of 09 CHELSEA P. GLADDEN Courtesy Chelsea P. Gladden In addition to raising five kids (including one set of twins!) and running two family-focused blogs (BreezyMama.com and ForKidsEntertainment.com), Gladden has spent plenty of time doing diaper and potty training duty. Thankfully, she's all done.
