Potty training is a big deal and it’s not be taken lightly. I know the whole potty training thing can be very time consuming and frustrating but with the right mindset and help this transition can be a lot smoother.
Over the years it has surprised me that the pull up training pants have added bigger sizes for older children whom possibly aren’t potty trained yet. We all know the simple fact that children are eager to learn and enjoy getting praise from their parents so we have to work this into potty training.
I recently was given the opportunity to review a Baby Signs(R) Potty Training Kit with my 15 and 1/2 month old daughter. This kit is designed to have your toddler potty trained before they are two years old! Any help offered, I’ll take as I know the whole potty thing can be confusing.
Baby Signs combines sign language, engaging animation and rewards to entice your toddler to come aboard the “Potty Train.” In the box is a comprehensive manual explaining the benefits of teaching sign language to young children, a Potty Train DVD, book, reward stickers and a wooden train whistle. The entire system retails for $39.95, which is a steal if you ask me!
I had already been talking about and showing my daughter the toilet and what goes into it before we got this kit. I put the dvd into our player and watched my daughter eagerly as she took everything in from the happy babies to the bright colors and cheerful music. She was pretty excited about the potty train song, she started dancing around and giggling every time it played. Each baby in the dvd went potty and my daughter sat their watching and clapped when the babies clapped on the screen after they went potty.
I’ve only been using this video for two weeks and I know things are going to take time. My daughter took off her diaper the other day, did the sign for “more”, went pee pee on the floor, and then clapped as if she did something good. I’m glad she is grasping the signs but she needs to learn that we clap if we are on the toilet. Hehe. She’ll get there eventually and the rewards will be great!
The Baby Signs(R) Potty Training Kit has definitely got my daughter more interested in the potty and the sooner out of diapers the better! I would recommend this kit to all ready to work with their child to achieving the goal of potty training. I would say that if your child already knows some baby sign language, this kit would be a plus!
