Potty training is amongst the easiest courses that a toddler takes in life. However, it could easily turn out to be the hardest if not done in the right way.
While it’s way too easy for them to use the standalone potties, it takes careful consideration before they can graduate to mommy and daddy’s toilet. Here, the first impression is imperative and dictates how fast they are going to get used to the ‘big toilet’.
Life is difficult. You don’t want to harden it further through lengthy and painstaking potty classes, do you? No! So, how do you make it easier for you and your champ too? Or how do you choose a ladder potty that will make this exercise effortless?
Firstly, make it fun. You do this by purchasing a potty with an inviting and playful design. Choose a trainer with your child’s favorite colors. On this note too, opt for a lightweight unit that they can set up all by themselves. Consequently, they’ll always be willing to always climb thereby doing you a fat favor since they learn fast.
Secondly, it better be safe. Make sure that the whole thing doesn’t wobble all over the place. This may kill their confidence and leave your big toilet for good. As such, it should have non-slip feet and stable handrail. The footrest should also be wide enough for their optimum comfort.
It should also be height adjustable. This will lead to a graduated and hassle-free transition.
