Potty training has begun at our house. It is amazing how much more relaxed I am about potty training the second time around. I learned the hard way with my oldest daughter not to force the issue. They will potty train when they are ready. Zoë potty trained in less than a week once she decided she wanted to wear big girl p.a.n.t.i.e.s.

There is no rush around here, but I have found some wonderful products that have made the process much easier.

I have gone into the bathroom and found bubbles stuck to the towels the next day. Blowing bubbles is a great way to keep kiddos on the potty until they do their business.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider my children potty trained until they can use the bathroom solo. This seat allows them to get on the toilet by themselves.

The quiet close feature also keeps little boy’s “business” from getting slammed in a closing lid. (I only have little ladies at home, but I hear this can be a problem. Ouch!) I just ordered a few of these for our house. Never thought I’d be excited about a toilet seat but I am!

The Princess Potty Book. What is better than blowing bubbles while sitting on the potty? Blowing bubbles while wearing a tiara. Yes, indeed. This book comes with a tiara and sticker jewels that you get to attach after you go tinkle on the potty.

Potty training is moving right along, but sometimes my little ladies need a gentle reminder to flush. ICK! I created this sign for their bathroom to gently encourage them to flush. I’m telling you, Princess Potty is rubbing off on me.

I thought you might like to purty up your bathroom as well so I created this 5×7 printable in 4 colors.

Happy Potty Training! Good Luck!

    These are so cute, Maegan! You might want to consider some more primary colored ones or deep jewel tones for the little men who are potty training 🙂 Pastel blue and green are still too girly for this family! LOL

    Sure, why not? YOu know how men want to be the kings of their castle, and what room is more of a man’s castle than the bathroom? LOL They need a throne to flush, too!

    I think boys would call it a throne, too. Kings and princes sit on thrones just like queens and princesses. It all depends on who you ask because when I asked my boys who sits on a throne, one said ‘a king’ and the other said ‘me’.
