Some bathmats are being offered with a self-adhesive and rough textured surface to provide better grip and adhesion to the tub flooring. If you and your baby share the same bathtub, it’s best to stick to self-adhesive, non-slip type whereas you can opt for a textured surface if only adults will use the tub. This is because the rough texture may not sit well with babies and may irritate their skin.
Potties are available with a variety of themes, lights, songs, and sound effects, but are they worth it? For some, this may increase your child′s interest, especially if your child was the one to pick out the race car flushing noise or the magical wand reward song potty. But it′s certainly not a necessity, says David Hill, M.D., author of Dad to Dad: Parenting Like a Pro. "More than any light show, sticker, or piece of candy, the thing that delights your child the most is your praise. So be prepared to clap your hands, give a big hug, or do a special dance to celebrate your child‵s success, and skip the electronics."
There are two main types of potties: a stand-alone potty and a seat reducer. When looking for a stand-alone potty, consider three important features: safety, size, and simplicity. "The potty chair must be stable, your toddler's bottom must fit comfortably on the seat, and the potty should be simple to use and easy to clean," says Teri Crane, the "Potty Pro" and author of Potty Train Your Child in Just One Day. A stand-alone potty has a number of benefits for your tot. It's kid-size, so your child can get on and off by himself, and during extended periods of trying to go, particularly for number two, your toddler won′t be monopolizing the toilet (this is especially important to consider for one-bathroom households). Plus, keeping the regular toilet free will let you or an older sibling demonstrate bathroom skills at the same time the younger child is potty training.
