Potties And Toilet Training

oilet training is something many parents dread. When's the right time to start? How do I deal with problems? What many parents forget is that successful potty training starts with getting the right products.

It's all too easy for the cynical to say that a simple potty is all that's needed. There's actually some very deep psychological things happening when a child moves from wearing nappies. The attitude a parent takes is crucial but to discuss that is beyond our remit here. What we do know is that a child needs to feel safe and comfortable when sitting on the potty – ie the potty has to be stable and the right shape – not all little behinds are the same!!!

Getting through the night can also be a problem. No one likes having to change a wet bed in the middle of the night and a wet mattress needs more than simply drying out. Parents hate thinking about problems; offer a solution first.

Then mother has the problem of how does she cope when out and about. When the child needs to go, he needs the potty NOWWWWWWWWW! Again there are products to help.

Eventually, there comes the time when mum wants to dispense with the hassle of a potty. Falling down into the depths of the toilet pan is a very real fear for many children – they all need a suitable training seat to feel confident.

The other product needed at this time are training pants – absorbant enough to contain accidents but easy to pull down when needed.

All this comes when children are around 18 months old – which often co-incides with the second pregnancy. Worth mentioning the word potty when Mum comes in with a toddler still in nappies.

As always, it's thinking about what else you can sell that makes the difference!!!

Potty training from Charlie Banana®

Charlie Banana® 2in1 Swim Diaper and Training Pants with Snaps are currently one of the Best Potty Training Products according to Mother and Baby Awards 2017 (Finalist) and 2016 (Gold Award).

These pants will catch any little accident and make your child more confident, while entering the potty training stage. They have an Organic Cotton interior lining and a soft waterproof outer layer. The absorbent pad sewn in the centre of the pants is perfect for little accidents when potty training.

Charlie Banana® has recently released the Reusable Easy Snaps Swim Diaper, which can also be used for potty training due to its waterproof layer and one ultra soft and absorbent TENCEL® fabric layer. Lenzing TENCEL® is highly absorbent, restricts growth of bacteria and is the greenest celluloid material currently produced.

Both these pants have snaps, which allow for easier snap-on/snap-off mess free handling for parents.

The wide and soft waist and leg elastics make these pants gentle on a child's waist and legs and provide the necessary stretch to allow the child the independence needed to pull the training pants on and off.

At the same time they can also be also used as a reusable swim nappy. These pants come with snaps and with no snaps. For more information see our website:

​Note: this is not our regular nappy - it is designed to contain solid waste and can only absorb small pee accidents.

Confident training with Summer Infant

Children are naturally drawn to role-playing; it helps them reach their developmental milestones, as it’s a safe way for them to gain confidence while safely exploring the adult world.

And that’s where the inspiration for the new Summer Infant My Size Potty came from; which has been designed to have the look and feel of an adult toilet, promoting confidence in children as they potty train and transition to the real thing.

The My Size Potty has been cleverly and thoughtfully designed to include realistic features, including the toilet handle with flushing sounds to encourage kids throughout the process. It also comes with a clip-on splashguard that is helpful when training boys, and the built-in wipe dispenser is perfect for teaching good hygiene. With parents in mind, there is a removable bowl to make cleanup simple and easy.

The My Size Potty is recommended for ages 18 months to 5 years, with a suggested retail price of £34.99.
