(*articles may contain affiliate links*) It’s almost that time – getting the twins to own their big girl status. In the coming weeks, we’ll be potty training with Potette, a 2-in-1 travel potty system. We’re bracing ourselves, but at the same time looking forward to the independence they’ll gain.
What is the Potette?
The Potette Plus is both a travel potty and a trainer seat – giving your ‘lil one a safe, sanitary potty experience. It folds away and makes potty training easy and convenient – especially for moms of multiples!
For travel, you can fold up the seat and put it in the backpack so you can use it in public restrooms or (like we’ve had to) at an emergency pull-off. The legs fold in and it comes with liners and sanitary bags to dispose of the waste.
At home, you can use it with the legs (like a standard potty training seat) or using it as a seat to make your home toilet not so big and scary. Check out this how-to video from the Potette website to see what I’m talking about:
Why It Works
For us, potty training with Potette makes a lot of sense. With two to train, we need something easy and convenient, something we can carry with us and not worry about accidents on the go. The backpack ensures our normal diaper bag won’t get yucky and it even fits on the girls’ back!
The girls enjoy books, so the fact that it comes with “Quest for Cloud Kingdom: A Petey Potette Training Tale” makes our job 10x easier – they’ll be reading how to conquer the task of potty training with a friendly pal. The size is also perfect for our ‘lil ones – our previous potty is too high for them to climb on yet and doesn’t have the dual features of being a stand-alone seat and insert for the “big girl potty”.
Isla is the first of the twins giving us signs of wanting to potty. She was so excited to unwrap the Potette at Christmas, carrying it around for hours. While she has only gone successfully once, she knows when it’s time to go – just needs to do it!
Where to Buy
You can find the Potette Plus (including the backpack, liners, sanity bags, and even the Petey Potette story pack) online and in baby stores nationwide. I recommend picking one up on Amazon so it comes right to your doorstep. You can learn more about the Potette from Kalencolm here.
