Potty Train Part II: Buy the right equipments!

Since my last entry about potty training, I havent make any progress actually..
It just that Adam started showing his readiness towards free diapering..
And plus with Mommy Nadine pun dah start nak potty train Faaz..
* best dah ada geng..semangat sket!
Adam pun dah start to tell us everytime dia "koo koo" (words for poo poo)..
Few incidents when he woke up at night telling that he has pooped inside the diaper..
and last week he woke us and told papa that he koo koo..
Bangunlah my hubby checked diaper Adam ..tk de pun..
After changed him to new diaper, he keep telling us koo koo..
Lepas tu suddenly dia turun katil and squating..
Few minutes Adam came back to us and show his bum bum..
and yeap his just pooped in his diaper..
Penat lah kena bangkit tukar plak!

But yet, Adam pun ada sometimes gv false alarm..
"mommy..koo koo.."
masuk2 bathroom..main air rupanya..2x already mommy kena!

Bnyk benefits sebenarnye bila anak kita dah free diapering..
Mostly bolehlah save duit beli diapers..
Tiap2 ari tengok bnyk sgt pakai diapers..its not really good for the environment!
* poyo plak tiba2 citer psl environment...but its true kan!
But before that, we have to ensure his readiness, kalau tak susah jgak!
Plus nak kena prepare equipments jgak bila nak potty train ni..

I got a good article from babycentre, as a steps towards potty train!
Info about the equipments for potty train..
Jom tgk ;)

BUY A RIGHT EQUIPMENTS

Potties

Potty is, as the name suggests, a pot-like object for your child to use instead of his nappy or the toilet. It is an intermediary step. Most children use a potty for a few weeks or months before moving to an adult toilet. Potties are small at approximately one foot high, and are placed on the floor. It is a good idea to buy a potty and put it in to your bathroom before your toddler is actually ready to begin potty training. This lets him get used to the sight and idea of the potty.



Pros 

- Potty is easy for toddler to hop onto himself. This may vaulable seconds and help to avoid accidents
- This potty is portable. You can move it from room to room in your house, park it in front of the
television or even can take it with you if you are away from hone. This means that it is possible to maintain your toddler potty training routine.
- Potties come in many different colors, Some have even the pictures on them. letting your chil choose his own potty will help the whole process more fun

Cons

• The potty can easily be knocked over.
• Cleaning the potty is not a pleasant job, and not as simple as flushing the toilet.
 

• The potty is smaller than a toilet, which makes it much less daunting for your child. 



Potty from mothercare..
*muat ke bum bum Adam ni??


   
the bjorn!


  
Potty chairs


Potty chairs are bigger than regular potties. They have a sturdy base with a removable potty part for easy cleaning.


Pros
• Potty chairs are more stable than regular potties so your child will feel more secure sitting on it.
• A potty chair doesn't require your child to squat as he would with a regular potty so he may find it more comfortable.
• Potty chairs are particularly good for larger toddlers.


Cons 
• Potty chairs are bulky and take up more space than a regular potty.
• Potty chairs are not portable, so you will still need a potty to use when you are not at home.





yg ni mcm besar sket..



But design ni cantik jgak!



Pull-up pants

Pull-up pants look like normal underwear but are made from the same material as nappies. How absorbent they are depends on the brand you buy.

Pros
• Pull-up pants allow your toddler to feel like a grown up. He can prepare himself to use the loo by pulling his pants down, and can pull them back up himself when he's finished.
• If your toddler does have any accidents during this potty training phase, the pull-up pants can absorb them and then easily be thrown away, just like disposable nappies.
• Pull-up pants can act as an intermediate step, as your toddler works up to normal underwear.
• Even when your child is in pants during the day, absorbent pull-ups can be useful at night so your child doesn't feel like he is being made to wear "babyish" nappies.

Cons
• Using pull-up pants may slow down the training process. Once they are on they will feel like a nappy so your child may forget he is supposed to be using the potty. Some parents prefer to put their toddler in normal underwear straight away and be done with it.
• Some brands of pull-up pants are only designed to cope with small accidents. This means that many are not suitable for your toddler to wear at night.

* Awal2 nak starts, boleh lah ajar pakai pull up pants dulu..



Trainer pants

Trainer pants are washable cotton pants with a waterproof outer layer. They are used as a stepping stone between nappies and real pants.


Pros
• Trainer pants allow your child to feel when he is wet while offering some protection against accidents.
• Unlike pull-up pants, trainer pants do not feel like a nappy, so will help your child to remember about using his potty.

Cons
• Trainer pants offer only limited protection against accidents. If your child's bladder is full you will still end up with a puddle on the floor.
• Trainer pants do not have the same "big boy" or "big girl" appeal of real pants.

Toilet step stools

A toilet step stool is basically a platform that your toddler can step on to so that he can reach the toilet alone.

Pros
• The step stool will enable your toddler to reach the toilet on his own. This will save time and help your child to feel much more grown up and capable.
• The step stool can double up as a way for your toddler to reach other things, such as the sink.

Cons
• If your bathroom is small you may find it a nuisance when you wish to use the loo.
• The step stool is bulky and not particularly portable, so you probably won't take it with you when you go out. This may confuse your toddler, as you'll seem willing to help him with the toilet when you're out but not so keen when you are at home.





Bila dah besar sket..Adam age 3-4 yrs..br boleh starts teach to use this..
with the training seat!


Training seats

A training seat is a small toilet seat that fits on top of your regular toilet seat. It can be padded to make it more comfortable for your child. Some are lifted on and off when your child is using the toilet, others are attached to a full-sized seat with a hinge.

Pros
 • The training seat means you can miss out on the potty stage. Your toddler can advance directly from using nappies to the toilet.
• A training seat that lifts off is portable. You can easily take it with you wherever you go.
• With a training seat, your child's waste goes straight into the toilet so all you need to do is flush.
• Training seats can be bought in a variety of colours and styles to make the whole process more fun. Allowing your child to choose which training seat he likes best will help him to feel more in control, and encourage him to not only use it, but want to use it.
• Training seats that have a splashguard at the front are especially useful for boys when they are sitting down to wee.

Cons
• The training seat can only be used in one room, the bathroom. This means that your toddler may find it difficult to reach the toilet in time, and climb onto it before an accident occurs.
• Some designs are a bit wobbly, and some really are no more comfortable than sitting on the proper seat.
• As well as the training seat, you will also need to get a step stool to allow your toddler to reach the loo alone. Even with a step stool your toddler's legs may still dangle over the side of the loo. This may make your child feel slightly unstable and less confident.




Good things about bjorn..all the potty stuffs semuanye BPA free...
* tp kan nak letak kat bumbum je kan...ape kesah!


Books

There are lots of story books available about learning to use a potty. Reading them with your toddler might help explain potty training in a fun and exciting way. Here are a few book suggestions from BabyCentre:

me pun tgh jitters psl potty train nih.tiap ari dok terfikir2.tapi xstart2 jugak ;p

my adam tu kalu poopoo memang nak poopoo kat dalam bilik air.dah takmau poopoo dalam diaper.maybe sebab stool dia dah byk kot skang. masalahnya dia takmau duduk time poopoo tuh. sambil berdiri la jawabnya. puas suruh dia duduk tapi dia taknak. takut tercicah kot. thehehe...

bila entah nak start. me myself sendiri pun rasa macam tak ready.tapi sampai bila kan... hayo!

MOMMAHOLICSURI said...

waaaaa.... another informative notes :)

Hmm.. Now Oman mesti akan squad when he pooped in his diaper. Masa wash wash pun dia squad sendiri. Nuurill x pernah ajar. Maybe he learned it from Day Care. Adakah itu tanda Oman dah ready? :)

Oh Oh.. happynyer kalau Nadia dah boleh jimatkan diaper. Haha..Adam pun ada false alarm ek. Macam nak bersalin la pulak ha.. hahahha

MOMMY NADIA said...

Teh,
Adam has started to show his readiness..cuba try beli training seat..sb dia dah besar n tinggi..
shud starts now..jimat kos!
Lagipun teh all day with him, the learning will be easier!

happy potty too!

***
Nuurill,
tq dear..just share somethings I grabbed from bbcentre aje ;)
at least bila he start to squat, kita boleh bawak masuk toilet cepat2 kan..
I think tak lama lagi mesti Oman will start to inform u once he need to pass motion.
Adam pun tak boleh inform lagi bila dia pee,maybe sb bila pooped, the stool make him uncomfrtble..

Meantime bolehla kita intro with potty stuffs..
I read from one of bloggermommy, she started the potty by buying all the stuffs first, intro to her kids, few months later dia dah boleh starts wit routine!

false alarm bila masuk2 takde poop pun..sj nak main ngan waterhose tu..tensi!!

MOMMAHOLICSURI said...

alamak baru perasan.. squat.. bukan squad.. muaahahahahahaha

Nadine said...

i LOVE this entry so much, and u know why is that..

tak sabarnya nak potty train faaz!! :)

u know nadia, I pun minat fisher price punye potty jugak. tp bkn yg you desired tu. i minat sgt fisher price: my potty buddy cuz it resembles the real toilet but still look cute! tp I blum ade budget utk itu...so in the meantime probably I'll get the cheaper one first.
