Potty Training Timers
I've been potty training my daughter since she was 18 months old and she's been doing great telling me when she has to use the potty, but she'll only do that when she's with me. How do I get her to do that while I'm at work?
I recommend using an egg timer or a potty watch to remind your little one. Half the challenge of potty training is reminding kids when it's time to go! What's great about a potty watch is that it alerts kids with music and lights and that really gets their attention. You can usually set them at regular 30, 60, or 90-minute intervals. You'll find a few different brands on the market.
