Most of you know we potty trained Haiden shortly after he started showing signs of potty training readiness. It was so hard to make the leap out of diapers because we just kept asking the question, “when will I know he's ready to be potty trained?” I finally figured that I just wouldn't know unless we tried, so we just went for it.
Thankfully, Haiden has been easy to potty train. There are some ups and downs, but, overall, it took about a week to have him completely potty trained during the day. We're still working on naps and nights, but I'm not going to worry about that right now (I'm all about the baby steps when it comes to potty training readiness).
One of the potty training challenges we experienced was dealing with dirty wipes and no diaper to wrap them up in. I've heard time and time again that regular baby and diaper wipes absolutely cannot be flushed down the toilet, and I know two families who experienced plumbing nightmares because they didn't think flushing those regular wipes would cause problems. Most little ones are used to a very fresh bottom after using the bathroom because of how clean we get them after changing their diapers. Once we ruled out using regular baby wipes, I remembered that we could buy flushable wipes to use during potty training.
Cottonelle makes a great flushable wipe and you can even get an “EasyReach” hanger to position the box of wipes next to the roll of toilet paper! This makes it very convenient to have the wipes exactly where you need them. I love the idea of the EasyReach hanger so much, I wish they would make one for regular baby wipes! We're the family that has a pack of wipes in multiple rooms so they're within arms reach whenever we need to change Piper. Having the boxes in a fixed position would help minimize the number of open packs we have at any given time!
Cottonelle's Flushable Moist Wipes certainly make potty training a bit easier for our family, and I think the EasyReach hanger would help anyone who uses these wipes!
