It can be difficult to begin with when you start Potty Training. By using books, you can help your little one to understand what the heck is going on. I noticed quite an impressive range of guides on 'how to' but what about for the tots themselves? Amazon have a fair few books aimed at toddlers that are at the stage of coming out of nappies.Click here to read more...
This clever training toilet is a potty and a toddler seat all in one, and is down to only £4.99 with free delivery at the Tippitoes Ebay Shop. The best price elsewhere for these is around £12 + delivery, and they are nearly £17 on Amazon, so this is one time when buying direct is definitely the best option!
You can use this a a regular potty when beginning toilet training, and it has a removable insert for easy emptying and cleaning, and a handle for easy carrying. When toilet training has moved on to the big toilet then this can be used as a sturdy toddler seat by removing the potty insert and attaching the lid. It also has anti slip feet to prevent movement when in use either as a potty or a toilet.
There are three colours available at this price - blue, pink, and white with a grey lid, and all come with free standard delivery included in the £4.99 price. This looks like a great price for the multi use potty that you are getting, and the reviews look good too. I'll be getting one of these as it will soon be time to start tackling the dreaded toilet training in this house.

Is this really cute or totally tacky? Whatever I think, my 2 year old thinks its awesome, and she wants one to turn our toilet into an Olaf toilet. I'm not sure what Olaf would think about that, either! These Olaf 'Let it go' stickers are £2.98 at eBay, or there's an Olaf image only option for £2.95, also delivered.

Okay, I'm sure you won't find these stickers in the bathroom of your top hotels, but it's pretty cute if it encourages little ones to enjoy going to the toilet. Let's face it, most of us will take any help we can get it when it comes to potty training!
These 20cm stickers will stick to a clean toilet seat, and can be wiped over when you're cleaning your toilet too.
And for under £3 delivered, it's a bit of fun for the kids anyway. I can just imagine my daughter's face if she lifted the toilet seat to see Olaf there!
Are you contemplating potty or toilet training your little one? I am sure you are fully aware that it's not a case on stick pants on them and showing them the toilet. There can be quite a few whoopsies! I know that pull-ups were a big no no for my kids and my health visitor was dead against them, as kids can differentiate between a nappy with side fastenings and a nappy that pulls up and down. They will use it like a nappy. Dry Like Me Toilet Training Pads are just £4 for four packs of 18, a total of 72 pads. Considering these normally sell for around the £10 mark. I'd say that's a bargain.
These Dry Like Me Toilet Training Pads are a really clever idea. You use little briefs or pants on your little one and these pads just slot into the gusset to protect from any accidents. You can use one or two, depending on the severity of then incontinence.
If your child has just recently been potty trained or has the odd accident and attends school or nursery then these can be used with normal pants so that the child isn't in a nappy.
Don't worry about these looking like a sanitary towel...they don't! They are triangular shape and are very absorbant. They must be changed as soon as an accident has happened.
The reviews for these on Amazon are great, and it's been rated four star. These are an add-on item, so you must either add them on to your order or why not buy three sets of them for £12 delivered.
Asda are offering their Little Angels Potties for 98p. There's free click and collect to any Asda store, or £2.95 for home delivery.
Potty training in our house has just not gone well. We had a nappy free week around Easter, when Her Toddlerness decided no, this wasn't for her. She'd finished the stickers and liked the wall chart, and was quite happy to go back into nappies. We've not had a successful day out of nappies since. We've tried everything in the book, and had all the advice we can stomach, so now we've decided to just leave her be and hope she's out of nappies by the time she goes to school!
If you don't have the same issues, and think you're ready for the next big leap, this potty won't set you back much. And will save you a fortune in nappies if your little one is in fact, ready.
The age range for this one is apparently 12 months and up. It suits both boys and girls and comes in pearly white. It is safe and sturdy for up to 40kg and has an easy grip handle and a comfortable back hold shape. They say it's non-threatening, which I can only imagine means it doesn't sing and dance and scare the proverbial **** out of little ones!

My child makes me sound like one of those parents I used to roll my eyes at. I’m pretty certain other people roll their eyes at me. I’m okay with that. My child is that awesome. She came out the womb holding her head up. She started crawling at four months and walking at eight. She was talking by 15 months and at 27 months holds full conversations with full sentences, inferences and uses adjectives and adverbs correctly. The child is a genius. Who refuses to use a potty or toilet.

There's often a bit of a debate as to whether it is a good idea to get a toilet training seat or not. Some parents swear by them, others feel it is best not to use one as you'll only have it when you are at home. And it could make it difficult when you're out and about and they need to use a full sized toilet. It really depends on the child I think.
Personally, I had no hesitation at all in getting a training seat for our toilet. When I was a child I was absolutely terrified of the loo, convinced that the monster in the u-bend would pull me down when I flushed it. Or that I would simply fall in and the monster would get me. I didn't want my son to have any of those sorts of anxieties, and I knew that a seat he could fit perfectly without fear of falling would make a difference.
This toilet seat, made of plastic, sits on top of the adult seat in the loo. Most of the reviews Amazon are five star, with four 4 star reviews, so it must be fairly good! Here's what one customer said: "This product is good value for money. It fits well on the toilet seat without slipping, my son seems to find it comfortable and the raised front section is well-designed for little boys. It is also very easy to clean."

The BecoStep is an environmentally friendly, biodegradable toddler step which helps little ones reach the toilet or basin (or possibly even the kitchen counters, if needed!)
Like its predecessor, the BecoPotty, the BecoStep is made from bamboo and rice husks. They've added some biodegradable resin, and then poured into a hot mould to make a strong and sturdy stepping stool.
Being made from bamboo rather than plastic, the BecoStep is quite heavy, making it less likely to cave in or topple over, which is preferable, really. The wide base is supported by rubber strips on the feet, preventing slipping, and the top has raised contours making it easier for little feet to have a firm grip.
As I said, it is quite heavy, so ideally you wont want your little one carrying it around too much, and because it is so solid, I have wondered whether it would crack easily if, say, dropped, but I was obviously not going to test that out. I had a search around online, but it's not a problem anyone has experienced, so apparently not.
The BecoStep also looks good in the bathroom. It's easy to shove out the way, under the basin, for example, and it doesn't add to the 'a child lives here' appearance of the house.
As with the BecoPotty, there's life for the BecoStep post children too – it makes a fantastic biodegradable planter. You can turn it into a plant pot, planter or mini herb garden. In our house, some of us have also found use for it as a toy box. No guesses who.
Okay, I don't know what to make of this, but the Lavatory Navigator, or Lav Nav is on sale at Play.com for £12.19, a 39% saving of the RRP of £19.99
I think if someone gave me this as a gift, I might be worried they were saying my bathroom stank, but then, hearing the toilet training woes of my friends with sons, I can see the possibilities of this rather bizarre product.
According to the website, when you approach the toilet in the dark, the light turns on thanks to a sensor. It incorporates a night-light so as not to wake anyone else in the house, a visual targeting system (say what now?) and 'put the seat down' reminder technology – which probably negates the night-light.
The Lav Nav light comes on when you approach in the dark, and turns off after you leave, shining gentle yet sufficient light where you need it, when you need it.
Better yet, they say, the Lav Nav uses a red or greed light to cleverly show the position of the seat. It's very bright, very fun and above all else very useful!
I'm not sure how a child will feel about the eerie light in the middle of the night, but if it saves a few mop ups in the morning, it might be worth a try, if not a wacky little gift.
