Christina asks: how do you make the toilet accessible for a toddler to use while potty training but not for water play?
Abigail’s kid’s too short to reach the sink in a public restroom, but she’s pregnant, so picking him up and propping him against a germy countertop isn’t ideal. Any ideas?
The title of this hack says it all (perhaps too much for some of you?), but Kim deserves major credit for sending this in. Because, come on! This is so helpful!
In response to a hack suggesting disposable changing pads as car seat poop-protectors, @Heatherikki pointed out a smart non-disposable solution.
I’m sure Candice speaks from potty-training experience.
“The prospect of opening an advent calendar door for each potty success worked amazingly well to motivate my 3-year old son after chocolate buttons, jellybeans, temporary tattoos and a sticker chart had all failed. It was like magic!”
Adorable + functional: my favorite combination.
Our kids love to wear temporary tattoos — those colorful decals that go on with a bit of water. I don’t mind them wearing the tattoos, but I don’t like trying to remove them…
There’s nothing better than a dead-simple toy that invites hands-on (or mouth-on!) experimentation. Especially when said “toy” can be purchased at the hardware store for practically nothing.
Stacy has been changing diapers for seven years. That’s a LOT of diapers. And she has just discovered a simple change in technique that keeps her baby’s hands out of the “poop zone.”
