POD: Potty Time

Before I potty trained both my girls, I remember feeling anxious and overwhelmed. That might sound silly coming from me since I teach potty training for a living ;) Why did I feel this way? Because it is overwhelming, and the unknown can feel scary. I am a firm believer in having a plan and prepping children the best we can for new things and transitions. It is also helpful to prep ourselves too.

POD: Potty Time

With that being said, there are signs we want to watch and pay attention to. There is a trend of potty training earlier, and that is fine. However, it is important to meet the child where they are at, and not every kiddo will be ready on the early side. That is also okay. Pushing a child too early with potty training is not a good idea. Toileting skills are very independent skills, and we do not want to push a child too early and have them not be ready and, in turn, not be successful.

Overall, make sure you prep and everyone in the house is ready to commit to the transition of potty training. Get all items set up before day one, and remember to communicate what is happening with your child as well. Deep breath & good luck!

Training diapers are the middle ground between diapers and underpants. They have a similar feel to underwear, and are much easier to pull off and on than a diaper, plus they contain absorbent materials that prevent most leaks. This option is a great choice when it comes time for potty training, as it provides an array of benefits that can simplify the process, and even expedite it (every parent's dream)!

As training diapers are specifically designed to allow the child to pull them down, they help build a sense of pride and autonomy every time the child is able to go to the potty without needing their parent to help them remove a diaper. In addition, the child can independently put on a fresh training diaper, just like they would with underpants.

While standard diapers almost entirely absorb urine, training diapers often allow a bit of the moisture to remain. The (on-purpose) mild discomfort this moisture can cause provides motivation to use the potty instead of soiling the diaper.

Because training diapers are such a gentle transition, they can help you start potty training sooner than you would with underwear. So instead of waiting for your child to have full bladder control, you can ease into potty training as soon as they show an interest in using the toilet. And when your child is ready to use underwear, but has trouble with bladder control when asleep, you can continue using training diapers at night, and during naps.

But look a little closer and you'll notice the image doesn't have a time stamp. Additionally, it does not appear anywhere on Tide's current Twitter feed. And there's the fact that the "tweet" spells pods lowercase, when the company always uses all caps.

Potty training can be painful, but being prepared is key: Comfy potty and toilet trainer? CHECK! Big boy underwear? CHECK! Motivational treats to reward desired behavior? CHECK! Cleaning supplies for the inevitable accidents? CHECK! Mental toughness on the part of the parents? TBD! Prince Lionheart's SQUISH is among the best of the best in Prince Lionheart's potty line as it is not only comfy, but it has a strong, non-slip base for security, a removable bowl and a built-in splash guard for oopsie daisy aim and easy cleaning. Feeling safe and secure is just as important as remaining comfortable while waiting (seemingly forever) for nature to call. Toddlers who feel safe and secure tend to have an easier time with the transition. Not only that, but Prince Lionheart's potties, toilet trainers, step stools and faucet extenders all look great, are color complementary for a cohesive bathroom look, are easy to use, store, or take on the road, and have worked successfully for toilet trainers and toddlers around the world for years! Treated with an EPA-approved anti-microbial additive to keep the potty clean, parents love that it is easy to use, easy to wipe clean, and easy to take on the road for potty-training on-the-go.

Many traditional beanbags wear out quickly, and produce a sagging or sinking feeling after just a few sits. We engineered Moon Pod to last for years! After some time, you may need to refill the inner sleeve with additional beads. However, after refilling the beanbag it will act as good as new! Contact us at for refill pre-order requests.

In Western countries like the United States, many children begin toilet training sometime between 24 and 36 months. But from an historical and cross-cultural standpoint, this timing is very late, and it comes with a downside.

The immediate benefits are pretty obvious. Babies never wear diapers, so they avoid the rashes and infections associated with diapers. Their parents save time and money on diapering. And going diaper-free is good for the environment.

Children under the age of 18 months are not going to achieve true toileting independence. To stay clean and dry, they need regular, frequent reminders to visit the potty. And they require our ongoing help with things like removing clothing, wiping, and washing up.

For example, studies in multiple countries have reported links between late training and a higher probability of experiencing bladder problems, including daytime incontinence after the age of 5 years (Barone et al 2009; Bakker 2002, Bakker et al 2002; Joinson et al 2009; Li et al 2020; Wang et al 2020).
