5 Tips For Potty Training

Potty Training

HOW TO PREPARE FOR POTTY TRAINING

1. Make sure your child is ready

There is no one right or wrong potty training age. Clues to look out for: your child telling you that they have a wet/dirty nappy, they tell you when they are doing it or they go somewhere private to have a wee or a poo.

2. Choose a time that’s right for you

Make sure you have time for washing, tidying up, etc and be prepared for accidents. It’s a good idea to make a list of needed equipment to make this journey stress free.

3. Keep a potty in the bathroom and another one in a room 

Encourage your child to sit on it a few times a day. If potty is on a carpet, make sure the area around the potty is covered with a waterproof mat in case of any spillages.

4. Prepare lots of clothes changes 

Clothes should be easy to take off and put on.

5. Cover the bed and sofa with waterproof mats 

A waterproof mat will save you a lot of washing and tidying up and protect your furniture. Make sure to choose a safe option such as the PeapodMats.

How to Choose The best bed protection

Glad you asked. There are a few things to consider:

1. Make sure it’s safe! Many widely available mattress protectors/waterproof pads contain PVC which is linked to many serious illnesses including asthma.

2. It has to be comfortable. PVC mattress protectors are crinkly and uncomfortable. You need something that’s pleasant and soft to sleep on, especially because many children have very sensitive skin.

3. It needs to stay in place all night to make sure your child is comfortable and the bed protected.

4. It should be absorbent. You need a product that absorbs wee fast! The last thing you want is a child sitting in a puddle of wee.

5. It should be easy to change and quick drying. PeapodMats are very easy to look after and they dry fast! It’s as easy as looking after a terry cotton towel but with all the above benefits!

I bought the large one for when my grandaughter came out of nappies, she is a fidgety sleeper and this has not move. I now have a second one for her little sister both are excellent. Saves my mattresses on new bed and stay in place for a comfortable sleep. Can’t Recommend enough. Brilliant!

Peapods are an absolute life saver. I have both the large and the medium.
With a urostomy it’s inevitable there will be leaks; just a fact of life.
Having one of these on the bed does away with the stress of airing the mattress etc when “a big one” happens.
It doesn’t feel clinical and thankfully doesn’t give that horrible sweaty feeling others do.
Amazing amazing amazing!

Hi GG, it's great to hear that you're happy with PeapodMats and that they take the stress away for you. Thank you for a great review. All the best, Team JOIZI

Absolutely incredible! We used to buy at least 2-3 new mattresses a year! This magical matt has saved us so much money. Never leaks and lovely soft towel texture. Highly recommend for mummy's or adults with incontinence issues.

Hi Aimee, thank you for your lovely review and recommending PeapodMats to others! It's great to hear that PeapodMat helped you save money on mattresses and you love its leakproof qualities! All the best, Team JOIZI

I purchased 2 of the medium sized Peapods (after a personal recommendation and then reading the excellent reviews) for my partners bed, she has incontinence due to early onset dementia. I am generally pleased with their performance and they have made life easier in this situation. However, usually a small amount of urine does pass through the Peapod with the result that I back it up with two layers of normal towels underneath to absorb this small excess. This system works well and the bed sheet always seems to be dry. It is for this reason that I have given 4 stars.
I would still say that they are worth the cost, obviously I alternate the two Peapods each night and am thinking of getting a third one as extra backup.

Hi David, thank you so much for your review and your lovely words about PeapodMats! Because PeapodMats are breathable (but leak proof) the water from urine may evaporate, causing the sheet underneath to feel cool to touch and giving it a damp feeling. Please also be advised that we generally recommend large size of PeapodMats for adults. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at hello@joizi.com.

After doing loads of research, we purchased a medium sized PeapodMat for my son who is still in pull-ups at night age 5 and a half! We're two nights in and there have been accidents both nights but the mat has worked - it didn't move around in the night and the sheet underneath remained dry so the matress is well-protected.

Hi Hannah, thank you for a great review. We're so happy to hear that PeapodMat has protected your little one's bed so well and stays in place all night. We wish you and your family all the best, Team JOIZI
