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!

Eco friendly

It’s like a big towel BUT it stays in place more than a towel would. I bought because it’s much more eco friendly than disposable bed mats. My only negative is that it takes ages to dry. A good couple of days if not bright sunshine and it’s not recommended to tumble dry it. Despite that I think to save the planet from landfill full of disposable bed mats it’s worth the money and the drying time

Not impressed

It’s a glorified towel with a backing sheet. It doesn’t move around that much but £40 for it, I wouldn’t recommend. Also had to ask my daughter if she even wanted to sleep on it as it isn’t feel comfy … it’s a towel

Great product

Bought the single sized pea pod mat in grey to assist my little boy who is 3 in his night time potty training. It’s brilliant. So reassuring it’s there when leaving him to sleep through the night and if he does have an accident I know it’s easy to wip off wash and tumble dry again for the same night. We will be buying another one to leave with the grandparents.

Brilliant Product

Purchased these as I have 2 boys who were struggling with making it through the night. So easy to use and great for if they fell asleep for a nap during the day as you can just slip them under them anywhere in the house. Also great for travel.

Hello Leia,
It's wonderful to hear that PeapodMats are great for travelling and you find them easy to use when your little ones nap during the day.
Thank you for your feedback and all the best,

Best find!

Having two additional needs children, one with bowel issues, one with night terrors and bed wetting, I was throwing away single used pads and bedding on the regular, even a few totally ditroyed matresses and was becoming costly. Since I found this product it has saved me in so many ways, the quality is amazing nd they wash well, we currently have 5 in our house, I couldn't do without them on our beds now.

Hello Victoria,
We're delighted to hear that you're happy with quality of PeapodMats!
