Which Potty Training Pants should I buy?

It is starting to warm up outside and I can’t say it enough, “I am so glad!”  I personally have had enough of the cold weather and am loving the warm days that we are having at this time.  Due to the warming up of the weather, I am receiving more phone calls than usual,  from parents that are preparing themselves for the wonderful process called “Potty Training“.  The main topic seems to be “Which Training Pants should I buy?”

Most of them are aware already, that going from the paper product pull-ups to cotton training pants, is the first step to potty training.  The pull-ups are designed to keep the child as dry as possible no matter how many times they have accidents in them.  They wick away the moisture from the child’s bottom.  The cotton training pants on the other hand, will make the child feel wet and hopefully uncomfortable, so that they will be motivated to go to the potty in order to stay dry.  We can only hope!

We at RNK carry several kinds of training pants.  Our cotton training pants are thicker than most brands that you can buy in the stores and are available in blue (Potty Scotty) print,  Pink (Potty Patty) print, solid white and some colorful prints as well.  These training pants are designed to catch most of an accident in the thick center portion of the training pant but may not contain all of it.  Should you want help in containing most, if not all of the accident (and I say most because there are some accidents that no matter how hard you try, you just can’t contain all of it),  we recommend that you also use our waterproof pull-on pants to go over the top of them.  (Our pull on pants are not vinyl but are made out of a special waterproof PUL fabric, so you do not hear the rustling like the vinyl ones.)

Should you decide to use the cotton training pants, you will find that they are wonderful because once the child is potty trained, the training pant can also be used like regular underwear.  Be prepared because there will be many times that your child will wait until the last minute to go to the potty.   As they hurry on the way there, they may tinkle just a bit before reaching the potty.  Using this thicker cotton training pant should absorb that slight accident so that it does not go through to their clothing. and therefore saving them from an embarrassing moment.

2in1-Training-Pants-Scotty2_600x6002in1-Waterproof-Training-Pants-Patty_600x600If you do not like having to work with 2 separate items, then our 2-in-1 training pants are more for you.  They give you the convenience of the cotton training pant and the waterproof pull-on all built into one.  These are for daytime potty training just as the cotton training pants are.  They also come in the Blue Potty Scotty and Pink Potty Patty prints.

Bamboo-Waterproof-Training-Pants_600x600Minky-Waterproof-Training-Pants_600x600We have recently introduced some of our new waterproof training pants to our site.  These training pants come in a variety of prints but stand out because the outer PUL fabric is made up of 2 very special materials (bamboo and a very soft minky fabric).  All our waterproof training pants are perfect for potty training your child.

Night-Time-Training-Pants-n_600x600Once your child is day potty trained, you will have to watch for signs that will let you know that they are ready for night time training.  One of the most important signs to look for is that your child is waking up dry or almost dry several days out of the week.  This should be a sign that his/her little bladder has gained enough strength to hold it most, if not all night long until morning.  Once the child has showed this sign, you might want to try our night time training pants.  They are a little bulkier than the day time training pants because night time accidents are usually heavier than those during the day.  For easy night time changing, they are manufactured with 2 sets of snaps down both sides.  The second set of snaps also gives you the ability to increase or decrease the waist size of the training pant.

I strongly suggest that you use not just the weight chart that you see on the site but the measurement chart as well.  Using both increases the chance that the training pants will fit your child.  Good luck with your potty training days ahead and call me should you need any further assistance.

Small Business Award Scam?!

award pictureAwards!  Everyone likes to be recognized for what they work hard to accomplish but at what cost.  We received a couple of emails this week to let us know that our Potty Training Concepts Website and our Potty Patty site were receiving awards from the Pearland Award Program.  Since our warehouse is located in Pearland, Texas, they had our most undivided attention, so we read on.  It sounded really legitimate until we started seeing the red flags.

In the email, it read “The Pearland Award Program has chosen Potty Training Concepts for the 2013 Pearland Awards in the Toys classification.” and if you examine the award closely, it is recognizing Potty Training Concepts for its “Toys”, really?  I didn’t know that is what we specialized in, go figure.    Upon further inspection, we noticed that the phone number was a 1-888 number.  Why if the city of Pearland was honoring us with this award would it have a 1-888 number.  Hmmm?!  Then we decided to do some research on the web to find out all about the awards program that we could.  The email stated that we could display our award on our sites and have one sent to our office as well so that we could display it proudly.  All we had to do was give them a call.   Upon reading the information we found during our research, had we called they would have asked us for money to pay for the award.  Not happening!

You decide, is it a scam?  (http://www.theoriginalsource.com/us-local-business-association-award-or-scam.html)  Would you pay for your award?

We at Potty Training Concepts have found an article from the BBB that you might want to read and it includes some really great tips.

*Learn everything you can about who is giving the award.  If it is coming from a mystery company, chances are it simply wants your money.

*If you didn’t apply for an award or the group cannot tell you how you were nominated, chances are the award is not legitimate.

*Most legitimate awards do not come with costs for the recipient.  If there is a cost, scrutinize it even more closely.

*Ask specific questions about how your company or organization was chosen for an award and find out how many similar awards are given each year.

*Check BBB reliability reports at www.bbb.org or by calling 800-356-1007.

The Pooping Doll!!

I recently ran across Pooping Kong suni, the Korean Doll that passes gas and also “poops”.  Ok, so I know what you’re thinking…. she poops?!!! Well, not literally; the doll comes with a toilet that has a poo graphic in the bottom of the bowl that flips over when you flush it. I’ve never seen pooting and pooping made to look so….dare I say cute?  They even put a happy face on the poo!! LOL

Poop-Doll

As funny as I think this is, I can’t deny the fact that it is similar to our anatomically correct drink and wet potty training dolls Potty Scotty and Potty Patty. At the end of the day all of the dolls are geared to teach children how to use the restroom by simulation.

If it takes a doll like this to get the little ones to poop, then I’m all for it!!

 

 

Time is running out!

Potty-Watch-1 Many of our Moms are preparing their children for pre-school and guess what, one of the requirements is that your child must be potty trained!!  It seems that I have received more phone calls lately and emails regarding their children not telling them when it is time to potty.  At this age, we find that children will not want to stop playing with their toys, watching their favorite programs, or come in from outside and take the potty break that they so need to take.  The outcome of this, a potty accident of course.

 

Potty Watch 1

Children get so involved in what they are doing and their little bladders are just not developed enough to hold it in until they get where they are going.  They just seem to wait too long before they decide they need to go to the potty.  An easy way to resolve this is with our Potty Watches.  The alarms are made to go off regularly, therefore reminding the child to go to the potty on a regular schedule without having to be told.

 

WobL-Watch-Pink-2The way it works is like this.  You set the watch, let say for 30 minutes.  Every 30 minutes the watch alarm will sound off or vibrate to remind your child that it is time to go to the potty.  Once the child has perfected going every 30 minutes without an accident, you will need to increase the time between bathroom visits by setting the alarm to once every hour.  Doing this will allow his bladder to strengthen and you should see him go longer and longer between bathroom runs.  Some of them are very inexpensive and some kids just love to wear them.  What do you have to lose?

International Shipping- What you should know!

International ShippingIt is summertime and potty training is on everyone’s mind, especially if they have a child that is of potty training age.  I have received several phone calls and emails this week concerning International Shipping and custom fees.  It seems like here lately, more and more of the packages that are leaving the country are receiving some type of custom charges.  One thing that you should be aware of, is that not all companies include custom charges in their shipping price.  Our policy, for example, clearly states that all custom fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer.  If you are placing an order and you know that it is an International order, please read the shipping policy before placing it.

The other most asked question this week has been, “How long will it take for my package to arrive if shipped to ??????”  The answer is that it depends on what shipping method you choose.  USPS takes about 2-6 weeks to arrive at its destination.  FedEx on the other hand, delivers in about 1-2 weeks.  The choice is all yours because either way, they both take your package through customs.

And finally, for those of you who like to track your package, you should know that FedEx is insured and  will allow you to have tracking until the time the package is delivered while USPS carries no insurance on your package and will only give you tracking information up to the time that your package hits customs.  All I can say is choose wisely!

Ready, Aim and Fire!!! Hit the Target!!

As a mom, I know that potty training boys is not fun.  They can’t always seem to tinkle directly in the toilet, whether they are sitting or standing.  We spend just as much time cleaning as we do potty training.  I know when I was raising my boys, it would have been nice to have had some of the things that they have come up with now.

Red and white toilet targetIf you are teaching your child to tinkle standing up, we carry a couple of products that you might be interested in.  The first one is called “Potty Training Targets”  and I must say they look just like a target.  Well, all except for the cute little smiley face in the middle! He is just adorable.  You get 50 of these targets in the package and they are very easy to use.  All you have to do is take one and place it in the toilet.  Your child then takes aim and tries to hit therefore keeping his tinkle all in the toilet.  Once he is done, you just simply flush and you are all done.  No fuss and hopefully, no mess to clean up either.

 

 

Potty Scotty-Patty TargetsThe other toilet target, that I would like to share with you is the “Toilet Time Targets” by Potty Scotty/Potty Patty .  Twenty layers of different colored tissue paper are die cut into five different shaped targets.  You can place 5 or 6 of these in the toilet and let your child aim for them.  (These are also flush-able.)   Toilet training with “Toilet – Time Targets” not only builds your child’s confidence and independence but can be used to teach them animal shapes and colors.  And if little sister doesn’t want to feel left out, we have some for her as well.  She goes to the potty as usual (she doesn’t stand up, though LOL!)   and gets excited because she can hit them as well.  Yeah!

What a way to make toilet training fun and hopefully less messy for you!  Give them a try!!

4 Reasons to Use a Potty Chart

Potty Patty Training ChartThe key to potty training is to stay positive with your child and to be consistent.  Easier said than done because there are times during this process, that we ourselves would like to just throw up our hands and retreat!  If we feel that way, how do the children feel when they don’t always get the potty training process right?  How do they feel when they do?

It is at this time that we should use a potty chart!  A potty chart is a good means of rewarding the child without filling them full of candy or other sweets.

There are 4 good reasons to use a potty chart.

1.  A Potty Chart is a wonderful way to show the child, the progress that he/she is making with their potty training.  They can physically see what they have done and what they still need work on, to become the potty training graduate!

Potty Scotty Training Chart2.  It is a great motivator for the child.  Some children are motivated to go to the potty, because they love receiving the sticker on the chart.  To us, it is nothing more than a mere sticker but to them, it stands for something so much more.  In their little minds, it could mean being a super hero who is attempting to conquer the evil porcelain throne.  Okay, so that might be a little far stretched but you get the picture.

3.  Besides being a great motivator, the potty chart is an awesome way to show encouragement and praise.  For every sticker that the child places on the chart, it is telling them that they have done a good job and that you are proud of them.  It encourages them not to give up but to reach that goal of being diaper free and into big boy/big girl underwear.

4.  And  now for number 4, the chart becomes the child’s trophy, something that will help them to show off all their accomplishments.  Now who doesn’t like to show off!  They will tell you all about it for hours if you let them!
