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!

Great mattress protector

Lovely quality and stays put on the bed for my grandson.

Does the job!

This is great for keeping the bed sheet/mattress dry, however we still have the issue of the duvet getting wet if my daughter has an accident so I still have to strip half the bed. I question how comfortable it is to lay on as the material is a little rough but no complaints from my daughter. One thing I will say is my daughter gets very hot in bed laying on it, since using it she has sweated most nights which is a bit of a worry with overheating.

Hi Tamsin,

Thank you for your review! We're so happy to read that PeapodMat protects your daughter's bedsheet and mattress!

We're sorry to hear about your daughter getting hot at night. PeapodMats don't have a layer of plastic and are breathable so overheating shouldn't happen. Are you using any additional mattress protectors on your daughter's bed?

Please get in touch with us at hello@joizi.com if you require any assistance!

Brilliant! Got my 4yo out of nappies within a couple of nights.

Perfect. I'd been at the end of my tether with my 4yo daughter who didn't want to let go of pull ups so invested in this mat. It's mega absorbent, and non slip and comfy to lay on. It washed well and air dries quickly. Within a couple of nights of use with accidents, she's night dry! I can't believe how much it helped, I wish we had bought it much sooner.

Love it

I now have 3 of these. 1 for each of my children I just love them. Deafintly worth investing in one for you children.

Hello Roxy,
It's great to hear that you're happy with PeapodMats!
Thank you for your feedback and all the best,

Great- but does move about

Covers a great amount of a single bed. It stays put but not all night- however, my son is a wriggly worm at night and moves non stop! The material is great and it feels really nice and soft. He loves his “new big boy sheet”
