Getting the bathroom ready for potty training
It’s not a coincidence that we’re constantly washing our hands these days.
After we received a sample step stool from BabyBjorn, we’ve been spending much more time in front of the sink. Whether we’ve done art activities or baking, been outside, are going for a meal, or simply feel it’s been too long since we last visited the bathroom, there’s always a good reason to wash hands.
Teaching toddlers to wash their hands more independently is useful when planning potty training, and the BabyBjorn step stool makes it fun an easy. Now washing hands is practically a game.
Baby Girl can move her pink step stool and make sure it’s in the right position. She can climb up on it herself – or make me stand on it and reach down to wash my hands.
The BabyBjorn one stands out because of its non-slip surface and rubber edging underneath, which means it feels safe for two-year-old Baby Girl to stand on. She’s never fallen off. And I haven’t either.
When preparing for potty training, a step stool is extremely practical. It can also be used for helping little ones climb up on the toilet seat, and I can see it being in use in our house for a very long time.
I’m at least preparing myself for lots more fun hand-washing sessions.
