  • The first time a child flips over, his first step, and his first time to eat solids are just among the many milestones any parent is excited to see. There is one "rite of passage" to parenthood, however, that might not be as anticipated because it can be a lot messy: potty training your toddler.

    Potty training a child can take anywhere from three to six months or longer. Any parent who has gone with his toddler through potty training knows it requires patience, and parents need all the help they can get to take the load off (pun intended) potty training. These products claim they can be of assistance.

    1. Toddler Target Potty Training Bullseye Nightlight

    Training your little boy to go to the toilet when he has the urge to pee can be more challenging than it is with girls because there is the added pressure of aiming accurately into the bowl. This battery-operated accessory provides an easy solution. The motion-activated Toddler Target Potty Training Bullseye Nightlight attaches to the toilet seat cover and projects an image onto the bowl, enticing your child to do "target practice" and direct the stream of his "wee-wee" towards it. It casts a green glow that illuminates the entire bowl. Hopefully, your little one will make less of a mess! Available for $59.99 (about Php 3,100) on Amazon.com.

    3. Aguard "I Can Do It" Baby Potty Training Toilet

    We spotted this Korean-made product at the "Hong Kong Baby Products Fair" last January 2019. The idea is your child likes to copy you, and that extends to how you use the toilet bowl. This baby potty training toilet is the closest your child can get to the real thing including a feel of the toilet seat! It looks and feels like an adult-size toilet bowl, but it is made in the size of your little one (355x372 mm). Pulling down the toilet tank lever will activate the "flushing sound" to train your child to flush everytime he goes (there's no real water, by the way). So we're betting you won't have to force your child to use it just because of this feature. It also has a nifty compartment in the "tank" for your child's knick-knacks. Available on Amazon.com. (Read the finds we saw at the Hong Kong fair here.)

Available for $15.79 (about Php 816) on Amazon.com.
