6 Boy Potty Training Tips You'll Want To Follow by Atlanta blogger Jessica of Happily Hughes

Guess what we’re starting this weekend?  Potty training!  I am beyond terrified but SO ready to stop changing two sets of diapers a day.  Plus, bless his heart, Hudson has been ready for quite some time.  So we are taking the time this weekend to get into boy potty training!  My mom is the expert potty trainer: she had both me and my brother done in two days.  I, however, am not so confident in my own boy potting training skills.

I have stocked up on what my research has deemed the necessities, like these CVS Training Pants.  Obviously, when Hudson is in the house he’ll be wearing underwear or nothing at all until he’s potty trained.  But when we go out during the day, I wanted something that he could wear in case of accidents.  These boy potty Training Pants fit the bill perfectly!

I’ve also gotten these items to help with our boy potty training: 

  • Stickers for rewards each time he goes 
  • Potties for both in the living room and his bedroom so he has easy access 
  • Travel seat so he can go out in public. 
  • Candy for rewards if stickers aren’t enough.  Judge me all you want, I gotta do what I gotta do.  Desperate times my friends. 
  • Extra sheets for when he pees the bed. 
  • Extra wine for me! 

If you have any recommendations for boy potty training items I’ll need, or tips for speedy boy potty training, PLEASE SHARE!  I’d love to hear!
