Choose Place for the Potty
Choosing a location in your home to keep the potty can be a bit tricky. You want to make sure you hit three main targets when selecting a spot:
- Somewhere it is easy to access
- Somewhere your child feels comfortable, and
- Somewhere with few distractions
For many, this may be the living room since it is a central location where the family likely spends a lot of time. However, this may not always be the most ideal, especially if you have carpets that will be difficult to clean in case of an accident. It may also be a bit unappealing if you have guests coming to visit.
Look for a place that is good for both you and your child. This may mean moving the potty around a few times before you are able to find a spot that is consistently successful.
