Potty Training Tip: Ideas for Boys

Well, I’m not potty training a little boy…yet!  But I was given a couple of tips (maybe they are no-brainers, but I was glad for the advice) that may help. 

cheeriosI laughed so hard when a friend shared her potty training tip with me for little boys.  She said to put Cheerios in the toilet so that he can have target practice.  I’m definitely filing this idea away for the future!  (And then I’m going to turn Nolan over to Daddy and let him do the training!)

If you are teaching your little baby-bjorn-potty-chairboy how to sit on the potty, you will likely want to get a potty chair or seat with a good shield on the front.  My husband picked out our potty chair for Elaine, but we chose the Baby Bjorn because it has a great “splash guard” on the front.  It worked well for Elaine, but it will be even more useful when Nolan’s turn comes around.

Do you have any special tips, tricks, or successes in potty training a little boy?  Leave your advice here for the other readers!

We JUST started potty training our 2 year old son, and we've been putting him on the toilet backwards. We have a small seat to go on our toilet, rather than a potty chair, and we find that putting him on backwards spreads his legs and pushes his hips forwards, so things point into the toilet rather than straight up :)
