For the longest time, M has been using her little Elmo potty.

Now that she’s almost 2 1/2, I want to start really getting her used to going in the potty than in her diaper.

We went to my aunt’s house for New Years Eve and noticed that my cousin’s daughter uses the Baby Bjorn Toilet Trainer over the toilet seat instead of her little princess potty.  M used it while we were there and I noticed that she was totally comfortable with it.


It fits very snug and secure on top of the toilet bowl.  There is a dial located on top of the seat where you turn it to fit the toilet seat.

When M sits on it, she feels totally secure.  She doesn’t feel the need to hold on to me like she has when she’s sat on other toilet seat trainers.  Most of the ones I had purchased in the past were meant for travel and were not as sturdy as this one.  She is very comfortable being left on that seat like a “big girl.”  I think that’s why it seems to work so well for us.

This definitely isn’t a traveling trainer, but I think it is enough to start getting M over her fear of public restrooms and toilets.  Since sitting on this trainer, she has been willing to sit on toilets in restrooms when we are out and about.

I highly recommend this toilet trainer.  It’s great and I wish I purchased this instead of the traveling ones.

We purchased this at Babies R Us.  It costs $34.99, but they had a 20% coupon that we used.

Buy it.  Really.  Buy it!



These items are found almost everywhere. They are really cheap but so great!

They are plastic and are pretty much disposable if you wanted them to be. They are priced cheaply so that if you do lose or break it, it doesn’t send you off crying because you have to buy another one.

Each purchase comes with about 5 or 6 cups in a pack. The colors are bright, but I think you can buy some with characters on them. I haven’t found them yet, but when I was looking for pictures online for these, I stumbled upon them.

The straw cups are great. They are just the right size for a toddler. The downside is that the straws are easily removable by a curious toddler that loves playing with water. Giving her these straw cups is a risk. Usually she ends up soaked in whatever fluid we were giving her.

The sippy cups are awesome. We had gone through so many different types of sippys and thought that M just didn’t like them at all. We went through the playtex and dr brown brands and were unsuccessful.

Little M actually likes these particular sippy cups. They are also relatively spillproof. Of course if you shake it, liquid will come out, but she really has to make an effort to make a mess with these.

The one downfall of these cups is that the lids can easily come off if dropped onto the floor. There had been times we’ve had to soak up water off the carpet.

Overall, I’m very, very happy with these cups. I recommend them to everyone!
