Can there ever be enough potty training tips? I don't think so, especially because the process goes so differently for each kid.
Emily shared this eminently practical hack for handling the, uh, fallout:
I'm sure other parents of potty-training toddlers will recognize this situation:
Our son is almost 100% potty trained, but occasionally at night doesn't get out of bed fast enough to get to the toilet.
The other night when my husband was dealing with poopy underwear that needed to get downstairs to the laundry room, he saw a nearly empty plastic wipes container sitting on the counter, so he took the remaining few wipes out, put the wet dirty undies in, and voila, poopy undies transporter!
We now keep that empty wipes container nearby solely for that purpose!
FOREHEAD SMACK OF BRILLIANCE.
Other options for dirty underwear transport:
- plastic bags covering the morning newspaper
- produce bags from the grocery store
- empty food packaging (bread bags, etc.)
Who else has a tip for handling the results of the inevitable potty training miss? Please leave a comment!
