POTTY TOTS Potty Training Program *Giveaway*

November 17th, 2008 by mamawise

“Potty Training” – those two words can sometimes cause quite a bit of anxiety among parents. I know that I certainly had a lot of apprehension when it came to trying to train my oldest son. Right before my his second birthday, I thought I had a few more months to get myself prepared and ready for the challenge that lay ahead. However, my son had other plans – I knew the time had come since he starting removing his soiled diaper any chance he got. The first few months was tough. I certainly spent a lot of time cleaning my carpets and washing a lot of clothes, all the while searching for answers on how to make this process easier and more enjoyable for the both of us. In hindsight, I can only wish I had the Potty Tots Potty Training Program from the very beginning of our potty training adventure.

The Potty Tots is a unique and amazing potty training tool for toddlers, consisting of a diverse cast of preschool friendly characters that encourage. In the kit, parents will find everything they need for a fun, stress-free potty training experience. Included in the kit are:

  • Potty Training Guide Book – A colorful story book which addresses the challenges of potty training.
  • Illustrated Potty Training Chart – A step-by-step chart which goes over the six essential steps of potty training.
  • Animated DVD – The animated story of the book featuring the Potty Tots characters and fun songs to learn.
  • Progress Game – A positive-reinforcement game which allows your child to track their progress with potty training.

In addition to the kit, parents can access online community resources to help with the potty training process on

Although my son was already day-trained when I received the kit, we were still having issues with nighttime wetting and also with not wanting to poop in the potty. I decided to give Potty Tots a try in order to see if we could work on these two issues. Within, three days my son was waking up dry in the mornings and had his first real poop in the potty. He was still inconsistent with the pooping but by the time two weeks went by, he had successfully pooped four times in the potty without any intervention on my part. I now look forward to using the Potty Tots kit with my youngest son who is a few months away from tackling potty training. I know this is going to make the task so much easier for the both of us.



The Wise Mommy, along with Potty Tots, is happy to host a giveaway for a Potty Tots Training Kit! We will be giving away two kits – one for boys and one for girls!

Take a look at the Potty Tots website and then just leave your thoughts about Potty Tots and whether you would need a boy’s kit or a girl’s kit! The giveaway will run until Nov. 24th 11:59pm EST. Two random winners (one for the boy’s kit and one for the girl’s kit) will be chosen on Nov. 25th and the winners will be notified by email. Good luck everyone!

Tushygear On The Road

July 27th, 2008 by wisemama

I was lucky enough to be contacted by Emily of Tushygear, and sent a sample of her fantastic designs for review. Upon receiving her Tushygear On The Road diaper tote, I was amazed at how well made it is and how stylish it is for lugging around diapers and wipes when you are out and about.

Tushygear On The Road

Like many parents, when I am not using a diaper bag I have occasionally used the standard plastic bag to store my diapers and wipes, as well as using one of those vinyl changing pads in public places. Well, Tushygear is the answer to parents looking for something that helps you carry your diapers and wipes in a small tote that doubles as a super soft and snuggly diaper changing pad. It is compact enough to fit in a small bag or large purse, and it eliminates the need for those pesky plastic or ziplock bags. Sewed by hand in the USA, Tushygear On The Road diaper totes are made with a variety of colorful gender specific and gender neutral soft fabrics that are 100% cotton and completely machine washable. The website, Tushygear also features matching soft baby blankets, microfiber burp cloths, and elegant changing pad covers.

Gotta Go Mitts

April 14th, 2008 by wisemama

Gotta Go Mitts

As a mother of two under the age of three, the task of using the public restrooms has become a scary one, especially when you think about your little ones hands touching all of the nastiness in the bathroom. Gotta Go Mitts have made using the public restroom much less daunting and have helped protect my little one’s hands from touching any less than sanitary surfaces. My oldest absolutely loves to put on his mitts to go potty, and I am so thrilled that his hands don’t have to come into contact with the toilet seat. Gotta Go Mitts have become a necessity to have with me at all times. I keep them in my purse so that I have them handy where ever we go. And with the Spring and Summer season approaching with fairs and festivals, I am truly glad to have found this wonderful product to make going potty outside the home a much more pleasant experience.

Gotta Go Mitts were developed by a stay-at-home mom and mother of two who was concerned about her children’s cleanliness when out of the house. They are made from a thin 100% polyethylene material and are completely waterproof. They come in a small, discrete package, containing 20 mitts, which can easily be put in your diaper bag or purse, and the mitts dispense easily one at a time. They slip on little hands easily and can fit hands of children up to age 7. Additionally, there are many different uses for Gotta Go Mitts other than just protecting hands while in the bathroom. You can use them to prevent hands from getting dirty when your children are, for example, eating popsicles or ice cream, and you can use them when if your child is riding in a grocery cart. The possibilities are endless! For additional information and to order Gotta Go Mitts, please visit the Gotta Go Mitts Website.
