Easy to pour? Into it. Truly, anything that makes this process less complicated is wonderful, including this award-winning potty.

4. Mat & Sheet Protector For Night Accidents

Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka-Mat & Pad

Avoid ruining mattresses and sheets by putting a waterproof pad in your child’s bed. This will not only help you when it comes time for laundry, but sources* say your stress levels will be happily low.

*Us, we said that, just now.

5. Toilet Seat Reducer

Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka-Toilet Seat Reducer

Ahh, the good ol’ toilet seat reducer. This product is great because it makes the toilet a child-friendly size, and it’s easily removable from the toilet and is simple to manage.

6. Cheerios

Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka-Cheerios

Wait, what?! Before you roll your eyes and think, “THIS LIST IS CRAZY!” settle down! Cheerios are actually super helpful when it comes to teaching boys how to aim when they pee. It might seem silly, but nobody wants pee everywhere and all over the toilet seat. Having something for a boy to “aim” for when peeing can teach them not to make a mess.

7. Candy

Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka-Skittles

Hey, a little bribery never hurt anybody, right? Don’t answer that question. But really, if you’re not above bribing your kid with treats to get them to learn how to use the potty appropriately, go for it. Obviously there’s no need to overdo it, but sometimes a little sweet incentive can go a long way.

8. Hand Sanitizer

Felicity Huffman's What the Flicka-Hand Sanitizer

There’s no getting around the fact that you will have pee/poop/general disgusting things covering your hands at some point during this process. It’s best to be prepared with lots of cleaning products, and hand sanitizer is probably the most important. Keep this blessed and sacred product close at all times.
