School is out for the summer which means summer vacations are a go. If you're traveling with a potty training child, you need to be prepared since your kid is learning to make the transition from diapers to regular underwear. Here is how to prep for taking on summer vacation with your kiddo:
- Keep treats on hand: Whether your kid is motivated by a piece of candy or a favorite toy, bring the incentive with you. Using incentives on the road will help your kid understand that good behavior is appreciated wherever you are. It doesn't matter if you're at home with your kid or at a theme park, your child will learn that taking care of potty business on the toilet is the only way to do it.
- Extra, clean undies: Like the old saying goes, accidents happen. Always be prepared with extra underwear. For example, you're going to be out of house for two days and one night, pack a total of four or five pairs of clean underwear. You'll also want to pack gallon Ziploc bags to store any dirty underwear while you're out of the house. Ziploc bags will contain any gross odors and fluids.
- Positivity is key: Remember that potty training means changes for your kid. Ultimately, your kid may be stressed from having to use the toilet or potty. Be patient and positive throughout the process of potty training.
