When you have your first child, you don’t really realize all of the new things that you will experience within the first couple of years – at least I didn’t. From the different colors of poop, wacky sleeping patterns, watching your baby try new foods, etc. The interesting part of being a new parent is remembering that your babe is experiencing a lot of new things too – everything.
Last month while I was perusing the Munchkin website, I was having an OMG where-did-the-time-go moment realizing that my 17-month old daughter could possibly be potty trained in the near future. What??? It seemed like just yesterday she was a little peanut in my arms.
In preparation for the potty-training phase, I ordered the Arm & Hammer™ 3-in-1 Potty Seat for my dear daughter.
I’m a fan of items that have multiple uses and the Arm & Hammer™ 3-in-1 Potty Seat delivers. The 3-in-1 consists of a sit-down potty, a removable toilet seat to put on a big-person toilet seat, and as a toddler step-stool.
My daughter is just getting introduced to the potty and doesn’t have the interest to use it yet. She is good at lifting and shutting the lid to the toilet and knows where the pee/poo goes. I found one of her toys in the toilet bowl one day…hmmm…we’ll have to work on that.
I love the fact that the Arm & Hammer™ 3-in-1 Potty Seat also has a deodorizer puck that you install in the lid of the toilet. There’s also a compartment on the side of the toilet to hold some Arm & Hammer flushable wipes.
In the meantime while we wait until my daughter is more interested in potty training, we are using the Arm & Hammer™ 3-in-1 Potty Seat as a step-stool to reach new and intriguing things.
A few other items that I ordered while on the Munchkin website were the Click Lock® Fresh Food Freezer Pops and the SaraBear® PORT™ Hamper.
The Click Lock® Fresh Food Freezer Pops are a perfect size for a baby/toddler. The handles are large enough that the little hands can grip them easily and also have little drip trays so as the popsicle melts, the messes are kept to a minimum.
The freezer pop trays separate into two trays of three allowing me to make two different batches of fruit purees. My daughter is still a newbie when it comes to the world of popsicles, but before I know it she’ll be eating them two at a time. On occasion I may even have to use the Click Lock® Fresh Food Freezer Pops for my own treats …margarita mix…yum!
The SaraBear® PORT™ Hamper is a great addition to our nursery. It matches perfectly with our diaper storage bins and is the perfect size – once it’s filled up, I know it will be a full-load of laundry. The handles have a magnetic strip inside to help keep the top of the hamper closed.
The cool part of the SaraBear® PORT™ Hamper is that it’s not just an at-home accessory. It’s made of a heavy duty fabric that allows you to take the hamper out for a beach playdate so it’s great for on-the-go as well.
I must say that I am impressed with the Arm & Hammer™ 3-in-1 Potty Seat, the Click Lock® Fresh Food Freezer, the SaraBear® PORT™ Hamper and am glad to add them to my collection of Munchkin items already in my home. Munchkin is there to help me experience all the new and exciting things as my children grow.
