Toilet training has been an absolute nightmare for us. Taking, and this is no word of a lie, nearly 2 years. The key for us was perseverance and eventually removing all nappies and training pants entirely. Even at night!
There’s no two ways about it, he was, and still isn’t ready to be without pants at night. He’s not dry. But they were causing so many issues during the day, really confusing him and encouraging him to just try and hold on all day, we had to take the plunge.
So what does this mean for us? Well it means none of us get a full night’s sleep. It means the washing machine is working overtime and we also needed more bedding, lots more bedding.
Thankfully there are some great choices with Kiddies Kingdom.
You may think they are just for babies, or know that you can get amazing nursery furniture sets from Kiddies Kingdom. Well the nursery furniture sets are indeed amazing and I wish we had got ours from them and there is everything you need for babies, but they also cater for slightly older children, especially on the bedding front. We got everything we needed and more.
I already had two sets of bedding on the go but this just isn’t enough. You need 3. Minimum. One on the bed. One in the wash. Plus one ready to go. It’s not just are the bed covers, you need sheets both waterproof and normal. I’d also recommend a second, machine washable duvet. So that’s just what I got from Kiddies Kingdom. A cute bedding set, new duvet, fitted sheet and waterproof sheet. Everything came really quickly. The cost was great and the quality is just brilliant. I’m so impressed.
The website is easy to navigate and they had loads to fit his cotbed sized mattress, which can be quite awkward. The fitted sheets have generous fittings and plenty of elastic, making bed changes a lot easier. The bedding is the perfect fit, without being baggy or too small which can often be an issue.
More than anything it’s made our lives easier. We can leave his second duvet made up ready for the swap, then just quickly change the bottom sheets before everyone goes back to sleep.
I know he’ll get there soon enough. Already we’re getting some dry nights but at least for now we don’t have to stress about getting our laundry done immediately.
