Potty Training: Flushable Wipes vs Toilet Paper

Potty Training: Flushable Wipes vs Toilet Paper

Let’s tackle this tricky part of potty training together!

Which is best for your toddler when it comes to potty training – flushable wipes or toilet paper?

Logic suggests that if the vast majority of parents use moist baby wipes to clean up urine and bowel movements for their babies, why do they suddenly switch to dry toilet paper when potty training? Wouldn’t a more natural choice be to switch to moist toilet tissue?

When it comes to your toddler there is one easy decision which you can make! Select flushable wipes instead of toilet paper.

Why use Toddler flushable wipes for potty training?

You know from first-hand experience that wet wipes are better than toilet paper when it comes to cleaning effectiveness. (Think back to that one time you ran out of baby wipes and had to manage with that pack of tissue from the bottom of your bag. You made sure it never happened again, right?)

You’ve used baby wipes with every nappy change because they are moist, so there’s less irritation and friction against the skin. They provide a more thorough cleaning experience. And you need fewer wet wipes to complete the job than regular toilet paper—without leaving paper bits or other residue behind.

So why stop using them when potty training begins?

Making it easy for kids to wipe their bottoms.

You want to make potty training a positive, successful experience for your child. Teaching them to use Nice ’N CLEAN® Toddler Wipes from the beginning will give them the same comfort they’ve experienced all their lives—and set up good hygiene habits that will last them a lifetime.
