Once you start potty training, there’s no turning back. It’s a wild ride filled with training pants, accidents, potty time rituals, and rewards charts – in short a messy job that takes dedication and patience. But there are a few apps that can help with the process. We’ve uncovered five of our favorite smart phone apps that help make potty training more rewarding for everyone involved.

The New Potty

If your child loves Mercer Mayer's Little Critters, then this app is sure to catch his attention. Learn the ins and outs of going potty, in a delightfully illustrated and narrated story. Read it during the day or at bathroom time to remind kids that going potty is what big kids do. You can even record your own voice and share the story between smart phones so your little one will never be with out it.
