Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes #GetFresh – A Must Have in any Home with Kids

Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist WipesIt’s something parents of young children deal with every day.. our kid’s poop.  I know what you’re thinking.. ew gross!  Yes, it is!  I totally agree.  It’s bad enough what it is, it’s even worse when your little one comes down from the bathroom fully dressed and you smell something not so fresh, only to learn that she didn’t get herself all the way clean down there.   THAT’s what Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes are for and THAT’S why we have a tub of Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes securely fastened to the wall right above the toilet paper roll.  We don’t take chances around here and we make things easy for our kids when it comes to keeping clean.  Thanks to the Mom Central Consulting Cottonelle Blog Tour, I was sent Cottonelle toilet paper and a tub of new Cottonelle Fresh Flushable Moist Wipes.

My kids love them, use them every time they.. ahem.. poop and I feel confident that their nether region gets clean when they use Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes.  More so than with just toilet paper alone.

I LOVE that the new Cottonelle Fresh Flushable Moist Wipes come in a OneTouch® dispensing tub and a Cottonelle EasyReach™ hanger is included (the hanger may be a limited time offer).

I’ll let you in on a secret.  I use!/mommyinsider/status/78638780868870144.  Just like you, I am a multi-tasking, busy, kid-toting, house cleaning, sweat producing mom and I use Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes to get a shower-fresh feeling that leaves me confidently clean in between showers.  I know.. enough of that.

CottonelleCottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes are available in white, blue, lavender and green Pop-Up® Tubs.  The new OneTouch® dispensing tub and Cottonelle EasyReach™ hanger with Command™ brand strips from 3M. Command™ strips hold strongly yet remove cleanly allowing you to securely mount the EasyReach™ hanger where ever you want without worrying about damaging your walls.

We use moist wipes for dirty bottoms, hands, and dirty faces.  Seriously, I used to use regular baby wipes for cleaning my daughter’s face and hands while we’re out, but moist wipes are so much softer and we don’t have to use them quite as often now that she’s older so I don’t mind spending a little extra money for high-quality moist wipes for on-the-go use.  Carry a refill pack of Cottonelle Fresh® Flushable Moist Wipes in your diaper bag or hand bag so you always have access to that “confidently clean” feeling.  🙂

Gear Up for Potty Training


Arm yourself with everything you need for successful potty training. Start with a potty seat that is comfortable for your child. My recommendation for a potty seat is the Baby Bjorn Toilet Trainer. It adjusts to fit any toilet seat and has a rubber ring to keep it in place so that it won’t slip. It is made of one solid piece of smooth plastic so there are no sharp edges. There are plenty of different types of seats to choose from. Find one that suits the needs of your child and yourself.

Next you will need some “tools”. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • BooksSometimes it takes awhile to get the job done. Books help keep your toddler entertained while on the potty- hopefully long enough to make something happen. Books on the potty training topic are particularly helpful and can be read to the child prior to starting the training process to gear up.
  • Potty Charts Children do well with positive reinforcement. Track their progress with stickers and reward them when a goal is reached.
  • Training Pants Go old school with cloth training pants and a plastic cover for faster results. Your child will feel when he/she is wet and will likely learn a lot faster.
  • Potty Training Doll– a potty training partner in crime!
  • M&M’s When all else fails, bribe them!
