With four young children, I seem to have most stages covered. I have an infant, two toddlers and one school aged child. All I’m missing is a preteen and a teenager! However, I’m in no hurry for them to grow up. While I dealt with the top items for a newborn already, I haven’t mentioned the toddlers yet. We have two toddlers, one girl and one boy. These are the items we’ve found extremely useful for them and we use these on a daily basis.
I have found that for potty training, it is easier to have a potty training seat that goes straight on the toilet. We tried a potty training chair and found that we tripped over it often, it felt gross having it lying around and they wanted to use the big toilet anyways. So we ditched the potty training chair and now stick with the seat cover. It works great.
This foot stool is amazing! It folds up for easy storage, yet is simple to use. It gets used daily for potty training, hand washing and for helping mom and dad cook. I also use it for reaching the higher
shelves in the pantry (the woes of a short person!)
Folding High Chair
I saw one of these mentioned online and knew it would be perfect for us! I managed to find one on Amazon and just had to get it! It’s basically a high chair that functions just like a camp chair. There’s even a small tray that can be removed for washing. This is one of my favorite things that we’ve ever purchased for the RV! We can also take this with us to a family or friends house that don’t have a high chair.
Waterproof Mattress Cover
When you’ve got little in diapers, these are invaluable! While the bunks we have are not a standard size, we find that the twin size works great for the beds. We have multiple of these for changing out beds between wash days as needed.
This little chair has come in handy. Mostly used for giving a kid a slight boost at the table, we also use it for extra seating around the campfire and a great place to give an active toddler boy his haircuts. It really comes in handy. (Even as a toy! The kids love sticking a recess ball in the bumbo and then jumping on the ball like a trampoline.)
These are the top items we have for toddlers in our RV. Each is very useful and completely worth the space they take up (even on the days when I kick the Bumbo away from my feet in frustration after tripping over it for the third time).
What would you use in a RV for a toddler?
