Tait Eyre is a father of 5 and helped create Potty Patrol alarm diapers which help children become potty trained.
Research shows that half of the diapers in aisles today are designed for kids old enough to be potty trained. Two young fathers, with a combined total of nine children, have developed an innovative system to potty train children.
In 1961, 90 percent of children were trained by their second birthday. Today, only 45 percent of children are trained by that age. Potty training at age 2 can save parents hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in diaper costs. If a child wears a size 4, 5 or 6 diaper or training pants, they're ready to get out of diapers for good and Potty Patrol can get them there.
Sometimes children get confused today by being asked to sit on the toilet when they don't have to go. With our system kids go to the restroom for one reason - to use it. The system works because Potty Patrol helps the child to make the connection and recognize the need to go to the bathroom.
The parent snaps a Potty Patrol sensor on the front on the child's diaper, which is automatically then activated. Once the sensor detects wetness the alarm alerts parent and child by playing a short siren followed by Twinkle Twinkle Little Star twice. The parent then places the child on the toilet to make a strong connection between cause and effect. The alarm is then ready to be used again on a fresh diaper.
Parents who use Potty Patrol alarm diapers report that it has been a fun and exciting way to potty train. It's fast, helps the child develop confidence and gives parents a whole new world of freedom, mobility, and independence.
