When training a toddler to use the bathroom, parents and guardians may often face certain challenges as the parent may not know how to train the child.

One can decide to use a potty training doll to help the toddler know how to use the bathroom more efficiently.
Potty training dolls are dolls that are made specifically to help children learn how to use the toilet. Since the child views the doll as a fellow child, they will most likely do what the doll does.
