We all know that the habits children develop when learning to use the potty are likely to last a lifetime, thus it is important to teach them to wash their hands.
As part of our stress-free potty training a few months ago (which I’ll write more about at a later post), we were also teaching our toddler good hygiene like washing his hands. And what toddler doesn’t go through the stage where they wants to do everything all by themselves?
Every time after Big J goes to the potty, he did not want to have Mommy help him wash his hands at all. The problem was even with a stool, he still had a hard time reaching to wash his hands. Since I didn’t like it when he try to climb up the sink, I’d have to fight to hold him up to wash his hands. I knew there had to be a better way!
The Aqueduck is simple and inexpensive yet ingenious invention that helps the water reach little hands. It easily slips on and off bathroom faucets and extends the water’s reach by several inches. It brings the water flow out far enough that Big J can reach it perfectly. We keep it on our hall bathroom faucet and it doesn’t inhibit adult use of the sink in any way. One of our guests even thought I put it there to provide a smooth water flow!
I can’t believe that something so simple and inexpensive has made such a big difference in our day to day living so I highly recommend it!
