Nuby Step-Up Stool Review & Giveaway

Nuby Step-Up Stool

Daily routines are easier when The Toddler can accomplish some of the hygiene tasks by himself.  We are big proponents of oral hygiene care.  At 29 years old I still do not have a cavity.  I am thankful that my mom took care of our teeth when we were little and that she made sure to teach us how to care for them at an early age.  We started brushing The Toddler’s teeth when his first tooth popped through.  Now that Em has her first tooth we do the same.  

Now that we have two little ones-morning is quite chaotic!  

The Toddler LOVES being able to get on the stool to wash his hands, face, brush his hair(he doesn’t really have any-but still loves to do it) and then brush his teeth before we go downstairs in the morning.  The twinkle in his eye when he is doing his “Big Boy” tasks are down-right adorable.  The thought of that look makes me smile as I sit here and type.

Now that we are truly in the trenches of potty-training(lovely picture I know) it helps to have a stool for him to use to get up on the big toilet and then for him to move over to the sink-to wash his hands.  Washing hands is a big deal in our family!  You may not know it with how much I’ve been sick this year(I blame lack of sleep-activities around tons of kids-and the passing of colds through our family-over-and over-and…).

After getting home from the park or an activitiy we wash our hands.  Before eating we wash our hands.  You get the picture-but when you suddenly have to drop everything and help your little one to do that each time- you don’t realize how often you are visting the bathroom to use the sink.  This stool has helped promote some independence. Independence that I know my little man wanted and needed.

We have tile in our bathrooms and I am thankful that this stool does not slip!  Even after bath time at night and the floor is soaking wet I do not have to worry about The Toddler taking a spill.

Nuby Step-up Stool has a No-Slip and No Skid Base that adds to the sturdy and convenient design.  It holds up to 800 pounds and is perfect for getting to those hard to reach places.  Textured surface provide the necessary grip for safe usage, and it is small enough to store discreetly.
