Potty Training Made Easy (Giveaway)

I have to admit, potty training is one of my least favorite responsibilities when it comes to being a parent. My older two boys were 3 1/2 and almost 4 when they were potty training. My daughter is 2 1/2 and although she is showing signs of being ready, she’s not quite there. She understands what needs to happen but has a little bit of anxiety, so we aren’t pushing the training until she is completely ready.

 

Pampers Easy Ups

 

When you are ready for potty training, Pampers Easy Ups has you covered to help make your journey a little bit smoother. Easy Ups are awesome for potty training as they allow your child to pull them up and down like underwear, but also safeguard if your child has an accident. I am particularly grateful for that when potty training and we are out and about.

 

Pampers Easy Ups for Girls

 

I don’t profess to be an expert on potty training, but I am a mom who has been there done that. Here are a few tips to remember when you start potty training:

1. Make sure your child is ready! This is the most important step. They could show interest in the potty, not want to sit in a soiled diaper, or request to have their diaper changed. If you push your child before they are ready, chances are that it’s not going to be a positive experience for you and your child.

2. Make training fun. Create a rewards system and include a lot of positive praise while potty training your child. It’s going to make it harder for you and your child if the experience is negative.

3. Take Time. Potty training is going to take time. Make sure you have entire days dedicated to the process and be patient!

 

I mentioned above that I like using Pampers Easy Ups while we are potty training. Not only are they great for daytime use, but nighttime as well. They come in fun designs like Thomas & Friends® designs for boys and Dora the Explorer® designs for girls. Graphics fade when they get wet to help your child learn, and they are available in sizes 2T up to 5T to fit a wide variety of toddlers.

    Small rewards work great to help little ones potty train. If your child isn’t ready, don’t push them, try again later.

    What worked really well for my daughter is having a rewards system. She would get cereal or stickers with each success, and extra rewards if she washed her hands afterward!

    Rewards really motivated my little one. We’d give him a sticker everytime he successfully used the potty. He loved to show them off to everyone!

    A potty training tip I have is to use M&M’s as a reward to keep your child motivated! That worked for my oldest grandson and he was thrilled to just get 1 M&M for doing pee pee and 2 M&M’s for a #2.

    Be Consistent and do not get frustrated. Kids know when you get frustrated and the play off your emotions!

    My tip is to remind the child to use the bathroom often, especially after meals.
