Potty training is one of those things that although dreaded, must be done.
A lot of the times, I think we parents put too much pressure on ourselves (and sometimes on our kids).
After successfully potty training 2 kids and working on the third, I thought I would share Life as Leel’s Potty Training 101.
1. Snag your kiddo some Pull-Ups® training pants the next time you are out and about.
You don’t need to make a special trip to the store – just snag a pack the next time you are at your local Kroger or Kroger banner store (Fred Meyer, Foods Co., Ralph’s, Food 4 Less, Fry’s, Smith’s, QFC, King Soopers/City Market, Dillon and Jay C.).
Baby Girl and I snagged some Pull-Ups® training pants with the learning designs the last time we had to make a milk run!
We like Pull-Ups® training pants for a variety of reasons:
- They have always came in the kids’ favorite designs (Cars, Princesses, Disney Jr., etc.) making the kids excited to wear them.
They come in learning designs (they change color when wet) or the coolness alert (the inside gets cool when wet) making it more noticeable for child and parent to pay attention to potty patterns.
They have night time training pants.
The sides are velcro making for easy off if needed (and adjustable if you have a bigger child.)
They offer a wide range of sizes: 2T–3T (18- 34 lbs.); 3T–4T (32–40 lbs.) and 4T–5T (38+ lbs.)
In all honesty, they are a brand that we trust and do the best job!
They offer online support as well as a phone app to help with potty training needs!
Baby Girl loved that her favorite Disney Jr. characters were on her Pull-Ups® training pants.
She had Minnie Mouse, Princesses, and Doc and Lambie!
2. Make the potty accessible.
Even my 9 and 6 year old would rather play or watch television than stop and go potty. My 2 year old is no different!
As soon as she started showing interest in potty training, we brought her potty chair into the living room and got her into some Pull-Ups® training pants.
She loves nothing more than to be around the family, watching her show, “reading” a book while sitting on her big girl potty.
3. Make use of Pull-Ups® Big Kid Academy and Pull-Ups® Time to Potty App.
Both have great resources for parents as well as positive reinforcements for kids that include their favorite Disney Jr. characters!
The Pull-Ups® Time to Potty App sets a timer for potty breaks, tracks progress, cheers with the kids when they go potty, and have other neat features including games and phone calls from their favorite character! What a great way to encourage your child to use the potty!
4. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself or your child!
While I was potty training our first, my mother in law would always tell me:
And it’s true! They will potty train when they are ready – don’t stress about it!
No reason to traumatize yourself over potty training!!
