Thank you to Pull-Ups® Training Pants and Dollar General for sponsoring today’s post and helping me to set the stage for potty training success!
Let’s face it. Potty training can be overwhelming – daunting, in fact – whether this is your first child or you’ve done it before. Thankfully Pull-Ups® Training Pants and Dollar General have taken the guesswork out of potty training and made it journey easier for kid and parents!
It’s hard to believe that my husband and I have successfully potty trained three daughters, which should mean we are professionals, right? We’ve made quite a few mistakes along the way but also learned a lot in the process. We our firstborn, we rewarded our oldest daughter with candy but soon realized we needed to do something different because we didn’t want her expecting candy every single time she went potty! Each of our girls is different and has approached the potty training process in different ways. A one-size-fits-all approach to potty training simply doesn’t work because each child is unique!
We are on the potty training journey again, this time with our first boy! Did you hear that? B-O-Y! We’re tempted to fret but we don’t have to since Pull-Ups® Training Pants has some great resources to help us along the way, plus Pull-Ups® are on sale now at Dollar General to help us stay on budget!
These 5 Easy Potty Training Tips will help make your life – and your child’s – easier!
- Educate Yourself
Pull-Ups® has some great information to help parents better understand the potty training process and how to make it easier and fun, especially for mom and dad! Once you’re armed with a foundation for how to tackle the potty training journey with your little one, then
- Take a Personality Assessment
Pull-Ups® has an great Potty Training Personality quiz to help you understand your little one and know what approach to take. I’ve always wondered how each of my kids will do during the trying to potty train them and yep, they’ve all been different! This quiz helps take the guesswork out of the process to help give me more confidence in knowing which approach to take.
Pull-Ups® has developed five potty training personalities: the Puppy, the Owl, the Bear Cub, the Turtle and the Squirrel. Ours is a Bear Cub! The quiz results confirmed our suspicions that he probably won’t take to potty training soon. Understanding his personality has better helped us approach the process with him. Since he’s curious about potty training but easily distracted, we’ll continue to talk about it and encourage him, but not push him into doing something he’s really not ready for. For example, I took him into the bathroom the other day to see if he wanted to go potty and he said yes, but quickly noticed the sink and then asked to brush his teeth!
- Use the right product.
If you’re like me, there’s a temptation to use diapers while potty training because they’re more familiar, but resist the urge! Toddlers thrive on consistency and diapers don’t teach potty training skills like Pull-Ups® Training Pants do. They look and fit more like underwear, giving your child the independence to slide his pants on and off, while also providing consistency for any learning style throughout his potty training journey.
