The time is near, The time in all our children’s life that each and every parent can not wait for. NO MORE DIAPERS. Yes that’s right one more milestone to overcome and you have reached the dream that I know my husband has been dreaming about for ages it seems. Just one small thing to over come. Potty Training. I know it’s not as easy as it sounds. I know with Nolan it took us what seemed like forever to get him trained.
Here is to starting 2015 the right way and starting what I like to call Potty Training 101 and I use
Pull-Ups® training pants to help me pass the class.
What is it I do to get the ball rolling you ask. Well that would be two major items.
Pull-Ups®, a timer, some music and DumDums.
The first day I sit him down and explain to him what we will be doing. I show him his soon to be his DumDums and let him know that as soon as he goes peepee in the potty that he can have one. I also get out my JBL Charger 2 and let him know hat if he goes poo in the potty that we will do the poo dance. Yes we have a poo dance.
He shakes his head as if he understands what i’m telling him and of course cries the second I don’t give him his DumDum right away. This is when I tell him “you have to go potty on the potty to get your DumDum and take him to the bathroom.
Now Nolan never used a training toilet so Luke doesn’t want too either.
As soon as he goes pee and i’m done jumping and screaming because i’m so happy I let him pull up his own training pants up and let him pick which DumDum he wants. Works like a charm.
I feel like using Pull-Ups® gives me a big advantage as well. Not only does the Pull-Ups® have Disney characters on the front and back, making Luke want to wear them even more, but they are a great way to mimic undies without having to clean up the accidents he WILL make while learning. I also checked out Big Kid Academy which had amazing tips as well. If potty training is something in your near future, I strongly suggest doing all the research you can. Big Kid Academy has many resources to help you out. All you have to do is register to learn more and stay connected during the potty training process. A cool added extra is you can download the Pull-Ups® Time to Potty app to help you keep track.
The great thing about Pull-Ups® is that they come in all sizes: 2T–3T (18- 34 lbs.); 3T–4T (32–40 lbs.) and 4T–5T (38+ lbs.); with great new designs like Doc McStuffins and Ariel for girls and Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Lightning McQueen for boys. With three different kinds of gender and size specific training pants that include: Cool Alert®, Learning Designs®, Night*Time Training Pants
I found my Pull-Ups® at Kroger if this is something you might be ready to give a try.
