Toddlers and potty training! Those two words can make a parent beam or scream. It can be the best of times, and then it can be the worst of times! There is just not one secret trick that works for every child you have. I can recall potty training my first one was incredibly hard. He just did not want to have any part in it. We tried incentives to letting him walk around the house naked, but nothing worked! To say we were frustrated is an understatement. At the time of his potty training “season,” my son was enrolled in a local daycare. I remember him not being able to move up to the next class because he was not fully potty trained. While that did not seem to bother him in the least, we did see a spark of interest when pool season opened. In order to swim in the “big kid pool” a child had to be fully potty trained. As his buddies in preschool went to the pool, our sweetheart had to stay behind. It did not take too long before the urge to swim overcame him, and suddenly we found ourselves at the doorstep of pottying! He seriously just took a week or so and he was being a big kid!
Now we find ourselves once again at the threshold of pottying like a big kid. How will this one go? Only time will tell. One thing is for sure, he LOVES wearing his Pampers Easy Ups. He tells us he feels like daddy in his big boy underwear.
Is your baby in the potty training stage? This is such a busy time in your life and your little one. Training a toddler is not an easy task, but with patience and a little rewarding your sweet one could be on their way to pottying success!
Pampers is launching one of the biggest innovations in training pants in years: the new and improved Pampers® Easy Ups™ Training Underwear – a product designed to help little ones and their families during their “Underwear Training” journey. New Pampers Easy Ups are the easiest way to underwear! They look, fit and feel like real underwear while providing the leak protection you’d expect from Pampers. Little ones will think it’s underwear, but you’ll know it’s Pampers. New Pampers Easy Ups have a 360° stretchy waistband for an underwear-like fit that’s easy for your toddler to pull up and down. Easy Ups are super soft, like cotton underwear, to keep your toddler comfortable. Easy Ups also tear easily at the sides just in case it’s needed.
Pampers has some great tips and suggestions for parents entering the potty training stage. First, prepare ahead of time by buying a potty that sits on the floor, and place it in a room that the child spends alot of time in. Second, let them practice sitting on their new potty with clothes on and without. Want to know more? They have lots of great tips here.
Pampers Easy Ups is a great line that you can trust. It works during the day and night, and provides up to 12 hours of protection. What is so cool about this line is that it has an underwear-like design for growing toddlers. Super-stretchy sides make them easy to pull up and down when using the potty.
