Pampers Easy Ups : Potty Training
This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine. #PampersEasyUps
My daughter has been Trained! She’s been Potty trained for a bit over a year now and I’m proud to say we’ve only had a about 6 or 7 accidents (when she is not feeling well). These Potty Training Tips were the first ones I tried so that my daughter could get into the grove of things and it sure went well. First Thing’s First, Go get some Pampers Easy Ups!
Potty training is an amazing milestone for toddlers AND parents alike, but it can also be super stressful if one or both of you aren’t ready. Spring is the time many families like to start potty training so they are ready for summer fun and then for the start of preschool. In my personal opinion, it is NOT the best situation, but it IS possible depending on your child. Potty training can feel like an overwhelming process, and when minor leaks or accidents occur, it can be a disappointment. Pampers Easy Ups helps make this journey a little easier by providing better leak protection than the leading competitor.
Here’s some product features that you and your child will both love:
In a new partnership between Pampers Easy Ups and a potty training expert, Dr. Laura Jana, We’d like to share a few of her potty training tips and tricks along with our own personal feelings.
1. Promote potty learning: This tip is great because not only are you training, but your are teaching. Teaching your child that the potty or Big Kid toilet is not scary. Teaching them that using the potty is an amazing accomplishment and that they won’t be disappointed.
2. Be Prepared: Dr. Jana says, Potty training is an unpredictable adventure that you can best prepare for by ensuring you have all practical supplies on hand. These supplies will help you through any obstacle and can help foster your child’s interest and independence – from a step stool (to improve access to the toilet) or potty seat to training pants. That’s why I’m happy to partner with Pampers, whose Easy Ups training pants are designed to help the diaper-to-underwear transition by allowing potty-training toddlers to set aside their diapers and wear something with a more underwear-like look and feel that still helps contain accidental messes no matter wherever they happen: at home, on-the-go or overnight.
3. Watch for signs of readiness: Before my daughter and I were starting to potty train, I noticed she would put her toys down, walk to a corner, and do her business. She’d do it each and every time! She’d either take a pause to do her pee or walk to a corner and grunt to do her #2. I’d laugh and then realize this is it. I started to potty train using a potty watch and it helped with her Tinkles. Training her to use the potty for #2 was a bit more challenging so I just waiting until she was ready to do that on her own, while still teaching her to tinkle in the potty.
