Ahhh… potty training. That time in life where changing your child’s diaper is no longer cute and fun. Your child is ready, you are ready and the time is right. But with all of the advice and opinions from friends and family, how do you know what works for you? If you toddler is showing interest, you can foster it with the right tools. With Summer around the corner, this is the perfect time to train since shorts and summer dresses replace bulky, layered winter clothes! I trained all of mine by using transition items like Pampers Easy Ups, a Little Looster Step Stool, books and potty rings. In fact, I still have the Little Looster in my kid’s bathroom to help my little one get up on the potty easier.
There are a lot of great pieces of advice out there for moms and dads who are ready to let their little ones go it alone. Dr. Laura Jana, who will be the guest at the Pamper’s Twitter Party, has some awesome tips that can help anyone embarking on the journey!
Promote potty learning. Instead of referring to your child’s transition from wearing diapers to using the potty as “potty training,” consider calling it “potty learning.” After all, mastering this eagerly anticipated milestone of childhood takes time, teaching, and plenty of practice and patience!
I love that. I called it ‘training’ and wonder if I had approached it as something out new and fun to learn, if I would have had an easier time! When I was struggling and my kids seemed to get it and then did not, I was glad for products like Pamper’s Easy Ups, however. Pampers Easy Ups have fewer leaks than the other leading training pant to help simplify and improve the overall potty training experience. Pampers Easy Ups have an absorbent core that holds 25% more than the other leading training pant to help ensure little ones remain dry. Plus, with up to 12 hours of protection, it works during the day AND night, enabling toddlers and moms to confidently and completely transition from diapers towards underwear.
Stock your deck. Part of the secret to your child’s potty success will involve being well equipped and removing any obstacles that stand between your child and potty success.
The potty ring and step stool to help your kids feel like ‘big’ kids also helps with potty training. At the age when it is time to train, which varies per child, by the way, feeling ‘big’ can make all the difference in holding your child’s interest. So making sure the bathroom is all set is a great first step!
Start making connections. There’s a lot that you can do to help your child be well-prepared to use the potty successfully long before he actually starts to. Reading fun and engaging children’s books about potty training, such as You and Me Against the Pee! (which Laura Dana co-authored) can go a long way towards making the idea of potty training a family and eagerly anticipated one.
What tips and tricks do you pass on to moms you know who are about to embark on potty training? Or, if you are in the midst, how are you preparing? I would love to hear!
