Take It From Me: Pampers Easy Ups {Review & Giveaway} #PampersEasyUps

Pampers Easy Ups {Review & Giveaway} #PampersEasyUps

Disclosure: This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Potty training can feel like such a pain in the behind (pun intended!) but it doesn't need to be. I have four kids and each one has been so different when it comes to eliminating diapers and switching to big girl or boy panties. 

I thought for sure that I would have all my kids potty trained at eighteen months, then when I had my first child and she refused to potty train, I realized that maybe I didn't know much about potty training. 

As the years went on, I have taken ideas and tricks from my friends and off the internet and have put them to the test with my own kids. 


Potty Training Tricks!

1. The first thing that we found to be successful and has helped make the transition is reading books about going to the potty and getting them familiar with what is involved with switching from diapers to undies! This is such a fun and exciting time, and what better then to cuddle up and read a book! 

2. Switching to Pampers Easy Ups Training Pants so they can easily pull them up and down on their own. Kids thrive when they get to make their own choices and do things on their own. My kids love going to the store and picking out their very own training pants. It perks their interest and makes them way more excited to start.

3. Make sure they have a stool to rest their feet on so they don't get tired and to help them balance while sitting down. If it's not comfortable for them they may get discouraged.

4. Lastly, get a potty seat that is comfortable and has handles. Handles allows them to get on and off easily.

Having the right tools and waiting until your child is ready can make potty training a lot less stressful and a lot more fun for you and your kids. 


Join the Party!

Please join @Pampers on April 21st from 9-10pmEST as they host a Twitter Party with Dr. Laura Jana, pediatrician, award-winning parenting book author and potty training expert who co-authored to Its You and Me Against the Pee…and the Poop, Too!

  6. When I started my daughter potty training, I used a mini-Elmo potty seat, which we kept in the living room, since she spent the most time there. I gradually moved it closer and closer to the bathroom, and eventually we worked our way up to a Dora seat that went right on top of the toilet. This really helped me be successful with her potty training!

  24. Not giving up is the best advice I was given! At times I would think my Son was not ready and revert back which of course did not help either of us.

    Using A Reward System. It Was A Huge Help And Very Encouraging.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Patience. Nothing I've tried works except patience. Although it all depends on your kid. The reward system wasn't needed for my 1st (he was easy to potty train), and didn't work for my 2nd. The only thing I noticed that helped with both was having patience.

  45. My biggest advice is to be patient. Every kid is different. Different things work with different kids. I read so many different books and articles giving tips. Don’t give up. You’ll get there eventually. Just keep trying! Julie smartsavvymama@gmail.com

  51. This worked for us, involve daddy in the the potty training process. When we were potty training our son, my hubby got our son matching “manly-man” underwear, they would spend Saturday mornings, lounging in their t-shirts/undies, watching cartoons. My son would also follow him into the bathroom. We had him trained in no time, thanks to the father/son bonding time.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Take cues from the child as to when they are ready to potty train as each child is different and may not potty train at the same age as other siblings.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What has always worked for us is praising the successes and overlooking the nots.
    thank you
