Everything You Need To Know About Potty Training
This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers Easy Ups. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I am officially one month into potty training my youngest and it has suddenly hit me that this is the final time I will be diapering a baby! After successfully potty training two children already, I feel much more confident and less stressed about it than the other times. This potty training journey with my daughter Adeline has been fun and full of special moments. I am so thrilled to share with you not only our journey, but everything you need to know about potty training your child!
Is Your Child Ready For Potty Training?
The first step in your journey is to determine if your child is actually ready to begin potty training. Starting them when they are not quite ready is only setting them up for failure and can have some devastating repercussions. So take a moment to look through these six sings to determine if you are ready to begin potty training:
- Your child doesn’t like a wet or dirty diaper
- Your child likes to take the diaper off and doesn’t want to keep one on
- Your child takes interest in seeing others use the toilet
- Your child tells you he or she is going #1 or #2
- Your child wants to wear underwear like everyone else
- Your child is able to take off and pull on clothing
If you have said yes to all 6 of these signs, then you are ready to begin the potty training journey! So now it’s time to move onto the next step and make a list of everything you need.
Transitioning your child into underwear is a really big deal for every toddler! While the end result is rewarding, the road to get there can be difficult for both parents and kids. No two children will potty train the same, every child’s journey is different, so keeping it simple and laying the proper foundation are essential for success. That starts with the very first pair of training underwear!
The new Pampers Easy Ups are successfully helping us through this journey because they look, fit and feel more like real underwear, with the outstanding leak protection that you’d expect from Pampers. A few features to keep in mind is that they fit like underwear (360 degree stretchy waistband), they feel like underwear (cottony feel on the outside), they look like underwear (Thomas the Train and Dora the Explorer graphics all the way around the pant) and have the proper protection when accidents happen (which they absolutly will and that is OK!)
In my opinion, Pampers Easy Ups are the easiest way to underwear and help your little one succeed during their potty training journey. Starting them off in real underwear is risky because they are going to have accidents and many children get upset and lose their confidence when their accidents result in a big mess. That is why providing them with Pampers Easy Ups is the best option, they can still pull them up and down like underwear, have the comfort of underwear, but the ability to contain their accident when they happen.
