I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pull-Ups. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. #PullUpsAcademy
I recently hosted a Pull-Ups Play Date. My pint-sized guests of honor were all Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy hopefuls. They brought their moms along so we could talk about the potty training process. I was excited to share some of the potty training tips I learned on my recent trip to the Pull-ups Big Kid Academy in Wisconsin. You can read more about them at my blog post 5 Things You Should Know about Potty Training.
The moms and I talked about where each one of our children was in the potty training process. The Pull-Ups Academy taught me that every child potty trains differently. I realized that this is so true when the other moms and I started comparing notes. The important thing to remember is that what works for potty training one child may not work for another child. And that’s okay! Parents just have to be patient and keep trying until they figure out what works best for their child.
Meet my Pull-Ups Play Date Guests:
Miss R’s mom says she was not sure when to start potty training. But Miss R showed signs of readiness: “She started telling me when she was going pee-pee and poopy in her diapers…I didn’t want to necessarily start training since she’s still young, but I’m letting her lead the way.”
Potty Training Tips from Miss R’s Mom:
- Read potty-themed children’s books
- Take your child to sit on the potty several times throughout the day. Miss R uses her potty time wisely – she learns to count using her abacus while she sits and waits on the potty!
Potty Training Tips from Miss A’s Mom:
- We get ready for potty training by talking about going to the potty and flushing the potty. Miss A likes to watch the potty flush.
- Tell your child she can be like her big sister if she goes to the potty. (Of course, this would only work if your child has an older sibling.)
Potty Training Tips from Connor’s Mom (that’s me!)
- Be patient. Very patient. It is okay to take a break from potty training and start again when your child is ready.
- Make potty time fun with games and apps.
- Be ready with potty training gear
Everyone who attended our Pull-Ups Play Date got to take home a package of Pull-Ups training pants featuring their favorite Disney characters. I know my Connor gets excited about wearing the Lightning McQueen ones. Pull-Ups have stretchy sides so kids can pull them up and down, just like real underwear. The Pull-Ups character designs fade when wet, which helps kids learn how to stay dry.
The Pull-Ups Starter Kits for boys and girls are shaped like a treasure chest. The outside features Disney Junior characters Jake and the Neverland Pirates (boys) and Doc McStuffins (girls). Inside you’ll find a package of Pull-Ups training pants plus fun training tools: progress chart, 8 reward stickers, free Disney digital book, and a pack of HUGGIES Pull-Ups Big Kids Flushable Wipes. We like to reuse the cardboard treasure chest for fun things like toys and books.
