“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pull-Ups. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
About a month ago, I shared that I was Taking My 3rd Potty Training Adventure as a Pull-Ups First Flush Ambassador and was starting the process of preparing my youngest for this journey.
Since then my husband and I have been talking to our little one about where to go the bathroom (AKA where the poop and the pee go), letting him flush the toilet, and also doing the “Potty Dance”.
In the meantime, I also received a package with Pull-Ups for Boys. This was an exciting day because Little Man started using his “Big Boy Pants”. What was really awesome is, they feature one of his favorite Vroom Vroom toys, Lightening McQueen.
He was eager to put them on, and I have been letting him wear them around the house. This was a seamless transition, and he just went right back to his usual daily activities and play time.
One thing that is new for me is “potty training round” is the FREE Big Kid App now called the Time To Potty App. Available for Apple and Android smart phones this app offers rewards, videos & songs, and a Big Kid checklist to help with the nighttime routine.
FYI, if you would rather use a PC, the Big Kid Academy is also available with tools to aid in Potty Training.
We are still navigating our way through this App but one of the neat things I like is the FREE Disney Character Call. I tried this out last night, and since my guy is a fan of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse I selected a call from Minnie.
The expressions on all of my children’s faces were priceless, and my daughter asked, “Was that really Minnie Mouse?”.
So far things are going well, and Little Man seems to be catching on to the concept. He has been sitting on the potty with his “Big Boy Pants” and even goes to grab one when it is time for a changing.
In addition, when I see him going to the bathroom, I help him associate this with potty by putting him on it as he is going in the Pull-Up.
I don’t expect my youngest to take to Potty Training immediately, however I intend to make this a fun and stress free experience in hopes that the process is a success.
What routines or rituals have you practiced to make potty training fun and rewarding for your little one? What were some of the obstacles you encountered as you were going through this process.
