Potty Training Tips and tricks with Pull-Ups #SayAdiosToDiapers

Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Pull-Ups® Training Pants and Latina Bloggers Connect. However all thoughts and opinions are still all my own.
Last week I talked to you about this amazing Luncheon I went to with a great group of Latina bloggers as we had fun sharing about our potty training journey. Well this week I wanted to share with you some more in depth information on potty training and the benefits of using pull-Ups during your potty training journey.

My potty training journey was a pretty rough one. I felt alone and didn't have any friends to ask for advice so I constantly ran into new speed bumps in the journey. When it finally worked it seemed like a miracle and we never looked back. So here are some awesome tips that helped me on my journey and hopefully will help you as well!
Potty training tips and tricks plus the benefits of using Pull-Ups Training Pants during your journey:

1. Wait until your child is ready! Look for cues in your childs behavior and development and see if potty training is even something that can be put on the list. Check out the Pull-Ups website "The Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy" and check out the resources they have available for parents with questions on if your child is ready to start this journey. Using Pull-Ups during potty training is better than diapers so that your child will already develop the feel of pulling the Pull-Up up and down with its stretchy sides so that it mimics the routine of the goal which is underwear. 

2. Once you do start potty training... be consistent! Dont stop and give you child the idea that its ok to start and stop. Stick to the plan and be sure to spread the message to all family and friends plus those involved with caring with your child that you are Potty training. Getting everyone on the same page is valuable since you want your child to see that everyone is on board and this is really happening. 

3. Make potty training special! Go out and buy a potty and pull-ups with favorite characters to make it fun. Get some rewards such as stickers and candy. To make it even more helpful Pull-Ups come in a variety of sizes to fit your little ones depending on there weight. You can get gender specific pull-ups or night time designs and even ones with learning designs. My kiddo loved the variety and it made it a special event. Moms can even take the celebration with them with the Big Kid app on a mobile device. It has lots of fun features for the both of you to check out. 

4. Overall dont stress out! This potty training journey is different for each parent and child. Every child learns and grows in there own way and will get there at there own pace and its our job to remain calm and positive for them so that they see that no matter all the opsies and accidents that we are proud of them and here for them as they get there. 


I hope these tips help you and your family to get on the right journey. Dont be discouraged if your child doesnt want to be potty trained just yet. Let them let you know when the time is right. Reach out to other moms for help and remember that they will figure it out. One day you will miss those diapers just like I do when I see my big boy, so cherish each day during this adventure!

  1. You definitely can't stress about it. There are so many stops and starts when you first begin potty training and it can be so frustrating for everyone. But, take it one day at a time and start over as many times as you have to and eventually your little one will be finished!

  2. I remember helping my mom Potty train my youngest siblings! Oh the stories I could tell :D I think by the time my mom got to the 5th and 6th kid, potty training had definitely lost a lot of the stressful side :)

  3. They all will be trained on their own pace, so relax.

  4. Good post! I'm down to my last child for potty training -- you're so right consistency is the key.

  5. Consistency is the key! Back when my kids were small, we were pressured to have them completely potty trained by the age of 2. It's amazing how things have changed for the better. Great advise!

  6. To piggy back on what Tara said above...my mom reminded me that I don't know a single adult who doesn't use the potty nor any adult who still sleeps with their parents. :-)

  7. I think #1 is the key! Too many times I see moms who want it done, but if they aren't ready, it's just not going to work as well.
