Thank you Target for sponsoring this post today! Excited to share our tried and true potty training tips with y’all today!
The time has come to begin potty training our third child, Shep. He turned three in February and has been showing signs of interest in potty training for a while now. We’ve been quite busy these last 7 months with adjusting to life with our new baby, so potty training was not on our radar until recently. Joel and I decided that the second weekend in April was the perfect time to do it. It was a beautiful weekend and there was a lot of opportunity to be outside bottomless. I’ve found that the key to potty training is having new things for your child to be excited about. For Shep it was treats, new underwear, and new Pj Mask Easy ups from Pampers! Until now, Shep has only gone to bed in diapers,, so he is very excited about his new underwear and nighttime Pj Mask Easy ups that are so soft! Easy Ups are so gentle on toddlers sensitive skin (unlike the velco sides) with a soft 360 stretchy waistband. The stretchy waistband contours to his body giving the best fit! He feels like such a big boy now.
Something we’ve never done before was involve our older children in the process. Honestly, this has been the key to our success with potty training him. A friend of mine advised me to get our older children involved in the treats, giving him his Pampers PJ Masks Easy ups, and picking out underwear. I cannot even tell you how much more excited Shep was when his older siblings encouraged him to go on the potty! He responded so well when they brought him his PJ Masks Easyl Ups for nighttime, helped him pick out new underwear for the day, and when the older kids gave him high fives for using the potty. We also maybe gave our older children a few treats in secret to keep the stamina going 😉
Shep LOVES Pj Masks, so this was such an added bonus when we began the process. He was excited each day to put on underwear, receive treats from his siblings, and then being rewarded with a PJ Mask Easy Ups for bedtime. If you have a girl, Pampers also has Trolls Easy Ups!
Shep has been in Pampers diapers since he was born, and so has our new baby, so choosing Pampers Easy Ups was a no-brainer! The pull ups are SO soft– with a soft 360 stretchy waistband.I’ve done my fair share in purchasing these and not all of them are as soft as the Pampers Easy Ups. The Pampers Easy Ups conform to their body and are also very easy for them to pull up and down. That feature is also key in the early potty training days!
We are so thankful to have Target sponsoring this post today!
