Five Simple Steps for Potty Training with Pampers Easy Ups

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Potty training is a monumental milestone for both toddlers and parents. It is the first step of independence for toddlers and a true testament to parents’ dedication. While this time is very exciting, it can often be accompanied by stress and uncertainty by both parents and toddlers. Make the most of your potty training experience by partnering with Pampers Easy Ups and following these five simple steps for potty training.

  1. Stay Consistent. Once you decide to start the potty training process, stick to it! It’s a big step and very time consuming so make sure you are ready. Keep anyone who is a caregiver for your child in the loop including spouses and daycare providers.
  2. Take trips often. It’s still a new concept to notify someone before they have to “go”. Make frequent bathroom visits throughout the day (once an hour at first), especially after any meals or drinks. Ask if they have to go potty before you take them, this way when they do go, they can make a connection to a response of “yes/no” for the question “do you have to go potty?”
  3. Make it fun! Create an exciting environment in the bathroom by making up a pee pee or poo poo song (or dance). Buy special soap they can use when washing their hands after going potty. Get them special training pants- like Pampers Easy Ups-that are more underware-like and easily pull on and off.
  4. Be prepared for accidents and use training pants. Training pants are perfect to keep messes off clothing, bedding and other surfaces. Accidents will happen more often than not,  but don’t let it be a setback. Its important to continue to encourage your toddler and not focus on the failed attempts. Never scold for an accident, and even after an accident, bring them to the potty so they make the connection of where to go next time.
  5. Celebrate! Any successful attempt to go on the potty is cause for celebration. Give lots of praises, high fives, and claps. Make it the “new” exciting news to share!
