Hey Beavs! As you know, I am a mother and my daughter has reached the stage of potty training. Oh how I dreaded this day lol. Toddlers don't like to do much sitting so with the help of Huggies Pullups I will be sharing with you some tips and tricks on how I am slowly but surely potty training my daughter.
Tip #1: Books and Toys
Like most toddlers, sitting down is a very hard task. When there is so much for them to discover and play with staying still just makes no sense. I like to keep toys or her LeapPad near her potty so she is entertained but will stay seated. This way eventually something will come out.
Tip #2: Juice is your Best Friend
That's right, use juice or water to your advantage. Give your child a drink and wait about 30 minutes before placing them on the potty. It may take a few tries and a few drinks before they get the hang of it.
Tip #3: You Potty, I PeePee
When you need to go, try bringing your toddler with you. My daughter's potty moves between the bathroom and her bedroom. Sometimes when it is time for me to go, I bring her in as well. We sit and chat and she watches what I do. Doing this shows your child what they are supposed to do when it comes to the potty.
Now that I have shared some of the tricks I have been using to get my daughter potty trained let's talk about the training diapers. To be honest, when I was a preteen I hated Huggies Pullups. For some reason my sister's would always burst and you would find this wet jelly all throughout the house. That was the main reason I swore I would never use Pullups when I had a child of my own.
Then that dreaded day came when Huggies was cheaper than the Pampers and I could not resist the sale. So I grabbed them and decided to give them a try. I am so glad that I did! The Pullups have improved so much since I last dealt with them. They have tear away sides that allow you you to remove the diaper very easy without a mess. They also fit extremely snug and just like a panty. I haven't experienced any jelly on my daughter or around the house so that is a plus too. It also has a cooling system that tell your toddler their diaper is full. I often catch my daughter tugging or pulling at her trainers and that is how I know it is full.
Extremely glad that I was chosen for this voxbox and I was even more surprised when I realized it was a box of trainers and not just a few to test out. Shout out to Influenster for looking out for the mommies and saving us a few bucks for the next 2 to 3 weeks lol.
