Potty Training Tips with Pampers Easy Ups #PampersEasyUps *Giveaway closed* {Plus Twitter Party Info} #DDDivas #sponsored

I can’t believe that Shelby is over two years now and the past month we have been working on potty training. We have had her own potty since her 2nd birthday but she showed no interest in it until this past month. She loves her little potty and will use it all day long if she is not wearing any bottoms. I figured that now we need to get the potty training while using Pampers Easy Ups. I was trying to just use cotton undies but I think she was thinking they were her cloth diapers so the Easy Ups will be easier for us to use while we potty train.

We used Pampers Diapers the past two years along with our cloth diapers so I already like the brand. I was confident that the Easy Ups would work for us and helping Shelby feel like a big girl. We have not had any leak issues, or out of the norm. rashes with the Easy Ups and she LOVES that they have Dora on them!  Papers Easy Ups come in both pink for girls and blue for boys.

Shelby is my third daughter to potty training so over the years I have found a few tips and tricks that have helped with my kids. They might not work for everyone but they did for us.

The first thing we id was got Shelby (and each of our kids) their own little potty. After they mastered their little potty we had them use the big potty. For us I think my kids liked having a little potty to sit on, it wasn’t big and intimidating and no loud sounds.  Shelby usually runs to her potty when she needs to go and yells “potty” She is very excited and happy with herself after she goes and we all give her tons of praise and clapping. Toddlers love that encouragement.

You can also have fun toys and books for encouragement. The Potty Time with Elmo is a great book that toddlers can push the buttons for sounds and learn about the potty.

Don’t forget about when you are on the go! Toddlers learning to potty train need consistence. so be sure to stock your car with Easy Ups and even a portable potty. So many times we have been out and about and the convenience of having an on the go potty was great. Keep a package of Lysol wipes to keep it clean and extra baggies and you are good to go.

We also have mini m&ms and while not everyone is ok with bribing we have used them for every time they go #2 in the potty they get one m&m. We never had to use the bribing with Sarah our middle child as she took to potty training in a matter of a few days. It really comes down to you, your family and the child.

    total emursion stay home for 3 days and basically take the potty everywhere you go in the house untill you have a few success’s

  2. Kristie says:

    Make sure they’re showing signs of being ready before attempting potty training.

  3. Cassandra Eastman says:

    I set a timer with my son, and gave him a reward when he went. I’ve tried a sticker chart as well with my daughter i’m training now.

  4. Jessica Beard says:

    Start potty training when you child is ready. Make it fun by creating fun songs and dances to celebrate when your child has gone on the potty.

  5. Deb Jackson says:

    My advice is start early, make it fun and be consistent.

  6. Linda Lansford says:

    When they are ready it will happen.

  7. Sara Floyd says:

    This is my first time, and we are taking it slow at her speed

  8. Lilyana Cruz says:

    my son is 2 years. So start now, will begin to take him to the bathroom every 30 minutes, get used to that and slowly learn. We require a lot of patience and perseverance!

  9. nickie says:

    Rewards are nice during training, but always be patient.

  10. betsy says:

    being consistent is most important

  11. April says:

    I’m potty-training twins for the first time and I’ve heard, wait till they are ready and ask every 2 hours.

  12. brooke t says:

    we got luck and our 1st didnt want diapers … we also asked daycare not to reward him.

  13. April Brenay says:

    it might not happen as fast as you like, its a trial and error first couple weeks.

  14. Tarah says:

    I waited until he was ready to potty train, not when everyone else was. His peers were doing it & I was frustrated he wasn’t. I backed off until he approached us and wanted to try. It was super easy after that!

  15. courtney hennagir says:

    Don’t push too hard,it will backfire! Keep talking about it though.They will do it when they are ready.

  16. julie says:

    have plenty of clorox wipes available!

  17. Jennifer Tilson says:

    The best tip I have is to consistently put the little one on the potty every hour.

  18. Em Ma says:

    Have lots of patients and give tons of positive reinforcement! My little one really liked putting stickers on a chart to track his progress

  19. Aly says:

    We haven’t really started potty training yet – we’re easing into it. We’ve found that m&m’s have been a great incentive for my son though!

  20. Katherine says:

    Trying to find the perfect time to start is the hardest part so neither of you gets frustrated

  21. daisy says:

    plenty of clorox wipes lol

  22. Ashley H says:

    I’ve heard giving treats or prizes help.

  23. Nannypanpan says:

    I did a sticker chart and it helped a little. What really helped was he saw a cartoon character he liked wearing undies. He was trained in days after that

  24. Stacey B says:

    My tip is to have lots of patience. Potty training takes time and persistence!

  25. Monique Rizzo says:

    Use cheerios in the toilet for little boys to practice aiming.

  26. Leela says:

    Treats like cupcakes worked for my son.

  27. Megan says:

    I like to do sticker charts as rewards.

  28. Brandy W says:

    Patience is key and trying to “make it fun and their idea”… making sure they are really ready to “be a big boy/girl” before starting with all the pressure!

  29. Shayna says:

    We are in the process of potty training and I have found that it is important to be patient and consistent.

  30. Jill Myrick says:

    I have found that offer an incentive such as a sticker for a sticker chart or a gold star for the chart on the fridge seems to help the most.


  31. Kim Ripley says:

    Use waterproof mattress covers.

  32. mrsshukra says:

    Praise and rewards work!

  33. Brittney House says:

    My kids responded well to rewards.

  34. Erica C. says:

    Be consistent.

  35. Tanya White says:

    We made up a potty training song.

  36. Cynthia R says:

    We made a prize/reward system but we didn’t punish for accidents.

  37. Peggy Rydzewski says:

    Make a calendar and reward with stars so they can see the progress they are making.

  38. kristy thiel says:

    Definitely wait until they are ready!

  39. Judy Chapman says:

    If you see they are scared of the potty at the time dont try wait and play fun games about the potty until they are cool with it.

  40. Ancilla J. says:

    I didn’t pressure my kids I let them go at there own pace.

  41. tammie venne says:

    I try to keep my little one by singing songs so she doesnt fight to get off the potty

  42. Jo Ann F says:

    You need to be persistent with your child and make potty time a positive thing.

  43. Laurie Emerson says:

    I made some labels with their names on it and put it on their potty chairs. They are so proud them and it really helped.

  44. Katherine Newton says:

    I think the most important advice I ever received and implemented was to not push a child that isn’t ready into potty training. It goes so much smoother if you just wait for the child to give you signs. You’re not going to have a 6 or 7 year-old who still goes in their pants! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  45. christy colln says:

    we were patient and talked about it everyday and a couple bribes were helpful every once in a while 🙂

  46. tina reynolds says:

    Be consistent and patience that is the keys

  47. Sarah L says:

    Never had kids so have no tips.
    Thanks for the contest.

  48. Denise Donaldson says:

    use a reward system

  49. Mihaela Day says:

    My advice is do not start too early

  50. stephanie baker says:

    This will be my first time so have been collecting ideas from my expert friends. So far I like the ideas of waiting until she shows that she is open to the idea, rewards & mainly patience! I hope to spend a few days at home, no going out, to be consistent. Wish us luck!

  51. Stephanie Galbraith says:

    The cheerios in the toilet for target practice.

  52. Karen T Gonyea says:

    Be patient – don’t expect potty training to come easily or over night !! It takes time and patience !!

  53. jules m. says:

    rewards seem to work the best. but my kids were incredibly stubborn. the harder i pusheed them, the more they would refuse to use it lol

  54. Rebecca L says:

    Don’t rush it. Only start when your child is ready if not it will backfire on you.

  55. Francine Anchondo says:

    Wait for them to be ready .

  56. Betty says:

    My mil believed in pottytraining during the summer and letting her kids run commando style. She believed when it ran down their legs it got their attention and they adapted to using the potty very quickly. They she’d smile and say there was a lot less clothes to wash also.
    I’m thinking not everyone has a privacy fence where they can let their kids go clothing optional

  57. susan smoaks says:

    potty training isn’t easy but you don’t have to allow it to make you frustrated. take your time and enjoy yourself as much as possible.

  58. MARIA simon says:

    when all of mine were ready it actually came quickly. they have to be ready 🙂

  59. Candie L says:

    I loved the idea of Cheerios in the potty. Thankyou

  60. Shelley Pittman says:

    Make it fun, be patient and consistent.
