One of these days I WILL be able to consider all of my kids fully potty trained, and will have no need to purchase diapers, pull-ups or bed mats, but for now, that is now where I am. I am happy to be able to rely on said products, to get me through this time. Can you imagine if we didn’t have these supplies, what a mess we’d have to clean up? I don’t even want to think about it.
I have been working on potty training my youngest for nearly a year now. We are well past celebrating that first flush, but many of you are just headed in that direction. When we began potty training, I tried a slew of ways to celebrating successes on the potty. One of the big things we did was purchase a pack of Tinker Bell fairies. Each time Little Girl had a poopy on the toilet, we rewarded her with a fairy. My boys called them the “poop fairy”. 😉 Using these for successes was a nice reward for her, but I can’t say that it got her to do it every single day. It took her quite a while to earn them, but it did happen.
Potty training can be a challenge for all parties involved. Little Girl has an accident about once a week, and sometimes more, but we are still not out of the woods for getting night dry. I have a feeling we’re quite a ways away from that. Because I also have friends working on potty training, and have a long way to go still, I plan to host a Pull-Ups “Why Wait – Let’s Celebrate! First Flush Party”. We will have loads of fun with our little ones, and getting them excited about potty training. You too can sign up to host your own Pull-Ups party! Signups are only through the end of the December, so be sure to do it now!
I’d love to hear your successes and challenges with potty training, as well!
