“Change you!” my little one started saying to me. “Change you!” You know, at first I started to think that she didn’t like the person I was before I figured out exactly what she was talking about. She would tug at her diaper and stare and say “change you!” It’s funny now how long it took me to figure out what she meant because in retrospect it seemed so obvious!
Before I would change her diaper I would ask “Do you want me to change you?” and her little mind grabbed onto that last bit. “Change you!” So she wanted me to change her diaper!
This was the sign we needed to know that she was getting ready and that it’s most definitely #Time2Potty. Though I know there is a long road ahead of us for our little girl, we want to make sure it is a fun process for the both of us. Because of that, we made the promise to start the right way, with her first pair of Pull-Ups and a fun sticker chart to get us both excited (more on that in a bit!).
By starting with Pull-Ups and their underwear-like pant designed for Big Kids, you can help teach potty training skills and symbolize your little one’s transition out of diapers. Once we purchased that first pack, I made a point to ditch the diapers and never look back. If you had tons of stockpiled diapers like me, donating them to a local diaper bank is a great way to make sure other families in need get them instead.
I thought that was such a great way to kick off potty training, which is one of the biggest and most important milestones for a toddler and it’s a great opportunity for parents and kids to work together. Instead of it becoming a daunting task, why not make it fun, right?
While I was doing research on the ways I could make potty training fun, it became so obvious to me that Pull-Ups are so much more than just a training pant. Their website has tons of the info I was looking for on ways to make potty training a simple process that’s also fun. With guidance on how to help ease your child ease into the transition, Pull-Ups help tailor the milestone based on your little one’s unique personality. Through learning all this, it’s no surprise to me that 3 of 4 moms prefer the Pull-Ups©!*
If you are on the potty training journey as well, I highly suggest using this fun Disney Rewards Chart that I found on the Pull-Ups website when I was looking for potty training games and incentives. As you and your Big Kid get started on your training adventure, you can print out this customizable Minnie rewards chart to help keep track of potty progress. Your child can add some color to their chart, you can write in which of their training moments you’d like to highlight and then put a sticker on together for every milestone she achieves! My little girl loves it because Minnie Mouse is one of her favorite characters so it’s more fun and motivating for her.
Another incentive that always seems to work is TOYS. Funny but, a toddler will care more about the smallest and simplest toy over candy any day. My toddler loves little toys she can play with in the bath or in the sand, dirt, water, you name it. One of the biggest rewards is letting her pick out a cute little toy here and there as her reward.
It’s such a joy to help my child learn to use the potty thanks to Pull-Upss. She’s ready to go and I’m excited to keep watching her turn into a more independent big girl. Sometimes change is good.
