So I have been putting off potty training my daughter for some time now because the task just seems so daunting. I have been pinning tips from Pinterest like crazy and finally am ready to tackle the task at hand.
Step One: Getting the supplies needed.
- Potty Chair that is easy and comfortable to sit on.
- Pampers Easy Ups
- Potty Chart
- Potty App with Timer
- Lots of entertainment!
Step Two: Introducing the Potty Chair. I purchased the potty chair a few weeks ago and placed it in the bathroom. When my daughter goes to the bathroom with me I tell her that's your potty so you can pee pee and poop. I showed her how to sit on it. First I started with just her sitting on it unopened and with clothes on. Then she sat on it opened with clothes on. For the past few days I had her sit down before she takes a bath with no clothes on.
Step Three: Bring Out the Pampers Easy Ups! I explained to my daughter that these are big girl diapers and that they are made to make it easy to go potty. I showed her how easy it is to pull them down whenever she has to go potty. I chose Easy Ups because they have incredible leak protection even overnight and while we are out during summer time. Easy Ups absorbent core also holds 25% more than the other leading training pants so that means fewer leaks! I also love that they look more like underwear and have cute graphics like Dora which my daughter loves!
Step Four: Set Your Timer. I use the Pull Ups App and set a 45 minute timer. We just scan one of our pull ups with my smartphone and get to celebrate every potty break! We have books, coloring books, crayons and little toys right by the potty so she can entertain herself while she sits on the potty to wait and go.
