Starting Our Potty Training Journey {$250 Value Giveaway!}

Pull ups

We have just started the potty training journey with our 2 1/2 year old son and it is perfect timing as June marks Potty Training Awareness Month. Our son is definitely ready, he talks about going potty all the time and often lets me know when he has to get a diaper change.

We received a Pull-Ups® Potty Partnership Toolkit that has been fantastic to help set us up for success. The Pull-Ups® Potty Partnership launched earlier this year and it offers a whole new way to potty train. It was created in partnership with renowned child psychologist and potty training expert, Dr. Heather Wittenberg and it’s tailored to work with every child’s unique personality, on their schedule and according to how they learn.

mickeyI completed their free, online quiz, and received personalized tips and advised based on my son’s personality. He is a little “Owl” and he is determined, busy and predictable. We just started our journey this week and so far we are doing pretty well with fewer and fewer daily accidents, it is so exciting!

Wondering about your own little one’s potty training personality? Complete the free quiz and find out if they are a Squirrel, Bear Cub, Puppy, Owl or Turtle.

I love that the toolkit has made it super easy for us to get started. The Pull-Ups®Training Pants are great when going to the bathroom so many times during the day and they actually feel cool within seconds of becoming wet, to help him learn when it’s time to go potty. The flushable wipes are great help as well when he wants to wipe himself, as he is learning to do it himself and be independent.

The Fisher Price potty seat has also been a big hit as it plays a song every time he goes potty, he loves that actual musical reward after going potty. He is also a big fan of stickers and the chart to track progress has been a great visual help for both of us.

Finally, he LOVES Mickey and was so excited to see the plush toy. He knows I am saving it as a reward for when he completes all of his stickers and he talks about it daily, he is really looking forward to getting his Mickey Mouse at the end of his potty training journey. We can’t wait to go shopping for some underwear as well. He has already requested Mickey Mouse underwear.

    Footloose and fancy free, Bear Cubs would rather be playing and exploring than settling down to learn to use the potty. Bear Cubs tend to be friendly and relaxed when trying new things and we know exactly how to potty train them.
