5 Tried and True Potty Training Tips from Moms

This past weekend was one for the record books. While we get the chance to do fun things often, this time it was for an even greater purpose… potty training! Potty training is a milestone for both parents and children alike, and the potty training party we had this weekend helped to make it even more memorable!

We laughed, played, and learned a whole lot about what makes potty training successful! The coolest thing about this party was that us moms got the chance to share a few tips and tricks to make the whole process as smooth as possible. Here are a few you’ll want to use for your potty training adventure!

Our potty training party was in partnership with Pampers. All thoughts are my own.

Enlist Help

Toddlers look up to their big sisters, cousins, and friends a lot and love to emulate everything they do. If you can get an older sibling, friend, or family member to help get them excited about taking the potty training step into being a big girl or boy, they’ll be even more excited than when mommy or daddy tells them about it!

Pay Attention to The Readiness Signs

We had plenty of potty dances going on throughout the party. Hopping from foot to foot when they have to go is an excellent sign that your child understands when it’s time to hit the body! Other signs of readiness include your child showing signs of discomfort in soiled diapers, and beginning to change their clothes all by themselves.

Practice Makes Perfect

Introducing the potty chair can make some kids nervous. Don’t worry, they’ll warm up to it soon. Make sitting on the potty fun, and allow them to play on it and get familiar with it so they’ll feel more comfortable when it’s time to go.

Toss The Diapers

Once you decide to embark on the journey of potty training, the diapers must go! Make a bit production of tossing the diapers out, and bringing in the Pampers Easy Ups! Pampers Easy Ups feel more like big kids undies, and allow your toddler to pull them up and down like regular undies… while still providing you with a level of protection against accidents during this transitional stage.

Celebrate Success

I know it can be stressful, but this is an exciting time! Help your toddler celebrate each and every potty success and make a huge deal about each one! Not only will they feel good about it, you will too! Before you know it, they’ll be going to the potty like a pro!

    We enlisted help from our preschool and it really helped! They we're awesome at supporting our efforts when both were away from home and helped with positive incentives for doing well. Reply

    I never threw a potty party for my kids. I just waited until they are ready. Usually when they could tell me that they needed to be changed. My youngest I ended up having to let him run around naked for a few days. It worked like a charm. Reply

    These are really useful potty training tips. I love your potty and am sure the grand kids would as well. When Abby starts squirming, I head her to her potty. Reply

    I think these are all some great tips. The thing that worked great for both of my daughters, was to put them right in undies. They had accidents of course, but they learned really quick after that. Reply

    I remember my oldest loved getting rewarded for using the potty. My other 2 potty trained quickly because of the oldest. Reply
