Potty Training with Pull-Ups and a HUGE Giveaway!!

I am working with Pull-Ups for this post. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.

Let’s be honest! Potty training is hard on both kids and parents alike. There can be days that are so frustrating that all you want to do is give up on it and start again the next morning. Believe me as a mom of three small kids, I completely understand. Two of my kids are fully trained (well mostly for the middle guy if you don’t count night) but the baby is almost ready to start.

Taylor, who is 21 months, has been going around the house letting us know that is time to go pee-pee. Sure she says it after the fact but when they say it at all, it is a beginning indication that they are ready. I was so excited to start training her with my go to training pants, Pull Ups, and get started on training my last child!


1. Do not push them! Every child is different when it comes to potty training. My son was under 3 when he was trained, and my oldest was closer to 3.5. If they are not ready, they are just not ready! I know you all don’t want to hear this but take it from a mom who tried to train her child, when they were not having it. It ultimately ended in my child being afraid to go to the potty at all and getting horrible constipation pains. When they are ready, they will let you know! Trust me-it is mother’s intuition at the finest.

2. Stock up on the fun Pull-Ups with their unique and fun designs. Pull-Ups has made potty training so much easier as they don’t feel like a traditional diaper, rather a way for kids to have independence, which they love. When I was potty training my kids, they loved wearing “underwearish” type of diaper, or this is how they referred to it as.Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 2.29.03 PM

With Pull-Ups, it is easy for them to pull up and down when they are ready to use the potty. For parents, they are a cinch to use because you just open the tab to get to take off the Pull-Ups. No more struggling with an active toddler to get them to take it off. I also love the fact that the are super absorbent for both day and night time use. Zane still wears his Pull-Up each night and we hardly have any accidents on the sheets.Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 2.27.36 PM

3. Motivation! Motivate your kids by rewarding them with prizes when they go to the potty. For us, it was Dora stickers that got them to go potty. I kept a basket of them high up in the bathroom and when they used the potty, they were allowed to get one. Each child is different but find the motivation that works for your children.

4. Praise them! Even if the Pull-Up is wet, tell them they are doing a great job! When kids are praised, they are more opt to actually complete the task that is asked at hand. Praising children can go a long way!

Hope you enjoy my tips and good luck on your potty training journey!

    My kid’s 27 months. She’s really toilet training herself — the youngest in her pre-school class, apparently she sees the other kids using the “big kid” potty and doesn’t want to be left out. She’s doing pretty well, as long as you remember to ask her periodically if she needs to go.

  2. Cynthia R says

    I don’t have any kid training age but my sister will in a while. He is still a year old.

  3. karenb says

    Our grandson just turned 2 yrs old on March 3 and he loves Mickey mouse and hates to have his diaper changed, He won’t hold still and runs naked until we can catch him, so I started 6mo ago buying Huggies pull-ups for him and it sure makes it much easier, thanks

  4. elizabeth miller says

    I have 2 granddaughters…both are 2 that we are all trying to potty train.

  5. Hope Mitchner says

    My grandson lives with us and has just turned two. He wants to sit on the potty and no longer wants to wear diapers but hasn’t quit figured out what to do. We are taking out time with him and letting him train on his schedule.

  6. Angelica Dimeo says

    My son is 4 and has Autism and I am trying to get him to be more verbal while training

  7. Angela Hendricks says

    My daughter is 1.5 yrs old. I was going to wait til she was 2.5 but she has already started showing signs that she is ready to potty train, or at least I think she is. She’s taking her diaper off and throwing it in the trash and coming up to me to tell me she has to poo. Although she is giving me the signs and is going potty sometimes, there are still a lot of accidents.

  8. Kristie says

    My nephew is 3. He is partially potty trained. They are working on it. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  9. ellen beck says

    My niece whom I take care of is almost 2. I don’t think she liked poopng in diapers anymore and is going into the bathroom when she has to go and trying to make it in time.

  10. kelly mcgrew says

    my nephew is a newborn! bur before you know it, it will be potty training time!

  11. Heather! says

    My granddaughter is only 15 months old, but we are trying to get her ready as early as possible!

  12. Dawn Monroe says

    I have one granddaughter who just turned 2 and another granddaughter who is 2 1/2. Both are training.

  13. Cassie Hayes says

    My daughter is almost three. She is non verbal so we are trying to get her to sign when she needs to go. She already knows what to do once she’s put on the potty. Just need her to tell me.

  14. Em Mahr says

    My little one is only 14 months, but we’re pushing hard for him to be potty trained!

  15. Talitha orris says

    My 2.5 yr old son is just starting to potty train and loves pulling his pants up and down. This would be absolutely perfect for him!

  16. Lauryn R says

    I actually have 2 children that I am potty training! My son is 3 and we are still working on it, although he is getting a lot better and goes on the potty more often than not. My daughter is 21 months as well! I haven’t quite started with her yet, but she is very in tune with her older siblings (I have a 6 year old girl as well) and is giving me signs that she’s ready! :) I love Pull-Ups as well, my favorite features being the tear open sides and the fact that they aren’t overly scented like other training pants.

  17. Deborah W. says

    We have a two year old granddaughter getting ready to be trained. SHe hasn’t shown any interest so far though.

  18. Jenn H says

    3.5 and hes catching on! but his little sister wants to be just like her big bro and will need a lot more help/time to get it since shes not quite 2!

  19. says

    We’ve potty trained all of our kids with pull-ups and it’s worked out quite well. What I just realized recently though was that we were too reliant on pull-ups for nighttime potty issues. One of our kids went to around 8 years old with pull-ups at night time and I realized she was simply too reliant on them. After finally forcing the issue we’ve finally got rid of her bed-wetting issues at night along with one of our younger sons. Anyway, pull-ups make life easy, just know when it’s time to get rid of them!

  20. Margot C says

    I’m not potty training anyone (and my daughter simply potty trained herself – true story!) but my sister-in-law is (a 2 year old boy).

  21. Wendy O. says

    My son is 3 and incredibly stubborn about this whole potty-training thing. Hoping this might make it more fun!

  22. Laurie Nykaza says

    My little nephew is 2 and is wanting to sit on his own potty chair so these would help so much.

  23. Amanda Stovall says

    My son is 4 years old & he’s been potty trained for a long time, but he’s still wearing Pull-ups at nighttime. I’m starting to worry that we’re never going to make it past this point to where no Pull-ups are needed at all…

  24. Jessica says

    My daughter is 4. She is potty trained during the day, but still needs Pull Ups at night.

  25. Amanda says

    Thanks for the tips. I need all I can get. Just starting to potty train my twin girl’s. It’s rough lol

  26. Jessica Padilla says

    My son is 24 months. He is interested in the potty, so we will be potty training soon.

  27. Leigh Anne Borders says

    Our little guy is 6 months so although we aren’t doing it quite yet, I am getting ready!

  28. Lindsey Khatri says

    He’s 26mo and so far has little to no interest in “going” on the potty LOL I know we’ll get there, but this would sure help!

  29. diana b says

    She is 2 1/2 and sea had been doing really well but is going through a regression right now.

  30. Dotty J Boucher says

    I am actually trying to train two, Noe is 4 and Alyvia is 3 1/2 ,

  31. Tara Liebing says

    My little guy is 22 months, it seems a little early to start for boys but I think he will do great!

  32. hannah says

    I’m not potty training right now, this would actually be for my niece who is about ready to start. I remember my mom had a terrible time training my baby sister, she was not ready until quite late. As you say, if they aren’t ready it just won’t work.

  33. Noelle Carroll says

    My daughter is 10 months and we have been potty training since she was 6 months. Hope she will be completely trained by 18 months

  34. Cathy Coibion says

    My granddaughter is two and doing pretty well with her training. I keep her several nights a week so it is a joint effort with her parents!

  35. Stephanie Larison says

    My youngest is 19 months and is showing interest. She’s gone a few times, but we’re not pushing it.

  36. Jamie Brigham says

    I have a 4 year old and it has been super difficult finding things to encourage potty training. The weird part is that #2 is always in the potty but #1 has been the struggle.
