Every child is different.
Every. Single. One.
One child may show potty training interest early and sail through with ease; another may show no apparent interest at all! Some children may even need a little extra “tutoring” when it comes to Potty Training! One thing you can count on is that they won’t be in diapers forever!
When your Toddler starts showing signs of being interested in potty training (usually at around 18 – 24 months), don’t be nervous! I know it can be sad when you realize that, in just 2 short years, the little baby you embraced so lovingly has become a mobile, independent, evolving little terror toddler!
Potty training clearly marks the end of the “baby” or “infant” stage. Just think: your diaper buying days are nearly done! Your child not being dependent on you for a clean bum marks a huge shift in parental responsibilities. It can be challenging and tiresome if you don’t know what to expect for what comes next!
That’s why I love what Huggies has done by creating the Huggies Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy. It’s a potty training curriculum designed to help you (and your toddler) overcome any fears you may have about Potty Training. The Big Kid Academy is full of resources and information you can use to help you (and your toddler) be successful Big Kid Academy graduates and, best of all, it’s absolutely FREE!
You simply visit https://www.pull-ups.com and create an account. Then set up a profile for your child. There’s an option to create multiple profiles if you have more than one child. Big Kids Academy will take you though each step in your potty training journey, from the “Almost Ready” stage to “End in Sight!”
You can create fun interactive news stories of your toddler’s progress through potty training or listen to one of the fun potty dance songs! My threenager really loves the Reggae Trent version!
The Time to Potty App is very easy to use; you can set reminders to take your toddler to try and potty. Hey, we are moms… We get busy and can easily forget. One of the keys to successful potty training is consistency and remembering to take frequent potty breaks! With every try there is a fun celebration game to play… because every potty break deserves a celebration!
The Pull-Ups Learning Designs Training Pants with New Disney designs (featuring characters like Lightning McQueen and Ariel) pull on and off like real pants, making it easy for your child to be independent. The Learning Designs have unique patterns that will fade when wet to let you know if your child is dry. The Cool Alert training pants have a unique cooling effect in seconds of getting wet to help your child learn to stay dry.
Pull ups training pants really helped my toddler feel confident when he realized he didn’t like the cooling effect. He would immediately come and let me know he had an accident. It made him much more aware. It didn’t take long for him to Graduate from the Big Kids Academy at all. Huggies Pull-Ups made potty training much less stressful and fun for both of us!
Using training pants after diapers is the next natural stage towards your toddler mastering their independence. It’s an exciting developmental milestone to achieve. By using the tools available on the Big Kid Academy site and the Pull-Ups Time to Potty App, my toddler became fully day-trained in no time! We still use Pull-Ups at night time for now… and the past few nights he’s been waking up totally dry!
Even if you think you may not be ready yet, sign up at the Huggies Big Kid Academy and download the Time to Potty App. Take the Signs Readiness Quiz; see what your next steps are—you may be surprised!
