It is really hard not to get stressed out when potty training. With Jude I asked everyone how to potty train and stressed myself out. Probably made him stressed too. Lovely. This time around I feel like the whole family is more relaxed and ready for the training on a new level.
Stress-Free Potty Training Tips
Be Patient: I have heard about the Potty Training in 3 days it is totally appealing but again, every child is different. Be patient. Leave your anger and frustration outside of the bathroom. It will not help anyone for you to get upset or impatient.
Training Pants: Let your child learn with Pull-Ups® training pants. These easy on and off pants make potty training a lot easier. Teagan totally gets what a diaper is – “for a baby” which means when we put Pull-Ups® on every morning she feels like a big girl. She isn’t ready to just be in big girl underwear, but with these Pull-Ups® she feels older. She can pull them on and off on her own and the cute Disney designs make her happy!
What Potty Training Tips would you give others?
Julie Baswell says
Potty training in 3 days. I think that's wishful thinking, lol. I do like the sticker approach.
Masshole Mommy says
I did a sticker chart when my boys were training, but what really worked with them were prizes.
We are way beyond the potty years in our home, but these are some great tips!
Potty training is such a strange time of life and is amusing once it's all behind you (hee hee)
I seriously need to print this out and send for my grandson who is in the throes of potty training!
Maria Long says
We never thought of the sticker route, mainly gave the kids candy…. guess that might have been less stressful.
Good job Teagan!
Pull ups make potty training SO much easier. We used sticker charts with our kids too.
It's been a long time since I had to potty train anyone. I do remember making a big deal out of it when we did.
She looks so excited and is ready to rock and roll. Good luck, mama!
Kelly Hutchinson says
Potty training for us was relatively easy. We used rewards and that seemed to work for us. Patience is huge as well.
I could have used this when my kids were little!
Jen B says
This sticker chart is really cute! My little girl is almost 3 and not trained yet but I'm letting her show me when she is ready. She does sit on her potty and pretend to go LOL so I guess that is a start!
We were big Pull Ups fans when we were potty training. They saved us big time!
Maggie Burgdorf Roush says
This is really cute! It's so important to celebrate even the little accomplishments.
Good idea. Kids are facinated with stickers.
Lois Alter Mark says
Oh, I am so glad the potty training years are long over! Next will be grandkids'!
Jen Schneider says
I definitely agree with you have to wait for them to be ready! We also let her go on the big potty as soon as she could sit up there comfortably on a special seat.
Liz Mays says
This is such a good incentive idea. I wish I had this printable when my kids were in this stage. Pull-ups definitely helped though.
Such cute pictures to document the process. I wish I'd have used a sticker chart, I bet my son would have loved that (he STILL has a bent for loving stickers).
Rebekah (EpicureanDC) says
This is a great idea. My daughter was always the difficult one, my son on the other hand watched his dad a couple of times and he never looked back.
DeDa Studios says
The stickers are a cute idea – Dawn would of loved using stickers! I sure wish they had pull ups years ago!
Potty-training is so tough on the kids and parents. It's the one part of toddler-hood that we really struggled with when it was Josh's turn. Hopefully Jake will be a little easier on everyone.
Jessica Harlow says
Being patient and encouraging is the best advice! My kiddos love those Disney characters on their training pants too!
Annie Stow says
Stickers charts are great for the kids who need a little motivation! What a big girl! Potty training can be so touch!
Emily Stephens says
Your sticker chart is so cute! The Pull-Ups® training pants look like they were a big hit, too. My son liked them when he was learning – made him feel like a big kid. #client
Sandra Sears says
Sticker charts were how I trained my first son . It helped when he saw just how many times he had went in a day plus he really enjoyed placing the stickers himself. 🙂 Good Job to your Little one!
Danielle Leigh says
Stress free potty training? Yes please, sign me up! 😉
Amanda Love says
Be very very patient which is one that you've highlighted. I'm still in the potty training process with my little one and she's almost 3.
Becca Wilson says
We did candy rewards when my son was potty training BUT that is not working well with my 2 year old daughter right now. Might have to try a sticker chart!
Cynthia Alford says
We did the 3 Day Potty Training Method ( kidpottytraining. com ). It worked great for both of my kids. It was a lot of work for 3 days but after the 3 days – my kids were both trained day and night (the poop took a little longer than the 3 days).
