I've partnered with Pampers for this sponsored post. Thank you for supporting Baby Meets City!
With two small children in the house, we've gone through our fair share of diapers in the last five years. And now that Vivian is in the final stages of potty training (she only wears an easy up at night), with the help of Pampers I thought it might be fun to have a little party for a few of our friends and their kids who are in varying stages of potty training. We all know the road to underpants can be a long, wet (!) and challenging one, so why not just celebrate where we are now, right?
We had so much fun! Vivi's little friends will be moving into training pants soon, so she had a good time showing them their goodie bags: new easy up training pants & a potty training book! We celebrated this milestone over muffins, popcorn & fruit (kid food staples) & the other moms & I commiserated over this "journey" that can at times seem never-ending.
Here's a couple things I've learned about Pampers & through the experience myself:
- You can't push them! When your child is ready, he/she will let you know. If you try to start before they're ready, you'll be investing in a lot of paper towels.
- Easy Ups are a great "diaper-to-underwear" transition. Their underwear-like design is encouraging to kids while keeping accidental messes off clothing, bedding, etc.
- A little bribery never hurt anyone. Vivian has definitely been encouraged to use the potty when I've told her she could have a special treat afterwards. It's all about making it a routine!
- Pampers Easy Ups has an absorbent core that holds 25% more than other leading training pants to help ensure little ones remain dry. And with 12 hours of protection, it works during the day and NIGHT, which is key for us.
- Starting the potty training process in summer is ideal: the less clothes you have to deal with, the better!
Wherever you are in the process, I wish you luck! Just remember positive reinforcement is so important. And, accidents happen. But they happen less with Pampers, fortunately!
