Starting to potty train with Pampers Easy Up Underware #pamperseasyup

girls-pack-shotWelcome to the world of toddlers that amazing time when they’re still soooo cute and the things that come out of their mouth are heart meltingly cute too. There just one thing thats not fun about this time of raising a child, which is the potty training time.

I’m not a fan of changing diapers (but I’ve still changed my fair share!). I really dont love potty training, maybe its because everyone has an thought of which way is the best, or telling you to attempt to potty train way to early.

Our middle child Harper is now 3.5 years old and we are well away its past the point in time she should be potty trained or at the very least attempting to train.  She’s been in diapers long enough.

Pampers has an awesome website with amazing resources to help you decide if now is a good time to start potty training with your child.  Kids will love the new Dora and Thomas the Train designs, and Hello Kitty will be hitting shelves soon enough.bbcx06297214_silk6_kv_dora

The new Easy Ups look and feel like cotton underwear. With the 360 degree stretch waist, they are easier to get on and off. If there is an accident don’t worry! Parents can easily tear away the sides and change their kids. Easy Ups are the only training underwear with Extra Absorb Channels to help prevent leaks day and night!

Parenting Struggles? There’s an APP for that!

3 General - 1 Kiddie's world sleeping and openingshot - Kiddie AppAs a dad of a three year old boy and one on the way, the wife and I decided it was time to get the little guy potty trained before his sister joined the party.  That being said, like most 3 year olds Brady is a very stubborn kid, so we knew we were about to endeavor on a challenging journey.  Wow were we wrong and that’s for one reason, the Kiddie App!

As you know, there are literally millions of mobile apps with little purpose or value, but the same can’t be said for the Kiddie App.   We scoured the iTunes App store searching for potty training tips and that’s when we realized there is no app out there that covers bedtime, dinner time and potty training – all in one.

Every parent has a difficult time coping with the challenges of raising toddlers, especially when it comes  the dreaded potty training, but now Kiddie App provides parents with a fun and educational tool to make everything a bit easier.

The app is jam-packed with interactive stories and sing-a-long songs which will help children learn the desirable behaviors.  Best of all, using the Reward Charts can motivate your toddler and at the same time, we were able to share their progress with family and friends on Facebook.

Best of all, the app itself is FREE and you can buy a few additional stories for a few bucks!

Any parent, that’s about to enter the world of potty training should definitely check out Kiddie App!

Here’s some quick Q&A for tips

Q. My child was having potty training success but suddenly decided that he/she no longer wants to use the potty. How can we get back on track?
A. A child may begin to demonstrate a power struggle with a parent, where the child wants to take control of the potty training process. Consider taking a break from mentioning the potty training to your child, and focus on other developmental milestones. You may find that your child takes control of the situation on his/her own altogether and has consistent potty training success.

Q. My child has no interest in potty training. What we can do to get him/her interested?
A. Some children, even at the age of 3, just aren’t ready to begin the potty training process. Try looking for your child’s cues on when they might be ready, as there really is no magic age for beginning the process, and consider beginning potty training at that point. It may even take the encouragement of a grandparent, teacher or other mentor to get your tot motivated.

Q. What can my family do to make potty training less stressful and more fun for my child?
A. You can begin making the process more light-hearted from the get-go simply by ensuring your approach isn’t so serious. Celebrate your child’s achievements by dancing or providing them a reward, like stickers or candy, and have a good time. Although potty training can be hard work, try to relax, avoid putting pressure on yourself and your child, and trust that success will happen eventually.
