Teaching young kids to use the toilet can be an adventure. Having potty trained both of my kids in recent years, I know what works and what doesn’t. Today, I’m sharing with you some of my best tips and tricks for a successful potty training experience. From ensuring that the timing is right to using Pampers Easy Ups training underwear, keep reading to find out my five best tips for an easy transition to underwear.
In order to facilitate our underwear training experience, Pampers sent us a super cool Pampers gift box. My daughter, Charlotte, helped me open the package. Check out our unboxing video below!
We were so excited to get our gift box filled with Pampers Easy Ups training underwear! The box had a mirror and some cute sounds. My daughter really loved opening it repeatedly!
Underwear Training: Five Tips for an Easy Transition
1. Set up a routine: When it comes to potty training, I have found that a predictable routine is best. For example, my toddler knows that when she first wakes up, it’s time to use the potty. When she comes home from being outdoors for a while, it’s time to use the potty. Creating predictable expectations helps to improve the odds of a smooth, successful potty training experience.
2. Incorporate rewards: The fact is that kids really respond to treats. Having an incentive to use the potty really helps motivate them. In fact, when the child knows that successfully using the potty will result in a fun reward, she is much more likely to try to make that happen. Don’t want to give the kids candy? No problem! You can use stickers, temporary tattoos, small toys, play dough, crayons, etc.
3. Focus on timing: When it comes to potty training, timing is everything. Make sure that your child is physically and emotionally ready to start the process of underwear training. He/she should be able to communicate a need to use the potty, show an interest in the potty/toilet, and display an ability to remain dry for a significant amount of time.
4. Have the right attitude: Even if all the elements of potty training are there, potty training is always an adventure. Accidents will happen- it’s inevitable. Make sure you’re ready for them and make sure you keep a positive outlook at all times.
5. Use Pampers Easy Ups: Having the right products on hand will be crucial to the success of a potty training experience.

They look, fit and feel just like real underwear, but they have that amazing leak protection offered by Pampers products.
