I want to thank Huggies Pull-Ups for sponsoring our potty training experiences.
Still potty training over here at the Hewlett house, and I can’t say that I see an end in the near future. My little guy is just so darn stubborn! He is getting better though…
The turning point this month has been getting him a potty chair instead of just the potty seat. He is much more willing to sit on that, and I think it’s because of his independent nature. He wants to be able to “do it myself!” Getting on and off the big potty without fear of falling in was raining on his parade a bit.
We also went and saw Monsters U in the theater this month and that really gave him a little more excitement about his Monsters U Pull-Ups. He already loved the characters before, but now he is borderline obsessed. Something about seeing a movie on the big screen really hit home for him.
Potty Training Fun
As far as what we’ve done to make potty training fun, is just make sure we don’t push it too much. We have been letting him take the lead more often, because he seems to be more willing when he’s in charge. When I was pushing him like crazy to sit on the seat, he just pushed back. But now, I ask him if he wants to take a potty break, and if he does, YAY! If no, I don’t say anything else. 9 times out of 10, he will say never mind about five seconds later and go sit on it anyway.
While he is sitting and waiting, he likes stuff to do. We read books, he plays games on the PullUps Facebook page, and sometimes we do crazy hair. He loves getting his hair done, so I tell him if he stays sitting down on the potty then I will put gel and hairspray in his hair. I do crazy things to it and then we take pictures to send to grandma and dad. I just happened to get him super cute and sweet in this one. I know it’s a little blurry, but I just love his sweet face and his chubby baby hand in it!
All in all, I’m not in a super big rush to be completely done. This is my last baby, and I am making the most of all the little things. Potty training might be a big drudgery to some, and sometimes it is for me too, but if I remember to take a step back and have fun with my little monster it makes it more enjoyable for everyone involved.
Pull-Ups helps take the scare out of potty training by making it fun and easy with new Monsters U character training pants! You can help make potty training easier by staying consistent and using rituals like the potty break. Make it a game and ask your toddler, “What does a little monster take?”…“A Potty Break!”
