Potty Training! Yayyyy!
I stumbled upon this article from The Stir about potty training/using Pull-Ups and it gave me the idea to blog about it.
Did/do you use Pull-ups during potty training?
Here’s MY* input. With my daughter, we started training her a little before her 2nd birthday but then we put if off until after my son was born. So she was probably about 26 months old when we started back. I’m not gonna lie, at first we used Pull-Ups. We also got her a little potty. Just a simple one. Not some fancy-smancy talking toilet lol. Does the big toilet talk to you? If so, you might need help that can not be obtained from this blog. =
Pull-ups are POINTLESS. Do NOT waste your money on them (unless you are using them for overnight accidents). All they are is decorated diapers. That are easily pulled down.
Lameeeeee. They just want you're money.
Now, as a SAHM, the potty training was pretty easy now that I look back on it. After about a package or 2 of Pull-Ups, I finally realized they were not doing anything to help. We bought Kenzie her first pairs of “big girl panties”. Yes, panties. Cloth. Washable.
She loved them. “They look like Mommy’s”! Although …I certainly do NOT have Dora on my underwear LOL.
Yes, there were PLENTY of accidents. Mostly in the floor. (We finally got smart & didn’t let her on the couch until AFTER she had used the bathroom lol.)
Patience is a virtue in this stage.
When she had an accident in her panties, she was so embarrassed and sad. If she pooped in them, I threw them away. She didn’t like me throwing her pretty panties in the garbage. She also didn’t like that the pee ran down her legs lol. So after about a couple of weeks, she finally got the hang of it. She would know before she had to go, tell me, and I would help her on the BIG potty. She never even used the little potty lol.
Long story short: Don’t buy Pull-Ups. If you are a SAHM, find the time (and most importantly, patience) to potty train your child without wasting money! =
PS – I’m SO dreading the day I have to potty train my son. LOL
*Notice, this is all MY OPINION. So don’t get your panties in a wad. lol PunPunPunPunPunnnnnn!
