Our Must Haves for Potty Training #PampersEasyUps and a GIVEAWAY!



I was compensated to write this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

We're at that stage again, for the 3rd time in my mothering career. That stage is Potty Training! I've been pretty lucky in that my older 2 trained VERY quickly, as we waited until they were fully ready. And even though the baby (he'll always be my last, my baby) is 2 years and 8 months and showing full signs of readiness, he is my latest and hardest to train. We've been thankful for #PampersEasyUps which help us avoid accidents at home and away but still allow Liam to feel like he's wearing underwear and not a diaper.


Pampers Easy Ups have a full 360° stretchy waistband, and a super soft cottony feel, which makes them feel like real underwear! But the extra absorb channels and dual leak-guard barriers, make them more like a regular diaper. So you get the best of both worlds when trying to potty train your littles!

The Thomas the Engine™ and Dora the Explorer™ designs on Easy Ups help make potty training fun for both boys and girls. Also, Easy Ups is now rolling out new Hello Kitty™ designs.





My favorite feature is the Easy Tear Sides which help it break away in case of solid accidents. Makes it more like a regular diaper and makes cleanup easier than pulling the Easy Up down their legs. EWWW

Plus check out that leak-guard barrier!! Not much is getting through that!

Here are our Must Haves for Potty Training:
-1, Of course is Pampers Easy Ups, we love the features they offer and they come in a variety of sizes (2T-3T, 3T-4T, 4T-5T) and are available in stores nationwide. They are a must for going out and not prolonging the process by putting your child in diapers. 

-2 A little potty makes potty training much easier. I leave mine in my living area so the child is around it all of their waking hours and can easily be reminded to use the potty. This has really helped all my kids grasp the concept a lot faster. 

-3 Pampers Wipes, perfect for messes and even if the child IS successful going in the potty they are still handy to have, if you know what I mean ;)

-4 Treats for rewards. We aren't a family that is huge on candy, but having it in the house is a HUGE reward for our potty training littles and really helps them go more often. For the first week I use these diligently, every single dribble in the potty gets a reward of some type. I only give 2-3 little chocolate pieces, or 1 bigger chocolate piece at a time, if the child has no accidents all day, I'll give a sucker at the end of the day (don't forget to brush their teeth before bed!!)

-5 Lastly is #5, but probably the most important. That is, hand soap!! VERY important for these training littles. We also keep hand sanitizer around as well.

The NEWLY redesigned Pampers Easy Ups are amazing! We've been using them for out and about and naptime and they are great. When he starts to go in them he tells me right away (it doesn't feel like a diaper, it feels cooler to the touch) and this is the perfect way to get him to use the potty more regularly. 

We've been potty training for a little over a week now and during the day I'd say we're a good 80% accident free, so I'm thankful for yet another great potty learner and also for Pampers Easy Ups for catching some of those 'accidents' for me!

You can get a $2 coupon here off the new Pampers Easy Ups!

Not only are Pampers Easy Ups awesome BUT you're going to get a chance to try them for yourself!! SAY WHAT?!?!

1 reader is going to win a $50 AMEX Card, Pampers Easy Ups, and a copy of Ilana Wile's book, "The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting"

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers Easy Ups. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
