It is official – we are potty training. We’ve been playing the game off and on for the past month and this past week, we decided to really go for it. Miss H has been pretty open to the idea and we’ve come up with a great rewards system to help her be successful.
Why now? Well, she is almost 2 1/2 and I do not want to be messing with swim diapers in a couple of months when we are soaking up all the summer sun at the pool. One less thing to worry about. She’s also been interested in the potty and we’ve had off and on success with it. We were ready to jump in!
What’s Working? A couple of things we’ve implemented this past week is a reward system and using Pull-Ups® Training Pants. Day one was pretty tough with lots of accidents, but being consistent, confident and encouraging got us to where we are. It’s been a lot of trial and error, but here is what is working for us!
We take Miss H potty about every 30-45 minutes depending on her liquid intake. If she goes in the potty, she gets the choice of 2 gummi bears or a sticky lizard. She’s way more into the toys than the snacks, which is great! If we get more that just a tinkle, then a mini Kit-Kat is the reward. She’s so excited about going potty now that she runs to the potty and sits down before taking her Pull-Ups® Training Pants off and goes so. She’ll get there. Day after day, it has been progressively getting better. Yesterday – only one accident!
