Potty training is notorious for being a stressful process. By the time it rolls around we are usually over buying diapers. I know I was ready to stop changing diapers and often wondered if it was every going to happen. But it is possible to make sure that potty training goes easily and is stress free for you.
Stress Free Potty Training
1. Watch for the signs they are ready.
There is nothing more stressful than trying to potty train a child who just is not ready. Instead watch for a few signs that your child is ready. Are you changing less wet diapers during the day? Does your child sometimes wake from a nap with a dry diaper? These are signs that your child may be ready. You can even find out your child’s Potty Training personality with tips from Huggies Pull-Ups.
2. Ditch the diapers during the day.
To start with get rid of diapers during the day. You can move right to underwear but I love the option of Huggies Pull-Ups instead of diapers. Pull-Ups will help contain any accidents but they also make sure your child knows they have gone. They feel wet or messy in them, signaling that it was time to go potty.
3. Make the wardrobe easy.
Nothing is harder for a little one learning to use the potty than to not be able to undress quickly enough. If you are staying in opt for a t-shirt and a Pull-Up.
4. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Accidents are going to happen. And every child is different. My son took what felt like forever to potty train and even once he was he still held onto diapers for bowel movements. My daughter on the other hand was so excited to not wear diapers that she picked it up in no time.
5. It may take awhile.
Even though my daughter picked up potty training in no time she still refuses to go to bed at night without a Huggies Pull-Up on. She has only had one accident early on but she still needs that security every night. And there is nothing wrong with that!
For Pull-Ups I headed over to Dollar General. They had a big selection at a great price. Pull-Ups also come in all sorts of character designs for that real underwear look.

We opted this time for Sophia Pull-Ups. And even though I don’t have a timeline on when we won’t need them anymore, I am just sitting back and letting her take the lead.
