Taking a Potty Break with Mary #PullsUpsPottyBreaks #ad @PullUpsBigKid

Since Mary was my first and only child, no one told me how difficult potty training would be. And since both sets of parents are very old fashioned in thinking, they all had me thinking that if Mary wasn't already going to the bathroom on her own by the time she was 2 years old, I was a bad parent. They have even said that to me too! But in truth, kids will go when they're ready. Of course you can help them along, but you can't force them to go potty. That has to come naturally. So as Mary started to get older, I started to get more and more looks seeming to say, "You are a disgrace to parents." But I'm here to say, Stop listening to people's opinions on potty training! Your child will go when they're ready and age shouldn't matter. Mary is able to pee in the toilet now and wipe herself, but she still can't wipe after pooping. But I have no shame in that. She will when she's ready and that's all there is to it.

I think one of the hardest things I had to do with Mary was actually get her ready for a potty break. She is a full time player so it doesn't even cross her mind when she has to go to the bathroom. But when I first started potty training her, I took her to the bathroom once every hour and had her sit there for 10 minutes. Yes, it was bothersome to me and her, but it got her on a schedule and eventually she recognized that if she needs to go, it's alright to stop what she's doing so she can.

With the help of Pull-Ups, Mary now has the confidence to try everything on her own. Of course she still has some accidents, but what kid doesn't? Plus with Pull-Ups, Mary feels like it's underwear so she knows diapers are gone!

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!”
