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



I love being a mom but let’s face it it is not all rainbows and sunshine! One of the things I find the most difficult is potty training.  All kids are so different for instance, my 2nd son practically potty trained himself while my three year old now is taking me months and months to potty train.  Potty training is a huge milestone for toddlers and parents but it can be super stressful!

Spring is the time many families kick-off potty training so they are ready for summer fun and then for the start of preschool. Potty training can feel like an overwhelming process, and when minor leaks or accidents occur, it can be a disappointment. Pampers Easy Ups helps makes this journey a little easier by providing better leak protection than the leading competitor.


As a parent I want potty training to be a positive experience for my toddler, but leaks, accidents, and switching from training pants to diapers overnight can feel like setbacks. This is why Pampers want to empower little ones to overcome these obstacles to achieve and celebrate potty training success.


To make potty training easier, here are some helpful potty training tips that work! 

potty training tips


1) My daughter loves having her own potty. It is just her size, sometimes a regular potty can be quite intimidating for toddlers. 


2)  Use Pampers Easy Ups because little ones tend to transition easier from diapers to underwear.  Plus they work during the day AND night.  Kids will enjoy the fun designs such as Thomas the Train for boys and Dora the Explorer for girls.


3) I keep books and magazines near the potty which, tends to make my tot to want to sit on her potty and take her time as she scans through the reading material.


4) I scoured Pinterest and printed off a potty reward chart which I have on  my refrigerator and each time she uses the potty I give her a heart which equal up to a reward once the chart is full of hearts. 


Pampers Easy Ups are comfortable with super-stretchy sides to make them easy to pull up and down when using the potty.  Available is sizes boys and girl sizes 2T/3T through 4T/5T.
