I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
I could not be more thrilled that Aidan is finally potty trained. Well, I say potty trained, but he is only 3. He’s definitely still having an accident here and there, which is why I love Pull-Ups. By no means would I consider myself a potty training expert, but Pull-Ups do help to give me the patience that I needed to potty train Aidan, especially during my pregnancy. One of my last posts, Tips To Potty Training Success, showed me that I do kind of know what I am doing, at least enough to invite one of my girlfriend’s over for a potty training playdate.
Keli and I have been friends for almost 10 years and both of us now have little boys a year a part. Having boys so close in age has been a life saver for me. Aidan always has a built in friend to go to the zoo, the park or to the pool with. In this particular case, we invited Keli and Tobin over for a potty training playdate. Tobin is a step behind Aidan, which is understandable for his age. He shows interest in going potty, but he’s not quite there yet. He is the perfect little candidate for Pull-Ups!
The theme of my potty training playdate was Jake and the Neverland Pirates, of course! Both boys love Jake, which is perfect since he happens to be featured on Pull-Ups! Keli and I love to get the boys together to play while we kick back and relax. It’s one of the only times we get a break, to be honest! Plus, since she is currently potty training Tobin, she likes to bring him over to motivate him to use the potty like Aidan. Her biggest potty training struggle right now is getting Tobin to use the potty consistently. He will hop on the potty and go, no problem, some days. Other days he wants nothing to do with it. I shared with her my tips, such as having a reward system and creating a potty break routine. I also told her all about the Pull-Ups Time To Potty app that she could download to her phone. I also shared with her my success using Pull-Ups. Aidan has done great with with his Pull-Ups. They are thinner than diapers and he is able to get them on and off all by himself. He even knows to look for the “Back” logo to know which way to put them on! Since he’s now an opinionated 3 year old, he likes to dig through the bag for his favorite character of the day, usually alternating between Jake and Buzz. All in all, my Jake and the Neverland Pirates potty training playdate was a success. Aidan and Tobin stopped to use the potty each time the Time To Potty app timer went off. Keli was happy with Tobin’s success, and was motivated by my tips to get home and keep up the good work.
