Give Lots of Praise

Potty training is guided so much by your own attitude and reaction to the potty training journey. When your child successfully uses the potty, make sure to give them lots and lots of positive praise so that they know that their actions were positive and using the potty is something that you would love for them to do again. In general, if you look silly jumping up … Read More

The Ins and Outs of Thirsties Potty Training Pants

Thirsties Potty Training Pant is designed to help catch small accidents while potty training.

Since we’re starting to stick our toe into the potty training world again (okay, that sounds gross) with our 2-year-old daughter, I was ecstatic when Thirsties announced their new training pants. We skipped straight to Gerber trainers with our son but I wasn’t a fan, so I’m pleased to give the new Thirsties potty training pant a try.

Laura recently talked on #ThirstiesLive about the ins and outs of Thirsties trainers, so we thought we’d share that great information with you all today. You can also watch a replay right here:

Why I’m in No Hurry to Potty Train My Daughter

There are a zillion methods for potty training out there these days. It seems that there are plenty of parents who have success with one – and an equal amount of families who say the same method doesn’t work. So please don’t take my ramblings today as potty training gospel. Just because I have one child who successfully navigated this tricky part of childhood doesn’t mean that I’m an expert. Far from it!

That said, I’ve decided that there’s no rush in potty training my daughter.

When my 4 ½-year-old son was younger, we had some early “hooray!” moments with potty training. I guess you could say that they were misleading…extremely. Just because we had some successes didn’t mean that it would be a simple, easy “Point A to Point B” journey to a diaper-free existence. Add to it the fact that I was pregnant with our second and there Read More

Why Potty Training Setbacks Aren’t the End of the World


Raise your hand if you’ve potty-trained a small human. Or are in the midst of doing so. Or plan on having a child not enter college still having bedtime accidents.

Then you know how daunting it may be. Especially with a super strong-willed child. (Should I finally admit here that my son is SO MUCH like me??? So. Very. Stubborn. I should be proud, really.)

If you read all the books and blogs and Facebook posts and advice handed down from generation to generation, you’ve literally heard every suggestion possible…including complete contradictions.

Offer a reward. No, wait, that’s bribery and never works. (Even though it worked on me as a kid. Not that it’s a good thing; it didn’t work with my son.)

Tell the child when to take a potty break. No, wait, let them learn to listen to their body’s cues. (In my experience, one leads to the Read More
