Win a Potty Training Pack - Competition

Potty training.


For many I know that potty training is dreaded, I have to admit I didn't exactly welcome it when we started with Alfie, I had no idea where to start or what to do, I spent hours researching it and at first I put it off as I felt he wasn't showing the 'signs' but a few months down the line when he clearly was I had to bite the bullet and start. It was definitely one of the more challenging things that we've had to go through but we got there in the end. 

Alfie was actually brilliant weeing on the potty and toilet, he seemed to take to that really quickly but pooing was another matter, that took alot of perseverance for him to poo but thankfully just before Christmas it all just seemed to click and he's now brilliant at both. 

Here are my top tips for successful potty training: 

1. Invest in a decent potty, we have a Disney Cars themed potty that makes a noise and has a comfortable seat so he can spend time on it without being uncomfortable. 

2. Pop the potty somewhere private and discreet, Alfie seemed to prefer this at the beginning.

3. Look out for the signs, don't rush potty training before they are ready or this could be a bad thing. 

4. Use lots of encouragement when using the potty, I swear that our neighbours must have wondered what was going on with all our cheering and clapping when Alfie used the potty!

5. If you're going to potty train, be brave and just go for it, try not to revert to nappies for car journeys, trips out etc as this can lead to confusing signals. I was petrified to do this at first and naturally there will be accidents but just go for it.

There are many other tips but these worked for us and in celebration of potty training you could be in with the chance of winning a potty training pack worth £24.00 with the company Dry Like Me.
