Pampers Easy Ups Potty Training Tips

My twin boys are now 2 1/2-years-old and I've been dreading starting to potty train two kids at once. Our routine is finally in a groove and just the thought of throwing a new wrench in the mix is giving me a headache.


To start the process and make the transition easier, we've switched to Pampers Easy Ups training pants. Easy Ups are designed to help the diaper-to-underwear transition by allowing potty-training toddlers to set aside their diapers and wear something with more of an underwear-like look and feel that still helps contain accidental messes no matter whether they happen at home, on-the-go or overnight.

My boys meanwhile went crazy over the fact that Thomas the Tank Engine is on the boys version of Easy Ups as it's one of their favorite programs. They especially love dancing to the theme song.

I also found that Easy Ups are quicker for parents to put on their wiggly and busy toddlers than traditional diapers.

In order to further prepare, we are working on "potty learning." We have been encouraging the boys to start pulling down their own pants and diapers by themselves, which Logan is doing in the photo on the left. We have also been working on getting them to better communicate to us when they have poop in their diapers. Ben has this down, but Logan just ignores my question all together, lol.

Another great tool has been reading potty books to them each night. We like: Once Upon a Potty and Caillou: No More Diapers.

Outfit your home for potty training! We bought two of these Summer Infant Lil' Loo Potties in different colors. We put them wherever the boys are and bribe them with marshmallows for sitting on the potty. We also bring it with us when we travel and in the trunk of the car for when we're on-the-go.

  2. My best Potty training tip is to use a child's potty training chair that sits on the floor. This makes it easier for child and they will not be so intimidated by the big people's toilet! I know it really helped me when training my daughter.

  4. My tip is to wait until the child is ready. Starting too soon just becomes frustrating for the parent and the toddler.

  8. Most experts advise buying a child-size potty, which your toddler can feel is her own and which will also feel more secure to her than a full-size toilet.

    If your child has a favorite doll or stuffed animal, try using it for potty demonstrations. Most children enjoy watching their favorite toy go through the motions, and may learn more this way than from you telling them what to do.

    Get your daughter focused on the benefits of being potty trained by taking her on a special errand: Buying panties. Let her know that she gets to choose whatever kind she wants. (Underwear featuring a favorite movie character or bright design is usually a big hit.)

    One of the most important things you'll need to teach your daughter is how to wipe properly. Explain that she needs to make sure she moves the toilet paper from front to back, especially when she has a bowel movement, to avoid getting an infection.

    I notice so many people mention this http://bit.ly/1DOLhgg, you may just be surprised to find out potty training doesn't have to be hard or stressful.

  26. My mother told me to put the little potty chair in the kitchen where I was at most of the time. I thought that was disgusting. I struggled to potty train my first son. I tried it with the 2nd one and he trained in a week. Rosanne rosans4@comcast.net

  41. When we were potty training our son, my hubby got our son matching “manly-man” underwear, they would spend Saturday mornings, lounging in their t-shirts/undies, watching cartoons. My son would also follow him into the bathroom. We had him trained in no time, thanks to the father/son bonding time.

  45. My best tip is to make sure you and your child are relaxed when they go to the potty. They are more eager to use it when there is no stress.

  46. My best piece of advice is to wait until the child is ready to initiate potty training. If you push them before they are ready, you may both wind up very frustrated!

    After two utterly miserable weeks of my husband and I trying to train our son on our own to go to the bathroom ... I decided to find a method to help me teach my son go to the bathroom.
    My son was in the stages furthest from the regression, kicked and screamed when he would sit on his potty. Not to mention to go into hiding whenever he had to go.
    We use the methods of a book that you download from the internet and I was speechless after my husband and I attended our son sitting in her bathroom, all by itself! 4 days in your program and regression were corrected and we had our first day accident free.

  49. These are all excellent tips; potty training can be such a stressful time, both for parents and children! When it comes to potty training, its time to ease your “baby” into a very huge change. Sometimes you can be a little bit abrupt, and sometimes its better to take your time.
