Potty Training During the Holidays

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pull-Ups® Training Pants.

On our journey to get our daughter to ditch the diapers, we discovered that potty training during the Holidays can be a little rough. With the chaos of running to one event after another and getting everything together with shopping and baking, it can get a little off schedule which can throw your little one off their potty training routine and could make them regress.

Here are some of my tips for not letting Holiday Stress distract from your Potty Training Success:

1. Set a timer on your phone or use Pull-Ups® FREE timer that can be found on their website. Keeping a schedule in the midst of the chaos can help with those early days of potty training.

2. Show your child the potty when you go to a place they have never been before. Some children have trouble going potty when the environment has changed. There is too much to look at it. That's why when I'm out in public, even if I don't think my daughter has to go but she asks to go potty, we make a trip to explore the restroom. It can be time consuming, but it makes her more comfortable and she usually ends up going as well.

3. Take your child with you every time you need to go. Don't make it a struggle though. Sometimes children need to see that's it okay to go other places as well and seeing their number one role model go potty in a strange place can make it easier for them to adjust to any fears they might have.

4. Ask your child to go potty often. It can be hard to remember with all the excitement going on. But show your child that just because they take a break to go potty doesn't mean play time is over.

5. Bring along the Pull-Ups®! Pull-Ups® training pants are gender/size specific and there are a variety of products to match children’s various learning styles such as Pull-Ups® Training Pants with Cool Alert®, Learning Designs®, and Pull-Ups® Night*Time Training Pants.

  1. I am so thankful that we are done with this stage! It was really stressful! I wanted to throw a party when we were done!

  2. Great tips to keep in mind!

  3. DD is potty training, and I tell her to go potty at least every 1 1/2-2 hours. Thankfully, the accidents are minimal.

  4. My little on loves to go potty & she's not even 2! But it does get very chaotic with all the hubbub of the holidays & she doesn't make it as much as she should.

  5. Pull Ups are such a blessing when you are on the go!

  6. I loved when my babies were little but was so thankful when they were out of diapers. Potty training was no fun! We always did ours in the summer or at spring break but it would probably be the same at the holidays....just lots of consistency and make it fun. Don't push too hard. Sorry for the pun.

  7. I remember the potty training days. My son was a slow learner. Patience helped me a lot.

  8. I am very thankful that that is 40 years behind me. Good tips.

  9. I am sure it helped you were a nanny because it was a job and you had to make the efforts. I gave up and just kept talking about it. There were so many fits I quit. But I know I should have been more on a schedule and stuck to it.

  10. Thanks for the great tips, it won't be long until I have to start potty training our youngest.

  11. These are great tips! I especially like the tip about exploring the restrooms or bathrooms when in a strange place. That's such a great idea to help prevent any fear of potties or accidents while out and about!
