Learning to Take Potty Breaks – #PullUpsPottyBreaks

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies Pull-Ups.

“Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease.” –Lisa Alther… Yep, as moms, our lives are filled with chaos. Even the best organized, on top of things, in control mom still has days that feel out of control. {Err, at least I hope so. I don’t know any of those types of moms, so I’m just hoping that even the perfect ones have days like mine….}

Learning to Potty Train a Toddler

One of the biggest challenges of motherhood that’s really made me feel out of control is potty training. Because this kid, splashing in the toilet, is NOT potty training, lol. I’m like – “I know I told you to start using the potty, but this is NOT what I mean!” *Sigh*…  Abby was ready to potty train a long time ago. I would start to get serious about it – then some big set back would come along: I’ve had some health problems, we’ve been in the middle of remodeling projects, I get so overwhelmed with work. But they’re all excuses, and I need to buckle down and get serious – I know just a few weeks of really and truly committing to potty training and we’d be doing good. I mean – she’s obviously comfortable using a potty, lol. So, I’ve been using the awesome Pull-Ups and resources from Pull-Ups to give me an extra hand! Keep reading to see how they can help you too….

I’m a big kid now

First tool we checked out – the potty dance. Ok, I admit it – as much as I love Pull-Ups, the first time I saw this video I said, “This is freakin’ ridiculous.” An hour later, when the song was still in my head, I thought maybe I’d see what Abby thought of it. The next day when she’d attempt to sing the song and do the moves to show me it was time to go potty I realized it was a hit. I mean, anything that sticks with kids and helps them get excited about learning to use the potty is a winner in my book. So, I went looking to see what else Pull Ups could offer to help me out.

Potty Training Tools and Freebies

Second tool – freebies. We recently had a super fun lunch playdate to build some extra excitement before we go to see the new Monsters University movie in a couple of weeks. While I was shopping at Walmart for fun Monsters U themed goodies, I saw some specially marked boxes of Pull-Ups that came with awesome potty training freebies – we got a coupon code for Snapfish photo freebies, a training chart, stickers, coupon book, and free pack of those awesome flushable wipes. {HUGE potty training help, lemme tell ya.} Watch for this when you’re out shopping – it rocks. {Check out more tips on saving on baby essentials.}


Pull-Ups helps take the scare out of potty training by making it fun and easy with new Monsters U character training pants! You can help make potty training easier by staying consistent and using rituals like the potty break. Make it a game and ask your toddler, “What does a little monster take?”…“A Potty Break!”

  1. I definitely did not enjoy potty training. This certainly sounds like a much more fun way to go about it than the way I did!
