Ditch Diapers Easier with the Pull-Ups® Potty Partnership Toolkit!

Potty training. It is a milestone in a child’s life that parents look on with fondness and with a bit of frustration. Each of my kids had a different experience with learning how to use the potty, so we had to use different approaches to get them on the road to diaper freedom. Did you know that June is Potty Awareness Month? Pull-Ups® is celebrating by putting together a Potty Partnership Toolkit! Each one contains fun and handy items and information to help get kids excited and on track during their journey through potty training!

The Pull-Ups® Potty Partnership began earlier this year with a lot of success and provides a fun new way to train your kids to use the potty. This Partnership was created in collaboration with renowned child psycologist and potty training expert, Dr. Heather Wittenberg. It was put together to work with a child’s unique personality, their schedule and their learning patterns.

It all begins with parents completing a free online quiz that will provide customized tips and advice based on the Potty Personality that resembles their child most: a Squirrel, Bear Cub, Owl, Puppy or Turtle.

Pull-Ups® Potty Partnership Toolkit

Each Toolkit includes the following items:

  • Big*Kid Flushable Wipes
  • Pull-Ups® Training Pants
  • Potty seat and chair
  • Potty training book
  • Milestone chart to track progress
  • Plush toy to reward potty accomplishments
  • $25 Walmart gift card to help you stock up on other potty training essentials outlined in the Potty Partnership Toolkit

Potty Training 

My little guy is at the tail end of his potty training journey. Most of the time, he is able to let us know when he needs to visit the bathroom, but there are those few moments where he forgets, or waits too long, resulting in an impromptu wardrobe change. These moments happen both at home, and especially when we are out when he is excited with everything happening around him. The washroom is the LAST thing on his mind!

He LOVED using this kit to help him become more confident in his potty training skills. The plush toy was an added bonus. He fell in love with it instantly. 

This plush toy was a great help to have our little guy pretend to be us in the bathroom. He gave it instruction and guidance as he had use it to use the potty a few times to help it run through a successful potty run. The potty itself is fabulous! It plays tunes when the sensors at the bottom of the potty are triggered, and it lights up and makes a flushing noise when the flusher is pushed down. The book is also a great touch, as it gives encouragement to young potty users as to how to use the potty. The chart, stickers and hand washing instructions teach kids how to use the washroom properly and encourages different steps throughout this process.

This kit was very helpful for my son to get him on his way to being fully on his way fully completing this important milestone. It is sad to see him grow up so fast, but I am also extremely proud to help him become more independent.

    Both my daughters are not potty trained but I am off work in a couple weeks and will be going at it full force. my oldest is 3.5 and autistic and it has not been an easy transition so far but hoping things get better as we get a routine going

  2. em says:

    allowing her to buy her own pull-ups/underwear

  3. Florence C says:

    I always found giving them praise and little treats helps keep them on track.

  4. Nicole B says:

    I went to the old standby. Let them run around naked and then we have zero accidents. After a day they seem to get it. I make sure I praise them every time. I also waited until they were three. That made it easier as well!

  5. Michelle Roberge-Butcher says:

    No stories on potty training yet but we are planing to start with our son soon, he will be 2 at the beginning of August so this prize pack would certainly help.

  6. Darwin says:

    We used a reward chart and if the chart is filled, they earned a bigger prize. My son was very excited to earn his toy.

  7. KD says:

    The biggest help with child number one, was sticker rewards for using the potty.

  8. Israel Y says:

    Chart leading to a prize was helpful but what really worked for my son was throwing a cheerio in the toilet to aim at, he loved it, made it fun.

  9. Robyn Bellefleur says:

    I have just started reading books and showing pictures to my daughter about potty training.

  10. Cheryl says:

    We share about to start potty training our second and my biggest advice is to be patient, don’t force it, not all kids want to train at the same age

  11. Jana L. says:

    We try to associate it with positive things, like treats and other rewards

  12. I’d definitely say a reward sheet!

  13. Lynda Cook says:

    No stories yet, my granddaughter is still in diapers, but I think her mother is going to start soon, so this would be an awesome win!!

  14. kathy downey says:

    When my kids were young many years ago we used star stickers like was used in School

  15. Cheryl MacPhail says:

    I just keep at it!! No excitement yet from him but I sure am when he uses the potty!! lol

  16. Gillian Morgan says:

    Sophie got excited for potty training because she would get a m&m overtime she used the potty.

  17. Elaine G says:

    My niece is being potty trained now. Her mom keeps thing consistent and she doesn’t like going in her big girl underwear,so she makes sure to go to the potty.

  18. Marla P says:

    I used to motivate them with stickers and potty parties 🙂

  19. Athena says:

    Picking our her big girl underwear with her, and then having patience to see her through it.

  20. Holly OGorman says:

    I don’t push it. They will get it when they are ready, just keep positive and supportive and it will happen.

  21. Wendy hutton says:

    by letting them choose their underwear, making little charts and giving small rewards

  22. Andrea Amy says:

    I didn’t push at all, I just let it happen in its own time but I did try to reward and definitely used positive reinforcement.

  23. Jonnie says:

    We get the whole family involved in being excited and pouring on the praise.

  24. Dianne G. says:

    I bought a book about using the potty and we read it several times a day for a few weeks and then there were lots of rewards along the way.

  25. angela m says:

    I always gave her praise and treats or rewards.

  26. Kathy Thorn says:

    I honestly didn’t need to use rewards. She was ready and capable.

  27. I start potty training in a couple of weeks. I am going to use a sticker reward system. Simple and easy, but kids always love stickers.

  28. ivy pluchinsky says:

    Sticker and candy rewards helped a lot!

  29. Grieta A says:

    We are trying to reward and praise her for encouragement 🙂

  30. Judy Cowan says:

    With my one nephew we used the reward method to keep him on track. He got a treat whenever he went (M&M’s) and it seemed to work well for him. Another nephew will soon be starting his training.

  31. Jenny says:

    I always found giving them praise and treats helped

  32. Janine a says:

    We will be starting potty training soon and plan to take our little guy shopping with us to pick out his own potty to make it a fun idea for him

  33. Travelbuds says:

    My daughter never wore pants at home so it made it easy for her when she had to run to her potty and go. Plus very little accidents as she was always trying to go.

  34. sueplay says:

    My grandson is not quite there yet but my daughter suggests a reward system. That’s why we would love to win this amazing prize.

  35. Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard says:

    we went and bought new “big boy” underwear

  39. Kim M says:

    My child loved it when I sang to him when on the potty. He looked forward to it.

  40. Meg says:

    We are trying bribery! My guy is interested in using the potty but just cant stay focused. We are trying m&ms as a reward.

  41. Holly MacRitchie says:

    My daughter loved using a sticker chart! Each time she used the potty she would put a sticker on the chart!

  47. Kim K says:

    By using stickers and having lots of patience!

    I will let him know that if he’s able to successfully, I will give him a sticker. When he accumulated certain number of stickers, he can pick a small toy.

  49. Melissa Marie says:

    My daughter liked getting stickers as a reward

  50. Wanda Tracey says:

    I would motivate them to try and sink a small handful of cheerios by
    making a game out of it.

  51. Carey Hurst says:

    Well I can not really answer that, there is nothing I have been able to do so far that has helped, so help lol

  52. Nicky says:

    We haven’t started potty training yet, but I have heard good tips about rewarding successes with little stickers or an m&m!

  53. Amie says:

    Get excited when they make it , don’t make a big deal when they don’t , just say its ok and we will make it next time , they will look forward to making it then !

  54. dawn walsh says:

    lots of game time only on the potty ie ipad

  55. Jennifer P. says:

    We are doing a sticker chart – thank goodness she loves stickers, otherwise I think we’d be getting nowhere!!

  56. Mike Gismondi says:

    We used Smarties as a reward!

  57. I just waited for my kids to be ready and when they were, they were so excited! No secret solution.

  58. nicolthepickle says:

    I think they got excited when they realized it was a big kid thing to do.

  59. Laurie P says:

    yeah sticker charts are big here…..

  60. Nate Fuller says:

    We tried giving rewards, but I think it’s when they want to be perceived as a big boy or girl that they get the most motivated.

  61. Linda says:

    I keep my son excited about potty training by giving him a lot of encouragement.

  62. Amber Y says:

    We haven’t had to hit this milestone yet, but for my nieces clapping and beinging excited for them seems to help them get excited.

  63. Natasha says:

    We have just started potty training with my 18 month old son. We try to use a schedule, putting him on the potty at regular intervals. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t! When it works, we celebrate. 🙂

  64. lori butler says:

    i would say having them sit on the potty and even watching while i went to bathroom

  65. heidi c. says:

    We try to put our little guys on the potty at regular intervals and even keep a potty close by for urgent moments. No rushing, no pushing, no punishing.

  66. Monique L.S. says:

    We were her biggest cheerleaders, making a huge deal everytime she used the toilet. we would clap and cheer and smile and high-five. It was great.

  67. Ana says:

    It’s been almost a week and my 2 year old is doing great on #1, I first bought her favorite cartoon character’s underwear plus she loves the commercial for pullups “Am a big kid now”!! We had lots of accidents the first couple of days and now she tells me when she has to go. Now, about #2, she refuses to do it on the potty, so we still need help on that.

  68. Catlin says:

    Were working on our 2.5 yr old to start potty learning. We’re still having lots of accident’s but she seems to be interested. We’ve tried a sticker incentive board and each time she pees on the potty we give her a sticker for her board and we celebrate.
    She loves it!

  69. Nicole Jubleew says:

    Using rewards definitely helped the process.

  70. Krista M says:

    We did a reward system with potty training with using the tablet as reward & lots of verbal praise.

  71. Angela September says:

    i think you have to make it FUN for kids, not scary. Incorporating a doll or stickers is a great idea

  72. Allison Matz says:

    When I was potty training my daughter, my parents had a cabin without running water. To flush you poured water in and stepped on the pedal, my daughter was very excited about this, by the end of our time there she was pretty much trained.

  73. Karine says:

    Reward them for thinking about it!

  74. Aarone Mawdsley says:

    i would use a calendar

  75. Melissa Finn says:

    We went out and bought a Minnie Mouse potty to get her excited & we are using sticker rewards as incentive

  76. Suzi says:

    Swedish berries! (crazy but true)

  77. Sarah says:

    My daughter responded well to a sticker reward system. Eventually it just became automatic.

  78. Caryn Coates says:

    I use different treats like smarties. Now I have another little one I am currently trying to potty train and hoping it works but so far no luck.

  79. KellyPC says:

    I think that staying calm about it would be best, stress isn’t good for either of you!
