Potty training. What comes to mind when you hear those two words? Does fear strike deep in your heart?
I know I felt a bit terrified when starting this process with our firstborn. I briefly considered waiting until he was in jr. high…but quickly changed my mind when I thought about paying for all those diapers.
Thankfully, we are in that brief hiatus before potty training our second son. But, I’m feeling a lot more confident this time around. I thought I’d share some of the (free!) tools that helped make our first go-around a lot smoother than I expected.
Sticker charts were a life saver for us. PottyTrainingConcepts.com offers free printable potty training charts in themes such as Cars, Disney Princess, Thomas & Friends, and Winnie the Pooh. We used the Chuck E. Cheese printable rewards calendar for Griffin. (We used our own rewards system, but kids can receive 10 free tokens for taking a completed chart into Chuck E. Cheese.)
We also signed up to receive this free potty training DVD from Pull-Ups. Griffin loved it–he still occasionally asks to watch it! As I recall, there were also some great Huggies coupons included as well.
Huggies also offers a free Pull-Ups sample here, along with a few other tips and tools.
Are you a little further along in the process, but still working on night-time? Wal-mart also has a free sample of Huggies Good-Nites here.
How about you? I’d love to hear about your tips and tools as well!
