We recently embarked on that monumental journey known as potty training, so I thought it would be a great time to share some potty training tips that have worked for me in the past and are working for me this go around. Moms have to support each other, that's why I'm sharing my potty training tips for success.
When Should you Start Potty Training?
Did you know that summer is a perfect time to start potty training? You'll hear why when you watch our latest video, but I digress. Let's talk about how you can ensure potty training success!
Children are all so different and I found that different types of tools and different tricks worked better with each of my kiddos...but there is ONE tip that is universal...Both you AND your child must to be ready. If your toddler isn't giving you queues that she's amenable to potty training and you aren't fully committed to the process, it's not going to work. For example, if your child isn't waking up dry from naps and in the morning, it's probably not time yet.

How to Reward a Successful Trip to the Potty
Mom, Nina Nsilo-Swai created a cool motivational tool in the form of a sticker. Here's how it works: Simply stick the pee-kaboo reusable potty training sticker™ into a portable potty and watch what happens. Each time your toddler has a potty success "pee-kaboo" a magical image appears in their potty, visually rewarding them for their efforts and encouraging them to use the potty again and again all by themselves. "I want to see the butterfly" your little one will squeal. "Sure" you reply, just pee in the potty and "pee-kaboo." Clever and a lot less cavity-inducing than m&m's. A sticker is reusable for up to 6 weeks.
