Potty training is one of those things parents look back on and say “Whew, I’m glad that’s over.” Parenthood has so many awesomely memorable moments but potty training isn’t generally one of them. It’s more one of those things you try to put out of your memory. The tantrums, the tears and waking up in the middle of the night. Then there’s the stuff the kids do too. If one thing has made the experience tolerable it’s the invention of training pants, or pull-ups.

I’m not sure my mom used pull-ups for my brother or I, but Huggies Pull-Ups has been a part of our family through 5 potty training kids.

My first experience potty training was probably the scariest experience ever. Well, next to the fear of dropping the baby – that stayed with me until she was walking. I think my biggest fear when I began potty training was that when it was over she would be ready to leave home. She was already walking and talking; the bottles and paci were out of the picture and this was all I had left of her being a baby. Once you get past those first few night you grow use to have a baby. You don’t want that baby to grow up, let alone leave home!

I knew I had to let go of my fears and that I couldn’t keep her a baby forever. I sucked it up when I couldn’t stand the nagging from my family anymore and bought her a pack of Huggies Pull-Ups. I feel horrible that I don’t remember what character was on them, but she liked the a lot. I do remember that “I’m going to cry” feeling the moment she put her first pair of Huggies Pull-Ups on. From that point I realized she was growing up, but knowing she would always need me gave me the strength to push through potty training.

After talking to other parents I realize it isn’t just me that has these fears. What about you? What’s is or was your biggest potty training fear and what did you do to get past it?

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!”
