As you know I’m not yet a Mom (working on it though 😉 ), but I am a darn great Tía (Aunt) and Godmother to 9 kids under 8yrs old. While I’m not with them 24/7, I have baby sat them for over night stays, weekend getaways and every year for a two week summer vacation – generally 5 at at time. Yes, 5 kids (4 boys & 1 girl) – 2 who were born a day apart, 2 that were born a month apart and one that is a year younger than the middle kids. Talk about a hand full; and now I have a fresh crop that includes 4 under one and summer is just around the corner. 😀
No match for this Tía though. I have many years of experience under my belt. My sister and I are 9 years apart and I’m proud to say I helped my working parents raise her. She was the first one I had to help transition to say adiós (goodbye) to diapers and it’s never been quite the same process for any child since. Thankfully, my ladies who lunch crew agreed!
Thankfully Pull-Ups® Training Pants are proven to deliver more potty training success than diapers because they have stretchy sides that allow the child to learn the skill of pulling them down and up, while giving them the right amount of protection for training. The reliability of Pull-Ups® also offers the parent and/or caregivers a solution for consistent potty training for every situation; whether on a shopping trip with Mom, riding in the car with Grandma, or running around the playground at the day care.
Regardless of the method, give yourself and your child a break when it comes to saying adiós to diapers. It will happen when it happens. 😀
Buena Suerte/Good Luck!
