Potty Training Made Easy With Pampers Easy Ups {Plus, $100 Prize Pack Giveaway}

“This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.”

Oh the joys of potty training. Sawyer just turned three and we’re prepping for preschool now. One thing that has to be handled before he starts is potty training. With my other two boys this task seemed so much easier. Johnny potty trained with no issues. I remember pretty much taking him out of diapers and into underwear and it just worked. While Gavin wasn’t so easy he was trained during the day in less than a week. Sawyer on the other hand has been a little trickier. We’ve been encouraging underwear during the times he’s awake but it isn’t always successful.

This is how potty training has been going for us these days…. #bathtime #SawyerJames #pottytraining #lotsofbaths

Since I’m trying to encourage not using diapers we’ve been using Pampers Easy Ups instead when it’s bedtime or if we have to leave the house. Pampers Easy Ups go on and off like big boy underwear so using toilets outside our home are at lot easier. They also give me the sanity of knowing that we can get everything we need done without having to run home for yet another bath.

You and your little boy will know when he’s ready for potty training. That’s why Pampers Easy Ups Training Pants are designed for when he’s ready for potty training during the day, but still needs protection at night. Plus, they feature Pampers Leak Protection for fewer leaks. And Pampers Easy Ups absorb quicker than the other leading training pant. Pampers Easy Ups Training Pants come in easy toddler sizing that matches the size of your child’s clothes and feature fun Thomas the Tank Engine designs.

  4. Denise M says

    Dont force it, when they are ready, they will tell you

  5. Dianne says

    We started on a long weekend and didn’t leave the house for those few days. Made things easier to always be a few yards away from a bathroom!

  6. Kenny says

    Be encouraging!

  7. nicole dziedzic says

    My best potty training tip is when they do a great job offer them a reward and always be really encouraging.

  8. Lisa Brown says

    use a potty that the child likes and is comfortable using; if they like the potty, it is motivating.

  9. Janet W. says

    My best potty training tip is to use a good reward system to help keep your child motivated!

  10. Jessica T says

    Let them go at their own pace. the more you push the less they want to do it.

  11. Heidi Daily says

    My best potty training tip is to follow the child’s lead, and don’t start until they are ready and showing interest.

  12. Betsy says

    use rewards and wait until they’re ready

  13. Jenn Mc says

    My best tip is to let them take the lead, forcing it doesn’t help, my oldest stopped wanting to use the potty because we forced the issue too much

  14. vickie couturier says

    take off diapers and put on underware,,and keep on a schedule ,whether they say they need to go or not they can do and sit anyway,,the ones im strick by are first thing in the morning when their feet hit the floor,,again after breakfast ,lunch and supper and right before bedtime, and then give a reward or the potty dance that my grandkids loved to do with me

  15. Julie Wood says

    When I started my daughter potty training, I used a mini-Elmo potty seat, which we kept in the living room, since she spent the most time there. I gradually moved it closer and closer to the bathroom, and eventually we worked our way up to a Dora seat that went right on top of the toilet. This really helped me be successful with her potty training!

  16. Lauren says

    I had my kids wear underwear at home so they could feel the wetness.

  17. Jessica Beard says

    Always be patient and start/restart when your child is ready.

  20. Kristin Goodson says

    My best tip is to have lots of positive reinforcements. Candy and stickers are great rewards. It’s also important, but tough, to stay consistent with training.

  21. jenn says

    Being consistent is key, and not to push them. They will be ready when they are ready – no child goes off to college still in their diapers or easy ups. Once you start to push and frustrate them, they will become anxious about it and that could lead to more issues.

  22. Natalie says

    My tip is to be consistent and to use older siblings as role models.

  23. amy rouse says

    Train in the summer. Much much easier without all those layers of clothes

  27. Thomas Murphy says

    Make it into a game so its fun for the kids.

  28. Elena says

    My tip is to be patient and to praise your child for using his potty

  29. Em Mahr says

    My best tip is to remain consistent. Also, my little one really responds to rewards when he uses the potty – positive reinforcement.

  30. Terry Maigi says

    Wait until they are ready! Everything goes so much smoother! And incentives are great too! We use MM’s and stickers!

  31. Rachel Baldree says

    Just wait until they are ready! I tried to force it with my first and my second wasn’t ready till he was 4. But when he was ready, he was 100% potty trained in 2 weeks. Much less fuss and simple!

  32. Melanie Montgomery says

    Notips yet, I am expecting myfirst.

  33. James Robert says

    Set the kitchen timer to remind you to keep going back in to try again and have rewards, sticker, m&m’s, etc

  34. Darlene Owen says

    My tip is to be persistent, take in every hr.

  35. Birdiebee says

    Don’t make potty training stressful for the child; use a reward system that they will respond to.

  36. Terri S. says

    My best potty training tip is to make a chart of the days in a week. Each time your child uses the potty (or even tries to go but can’t) let him choose a sticker to put by that day, Eventually, he/she will make on the potty and be so happy to get a sticker for his chart. Be patient and don’t rush.

  37. I think being consistent is very important in potty training.

  38. Sarah Hayes says

    Be as consistent as you can

  39. Annette says

    Start it when you can spend good amounts of time at home.

  40. Amanda Sakovitz says

    Make it fun and use a rewards system!

  41. Leela says

    Rewards and praise.

  42. Natalie F says

    Go cold turkey and skip the diapers.

  43. Dawn Monroe says

    I like the reward system. It will take attention, time and patience but keep a good attitude.

  44. shirley says

    All I can say is stay after it, set up a routine and it will all come together.

  45. kelly tupick says

    My best tip is to not push them. He or she will do it on there own. Also, a little reward is always a nice motivation for them too.

  46. Sarah Hall says

    My best tip is to be patient and keep your cool if they have an accident.

  47. Shannon says

    Lot of patience and encouragement

  48. steve weber says

    My tip is to always encourage your child and rewarding doesn’t hurt either 🙂

  49. We did a reward system it worked out great.

  50. Wait until they are ready, otherwise you end up training yourself, not them.

  51. JLin says


  52. Jessica To says

    My best tip is to not start potty training during a holiday or vacation.

  53. Nancy says

    My best tip is to wait until your child is ready and then dedicate your days to potty training. It’s easiest during warm weather when they are not wearing so many layers of clothing.

  54. Marilyn Nawara says

    Rewards worked for me — every time he went I gave him a box of Sugar Babies. Took about 2 days and he was trained.

  55. Karrie says

    Being persistant and keep trying!!

  56. Natalie S says

    Start when your child is ready and go cold turkey – underwear all day and pull ups for night time initially.

  57. Tara L says

    My best tip to use while potty training is to get your child very happy after using the toilet. I did the “potty dance” and came up up with a little song and it worked very well for my son. My sister struggled with potty training her daughter and I did the same thing with my niece and whenever I was around she’d use the toilet but she wouldn’t do it for anyone else.

  58. megan Tilley says

    Each child is different. With some stickers are great!

  59. Rebecca Orr says

    For us, naked time was the best. I understand not all families like to go that route though.

  60. Maureen says

    My biggest tip is to NOT rush the little one potty training. Let them take the lead and they will let you know when they are ready to be potty trained.


  61. DEBIJOT says

    The best tip is sticking to a routine.

  62. Soha MOlina says

    My tip is to be consistent but also remember set backs are normal.

  63. Melissa M says

    Have patience!

  64. Christina Foley says

    For me, I always say to wait until they show an interest… we talk about going potty like a big boy/girl, but once they show an interest or get excited about it – even if the interest is in new undies, we go with that. its worked out great with 3 or our 4 (the 4th is getting to that point now). My girls were completely trained in a weekend, my son was about 5-6 days….. if he was playing he hated to stop to go potty so that took a little longer to get through to him lol.

  65. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    My Potty Training Tip Is To Use A Reward System To Encourage And Track Progress.

  66. Denise says

    My tip is to wait until they’re showing signs of being ready

  67. Rebecca Parsons says

    For me it would have to be be constantly reminding of them to go potty.

  68. Stacey b says

    My tip is to have patience and not get upset when your child doesn’t seem to be progressing.

  69. Melissa Douglass says

    I am actually currently potty training my 3 year old right now. She is SO STUBBORN!! My tip would be to be patient!

  70. Patience, persistence, and fun.

  71. Shawna says

    My best potty training tip is to make it fun and use rewards that are motivating for your child.

  72. amyc says

    Be consistent, be patient, reward and do not force it.

  73. If possible an older sibling helps a lot!

  74. Ashley Tucker says

    Be consistent and patient!

  75. Keara B. says

    My best tip is to not rush it! Also, some enthusiasm can go a long way, and potty books were helpful for us.

  76. Jennifer B says

    dont force too early, I think the kid kinda lets you know and be patient

  77. Jessica Cox says

    I reward and celebrate every little victory in the potty

  78. Alina Hahn says

    Don’t give up! Just when we were about to just stop trying and give it a go later on he got the hang of it over night!

  79. sandra says

    I liked to use bribes

  80. Cynthia R says

    Positive reinforcement is best,no punishing and remember there will still be accidents even after they get it.

  81. Dana Cerrito says

    For my boy I used a Cherrio and told him to aim for the hole. It worked pretty good

  82. Barbara Montag says

    The most important tip is not to be upset about the oops!
    thank you

  83. Phylicia Phillips says

    Be patient and try not to get stressed. Potty training is temporary. They won’t still be in diaper in college

  84. Jessica says

    My best tip is to wait till your child is ready and then offer fun rewards.

  85. Trisha Burgess says

    With my oldest I used rewards charts. One sticker meant a mall prize and if she filled the whole week she got a new book!

  86. Laura says

    We haven’t begun potty training just yet, so I’m looking for all the tips I can get!

  87. Stephanie says

    we just started so i dont know yet

  88. Margaret Smith says

    My best tip is to remind your kids often about going potty and to make a fuss when they do.

  89. Ellie Wright says

    My best tip is not to scold them when they have an accident. It just makes them nervous and leads to more accidents.

  90. heather s says

    Make it fun not stressful

  91. robyn paris says

    Singing while sitting on the potty

  92. Aaron says

    Try and try and try again.

  93. Cynthia C says

    My tip is not to start too early and be patient with accidents.

  94. Don’t give into the pressure you may feel from outside sources to get your kid potty trained before he/she is ready. If they are not ready, you are in for a world of pain and frustration and it will inevitably take much longer than it would have had you waited.

  95. Julie says

    My biggest advice is to be patient. Every kid is different. Different things work with different kids. I read so many different books and articles giving tips. Don’t give up. You’ll get there eventually. Just keep trying! Julie smartsavvymama@gmail.com

  96. Thomas Gibson says

    The best potty training tip that I can give is to be patient and utilize a potty chair everywhere you go.

  97. james doyle says

    be patient and give rewards!

  98. Carol says

    Be encouraging!

  99. Seyma Shabbir says

    Be patient and show your kids how to use the bathroom!

  100. becca says

  101. Sara says

    Don’t push your child. Let them do it when they are ready!

  102. jberry says

    Always had luck down playing the importance of act.

  103. Kimmy Ripley says

    I don’t believe it is something that you should force. My daughter wasn’t interested until she was 3 1/2 years old. Once we started with it she got the hang of it right away.

  104. I find that waiting until the baby shows signs of readiness, and lots of praise work well for us.

  105. Sharon Kaminski says

    I think the best tip is be patient and try to have the kids go after meals.

  106. Kathy Davis says

    Be patient, yet consistent.

  107. Marty C. says

    Don’t have one yet. My daughter is just a little too young. She likes to sit on her potty chair and “read” a book, but so far hasn’t wanted to do more.

  108. Kelly Nicholson says

    Tell me your best potty training tip!


  109. Robin M says

  114. Liz Ticona says

    To be consistent & not to put too much pressure on our little ones…after all they won’t go to college with diapers….will they? lol 🙂

  115. Betsy Barnes says

    When we were potty training our son, my hubby got our son matching “manly-man” underwear, they would spend Saturday mornings, lounging in their t-shirts/undies, watching cartoons. My son would also follow him into the bathroom. We had him trained in no time, thanks to the father/son bonding time. 🙂

  116. Melissa Shirley says

    When your kiddo starts pulling their own diapers off when they are dirty, it is time to potty train.

  117. Rosanne Morrison says

    Keep a portable potty chair in the kitchen or wherever you are at the most.

  118. Katherine says

    Be consistent and start when they are ready not you

  119. Devon F says

    potty dance & sticker chart worked wonders our first time around 🙂

  130. Rachel Travis says

  132. michelle k. says

    Wait until they are ready, not everyone is ready at the same age

  133. Rachel M. says

    Well, our third to last potty trained child liked rewards like candy or small toys so we’ll see what our last child likes. We will try M&M’s and stickers or other small toys.

  134. Jodi Kershuk says

    I’m here looking for tips lol My son was so hard to teach to use the potty, he was 3 1/2 before he finally did. My daughter is almost 2 and I hope she is easier. The only tip I have is they will go when they are ready.

  144. darby says

    My little guy isn’t quite old enough yet!

  145. tonya dreese says

    To make sure they go potty every 15 mins and always give them a reward at the end of the day for doing a good job and pottying in the potty chair.

    I agree don’t force it.

  150. Michelle says

    Patience and take it slow

  151. polly says

    I never rushed my 2 kids…when they were ready. I always had books so they could be relaxed and made it so much easier. Both potty trained really quickly.

  152. Drop the pants! It’s weird, but I swear by this. Both of my kids spent about a week in long tee shirts and NO pants. As soon as they had no safety net, like a diaper or underwear, they got the hang of it right away!

  160. Erica B. says

    Be consistent.

  161. Paol Trenny says

    My tips are to be patient, make it comfortable for your child, and never get mad when he/she is unable to “perform” the duty…it is frightening for a child to have to poo or pee on demand.

  162. Jessica H. says

    I think the best tips are above, don’t rush it, let the child determine the timeline. They know when they are ready. Just provide opportunities for observing others and spaces they feel comfortable in. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

  163. laura ari says

    Don’t push them. If they aren’t ready, potty training is stressful. When they are ready, it will be easier.

  164. lana says

    just throwing away diapers and putting them un underwear

  165. Nannypanpan says

  174. Katherine H says

    I think the best thing you can do for your child when potty training is give them plenty of encouragement!

  175. Paula Michele Hafner says

    Wait until your child is old enough to really understand and to be able to tell you if they need to go potty. If you start too early it becomes a longer, drawn out process that can even turn into a toddler power struggle.

  176. kathy dalton says


  177. Laurie Emerson says

    My best potty tip is to make the bathroom as kid friendly as possible. We have put up pictures of cars, trains and even a moon and stars. The more soothing the room is the more your child will feel relaxed enough to go.

  178. Tina Reynolds says

    Really my best tip is make it fun and exciting and lots of patience

  179. Melanie Comello says

    I don’t have any true tips yet, i’m currently in the beginning stages of getting my little one to potty train. All i can say is, be persistent, but even more then that, have patience! There’s nothing worse then getting frustrated and letting you’re little one see that. Every kid potty trains on their own terms. And whether everyone tells you your’s should already be using the potty or not, just know, that it’ll happen, when it happens…..but it will happen eventually lol.

  180. Courtnie says

    I don’t really have any tips yet, as I’m not a mother yet, but I’d say patience!

  181. Sarah says

    My son responded well to a sticker reward system

  182. Sand says

    I don’t have tips yet. I’m looking for tips. We’re about to start the process.

  183. My best tip is to relax and remember each child is different.

  184. Janine says

    Haven’t been successful yet but we read our son a book called “potty” to get him ready
