The time has come for E to learn to use the potty. We’ve had several different processes so far in our house. We can definitely confirm that each child is different, but that they won’t really do it until they are ready. At least in our experience.

This time, we are trying the path of least resistance. Well, maybe that’s what we call it. We are taking a slower, less pushy approach (which has been encouraged by the preschool she goes to for half a day.) They requested I pick up some Pull-Ups® when she went back in August. It was very easy to grab a package while I was at Kroger getting groceries.

E is highly motivated by stickers (and chocolate and candy if we are being honest.) We’ve been using a “Success Chart” (Scroll down for a free printable version and print at home stickers, too). which works for anything you are trying to accomplish. She also receives stickers at school. Wow, does a “special sticker” get a toddler excited.

When she saw Minnie Mouse she was super pumped. After a trip to Disney World and Disneyland, those are some serious motivators. And it helps that her shirt matches!

She also gets joy from the praise she receives from keeping her Pull-Ups® training pants dry. We’ve also found that she’s more excited to wear them because they look more similar to what her sisters wear and they have her beloved Disney characters on them!

We’ve also checked out the Pull-Ups tools and other resources available on the Big Kid Academy with things like potty timers, tips for handling setbacks (and being thankful for those Easy-open sides) and Disney interactive fun. Just like us, you can sign up with the Big Kid Acadamy and register to learn more and stay connected during the potty training process. You can also download the Pull-Ups Time to Potty app to help you keep track.

The Princess Success Chart (grab the free printable), is highly motivating.

I included grey princesses to see the goal and then the free Silhouette print and cut file (I used printable sticker paper, and a slow blade for some of the sharper cuts) has colored stickers slightly bigger to place on the chart when successful (however you deem that to be…telling you they need to go potty, going potty, trying to go potty, etc. It even works for other things like feeding a pet, changing toilet paper, etc.). You can also determine if you’d like to have a reward when a row is finished or the entire chart.

Of course, sometimes they will have their own idea of how to use the chart. The most important part, is dry Pull-Ups® and successful potty usage!

Pull-Ups® training pants come in several sizes: 2T–3T (18- 34 lbs.); 3T–4T (32–40 lbs.) and 4T–5T (38+ lbs). Thenew designs feature Doc McStuffins and Ariel for girls and Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Lightning McQueen for boys; and the three different kinds of gender and size specific training pants include: Cool Alert®, Learning Designs®, Night*Time Training Pants.

We are definitely a work in progress, but doing better everyday. And stickers always help! Do you have any potty training tips or tricks for us? Leave a comment sharing what worked for you!

    Candy – yes I bribed them with candy. And for the boys we did try the fruit loops in the toilet bowl trick (for the purpose of aiming).

    1. Here’s how that has gone “I’ll give you an m&m if you go on the potty.”

      “I DON’T WANT ANY M&MS!!!!!”

  2. Good luck, E! That’s exciting stuff! Going on the potty is so fun!

  3. My youngest wanted to snap a picture of his work every time. It drove me batty, but it worked. The picture and M&Ms, of course!

  4. Most people hated toilet training but I went the ol skool route and all our kids were trained by 18 months. My daughter was 16 months.

  5. I hope that princess chart does the trick! Potty training can be so tiresome, yet so easy for some! I’ve had it go both ways around here. Thank goodness for Pull-Ups!

  6. Yes candy is our bribery also! Thanks for the awesome printable, I need to get some of those sticker sheets for my Silhouette

  7. I LOVE the template for the reward chart! We also used a reward chart for my first. The second watched the oldest—not sure what’s going to happen with the third, but I’m bookmarking this! 🙂

    This is such a cute idea. My niece would have done well with this.

  9. I bribed my kids during potty training – incentivize is a better word – and that positive reinforcement works – we tried M&Ms, of course – the most important thing is to be patient!

  10. Whoa! Potty training feels like it was many moons ago. I love this idea-but don’t think the princess success chart would have worked for my three boys! We would have found a good substitution. Good luck.

  11. Totally agree- they get there when they are ready. Adorable sticker chart!

  12. I think this page is trying to have a giveaway, but Chrome doesn’t like it.
    Never had kids so no tips.

  13. Be consistent is the best advice I can give after potty training 3!

  14. Potty training is hard! My three year old was completely potty trained and after her baby brother was born, she regressed so we’re back at it again! Ugh!

  15. Cute printable! I found Pull-Ups super helpful when my son was potty training. We also used stickers and they were a HUGE hit! #client

    I bribed my son and grandsons with candy, toys, whatever I could lol… my daughter wasn’t too bad, I bought her some really cute princess panties and told her they were for big girls only and once she had learned to go on the potty she could have them.

  17. I bribed with stickers, extra reading book time, and treats. Then I let her pick out any new panties she wanted, everyday we did good the next day she would try her new panties, it worked.

    I’m so glad I found your post we have just run out of the Elmo stickers that came with the elmo potty. This princess chart will be great for my daughter 🙂
