What is your child’s potty personality?
Our brief assessment will help you determine what kind of Potty Partner you have and provide a personalized lesson plan on how to achieve potty training success together based on the results.
When your Owl regularly has dry Pull-Ups® and is feeling confident, it is time to introduce the (drum roll, please) Big Kid Underpants. Explain to your Owl the difference between underpants and Pull-Ups, showing him the two side by side: You wear them the same way, you pull them up and down the same way, but they feel a little different and work a little differently. Your Owl will likely understand fairly quickly and show interest in taking the next step forward in mastering potty training.
Give your Owl ownership of this process. Take your child shopping and allow her to pick her own underwear. This will show that you have confidence in her ability to be successful.
Remember to find a special spot for the underwear when you get home, and keep up the excitement by allowing your child to wear them as soon as you get home. It’s Owls’ nature to try new things to see how the old rules work — or need to be adapted.
Keep using the Sticker Chart. You may also want to shorten the length of the Time to Potty app timer to help your Owl get to the potty in time to stay dry, until she adapts to wearing underpants.
