Pull-Ups Potty Dance

Pin It I must admit we have NOT been potty-training rock-stars in this household. Both of my boys took ages to potty train... but once they did it took about a day each. And a promised toy each. Totally worth it. I just didn't have the energy to push it and at times I seriously wondered if they would be wearing diapers to college. But no. They both successfully mastered the potty in plenty of time to attend junior kindergarten diaper-free.

I thought Olivia would be easier to train. I had heard that girls are easier to train. And I suppose that might be true... as long as you don't move twice in one year.

Olivia has been ALMOST completely trained 3 separate times over the past year. But here we are with a very non-trained 3 year old little girl. We bought her pretty pink panties. We have two special potty-chairs... one for upstairs and one for downstairs... one of which has Dora on it. We've read several potty books with her over and over again. We have sticker charts and rewards. But alas, she just is not ready yet I guess.

Olivia has absolutely no problem using the potty. She likes using the potty and does so regularly. She just ALSO pees her pants regularly. And since I can only do so much laundry in a day without wanting to tear my hair out we have special keep-mommy-sane panties called Pull-Ups. Oh how I love pull-ups!

You've probably seen the commercials and know that Pull-Ups has a new thing going on- the Pull-Ups Potty Dance. It is the latest thing we are trying in our quest to rid ourselves of diapers forever!!


These two videos feature funny lady and mom Jessica Holmes and Traci Melchor from E-Talk. They have filmed their own potty dances with their kids.


The Pull-Ups Potty Dance provides kids with a fun ritual, making the process of potty training a positive and happy one for everyone.  There's nothing like a bit of dancing to motivate success and make potty training something that our little ones enjoy and look forward to! Check out the Potty Dance instructional video here.



Olivia loves the dance and I sure hope it works!

Know what? I say use those adorable pullups until Olivia is ready to go on the potty. That day will come, I promise. In the meantime, let her be stress-free about the whole issue until you rule out medical stuff. Then if all's well, refer to the Potty Training in Less Than a Day system, and go for it. Heck, she may still make it to pre-K!!
