Target and Huggies Pull-Ups Disney Character Calls for Potty Training Success! {$25 Target Gift Card Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, ckfrrt!}

I may have just forgotten (repressed?) the more difficult aspects, but potty training with Big Sister E wasn't all that hard of a process.

I remember just knowing that she was ready, talking to her about how the store was no longer going to let us buy diapers for her because she was a big girl, and finishing with my pièce de résistance: a No More Diapers Party.

Of course we weren't completely accident-free after that, but mainly we moved forward and never looked back. So... here we are two years later with Little Sister B and why does the situation seem so much more bleak?

She understands the concept, she has used the potty before, but somehow we're just not there yet. We haven't had the Party, so all hope isn't lost, but for now I think we just need a little more incentive to let her know that ditching the diapers is the cool thing to do.

Fortunately, Target and Pull-Ups have teamed up to surprise kids with the coolest of rewards when they successfully use the potty: Disney Character Calls. Who wouldn't want to continue being a big kid when a Disney Princess or a Disney/Pixar Cars character calls to say congratulations on their accomplishment?!

Designed to assist moms through their child’s potty training and development, the Huggies Pull-Ups training pants and Target exclusive program offering a Disney Character Call is free for anyone and everyone.

Simply visit BigKidCalls.com (or BigKids.mobi on your mobile phone) and sign up to have your choice of character send a congratulatory call to your child for successfully using the potty. After choosing between Cars or Princesses, you have the option of listening to the messages directly from the site immediately or scheduling them to call you for a more realistic experience.

We got started by heading to Target and checking out the great varieties of Pull-Ups for my big kid.

Even though Little Sister B loves Disney Princesses and Disney/Pixar Cars equally, we ended up going with all things girly for my little princess.

Pull-Ups are a great way to transition from diapers to underwear and I'm hoping that as we continue to use these great training pants that we'll get through potty training sooner rather than later!

But of course a little encouragement doesn't hurt, right? Waiting until we had a successful trip to the potty, it only took me a minute or two to quickly schedule a call to my cell phone (you have to reply to their text to confirm, so a landline won't work for these calls) and tell Little Sister B that someone special wanted to tell her what a good job she had done.

When the phone rang, I handed it over and she was pretty excited to hear the sound of a princess on the other end...

Definitely a fun surprise! For a very cool way to reward your child for going potty, don't miss Target and Pull-Ups offering free Big Kid Calls today!

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to head to Target and pick up Pull-Ups to help with their potty training progress as well, because...

One lucky person will win a $25 Target gift card from Huggies
to purchase your own Pull-Ups!

I wouldn't call it a tip, but being consistent has helped. Keeping tabs on the last time they went & asking/reminding them to go later.

I like to wait until I'm ure my kid is ready, even if that means that they're not fully potty trained by 2 (who is?)

Jennifer H said...

Put them in underwear for 3 days straight, yes there will be lots of accidents, but stay positive! By the end of the day 3, they will get the hang of it and will be going on the potty! Jenprincess88 at aol dot com

Having an older sibling or cousin show them helped my son learn to potty train easily in one weekend. He wanted to be a big boy like his cousins and wear big boy underwear.

Simple tip...get your kid a potty watch. They are great and it has an alarm to remind them to go.
it potty trained my niece in no time at all. She forgot her watch once and she kept running to look at the clock. She learned to tell time quickly too.

Meagan said...

We haven't gotten that far yet. But everyone says get a super cool potty chair, so that she wants to use it!

The best thing I did to help my potty train my son was let him pee on bugs or weeds when we were outside and he had to go. He wanted to go all the time and pee on the ants. It made him realize when he had to go.

My best tip is to wait and see signs of interest from the child. This worked perfect with my daughter and she was trained in no time. My son seemed to show interest for a couple of weeks and then backed off. I backed off, too. It wasn't long after that that he was back at it and everything went smoothly. Trying to push them seems to make them resist more.
