Finally Diaper Free Giveaway Roundup

Our Finally Diaper Free Event is coming to a close with one more day left! I am happy to report that my son is wearing underpants instead of diapers 95% of the time now. He is staying dry almost 100% during the day, with the odd accident. We are still working on #2, but at least now he is aware that it is coming and he asks for a diaper. Potty Training is a process. For some it is a short time of transition and for others it takes a little bit longer. Every child is different and that is … Continue reading

Guest Post by @DidYouKnowCanada: Potty Training Twins

This post is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit. As a Mom of twin boys I always tried to tell myself I was never too concerned about potty training. I was on the “it will happen when it happens” side I said, besides, changing a diaper is easier than spending hours in the bathroom with the 2 of them. We did everything we were suppose to – had the potty out all the time, they (still) follow us to the bathroom, tried rewards, tried down playing it, tried no … Continue reading

This post is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit.You may wish to start at the beginning of our Potty Training Adventure with Post #1 and Post #2. Week #2 was much different than Week #1! We actually made some progress – slow progress but still moving in the right direction. By the second week of his potty training experience, my almost 3 year old son FINALLY asked for a diaper for when he felt #2 coming. I never in a million years would have thought I’d say that this … Continue reading

Guest Potty Training Tip from @stacemoe of MoeMoments

This tip is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit. As per the norm of every parent trying to instill the magical idea to a toddler, USE THE POTTY.. I’ve tried numerous tactics. The most silly being a full on Potty Dance, which the kids loved.. But it wore off. The sticker reward wore off. The high fives wore off. Until…. “The Potty Box” emerged!Now, the box is something that worked for my smallees, it’s worth a go! This wondrous box was made from a shoebox and it contained simple, … Continue reading

Finally Diaper Free: Potty Rewards (#FDF)

This post is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit. Some people don’t believe in rewards during Potty Training. I will admit that I was originally one of those people. My daughter learned how to use the potty practically on her own. It seemed like I blinked and she was out of diapers and staying dry all day and night. My son has been a much different story! We have given him his choice of mini candies for going #1 on the potty, we have given him stickers for a … Continue reading

This post is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit. You may want to start at the beginning of our Potty Training Adventure with Post #1. Our Potty Training Adventure started 2 1/2 weeks ago on Monday August 29th. Day 1:My little guy was so ready to start this adventure, this was shown by the fact that he only had ONE pee accident all day long and he was eager to wear his underpants during nap time! He had 1 poop accident too, but that was to be expected. And … Continue reading

Finally Diaper Free Event: Potty Training Essentials

This post is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit. It has been exactly two weeks since my son started on the Potty Train! Our Potty Training Essentials: There are a few items that have become essentials around our house over the last couple of weeks! The first item is a potty (we’ve tried the big one and there is not too much interest so far)! So, now we’ve resorted to using 2 little red potties that I bought at Ikea for something like $3 a piece. These seem to … Continue reading

Finally Diaper Free Guest Post: No Potty, No Cry from @jwarrender #FDF

This post is part of #FDF (Finally Diaper Free), an event all about Potty Training co-hosted by The Knit Wit. I cloth diapered. I’m not telling you that to be all sanctimonious, it’s just part of the story of how my daughter was potty trained. You see, I also work full time outside the home. While I was on Mat Leave the “few extra loads” of laundry that came with cloth diapering weren’t really a big deal. It just fit in to our daily routine. Once I went back to work hauling diapers up and down the stairs became a … Continue reading
