Potty training....it's lovely isn't it? Of course I wish the process really was. :) Training your child to use the potty can be tough. The techniques for training our children are endless and can be frustrating. I've been working with my little guy casually for awhile now. He doesn't have a ton of interest in taking time out of his busy play time to stop and use the potty. It's been hard for him to let me know when he goes #1. With #2, Its more obvious, and he still doesn't care. :-/
Recently I had the opportunity to try out Potty Patrol's "Potty Training Alarm diapers." I was given a starter kit which includes 24 alarm sensing diapers, that have snaps on them for an alarm to attach to them. Two blue stripes run from the top of the diaper, all the way around. These stripes sense when your child has "gone" in their diaper and sounds an alarm; a little siren, followed by "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" played twice. The next step is to immediately place your child on the potty while the event is still fresh in their mind. The makers of Potty Patrol, two Utah dads, Tim and Tait, decided "there had to be a better way" to potty train children. They say that:
"Placing your child on the toilet immediately, will help them link cause and effect more quickly and effectively and achieve greater potty training success. "
I'll admit, I was a little skeptical of this. Mostly because of my child's personality of not caring if he's got a nasty diaper or not. I also thought he would rip the sensor off, but he didn't seem to care. In retrospect, it actually seemed like he thought it was cool. Boys lol! I was pleased when the alarm went off and it was finally like he got it. Later on when I had put him in bed without the alarm (it's not recommended using the alarm at night, although you can), he called me to his room and indicated he went potty. This is not my child's usual behavior, but hopefully this will be my child transitioning to wanting a dry diaper, and wanting to use the toilet. *sigh....wish me luck! We can do this right!? Although he isn't fully potty trained yet, I'm hopeful if I remain consistent with using this product, and follow the directions he could be.
Wanna try these awesome diapers out with your potty-champ to be? Pick them up at select stores or on Potty Control's online site. Starter boxes are $29.99 and refill kits are $19.99. Another option....WIN some!
