GIVEAWAY: A BOX of Potty Training Alarm Diapers! 5 Winners! (US) -CLOSED-

Winners

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!

FIVE readers will win a Potty Training Alarm Diaper Starter Kit!  US only  

a Rafflecopter giveaway Giveaway will end August 20th at 11:59 p.m. EST  I was given Potty Training Alarm Diapers from Potty Patrol to review.  No other compensation was received.

The little alarm is genius! I hope I get to see if they work on my daughter! I did not know that diapers stay in a landfill for 300 years!
anna vaeth said…
This is neat. I am potty training my son now and I think this would really help. I like the idea of how it plays a song when they start to go so you can get them there when they need to go.
Anita Mitchell said…
The censor thing is great,and we do need to potty train my grandson.Our other grandbaby is due in 6 days!
aLilLacey said…
What a great idea! Children are great at making connections and it's true, like it said on the site, that they need to sit on the potty when they've just gone instead of us just randomly putting them there
Leah D said…
This would be terrific for my daughter. We are starting her potty training in September! The alarm is genius! :)
Ruby said…
In four months, I am planning to start potty training for my daughter.. I like that these alarm diapers would save lot of time in the process.
Janet W. said…
I love that Potty Patrol reduces the need for random sits on the potty! I've heard it's not good to tell them to sit on the toilet until they go.

The creators had 9 children!

Very cool post, aimee! Love it.
saraleh82 said…
I love that it lets you know right at the beginning of the wetting incident.
1955nurse said…
I learned that the creator had 9 kids! I love that it reduces the amount of "Random" visits to the potty - my grandaughter just says "No have to go NOW!" So these would be perfect, alarming when she DOES need to go!!! Thanks for the chance....
Michelle said…
I love the alarm for kids to associate the deed with the potty to have less random potty sitting.
Patty Schuler said…
they encourage potty training success!
Colleen M said…
I really like that Potty Patrol reduces the need for random sits on the potty that many children interpret as punishment.

I know they don't recommend using them at night, but my boys only wear training pants at night - and I think this would help them learn to wake up during accidents.

this is so cool i never heard of these alarm diapers
gallerhea said…
This is a great idea! A sensor? Genius!

We are at that stage right now as well!

I love that it lets you know when they are wet, so that you can hurry and take them to the potty.
Kathryn said…
I have been frustrated trying to train a child who doesn't seem to care too much. I would love these! I think it would make a huge difference in our progress.
Miss LaMonte said…
I like that these diapers are available for such a low price. The cheapest sensor diapers I have found run at least 60 bucks and they are not disposable. We have a major issue with bedwetting in our home (darn genetics) so these would be awesome to try out!!:)

wow... would love to potty train with this. Maria1272@aol.com

I like that these make potty time seem more like fun than a punishment.

I visited the site and I like that these diapers are more eco-friendly and help save the earth!

I like that Potty Patrol can help free you from the financial burden of diapers by helping your child become potty trained more quickly and easily.

I love how much money this would save us, with two toddlers potty training it's so expensive right now. This would a great economical and beneficial way to help our two toddlers feel more confident and help us as parents from the stresses of potty training! ;)
darlene lehman said…
I did not know that diapers stay in a landfill for 300 years thats horrible so better get this potty training over asap.
Joanna Falkner said…
I love the idea of these!

I love that the sensors are reusable...makes for more cost effective product!!!
Vanessa D. said…
Potty Patrol can significantly reduce the waste that is being created by current diapering habits.

Antonia21 said…
I love this idea what I like most about it that's theres a alarm that will go off when it feels wet so u can bring your child to the potty that's a very good idea
lisa said…
I like that it lets you know when they are wet
Beau said…
i like the helpful hints section on the website

So the alarm sounds when it feels moisture, at that point, is it too late? Sounds interesting and I'd try anything to get my little one to use the potty...
Anonymous said…
I'm skeptical. I've used a clip on potty alarm before with my eldest child during the night. The alarm sounds when moisture is detected yes, proceeded with a disoriented scream. I am interested in trying these with my youngest child. An innovated idea for daytime use!

My little one is day trained, but I still use diapers at night. But My friend is just starting with her daughter. It would be interesting to see how they would work for her. Why is it not recommended for night use? I would like to try it and see. It is a great idea!
kimberly said…
I like the idea that you and the child actually know when they pee because that's the hardest thing to figure out with a diaper on!
Anonymous said…
this is the cutest idea to make potty training fun for the little one. fingers crossed
degood said…
I like that the alarm is a gentle song to remind them that they have wet themselves and not a harsh alarm sound.

I like the "alarm" idea to let you know when they wet themselves so you can go sit them on the potty.

Michelle Corder said…
Best reason is to make the connection between cause and effect more quickly and effectively.
okasanbear said…
I have never heard of these and think it is a great idea. We are still having trouble with night time wetting, so think these would be fantastic...I did not know that dispos. diapers stayed in the landfill for so long!

Reduces having your child sit on the toilet at random times.
Beth Larrabee said…
The reusable sensors are awesome!
Lynette Paige said…
I like that it notifies the parent when the child is wetting and not after the fact. This is a great concept!

Very Genius! The alarm is a great idea!!

I think this would help my niece potty train a lot easier
Miranda W. said…
Potty Training Alarm Diapers are designed to notify you and your child when wetting occurs, so that you can place your child on the toilet immediately
I like that you know right when to put your child on the potty. I would love to try them out.
octoberthings said…
I love that the alarm not only notifies the parent but also helps the child link what she has done with being on the potty. We just started potty training our daughter this weekend so these would be awesome!
Jeni Mitchell said…
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the entire concept of these. I believe that these would definitely finish up training my young niece. I also love that the alarm itself is reusable. Genius!!!

I enjoyed browsing their site, and think they have a fantastic idea.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
