Prince Diaries: Our Potty Train Journey

I've been wanting to blog about this and share our potty train journey with Prince. I actually bought him potty train when he was 1 year old but unfortunately he's not comfortable using it so we stick with cloth diaper. When he turns 2, dito ko na siya pinagtyagaan ipotty train. I will list down all the things we've done and hoping it can help you too.

Communication

This is really important kasi dito talaga siya magsisimula. Parang eto yung magiging bridge niyo sa isa't isa. Kelangan mong ipaunawa sa kaniya kung ano ang pagkakaiba ng pag-ihi at pagdumi. We're using terms para mas madali sa kaniya like "wiwi" pag gusto niyang umihi and "pupu" pag gusto niyang dumumi. Of course, you also need to observe his body language. May mga pagkakataon na di sila nagsasabi kasi masiyado silang engage sa ginagawa nila pero makikita mo sa kilos nila na di sila mapakali kaya kami tatanungin namen siya kung naiihi siya o napupupu.

Learning by Examples

Not necessarily kelangan mong magpakita sa kaniya na ginagawa mo yun. There are actually books or songs about it to educate them. I remember my son actually first learned to pee when one of his playmate also peed near the yard/outdoor. Nacurios siya and then sabi niya wiwi din siya. Though hindi naman talaga siya naihi nun pero after that day he communicates whenever he needs to pee. Nagsasabi na siya samen. Hooray!

Patience

Given na tong tip na to. Hindi siya madali at walang shortcut para dito. May mga kids na isa o dalawang turo lang natuto agad meron namang inaabot ng taon. Iba iba ang mga bata kaya hindi naten pwedeng icompare ang mga gantong milestone sa iba. Sa case namen, nagstart kami na hindi siya pinapasuot ng diaper. Then I always remind him to tell us if he needs bathroom break. There are so many days na lagi siyang nakakaihi sa shorts niya which we totally understand. Also, I'm a working mom so nagagawa lang namen to tuwing weekend dahil hindi na kaya ng mom ko magexert ng effort for this. Kaya kelangan mo talaga magipon ng madaming pasensya.

My son is turning 3 years old and at this point hindi pa din siya fully potty trained. But we're happy because he's getting there. He's comfortable peeing on the toilet but not pooping. Pag magpoop siya magsasabi siya na "suot diaper." We already tried but, I think natatakot siya kasi masiyadong malaki pa yung toilet bowl para sa kaniya. Hindi rin siya comfortable sa potty train so we are giving him time at no pressure.

Of course, if your child is not yet fully potty trained, we will still need to buy disposable diapers especially not to interrupt his sleep. One of my trusted brand is Pampers.


We've been using Pampers since Prince's day 1. Super grateful ako dahil meron sila nung wetness indicator kaya hindi kami nahihirapan pang kapain or magkamali kung kelangan ng magpalit. Kaya ngayong toddler moments ni Prince we are still using Pampers.

Hands-on moms cringe at the sight of saggy diapers, but there's really more to the lawlaw than you think. Pampers, the trusted brand committed to your baby's comfort and care, helps with your baby's happy, healthy development by giving you less lawlaw diapers. The much loved magic gel channels found in the Premium Care line will be available in Baby Dry Taped and Pants variants.


Less lawlaw means more freedom of movement! Studies have shown that learning to walk without any bulk in the body may be the best for baby's motor development. All that bulk in lawlaw diapers compromises balance as he or she learns to walk.


Pampers understand that lawlaw is a major problem for moms and babies alike. This is why Pampers will be introducing a new and improved Pampers Baby Dry, now with magic gel channels. These new cores absorb wetness faster and distribute evenly throughout the whole diaper preventing sagging.

As these are your child's most crucial years, it's important to make sure they are provided with only the best products-especially quality diapers! Choose the new and improved Pampers Baby Dry for less lawlaw and go galaw mornings! That way, baby is kept dry and comfortable for a longer time, less diaper changes in between is needed, and most of all, you can finally focus on quality bonding time with your baby as he moves and learns to go galaw.
