A few months ago the lovely Sarah contacted me
from Huggies. She wanted to send me some pull-ups
and I could write about them.
Well I've never promoted anything here that has been given
to me for free, but I'm a long-time Huggies fan
and I was more than happy to.
I brought some teeny tiny knickers and a jar of sweets
and together with a box of wipes and a lot of determination
the toilet training has begun.
It was just the push I needed to get Miss Annie-Rose
on the toilet training path anyhow,
and we could tick yes on all the signs in the information pack
apart from the wees in the potty thing.
I've done a lot of toilet training in my years
taught by my mum the way to go
and practiced under her watchful eye on my much younger sisters
(Hi Sharyn, Hi Jo, lol)
Miss Annie was very interested in the pull-ups and
at first all we did was have the potty around and wear the pull-ups
(big-girl pants) every now and again.
I must say they fit a whole lot better than the last time I tried them (Hi Reuben)
and have handy-dandy velcro on the side for fastening and unfastening.
Then we got to the stage where Annie would get up in the morning
and take off her nappy and put on her actual undies
and I felt it was time to get on with the process.
I won't lie, we have had many many accidents
(Thursday night = 14 pairs knickers in the wash)
but slowly but surely we are getting there.
The potty has become a fashion accessory to our living room
and Annie is starting to tell us "wees coming"
but because she is a bit ahem, unreliable
I'm going to buy another packet of pull-ups
for my mental health when we go out.
We had a bloggy meet up yesterday at Addington Coffee co
and we were talking about toilet training and I promised to post
the links to the Huggies site for Max
so that is what spurred me on to get this post written!
I'm also really impressed with the Huggies site
it's got tonnes of useful stuff in it.
(trust me they are not paying me to say this lol)
Here is the link to the toilet training info
Here is the link to some cool looking ebooks
Here is the link to a whole bunch of fun kids activities
Now I can't do a post like this without a giveaway....
I thought I'd put together a wee bunch of goodies
that would be good for anyone
but super good for a toilet-training mummy!
There's a healthy food mag, some vintage golden books,
some chocolate and hand cream for the mummy
and a vintage tupperware container you can put treats in for your toddler.
