Potty Training & Pull-Ups Prize Pack Giveaway {Sponsored}

The littlest Marino is turning into quite the big boy.   It’s hard to believe that in just one month, we’ll be celebrating three joyous years since the day we first met him.  He’ll soon transition into a brand new bed and I’ll be revamping his shared bedroom to reflect a bit more of his growing interests.  Although I’m often nostalgic over tiny baby memories, I am so proud of Adrian’s growing independence.  We’re frequently celebrating what feels like huge milestones in casa Marino, including Adrain’s potty training success (thank you big sister for all your help with this one)!

Three cheers for our big boy!  We’re celebrating every flush!

Pull-Ups has helped support our potty training journey with their Disney character infused products.  Just like the Disney Princesses helped motivate my Lucia Paloma to kick diapers, Adrain is bonkers over the Cars toilet-seat that was sent to him.  He is comfortable in his Cars Pull-Ups and sleeps in them at night.  Since their cool learning designs indicate when he stays dry (designs fade when wet), morning celebrations are now a frequent occurrence.   I’m a huge fan of the Pull-Ups flushable wipes – as mama is the principle tush cleaner-upper over here!

Proudly stating the name of all of  the cars on his new toilet seat.  

We’ve even had the chance to commend Adrian’s efforts in 3D by downloading the Pull-Ups Big Kid App. Since every try deserves a little celebration, children earn virtual stars that are used to unlock special rewards.  This is a cool activity for my praise-seeking toddler because he earns short games with his favorite Disney Characters.  Adrian now asks to see his beloved Buzz Lightyear as soon as he finishes washing his hands.

This is part of a compensated campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pull Ups.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.  



  1. Have lots and lots of patience and wait for signs that they are ready

  2. Be patient and prepared for a mess

  3. Consistency is really helpful especially between parents

  4. Everytime I go to the bathroom I take my youngest daughter with me. Watching me sit on the toilet made her want to sit on hers, and she got comfortable with it very quickly. We cheer eachother on when we go potty, lol.

  5. I was ALL or going with the pull-ups…until the other day when my son pointed to the bathroom door, said he had to pee, and went on OUR toilet! That was that! He's had a few accidents but since then he's been going commando (don't have enough pants/underwear for him!) and he's doing great!!! I didn't think it would be THIS easy! 😉

  6. Plenty of patience and let them lead.

  7. Plenty of patience and let them lead.

  8. Keep it consistent and use lots of patience.

  9. i tend to wake my boys up during the night for potty break so they dont wet their bed s

  10. To follow your child's lead. Too many of my friends want their kids potty trained by a certain date and I think the pressure just sets up “failure”. My son is not ready at 2.5 and I'm ok with that!


  11. My best tip is to buy a new toilet seat with a built in potty seat. So much easier!

  12. My best tipis to follow your child's lead

  13. rene miller says

    take them when you go

  14. I guess my biggest tip is to wait till they're ready.

  15. My daughter was potty trained in one day- I simply took her diapers and she couldn't stand it! My son is another story, I have been trying to potty train him now for months and he has no interest!

  16. My best tip is to prepare yourself for it mentally. It is not a fun process.

  17. We've done the best with rewards, such as a sticker chart.

  18. I like to start slow. Use the potty a few times a day, and keep adding more, then back off a bit to let them have control. They will use it when they are ready. Don't feel like you have to do it all at once.

  19. Have boys aim for Cheerios in the toilet.

  20. Patience is a must.

  21. I trained my daughter using a food timer, every 30 minutes it rang, I would put her on the potty, worked great!

  22. Laura Jacobson says

    My best tip is to not push, and take lots of potty trips. We have some books by his little potty and sometimes we sit and read!

  23. My best tip is to not worry about training based on age, what I mean by that is that as soon as my son turned two everyone told me he had to be trained. We tried but he was just not ready and it ended in failure

  24. Patience! My oldest grandson was scared at first, but after the first few days he finally got the hang of it. Have a great reward waiting for them, too. My grandson loved M&Ms.

  25. Listen to your kids and don't force it. Until they are ready it's not worth the mess or hassle.

  26. dont rush them…they will get it

  27. Patience, consistency, and rewards are my tips for potty training

  28. I've only done it once so far, but I took her to the store and let her pick out her special big girl panties. Then she tried really hard not to get her Princess panties wet, because if she did, she had to wear a pull-up again until the Princesses got washed and dried. It only took a couple days before there were no more daytime oopses. Still had the occasional night time one for a few months.

  29. do it when they are ready!

  30. Have yet to start PT but I guess you need loads of patience.

  31. Consists, worked wonders with me, also don't do it when you are in the middle of moving.

  32. try and try and try again.

  33. Offer a small reward for using the restroom each time! My mother in law potty trained our oldest son by giving him a penny for every time he used the potty, he was small so that was a big deal to him at that time and he even saved up a good amount of money!

  57. I haven't gotten there yet, but as a child, I was successfully bribed with lovely lacy panties with the little embroidered roses and lots of logic about growing up and not having pee-pee-poopy pants… totally worked!

  58. I haven't gotten there yet, but I do know that as a child, my mother bribed me with the big-girl pretty, lacy panties with embroidered roses, that I could only wear if I wasn't going to have accidents. She said that, and a bit of logic about growing up and not having pee-pee-poopy pants definitely worked with me!

  105. My best advice is Patience! Rewards help also.

  106. Patience and minimal rewards

  107. Don’t try pushing it before your kid is ready! I had big issues with my oldest son, because I tried potty training him when he was a year old. It ended up blowing up in my face, and he didn't become fully potty trained until he was three.

  108. With my first I just gave up changing him and made him quit what he was doing and go shower change clothes, bundle up and take it to the garbage bin. He decided to train perfectly within 3 days. The others have been easier.

  109. Always use a reward system.

  110. Wait until they are ready & willing before you even start & also give a reward!

  111. Don't ever get mad at your child positive encouragement is always the best and know that every child is different!
