Upcoming Product Review

It's always fun when a good thing comes along during a rough day.  Today CSN Stores contacted me to do a product review.  CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find everything from bedding to bar furniture, toys to trash cans, and pretty much anything you can think of.  I'll tell you even more when I review the product.  Wa-hoo!

It makes up a bit for the fact that I'm at home potty-training today.  I've lost count on how many sets of pants and underwear we've been through today.  Let me know if you have any killer tips on the subject!  Hope you're having a great day!

  1. Have you tried the thick potty training underwear and plastic pants? The plastic pants keep you from having to clean up messes on your floor, furniture etc.

    You can get them at Wal-Mart. Not sure if Target has them or not.

  2. OxyClean! At the end of the day, put all the soiled underwear in a bucket with 1/4- 1/2 cup of OxyClean & a squirt of laundry detergent. Fill with HOT water. Let soak overnight.
    You do not even need to pre-rinse anything and it will ALL come out.
    OxyClean has saved my sanity many times. I have a son who experiences encopresis on and off and he's now 8 years old. ~Sara

  3. M&M's were our best friend. Our oldest would do anything for them. It took us about a day of religiously, every 2 hours on the pot, and if he did something then he got a treat. It wasn't hard to break him of the M&M habit once we ran out either. Just told him there was no more. :)

  4. I'd say it's like puppy-training; just take them to the potty once every hour until they get the hang of it. That's the only way we ended up avoiding messes. Then, as little one progresses, stretch the time a little bit longer, and so on. Good luck!!

  7. i have three boys, two of which are potty trained. both of them were potty trained by 2 1/2. all i heard was how hard it was to train boys, thankfully not so much. i waited until it was warm enough weather that they could just hang out in their undies. they were pretty little so they liked to sit backwards on the toilet for some reason! also we had a "potty jar" filled with skittles or m&m's. they got 3 every time the went. and they got a bigger treat like a dum dum for pooping. good luck!!

  8. We keep special books in our bathroom to read. I found that sometimes if they sit for a few minutes they realize they do have to go. Instead of treats, I give me girls pennies when they potty. When they are "officially" potty trained, they get to take the money the earned to buy a special toy at the store. Funny story: When my second daughter went to the store with her money, she bought a toy phone. On the way home, she burst into tears. I asked what was wrong and she told me that she didn't get to buy a train! She thought she was actually getting a potty TRAIN! Anyway, don't stress too much over it. Have fun. Bad things happen when you push them before their ready. So just take his cues and celebrate the small victories!

  9. potty training the little man??? we had our kids outside all day without pants on. if they had to go, dad showed them how to pee on a tree. peeing on a tree was cool!! we said peeing in the toilet is even more fun. it's harder to hit. they said cool i want to try. and that was it one day. no messes at night. we got sooo lucky. plus we live in the country so half naked boys running around...well, no one was going to see it.

  10. I've never had to potty train boys (I hear they are way harder), but I loved the cloth training pants with a waterproof diaper cover over (or rubber pants). It helped them to know that they were wet, but kept them from peeing all over everything in the process.

  11. I honestly just waited for the day that my daughter came up to me and said she wanted to wear panties - I didn't "train" her at all. :o) That was two months ago, she's been in panties ever since (still wears a diaper at night though) and we've had, in total, 3 accidents, all of which happened when we were out of the house and just couldn't physically get to a potty in time. Good luck!

  12. My second was crazy easy to PT. But my first, it took something like six months and it was Suckfest USA. What finally got him was when my husband taught him to pee outside. He showed him a rock, said "aim there" and what do you know, the kid was trained from there on out. A coworker had suggested trying "outdoor peeing" a few weeks before, but I was like what the what!? But that is what worked for my first son, so I'll glady (though slightly ashamedly) pass it on.

    Good luck.

  13. Teaching little boys to sit down and pee is a knee saver! You don't have to get on them and scrub the floors all the time! I also let my kids run around naked and we start PTing about 12 months. My three oldest were potty trained by 18 months (and one of them is a boy!).Good Luck...

  14. I just waited until my kids were ready and wanted to do it themselves although my son waited a bit longer (three and a half). He was fine with weeing and I left a potty out in the bathroom and he started sitting on it to try it out and, once he felt comfortable, he just went on the toilet by himself (he never ever actually used the potty). I didn't really 'train' at all and I wasn't stressed about them having to do it by a certain age. Just play it by ear.
