As many of you know, Gemma is the baby in our family. She is more than likely our last child, so I do remind myself not to rush things, savoring every moment, big or small. Little things like the way she says Statue of Liberty, calling it the “Pistachio of Liberty”, or renaming September, Uember when singing the months of the year. I just can’t bring myself to correct her because it is too darn cute. But when it came to potty training, I was ready for her to advance to the next level.
Having potty trained three children now, I learned each one of my children was completely different. For Ryder, I did everything by the book, and compared to most of my friends’ kids that age, he was trained pretty quickly. Siella basically taught herself. I’m not kidding. When Gemma came home from the hospital, Siella was just 21 months old and decided she was going to potty train herself. And she did. Even overnight accidents ended abruptly. Gemma, on the other hand, has been completely different situation.
Gemma’s potty training transition has come in many phases. First came the peeing on the potty. She loved to pee on the potty, but it took a long time for her to get to the idea of #2 on the potty. There were a good three months of accidents while out. Even today, she still has a hard time waking up to use the potty at night.
With three kids over almost a decade, we have used countless diapers over the years, but hands down, we’ve always made our way back to Pampers! Pampers have grown with my children since their first day of life (literally!), so it was natural to progress to Pampers Easy Ups as the potty training time had come with each kid. I trust Pampers will keep her feeling dry all night, which keeps me from changing sheets on a daily basis, as a result of leaky training pants.
Since Gemma is always striving to be like her big sis and bro, she has no problem wearing her Pampers Easy Ups before bed. They look, fit, and feel like real underwear, while still providing outstanding leakage protection. Pampers Easy Ups have a 360° stretchy waistband making it easy for little ones to pull up and down. Only Pampers have exclusive Extra Absorb Channels™ provide outstanding protection against leaks during the day AND night. The Dual Leak-Guard Barriers™ around the legs prevent leaks that can happen when they are on the move. And, the Hello Kitty design for girls make it even more fun!
I know it’s only a matter of time before overnight accidents are a thing of the past for Gemma, and then all three of my babies will be completely diaper free. Until then, I will cherish these moments, as they will soon be a distant memory. And a big Congratulations to Pampers Easy Ups for winning the 2017 Best New Product Award (BNPA)!
