That’s right, potty training a boy again! You may remember a few months ago where I attempted to potty train Gunner, my second born. You may also remember how miserably I failed. Oh, you missed all the fun? Watch it here.
So, after my failed attempts I gave it a break, but I’m ready to try again. With school out for the summer, I figured it be the perfect time to lock myself indoors for 3-4 days in a row to really get ahold of this potty-training thing. That’s how they do it?
I need to be fully prepared to begin and this partnership with Sam’s Club and Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear couldn’t have come at a better time! Stocking up for all the accidents that will come because for some reason Gunner enjoys the stench that comes from his behind.

Besides being ready with the Pampers, I need to prepare other things- I’ve done the whole “Let him watch and learn,” well, daddy has, and he has yet to be motivated.
Other tips I’ve been given:
- Show him that his favorite stuffed toys potty too
- Decorate the potty
- Get awards ready such as crackers or lollipops
- Set aside some naked time. This scares me!
- Stay in for at least 3 days
And staying in for a minimum of 3 days is essential. I also believe that’s one of the main reasons I failed—I was going out and about on the second day. MANY accidents happened!
So, I take this collaboration with Sam’s Club and Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear a sign to try again! I’m ready, are you ready to see me try again?
