Bubbles has been “in the process” of potty training for awhile now. We’ve had a lot of success in certain areas; she’s been nighttime potty trained for probably a year and always goes potty first thing in the morning. It’s the rest of the day where we have had a few challenges.
The main challenge being that Bubbles doesn’t like to miss out on anything. If we leave the room to go potty, we might miss the family of rabbits in the backyard or her favorite song might come on. Or worse still in her mind, she’d have to miss a few minutes of playtime. None of that is worth taking two minutes for a potty break.

I decided, though, that the lure of Elsa and Anna might be just too hard to pass up so I created a Disney Frozen potty chart. Each of the blue snowflakes earns a high-five and hugs plus the ability to play a quick reward game from the Pull-Ups® Time to Potty App on Mama’s phone. When she reaches a pink snowflake she gets to go into the Frozen Treasure Chest and choose an item.
One of her Christmas presents came in the box we now use as the Frozen Treasure Chest, but you could just as easily make one of your own with a shoebox or other small box. Maybe wrap it in some blue or snowflake-printed paper, or even some Frozen wrapping paper. The treasures inside were all collected from various after-Christmas clearance sales or from the “stash” that I keep in my closet.
We also made the transition from diapers to “big girl” Pull-Ups® training pants. This was initially a small point of contention with my husband, as his experience with training pants in general when Austin was young was not a positive one. Once I showed him the Pull-Ups® I picked up at Kroger, though, he agreed.
Unlike his past experiences, these training pants have easy-to-open sides for removing them (but not so easy-to-open that kids will accidentally unhook them when pulling up and down). And they have fun Disney designs – like Ariel and Doc McStuffins for the girls, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Lightning McQueen for boys. There are also three sizes to help you find the best fit: 2T–3T (18- 34 lbs.); 3T–4T (32–40 lbs.) and 4T–5T (38+ lbs.).
The Pull-Ups® Time to Potty App has actually been really helpful, too. You create a custom profile for your child (gender, age, wake & sleep times, etc.) and then you can set a timer. It suggests 45 minutes but you can change it based on your own child’s needs and progress. Plus if they are successful when it goes off, you get to play those games I mentioned above.
This system seems to be working for us. Bubbles loves stickers anyway, so between those, the app games, and feeling proud she seems more willing to take a potty break. Fingers crossed that this will be the final step towards full success!
