Potty Training with Dry Like Me (PLUS Your Chance To Win)

Potty training is quite a big milestone for children, and even parents, to reach. It's a time when you can ditch the nappies, saving quite a few pennies in the process, but you can expect a few tears and tantrums along the way too. Therefore, anything that helps to make the transition that little bit easier is definitely appreciated by mums and dads alike!




Dry Like Me, the award-winning potty training pads worn in children’s own pants, were created by mums Jude and Di when they couldn’t find anything that helped to move their potty training children away from nappies and into underwear. They commissioned independent research, which showed the pads reduced accidents after only one week, and Dry Like Me are now sold by most supermarkets and online.

One size fits all ages of children, and there are three types to choose from: ‘Early Days’ for the start of potty training, ‘Original’ for the middle to end stages and ‘Night-Time’ to help children get dry at night. They are designed to be soft and comfortable, which they appear to be, and they are recommended by health professionals.  





To celebrate the release of the first Dry Like Me advertisement called ‘Miss Smarty Pants’, on Disney Junior, Nick JR, Boomerang, Cartoonito and Tiny Pop we have some Potty Training Packs to give away. Each ‘Smart Way to Potty Train’ pack contains four boxes of Dry Like Me pads, a ‘How to Potty Train’ book (written by Jude and Di) and a sticker reward chart, which is worth £24.


For more information on Dry Like Me potty training pads, as well as lots of tips and advice go to www.drylikeme.com or www.facebook.com/drylikemeuk.






For your chance to win 1 of 4 Dry Like Me Potty Training Packs you can enter via the Gleam entry form below.
The giveaway ends at 11.59pm GMT on 18th May 2015.
Leaving a comment is mandatory but there are additional entry methods available also.

Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I used a sticker reward chart.

    ReplyDelete

  43. Stickers. chocolate buttons and lots of praise help us! :)

  44. my tip would be to put girls in wellies - apparently they don't like wet feet! i haven't tried this trick yet tho!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Use a doll to show them on the potty and sit on the toilet yourself to show them it's ok, use a reward chart and try and make it a fun happy time with lots of encouragement!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Let your child lead, when they are ready it will be a lot easier

  60. Best potty training tip I have is be persistent, but patient. Lots of positive comments either way. Make lots of fuss when they go on the potty, make none when they have an accident and remain positive. Let them know that's all part of the learning process :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Lots and lots of praise when they manage to go in the potty! My daughter responds so well to praise!
