As a mom to four children, I can say each pregnancy and childhood experience is different. With my first born, I wanted to make my own baby food, use only the made-for-baby detergents and buy the very best diapers. With my second born, I was more lenient: I never considered making my own baby food, but still used baby detergents and the more expensive diapers — scared that if I opted to even try the “cheaper” diapers, we’d deal with unavoidable leaks. With my third and fourth children, I only became more worry-free, making more room to worry about being the best mom I could be. But with each child, I learned that regardless of price and brand, some diapers just weren’t absorbent enough at night… but the game changed when I discovered Sposie Diaper Booster Pads while shopping for my youngest child one day!
The decision to potty train my 2-year-old came when he leaked out of his diaper for nearly a week straight. He was drinking so much and those poor diapers just couldn’t handle the output… so we bought a potty and Sposie Diaper Booster Pads while shopping at Target one day. Trust me when I say there’s nothing worse than having to change clothes and the sheets of your bed at midnight (or 4:00 am) because a toddler’s diaper leaked everywhere!
Sposie Diaper Booster Pads can be inserted into a diaper to nearly double the capacity of your child’s diaper capabilities! (It adds up to 8 fl. oz. of absorbency, and works with both cloth diapers and any disposable one!)
The booster pads are made with super-absorbent gel, the key component being LEAKBLOCKER Technology, which locks in wetness and keeps your child dry, creating a stay-dry barrier to reduce diaper rash and irritation! They are also fragrance, latex and chlorine free, and made in the U.S.A.
We used a handful of the Sposie Diaper Booster Pads before being fully potty trained (in THREE days!) I appreciated the fact that a leaky diaper was one less thing busy moms needed to worry about. They definitely put an end to our leaks and made the transition from diaper to underwear a good one!
Potty Training Tips
- My biggest tip is to stay consistent and offer rewards for going. (Not for trying, but actually having some output.) We rewarded with M&Ms. In the past, we rewarded with marshmallows. Find something that your child doesn’t get often. You want this to be a treat!
- Go naked. Undress your baby/toddler, show them the potty and let them use it! *We went naked for 3 days. We were also potty trained in 3 days.
- Make the potty accessible. We put the potty on a beach towel, then set the potty in the living room.
- Stay home while you’re potty training! We picked a less busy week and stayed home for 6 days straight.
- Put a small potty in your vehicle to make on-the-go potty breaks easier!
- Celebrate the small things!
- Don’t switch between diapers and underwear. Stick with one so your child doesn’t get confused!
The Sposie diaper booster pads are quick and easy to insert, and can be found at Target, Walmart and Amazon.
