Giveaway: Pot-Tee Prize Potty Training System


Who ever said Potty Training was easy? Please let me talk to that person - because I can tell you from my own personal experience --- it is not! I am currently in the process of potty training my two year old daughter. It's hard - something I was not anticipating. I mean my daughter is smart and doesn't like to be wet or dirty - she tells us when she is going and lays down easily for diaper changes --- so I seriously did not anticipate World War III breaking out in our house over potty training...well, I've tried everything - friends have said, "use M&Ms", "just tell her this is how it's going to be and sit her on the potty", "encourage her - tell her she's a big girl", "don't use pull-ups - go straight for undies", "use a little potty chair" -- and the list goes on. And I can say that none of it - absolutely NONE of their advice has helped me...any. My daughter shows no interest in going on the potty. She knows how - b/c occassionally she will do it...but definitely not regularily.

GIVEAWAY DETAILS: So when Pot-Tee Prize contacted The Trendy Mommy a few weeks ago - offering to give away one of their Pot-Tee Prize systems to one of our readers - I said YES! definitely! Please help out some other mom that is going through what I'm currently experiencing. So guess what ladies --- one of you will be getting your very own Pot-Tee Prize System. Just leave us a comment telling us why you deserve to win! Contest ends January 21st at midnight.

The Original Pot-Tee Prize Grab Bag gives you all the tools you’ll need to easily and effectively potty train your child in one convenient, cheerful package. Naturally, this critical step in your child’s early development can be stressful and time consuming. This system adds structure to the potty training process creating a positive and memorable experience for you and your little squirt. The Pot-Tee Prize System includes:
  • Whimsical Sticker Chart
  • GuideFilled with proven facts to help ease you and your child through the transition
  • Diploma
  • Pot-Tee Prizes

We've tried everything but still have a hard time getting him to go...really go...if you know what I mean:) This is one fabulous idea!!

Hillary Kouba said...

I definitely need this! I have been procrastinating...but with our third baby on the way, our oldest who is 2 1/2, needs to be out of diapers ASAP!

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

boy, do I need this.

I have a 3 1/2 year old who NEEDS some motivation ;)

The Henrie Family said...

I have a 2 year old that could use some extra incentive to use the potty! I would love to try this!!!!

Jen said...

I so need this for my little stinker - we thought we had him trained 3 months ago. We did the whole reward thing and he was doing REALLY good until he decided he didn't like the big boy pants anymore. Now he's back in pull-ups. A fresh, new reward system would be SO FUN to try.

Nicole said...

I love the incentive idea! We could definitely use some fresh ideas as we get ready for #2 due in April.

Myrna said...

HELP...obviously my 2.5 yr old is winning the potty struggle. I tried setting timers, I tried treats, I tried the big girl panties. Nothing is working. I need this.

chris said...

My son is 3 1/2 and I have been trying to potty train for 9 months ow. He has NO interest. Maybe this would help us!!

Desta said...

I need this so badly. I have a 2 and a half year old girl who shows absolutely NO interest in potty training. Between her and my 3 month old I do nothing but change diapers all day. Please pick me!

Mary Avinger said...

My little guy isn't old enough yet, but I am kind of dreading it. I could use all the help I can get. Thanks for the giveaway.

The Dreamer said...

I need this because my son has a mind of his own and I'm a little scared about what will happen when it comes time to motivate him to use the potty. Plus he's a lot like his daddy and according to the mother-in-law this could be a long and drawn out process. :)

thanks!

rockle said...

Oh! We have just started the potty training process with our almost-two-year-old ... some of her friends at preschool are using the potty, and she wants to, also -- until we sit her there. Then she does everything BUT go potty! For, like, days at a time, if we'd let her. (Of course, she'll let us know when her diaper is messy. Kids.)

PS said...

I always thought girls were suppose to be easy and boys hard. Well, when my boy was 2 he literally looked and me said poop, and ran to the bathroom. He was trained in a week and staying dry all night right after that. With my little girl, she is now just two and has had peeing down FOREVER but will not poop. She will lay on the floor and scream if I even ask her to try...we've tried everything! Bribes, treats, anything!

Rebecca said...

This sounds like a great tool to use in potty-training! Our little guy is mostly trained but WILL NOT go #2 on the potty, so we are still desperate for ideas and motivation for him! We also have one more little one to potty train in a couple years.
Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

JESS said...

I think the Pot-Tee Prize is more fun motivation for me than for my daughter! I am shellshocked from the awful potty training of my now 4yo. Seriously. Freaked out about starting the process with my 2yo. Even though she seems ready (if ready means filling the toilet bowl with "papers!")

I am desperate to try this! I believe in the fun reward system as motivation and I think my 2 yo would really get in to this.

Nad said...

My little girl is 23 months and has so far been harder to potty train than her older brother at that age. I thought girls were supposed to be easier to potty train than boys?! I need help!

Jess said...

I would love to win this for my friend! Her daughter is 3 and still in diapers. Help me help her! LOL Thanks for offering such a great giveaway! I may need one of these in a few months also :)

Abby said...

I want to give this to my sister in law who is getting ready to potty train my niece. Thanks!

megankortepeter said...

I haven't tried potty training yet but I've heard horror stories and I would like to prevent them with this package.

socmama said...

I'm trying to potty-train twin boys and I've tried about everything I can think of! We need all the help we can get because their little brother is about to hit potty-training age and I'm desperate to get the first 2 out of diapers. Thanks!

bjcooney said...

Oh! With baby number 2 on the way, it would be so nice for baby number 1 to get out of her diapers! We would LOVE this!

Aprilshowers said...

I have been putting off potty training my daughter Emily b/c I remember how hard it was with my first especially when you work full time and rely on others to stick with it also. This would be a good incentive to get going for me!

Ashley said...

OH I so need this! My son is understanding the concept, but still not grasping the whole effect. He will tell me right when it's too late! With a little prize system, I could possibly get his attention!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Denise said...

We're just starting to figure out a plan of attack for potty training my just-turned-two daughter, so this would be perfect for us!

Brittany Skloss said...

We are just getting ready to start the whole process. This would be perfect!

Danny and Shannon said...

We will be starting this soon and would love all the help I can get!

Mrs. Hilton said...

#1 is almost 2, and #2 is on the way!! Should be getting ready pretty soon. I was just searching this morning for tips on getting started! Bribery has working in our house so far ;)

Becky said...

Potty Training is testing my very last strand of patience, and a system like this seems brilliant! I could use any help there is to offer. Thank you for such a great give-away!

wigget said...

i deserve to win because i have a little boy who will soon be in need of learning to potty train, and he is quite the rebel

Lyn said...

$17 for super hero under-roos. $32 for a special musical potty chair, $24 for a second potty chair because the musical one scared him. $10 for flushable wipes. $7 for the foamy hand soap that goes with the wipes. Getting FREE motivation that I'll need to make it through the next 3 months of potty training...priceless!

Tara said...

Oh....I'm just going to say it straight up...I'm officially begging.

I have twins, boy/girl, that are ready to start. Slightly interested, but i'm having a hard time because they use the potty differently, girl is more interested, boy rather pee on the patio...it's just totally potty chaos. good thing is...they're a sucker for a treat or toy. This would be PERFECT! please pick me...I'm in serious need of help! The diapers for 2 are KILLING us as well. I'd be forever grateful! ♥♥♥

Jocelyn said...

Have a one year old that we will be starting to potty train soon. I would love to have this to do it right the first time!! Hope I win...it looks like a fabulous prize!!

Anonymous said...

Wow... what a wonderful giveaway! My daughter knocks on the bathroom door- then comes in takes the toilet paper and blowes her nose and then wipes herself!! With her clothes on...! I think were getting close!She is 20 months old and this would be a great win! Thanks soooo much!

Jamie Hollis said...

Love it! This is great for children to feel good about themselves! What a great giveaway! My daughter is 20 months old and is starting to show signs of "the big change"! Thanks for the chance to win!:)

ckschaalma said...

My 3 1/2 year old son wants nothing to do with the potty. Maybe this would help.

Amanda said...

Our daughter turned 2 just yesterday. One of our gifts to her was the pretend potty and accessories to go with her Bitty Baby she got from Santa this Christmas. :) This is perfect timing to try something innovative and super cool! Thanks for the giveaway!!

3boyzmom said...

My son recently turned 2 and I know potty training time is coming sooner than later!! I need help!!

EczeMama said...

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

I have been trying and trying to potty train my youngest, she just doesn't seem to care that she is wet!

I am thinking she needs some extra incentive! Please let me win!

Andria said...

My 3 year old is not interested in potty training. This is super cute and might be the motivation he needs. Thanks for the chance!

kellyache[at] hotmail.com said...

At the end of my rope here. We've tried stickers, pullups, big girl panties, smarties, mommy's lipstick, gum, potty books, a doll that pees, potty bench, potty seat on toilet, going bare bum, using a timer and, shameonme, pretending she didn't poop and leaving her in it until she complains. It's not working; it's been over a year of these antics. I know eventually it'll click, but it's more frustrating than I ever imagined.

Leah said...

One of my dearest friends is potty training her sweet daughter, but it's not always going as planned. I can tell that this gift would just cheer MAMA and daughter up, and that potty training would be so much more fun instead of so serious!

Thanks so much for this give~away! : )))

Melanie said...

I have a child that's almost two, and we want to get her started training as soon as possible. Why do I need it? Because her brother was four before I had him fully trained. I don't want to go through that again!:-)

Valerie said...

I would love to win this! My son is nearing two and potty training is looming like a big dark cloud in our future. He is famously hard to motivate because he is so easy going (just like his daddy - a blessing and a curse!) and I know potty training is going to be yet another frustrating battle. He won't fight me, he just won't do it. The first time I gave him a time-out, he sat on the time-out mat loooong past the allotted time, because he was having such a good time singing to himself. If we take a toy away as a punishment, he just says "bye bye toy!" and moves on. *sigh* Potty training could be interesting...

christin said...

what a great idea!! I will be starting to potty train my son in a few months and I've heard boys are harder than girls. My daughter did very well, but I am just so nervous this time around...any type of encouragement(for him and myself:) would be AWESOME! Thanks!

Rachel C. said...

My sister-in-law is in the process of potty training my nephew, so I'd love to pass this along to her!
Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Meg said...

We could really use this for our two year old. We have another on to they way and would like to get one out of diapers!

Xenia said...

I just had my second child one month ago and I could definitely use this to help convince my 2-year-old to be a big girl and get out of diapers!

Thanks!
