Real Life Potty Training Stories

At One Proud Toddler we realize potty training happens in real life, not in a laboratory. Parents might be aware of the training techniques that we and many others swear by, but juggling work, the arrival of a new child or one of the other myriad curve-balls life can throw your way ensures every potty training journey is unique.  

 In recognition of this fact, we decided to curate this new blog series showing how real parents potty trained their real kids. Our hope is that these stories help motivate readers and serve as a source of relevant examples, tips and tricks that can be incorporated into their own potty training journeys.
