Having experienced the toddler years a few times now, I've learned a ton through trial and error. A TON. Especially when it comes to potty training. My one piece of sage advice? When it comes to toddlers, GO BIG or go home, friends. Toddlers tend to react well and catch on more quickly when you make a big deal out of big milestones. Potty training is indeed a BIG milestone moment, so make it a big deal! When you get ready to potty train, plan ahead and make sure to stock up on all of the essentials, like Huggies® Pull-Ups Training Pants.  Then, kick everything off with a potty party; complete with a DIY Potty Training Pull-Ups Cake and Potty Prizes!

 More often than not, they forget to include something in the moving plans because they had their minds on their kids. Worse still, some people might drop the ball with their kids while they’re planning the move. Luckily, getting your kids to participate in moving preparations is a good way to kill two birds with one stone.

 On the one hand, getting the kids involved gives them something to do — while making them feel in control of their lives. On the other, it reduces the number of tasks on your to-do list. So without further ado, let’s see how you can involve your kids in the moving process.
