It’s all gone a bit potty in our house at the moment!

You know you’re in the early stages of potty training when you come into the living room to find poo on the floor.

What’s worse is that I blamed the cat, until a very proud Evie presented me with her potty, with a little nugget in it and said; ‘Mummy look it’s my poo’.

This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time – well, I wish it wasn’t at 7am in the morning and that I’d had a little more sleep or at least some caffeine – but, it’s perfect timing in the grand scheme of things, as we’ve just become Huggies® Pull-Ups® ambassadors!

How exciting is that?

It's All Gone A Bit Potty

Did you or are you dreading potty training?

I certainly am.

I didn’t think nappies would make me so emotional either, but as potty training is the last leap from the baby stage to full on little child, the thought of Evie growing up has pulled on my heart strings.

So what does it mean to be a Huggies® Pull-Ups® ambassador?


As new fully fledged Huggies® Pull-Ups® ambassadors, we’re going to be bringing you vlogs and blog posts of our potty training progress, so keep your eyes peeled for some serious mishaps, drive by wee’s, many shop runs to buy carpet cleaner (and wine) and lots of tears as we say goodbye to our baby and introduce our fully fledged little girl. 


On our journey we’ll be using the 6 steps to potty success – a programme developed in partnership with renowned child psychologist, Dr Heather Wittenberg. This programme can be used by everyone, so feel free to follow along and use the steps for your own potty training adventures.

We would love you to subscribe to our brand, spanking new Youtube channel so you don’t miss out on our poopy adventures.

Life Unexpected has never vlogged before either and we are TERRIFIED so make sure you check out our channel for some serious giggles as we bumble into this unknown territory. You can expect lots of Cornish beach shots, ice cream eating and seagull dodging, alongside our toilet training.

Being a Huggies® Pull-Ups® ambassador also means we will give you a first look into any offers and discounts that Huggies are currently offering.

Hello £2 Huggies Pull-ups at Asda right now! 😉

    I was really nervous about potty training Amelia but for us it actually went rather well, maybe that’s because I had horrendous images and had myself totally prepared to find s**t everywhere!! Good luck and I’m off to sub to your youtube channel now!xxx

  2. My youngest will be starting the potty training stage soon and I love it as they are just so excited when they get it right for the first time. I adore Huggies Pull Ups, they have saves us a few times!

    I am about to embark on this too so I will definitely be following along. Do you think you can use pull ups at night? Would they keep it all in?

    To be honest, having done it 3 times now, I found it best to go straight to pants during the day and wear pull-ups at night. Though messy at first, they can feel if they are wet and learn quicker. My first was dry in a week just before her 2nd birthday. The second, I kept putting pull ups on for ease when we went out and it dragged on until she was nearly 4!! The third I bit the bullet and went cold-turkey again and he was dry in a week on the second attempt aged nearly 3. The key is that they have to be ready. xx

    I’m nervous at the idea of potty training my son. He’s 18 months at the moment and showing a few signs already.

    congratulations becoming an ambassador! I am thinking of poetry training my daughter over summer, but like you say, its a big step so feel like I want to put it off haha

    I am literally dreading it this time as we have a few issues that are going to make it a lot harder I think, nice to all be doing it together though 🙂 x

    I’m really looking forward to following your journey as we take ours too. I’m an ambassador too joined a little later. It’s exciting and terrifying. And I get what you mean taking the step and loosing our baby to a proper little human. ???

    We’re just at the beginning of potty training too – about 2 weeks in! Or nursery said its best to go to normal pants during the day and then pull ups at night, so that’s what we’re trying! These tips from Huggies look great. Good luck with the vlogging, it’s fun!x

    Ah that’s fab! Good luck with it all. We’ve just recently potty trained Sophie and it was nowhere near as bad as I imagined it to be! X
