I'm a big kid now

Potty training hotline

The makers of Pull-Ups Training Pants have launched a toll-free hotline with potty-training tips for parents and a motivational song for kids.

Call the hotline at (877) 424-4543 and sift through the automated directory to let your child hear one of three upbeat ditties written by James Patrick Dunne. The verses are designed to encourage children, motivate them as they train and congratulate them once they are successfully potty trained.
