Actress Kristen Bell is always upfront and honest when it comes to parenting and in a recent interview with Today's Parents she's shed some light on how she got her 5 year old out of nappies.
In the interview with her husband Dax Sheppard, the actress encouraged parents to go easy on themselves and not stress about others thoughts.
"You know what we have to do? We wake her up at about 11 p.m. when she’s like a zombie and put her on the toilet." Kristen said.
Her husband Dax chimed in saying "Yeah, we put a wet spaghetti noodle on the toilet once a night."
"I think it’s really normal and no one should feel ashamed if their kid has an irregular pattern for potty training." Kristen continued.
"And if you want to try this 11 o’clock make-them-pee trick, great, there’s no shame in any of it. Sometimes it takes kids until they’re even older than five! But I’ve never met a high-schooler who pees their pants all day. It’s going to stop at some point. And by the way, we’re making great, soft, absorbent diapers that they can pee in all night if you need them."
A handy trick if you're a similar situation as these guys!
