  • No. I wouldn't give a king size snickers to a toddler but something like a few m&m's are perfectly fine! Who says it's not?

  • No. That's what I will probably do when I potty train mine.

  • That is what we used for our two girls. My oldest loved reese cups so I got her the mini ones and each time she went we gave her one. My second daughter loved m and m's so that is what she got. My son just loved to aim for the cheerios so that worked with him. Not sure what I will do with my youngest daughter but we shall see.

  • we used smarties. gave a few after he peed and pooped. my son only wanted a smarty for the first week or so. then once he got the idea and feeling to pee, he didnt even ask for them.

  • I dont see anything wrong with it, I did it to potty train my daughter. I put the small rolls of Smarties, and would give her one piece every time she went in the potty. It worked! Which I was happy about, because I was due to have my next child very soon!
