There are many kinds of potty training pants available on the market to assist with the potty training process.
- Cloth Training Pants
- Waterproof training pants
Training Pants for toddlers come in different sizes with different designs for both girls and boys.
Potty training pants are usually designed in such a way that they can easily be pulled off without the child requiring assistance. This helps to gradually get used to underwear which some children find quite tricky.
Training pants need to be relatively loose so that they can easily be taken off to avoid accidents caused by unnecessary delays.
Since the potty training process usually takes some time you will probably encounter a few “accidents” on the way. Waterproof training pants make these incidents more comfortable for children. Waterproof training pants are very helpful for kids who experience potty training problems.
Many parents decide not to use potty training pants and prefer to start the potty training process with regular underwear. For some kids this may be a perfect solution. There are kids who have no accidents and complete the potty training process almost instantly. If the child does have an accident then all of the clothes need to be changed and the surface on which the child sat needs to be cleaned (can be tricky if it happens on your aunt’s new sofa!). If you are unsure if you need training pants you can start the potty training process over a weekend or holiday when you know that you will be home to supervise and take care of any accidents.
