Three cheers for potty training! Hey, now…quit the eye rolling. I know, I know…it’s not always the easiest thing to do as a parent, but it is quite fulfilling once you can get your kiddos on the track to dry pants!

Potty training can feel like an overwhelming process, and when minor leaks or accidents occur, it can be a disappointment. Pampers Easy Ups helps makes this journey a little easier by providing better leak protection than the leading competitor.

Parents want potty training to be a positive experience for their toddlers, but leaks, accidents, and switching from training pants to diapers overnight can feel like setbacks. This is why we want to empower our little ones to overcome these obstacles to achieve and celebrate potty training success.

Training pants support the diaper-to-underwear transition for toddlers and their families as they have a more underwear-like look and feel while still helping to keep messes off clothing, bedding and other surfaces no matter where accidents happen: at home, on-the-go or overnight.

Check out these super awesome underwear training tips from Dr. Tanya Altmann:

Underwear Training Tips from Dr. Tanya Altmann:

Dr. Tanya is a UCLA-trained pediatrician and mom of three. She is a best-selling author, network television parenting expert, and entertainment industry and child product industry consultant. As a health expert for numerous news programs and talk shows, including Today (NBC) and KTLA 5 Morning News (CW Los Angeles), Dr. Tanya has discussed breaking medical news stories and controversial parenting issues.

After 14 years in a busy group pediatric practice, Dr. Tanya founded Calabasas Pediatrics, a concierge practice providing personalized pediatric health care with an emphasis on nutrition, a healthy lifestyle and preventive medicine. She loves being able to spend more time with her patients and be available to them after hours and on weekends, when they often need her most.

Excite with Underwear: Get your child excited about wearing underwear as it’s an
important milestone to look forward to for both you and your child.

The journey to underwear training is two-fold: 1) getting your child to use the potty and 2) getting them
used to no longer wearing diapers. Because of this new journey, I like to call “potty training” – underwear training. Make it fun and set aside a moment to mark the occasion by marking the transition to training underwear. For example, put Pampers Easy Ups in your child’s dresser drawer, as if it is actually underwear, to help them get excited and make the connection that they’re graduating from diapers.

Patience is Key. Underwear training is a developmental milestone and should never be rushed with any child. It is usually somewhere between two to three years of age when a toddler is ready to begin underwear training.

Look for Signs: You will typically start to notice cues that your child is ready for underwear training. Some of these signs include signaling to you before they go in their diaper, interest in what goes on in the bathroom, the desire to start using the potty, the ability to pull underwear off and on by themselves and the desire to wear big kid underwear.

Know the Underwear ABCs: With underwear training, children need to be able to know a few things like: A). when they need to go, B). how to get to the bathroom, and C). how to get themselves onto the potty. These are essential in order to make underwear training a true victory. Sometimes your child will learn a bit later and that is okay. Give them the time they need to make it successful and easy for both of you.

Encourage the Use of Training Pants: Training pants are a fantastic way to ease into the underwear training process and the best next step after diapers in order to get children used to the feeling of underwear. I recommend Pampers Easy Ups as they have the fit and feel of underwear while still giving children amazing leak protection for day and night. Training pants also help reinforce the concept of pulling underwear on and off,
which will make underwear training that much easier.

Lead by Example: As a parent, you are the best role model for your child and the best example to show them how to go. I encourage parents to allow children into the bathroom with them so they can see how easy it is. It is also important for parents to teach their children to wash their hands immediately after so that good hygiene practices are instilled from an early age.

Be Positive and Make it Fun: Always remember that positive reinforcement is key with your child, and never discipline them for not going. I find that small immediate rewards are the best way to make underwear training a breeze. Create a fun little dance that you do right after they successfully go or find other creative ways to reward them, like a sticker or a hand stamp. It is important to make children feel rewarded for
accomplishing this major milestone.

    My tip is to use a reward system.

  • Pampers Pull-ups helped us throughout the potty training process when our boys were little too. It made them feel like they were big boys.

  • Oh I would have to say my tip would be to put some books by the potty, and during the day make lots of trips to the potty for a story in hopes that something might happen while you are there.
