If you landed on this blog post, your little one is probably growing into a big kid, which means they’re in-between diapers and toilet training.
Their first independent potty visit is always a milestone for parents, but it takes time and effort. And before you get there, your mini-me needs training pants.
What Are Training Pants?
Think of training pants as the step between diapers and regular cloth underwear. There are two varieties:
- Disposable training pants
- Reusable cloth pants
Disposable training pants, like our eco-friendly version, are made with layers of absorbent bamboo material. Some are even waterproof and help against leaks.
When Should I Introduce Training Pants?
All toddlers will be ready at different times. Most children will start transitioning to potty training pants between the ages of 2 and 3.
Training pants help kids feel more independent and provide additional protection against leaks and accidents. As they grow, it’s a great idea to have them wear training pants only when they’re out and about (just in case) and wear regular underwear at home.
Overall, training pants are a fantastic tool for potty training; when kids eventually transition to wearing regular underwear most of the time, it forces them to communicate they need to go potty.
The Benefits of Training Pants:
- They can be a helpful transitory product between diapers and underwear
- Training pants are often leakproof and waterproof
- They are conveniently disposable
- They give little ones a boost in confidence and independence
- Wearing them can help build communication skills
