Potty Problems

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

I'm trying to potty train my 2 1/2 year old... He's doing pretty well but we're waiting for it not to be frozen to switch to cloth undies... but my 17 month old will come in if someone is in the bathroom and say "I PEE" and sit on the little potty. Is it too early to switch him to cloth undies too?

Does anyone know of a good place to get little undies... they wear size 3 diapers. The 2T undies I bought for my older son almost fall right off.

Also FYI. Today I went to Walmart. The store brand "Faded Glory" 2T undies are half the size of the popular brands. They are even smaller than the character undies I found in 18 months. They fit my son the best. Unfortunately, there are no characters, just designs, but they fit :) (I guess I'm lucky my son's young and doesn't know about Diego, Transformers, Spiderman, etc.)

yup, gerber has 18 month training undies. they aren't too thick and work a lot like underwear. the waistband is a lot softer too, since it's not just elastic, but covered elastic. my son prefers training pants because of that. i got mine at target. BRU might have them, but they tend to sell 2T and up. you can also get them online.
go to any shopping website and search "cloth training pants" and a couple of brands will pop up. i like gerber. potty scotty is more like a pull on cloth diaper - didn't like it at all.

imse vimse makes a fabulous cloth training pant and it's pretty thick and will hold in messes very well for the younger one. BUT...they are pricey. $15-17 a pop. :o( we use them for naps and only have 3 pairs. the smallest size is for 12-18 mos.

Gerber is probably the economical option, and they work just fine.

Size 18 months undies:



I got lucky at walmart and I also saw them at Target. My son is small - he's only 15 months old. I found boys training undies (Gerber), regular character undies, boxers, and boxer briefs all in size 18 months. Although I can't find it online for boys (I found girls only).

try the cloth diaper companies. some times they carry them or you might jsut want to try cloth diapers for a while and let them clean the messes. LOL. Look on the free sites. there are several buy and seel sites on FB as well as KIJIJI. under baby stuff. I know it sounds weird but soon garage sale will start and they will be there too. |Good luck

I would give it a try, if he's interested why not!  It might just motivate the older child to want to do it.  Can't help you on the undies situation, I haven't seen them that small.  Best of luck, we're dealing with potty training issues with our 3 year old.  She just doesn't care.
