I've heard that switching a child to regular underwear helps with the potty training process but it's also a messy route to go. So I was wondering what your experiences with this have been....pros and cons of it. The reason why is that my daughter, 22 months, has started potty training.....right now we will sit on the potty and "read" a book but nothing else and we prefer pull ups to regular diapers. Throws a fit if we put her in a regular diaper instead of a pull up. We are using huggies with cool alert right now, thinking maybe it will help her if she feels uncomfortable.....nope. We are not trying to rush things along but yesterday was the first day I realized that my daughter is interested in moving up. She threw a huge fit because grandma wouldn't buy her a package of underwear.....and it was plain colored underwear nothing with Dora or the disney princesses on it.
I know I start work again in a few weeks so she will be in the daycare full time then so pull ups are a must there but I figured when I'm home I could use the regular underwear. Any experiances/tips/warnings/etc. are greatly appreciated as we start this new adventure with our daughter!
