Potty Training and Underwear

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

My daughter has pretty much mastered the potty and goes all on her own but she forgets to pull down her panties or shorts when they are on. We have been naked for the past 4 days and I would really like her to start wearing clothes. Has anyone else had this problem and what have they done to help them remember?

With me, I loved my briefs and shorts, that I always pulled up my briefs and shorts without help. I peed in my shorts, until I pulled on leg of my shorts too one side, which I peed less in my shorts, though I still peed in my briefs underneath, until then that I tried too open the front of my briefs, that I less seriously peed in my briefs. I am profoundly mentally retarded in judgement and socialization. The same for her. She must love her pants and shorts, that she always pulls up her panties and shorts, without help. She pees in her shorts, till she pulls one leg of her shorts too one side, which she pees less in her shorts, though she pees in her panties underneath, till then that she tries too pull the bottom and back of her panties to one side, that she less seriously pees in her panties.

My little girl is 23 Months and almost mastered potty training we have issues with panties as she only has a small bum so she wears pull ups which are great I have many neices and nephews and have seen the same thing with them I know my sister uses a lot of persistance with them wearing there underwear and eventually they come around and keep them on. Oh the joys of potty training

I still have to pull them down for my son as well sometimes. If he is just in his underwear, he seems to do fine, but when in his pants or shorts as well, he seems to have trouble. He does remember to pull them down, but he just can't seem to get them all the way off to climb on the potty.

My son doesn't know how to pull his own underwear down yet. I still do that for him. He will sometimes try to climb on the potty fully clothed...hehe
