A few days ago we started toilet training my DS who is 2 1/2 yrs old. We've had some success but also a lot of wee accidents. There are wee patches all over the carpet. Im not keen to stop as he is doing some wees and poos in the toilet and he's really enthusiastic about it all.
At the moment I have him in undies whevever we're at home but a nappy for his nap and overnight. At daycare (3 days pw) he is in a nappy in the morning & nap then undies for the afternoon. I regularly ask him if he wants the toilet, sometimes he says yes but no result only to wee on the floor 5 minutes later!
I was wondering if anyone had used the wetness liner pull ups? Are they helpful and do the kids really feel the wetness? Im just trying to save the carpet a bit but don't want to compromise his toilet training.

Most advice I received (from daycare etc) is not to use pull-ups. They are essentially a nappy and kids will treat them as such. I would stick to undies and if they accidents get too much, maybe stop and try again in a few months. Aidan TTed at 2y9m very quickly...after unsucessfully trying him at 2 and 2y4m.

The pull-ups seemed to put Amelie back - she just used them like a nappy too - she was never able to easily get them off either unlike undies, so it was a double whammy for us.

We also had a few false starts, I found that I was ending up reminding her too much and she was always having accidents - it was more like we were catching the wee etc, rather than her being aware of it herself IYKWIM, so it ended up being more difficult than when she was just in nappies. When she was ready to do it herself apart from minimal reminders when she was super busy, it was really easy. I think she was just over 3 when she was fully ready, and has just started going dry overnight when she was almost 4.

We tried them and they were not a hit, going straight to undies was a much bigger success. As for daycare they just jumped in full swin with undies even for nap time and she was fine.

Actually the only time she ever got a rash was from using the pull ups.

I wouldn't recommend pull-ups. The kids treat them like nappies as they feel the same and the daycare my kids used to go to has gone as far as to ban them at daycare because they don't help blink.gif

What i would recommend though is some cloth training undies smile.gif

You can pick them up really cheaply at woolies, best&less etc. (the best and less ones are best described as bright terry toweling and i found them cheapest and easiest to use, bought Flynny's last week biggrin.gif )

They are cotton like undies but have a few extra layers in the crotch to soak up accidents wink.gif As they feel like undies and stay wet without splashing the carpet or their clothes too much they soon pick up on it.

In the summer go bare as much as you can stand and that works too.

It's my summer job for Flynny to toilet train him here wub.gif Once the trainer undies have done their job he can go shopping for some groovy proper undies as a reward

Same advice here - when in underpants Annabelle now doesn't have any accidents but if she has a nappy on (like last week because of a gastro bug :/) she doesn't bother going to the toilet.

We have some cloth training pants and some happy heinez ones that are waterproof for when we are out (mainly for number 2s which is a work in progress). We have a potty in the car and a liner for the car seat - this is our third go at it though, she seems to have regressions where she refuses to go to the toilet - we have worked out that constant reminders seem to make it worse so we just pay attention to the time and if it has been too long (1.5 hrs or more) then try and prompt her.
