Pull Ups®?

Pull Ups®

Pull-Ups, and where they fit into potty training.

Many parents believe Pull-Ups or Easy Ups are a crucial step of the training process. Just because your child now pulls up a diaper as opposed to you strapping it on doesn’t mean they are potty trained. It’s made of the same material and little Timmy is still going to do his business in them. Children are smart, they know this isn’t underwear. Pull Ups play an important role at night. You may have done an amazing job training your child, but learning to hold it all night might not be in their power. For that, I recommend Pull Ups or other night time disposable training pants. But this is important, make sure to call them “night time underwear.” This sends your toddler the message that diapers are over and this is just thicker underwear for night. Something we do recommend are real fabric training pants. These are basically cushioned underwear. It gives your child just a small amount of absorbency for them to say “mom, I have to make now!” This is a great transition step from diapers to underwear. Once you pick a weekend and decide to potty train, don’t go backwards. It’s a bad signal to try underwear for a few days and then go back to diapers. It tells the child this is an option. Make sure your toddler is ready for the big step, and then jump into underwear. Pull Ups® is a trademark of Kimberly-Clark Worldwide, Inc.
