in your experience which were smaller? Pampers Easy Ups or Huggies Pull Up's?
My DD is 18 months old, we are not actively toilet training but I always sit her on the toilet before bath time and whenever she says she needs to "wee wee" I am sick of putting her diaper on and off so I was looking at using pull ups for when we are home so its easier to pull them up and down.
My DD is skinny we are still in size 3 diapers, the smallest easy ups are size 4 and huggies pull ups are size 2T-3T
what would you recommend? I can't use size 4 pampers cruisers as they leak because the leg and waist are too big.
ETA- she is 20lbs and wears size 12 months pants (to get a waist size idea)
I'll be honest, I did the Pampers pull-ups and HATED them. They leaked on my son, so we used the Huggies brand and it worked much better with him, but then he was perfect in height and weight in order to wear them
I would try the Huggies brand first. Just get a small bag of them first. They fit pretty snug in my opinion. And they are velcro on the side, so you can probably adjust it a little bit, not a lot, but try to see if it will work for you.
our son is 2 and daughter is 1. she is in size 2T-3T girls huggies pull ups. he is in size 2T-3T boys pull ups, same brand. they always wore huggies. we tried luvs as babies but they suck, same with pampers so huggies it is
i bought a small pack of each to see which fits her best!! I am not hopeful though as they seem quite big... her size 3 pampers tabs almost touch!
Will KUP! she LOVES to sit on the toilet and read her books (just like her daddy ) so far she hasn't "done" anything but I am just trying to get her used to it before we start training! which I think will be around August/September, I am having another baby at the end of June so I don't want to do anything now (because honestly I think she is too young, and I don't want regression issues)
Yep, usually starting this early can lead to regression issues. The typical potty training ages are between 2-3 years of age, so you still have some time. I started Caleb at 26 months - January 1 to be exact of 2009. He was fully pee trained in a 6 months (meaning no accidents), poop trained after 9 months, and fully potty trained by 10 months. I wanted him mostly potty trained by the time my daughter was born that year (July), and he was for the most part trained (pee), so I was happy with that.
I am having the same problem, my daughter is 21 months and yesterday asked to go on the potty, we haven't even been working on it, just have it in the bathroom. And her first attempt she went #2, I was shocked! She's gone #1 a few times today. But she is tiny, like 21lbs, only in the 5th percentile and the huggies pull ups I bought are big on her. Would love to know if anyone finds some that run smaller. Thanks so much, and good luck to all of you
I will tell you I tried Pampers on Rachel and she peed straight through. The huggies do run big in the regular ones. Try their Nighttime ones. They run a little smaller so they may work for you. Good Luck.
If It were me I would just get some thick trainers. You can also get cloth trainers that have a waterproof layer in them. Pull ups (in my opinion) are just glorified diapers. We started my son at 17.5 months (because we decided we were ready to commit the time and effort, he showed none of the "signs") and he did great.
If you can't find underwear or trainers small enough there is a really easy tutorial to fix larger ones to fit better on your LO. Or you can get them pretty reasonably priced from WAHMs on etsy and hyenacart.
We went naked at home until he got the hang of things and then went straight to underwear, with cloth waterproof trainers while out at "important" places (friend's homes and church) until we felt more comfortable. When he was 20 months old we had his little brother, and he had some accidents a bit for a few days but after that, he was fine. No real "regression" as far as I could see. Just went about it like we normally would.
When it comes to potty training, its time to easy your “baby” into a very huge change. Sometimes you can be a little bit abrupt, and sometimes its better to take

brilliant tips to make trainspotting so much easier. Yes!! You’ve read correctly: much more EASIER! Its time to say “good-bye” to those diapers and “hello” to
the “potty”. Also, by potty training your child you will be saving a lot of money and lets be honest… its unhygienic! So, discover these 19 brilliant DIY potty
1. Start Potty Training at the Right Time The first question that most people ask when considering when to start potty training is: “is my child going to give me signals that they are ready?” While there are recommendations on the correct age to start potty training and plenty of resources to go for more information, the best place to start might be a potty training readiness quiz. This will let you exactly where things stand and provide a few reasons to hold off on potty training. 2. Start Potty Training the Right Way First, you should determine the type of trainer you have (take this potty training personalities quiz.) This is based on their level of activity, the predictability of bodily functions, typical reactions, and other factors. This will help you determine how to introduce training pants. You also need to do lists, shopping lists, and basic information on potty training to get you started successfully. 3. Use Potty Training Incentives, Games, and Tools Many experienced moms will tell you about implementing many reward ideas such as certificates, sticker charts, or prizes. You may also want to use the technology that’s available to us these days in the form of apps and games. These Potty Training Tips and Tricks are a great start. 4. Help Your Child Know When to Go An important part of your child gaining independence and becoming successful in potty training is learning to recognize the urge to go. Again, you are likely to be more successful with this if you know your child and tips for each type of trainer (based on what you learned in step 1). Use this potty training personalities quiz. 5. Accept that Potty Training for Boys Might Be Harder I believe what most people say, which is that girls are easier to potty train than boys. I feel pretty qualified to come to this conclusion since I’ve had experience with both. It’s helpful to consider what the experts say about this. For example, do you know how training pants are designed for boys? They’re different than girls’ pants. You also may have to consider using a different type of sticker chart for them. 6. Be Thankful That Potty Training for Girls May Be Easier I think that girls are easier to potty train than boys because girls seem to care more about being wet and feeling clean. Boys tend to get hyper-focused on playing and lose the sense of everything else going on around them. My daughter actually started earlier than my son and the process was easier and shorter. The experts have a lot to say about potty training girls, the difference in how girls’ training pants are designed, and how to create a fun and feminine sticker chart for them. 7. Help Ease the Transition to Big Kid Underwear There are many personalized tips available for each type of trainer – depending on the personality type of your child. To make the transition easier, you have to consider your child’s confidence level, how often he/she stays dry, his ability to adapt to routines, and willingness to go to the bathroom. This personalities quiz was very helpful. 8. Be Prepared for Potty Training Away from Home
