Potty training is in full swing in our house. I think what they forget to tell you (or maybe “they” do and I just didn’t read the book) is that it is training for the parents too. You have to remember to ask your child if they need to use the potty. You have to be ready to drop everything and take your little one to the potty when they “feel it.” I have to say that Monkey Girl and her parents are really starting to get the hang of it!
One of the big incentives for Monkey Girl was when we got her pull-ups so that she could “do it herself.” We initially tried a store brand of disposable pull-ups and they gave her a horrible rash! I was excited when we received two Charlie Banana trainers (also sold as swim diapers). We got Monkey Girl the size large which fits 18-36 months and 21-27 lbs. Monkey Girl is a petite 27 month old, just now weighing in at 25 lbs. This diaper fits pretty good, but I would say that they run a little on the bigger side.
The inside is lined with so soft organic cotton. These fit much like regular underwear but with a really thin yet absorbent soaker pad to catch those little accidents. And the outer waterproof liner can help some to keep the accidents in. We did learn that if she really misjudges and has a big pee, the trainer is not going to keep it all in. But, trainers aren’t supposed to!
We are really impressed with these trainers!
