Potty training was one of the more stressful times in my mothering experience thus far. Thankfully, I have successfully potty trained 3 children, and anything that makes the job easier is definitely a winner.
If you wait till your child is old enough, the time necessary for training is shorter and easier. In my experience, somewhere between 2 and 3 1/2 worked well with my children. Since I wanted to protect our carpeting while they were practicing staying dry and learning to go on the potty, I would put down a large shower curtain on the floor with some of their toys, a drink and the potty, all in front of the tv with their favorite shows. Every few minutes we would take a break to sit for awhile and see if they could go. It usually took less than a week for each to consistently go on the potty and stay dry during the day.
At night though, they were reluctant to put on a diaper after wearing underwear all day. To keep their sheets dry, our solution was PULL-UPS® Night*Time Glow in the Dark. Since they are so much thinner than a diaper, and easier to pull up and down, kids aren’t as reluctant to use them for night time, and since they even glow in the dark, they are so appealing for little ones.
