    Default Best panties for potty training

    We are getting ready to potty train our 2 1/2 year old daughter and I notice that some panties have thicker fabric or other features. Any suggestions on what to look for or good brands to try? TIA

    I bought what ever the boys wanted. We did mostly naked potty training and commando for a while after that but we bought character undies what ever they were into. I never felt bad if I tossed a pair if they had a accident. Expensive undies I couldnt do for potty training.

    My kids really liked the feel of the Gerber ones with thicker middles (looks like they're called training pants). In fact, my youngest (who's 5.5) still only wears those despite the cute ones I bought him. They are just really comfortable.

    We used the HA trainers - but honestly I suggest not using special undies. The thicker ones don't let the child know they are wet imo which just delays the process. I suggest naked potty training or just using regular undies.

    We went down to Target and picked out a bunch of the themed undies -- disney characters, bubble guppies, etc. They were cheap, came 10 to a pack, and I didn't hesitate to throw a pair away when there was a poo accident in them. They weren't the most comfortable undies, but they did the trick during training. After training was over, I switched to HA undies which are more expensive and very comfortable.

    The only thing that makes a thicker pair, like the Gerber or Hanna trainers, "better" is cleanup for pee accidents because it soaks up more.

    Both of my kids, ESP. DD1 peed right through Hanna and Gerber training pants so we got more use of those as panties once they were trained. With DD2 she trained at daycare and essentially went from disposable diapers to regular "princess" panties in a week. She was night trained very easily as well (compared to DD1 who was almost 5/1/2).

    We used and loved the Hanna training unders. They are super warm and cozy and snug around the legs to reduce leaks.

    I have loved the HA trainers...but my 4 y/o ds is still wearing them, so I would say we use them just as regular undies after they have learned (he PT around age 2). but they are starting to fall apart (after 3 children) and i'm trying to decide what to buy dc4. she may be our last, so kinda hate to pay HA prices but they are so nice. glad to hear some other recs!
