    When to start toilet training

    Before starting the toilet training journey, it’s crucial to determine if your toddler is ready. Look for signs such as staying dry for longer periods, showing interest in the potty, or expressing discomfort with dirty nappies. Once you’re confident, it’s time to move on to the next step.

    How to toilet train with training pants

    Begin by introducing the concept of using the potty to your child. You can show them their new training pants and explain that they are “big kid” underwear, which is also known as training undies. Encourage them to wear them and explain how they work.

    Create a toilet training routine

    Creating a consistent toilet training routine is essential. Have your child sit on the potty at regular intervals, such as after meals or before bedtime. Little Aussie Monster’s training pants make this process easier, as they can be pulled up and down by your toddler (or unclipped), allowing them to take the initiative.

    Training pants for toddlers: celebrate small wins

    Every time your child successfully uses the potty, celebrate their achievement. Praise and positive reinforcement can go a long way in motivating them to continue with the process. Consider a small reward system, like stickers or a special treat, to make it even more exciting.

    Potty training pants: be patient

    Toilet training can be a bumpy road with occasional setbacks…. And let’s face, a few messy incidents! It’s crucial to remain patient and understanding. Accidents happen, and it’s all part of the learning process. Little Aussie Monster’s training pants are designed to contain small leaks while still allowing your child to feel wet, which can help them learn faster.

    Training pants toddler: encourage independence

    As your child becomes more comfortable with the potty, encourage them to be more independent. Let them pull down and pull up their training pants or unclip them on their own. This promotes a sense of ownership over the process.

    Toilet training undies: nighttime training

    Nighttime training can take a bit longer, as it’s more challenging to control when your child is asleep. Many parents stick with cloth nappies during the evening for a while before they are confident their little one is ready. Little Aussie Monster offers training pants that are absorbent enough overnight to help with nighttime training. Still, it’s essential to have a consistent bedtime routine during this period.

    Transition to training undies and toddler training pants

    Once your child consistently uses the potty during the day and stays dry at night, it’s time to transition to regular underwear, also known as toilet training pants. Little Aussie Monster’s training pants have prepared your child for this moment, as they are designed to feel like underwear but provide extra protection.

    So, are you ready?

    Toilet training can be a significant milestone in your toddler’s life, and at Little Aussie Monster, we’re here to help you make it as easy and eco-friendly as possible.
