Potty Training a toddler can only be done through a few points every parent has to hit and here's how our Potty Training Pantshit that mark! 1. Your toddler MUST feel wet - This gives him a tactile experience to relate the act of peeing and helps him learn. It also provides an incentive to want to be changed, and not pee in the future (A.K.A. - Potty Train). These Potty Training Pants deliver a wet feeling! 2. Consistency - This is the job of the parents. Of course, your toddler won’t remember to go all the time at first so set an alarm and do what you have to! Consistency is key and by switching to cloth which absorbs less, these Potty Training Pants help build in accountability! 3. Don’t be afraid! In the Boy Scouts, their motto is Be Prepared. If you’re prepared then you have nothing to fear. You’ll know what can go wrong in potty training, and how to prevent it! These Potty Training Pants are waterproof and that means that even the worst of accidents become manageable with Super Undies! Our Pull-on Undies 2.0 has the following features… * Waterproof wetzone - Whew! * Stretchy side tabs - your hero can operate them himself! * Inner absorbency - but not too much or we miss the mark! * Hidden pocket - Yes! Now we can add more absorbency in these, instead of going back into a diaper.
Commonly Asked Questions
How many will I need?
It is standard to go through about 6 pairs of training pants a day while potty training. It is even better to have an extra pair of toilet training undies in the car and a pair of clothes readily available at all times. We have kits available at different levels to help you in this process.
Is this ALL I need to potty train?
Yes, there are different things you can use to help make potty training more comfortable but essentially all you need is a will to potty train, and potty training pants.
Can we just potty train naked?
Naked potty training is left to the experienced parents. You certainly can but keep in mind that you need to up your game. Be more consistent and attentive than average and you can achieve potty training naked, but if you slip, then it could mean your couch.
The Quick Version:
Turn inside out and place in a garment bag. Wash with a trusted "cloth friendly" detergent. Dry on Medium. No bleach - No fabric Softener, EVER!The Longer Version:
There are many different products and routines people use when laundering their cloth diapers. Here at Super Undies we always recommend washing our products in a garment bag. This will help prevent the inserts from getting caught around the agitator in your washing machine (if you have one) and getting torn or ripped away at the seam of the diaper.
We first recommend washing your Super Undies on either a warm or cold wash prior to use once you have made sure the product fits your child. Once the product has been used we recommend using a diaper sprayer to rid the diaper of any solids into your toilet. Do you need to purchase a diaper sprayer? No! but it makes life so much easier when cloth diapering.
If your Super Undies are soiled, use the diaper sprayer, or just shake the solids out into the toilet. To help reduce stains you will want to cold rinse the diaper and throw it into a diaper pail, or wet bag keeping it wet until you are ready to wash. You will want to wash our products every day or every other day. You will want to use your washing machine's highest water level available. You may need to pre-rinse with no detergent and then follow through with a warm wash with detergent. You can then dry our products either in the dryer or line-dry them or a combination of both.
Please note that cotton is a natural fiber and does have a tendency to fray. Fraying of any cotton product is not considered a defect but rather something that can naturally occur.
What to Avoid:
You will want to avoid using chlorine bleach on a regular basis. It will start to break down the fibers and shorten the life and absorbency of the diapers. It also may irritate your child's skin. You also want to avoid using any fabric softeners, liquid or sheets. Fabric softeners coat the absorbent layers of the diapers and will reduce absorbency.
Lengthen the Life of Your Super Undies:
To lengthen the life of your Super Undies you will want to hang dry your diapers overnight, or partially dry in the dryer and then hang dry after a cold rinse. Minimize use of bleach or any products containing bleach. You can use 1/2 c. of lemon juice to whiten or sun them in cold weather to freshen and remove stains.
Over time cloth diapers tend to get a build-up of uric acid and ammonia from urine causing a funky smell and will also cause your Super Undies to not be as absorbent as they once were. We recommend looking up "how to strip cloth diapers" and finding the recipe you prefer to strip your Super Undies of any funky smells.
Choosing a Detergent:
There are many opinions about which detergents are best for cloth diapers. We believe you should use what works for you and your family. Remember, if you feel your detergent isn't working, you can always strip your diapers and start over. Do not use any baby detergents such as Dreft, since they contain fabric softeners.
