Okay, I was asked by one of my readers to give a rundown of what we used with the ladybug to potty train her. Please bare with me because a lot of the images are not available online (I think that the brand of training pants that we used are/were listed under a different brand name.)
Okie Dokie Training Pants from JCPenney on a deep discount (2 for .99) which look like this:
but obviously aren’t these since they say Gerber. I love that they are just like underwear that she will graduate into, instead of the absorbent diaper like situations that Pull-Ups and the like have. I also think that with these types of training pants, the ladybug connected “big girl” with them, and not, convenience that the Pull-Ups gave. We were noticing that she would have no problem with using the bathroom in the disposable training pants then she does with the terry cloth type ones.
We also started her on a potty chair by Safety 1st from Buy Buy Baby that was purchased for $9.99 (not bad if I do say so myself.)
