“How to Potty Train” Part 4: Potty Training Without Pull-Ups

Back again talking about the potty today as part of my “How to Potty Train” series. When it comes to potty training children, one thing you might never hear about is what I like to call “stage 2” of potty training: training your toddler off pull-ups at nap time and during the night. The truth is, your child may be totally toilet-trained during the day, but dependent on pull-ups when she’s sleeping. I’ve had a varied experience with my four children that I’ve potty trained so far: one of my boys was in a pull-up for a long time, but my third was out of it in a week.
Pin for later!
Potty Training with Pull-Ups
Here are some tips that helped me out:
- Line bed with waterproof mat
- Keep a set or two of spare PJ’s and underwear nearby
- Schedule a trip to the potty late at night and early in the morning
