We have a 4.5 year old and a 3 year old (almost). They are both "potty trained" - mostly. You see, Manasseh has been in underwear during the day for over 2 years, but cannot quite get the sleep time problem under control. Cassius has been in underwear during the day since August 1 (my birthday present to myself), but also can't get the sleep pottying figured out. We have been through a number of solutions. The stores offer quite a selection of options.
|Pull - Ups|
We tried waking Manasseh in the night before we went to bed so he could use the restroom. This worked sometimes. We tried letting them sleep in their "day time underwear" in hopes that wetting would wake them and they would learn to get up before that happened. We tried cloth training pants, but did not have enough to get through more than 1 or 2 nights.
Cassius loves the designs on Pull-Ups training pants. Both of the boys love the wetness indicators. Each morning when they wake up, they check to see if they have wet. I love that they can see their success immediately, and that because Pull-Ups wick the wetness away from the body, they usually sleep through the night.
Because Manasseh is a slim guy, both boys can wear the same size training pants. He loves the "Mater" prints, Cash loves "Lightening McQueen" because he is red. As we are teaching our boys to be independent, it is helpful to have training pants that they can put on themselves. We found that it is easiest to keep them on a shelf in their bedroom so that as they dress for nap and bed, they can grab the print of their choice to snuggle up in.
We love that we can buy them at Walmart with their "rollback" prices (online and in the store). We bought just over 100 training pants for about $40. That is almost 2 months worth of sleep times with 2 boys!
While it is not the "greenest" solution for our family, Pull-Ups seem to work best for our boy's at this point. We gladly continue to use them as our boys increase in independence and ability!
