A mom writes in asking for potty training advice for her 2-year-old daughter. She says she had decided to start potty training her daughter and wants to know if she can use diapers, which she has leftover, versus moving to Pull-Ups, which many moms often use during the potty training phase. Would that work? Any other potty training advice for this mom?
A member of the community asks:
“Can my daughter use diapers instead of Pull-Ups?
Question: My daughter is 2 years and 4 months. I literally just decided to potty train this morning lol. She went pee two times in the potty and one accident so far… Instead of Pull-Ups for the night, can she use diapers? I still have a whole box of Pampers 360 Fits, so they are similar to Pull-Ups … Also, any tips are appreciated. Thank you.”

The community offered this mom in need a lot of great advice. Read some of their responses below.
“I personally think Pull-Ups are a waste of money. I just used underwear. There were a few accidents but mine caught on quickly.”
“While potty training my son I would put him in underwear throughout the day and diapers (they are cheaper) during nap and bedtime. I stopped using diapers during naps and once we made sure there were no accidents while sleeping I let him sleep in big boy undies. It’s really whatever you are comfortable with being the parent.”
“Pull-Ups were not around 50 years ago. All our parents managed to get potty trained without them…”
“Pull-Ups are a waste of money, use the diapers at night.”
“I am anti-pull-ups. Trained my son with big boy underwear. They need to feel they are wet or dirty. Cleaned up a couple of accidents but he trained in a few days. Put a protective cover over mattress & have spare bedding on hand.”
“I’m potty training my 4-year-old. I put underwear on her during the day and diapers at night. I used to use Pull-Ups for her during the day but she would never tell me she has to go seems how she’s in underwear during the day she tells me.”
“I would. I NEVER used Pull-Ups. I hate them. They feel no different than a diaper to the child and are a hassle to change. About to potty train my two granddaughters as soon as mom buys them training pants. You can find the ones that are the real training pants on Amazon. The ones with the thicker middle that you put plastic pants, also on Amazon, over like I used on mine and our parents used on us.”
