Check out some of the most common questions we get about Pull-Ups®, potty training and more.

Potty Training

All Pull-Ups® products are disposable training pants designed to look and fit more like underwear. They are intended specifically for potty training because they also encourage your child's independence in easily sliding pants up and down. In addition to a potty training product, Pull-Ups® training pants are a symbol to your child that it's time to potty like a Big Kid®. Going back and forth from diapers to training pants can lead to confusion, so consistently putting them in Pull-Ups® will help make their potty training journey fun, fast and easy.

As much as potty training is an exciting adventure to begin, it can also be intimidating for both toddler and parents. Pulls-Ups® training pants help provide a smoother transition between diapers and underwear, encouraging parents and children to work together on this significant developmental milestone. Pull-Ups® training pants also have unique benefits that diapers don't offer, such as a more underwear-like feel, easy sliding up and down to encourage independence and refastenable sides for easier changes with an active toddler.

There is no one-size-fits-all method to potty train! All children are unique, and their journeys will be too. So do what works best for your family and your child’s personality, strengths and challenges. We will do our best to provide you helpful tips and tricks along the way. Check out our Potty Training Resources to get started.

You may have heard that potty training should start at age 2 – this is a huge myth! The fact is that not every child is ready by then. There is a lot of physical and mental development that goes into potty training readiness, and those developmental signs will happen at different times for different children. Check out our When to Start Potty Training resource page to learn more.

Though you do hear some success stories of doing an intensive few-days boot-camp training, most children take longer. How long varies by child and can range from weeks to months and take multiple tries.
