I took very different approaches to potty training with each my older children, and I expect to take an even different path when Little Guy is ready to start toilet training. My daughter was only 16 months old when we started but she was very motivated to use the potty. My son was almost twice her age at the start and didn't really see the point. Their attitude towards potty training along with my needs influenced many things including what they wore during training.
Knowing this, I was very careful about the advice I offered a reader who recently asked whether she should use disposable training pants when potty training her granddaughter. She writes:
I'm about to start potty training my 25-month-old granddaughter. I can't decide if I should start by using pull ups or move straight onto the panties.
