WHY I SHOULD USE TRAINING PANT?
The answer is simple -As parents, most of us are over committed and our lives are extremely busy, using training pant will save you from doing extra cleaning due to frequent accidents especially during early phase of potty training. It is also easier for your child to learn the natural consequence of potty accidents with washable training pants than it is with disposable diaper/pull up.
Not to say that your child will not learn the natural consequences of potty accidents with disposables – he will , but the learning impact is significantly greater with training pants and more specifically with cloth training pants.
With cloth training pants, the absorbent center panel will contain some of the accident and thus the training pants will stay wet and thus your child will learn that potty accidents lead to feeling wet and feeling wet is not a comfortable feeling.
If you child happens to have a full blown accident, the cloth training pants will not contain the whole accident, so chance are your child will feel a lot more of the wetness.
Yes, this is a lot more work and effort for you the parent, however, your child will very quickly learn the natural consequences of potty accidents and if he is like most people, he will not like the feeling of being wet – which then should motivate and lead him to use the potty or the toilet.
HOW DOES TRAINING PANT WORK?
Kiddyjoy’s training pants are used as an aid when potty training. The pant is worn as regular underwear. The training pant has extra absorbing layers of cotton that helps absorb urine and creates a wet feeling for the child. This will then help the child to associate the feeling of needing to go to the toilet with the wet feeling of the training pant.
Although the training pant has a protective layer of PUL to prevent instant leakage when the pant gets wet it is not leakproof. The training pant is not a diaper and should not be treated as one. The pant is merely an aid in potty training. The training pant will leak eventually when it reach its max capacity of absorption which it’s the purpose of the pant, but it gives you the chance and time of bringing your child to the potty without getting pee all over the floor or the couch. As soon as the child wets the training pant, take it off and sit the child down on the potty or toilet. In time there might be only a few drops in the pant and the rest in the toilet and before you know it, the child will choose the toilet before the pant. If the child pees in the pant and continues wearing it, it will leak. By being consistent in your potty training it will help the child to associate pee with the toilet or potty. Ask the child on a regular basis if it need to sit on the potty.
It is important to keep a relaxed approach towards the child when it comes to potty training since many children tend to be a bit skeptical towards the toilet training. Find your own routine that works for you and your child and try making it a safe and enjoyable task for the child.
WHAT SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE
The sizes are set to the weight of the child. It’s important that the training pant fits the child comfortably. Our sizes start at 10 kg and the largest one fits children of approximately 20 kg. Make sure the fit is snug.
CAN I USE TRAINING PANT AS DIAPER?
The training pant is not a diaper and should not be used as one. Instead use the training pant as an aid in potty training during the daytime when the child is ready for potty training. Since the pant is function to catch accidents it will leak with larger amounts of liquid so it is not recommended to use the training pant during night for heavy wetter. However, if your child is potty trained during daytime wearing it during night will help in potty training.
HOW MANY PAIRS DO I NEED?
How many pants you’ll need varies from child to child. Some children will learn quicker than the next child to use the potty instead of wetting the pant. Some children pees quite frequently and some only a few times a day. It also depends on how active of a roll you as the parent take in the training process. By asking the child every now and then if it need the potty and placing the child on the it, the chances are that more and more urine actually hits the toilet or the potty instead of ending up in the training pant. The quicker the process the fewer pants needed.
Also if you have a washing machine at home it’s easier and quicker to wash the used ones compared to using a public laundry room or laundromat.
We normally recommend that you get 3-5 training pants. Do consider raining season too.
WHEN I SHOULD START POTTY TRAINING?
It is highly individual from child to child. Some parents will start the potty training from 2 years old and some prefer to wait and do it later. You know your child and what is best for it. Our pants can be used from the weight of around 10 kg.
CAN I USE WASHING MACHINE TO WASH TRAINING PANTS?
Yes, you can. Rinse the training pant with tap water, make sure it’s free from any pee or poo. Place in a washing pail and soak with detergent until ready to wash. Place in washing machine and select cold or warm wash to a maximum of 40C/ 104F. Recommended to use eco-friendly detergent, but any detergent is fine. Only half of the recommended amount is needed. Do not use fabric softener or bleach. Hang to dry or place in the dryer, tumble dry on low. Do not iron.
HOW DO I GET RID OF STAINS FROM TRAINING PANTS?
Kiddyjoy’s training pant do not usually stain. For stains, we recommend sun-beaching with a bit of lemon juice – mix 1/4 cup lemon juice with 2 cups water in a squirt bottle. Shake to combine, and spray the solution onto the worst stains as you lay clean but stained training pant out in the sun. Leave them for 2-3 hours and afterwards wash the training pants with an extra rinse. Stain usually disappear upon many washing cycles.

Kiddyjoy Training Pants reinforce and build potty training skills, while boosting your child’s confidence besides physiologically teach your children to recognize wetness & train the muscle to control peeing.

CAN I USE KIDDYJOY TRAINING PANT FOR SWIMMING?
While training pant are meant to absorb pee & poo upon accidents, swim diapers are especially designed to absorb solid poop. By using swim diapers, you’re letting everything other than solid poop pass through, which means it won’t hold your child’s urine. On the other side, using Kiddyjoy training pant as a swim diaper is not recommended as it is designed for potty training and does not have an official certification of safety to bringing it to pool. It may absorb a lot of liquids and make it heavier jeopardizing the safety of your child.
