Today I’m sharing with you my Top 8 Toddler Pants (or ‘briefs’ as they are officially called), as today was the day Tyler chose his own pants. Potty training – here we come!
Here’s what I have selected, and Tyler actually chose the first two:
– Vehicle Pants 5-pack – Tesco – £3.50
– Avengers Pants 5-pack – Primark – £3.50
– Fire Engine Pants 5-pack – M&S – £6
– Stars & Stripes Pants 5-pack – Asda – £3
– Mini Superheroes Pants 5-pack – BHS – £4.50 (on offer)
– George (Peppa Pig) Pants 5-pack – Boots – £8
– Emergency Vehicle Pants 5-pack – Matalan – £4
– Thomas Pants 5-pack – Mothercare – £7
There is a lot of choice on the high street and all at different price points, so it depends what brand you go for and if you go for characters.
I bought age 2-3 for Tyler which fits him perfectly. He was so excited to buy the pants in Primark, I think he understands that he’s being a big boy. He took it to the till, and then when it was bagged, he carried it all the way home – he would not let go of this bag! He even kept checking inside the bag every now and then to see if the pants were still inside!
So I guess this was our first day of potty training. Nappy came off at 3pm and he wore the blue ambulance pants first. No trousers – just pants and a t-shirt. Then he pooed in the pants. Great.
The next pants lasted an hour and a half, till he peed in his bedroom. He went ‘Oh dear!’ I told him not to worry, next time he needs to pee, we got to the potty or the loo. But he wasn’t listening and was running around the flat laughing like crazy.
Another hour and a half later he peed in his pants again, but didn’t say anything. I wouldn’t have known unless I saw the puddle on the floor. He seemed happy to stand around in wet pants. I was like, ‘Tyler, are your pants wet? Don’t you want to take the wet pants off?’. Nothing. Oh well – Day 2 tomorrow!
EDIT: We gave up with the potty training as I felt he wasn’t ready, and waited 2 more months until the end of August/beginning of Sept when he was 3 years and 4 months – post here: Potty Trained in 2 weeks
