  • It worked best for my dd! She was doing great at 23 months but dh started putting pull ups on her and that has seriously set her back!!!

  • I'm not sure, but a friend of mine did that and it worked for her. What works for someone else may or may not work for you. Good luck!

  • It did for my son. They can actually feel and see what is going on when naked and they don't have the option to go in their pants.

  • Sorry, but having to deal with pee and poop messes is not worth it to me. I would just use pull-ups and let my child take her time. I'm not sure why we as parents are in such a rush when it comes to potty-training our children. Unless you are attempting to get your child is a preschool that requires your child to be potty-trained, what's the rush? Let your children enjoy being children.

  • My daughter was trained that way but not by my choice. She decided to take all of her clothes off every time she wanted to try and use the the potty. Once we started to really train her she was naked from the waist down and it only took a few times of her peeing down her leg to start using the potty. The only problem with this type of training, at least in my experience, is when you go to put undies on them it's like starting all over again. It took days before she would stop peeing in her undies and finally use the potty again. If I had to do it again I would just go straight to undies, no pullups and no naked training.
