  • In my experience with my son (who is just beginning potty training, but doing really well!), these are no better or different than regular Pull Ups. And honestly, Pull Ups brand are no better or different than the off brand! Glenn has been doing great with the off brand training pants, and that surprised me because he peed through most brands of diapers.

  • We're potty training right now. My son isnt even using pull-ups. they're just no different to me then diapers. Corbin is using big boy undies and has been doing great all day

  • actually I tried out easy ups and I hate that they dont have the easy side openings. Normally my son wears cloth trainers and underpants but pulls ups are worn overnight or for long outings

  • They didn't do anything for my son. They were just like the regular pull-ups. We just bought the cheap store brand and they worked just as well.

  • The cool alert made no difference to my oldest. My second barely bothered with pull-ups at all.

  • I won't use them; with my older two using regular underpants made them uncomfortable enough to train quickly. My 2.5 yo is almost ready to start potty training, I'll use regular underpants on him as well.

  • I tried them with my first DD and they didn't faze her. She didn't care if she peed in it. Then as much as I hate pullups period, I bought some for my son (a local store had them on Black Friday for $6/pack) - same story - the supposed "cold" didn't faze him. I did buy 2 more packages (same store had them for $6 for a while - they had a huge overstock!) just because they had Cars on them and he liked wearing them over his undies for bed. I actually still have a package left and can't give the darn things away, nobody wants them.
