Underwear/trainers question
So I can't afford trainers atm but i do have quite a few pairs of underwear. Ds is really getting the potty training down but I was wondering for those few times that he does have an accident do you think it would help if I put a small amount of absorbency in the front "pocket" of his underwear? I know it won't hold a whole pee I'm just looking to slow it down long enough to get into the potty. So what do you guys think, dumb idea or may actually help?

Absolutely, it will help. I don't bother with trainers, but right now for my 16 month old, I just tuck a doubler into a pull on soaker, or waffle undies, and it catches the dribbles.

Ok I tried it didn't work. The "pocket" is to high or something. Oh well. It was worth a shot.

Gerber makes some nice, cheap, padded undies -- not waterproof, just a few extra layers to catch that little bit before they get to the potty. I bought mine on Amazon for like $7 for a pack of 3 maybe?

folded up cloth wipe in the crotch to catch an accident?
