Pull-Ups® Frequently Asked Questions

General Pull-Ups® Brand Questions:

What are Pull-Ups® Training Pants? Aren’t they the same as diapers?

Pull-Ups® Training Pants are disposable training pants designed to look and fit more like underwear while working with your child’s potty training learning styles. Pull-Ups® training pants are designed to potty train by giving the child the independence to slide his pants on and off. But they are more than a training pant; they’re also a symbol to your child that it’s time to potty like a big kid. Going back and forth from diapers to training pants can lead to confusion and consistently putting them in Pull-Ups® will help make his potty training journey a more successful one.

My toddler is fully potty trained in the day, but not at night. What to do?

If your child is a 4 or older, you may want to speak with your pediatrician and visit Pull-Ups.com for more information on nighttime wetting or bedwetting.  

What can I do to help my child with bedwetting?

The best thing you can do for your child is to make them feel comfortable. Let them know you are not upset or disappointed, and consider products like Pull-Ups® Night*Time Training Pants and GoodNites® Youth Pants, which can help ease the stress of bedwetting.

Pull-Ups® Overall Program

Why is Pull-Ups® Training Pants creating a new approach to potty training?

Pull-Ups® Training Pants has always noted that all kids train differently, and we are sharing why for the very first time in the brand’s history – because of their individual and unique personalities! This whole new way to train brings your child into the process as a true partner, tailored to his or her unique personality. The system focuses on how they learn, while using training pants designed specifically to help teach potty training skills. Visit Pull-Ups® Potty Partnership for more information.  

How do I know if my child is ready to start potty training?

Potty training readiness varies for every family and child. There are behaviors and readiness signs that children may start to show around age two, like pulling at a wet diaper, hiding to pee or poop and staying dry throughout naps and nighttime. Take the Pull-Ups® Potty Training Readiness Quiz at Pull-Ups.com to help determine how interested your child is and when to get started. 

Can I use diapers  during the Potty Training Partnership?

While you may be tempted to use diapers while potty training because they’re more familiar to you, training pants help your toddler learn valuable skills like sliding pants on and off to use the toilet. Pull-Ups® Training Pants reinforce and build potty training skills, while boosting your child’s confidence. Visit Pull-Ups.com for more tips on potty training. 

How many steps are there in the partnership? 

Potty Training is not a linear process. The lesson plans on Pull-Ups.com are designed with several chapters that will encourage engagement throughout the potty training partnership journey, and will involve both parent and child. The chapters cover: 

Cool & Learn

What is the difference between Pull-Ups® Learning Designs® Training Pants and Pull-Ups® Cool & Learn® Training Pants?

Because no two kids train alike, Pull-Ups® Training Pants Brand offers training pant options. Pull-Ups® Learning Designs® Training Pants have designs that fade when wet, to help kids learn to stay dry. Pull-Ups® Cool & Learn® Training Pants feel cool within seconds of becoming wet to help parents talk to their kids about potty training and teach their kids when they need to use the potty.

How cool do the Cool & Learn® Training Pants get?

The brief cool feeling of Pull-Ups® Cool & Learn® Training Pants is similar to the change you feel when touching water at room temperature.

What are Pull-Ups® Cool & Learn® Training Pants?

Exclusive to Pull-Ups®, Cool & Learn® Training Pants are an innovative potty training pant that gets cool on the inside within seconds of becoming wet. This cool feeling is an additional aid to help parents talk to their kids about potting training and teach their kids when they need to use the potty.

Will Pull-Ups® Cool & Learn® Training Pants encourage child to go to bathroom by themselves?

Pull-Ups® Cool & Learn® Training Pants are a training aid that will help you talk to your child about potty training, learning to stay dry by realizing when he or she went potty in the training pant. To further aid training, you can take your child to the potty and encourage them to try to use the potty so they won’t feel the brief coolness. It is important for parents to praise their children for positive behaviors – particularly when potty training.

Can parents feel coolness on the outside of the pants?

No. There is a white patch inside the pant that is in the target area that feels cool when wet, where it’s needed most for your child to feel cool. The coolness feeling is brief and can only be noticed for a few minutes after wetting the pant, and only after the first wetting.
