Training In Progress

Undergarments are a very common Valentine’s Day gift for the love of your life.  I just hadn’t expected to be purchasing tighty whities for my two year old.  Before you get your panties in a bunch, I can explain.

I’ve been dreading the whole potty training process until I spotted these!

Although they better not encourage my son to make any ads like David Beckham did for H&M.

At home, I googled the label and learned that these training pants are available on amazon at Empress Arts “Training in Progress” Childrens Training Underwear Large for the same $5.95 price I paid at a boutique (plus shipping)

I did the legwork on finding these, so in exchange any potty training tips you have would be most appreciated.
Lainie Gutterman - Before giving birth to her son in 2009 and becoming a stay-at-home mom, Lainie was a founding partner of a Public Relations firm. Lainie describes herself as "a natural born publicist who is constantly spreading the word about new products, activities and events." When Lainie is not chasing after her son or they are not watching Nick Jr or reading together, she scrapbooks and writes posts for her blog, "Me, Myself & Baby I" at Lainie and her family live in New York City, where she sacrifices living space (but not style) to be in the center of it all in "the city that never sleeps." (Fortunately, her toddler is a sound sleeper who doesn't rise until after 9am, on most days.)


  1. I looked the panties up on amazon but cannot figure out whether the underwear come in a pack or just one at a time. I was also wondering what makes them better than other underwear that is sold.

  2. three tips from my experience:
    – lock you and your toddler in a room together during the first few days.
    – give them lots to drink (for my little girl, it was chocolate milk as an incentive).
    – watch and wait.
    the biggest thing i had to learn (and keep learning) is that progress in these kind of things is hardly linear… good luck!

  3. My only piece of potty-training advice is…make sure your child is ready. It is the difference between the process taking 3 days and 6 months!!! LOVE the underwear 🙂
