Potty Boot Camp Day 1 and 2 Question - Naked, Underwear, or Training Pants during Potty Training??

In "The Potty Boot Camp" program, I encourage parents to use non-padded training pants the very first day of training and to go naked during days 2-4. The question below is from a mother who didn't read the book until AFTER the first day and therefore used underwear on Day #1. Her question and my response follow:


I started first day in underwear instead of training pants/ pull ups, should I still have her be naked next few days? She has just been wearing underwear the whole time (no other clothes.)


I would go ahead and do the "naked" intervals even though you started in
underwear. UNLESS, that is, she is doing really well in underwear with
hardly any accidents. Then go ahead and stick with the panties.


The purpose behind the "non padded" training pants are that they do NOT feel like diapers to the child. "Non-padded" training pants are basically just like underwear but have a few layers of material instead of just one. These help (slightly) to catch messes compared to regular underwear. Underwear on Day #1 is actually a GOOD option as well - albeit it might mean more cleanup for Mom or Dad!
