Naked potty training

Its the only thing that really works with my children. Whats worked for you guys or have you used the naked method?
It's the only thing that's been working with my daughter too (well, not completely naked, but no pants, nothing on the bottom at all). She never lets me know when she needs to go potty but she does always let her grandma know. So when she's with my mom, she'll literally take her pants off to go potty. Not with me. She's pretty extra hyper with me too and therefore has a lot of "accidents." It's frustrating

He spent a couple of days there and stayed dry and even pooped on the potty for her but as soon as he came home he peed and pooped in his underwear. All of them always eat whatever grandma cooks too. Makes me so mad.
It was the only thing that worked for my daughter. She didn't mind wet cloth training pants or undies. I finally got frustrated and just stripped off her bottoms. After two accidents, she started making it to the potty just fine. I say, whatever works!

I was never a fan of naked. The boys would just point that weapon at something and not feel the wet that they would get from wet cotton underpants. I didn't want my girl running around naked either...she has 3 brothers, 2 of whom were way-too-old to be around a naked little girl. It just didn't feel appropriate. Mine all did fine with training pants.

My second son was my only problem-child. He was almost 4 and completely resisting every attempt, with snot-slinging tantrums and peeing/pooping on everything. I *had* to get him trained because of daycare. Finally, I ended up spanking him and telling him to just go on the potty. That worked. I certainly don't advocate spanking for pottytraining, and I don't like to spank children, but I do have to admit it worked practically instantly. He has always been a challenging child.
I've tried the naked thing and the "let him stew in his juices for a while" thing.

My son doesn't seem to care if he has pee running down his legs or a big wad in his diaper for a long time.

He's only 2 1/2 though. I'm just hoping he's thinking about it by 3.
hello.world.
Being naked (or pantsless) did help my son get potty trained. He was able to just run to the potty chair and do his business without having to pull down his pants, which he can do just fine, but it adds some time and hassle. The only issue, besides cleaning up accidents, is that he's been daytime trained for several months now, but he still prefers to run around with no pants. If someone rings our doorbell, I have to scramble to get him decent. I think the pants might bother his eczema on his legs and bottom.
I have 4 boys and what I found worked for mine wether naked, dressed, pull ups, diapers or whatever.

Consistancy is the big thing with potty training.
Get up in the morning and sit on the pot, snack time on the potty time, before and after lunch sit on the pot, up from nap is potty time, afternoon snack is potty time, and before bedtime. Have a couple of potty books or potty only toys to play with while sitting on the pot.

Start getting them used to the idea of potty training by having a favorite stuffed animal or lovey use the potty and make potty sounds like the lovely is pottying.

Bowels take a bit longer due to human anatomy and reconizing brain signals in young children.

For boys make it a game. Float cheerios in the commode and have them target practice.

When they tinkle or number 2 in the potty make a big deal out of the accomplishment.. Do a potty party. Have potty party hats, sing and dance around and have a special treat for potty accomplishments.

Whatever works for each child is whats best.....

My oldest at 2 1/2 took the lint trap, right inside the dryer door, out of the dryer and stood there with his hands on his hips and tinkled right into the opening, which luckily went straight out the bottom of the dryer to the floor.... I dont how I would have explained that to an appliance person had I needed to have one clean and repair the wee wee debaucle.

The shirt will also make sure if he pees it runs down his legs rather than shooting straight out.
naked potty training is the only that worked for my daughter.
Its good to know my kids are "normal".
I can't deal with naked PTing! It stresses me out worrying about the messes my child may be making around the house.

We did fine with underwear and even Pullups. We used the potty routine much like Cajun Baby.


I don't believe in controlling the potty training of little ones, I think they do it on their own when they're ready.

Around 15 months they become interested in the potty chair. I let them use it when they want while still wearing diapers. Eventually they begin using the potty more and diapers less.

Both my girls have spent most of their potty training days naked. Apparently it's a natural thing for them b/c I can't keep clothes on them during this time.

I have friends who have not had their kids out of diapers even during the daytime until they were close to 5. No way.
Kids potty train at different rates. And boys usually train later than girls. 3 1/2 isn't that late at all. He may wake up one morning and just do it.

Children at that age are always in a power struggle. Using the bathroom is the one thing they can have the ultimate control of.

And unless there is complete lack of encouragement in the home, or just laziness where the parents force the kids to stay in diapers, no child will go into Kindergarten in diapers.

We still encourage them to go, ask them if they need to use the potty, make a big deal out of being a 'big girl', but we let them take the lead. If they're in a diaper, and they want to use the potty, then we stop what we're doing and find the nearest bathroom. I've never had to emulate the housebreaking of a dog with my children.
Like RCW, I have never been a huge fan of potty training via nudity. I suppose it is alright in your own home, but what are you going to do when you need to go out in public. IDK - maybe I am a little put off because a friend of mine had her son running around pantless at a city park during another friend's son's birthday party.

For Ds, he started off with wearing those thick waffle weave under wear and wearing Pull-Ups at naps and diapers at nighttime. Now he is just wearing diapers at nighttime.

I wasn't going to let her be a nudist for weeks on end, and I certainly wouldn't let her run around naked at someone else's house! That's horrible manners.

I agree!! We do not go naked in public, at others' homes, or when there is company at our house. DS has no modesty though, and he would be perfectly happy running around starkers when people come over, but we insist on being clothed.
my oldest PTed at almost 4. It took all of two days. One day he was interested in underwear and I took advantage of the opportunity. We'd set a timer for every 30-45 minutes and he was done for daytime training. Same for the second one. Once they go to underwear that's it, they're done.
I took my daughter to the bathroom with me every time I went, and had her also go some time after eating/drinking. But, what really helped was Dora panties... I told her, "you can't mess up Dora!" And she agreed...thankfully.

We'll see if that trick works for the next girlie.
