Woolies and potty training?

So we are thinking about potty training here since Declan has started to say things like "me big, me pee potty" but we are 99% woollies around here (and by 99% I mean we have 1 pair of jeans) and clearly I wasn't thinking about potty training when I bought/made this years stash since only 2 pairs have elastic waists. I don't really want to have to go out and buy all new pants to potty train with, but what did you guys do about the whole I-cord thing? Maybe sew some elastic onto the back of the waist band?? Is it just not a problem and I'm over thinking it? And after they are potty trained his lovely woollies will probably not fit, right??

Levi chooses his longies sometimes (not wool, I'm allergic, but the same idea, lol) and he's in undies now. He just unties them when he needs to potty and I tie them back up for him when he's done. No biggie.

Re: Woolies and potty training?

Every single one of my kids has been able to untie their woolies by the time they were six months old, so my pottying toddlers being able to get them down is a non-issue. Generally I help them wipe and get re-dressed, so retying them again has never been an issue. Post-training, woolies definitely still fit. My now-six-year-old wore woolies as long as we could- even wearing her 2T longies as capris when she was 5!

Nope. Faster than most pants. One tug of a string unties the bulk of the knot and the rest easily loosens and the woolies drop down.

Re: Woolies and potty training?

I did the same thing. Made a full stash of woolies and she pled. i did about half elastic. She is so skinny butted that she can pul her drawstring pants down.

My DD can pull down her drawstring woolies faster than her elastic ones. I think the elastic I used is too stiff. I have to use both hands to get the elastic ones down but she can do drawstring ones with one hand by herself.
