Little girl undies help..
We are just at the very beginning of PT my kids and my daughter has a hard time putting her undies on. Boy undies are so much easier and much easier to tell what is front and back. Bella will sometimes try to put both feet through a leg slot or just has more difficulty pulling them up.
Did anyone else experience this?
This will come with age....it is really hard at first, but she will get the hang of it.
I was thinking of little boy undies but she wants nothing to do with my son's she wants Princess type of stuff...
Thanks for all the tips, I think I am going to go off of the brown dot thing and just sew a little bow on the front and tell her that the bow goes to her belly button
My 4 year old still gets it wrong from time to time but honestly I don't think it's a big deal unless they are making her really uncomfortable.
I don't have any kids yet but I may be able to help. I'd say just put her in the little boy undies and rotate until you have the PT down pat. I know you might be thinking "oh my litle girl is in boys underwear" but you'll be the only person who knows right? Once she fully potty trains just put her in little girl panties all the time, she'll get it.
BTW I worked at a daycare for three years and helped with the little girls who were potty training. I know this suggestion worked with some of the girls I watched
Our mantra was "tag in the back." She caught on pretty fast to that.
The panties I have for my daughter who is three years old now has writing on the back as the tag, I just showed her that and she pulls them on herself! Sometimes she makes a mistake and puts both legs in the same hole, or backwards! Have you tried the cloth training pants? They seemed to be easier for my daughter in the beginning! Those had actual tags on them so I showed them to my daughter and she knew how they were supposed to go! Your daughter will get it!
Oh yesss, Quinn has trouble with this so my MIL came up with a good idea. We put a brown dot on the elastic of the front of her undies so she can see where the front is when she sits down to put them on. It helps her out when she's putting them on and so far, it's working well. It's making her a lot more independent and creates less fuss.
yeah - my DD still doesn't understand front and back of clothing. i hand her the clothing the right way, but make her put it on. i also have her sitting down. if she does place both legs into one hole, i remove the underwear and say, "oh no! that was silly! let's try again." once she has her underwear above her knees, she stands up and pulls them all the way up. i tell her to pull up the front first, and then pull up the back. she has figured out that if she pulls from the sides, the underwear goes up and over her butt easier.
it takes practice, but your child will get.
