Following news today that Fearne Cotton has potty trained her son, many parents may be looking for advice and support on when to start potty training their little ones. HUGGIES Pull-Ups, have the perfect solution with their new learning liner inside their potty training pants. The clever blue learning liner allows toddlers to feel a brief sensation of wetness for a few moments, before drawing moisture away - teaching them the difference between being wet and dry and ultimately allowing them to stay dry on their own.

Just like real underwear, HUGGIES Pull-Ups potty training pants help teach kids about becoming dry while containing little accidents. This gives mums time to get their little one to the potty or toilet, without having to deal with added mess.

HUGGIES Pull-Ups ambassador and child psychologist Emma Kenny says: 'Potty training is widely regarded as a stressful time for mums, but it doesn't have to be. The new innovative learning liner not only offers a practical approach to potty training but helps make potty training easier.'

Huggies Pull-Ups have sent over some great tips to Female First for parents who want to help their children learn about potty training whilst making that process as stress free as possible.

HUGGIES top tips to make potty training stress free

  1. Dress your toddler in loose fitting clothes and items which they can easily remove such as a tracksuit or similar elasticated waist bottoms. Avoid fiddly clothes such as dungarees. You can also start to understand the signs and messages your child is giving you which can help limit accidents. If your little one is managing to use the potty and appears happy to do so then it's pretty clear that with a good routine and guidance, the journey to being fully potty trained is underway.
  2. Another helpful learning tip is to let your child personalise their potty by encouraging them to decorate it with stickers etc. Try rewarding your child with little treats each time they use their potty successfully, such as colouring books, matchbox toys or crayons.
  3. Have lots of games and toys at hand to keep your child entertained between toilet breaks and encourage them to talk to you about how they are feeling, while reiterating that if they do need to use the potty just to let you know.
