Potty Training Pants

Within a couple of weeks after Maddie was born Josie decided that it was time to start potty training.  I say Josie decided because it was not part of my plan to have a 3 week old baby and start potty training a 22 month old.  Josie has never liked being in a poop filled diaper but about a month ago she started telling me yucky when she needed to be changed.  After that she wanted to be changed after every time she went potty in her diaper (which starts to be a bit expensive).  I decided to put the potty chair out where she could use it and something clicked and she took right to it.  We had a few accidents and no one likes to clean up puddles on their carpet/floor so I decided to make her some of the training pants that I found a tutorial about on Pinterest.  It's been a month now and I love these panties.  They don't hold all the pee but I no longer have a puddle to clean up as they hold the majority of the pee.
