When the time came to toilet train her first child, this young mum was struggling.
The reality of juggling a toilet-training toddler and baby was starting to do Laura's head in! Add to that the overwhelming anxiety whenever you leave the house, of leaving a giant puddle of wee (or worse!) in aisle five of the grocery store. There were undies on the market, but most that claimed to be "absorbent" or "waterproof" were not. In fact, they leaked like a sieve.
As Laura, a qualified teacher, moved into coaching parents, applying the strategies she had developed through her own experiences, more and more parents came to her with a similar problem. They had started toilet training their kids at home in undies. But when they put their kids in nappy pants to go out to daycare or in the car, their child would start to wee in them. Not just that, when they got home their kids didn't want to take off the disposables and return to undies.
Essentially, they were back at square one.
Laura felt that, surely, there must be a way to solve this problem, and to save money on disposables at the same time. She gathered up all her courage and stepped out into the unknown, designing and painstakingly perfecting a prototype for Wee Pants.
Here’s what happened next
Laura’s first shipment of Wee Pants, a year’s worth, sold out in just three months.
And it’s no wonder.
Her Wee Pants are one of those absolute gems of a product.
They are one of the best tools we've found for making toilet-training easy.
They’re designed so that you don’t need to use nappies when you’re going out, or when your child goes to daycare, or even at night! They look, feel AND sound just like nice soft undies, but they have a waterproof lining and just the right amount of absorbency to avoid the dreaded floor puddle. Plus, they are so easy to clean!
Your little one will feel the dampness on their skin, but not leave a mess to clean up.
And what about number 2’s? Again, Wee Pants has a wonderfully simple solution. The Wee Pants bamboo liners, eco-friendly and so easy to use, make cleaning up after any ‘pootastrophes’ a total breeze.
The bit your kids will love best are the range of beautiful designs, which will make the transition from nappies to underwear feel like a special, fun step, rather than something overwhelming.
You've got this, mama!
