When “self training” was dragging on for too long, Jaime decided to give her son a bit more encouragement to potty train.
She wanted to avoid expensive and ineffective training diapers, so she came up with her own frugal hack: she fashioned training diapers out of cotton training pants reinforced with maxi pads.
Can we all have a round of applause?
This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about the magical combination of underwear and feminine hygiene products, but it’s such a great idea and potential money-saver I thought the topic was worth revisiting.

Thank you for the fabulous hack, Jaime, and for sharing it on Twitter with #parenthacks so I could find it! I retweeted it, but then figured it was so helpful I should write it up here so more people could find it.
What do you think? Can there ever be enough potty training hacks? I don’t think so. Add yours to the comments here, or share them on social media with the hashtag #parenthacks.
