Underwear help

Hi,
I've been trying to toilet train my 5 year old son but he hates the feel of the underwear on his skin but he's ok when he is wearing his nappy as he can't feel it. Has anyone got any tips that i could try with him please?

Loose boxer shorts? Would they work?

Hi Starfish,

We had a similar thing with our little one too. We found some loose boxers at Asda children's section. The material is really light and very loose fitting. Fingers cross that does the trick for you 🤞

Sorry should have also added that we got one size up and they look like shorts. Which I think helped our little boy as he didn't then have to have another pair of trousers or shorts on. I think the fresh air helped down below helped and similar to some of the other potty training suggestions that say just to leave them running around with nothing on their bottom half. Good luck!
