Potty Training is Quicker Thanks to gNappies

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 2, 2012) - Potty training is a difficult time for toddlers and parents alike so make it a quicker and less daunting task by using innovative hybrid nappy range gNappies.

After months of changing nappies, potty training tends to come as a welcome relief to parents however it can also be a stressful time with lots of little accidents along the way. gNappies is therefore recommending parents avoid prolonging the process by using their hybrid nappy system on their babies from birth.

According to research, toddlers who have worn cloth or hybrid nappies from birth are more aware that he or she has wet themselves because they can feel the moisture and weight. Regular plastic disposable nappies incorporate a large amount of technology to prevent this from occurring, making them so absorbent that the toddler cannot feel anything at all which often leaves them confused as to why they need to use the potty instead. If a child feels wet they will be more inclined to avoid it in the future therefore potty training is inevitably quicker with a cloth nappy than it is with non-disposable options.

Co-founder of gNappies, Kim Graham-Nye, commented: "Mainstream plastic nappies are designed to keep children dry but it is exactly that function that deters them from having the desire to learn to use the potty. While gNappies are comfortable for babies and toddlers, they are aware when they are wet which makes the transition between nappies and potties a lot smoother."

Launched in 2005 by founders Kim Graham-Nye and her husband Jason, gNappies offers parents the option to choose between washable gCloth nappies inserts and disposable gRefill nappy inserts which are ideal for busy parents as they are home compostable or can be disposed of in the domestic waste. The gCloth and gRefills are designed to fit securely inside little gPants nappy covers to avoid any little mishaps whilst potty training; they are available in sizes newborn up to XL so that parents can use gNappies right through from day one to the all-important training time.

For new parents, the gBaby bundle is the ideal starter pack available on the dedicated gNappies website. Filled with all the essential nappy items, the pack includes 12 tiny gPants which are ideal for newborns, 6 little gPants for when they grow bigger, and finally 80 biodegradable gRefills.
