I use these for outings with my potty trained 2 year old. We are on the smallest rise setting and they fit very well. I like the trim fit and ease for the child. The pad sort of velcros in there and you just switch it out when it gets wet. I tried using these while we were training a few times and you can unsnap the sides if its soiled which is fantastic. But since its just a loose little pad there isn't much there so I always used 2 of the pads with that early on possible accidents training. I used mostly 100% organic cotton trainers without waterproofing just under wool during that time so it was less like a diaper unless we went out and then these are great. And if you don't use wool and your child is training I would say use these! Now even being trained I'm worried we will have a time when were somewhere like the highway and we will have an accident because holding it only lasts so long... But its not a diaper so its acceptable... That accident thankfully has yet to happen but I like to err on the side of caution so this is perfect. And its not noticeable under clothing. I think 1-2 of these and 6-12 pads is all you'll need.

These did not fool my child. They do not look or feel like undies just weird diapers. If trainers need to hold what a diaper does just use the diapers.

I've used these with two children and really didn't have much success with either of them. They really just don't fit any stage of potty training well.

These really aren't any different than a diaper when it comes to how they feel. They are just as water resistant, wick very well, and are nearly as absorbent. Usually, my kids didn't even notice when they had wet the pants until they were absolutely sopping.

During that first stage of learning, they have to notice those first few drips of urine. Otherwise, they can't get to the potty in time to correct the situation! So, these pants are useless for early learning.

They're just as bulky as the Flip diapers (so they don't fit well under toddler pants). The side panels make them very easy to slide on and off. Unfortunately, this means they often slide off when you don't want them to. My daughters were always hiking their pants up. Even on the tightest setting, the side panels just can't hold up the weight of the pants and insert. They stretch out of shape very quickly.

Because of these fit issues, the pants just aren't comfortable, especially under clothing. My third daughter cries when I pull them out.

While they're too absorbent for daytime learning, they're also not absorbent enough to use at nighttime. So, they don't even make good "occasional bed wetter" pants!

Changing out the pads during the day is a PITB. It's the *exact* process of changing a diaper (unsnap, un-stuff, re-stuff, place on child). For my kids, this led to an identical experience of having a diaper changed, except they weren't lying on a table. Not good when you're trying to impress upon them the idea that diapers are no longer acceptable.

Honestly, I had four of these, but I just can't seem to find a use for them that outweighs the negatives. Maybe long car rides when they're finally trained, but who wants to sit in these bricks while strapped into a car seat for a few hours?

These do not even come close to fitting my almost three-year-old. He's very small, wearing clothing size 18-24 months, and weighing about 23lbs. However, I expected them to be a bit more adjustable than they are. He won't wear them because they are too loose. I will save them for our younger son who is a larger baby and, I think, will be a larger toddler.

This is a good product, and I planned to use it with prefolds for early potty training, but it's too big for my small 2 yr old (23 lbs), so will have to get something else. Pretty sure she'll be potty trained before it fits, too!

I have been using cloth diapers for over 3.5 years and am very happy with this trainer. It's very trim fitting and my 42 pound son has room left in the groin area and is on the last snaps. He pulls it up and down easily even in public. If he has a light leak I simply change the pad inside. It's very light for my cloth diaper bag because all I carry are the inserts and he keeps wearing the shell. There is velcro in the front and back of the shell that hold the insert in place and it stays put. Only improvement I would like to see for this shell is a lining. There are parts of the shell where the PUL touches the skin, just like a cloth diaper shell, and I do wish there was some lining there. But, overall this is a great system and the pad is more absorbent then underwear or a very thin trainer. The outer layer is waterproof and keeps my sons pants from getting wet. Just like natural fiber diapers, like prefolds, the cotton inserts needs to be prepped. This means that they need to be washed a few times to reach their maximum absorbency. In addition to the removable pad. There are many options for adjustment. The wings have two size settings and can be completely removed to change colors. There is a contoured cut to the wings for the hip and they are stretchy. The front of the pant has rise snaps that allows for more or less room when growing. Really this could be used as a diaper on a bigger baby and easily transition into potty training. It's more narrow through the crotch then the BG 4.0 and 5.0 cloth diapers and fits nicely under clothing.
