We are getting ready to enter the scary world of potty training with my 2.5 yo DS.

We're slowly starting too....altho with DH home with her now, I told him to read up on the 3-5 day plans....but anyway. she has a few pairs of cloth trainers and I'm not all that impressed. we ended up with the snap-ez pocket trainers and they're really nothing different than our pocket diapers except they only have one snap setting and I guess are easier to slip on than a pocket, like real undies. DD has huge thighs tho, so the size we got doesn't really do her any good which sucks since we got 3 pair. Anyway, with those, you literally use the same insert as with a pocket....we were talked out of the ones that aren't waterproof but have a little absorption....I think I'd rather have had those. ANYWAY, I think with the plans that DH is going to try and use, you go straight to regular undies....so what I've described that we have would be ok for out and about, but so would a regular diaper. I dunno, kinda cranky that I bought some blueberry minky trainers a year ago for a great price and I got a size that's WAY too small for her now....and now I've spent more on more that I just don't think are going to do any good. the kids need to FEEL wet in order to know they should have felt the urge to go and asked....stay-dry pocket styles don't allow that, so I don't know. not much help, huh?

Cloth trainers are expensive. Some people just buy fitted diapers and use those.

I really liked Apple Dumpling Gear trainers but I don't think they're made anymore. I liked mainly Daisy Doodles waterproof trainers. http://daisy-doodles.com

I use waterproof while I'm in pubic because I don't like to have a wet lap, everyone gets changed in some restroom etc.

I also like the diapers from Sassy Cloth and they're cheaper. I will be trying out the trainers with PUL outer/sewn in soaker/touch tape or snap on sides/ flannel inner so they can feel wetness http://www.sassycloth.com/4.html

For at home use the cheap Gerber cloth (non waterproof) trainers are fine. They can leak through to pants if it's a full pee but at home I don't mind.
