Has anyone used them? What are the best brands? I'm thinking about getting them for my son.

Hello Stephanie.


Early trainers or Gerber are pretty good pants.


I do not use them as I find they are outgrown pretty fast for the price.


I prefer the thicker 5 ply training pants with plastic pants as separate pieces as the plastic pants can be used on diapers,training pants,and regular underwear when out if needed.


I hope this helps.


Many Blessings.

I got him regular toddler underpants yesterday. I realize they're not very absorbent or waterproof, but I'm hoping that he'll notice when he goes.
I wrapped them up like a present and gave them to him this morning. He's wearing them now.
I thought I'd have him run around (while at home) in his underpants and tshirt, so he can take them off easier. Then when we go out I'll put a pull-up on him.
We'll see how today goes, and take it one day at a time.

Hi, Stephanie


You may want to ask at the Diapering board here on iVillage.

I use the cloth diapering cover:

for when we are out and about. At home we just do undies and I teach them to clean up their accidents when/if they have them. I try not to use pull-ups too often as they feel like a diaper and I've found that my kids stay in the "accident cycle" longer if they are wearing them... it is not uncomfortable to pee in the pull-up like it is in undies.
