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