My 2 y/o son has started asking to use the potty, he doesn't actually "go" yet but I like to indulge his curiosity in the whole process, but the whole diaper on/ diaper off process just so he can sit and not go on the potty is starting to get old. It seems the logical thing (as I certainly don't want to discourage his willingness to try) is to switch from diapers to training pants, at least when we're at home. I did my own research for the cloth diapers, which led to me having 6 different types and only 2 pairs of diapers I actually like, so to save myself a repeat of that whole nonsense I was wondering if any of you could tell me what you used for training pants and how you felt about them. Thanks so much!

We used Hanna Andersson's training unders.  They were relatively thick.  I couldn't find anything else I liked quite as much.

We're using Super Undies for naps and night-time.  Cute, and they have different styles, some with snaps on the back for messes, some just pull on.

Can you sew at all? (I mean even a little tiny bit??)  I made these tinkle time trainers.  They were super easy and I loved them!  I made two sets since we did EC, a size sm that fit from about 7 mos to 13 mos, and a size M that fit DS until he graduated at 18 mos.  I'd say a medium or large would do you.


I ordered 1 pair from here to get a sense for the fabrics and how to put them together.  Of course these were much more perfect than mine, but mine did the trick and cost about $4 each to make!

For early training I really like imse vimse training pants with built in PUL. They retain value you quite well. We usually those and switch to regular (glorious Hanna Anderson) underwear.
