Anyone know of any? I know there are many great sellers of lovely cloth training pant products, but I am looking for something cheap & simple, like the Gerber training pants.

Any leads?

Thanks.

I can't remember for sure, but I thought I saw them at Walmart. Of course, I wasn't looking carefully because it was probably more of an "oh, there are those awful training pants that didn't work for us".
I have used the Motherease waterproof trainers, and the Kushies. You can get the Kushies in Sears and BRU, iirc, but I don't remember how expensive they were.
Also, are you looking for just absorbant underwear, or with a waterproof cover?
Hope someone else can help you!

I remember seeing some at Sears, in the baby department where they sell Kushies diapers. I wasn't impressed with them though. They were stiff, rubbery, elastics were likely to rub against skin and absolutely non-breathable. They were sold as a two pack and unfortunately I can't remember how much they were.

I'd recommend Motherease covers if thats what you're looking for. They're not that much more $ but they last a LONG time and they work well. I have some covers that have gone through at least 3 babies!

I bought some at Wal-Mart, I believe they were Kushies. They weren't very absorbent but I didn't want them to be diapers so they did the trick for us!

I got some of the gerber plastic pants at walmart.  I also got some kushies covers from walmart as well.  Sears also has some Kushies covers.
