I am trying to find good training pants for my ds, good in that he can wear them out when he isn't naked at home training (maybe hold one pee...). I'm debating between kushies and imse vimse. I like the colors and the price of the kushies, but I hear good things about the imse vimse... any ideas?

I just got a couple pairs of the imse vimse and a pair of the bummis training pants. I haven't had a chance to use them yet, but they are pretty thin. I'm not sure they would contain an all out pee. I'm thinking they'll be good for when my dd is a little further into potty training. Right now we have just been using the cheap Gerber cotton training underwear (not waterproof) at home and just putting a waterproof cover over that when we go out. It does a pretty good job of holding a single pee and keeping her motivated by letting her feel wet. (She won't use the toilet if she has a pull up or other dry-feeling underwear).

wow it's a slow day around here for getting answers about training pants!<br><br>
I just started using the Imse Vimse yesterday. That's the only brand I've bought and they're quite nice. I went to take my boy to the potty and realized he'd peed in them but they didn't leak or anything.<br><br>
I can't compare them to any other brands but they're quite nice. Take a long time to dry in the dryer and i"m not even sure they are supposed to GO in the dryer but that'd be my only comment. They're very soft and also cute.

the imse vimse are awesome, but only if your child is pretty close to being PL'd. they don't really hold a whole pee without getting the clothes a bit damp because the leg ribbing is cotton and it wicks to the outside cotton. also not super easy to remove if there's a poop accident as it has no snaps. we mostly used them when DS was consistently using the potty at home but i found them to be waaaay more absorbent than the Gerber padded undies i had with DD, and anyway we don't do Gerber anymore now that Nestle bought them out.<br><br>
my faves for earlier PL'ing were the Snap-EZ AIO's. side-snapping, waterproof outer, easy to pull on and off, trim. the waterproof ones from the EC store with the side snaps are similar, i haven't tried them, but i've seen them and they look a lot like the SEZ's.<br><br>
we tried, but didn't like, the HH's, MOE's, and Bummis. HH's and Bummis were too puffy and bulky and not as easy to get on and off, the MOE's held less than the imse vimse but had the waterproof outer that made it seem much more like a diaper.

Hey if you're going to CD, why should that stop at potty training? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
That said, thanks for the answers, like CD's seems like you gotta try em yourself... I just don't feel like starting that whole thing again. I think i've got a game plan, thanks mama's!!
