My dd is at that stage that she wants to 'help' put on her diaper, and the AIO training pants we have are not working yet. She is in the very, very early stages of potty learning but I want to have the backup of a diaper while still letting her feel like a big girl. So...I was thinking I might try putting elastic around the entire top of the VB AIO pattern. Do you think this would work? Anyone had any success with doing something similar? I was thinking I'd make it a size large (she is on the upper range of the medium, but they still fit great) so it wouldn't be too small with the elastic on it.<br><br>
I'm hoping this would be the best of both kinds for this in between time. Absorbancy, plus being a pull-up style, still able to open velcro to deal with accidents...what do you ladies think?<br><br>
ETA: I've made AIOs from my own pattern before, I just have a hard time getting the sizing exactly what I want so thats why I switched to using a pattern <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

A side aplix diaper that has elastic in the front and back can work. It's harder with cloth because cloth is bulkier so they have more to wrangle with until you get down to a training pant thinness. I think that's why nobody really makes one that is good for both. My daughter still has a difficult time even getting panties up and she's almost four. But of all the diapers that we tried to use as "pull ups" the side aplix with really stretchy elastic in the legs (we like lastin) worked the best.

I would love something like this. I think something with snaps would be best. It would seem aplix would too easily come apart as she stretches it over her little bum. I have one daisy doodles trainer and it is side snapping with elastic all around the top and it works well. I would love to have something just like that with more absorbency than just a "one pee" trainer offers. I think that would be perfect for the inbetween stage. And also the stage my dd is in--just needing a diaper at night. She hates having to lay down to put a diaper on now.
