There are so many different options out there! How do you figure out the right toddler cloth training pants to buy for your little one? When I was making a new purchase for my child I liked to read reviews to get the real story. Reviews will help you weed through the numerous toddler cloth training pants to find the cream of the crop. Thanks Mama has an excellent ratings system and many parents have rated the training pants found there. Parents selected the Flip Potty System, the EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants, and the Imse Vimse Training Pants as some of their favorites.
The Flip Potty Training System is unique. It has an outer waterproof shell with detachable absorbent inserts. When your child wets the trainer simply remove the wet insert from the shell, wipe it out and attach a clean and dry insert. The inserts are made from 6 layers of absorbent organic cotton. The Flip Trainers have stretchy sides and can be pulled up and down by your child or unsnapped in case of an accident. One reviewer commented that because the trainers used detachable inserts she didn’t need to buy as many trainers. Another reviewer who had a large toddler said that the Flip Trainers contained messes well. They come in several different colors and prints with contrasting stretchy side panel colors.
The EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants are soft inside and out. A layer of TPU waterproof material is sandwiched between the outer layer of recycled water bottles and organic cotton and the two thirsty inner layers of bamboo and organic cotton. A mother of three from New England said that the EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants were “not bulky and don’t make any noise like vinyl pants”. One reviewer from California who uses these training pants for her 4 year old at night reported that these feel soft, like thick underwear. Thanks Mama has them available in several different colors and sizes designed to fit from 25-45+ lbs.
The training pant that ranked the highest among the reviewers at Thanks Mama was the Imse Vimse Organic Cotton Training Pants. With organic cotton on the outside and organic terry on the inside they are soft inside and out. A layer of PUL between the cotton layers helps contain the wetness. A reviewer from Massachusetts commented on the comfortable leg elastic. Another parent in Massachusetts who had been unsuccessful with disposable trainers gave Imse Vimse Training Pants a try and said that after two days her child was able to tell her when he was wet. Many parents mentioned the softness and how it was easy for their child to pull up and down. These come in white as well as a couple of cute prints and have sizes to fit from 20-54 lbs.
Reading reviews from parents who have used the training pants can help make a difficult decision a little easier. Thanks Mama not only offers toddler cloth training pants from brands like Imse Vimse, EcoPosh, and Flip, but they also have training pants from many other brands. Take a look, read the reviews, and decide which training pants will work best for your toddler.
