Kissaluvs Training Pants 1

The last mystery product from Kissaluvs is training pants, as readers had guessed!

Kissaluvs Training Pants 2 backKissaluvs Training Pants 3 side

They will be available in a 2T (20-32 lbs) and a 3T (28-40 lbs.)

Kissaluvs Training Pants 4 snap closures

They have two snap settings on each side and are easy to pull up and down without unsnapping.

Kissaluvs Training Pants 5 inner

The inner is what made me say “oohhhhh!!” when I opened the package. The dinos are so darn cute!! The inner is 100% cotton flannel, so a toddler will feel the wetness of an accident.

Kissaluvs Training Pants 6 pocket

The Kissa’s training pants are pocket trainers, so you can stuff them to customize the absorbency.

Kissaluvs Training Pants 7 sewn in soaker

The training pant has a 2-layer microfiber insert sewn in, so it can be used as is (this is the trainer pictured inside out.)

Kissaluvs Training Pants 8 with microfiber insert

The trainer is quite trim and a little narrow through the crotch, but I was able to stuff a narrower full-size insert in the pocket.

Above is the 2T trainer I received, compared to the Kissaluvs Marvels AIO on the large setting. My son is 2 years old and 23 pounds and still wears the medium setting of the Marvels AIO and other one-size diapers, so he could really use a bit smaller size in the trainer.

The 2T trainer was really easy to pull on and seemed to fit well, but for a great fit, we’d need it to be a little more snug at the legs (he ended up sagging a bit.) My son is rather unusual though; he is just now on the growth charts at 2 years old, and still wears mostly 24 month clothing.

Kissaluvs Training Pants 13 2t back on baby

The trainers will be available in lagoon blue, chocolate (what I reviewed) or gold with the dino inner, and white with a cycle print inner. They will be available starting June 15th with an MSRP of $14.95, but they will have an introductory price of just $12.95 until the end of June!

I’d say the sewn in soaker is enough to catch an accident, but you’d need to add an insert to hold more than that. I think they are really a great value since they are available in larger sizes and can be used as a pocket diaper or trainer. You can buy them for a baby who is perhaps on the cusp of learning to use the potty and use them as a pocket diaper first, a trainer later. This is especially great since there aren’t that many diapers available to fit kids who outgrow large cloth diapers. Of course, I haven’t seen/measured a 3T but since the 2T is about the same size as a large diaper, I think it’s safe to assume the 3T is larger. :-) 2013 update: See the 3T & both on my 4.5 year old in my updated Kissaluvs trainers review.

FTC compliance: I received the pictured item at no cost in order to review it. I was not otherwise compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own.

Love the dinosaurs.

They’re perfect! Cotton inner and snap-off. I got some Blueberry trainers and I like them a lot because they’re more underwear-like than diaper-like, and cute, but we’re still working on getting #2 in the potty, so snap-off is a good feature right now!

This would be great to train my older daughter with a new baby on the way! Great giveaway!

My kiddo can’t get the snaps undone which is good, but I still much prefer velcro for putting the diapers on so I’d hope kissaluvs does that!

I have some fitteds and am expecting some contours shortly. I would love to start my trainer stash! :) I know how it is with small kids, my daughter will be 3 in a couple months and she is just 27 lbs and can still wear some 18mo clothes. I made her trainers because she was so small (We do ECing so they are in trainers earlier than most). My boy though will probably fit in these in few months when I will start putting him in trainers or fitteds and no cover. He is almost 3 months and 15lbs!
