I first heard of Snap-EZ during the great cloth diaper hunt, when I swear I spent hours looking at a virtual store shelf of trainers on an extreme sponsor’s site! What really caught my eye is the extreme size range they have, to fit older children, special needs children, and adults. They have extenders available to make them even larger. Though the pocket diapers have the widest size range (starting at youth small, and going up to adult XL), the training pants come in sizes that will fit kids with a 22″ rise, 20″ thighs and 30″ waist!
The last mystery product from Kissaluvs is training pants, as readers had guessed!
They will be available in a 2T (20-32 lbs) and a 3T (28-40 lbs.)
They have two snap settings on each side and are easy to pull up and down without unsnapping.
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.
The Kissa’s training pants are pocket trainers, so you can stuff them to customize the absorbency.
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.)
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.
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.

While my daughter was interested in the potty at 16 months, my son is definitely not! Even so, I’m interested in training pants, and I know lots of you are too! Bumbledoo sent me a pair of teeny tiny adorable Bumble Training Pants.

Above is the trainer measured folded and stretched. It seems “smaller” than the diapers my son is wearing, but really, it just has more of an underwear style cut.
|Trainer vs Medium O/S Diapers|
I had intended to just try the trainer on him for now, but with all the absorbency, I ended up using as a diaper (I just checked it a little early, just in case!) It was nice because it was super easy to put on him.
In these photos he is about 18.5 pounds, 30″ at 16 months old. It fit him well and he definitely has lots of room to grow into it too!
Bumbledoo also makes (deep breath!): bumble all-in-two diapers, prefolds, diaper covers, pocket diapers, swim diapers, burp cloth prefolds (I love these!), inserts, wipes, organizers, booties (oh I wish I had a little girl to put those on!!) toddler aprons, mama cloth, nursing covers, nursing pads and offers diaper repair and embroidery. Whew. I’m wondering if there is anything she doesn’t do!
