Potty Training Training Pants

Cloth Training Pants – My Favorites & An Overview

Cloth training pants for #pottytraining via @chgdiapers

Choosing cloth training pants can be nearly as overwhelming as choosing cloth diapers. Styles can vary from essentially being larger diapers, to being slightly padded underwear. Each brand and style has its own merits, but I have found a few favorites.

I generally try to keep reviews objective, since every child is different and every family’s needs & preferences are different, but today I am sharing some of my favorite cloth training pants. If you’re looking for trainers, you might want to check out all my cloth trainer reviews, since my favorites may not be the same as your favorites!

@Kissaluvs pocket trainers for #pottytraining via @chgdiapers 1
I love Kissaluvs Pocket Trainers for their trim fit and ability to be stuffed with more absorbency as needed. These are great for the beginning stages of potty learning, but can also function as just a backup if you do not add absorbency. They are also a good choice if you need larger diapers for your child, since you can stuff & use as a diaper, then use them as trainers later.

@Bummis Potty Pants Trainers for #pottytraining via @chgdiapers small 1
Bummis Potty Pants are a favorite for little ones in the “I do it myself!” stage. They have a very trim fit, and their stretchy sides not only make them super easy to pull up & down, but they make for a great fit on a wide range of shapes. Their built in absorbency isn’t quite enough for nap or night time, but is perfect to catch a full accident!

Going straight to underwear is a good choice, but sometimes it gets old to clean up puddles with every accident and/or have to do no pants or change pants with every accident too. Blueberry trainers are adorable little training pants that look like padded undies. They are soft, comfy and easy to pull up and down. They have just a bit of absorbency and also have a hidden PUL layer, so you can catch an accident without having a big mess to clean up.

Though I don’t dislike any of the brands I’ve used, these 3 are my favorites for how they fit my guys. All 3 of these brands are in the same price range: $14.95 for the Kissaluvs and $15.95 for the Bummis or Blueberry.

    We just bought a Kissaluvs trainer; I’m excited to try it and I hope we get a lot of use out of it. I’m thinking it will be great for naps since you can add absorbency.
