~Training Pants~

 
 

 

Toilet learning is milestone in every child’s life just like crawling and walking. But just like crawling and walking it will come when the child is ready, not when parents think it should. It requires sensory awareness and motor control, two very different skills which come in time as the child develops. Training pants will not really effect the time at which these skills arrive, but when your child is showing signs that these skills are here training pants might make the transition easier for you. I transitioned all my children from diapers to underwear without the use of training pants (we just pulled loosely fastened fitted diapers and covers up and down), so I do not see them as a requirement but an option to get through a stage easier. What I do think is the most important thing about choosing training pants is to be sure you are picking a product that fills the need you are asking of it. The biggest question I believe is whether you need a product which will just be a wetness catcher, to be changed as soon as the accident happens, or if you need it to be a wetness holder, because the child does not have sensory awareness and will not let you know when they have an accident. In these cases, you also need to decide how much you need the trainers to hold, how heavy your child wets.

If you need trainers for a child who has sensory awareness and will let you know when accidents happen so they can be change right away then the trainers need not hold as much and can be much more underwear-like in design and function. Trainers good for this option are:
Blueberry Daytime Trainers and Imse Vimse Trainers. These are both trainers with a small cotton pad, a PUL layer and cotton outer. These will catch and hold a full accident for a short period, but because they are cotton inside and out will quickly wick wetness to other absorbent things like clothing and sheets. These work great for daytime training. Imse Vimse have a more brief underwear fit and Blueberry have a lower rise fit more like bikini underwear. Imse Vimse have a more gathered waist and Blueberry waist have a smoother waist. I think you will prefer the one that happens to fit your child better! Blueberry are made in USA, Imse Vimse is not…

If your child is not letting showing signs when he or she wets then you need trainers with a waterproof outer like the Starbunz or Happy Heinys Trainers. Both are stuffable pockets with a PUL outer. Because they have a PUL outer without the wickable cotton layer they will hold accidents for as long as you need, but only if you have enough absorbency added to match the amount wetness they have caught. The Starbunz has a trimmer design and a small soaker pad built in. Trimmer means less bulk but also less room for stuffing more in. Better for situations where heavy wetting and lots of stuffing will be required. The Happy Heinys Trainers have no built in absorbency and a much roomier fit which leave plenty of room to stuff as much as you would need all night long, but it makes for a very poofy fit. I think they are best for overnignt use and are made in sizes which will accomodate those children who need overnight protection at larger sizes.
