Hi all, DS is 2 1/2. He can do a wee and a poo on the potty and sometimes asks but doesn't always. As his poos are horrid (apparently too much fibre in diet, he has several food intolerances so this won't change for a while) I don't want to put him in pants until he is poo trained. Currently (last two weeks) I have him in disposable pull ups during the day and nappies at night. He likes his 'big boy pants'(pull ups). However I am concerened a) as he is in disposables he is not feeling the wetness and therefore not bothering to train and b) pull ups seem quite pricey (as I bought all my washables over 2 years ago!) and he could well be in them for a while.
Have other people used washable pull ups? Which brands? I'm tempted to go with the tots bots but don't want to waste money. £45 for 5 - would that only last a day?( so I would need to speng eg £90 for 10?) The bambino mio ones seem more suited for catching small accidents rather than actually helping with training (but are half the price).
I would also get to use them for dd in 2 yrs or so.
Bambino Mio - definitely small accidents only - give you perhaps 5sec grace to get the trousers off! I got ds some good ones from Flame (Bumfluff nappies?) on this site which we used for nights for some time - she may be able to advise.
I use kushies bright trainers - hold a full wee and can be used for a nap - despite kushies nappies being useless these are actually reaaly good - you can get them at www.thebabycatalogue.com -don't get the pale ones - only the bright ones. Bright bots trainers and BM trainers are okay but no real waterproofing in them!
TotsBots ones are nice and are waterproof but are a bit expensive. I used the kushies ones on my older sons when we got dry at night aswell.
Mistlethrush, do you know which ones you had? The bumfluff website has Bright Bots, Diaperaps and MotherEase training pants, but the ME ones are nearly £16!
Thx Octothechildherder, they look quite good. I guess I would go for 3 yr old rather than 2 yr old for a 2 1/2 yr old? I already have some kushies aio's that I like esp. for nursery when they change VERY regularly and so don't need the absorbancy.
I found the Bright Bots ones brilliant for daytime but I wouldn't have put him to sleep in them! They hold quite a lot of wee, I usually only had to change pants not trousers, and they feel like real pants. Ds4 still uses them the odd time now at 4 when I'm behind with the laundry but not at nursery as someone there told him they were "weird pants".
It was the Diaperwraps - she got them in because I put a thread on asking where you could get them as I had managed to get 2prs 2nd hand at NCT sale and they were great - and she got them in specially. They are not fully leakproof - but significantly better than the Bambino Mio ones and nice and soft and comfortable - and not crackly!!!! So - if he had an accident during the day (when we first got them, more likely!) it would give a reasonable time to get his trousers off before needing fresh trousers (ie lots more than 5secs) but if we had an accident at night when he was asleep, it would require a bed change, but not disasterously so ifykwim.
Hello, sorry if this is cheeky but I have 2 pairs of Motherease Trainer Pants in really excellent condition. Only worn a few times. They are both eco theme - one has & ducks on, the other elephants and tigers. They are both large size. I used to use them at soft play as I dodn't want poop mess getting near other LOs, but he never actually pooped in them! With these on occasionally a full wee would leak on to his clothes but never cause a puddle iyswim?
