With the use of disposable diapers over the past years becoming a norm, due to its ease of usage for both babies and parents, the age of potty training has gone up. If children were no longer using diapers at the age of 2 some 10 years ago, most children nowadays will potty train around 3 years. Cloth training pants are designed for children who are ready to potty train and ready to come out of the diaper phase. Training pants are child’s first pants, to be pulled up and which they will proudly put on themselves.
Cloth training pants do not act as diapers and would not hold as much wee as diapers can. It is designed to catch the first pee and small accidents. Once the child has told you they have wet themselves, you should change them as soon as possible, as these will only hold the wee for a few minutes before leaking around the legs. Remember that you shouldn't expect a trainer pant to replace a diaper, they are really for children who are almost there, almost dry, but who just need a bit of protection from accidents.
Why use training pants?
When wearing diapers both cloth (with microfleece layer) and disposable diapers, the child will remain dry and don’t feel really wet. However, the cloth trainers are designed without microfleece (associated to the stay-dry effect) so that they will feel wet after peeing. It is this new and unpleasant sensation of wet which will make them associate the need of a wee with wet pants and help them in their transition from using diapers to not using them anymore.
The child would also feel proud to wear little pants and not diapers anymore, which will help them further in their potty learning process.
Our training pants are made from100% cotton with hidden layer of waterproof material with 2 layers of terry sewn inside to absorb wetness. A soft elastic is sewn at the waist for good fit.
