We did it! My toddler is finally day time potty trained! He has finally gotten to the point where he is really good about telling us when he needs to use the potty. He even does a little potty dance if he has to pee really bad. It's cute and I'm thankful we're over the hump! We're still using trainers during nap time and diapers at night. Most naps he wakes up dry, but occasionally he won't. Some nights he stays dry, but it isn't consistent.
During our potty training time, we tried a lot of cloth trainers. Eventually, I sold everything except the Bummis Potty Pants. Hands down, those were my absolute favorite trainers out of all the brands we tried! I stocked up on Bummis once we realized they were our favorite and they got us through trips to the grocery store, long car rides, naps, preschool mornings, and more!
When I was first looking into trainers, I thought I wanted something that could snap on and off. The Bummis Potty Pant doesn't have this feature, but I didn't find myself missing it. Sure, it would be convenient to be able to snap the trainer off when poop accidents happen, but I rarely found myself cleaning up a huge mess. Luckily, for the most part, my son was really good about pooping on the potty. I don't have one of those kids that hides or holds it for days because he's afraid.
Bummis Potty Pant Features

Sized for a perfect fit
Stretchy sides for toddlers of all sizes
I really love absolutely everything about the Bummis Potty Pant. They look great on my toddler and really do look like underwear with the white trim. They are comfortable for him with the stretchy sides creating a perfect fit. They are sized and I have found that the sizing guide is very accurate. We started on the medium (25-30 lbs) but once my toddler hit the 30 lb mark they started being too small and we sized up to the large (30-35 lbs). I love that this trainer is absorbent enough to catch an accident without allowing the clothing to get wet. This is important when we're out running errands or on car trips where he is stuck in a car seat. The cotton lining inside helps my toddler to know when he has an accident so we can deal with it right away.
This is a one time use trainer (versus a trainer with a reusable shell and inserts). I'm a one-time use kind of girl anyway. I always used my AI2 diapers like AIOs, so it doesn't bother me that I have to get a clean trainer once this one was soiled. Snaps would be a cool feature, but honestly without snaps, I still love this trainer. The snaps aren't a deal breaker to me. In fact, I think not having snaps helps them to feel more like underwear and less like diapers for my toddler.
The Potty Pant comes in two prints and one solid color. You can choose Denim Dot (blue with green, red, and white dots), Pistachio Dot (bright green with pink, green, and white dots) or solid white. I do wish there were more options for colors and prints, but the available options are still adorable.
