Nicki's Diapers sent me their newly introduced Best Bottom Potty Training Kit. This kit includes 1 Training Pant and 3 snap-in FeelWet Inserts at a very economical cost of just $22.95. The concept of this system allows for 3 changes using the FeelWet inserts that snap into place inside the training pants. The training pants feature a soft, stretchy cotton on the outside with PUL protection on the inside. They have a nice wide waistband for optimal comfort and gentle elastic around the legs. The FeelWet inserts feature an adorable printed flannel on one side and microfiber on the backside with an additional hidden layer of microfiber. These inserts should provide a decent amount of protection in case of a small accident but the flannel on the FeelWet inserts (which are so adorable!) will allow your child to feel just enough wetness to help them get to the potty. 

The FeelWet Inserts just snap in so easily! Above I have the trainers inside out so you can see what they look like on the inside. There is a flap of PUL in the front and back that you lift up to reveal the other snap for the insert. Just snap it into place and you're good to go! I love that there is a snap on the front and back of these trainers so the inserts stays put. No shifting at all! Similar trainers and cloth diapers that have just one snap and a short flap or pocket just doesn't cut it and are quite fussy. These are functional, easy to assemble and the Best Bottom diaper inserts can be used in the training pants system too if you're already in love with Best Bottom Diapers!

On the left the trainer is turned inside out. The light blue is the cotton and the dark blue is the PUL. As you can see there is no PUL protection on a small portion of each side which cuts down on unnecessary bulk and cost too. On the right is a view of the inside of the training pants with an insert already placed inside. Buddy gets a kick out of the prints! He asks to wear these a lot because he gets to choose the insert. With toddlers it's always about choices so the fun prints are a very clever idea. I think it's also extra incentive for him to remember to make it to the potty in time so he doesn't wet on them!


Here you can see that these are pretty trim on Buddy with the exception of just a little poofiness in the front. It's not bulkiness as a result of too much material though so it doesn't have this appearance under pants. Actually, you can't even tell that these are anything different than regular underwear underneath pants! They seem to have a low rise but since they sit at a natural spot under Buddy's bulging waist they appear to be pretty comfortable and contribute to the trimness. Buddy is 39 pounds, so he's at the end of the size Large we received which goes up to 40 pounds. Knowing this I would say these are true to size. I'm hoping a larger size is in the works since we're at the end of this size and I don't expect them to fit too long.

Although Buddy has not had an accident in these, I can see how easy it would be to just replace the insert without having to pull them all the way off (and his pants too...). This makes it really convenient for times we are using public restrooms or while traveling. There's less to carry since it's just an extra insert and not a whole pair of training pants!

I love this system for many reasons, but one of them is that they are made right here in the USA. Best Bottom Diapers is conscious about supporting our local economy by making their products in the US and also by sourcing as many materials here as possible. Along with the high quality, trim fit and protection offered by this system, I'm also a big fan of the short drying time. The training pants and inserts are actually done drying before the rest of my clothes! This saves me from having to devote extra time to watching my laundry and having to line dry after. I'm really excited about Best Bottom Diapers' Training Pants and love that Nicki from Nicki's Diapers is behind the creation of this fantastic product!

These are so cute and i wish my kids were even CLOSE to potty training. We use the regular best bottoms diapers but my kids are starting to outgrown the shells. Do you think you could use the Large size BB diaper inserts in these trainer pants? I assume the snaps are the same but not sure about the length of the diapers inserts vs the trainer inserts. Thanks so much!!

Anna Claire said...

We're about to enter potty training territory and I've been doing my research on cloth trainers. These look great and economical, also. Plus I love Nicki's. They have fabulous customer service and super-quick shipping; I just placed an order on Thursday and it arrived in the mail today!

amber said...

I love how these can be used for more than one change because my daughter is just starting potty training.

Kristin said...

Having multiple inserts is a fabulous idea. My girls are PLing now and will often tell me when they've just gone. I hate having to change (and wash) the whole pair of pants on the occasions that they're barely wet. It would be great to replace the insert instead. I also like the prints as an incentive to keep them dry.

Ashley Suzanne said...

This is such a cute little set!

Carrie said...

I am just beginning to learn about trainers, and I love the snap-in insert idea so you have less laundry!

Audrey Jensen said...

I love that there are prints for the inserts. I think this will make it easier! We already have to pick between 2 colors of diapers to get a change done!

Melanie Ski said...

I dont have anyone in diapers right now, but I sure love how far the cloth diapers have come with super companies like this!! Designed by moms for moms, can't beat that

Sarah Hull said...

I love how cute these trainers are! I also really like that you can snap in different inserts- genius! This would really be perfect for our son who is almost potty trained, but still has accidents on occasion.

Bekah Kuczenski said...

I like that you could replace the insert without removing the whole trainer!!

Patricia said...

My 2 year old is getting ready to start training and I love this system. I like the inserts and snaps. This is perfect for when we leave the house. I always worry about accidents and carry extant clothescand training wants firvthe oldest one.

Maggie said...

I like that you can pull the insert out...so if it is just pee you have the same shell

Laura M said...

I love how these have super cute inserts. We currently use AI2s for our 13 month old, so I'm already used to replacing inserts instead of the whole diapering system! These would be perfect for him in a couple of months!

Linda said...

My first isn't even born yet, so I'm not even close to potty training, but I love how easy this system is and that everything is washable and reusable, no waste! This will save so much money in the long run.

Meleakua said...

I like that you only have to replace the insert and not the whole pant!

i really like the snap in snap out feature of these trainers. That seems to make them a lot more economical than other options. The imagine newborn all in one is also very intriguing. It seems similar to other newborn all in ones that are double the price!

Feffy11 said...

These are great- they look really trim!

Valerie H said...

They look so trim! I will be looking into getting some when my little guy decides to potty train.

katy w said...

I like less bulk!!

Fiddlin' Dandi said...

I really like how they have a snap in liner.

A Mommy in the UK said...

I love that you can use the inserts from the Best Bottom diapering system with these!

Christine M Tubbytelly said...

I like that you can snap in an insert if you need, that keeps it secure and gives you some leak absorption.

Sara Pearsall said...

I love the functionality of these trainers! Though we would have to wait a little while to use them it would come in so handy for our little girl. And even more worth it to buy since they are made in the US!
