I was sent a pair of Sprout Change training pants to review. They are similar to cloth diapers except that they work like pull-ups. Your potty training child can easily pull them up and down and you can unsnap the sides to change your child if there is an accident (So much easier than underwear!).
I like these training pants because they are really absorbant and waterproof. You don't have to worry about wet car seats or messy leaks when you are out and about. I did notice my son was sweaty in them the other day, but it was in the high 90's and he had been playing hard. They are probably hotter than underwear, but not any hotter than cloth diapers. My little guy loves wearing them. He refers to them as his training pants and feels like such a big boy in them.
We have been potty training for a long time, about a year. I read somewhere that the average length of potty training time for boys is 10 months. I hate to think of how much money I have spent on disposable pull-ups. Buying a few of these training pants is an investment up front, but will save a lot of money and landfill space in the long run. The Willow Pads website says, "
If you are looking for an easy pant to use for potty training this is it. I love the way they open at the sides for easy changing. (There will be accidents.) I wish I would have known about these pants a year ago. Since these are waterproof, my son could have worn these pants to preschool instead of having to wear pull-ups, thus saving us a lot of money.
