Mr 2 is in the throes of toilet training so I have been able to try training pants. These have been so handy!
Though I was happy for him to wear undies (and clean up any mess) when he was home I was stuck when going out and about.
I was faced with putting him in a nappy again as the school run, errands and long shopping trips meant very few opportunities to take him frequently to the toilet to ensure he did not have an accident in his underwear, and pants, and car seat!
But putting him back in a nappy on him meant he went into automatic pilot and didn’t feel the need to let me know when he wanted to go, or when he had just gone.
The training pants I tried below ensured that I could forgo the nappies but still safely catch any wee’s and poo’s that inevitably occurred when out and about.
Close Training Pants
- Designed to allow toddler to feel wetness
- pull up and down may be tricky for young toddlers
- looks the most like underwear out of the three trainers
- great fit
- waterproof outer layer. Can hold one medium size wee. We had leaking but I suspect it was after two wee’s.
- great size range from 12 months upwards, so great fit for slimmer toddlers.
- Available in two colours
- Ethically made
- Comes in a discounted 5 Pack

Tots Bots Training Pants
Tots Bots have recently released new colours and new features in their Training Pants! The additional features are noted below.
- waterproof outer layer
- sewn in minky soaker that “floats” free meaning quicker drying
- snap to open on sides – especially handy if there is a number 2 accident!
- 3 sizes including a 17+ kg size
- Lots of stretch in the outer fabric
- held wee’s successfully!
- Ethically made
All of these trainers did their job beautifully. I do like the look of the Pop-In trainer as the closest to underwear, and the prints of the Tots Bots are so funky plus they have a very large size too.
