Not wet on the outside and can hold a LOT
on August 27, 2012
I have twin girls that are 4 and well past training--but I learned a valuable lesson in how wasteful it is to buy disposable pull-ups. Since I let my kids slip into my bed I do NOT want accidents, nor do I want to sleep on a plastic cover over my matress. I am not a believer in reusing disposables even if they are not soiled...how is that different than using used underwear? Anyway, since I used the disposable ones for a long time after training (just at night and "just in case") I wanted to buy reusables for my third child. She is just 2 and just beginning to train so I decided to invest in some reusable trainers.
I read a lot of reviews and I bought the Potty Patty's for the day and four of the Antsy Pants for nighttime use. Seriously, I must say that the Potty Patty's can hold a large pee but they are WET on the outside, period!!! Not what I want!!! I wish I hadn't bought them. I decided since they were only $10 a pair that I would buy 5 to start. Well, I have used them and thankfully they FEEL so wet on my daughter that she complains immediately--a good thing, right? since I have a GIRL and she wears dresses, I don't have the issue with wet pants. Because of this, I am using these but ONLY at home.
Now, for the Antsy Pants. They have two openings for up to two inserts. THere is a "nighttime" or "nap" time insert that can be used. You can double up on the night ones if you have a heavy wetter, especially at night. Plus and Minus--they don't feel that wet on the inside and sometimes I even have trouble telling if they are wet. The best thing though, is that there is a waterproof layer on the outside and it does not (or has not yet for me) left any wetness on the outside...even better than the Pamper's Cruisers! No residue, at all with the AP!!!
Since I am not a fan of messes--I purchased a roll of large liners--they are like $6-$8 for a roll of 100 liners and when there is a poopy mess, I just flush that biodegradable liner down the toilet and there is none to very little poop on the pull-up.
I am a HUGE fan of these. I will not try any other ones. I read where someone wrote they are hard to use...UMMMMMMM not sure how that is possible. They are simple and I did not read any instructions...simple enough to figure out on my own.
If you are looking for a trainer--and it can be used as a diaper as well, I wouldn't look any further. Also, they are true to size. I have a big girl and am always worried about things being too small--but these fit PERFECT!!!. Good luck and happy training!
