These aren't the most absorbent training pants (which is a pro and a con). We want the kiddo to be aware of his wetness...but he literally peed through the pants, down his leg, through his socks, and his shoes onto the floor in one wetting while wearing these (just after a failed potty trip, of course). If your tot has super-soaker tendencies, be very vigilant if they're wearing these. We've had to do a lot of laundry lately. These also don't hold soft BMs well. And they chafe around the legs when kiddo is active. We're contemplating either other training pants or a different potty training approach. This is not working out for us.
