How exciting is potty training? In our house, it’s about right up there with paint drying. In fact, I think paint is drying faster! However, trying out new cloth trainers IS exciting!
Jack Be Natural, one of my blog sponsors this month, sent me a GroVia® My Choice Trainer to test out. My son loved wearing it around the yard especially!
Several features I like include the ability to change out the Side-Flex panels to get a custom fit (both in colors and sizing!). Mine came with regular panels, which are rated to fit 18-35 pounds. So this seems like an ideal trainer for moms who are doing EC or have little ones that are ready for potty training early.
My son is 27 pounds, and I thought the trainer was a bit snug on my son for sliding on/off like underwear. It was easier to unsnap and put the trainers on him more like a diaper. But he’s several pounds away from the PLUS size panel weight, so maybe the snug fit is correct. Either way, I can use these regular-sized panels for now, and if they grow too snug, it’s easy to order the Plus size panels to add room! I like that about this trainer – that I won’t need to buy a whole new trainer just because he grows!
The trim fit on the GroVia My Choice is fantastic. I really like how they look close to real underwear, which I think is important for kids to see a difference between their diaper and the trainer-to-underwear transition.
There’s a little absorbency sewn in, with a GroCool layer so toddlers can feel the wetness. But there’s also a pocket opening so you can stuff a little more absorbency in there too – perfect for nights and naptime for that child who is just about trained but might have an accident. The outer layer is Waterproof TPU – and like other GroVia products I’ve tried and seen, it’s heavy duty for durability.
All in all, I like this trainer for its high quality construction and the many features it provides. I just can’t wait till my son actually starts using the potty while wearing it!
