I am looking for cheaper trainers for my 2 year old. He is tall & skinny with average to skinny thighs. He weighs 28 pounds & has a low rise.

Here is what I have tried:
* flips - didnt care for the way the cover for & how the rise snaps came undo when you pulled them down. The inserts are nice though. Prefer cotton.
* grovia - liked the idea of these but a little narrow in the butt even on a skinny kid. Just expensive to buy a bunch.
* gerber - these are easy up & down & soft cotton but don't contain any messes.

I would like to find something not expensive, would be great to have a waterproof option but not opposed to an additional layer of "plastic pants". Would prefer cotton & something that fits my skinny guy. Don't care for pockets but wouldn't be a deal breaker.

The blueberry ones look nice but too expensive. Same with the fuzzibunz.

How are the happy Heiny ones? Pockets right? :(

Checking into some Scotty pottys too since they have waterproof option.

Also what about imes vimes & ecoposh? They look cozy for at home.

Anyone tried the gerber plastic pants over cotton undies for trips outside the house?

Thanks!

Bummis has a new "plastic pants" that are supposed to be awesome. And did you check Blueberry's clearance? I think they have some right now... :)

I see bummis trainers but not pure plastics pants. Will check clearance. Blueberry worth the price? Hold an accident?.

Blueberry trainers will absorb a light accident, but will be wet on the outside. More absorbant than Gerber trainers, but definitely not waterproof.

I have been trying a bunch of trainers and so far the best ones I've had are some WAHM and trimsie trainers. They are pull up style with snaps and we are loving them!

I also really like blueberry but they are pricey!!

I really like Imse Vimse trainers, but if you think the Blueberry trainers are too expensive, they are even more so. The fit of the Imse Vimse trainers is better than that of the other trainers I've tried, and I find they hold an entire pee without puddling. The PUL (which is only in the wet zone, iirc) only keeps pants dry if it's a small or partial accident.

We love our Blueberry trainers! It holds quite a bit but the outer will get wet. We didn't care for the Best Bottom trainers. Have considered the Imse Vimse and Little Beetle but local diaper store didn't have any in stock at the time.
