Tell me all about Happy Heiny pullup trainers!

Do they work well? Sizing/fit? Does the FOE wick or chafe? I just noticed these online today and love their color selection! Tell me more!

Re: Tell me all about Happy Heiny pullup trainers!

I tried these (assuming you mean the pocket trainers) for my son, and returned them the moment I saw them, and was even more convinced to return them when I tried them on him. They were horribly poofy and fit awful. Any insert would have been swimming all over the place in them. Construction was fine, the FOE seemed soft, and the sizing ran really big.

pics...in case you are interested

Eek! That's EXACTLY what I was wondering about bc that fit seems to be common with alot of trainers I've seen. Def not buying those! Any idea what brands will fit and work better? I WAS interested in superundies til I saw there is a layer of microfiber sewn in.... ds is terribly allergic to that stuff even without direct contact

You may want to try Bunnyfeet Boutique. I've never tried HH, but they look similar to the pictures only there are snaps on the sides so they fit longer. I like them a lot and they don't poof up like the pp pics.

Happy Heinys run big, so it's good to order a size down. Then they won't be quite as poofy. Okay, they're poofy still, but they *work*. Great for heavy setters overnight when other trainers might not make it. Trimmer ones: Imse Vimse, Flip trainers, Ecoposh.

I actually use the happy heinys size large on my 8 year old dd at night ~ they fit fine, so sizes do run large. I am able to stuff enough to contain her bedwetting accidents with no problem.

I think a poofy cloth trainer is a good thing, because it ensures the child can easily pull them on and off by themselves.
