Flip Training Pants ?

Will Flip Trainers fit my 30", 21lb, 16 month DD? She wears size 12 month pants in Carters (18m will probably stay up with minimal pulling up) & 12-18 month in Gymboree (both with Gerber trainers).

What stage of PTing are Flips best for (beginner with big accidents, medium accidents, or just a tiny trickle)? I'm ok with pants getting wet if a large accident happens I just don't want a puddle on the floor at public locations & need something waterproof when we first transition at DC.

Any other suggestions are welcome but I am looking for something that can arrive quickly (no customs) & isn't too expensive. I have a pair of Blueberry trainers OTW to try as I've heard good things but they are on the expensive side for me at $15.95/pair.

The waist is Still big for my 2 yo. My only complaint with the Flip trainer is the waist size. Fine in rise (he's on med rise) but waist is too big, even in largest setting. Once prepped, they are very absorbent.

I don't think they will fit. If GroVia is an option, they have a smaller waist.

Flip fell off my DD when she was 28 pounds.

The GroVias will definitely fit. They get tiny. And they work well for real accidents. We used them (with boosters) for overnight.

They leaked badly for us, as did Grovia. I'd suggest Tinkle Time Trainers by Rainshine Designs or Ladder Hill designs.

We've decided to do water resistant trainers (Imse Vimse), under wool longies... So it's more like real underwear under real pants.
