cloth training pants?

I have b/g twins that I am potty training. I have the gerber training pants with plastic covers. What do cloth diapering mamas use when potty training?
Thanks

I've been using gerber trainers undies and putting a flip or other cover over. works great for us and saves on the moolah! I just use my regular cloth at night and nap times.

This may not be a popular answer (or maybe it will be, who knows?). . . I let my little one run around the house with a bare bottom. Hey-- it was just us at home and we have hard wood floors, which clean up very easily! She only wet herself once and was very unhappy about it. After that, she was all about using the potty!

Having said that, I *knew* that she was ready. She had been using the potty for "fun" for awhile. I just didn't get determined about potty training until summer / vacation was over. As soon as we got back on our regular school year schedule with big sis and I could focus on the little one at home, it was a cinch. I had to give her my full attention, watch for signals, and take her to the bathroom at least once every two hours to "try."

That's actually a Very popular Answer. A lot of mama's have their LO's go bare bummed because without the feel of something touching their bums they become very aware of a difference. A few days of going bare and using the potty before using any kind of underpants usually helps jump start the process

Once they get the hang of going when they have the urge, I like Imse Vimse trainers.

My DD isn't ready to potty train (17 months, and not ready!)...but her preschool makes her wear waterproof pull-ups, so we use antsy pants and love them! They are pretty pricey, so we only use them for school, and at home she runs around naked, or wears diapers/blueberries. Her happy heiney trainers were too snug around the legs for her, but those seem to be good, too. Less expensive, but ad a little more bulk. Good luck in finding which ones work for you!

Krista, didnt know that! How much are they? Reuseable trainers seem to be even more expensive than pockets, especially if you have to buy them new.

It looks like you can get a set of 1 trainer & 5 inserts for $24...does that seem average? My ds is only 16mo so I haven't had to look into that yet!
