Side-snapping fitteds or AIOs as trainers?

Does anyone have any experience using fitteds or large AIOs as trainers? With side-snapping, it seems they could be pulled up and down, but I am not sure. How did they work, how many would you recommend, and any recommendations on brands? Thanks!

We used Sandys as our trainers. They worked awesome. We used them cover less when home and then with fleece or wool for other times.

We sized down and used the smalls until he potty learned at about 25 pounds.

Loved them.

I have used GroVia AI2s and Bright Star Baby AIOs as pull-on dipes. Just snap a little looser than normal.

I'm going to buy some Swaddlebees Simplex for out and about as trainers, and at home I have Sandys. The Sandys are great and easy to pull up and down. I'm only getting some Simplex because I wanted an aio type diaper/pull up for daycare.

I really liked the side-snapping Knickernappies diapers as trainers. They're generously sized and are easy to pull up and down like trainers. They worked great for my twin sons.

DD can pull up and down her sized Simplex. If she ever decides to use the potty (sigh), we'll use them.

Thanks for the suggestions! I am very excited that these would be multi-functional.
