Great transition from pull ups to panties!

Profile Image

By 

from Florida

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

I bought these for my niece when she was ready to start wearing panties. I thought that the thicker material would be an easier transition from pull ups to panties. She liked that she had "big girl" panties on and I liked being done changing diapers and pull ups whenever I babysat her.

They are more absorbent than regular underwear. They aren't a long term underwear for kids to wear once they are accident free but they do help your child get more accustomed to the feel of fabric instead of plasticky diapers or pull ups.

They aren't as cheap as regular underwear, but they do come in a multi pack, and you probably don't need to buy more than one multi-pack. We bought two, one to keep at my house and one to keep at my niece's house. They are durable and withstand messes, accidents and many many washes.

I would recommend this to mothers and fathers who are looking for something that is in between pull ups and panties when potty training their kids.

Great for daytime potty training

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

Gerber Cotton Training Pants are a great addition to my son's potty training supplies. He has been potty training for a few months now and I really like these training pants because of the thick, absorbent cotton material. These feel and look like real underwear but they are much thicker and contain the urine if he has a minor accident. I really like how well these fit around my son's legs. There is just a small gap between the leg openings of the training pants and his thighs. The biggest struggle my son has with potty training is getting to the bathroom in enough time. He will usually urinate a little and then realize that he has to pee. These Gerber training pants have saved my furniture countless times from getting soaked with urine. My son pees just a little and can usually make it to the bathroom. These training pants are not an absorbent as a diaper, but they do the job to contain smaller accidents.

Gerber cotton training pants are a great underwear for toddlers.

By 

from Lexington, MO

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

Gerber cotton training pants are a great choice for a toddlers first underwear. So many underwear for little kids and toddlers are so paper thin that if they have accidents, it does absolutely nothing to help. These are made of a thicker cotton and the middle section has an extra padding of material to help with any accidents. Now this is not going to replace a diaper if there is a major accident, but it will help minimize the mess and embarrassment. We use pull-ups for a long time, but I got frustrated with how much money I was wasting on them. These are a great alternative and can be washed and reused. They are a little bit more expensive than normal toddler underwear, but at least I won't be throwing them away and wasting money like pull-ups or diapers. They are made of a soft fabric and my daughter says that they are comfortable. They come in cute designs or just plain white. I would recommend giving them a shot.

Cotton Training Underpants

Profile Image

By 

from Eagle River, AK

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

My granddaughter is in the process of getting potty trained, and she is doing fairly well with the number one, but not the number two, if you get my drift. Since my daughter is on a tight budget, I suggested she use cotton training pants instead of expensive disposable Pull Ups. She didn't buy any so I got some for her.

When I opened the package of Gerber Cotton Training Pants I was disappointed that the crotch area wasn't as thick as they used to be when I potty trained my daughter 28 years ago. They were about half as thick.

These fit my granddaughter okay, but she is skinny and the legs are a little loose. The Pull Ups fit her better since there is elastic in the legs. I like the fact that these are cotton and can be washed and dried and reused. However, they simply don't have a thick enough crotch to hold any leaks that happen. I've seen much better alternatives on the market today.

Absorbency
The crotch isn't nearly as thick as it was 28 years ago when I first used these.

Comfort
Okay comfort, but the legs are too large for my skinny granddaughter.

Leak Prevention
The crotch is too thin and leaks do happen.

Best "REAL" training pants EVER

By 

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

I love these training pants! My mom used these on me when I was younger and I guess they brought them back because when my daughter started potty training at 16 months I bought these for her! These are the REAL deal! To me all the other "training pants" are diapers with a little extra padding, if that and a higher price tag. My daughter cannot tell the difference between Pull - Ups, Easy - Ups, or diapers. When she began training with the greber training panties though, she noticed that they looked like Mommy's panties, and you can tell an obvious difference in the feel as well. They are more padded than regular underwear definitely, but if my daughter has an accident she knows for sure too! If feels a lot different! She can pull them up and down by herself now, at 20 months. She will wears these as panties too for a while because of the extra padding there is a little extra protection when it comes to accidents! I know some other reviewers don't like them, but that's because they are NOT diaper like at all! I love them and if you really want to kick start potty training, it's a great way to go... I just wish there were more patterns. They have a white package, a boy package, and a girl package... I would love it if they would make Dora or Elmo or something, but that's not a big deal at all in the big scheme of things!

training pants should be absorbant

By 

from Romulus, MI

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

My son when he was only 12 months old urinated straight through these gerber cotton training pants, you coud actually see the stream flowing right out of them like they were regular cotton underwear. The Gerber cotton training pants didn't absorb like training pants should! I cloth diaper so I do know you need to wash them a few times before they get to the full absorption potential. I did the prep washes just like with cloth diapers with no success. I expected more fro gerber and am very disappointed that the gerber training pant's did not save my carpet floor furniture from getting soaked. Since my experience with these gerber cloth training pants I have stuck with side snapping fitted diapers which also have no protective barrier but absorb effectively. My son can even wear the fitteds with fleece pajamas overnight and his bedding doesn't end up wet in the morning. Unless you plan on using those plastic pants over the gerber training pant's don't waist your money they don't absorb even one urination.

Essential to training.

By 

from Edmond, OK

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

These are durable. I bought them with my first child and they still have life in them. They are not very absorbent but they do contain most of the leak and stop a puddle from forming on the floor. Better, I use the vinyl pants over them so they really don't leak much at all.

I use these as a money saver over the disposable pull-up. For my purpose, it does keep me from using as many so it saves me money. Especially at home where I know I can usually run to the bathroom during potty training they are just as easy to pull up and down!

Besides the money factor, I believe that the use of cloth might help kids potty train easier and faster because with disposable diapers kids get used to peeing and pooping in them and they have a hard time switching gears. These serve as an in between and help the child recognize what is going on.

Besides these plain white ones they also come in patterns designed for boys or girls.

These gerber "Training Pants" are underwear for pete's sake!!!

By 

from Belgium, WI

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

These are just as good as any underwear for your child.  The additional price tag on them is silly.  It's only there due to the fact that they are gerber.  These are great, don't get me wrong, but no better and/or worse than the rest.

They're stuffed with poly fill, which is not absorbent

By 

from Reed City, MI

Comments about Gerber Cotton Training Pants:

I would not recommend these training pants. The material inside the crotch area is a polyester fiberfill. It adds fluffiness, but is not absorbent!

On the positive side, these are easy to pull on and off and they have two layers of cotton in the crotch. It's just that the stuffing is worthless.

Instead I like the terrycloth pants from my local variety store. They have a couple layers of terry in the wetting area and therefore are more absorbent.
