Cheap option that works.

Comments about Gerber Vinyl Pants (3 Packs) Diapers:

I use these over cloth diapers and they work. They are cheap, compared to buying the expensive cloth diapers or disposables. I've never once had a leak, and my daughter is 9 months now. I've also never had one rip or the elastic go bad (though the edge does fray). They are a cheap plastic feeling material but the baby is comfortable. Two big negatives are that they are loud, and they shrink in the wash. When my baby rolls over you can hear the crinkle a room away, that's how stiff and loud the material is. I also have to buy several sizes larger than recommended (and my baby is Small). Right now she's on the 12-18 month because they shrink so badly when they are washed.

The new and improved Vinyl pants are trash

By 

from Minoa, NY

Comments about Gerber Vinyl Pants (3 Packs) Diapers:

I am starting to potty train my youngest daughter and was looking for the vinyl training pants. I knew that Gerber had a good product so I purchased these. I got them home opened the package and was very disappointed from that minute on. The sizing was definitely very wrong. I purchased a 2t and although I am a tiny mom I think that I could have worn them. They were HUGE! The next disappointment was the noise. The new PEVA material that they are made with is so loud. It sounds like you are wearing a plastic grocery bag. I immediately put them back in the package and returned them for a refund. I was very disappointed and let a few other moms who are starting to potty train to stay clear of this product. I am now on the search for the "old fashioned" style vinyl training pants that go over the underwear. Hopefully I will be satisfied with those.

Gerber Vinyl Pants aren't worth the try.

By 

from White House, TN

Comments about Gerber Vinyl Pants (3 Packs) Diapers:

I made the mistake of buying a pack of the Gerber vinyl pants for my son to have as a back up cover for his cloth diapers.  I ended up throwing all of them away shortly after buying them.  They are made of a terrible material that does not allow for any air circulation.  If left on too long I'm sure they would lead to diaper rashes.  The elastic on the legs and waist always cut into the skin and left red marks on his skin.  They were very bulky and it was hard to put clothes over them, especially something like pants or shorts.  They could not be used for multiple changes no matter what.  They did not hold up at all when washed.  After only two or three washings they all had a tear of at last 1 1/2 inches in them, and for the life of me I don't know what was in the wash that would have torn them.  I wouldn't waste my money on these again, even considering them as a back up.  Your money is better spent on one good cover instead.

Better than expected

Comments about Gerber Vinyl Pants (3 Packs) Diapers:

I am in the stage with my son where he is 2 and can go in the toilet. So I am frustrated putting on diapers all the time. These vinyl pants with the gerber training pants -- aka "underwear" for him -- do a surprisingly good job of keeping his leaks in. Once there was even a puddle IN the pants so I had to take them off in the bathtub to catch the flow! The elatic around the legs is tight fitting enough to prevent clothing wicking moisture in or out of the pants but not so tight as to be uncomfortable. The pants themselves are very baggy, but that is probably a throwback to cloth diapers --necessitating the extra roominess in the rear.

We have had an "accident" while we were out of the house and without a change of pants (or a diaper) and they "held" surpisingly well until we got home. (whew!)

I recommend using these over disposable pull-up type trainers to save money. It is a little trickier to change because the pants have to be pulled down whether it's dry, wet or soiled and there is sometimes a mess, but if you're trying to stop buying diapers and pull-ups this will help in your efforts. 

They seem to last pretty well. Just don't put them in the dryer I imagine.

Now, if we could only get him to tell me beforehand instead of after these events.
