Reusable trainers and training pants

Click here to view our full range of toilet training products.

Just because your child has started toilet training doesn't mean you need to go out and buy disposable pullup nappies. Depending on what stage your child is at and the level of their toilet awareness there are plenty of reusable options available.

If your child is really toilet aware, then the easiest option is to go straight to undies. Some children pick it up really quickly, almost overnight.

For those who are taking a bit longer, or tend to have accidents because something else has priority in their mind at the time, or who need the psychological boost of being out of nappies, but just aren't quite there yet, then have a look at reusable cloth trainers. For us, our little one took longer to catch on to toilet training, so we used undies at home, and used training pants when out and about (even on an interstate trip!). We didn't want to confuse her by using undies sometimes and nappies other times.

Daytime Trainers

We stock several different brands of daytime training pants. All contain some absorbancy, have waterproof outers to protect clothes and furniture, and some can be boosted to hold extra when needed, such as long car trips etc, when you may not have quick access to the toilet.

The Super Undies Pull On Trainers look like undies and pull up and down, just like undies, which littlies love. These are designed to catch one accident, so have some absorbency, but not much - they're not designed to be a nappy! They come in pullup styles so that children can get them on and off themselves easily - a must for success! If your child is a heavy wetter, or if you plan on using these to catch more than this, you may need to boost. You can use a Super Undies Step Up Insert, or a little bamboo booster (that's what I used!). Close Car Seat Protectors also help with this!

We also stock the Close Training pants. Similar to the Super Undies Pull On trainers, these can be pulled up and down, but also have a super slim fit, much like real undies rather than a nappy.

Grovia Trainers also are able to be pulled up and down and snapped at the sides. You can also purchase extra side panels in a larger size if needed. These come with some absorbancy but can be easily be boosted.

Flip Trainers are have organic cotton inserts and can be easily pulled up and down or unsnapped at the sides. The inserts are interchangeable, so you can remove the wet insert, and snap a dry one in very easily. We found these hold a bit more fluid than the Super Undies and Grovia trainers, but they are little bit more 'nappy' like. This makes them great for kids who are just starting to potty train or who are still have regular accidents.

While none of the above trainers are specifically for nighttime, you could use them on a light to medium wetter overnight, just add a booster or two.

Nighttime Trainers & Bedwetting Pants

For those children who are toilet trained during the day but still need something very absorbent overnight, then take a look at nighttime undies or bedwetting pants. These are often in a 'pull up' style and are absorbent enough for night wetting toddlers or older children. Super Undies Bedwetter Pants are a popular option.

Brolly Sheets are also a  fantastic aid for nighttime, and come highly recommended by us. Another useful aid are Car Seat Protectors for self explanatory reasons!

The most important thing you need for successful and stress free toilet training is patience. They'll get there...!
