GroVia recently introduced their new My Choice Trainer that brings a washable option and alternative to Pull-Ups when your child is learning to use the potty. The trainers include great features such as a hidden pocket so you can add extra absorbency to the built-in soaker, rise snaps for a great fit, waterproof TPU outer, and GroCool inner layer of fabric that lets your child feel when they have wet to helps with potty training. My Choice Trainers also have a selection of additional side panels that you can purchase in 6 colors to make a fun and stylish diapers. By switching out the panels to the plus sized panels, you can extend the life of the trainers for a older child as well.
I had been looking for some trainers to use with my 20 month old who has been very interested in the potty and in the early stages ready to start potty training. I wanted something that would be a bit easier for him to be able to pull off himself and that would also let him feel that he was wet. The GroVia My Choice Trainers are really cute and really easy to use. They have a built-in hemp/cotton soaker that easily holds one missed potty trip. The snap rise makes these fit great on my 20 month old.
My youngest was already interested in potty training before the trainers arrived and we had set him on the toilet a few times to get him comfortable with the potty. We had yet to start full time training, though, and it was fun to start when the trainers arrived. The My Choice Trainers were harder for him to pull off and down then just plain underwear, but he still could do it himself. When we didn’t make it to the potty in time, they were great at making him a bit uncomfortable and he would come to tell me “potty!” so I could change him and take him to the bathroom. We’ve made great progress potty training and have now been using the My Choice Trainers mainly for naps to keep the bed dry. They don’t have enough absorption for overnight use with a child that might still have more than one potty through the night without adding extra absorption, though. This isn’t a problem since you can stuff in extra inserts if you’re looking to use these trainers for night time use. I used them overnight with my 3.5 year old who was still relying on pull-ups with nearly nightly accidents. They work great on him overnight without adding extra inserts as he doesn’t have more than one overnight potty. They have definitely helped my 3.5 year old recognize his nighttime potties and he has been waking up dry almost every morning since!
