MOM Innovations is a wholesale distributor of everything potty training, including the awesome products from Potty Patty and Potty Scotty (cute names for girl's and boy's potty training products and the dolls that go along with them!). It seemed that every potty training search I did came up with some kind of product from Potty Patty or Potty Scotty. The particular items I was very interested in were the different types of waterproof training pants. EG's pediatrician suggested that we skip the disposable training pants and go straight to cloth in order to avoid prolonging the process (as disposables are said to do) of potty training. I didn't feel comfortable going to straight to cloth and, honestly, I just don't have the time right now to wash the sheets and car seat every night, and I certainly didn't want to get frustrated with EG if she had an accident. After a lot of searching I found some awesome Potty Patty training pants at MOM Innovations, and they were generous to provide me several pairs to try out and review. I was able to try the 2 in 1 Waterproof PUL Training Pants and the Night Time Waterproof Training Pants. I was most impressed with both types! Both types of pants were cloth, but waterproof to contain little accidents. The best of both worlds! I have to say that I was a little skeptical that I would find a cloth training pant that was indeed waterproof, comfortable for EG to wear, BREATHABLE (my poor little girl is hot-natured like her Daddy), and affordable enough to buy several pairs. The PUL and Night Time Training Pants both fit the bill perfectly! The waterproof PUL is the secret ingredient to both pairs being waterproof. Here is a description of exactly what the PUL fabric is:
"Waterproof "PUL" (Polyurethane Laminate) is a soft, polyester knit fabric laminated with polyurethane on the inside, so the training pants have the feel of a soft polyester knit fabric where one would touch the training pants, but are 100% waterproof on the inside."
The 2 in 1 Waterproof PUL Potty Patty daytime training pants are, first of all, so cute with the pink Potty Patty logo (don't worry moms of boys...there are Potty Scotty versions too!) and "big kid" motivating phrases like "I am a big kid now" and "I am all grown up". Too cute! But, not only are they adorable, they were so soft and comfortable for EG to wear. The legs were not too tight (as was the case on another name brand pair that we did not like!) and did not leave red marks around EG's little baby thighs. Also, the fabric was very soft and more breathable than anything I could have ever imagined being waterproof. They were also just the right thickness so that they were not too bulky under EG's clothes. But, most importantly, the PUL waterproof fabric and extra padding in the crotch area did indeed keep accidents at bay! Hooray! EG still has quite a few accidents as she is still learning, and these training pants have made the process so much less stressful for us! At $8.95 a pair they are also a better deal than any other mass produced training pants I have been able to find. The pants we tried first (which sent us on a hunt for a better pair!) were $14 a pair. They held in accidents great, but were too tight on her legs and way too bulky. I'm so glad that I was able to try out these Potty Patty training pants from MOM Innovations. They have truly been a lifesaver and I would recommend them to anyone trying to potty train little ones!
As for the gender neutral Night Time Pants, I am still in love! These are the same for boys and girls (whereas most other products have a Potty Patty and Potty Scotty version). They are adjustable for a perfect fit, and have a little more padding than the daytime pants. The inside is an extra absorbent terry fabric that is also unbelievably soft. The crotch area also has extra padding as with the regular training pants. I felt like these were so comfortable for EG to sleep in, and they also held in accidents well. EG is still really learning the overnight training, as we have not focused too much on that. Usually we let her wear a Pull-Up to sleep in (bad mommy!), but we tried these pants and loved them. A couple nights we used them, she had more than just a little accident, and they leaked through the leg hole. But, it was no big deal and, like I said, it was more than just a little accident. I think we will definitely be using these night time pants more and more, and again, I would recommend them to anyone. In fact, after having tried these two products from MOM Innovations, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of the other Potty Patty or Potty Scotty products!
