Cloth diaper giveaway event!

 

Welcome to day one of 30 Days of Dipes! Today is sponsored by:

I will be reviewing and giving away a Fuzzibunz Trickle Free Trainer. Make sure you also check out Lori from The Gnome’s Moms review of the Fuzzibunz Elite and Jen from Life With Levi’s review of the Fuzzibunz Diaper Talk diaper!

The Dirty Details:

A little background: My twins have just turned 3 and one of them, Wyatt, has become completely obsessed with sitting on the potty. Of course we were ecstatic, considering he has autism and we thought potty training was far off in the future. I jumped at the chance to try out the Trickle Free Trainer, even though I knew it was a long shot. Because we are still pretty much on the fringe of actually potty training, I am going to rate this to the best of my ability based on what we have been able to see so far.

Daytime Use: 4 Bums Up

Overnight Use: N/A

Ease of Use: 5 Bums Up

Quality: 5 Bums Up

Overall: 4.6* Bums Up

*Overall score based on Daytime Use, Ease of Use and Quality.

Daytime Use: I gave the Fuzzibunz Trickle Free Trainer 4 Bums Up for daytime use. It has enough absorbancy to stop any major leakage issues, but it still allows them to feel enough wetness so they know when they go (hopefully reinforcing the need to hit the potty chair first).

Overnight Use: Because we are really just sitting on the potty chair (we have yet to have any actual success) we haven’t attempted to go overnight. My suspicions are that unless your child is already holding it all night (or getting up to use the potty) this would probably need some extra inserts added to get through the night.

Ease of Use: I give the Trickle Free Trainer 5 Bums Up. This has proven again and again to be easy for my toddler to pull up and down. (And in typical Wyatt fashion, he takes every chance he can get to show us too!)  The side snaps make dealing with accidents a breeze.

Quality: The Fuzzibunz Trickle Free Trainer earns 5 Bums Up for quality. It doesn’t have any parts that need replacing, no elastic to adjust, the snaps are big and sturdy. I feel like this could last through a couple of kids with no problems at all.

Overall: I think this is a great pair of training pants. There is plenty of room to add an insert in the early days for when you are just on the fringe of diving into training and plenty of absorbancy for the accidents that happen when you are in the thick of training. They are easy enough for a toddler to navigate without much coaxing and they are about as cute as they come.

An extra added bonus for me is that Fuzzibunz supports Autism Speaks.  Having two kids with Autism, I never get tired of seeing those words in connection with companies whose products I use and love.

Buy It!

    I tend to just let the child lead the way, and we often go straight to big boy underwear. My son is 3.5 right now and not showing much interest though, so we may be about to attempt a "potty training boot camp" type weekend with a major potty training focus and lots of prizes to see if I can get him motivated! ~Melissa

    Generally I've been pretty laid-back but we get really excited around here when there's a success or a milestone. We had a "Bye Bye Diapers" party with a cupcake and gifts – a "big kid" board game and some new underwear – to usher in the age of potty training here.

    Emmaline is only 13 months so we're not really potty training yet. We have a little potty for her and I put her on it before bed every evening after she's had some diaper-free time around the house. She's never actually done anything on the potty but she likes sitting on it : ) I plan on just following her lead on it. She doesn't like it when she pees on herself when she's naked so I assume she'll figure it out sooner or later!

    My daughter is in the midst of potty training but waits until the very last minute to go, and then wets herself. I would love to try this with her!

    Good to stumble upon something you can use in your own set of circumstances. Goodo!

    I have a 13 month old boy and haven't started training yet. I plan on following his lead and waiting until he is ready!

    "child-led" for us — although we haven't even started thinking about it just yet (LO is 6 months!)

  10. 10 Tara Sutton said at 11:46 am on January 3rd, 2012:

    I'm letting Fuss lead the way on this one! She is showing interest, but doesn't quite "get it" at this point. She's 20 months and we'll be working on PT'ing slowly.

  11. 11 Danea T. said at 2:18 pm on January 4th, 2012:

    It was child-led for my older daughter who trained herself at 18m. I wasn't remotely ready except for the fact I had bought a potty chair from a friend and had left it in our living room. She just sat on it one day and that was it so we went to big girl panties a week later and she was day trained. My son is currently 17m and likes sitting on the potty chair but hasn't shown as much interest yet besides flushing toilets 😛

  12. 12 Amy said at 2:09 pm on January 5th, 2012:

    It's been mostly child-led for our boy. He started to become really interested in the potty when he was 18-months old. From then on he's always been able to sit on the potty and pee. Eventually, he started to let us know when he was peeing or pooping in his diaper. Then we started to have him help flush the poops at diaper changes. The big break through was at about 30 months when we babysat an older friend who was more advanced in using the potty. His example helped our guy somehow figure it out and he made the leap to going to the potty when his bladder felt full so he could stay dry. Still hasn't figured out how to poo sitting on the potty, but I guess that'll come on it's own.

    My son slightly shows interest but haven't really started potty training him yet. I want to wait until he shows more interest before we begin.

    This looks fab, and would be great for our almost-ready-to-try-it little one.

    I actually wrote a blog post about how we had our daughter trained by 20 months. Check it out! I hope it helps someone! http://stuffparentsneed.com/2011/07/the-answer-to

    My daughter is not PLing yet, but I plan on child led training.

    I have always let the child show interest before starting the potty because to try to beforehand is a waste!
