I am in LOVE with the prints on my daughter’s Imse Vimse cloth training pants and am so excited to show you the features of the trainer and talk about how it worked on my little one.
Let me first tell you a little bit about it…
The trainer is made out of FOUR layers:
Layer 1 (outer layer) 100% organic cotton knit
Layer 2: organic cotton terry
Layer 3: PUL
Layer 4: organic cotton terry
Here is a picture of what it looks like turned inside out:
I found that the absorbency of this was OK, just enough for daytime, but not for nap time. In fact, Imse Vimse indicates that you should add an extra booster for nap time.
The trainer comes in 5 sizes. This is the sizing chart from imsevimse.com:
|L||Large||20-26 lbs / 9-12 kg|
|XL||Extra Large||24-31 lbs / 11-14 kg|
|SL||Super Large||28-37 lbs / 13-17 kg|
|JR||Junior||35-44 lbs / 16-20 kg|
|JR+||Junior Plus||41-54 lbs / 19-25 kg|
The outside features various cute prints. I really liked that this was a waterproof trainer, but that there are still cute prints. However, I did find that the outside would get wet if she had an accident, but it did at least have some PUL to keep it from getting too much all over the place.
There is a soft, but flexible binding on the legs and waist that gives the training pantsa fit that makes the trainer look very much like underwear.
These trainers are made in Europe.
My Overall Comments:
I am a huge fan of the trimness and fit of these. These are around the house favorite. My daughter loves her “princess choonies” and they are easy for us to deal with. I do wish they had side snaps, to make it easier if she pooped in it (otherwise I risk getting poop on her legs while pulling it off). It was absorbent at first, but as she became a heavier wetter, the absorbency got worse.
I tried this on my 2 1/2 year old for quite some time. She was roughly 22-25 pounds when using this and is a heavy wetter.
