I was sent a pair of these super functional Bambino Mio training pants for review, imported from England.  They're fabulous!  Here are some specs on the product itself:

  • Cotton blend with waterproof layer and inner pad for super absorbency
  • The waterproof layer allows toddlers to feel wetness while minimizing accidents
  • Machine washable
  • Available in 3 sizes:
11-13 kgs (24-29 lbs)
13-16 kgs (29-35 lbs)
16+ (35lbs+)
  • Available in White, Pink and Blue

 My Thoughts:
Potty training my daughter has been an ongoing process, and it can be difficult to work on training her while still going about our regular daily lives.  While I love the benefits of using cloth training pants; helping kids to "feel" wet, avoiding the ridiculous cost of disposables, and added comfort for the child, I've often found them to be incredibly messy.  Taking D out of the house often meant putting her back in a diaper, which she will almost always fiercely protest!  (I take that as a good sign.)  These Bambino Mio training pants have a waterproof lining, and I love that even though they are not overly bulky, they're still very absorbent!  They have a super soft inner and outer layer, so they feel much better than a paper training pant.  They're also very easy to pull on and off, with the elastic waist and a loose enough fit to make them easy for a toddler to manage on their own.  These are some of the best training pants we've tried.  D can run around comfortably, and I can be relaxed in knowing that if she DOES have an accident, her pants will most likely remain dry and cleaning her up will be a quick and easy process.
