inexpensive cloth training pant?

I'm looking for recommendations for an inexpensive waterproof cloth training pant to try. Everything I find is SO expensive! I'm not wanting to spend a lot since *hopefully* we won't need to use them too long. I've got some Gerber training pants but really need something waterproof. I tried the Gerber plastic covers over them and they leak like crazy.

They are probably leaking bc the Gerber padded undies aren't very absorbent at all. I bet if you tried a more absorbent trainer (if you have any on hand that can hold just 1 pee accident) the Gerber covers over those would work.

Re: inexpensive cloth training pant?

I'm trying gerber undies with added flannel and pul in the wet zone. we'll see how they do. when i bought my gerbers at buy buy baby, they had dappi covers and training pants with waterproof outer i think they were 2 for 10 and there's a 5 off 15 available, so pretty good price. i'm gonna pick up a pack if the altered gerbers don't do the trick!

Yes they are padded and waterproof, they will leak. But will hold a a pee briefly. Better than gerber for sure, alot better than blueberry too. I bought a ton of different trainers and gave them all a try.mwe havnt started potty training yet, not till monday, inam using gerber and luvable friends for home, and charlie for out and about. Thats the plan. Good luck with urs!

Re: inexpensive cloth training pant?

just a quick update, the gerber pants with 2 layers of flannel with PUL in "wetzone" keep my DD dry. the area that doesn't have PUL gets wet, and leg casings, but we're going pantless at home right now, so it's great. If she's gone a long time and drinks alot, she may get a little puddle, but that's all and she loves the prints!

Re: inexpensive cloth training pant?

I added a insert to my DD's gerbers I put a snap on them to keep it in place and then used fleece soaker/pants over the top.
