What do y'all like for cloth pull-ups. My son is starting to potty train so I need a pull-up style, but he still needs regular absorbing abilities. Right now I have fuzzi bunz that we are just pulling on and off, but they get all bunched up funny and I have to fix them after pulling them up. What cloth pull-ups do y'all use?

I have some that were testers for a mama on Hyenacart, and they're great. She makes them with pockets to stuff them, or sewn in just like a regular pull up. We use them for H at night because she's a heavy wetter and a big night drinker, otherwise she's pt'd

We loved the Hanna Andersson organic cotton training pants - they were super soft and very absorbant. We even used our Bummis wraps over the top of them at naptime/over night in order to prevent leaks until he got the hang of it.

I was also looking for cloth pullups - the star bunz were 28 dollars each! He just turned 2 in Dec and on Friday I told him there was no more diapers and he has been much better then when I was still using the diapers during the day - only about 1 accident per day.

I took a couple of our prefolds, and turned them into trainers. The fabric that I cut from the outside edges I sewed into the middle. That's what we use at home, without a cover, along with the old-school Gerber cotton training pants. I have a couple prefold trainers that I sewed a fleece soaker over the outside of that we use for going out.

Nikky and Niji make two reall great styles. A bit on the spendy side, but very very good from what I hear from others. (I haven't used them yet...no kid that old yet.) You can get Nikky and Niji from babyworks.com.

Starbunz Super Undies work pretty well, they have a pocket so you can boost them for overnight.  However, I will give one caveat, if you stuff the pocket, it affects the rise.  Not such a big deal for girls, but a BIG deal for boys.  Buy one size up for nights to accomodate the extra stuffing.

i dont know what ones to buy i made my own, i like to uses a polyester with vinyl backing or water resistant nylon to protect clothes bedding etc, a layer of flannel or cotton on the entire insde and a light padding in the middle incase of accidents (2 or 3 layers) other than that i make them pretty much like underwear

What i love about the learners is that they have side snaps so you don't have to pull the wet trainers over the legs. And they are organic with no synthetic materials. Very absorbant too, we use them on our ECing 9 month old daughter and used them until my son was potty trained.

Sorry I don't have any advice for you, since I didn't start using cloth until my oldest was already potty trained during the day. But I am interested in what people think, as I will be needing to look for trainers for my twins within the next year.
Right now, I have a 3 1/2 year old who is fully potty trained during the day, but is regressing at night. She was in underwear for months, but since she started preschool in the fall, she's been wetting at night again. Anyone have suggestions for a good *nighttime* training pant? My daughter is large for her age, so it would need to fit at least 40-45 lbs. Right now, I just have her in disposable pull-ups with a prefold inside for extra absorption.

I tried the Imse Vimse trainers and found they did not absorb very much (granted, my son is a heavy wetter). So I just skipped trainers and spent 3 days in the house with my son in underwear until he finally 'got' the whole toilet thing.
