cloth training pants recommendations/experience?

Just when I finally feel like a pro with CDing, here comes the Potty Train! Now I feel clueless again... LOL

I'm looking to buy some cloth training pants for my son who just turned 20 months. He's been using the potty semi-regularly for the past month or so, but still does not usually tell us when he has to go, so there are plenty of diaper changes still.

I like the look of the BumWear Pull Ups, since they have the convenient snap on the sides.

I've also heard about Imse Vimse training pants, but am wondering if that may be a level too advanced at this stage?

Can anyone share experience with any you've bought, or about at what point you started using them and when you ditched the diapers entirely (daytime and finally nighttime)?

Thanks in advance!

I use kushies waterproof when we are going on car rides, and they work ok, but he can't pull them down himself, no leaks though. I don't know if I recommend them since he can't be independent though. I also use gerber training pants around the house, cause they allow him to feel when he wets and that helped him potty train faster. Hope that helps.

I have used the Bummis and motherease training pants and both are fine for around the house...I wouldn't use them out though. Motherease makes a bed wetter training pant that I have heard good things about

By the way, I forgot to mention that if you have any pocket diapers, you can also use them for potty training. Just remove the insert. They are literally the same design as a trainer and will save you money from having to buy them.

I'm still working on potty training my little guy so i don't have much advice to give there. i can say that i do like Happy Heiny's trainers. I don't know anything about BumWear, but Happy Heiny's also come with side snaps which make them easy to change but still allow for him to pull down if he ever gets the notion. They also come with pockets so if I'm ever going to be out a little longer than anticipated, I can stuff it like a pocket diaper for added absorbency.
