Training Unders In Organic Cotton
These are truly the best trainers out there and with nine children I've tried just about everything. The solid colors are vibrant and beautiful. The prints are adorable, and he was so excited when he saw his new trainers.They seem pricey but not if you're using them to replace bags and bags of disposables pull ups like I am. They are worth every penny!

Great undies for those transitioning out of diapers
These undies are great - excellent quality and lovely fabric. They fit a little on the big side, but they don't fall down when my son is just wearing the underwear without pants. It would be great to have more training undies w prints (makes wearing undies much more fun!). Otherwise a wonderful product.

Great training pants. Only wish the training style came in the prints fabric.

Best EC backup!
We did elimination communication (EC) with our boy from birth, but always used cloth diapers as backup. I got these trainers when he was 8 month old (22 lbs) and pretty much ended up using them all the time instead of the diapers. He has thunder thighs and I use XS and S both. (S for hot days when I want even more breathability). These trainers are incredibly soft, super well made and colorfast. Love them! They are easy to slide on an off- great for EC. If I need a bit more protection I put a thin wool soaker over them for a super trim fit and no sweating! The unders easily hold a miss and are much easier to wash and faster to dry than the fitteds we used before.

Soooo small..size waaay up
I just got these in and was blown away with the quality- they r EXCELLENT!!! By far, the best BUT I can only recommend them with huge caveats. They dont fit ANYWHERE on my son- waist, legs, butt, nowhere, since smalls go up to 41 lbs and he is 36 lbs I figured I would give them a try and bought the smalls, which leads me to my next caveat...do they even make these above smalls?? All the trainers seem to always b sold out, and I only see smalls and extra smalls listed as options. So I bought the smalls and loved them. Until I tried them on him. Bitterly disappointed.
My kid is 2. He's in Gerber size 3t but that's the biggest size they make. Why r clothing manufacturers making only small, tiny trainers?? Kids who wear 3-5t clothes should at least be considered a viable market for selling trainers. Most kids aren't potty trained at 18 months and my older kid was wearing 3T at 18 months anyway so she would have also needed big trainers. I'm back to the drawing Board again with my son, but I feel like this shouldn't even be a hassle.
The size chart is way off on this. The availability of sizes and training pants in general is awful, not just for this brands but for all the major clothing brands. The only thing about these I recommend is the quality. The Hannah quality, as usual, is excellent.

Comfortable and stylish
My son has sensitive skin and developed a rash on his bottom from every other underwear we tried. These underwear fit well and we are very happy with the way they look. Best of all, they are safe for his skin. A great buy.

Helps with accidents during potty training
I am absolutely in love with all the Hanna stuff! My kids are all on the wee tiny side, so all the undies in XS are still pretty large on them. They are aged 3 and 4, but I will not fault the brand for that. The girl undies do get a little stretched out that they are falling off my daughters waist. Also, they help absorb accidents but don't totally absorb it. My daughter has had plenty of accidents since we started potty training and I feel like the training undies have helped during the accidents except at night. Other than that though the fabric is so soft and durable. I have had to do some scrubbing already and laundering at least everyday. They are holding up outstandingly. Hanna has not disappointed me. The colors are also lovely. I decided to buy the training pants in just the solid colors because they were just a tad less expensive and bought some of the more colorful printed undies in the regular non training kind, for after my daughter has caught on to potty training. I decided to just deal with doing laundry more often, rather than spending more on something she will only need for a short time. I love Hanna Andersson!

Seems Well-Made, Actually is Cotton
I bought the XS for my 18 month old daughter who is probably average in size.
It *looks* like the same size as the 3T popular brand that starts with G, but it's actually smaller. They shrunk up just the right amount in the hot wash / hot dryer. The leg holes are more snug (a huge plus) and the waist is just a little smaller. We haven't had any #2 accidents yet with these, but I think the smaller leg hole size will be useful in containing that situation. The rise in the front is not quite as tall as G's. This means it fits closer at the crotch which contains accidents better. The rise in the back is just a tiny bit too low for what I wanted (just a little bit of the occasional plumber's butt syndrome). It is overall better proportioned than G's.
The lining is layers of actual cotton and not cheap polyester fill (as far as I can tell). G says theirs are all-cotton, but when you read the small tag you'll see it says polyester filling inside. You must wash HA training pants before use or else they won't absorb very well (just like a cloth diaper, they need to be "broken in"). They only hold one small or a partial accident.
LOOK & FEEL
Also, I love the clean look of the nice white underpants, and I definitely see these lasting through training more than one child. The seams look great, etc. They are so very soft. So far I've been using these on my daughter for 2 weeks and I'm very happy with them. I took away one bar from look / feel because even though the fit itself is good, the rise is still just a little too high in the front and a little too low in the back.
