Training Unders In Organic Cotton
Love the organic cotton, but it doesn't hold in much
I love that Hanna Andersson offers pajamas and underwear in organic cotton. My son is just starting potty training though, and these don't serve that purpose well. The extra layers of cotton might hold in some leakage if the kid is on the way to the potty, but it does not do well at my son's stage in which he is just peeing right through it. These also are very high-waisted and come up to nearly his belly button. I would have preferred them to not come up as high and have some other patterns and styles as well.

We are starting with using the potty and we needed something for daycare that was not disposable but would not lead to a puddle on the floor. My son is used to cloth diapers and is trying to get them off by himself to go to the potty, so we wanted him to have the independence of pulling down his own underwear, while using something that wouldn't result in a massive mess. These are amazing. They hold a ton, but still make him realize he peed, which he promptly announces. Daycare loves them, they have washed well, the fit is perfect - we love them. My son is 26 months, 31-32lbs and about 36" tall and we went with the size small. They fit great, a bit big but we prefer a larger fit to make them easier for him to pull up and down on his own. They are not too big at all and if we order more we would stick with the small. We started with 9, and we also got a few other brands. The hanna are by far our favorite ones!

All toddler undies should be like this!
Yes, these are the type of undies that little girls need - covered elastics and good coverage, - so they can play hard without their undies scratching or bunching or getting in the way; and no chance of adults teaching them to be conscious of what their underwear are doing while they are exploring the world. Thank you. My only recommendation would be to gender the colours a little less (doesn't need to be any difference between what the boys and girls wear at this age) and to state whether they are pre-shrunk. Great product!

I ordered the size XS after reading other reviews. My daughter wears a size 90 in Hanna Anderson clothes and a 2T in other stores. The XS size fits perfect! No shrinkage upon washing, although I washed in cool and dried on medium. My daughter loves the colors/patterns and it prompts her to use the potty since with these she doesn't want to wear a diaper. Would definitely recommend!

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.
