Flip Trainers-Our Insight
We've officially been testing out these trainers for about 4 weeks now and have primarily been using them as added fluff to our cloth diaper stash. Technically, they are designed to assist your toddler in moving out of diapers and using the potty. I'm confident my son Tyler will get there when he's ready but we're both not ready to take that leap. SO, I can only give you my input about the technical details and reasons I like them as a diaper and not necessarily as a trainer.
These trainers are by far the best designed trainers I've tested out yet. They are very trim and adjustable to toddlers 20lbs to 50 lbs. They can truly be pulled up and down by your toddler. The kits that are available for purchase right now are offered for a limited time. I think this is a great deal for what it all entails. I have 5 extra pads (look like a double) that are organic cotton and have used these inside the shell and also inside other pocket diapers for extra absorbency. These trainers could also be used at night time as a diaper with 2 or 3 pads stacked inside the shell. So basically you get 5 diaper changes for $25-not bad!!!
The pads attach to the inside of the shell with a hook/loop system and so nothing slides around. Since the shell is a laminated polyester like most other covers for cloth diapers (e.g. Thirsties covers), it can be reused over and over again in one day. The pads are also absorbent like a normal cloth diaper but since it is 100%, your toddler will feel wet.
Right now, we just have the "gender neutral" kits in stock which has the vanilla color with a turquoise blue. It's nothing fancy or super exciting like our other printed diapers. But it certainly gets the job done and works for boys and girls.
I'll post pictures of Tyler wearing them soon!
