What age did you start using cloth training pants?
Did they cause confusion like pullups can?

Kieran grabs her self when she pees saying owie with in seconds of peeing. So I think she may be gearing up to want to train, but she doesn't tell us when she poos. With Seamus we did all sposie stuff (except for some night when we run out of pullups he gets a cloth one) but I want to do cloth with Kieran. I'm worried though, that it can cause confusion and be too diaper like, just like Pullups can be. We only used pullups in the day for Seamus for around 2 weeks or so then stopped cause they didn't help, but he was almost 3 and telling us (with words) that he wanted to go potty on the potty and that he was ready to train.
Anyone have any good side snapping, free, trainer patterns? I want to try making our own before I sell off some of my stash to fund some.

I went straight to underwear. Etsy has some decent patterns.

This was years ago, but I tried a few things, including pullups, and DD only trained at past 3 years old, and only when I finally got frustrated and went to straight underwear. When she saw the mess it made all over her clothes and stuff, it only took a couple of accidents before she finally understood. I think after that that with DS, I'm skipping the whole training pant thing, it's either diapers or underwear.

We ended up doing the diapers or underwear with Julia too (the little one I nanny for). She did not care in the least about pull-ups. She would potty in them just the same as she did in diapers. I don't think it was so much confusing...as just not effective.

I did find the "thick center" Gerber undies were good for training (so I assume it would be similar to a cloth one). She still felt that wetness, but they had a little extra padding (so I was not mopping the floor ten times a day). She went very quickly from a lot of "accidents" in pull-ups to maybe one a day in trainers, to very rapidly being totally trained. So, your best bet might be some of those trainers, they are pretty cheap (like $6 for three) and pretty effective, imo.

Julia was three when we did this, btw.

Gaby I tried pull ups & disposable diapers, but in the end what worked was just going straight to underwear, so I think I'll do the same with Emmy

Lily's cloth trainers feel much more like underwear to me than diapers. They pull on like underwear and have a little bit of padding in the crotch with a hidden layer of PUL, but they aren't big and fluffy like a CD. If we have a miss, she still feels very wet and her clothes are wet, but its not SOPPING wet and everywhere... so I think they're good for that transitional period in between diapers and underwear.

Sorry I don't have any patterns or anything for you.

With Zoe we didnt do training pants just went right to underwear and that worked she didnt like how the pee felt running down her legs and t only took one poop in the undies and she was using the potty all the time. She completely day trained a week before she turned 2 and we still put a diaper on her at night with no problems i think it was about a month after she was day trained that we put her in undies for bed.
