Very soon, my toddler will be 2, and we'll be making the big push to ditch the cloth diapers in favor of big girl underwear. Okay, baby steps - I need some trainers first. With G, we almost exclusively used disposables. I'm hoping to cut back on the cost, the waste, and the more-comfortable-because-it-doesn't-feel-wet feeling. I haven't bought anything for N yet, but here are some of my front-runner options:

Blueberry Trainers seem the most like real underwear, and that appeals to me. I want N to realize we are making a change from diapers, and not just wearing a different kind of diaper. These trainers are supposed to be good for containing small accidents, but are far from being as absorbent as a diaper. They are partially waterproof, and so not recommended for overnight or naps.

We used the Overnight style (now called their Bedwetting Pants) with my son shortly before we transitioned out of needing anything at night. They run a little large (so keep that in mind if you decide to order some!), but I like the pull-on style and the fact that they're waterproof. The Bedwetting Pants are definitely great for older kids who don't want to feel like they're still wearing a diaper at night. It is a little bulky, though, if you have a child not used to wearing cloth diapers. I haven't tried the Pull On Trainer, but I think it would have to be at least as effective. They also offer a version with snaps in the back if that's something you're interested in (makes for easier clean-up of those bigger messes).
In the end, I'm not sure if I'll get a variety of these to try out, or if I'll pick one style and stick with it. What I do know is potty training feels like it lasts about 1,000 times longer than it actually does.
Have you gotten to this point with any of your kids? What has worked for you? What do you hope to try? We haven't even officially started yet, and I'm already exhausted.
