are probably the most cleverly designed training pants I've come across yet!
Super Skivvies are convertible.
Meaning, once you've triumphed over the trials of potty-training, you can still use them for (very stylish) underwear!
During the potty training period, use the included bamboo/organic cotton insert
tucked into the pocket of the underwear to use as trainers!
These are my favorite training pants for Katie! They fit well and are made to the highest quality of workmanship.
They're adorable and, best of all, they do their job!
I started out with several pairs of another brand of training pants and found that they were over-padded and too absorbent, so that Katie could not tell the difference between them and a diaper.
Of course, they were still not as absorbent as a diaper, so we ended up with many wet spots on couches and highchairs and it was discouraging!
Super Skivvies have more absorbing capabilities than the Little Beetle Learner, but Katie can still tell she's wearing underwear and not a diaper, and knows when she's going, not after.
In fact, while I was sitting here starting this post yesterday, Katie (wearing her Super Skivvies,) ran in from the living room, saying "Potty!" stopped short of my desk, (still on the vinyl floor, thank goodness,) and as I jumped to rush her to the bathroom, I noticed there was already little puddle on the floor.
She'd been absorbed in playing with her toys and obviously had waited too long, but when she'd started to go, she could feel it and ran to me for help!
With the other training pants, she'd never even tell me that she'd gone in them, and we'd discover the accident much later after the fact, too late to get her to the potty to reinforce where she should go! (In the above incident, Katie was able to stop and we got her to the bathroom in time to finish! Yay!)
I took Katie out with me to do grocery shopping and errands and let her wear the Super Skivvies the whole time. She didn't have a SINGLE accident the whole time we were out! (My confidence to make a go for it was boosted by the car seat protector!
I was so proud!
Once you're more confident that accidents are a thing of the past, the insert can be easily removed from these convertible trainers, and voila! You have underwear of the highest quality!
No need to buy a whole set of cloth training pants or any number of packages of disposable training pants and then a whole set of underwear later!

to see the cost breakdown of the disposable training pants route vs. the Super Skivvies route!
Super Skivvies feature one layer of soft 100% cotton jersey knit in the body, a rayon (from bamboo)/organic cotton velour liner in the crotch area, 100% cotton interlock waist and thigh bands, and no-roll elastic encased in the waist.
Included is a removable insert consisting of three layers rayon (from bamboo)/organic cotton fleece. Just tuck the insert into the crotch lining, and your undies are trainers!
Super Skivvies are not an alternative to diapers. Including the insert, there are five layers of protection, enough to handle a single accident.
