Bebeboo Diapers has added a new product to their lineup! Allow me to introduce Grow Transitional Underpant (also known as a trainer). The first release, and the print I received, was Caladium. It completely SOLD OUT! If that doesn’t tell you something about how good this cloth trainer is, I don’t know what else would!
My daughter (and model) Norah is 4 years old and about 40 lbs. Norah is only in diapers at night now. Mostly disposable trainers as she is too tall for most cloth trainers. Bebeboo’s Grow fit her great! She even asks for the soft cloth one now!
Details of Grow
- Sized to fit most
- Waterproof outer made of PUL
- Attached inner is one layer thick. Made of super soft 60/40 bamboo cotton blend. Absorbent enough to catch an accident but not so absorbent that child confuses it with a diaper. There is no stay dry layer for that same reason.
- The inner layer is designed like a pocket so parents can add additional absorbency if needed.
- Three rise snaps and stretchy side tabs that allow for e perfect fit while still easy for child to pull up and down themselves.
- Unsnap the stretchy tabs for quick removal in case of messes.
Things I Like
Quality of materials and craftmanship is awesome. It washes and dries super easy. We only use trainers at night which means not enough to make it’s own load. I honestly just wash it with my regular laundry and run it with two loads. If you are wondering, “why no prewash and will that work?”… I would say the large majority of us wouldn’t prewash a onesie that had a pee leak on it. I feel like this is the same thing. As always, keep in mind this is what I do and what works for me. There is no one right path to anything and that includes cloth diapers.
I’ve always been a fan of Bebeboo Diapers‘ prints. The designs are beautiful and unique.
I also really liked the way the BeBeBoo Transitional Underpant fit. It was trim and my 4 year old daughter had no issue at all pulling them up or down on her own.
Grow is sold as a stand alone trainer. Bebeboo does have something called the Fold. It was created to fit inside the pocket of the Grow for additional absorbency. It is a three layer prefold that can be padfolded to fit inside. It’s great for a heavy wetting child. That comes with the tradeoff of not being so trim once stuffed inside.
Things I might change
I am coming from a place of testing these on a tall 4 year old, so it probably wouldn’t apply to younger or shorter children. But I wish the rise was a tiny bit higher. They fit fine, but I think may have fit even better if that were the case.
Sometimes the stretchy tabs would unsnap with one still attached to the back of the diaper and one still attached to the front. Doesn’t change function or how it washes. And I have no idea how it would be fixed without attaching to diaper at one end. It’s just something that caught my attention.
I definitely would recommend the Bebeboo Diaper Grow Transitional Underpant as a good nighttime potty trainer.
The next new print release for BebeBoo Diapers Transitional Underpant is coming Friday, July 2. You can find them at BeBeBoo Diapers!
