    Where can I find

    Reusable training pants? All I have found in the big stores is the Huggies and Pampers disposable training pants but I would like to find some reusable ones so she feels the wet more and helps with PT-ing. Thanks ladies!
    MontanaMama2009 responded:
    There are cloth training pants with a thicker middle. When they wet, they feel it. Walmart sells them for boys and girls. Washable.

    What Nanny did for Neathery is sew in a piece of towel down the middle (simple zig zag stitch) of regular size 2 panties. Just pop into the washing machine.

    Is that what you mean?

    Jen_FLMom replied to MontanaMama2009's response:
    Yep, that would be good. I don't suppose they make any with a non-fabric outside so they feel wet inside but don't leak as much? Probably just wishful thinking... ;)
    KCAimee replied to Jen_FLMom's response:
    You mean like these:

    I have these that I bought for Madison but I never used them. You could also buy cloth diaper covers and put those over panties so if she wet through it wouldn't get out as much.

    There are Bummis waterproof trainers that I love! They're not super bulky like the Gerbers, and they work much better.

    Target sells the ones that Aimee posted. They're down the same aisle that Roni mentioned. A word of caution though --- they don't hold a lot of liquid.

    Thank you all so much for your input!!! I think I am going to plan a potty boot camp for the next weekend I am home with DD all weekend and see how she does with some training pants. She is showing a lot of signs of being ready but I think right now the biggest hurdle is the absorbency of the diapers and her not feeling wet when she pees. We'll see what happens...

    Good luck! Remember: two steps forward, one step back.
