I bought some Tinkle Time Trainers for my triplets and they are fabulous! They can wear regular clothes with them on, can easily pull them up and down and I can stuff them a little or a lot to contain accidents so my furniture and their carseats don't smell like urine! These are FABULOUS, because they can still feel the wetness when there is an accident but there are no leaks, so I can go anywhere while still newly trained without fear. They are also pretty trim in the diaper bag so I can stuff several in there easily.
Worth way more than their weight in gold!
After cloth diapering my twins, I was determined to use cloth training pants for potty training, rather than pull-ups. But doing #2 in the potty has proven to be rather a challenge, so I needed a long-term training pant solution that was easy for cleaning up poo accidents. And there's not much out there! I purchased the Tinkle Time pattern and have made several of the snap-open pants from the FOE pattern. And they are WONDERFUL. I'm not a great seamstress, but I haven't had a hard time making them at all. I made them absorbent enough to hold a pretty major accident, yet they're still trim enough to fit under pants. We haven't had them long, but they've been put through long car trips, lots of naptimes, and trips to the grocery store and we haven't had a leak yet.
If you're thinking of making your own, note that they're meant to be made using stretchy knit material with partial PUL. If you make them with PUL all over, you'll have to make them bigger--I had to go 2 sizes bigger for them to fit. But it's worth it to me for the extra waterproof-ness
I love these trainers. We have the overnight pocket trainer and I ordered them without the inserts because I have so many lying around the house. Hope's customer service is PHENOMENAL and she was very responsive to questions and requests. The trainers fit great and never leak. Our only problem is that we don't have enough!
I highly recommend these

I can't say enough about the exceptional quality and exceptional customer service provided by Hope at Ladder Hill.
I had some trouble with some of the material on two of my trainers and Hope went over and above in helping to remedy the problem (including a free custom order and soaker which she mailed before asking me to send my pairs for repairs). The defect was NOT a Ladder Hill Design issue, but simply an issue with some material. She very quickly repaired them (after offering to just sew me three new ones) and we had them back in use quickly.
I have the Tinkle Time Trainers for a night pull-up for my PL'd son. Typically I use a premium prefold or doublers to stuff them with, but I do have one of her bamboo inserts which I LOVE! They are very trim and detach for faster dry time.
I have never seen quality like these trainers and if I could give them more than five stars...I would!
We have not been good test pilots for leaks since my DS hardly ever wets at night. We have had an occasional leak, but I believe it is more related to the sizing I chose than anything else - would purchase from her again. I chose generous sizing thinking he'd been in these a long time ;)
Hope is a fabulous communicator - never had so much attention and help from anyone!

These trainers are great. My heavy wetter uses them for training. Even during the early days of PL they held up very nicely. Her site is almost always sold out which is a bit annoying, but there is good reason for it. It is hard to keep up with the demand for her awesome trainers!
