Best bottoms are my favorite. They are so practical! We purchased best bottom diapers for the baby, and are not using the inserts for both the diapers and now the pull-ups! We only use during long car rides, naps, and at night, and with the doublers we have had fewer leakages than with disposables... plus already saving money! My 30 lb 3 year old has the 4T size and they fit with room to grow as well.

I really was excited about these, and love the feel of the shell (it feels like real underwear) and the snap in inserts. But they didn't fit on my chunky baby :-( I tried the 3T for my son who wears 3T. I am afraid to try the larger sizes, since they may be too big in other ways and seem more like a diaper then to my picky boy who wants to be a "big boy" but sometimes needs a little extra coverage when we are out and about and can't always make it to the public restroom in time.

Works with diaper service inserts, but needs elastic on the legs
I purchased the XL. My toddler has become too long for the diaper wraps and the XL is just right. My toddler is 90% successful with urine, but still learning BM control. He is determined to be a "big boy" like his friends, so these make it easier on mom and keep him happy. We use the diaper service small diaper inserts--they snap right in. We use a medium at night--they don't snap in, but lie in pretty well and stay put. The only negative is that the legs gap and a large pee can wick out. Elastic to snug up the legs would be great. The next time design is considered, my boy has requested robots and monkeys for decoration.

Brilliant! I love these!!
I just purchased the large training pants for my 2-1/2 year old almost 40lb son. They are wonderful. Because he hasn't actually started to use the potty yet, I am putting the Best Bottom diaper inserts into them (instead of the training pants inserts). They are super absorbent!!! They are as effective as the disposable diapers I had been using. These training pants fit and work great, and the covers really do prevent leaks and are completely reusable even after a large pee. These are great!!

Wanted to like these more
I absolutely love the best bottom diapers, and I thought these trainers were another great concept. However, I have to agree with other reviewers that these run really small. My son who just grew into 3T clothing fits perfectly in the size large/4T, so I'm not sure how long this system will fit. I also agree that it tends to leak onto the outer cotton with my boy, but maybe wouldn't with a girl.
