Review: Happy Heinies Pocket Trainer

We ordered these from Kelly's Closet.. I purchased a size medium in red. A variety of sizes and colors are available.

Materials: This has a PUL layer on the outside, and a fleece liner. We've been stuffing them with a microfiber towel we already had.

Closures: These snap up the front, which we like. The elastic is nice around the legs; not too tight, not too loose

Sizing: We ordered a medium, sized for 30-40 lbs.

Acorn is about 29 33 lbs (we got a new weight, and he's bigger than he was), and mostly wears size 2T clothes - he can wear most 18 month pants, but they're too short, and he can wear 3Ts but they're too long.

These fit ok - better than the Snap-EZ pocket trainers, because the elastic is a bit more stretchy, but the pocket feature makes these pretty bulky, even with just one stuffer.

Absorbency: Obviously, as a pocket, you can put as much or as little stuffing in as you want, but the whole point of trainers, IMHO, is to be less thick so that they can fit better under pants, and because you're not expecting them to absorb as much.  We've had problems with fluids escaping off the stuffer and wicking through the PUL at the legs on both of our pocket trainers.

Drying: Because these are a pocket trainer, they dry super fast.

Final thoughts: I really dislike pocket trainers at this point. We've had more leaks from pocket trainers than we've ever had from pocket diapers or from the AIO trainers. The inserts never seem to stay where they need to be.

They dry fast, but if you've got a smaller kiddo a pocket diaper might work just as well.

Disclaimer: these trainers were bought by me, and this review is my personal opinion of them. No compensation was provided. The link to Kelly's Closet is an affiliate link and I get a percentage of sales through the link.
