Oh, the joys of potty training. Just when you think that your child is ready, you experience a set back and have to start all over again. Well, maybe that is just my story, but I know that it definitely helps to have a good trainer to catch those mistakes! We had the opportunity to try the GroVia My Choice Trainer and love it.
GroVia began as Montana’s Diaper Store, a store that founder and mother Kim Ormsby was running out of her home. Her passion for developing eco-friendly products for parents grew and so did the vision for her company. Eventually GroVia was born as a result of the creation of a one-size cloth diaper that could grow with your child. They now carry cloth diapers, hybrid diapers and BioDiapers that are biodegradable option to use on the go.
The GroVia My Choice Trainer
The My Choice Trainer comes in both cloud or vanilla colors. Also included are Side-Flex Panels specifically designed to form the perfect fit to your child. They come in 6 different colors and will fit your child from size 1T up to 5T.
As you can see, on the inside of the diaper is a hidden pocket where you can add a pad for absorbency. This is perfect for when you are going to take a quick car ride or even for training during naptime or overnights. The inside of the diaper is made so that the child will feel it when it is wet, promoting them to want to use the toilet. The outside shell is made of a waterproof material to minimize leaks. I’ve discovered there are a lot of leaks during potty training and it is nice to have a trainer that can help control that.
We have put our daughter in regular underwear for training, but there are times still where she just needs a little bit of extra protection and this is when I’m so glad that we have this trainer on hand!
The trainer includes snaps on the front to adjust the height of the pant. You can also get two different sizes of side-flex panels to adjust the diaper to fit the child’s hips so that they can learn to pull them down easily. For my daughter, these are easy to push down on her own in time for her to be able to get to the potty. This is very important when it comes to a training pant. You don’t want it to be so easy that they end up running around in the buff all day, yet you don’t want it to be so hard that they can’t get them off in time.
Washing and Care
Per package instructions standard for all cloth diapering products, you should wash this trainer 2-3 times before you use it for the first time. It is not necessary to soak the pants, you can simply wash them with detergent and tumble dry. It is recommended also to not use any bleaches or fabric softeners on the trainer, as these break down the materials faster and could create leaks when using your product.
The GroVia My Choice Trainer is available for purchase on the website for $18.99 or at a variety of retailers such as Amazon, Diapers.com and Kelly’s Closet. Please check their website for a retailer near you.
