Super Skivvies Review & Giveaway!

Super Skivvies are the Original Convertible Cloth Training Pants. They are such a unique a well thought out system for little ones that are learning to use the potty and transition away from diapers. Super Skivvies are convertible training pants, meaning that they are both training pants and undies! There is a removable insert that you can slide into the pocket to turn them into trainers and then, when you are all done with potty training, you simply leave the insert out and you have cute undies for your little one! 

The pocket for the insert (or you can simply leave it out once your little one is done potty training)
Here the insert is tucked in

Super Skivvies are made with soft 100% cotton interlock and each pair comes with a removable insert consisting of: rayon (from bamboo) and organic cotton fleece. The inserts are so soft! The undies are very soft feeling as well and I love that they have just enough stretch for little man to be able to easily grasp the top band to pull them up and down. I think these are by far the easiest trainers we have used for little man!

Steph was so kind to send me a pair of Super Skivvies in the Humpty Dumpty print. I told her little man's measurements and she sent me the Small - it was a perfect fit! there are no gaps at his legs, yet they move with him nicely and are nice and soft on his skin. I also love that the tag is on the outside back - it's a super cute tag and it would be a shame to cover it up, plus, with it on the outside, I don't have to worry about the tag irritating little man's skin!

I am so, so proud of little man! He has really embraced using the potty and loves undies! Within the last month, he has had fewer and fewer accidents when we are out and about and so I started looking for some trainers that were more like undies than a diaper. I am so happy that I have gotten the chance to use Super Skivvies with little man! I have been using them for quite awhile now and I really think that they are helping to move potty training along! 

About 2 weeks ago, little man and I got to go along with hubby on one of his work trips (Yay!). I thought that the long car ride, a new location and different routine might set us back on potty training. I was so wrong! I'm not sure if it was the new location, or that he was sleeping in bed with us all night long or that I was just trusting that he could do it and wear undies throughout the day, but little man did amazing on our trip! He still wears a diaper at night, but he was dry every morning on our trip! During the day- no accidents! He was even dry throughout a 2 hour nap! (Now, I was still happy that he was wearing his Super Skivvies as back-up... just in case!) Since being home, little man has only had one tiny accident in his Super Skivvies on his way to the potty. I am happy to say that the inserts kept his clothes dry, yet he could still feel that he had an "accident". I think that we are definitely getting closer to being able to try Super Skivvies for night time!

Little man really loves wearing his Super Skivvies! They are comfy, don't restrict any movement and they are easy for him to pull on and off! I think that moving towards using more underwear-like trainers has really helped little man take a big step towards becoming fully potty trained. I have been so impressed by how well Super Skivvies have held up to multiple washings (and they are still as soft as ever!). I would definitely recommend Super Skivvies, whether you are starting your potty training adventure, in the middle or looking for some quality, hand-made undies for your little one! I love them and already know that I want to add some more to little man's training pant/underwear drawer!
