Ready to potty train with Flip

Ready to potty train with the Flip trainer. I purchased the Flip trainer in the Albert print with white side panels. Side panels in other colors are sold separately. I love that it came packed with 3 organic cotton pads.   Per the packaging this shell is a One Size and will fit from 20 to 50 lb and 18mo to 4T size. My toddler is just over 31 lbs and 2T so this size should fit him for quite a while.
The outer shell is 100% Laminated Polyester, Side Panels are 95% Polyester and 5% Spandex, Pads are 100% Organic Cotton.
Side panels have two rows of snaps to customize the fit around hips/waist.  The shell itself has 3 rows of snaps to adjust the rise. Snap down to fit from 20-29 lbs, snap to second row to fit 30-39 lbs and third row for 40-50 lbs, or leave completely unsnapped to fit up to 4T.
According to the washing instructions on packaging you can use 1/4 cup of bleach in the hot wash once a month. It is recommended that you line dry the cover and tumble dry the insert.

The flip trainer and 3 pads come packaged in a fully recyclable packaging. I LOVE the Albert Print!

The 3 organic cotton pads are generous in size and have hoop and loop strips on the top and bottom, you can fold them down to size.  The shell has hidden hook and loop underneath the pocket on the front and back so you can attach the pads.

There is plenty of room to grow in the bum area.
 Out of the 3 rows of snaps for the rise I have it set to the lowest possible setting.
 Notice there are two rows of snaps on the stretchy sides. It would fit him better/snug if i were to snap it on the first row, but by doing so he has trouble grabbing the fabric to pull down, so I set it to the second row so that it is looser around his hips making it easier for him to get a grasp of the fabric.
 Here is a pic of the Flip trainer alongside the Grovia and the two WunderUnders.

..and the adventures in potty training continue.
Till next time,
Have a happy healthy crunchy day! :-)
