This item features a super-dry core that absorbs like a diaper. The dri-guard leak barriers help to prevent leakage. Training pants need to be comfortable as the child makes the transition from diapers to underwear. This item is made with soft stretchy sides that provide a better fit and allow the child to easily pull on and off. This makes these training pants very comfortable and very close to the feel of underwear which helps the child feel more confident and responsible.
