Omaïki HERÖ Training Pants Comparison: Daytime vs Nighttime
by Samantha from This West Coast Mommy
Omaïki’s HERÖ trainers come in both daytime and night time versions so you can give your child extra protection during their most accident prone times. Not all accidents are created equal, however, and Omaïki does a good job of covering all the bases. Both the daytime and nighttime trainers have an absorbent middle section, but the daytime trainer only catches small leaks while the nighttime version is designed to absorb a full pee and prevent a bed wetting. You never really know what your potty training experience will be like until the process has begun, so I think it would be best to start out with a few of each HERÖ design until you know what your child’s potty habits will be.
During the Day
There’s nothing like potty training to familiarize yourself with your child’s bathroom habits. Many toddlers find play dates and car rides especially challenging times to keep dry, and they need a little extra insurance while they’re learning. Here’s where the Daytime Trainer comes in handy.
Omaïki’s HERÖ Daytime Training Pants offer light absorption and a small, waterproof layer with a very discreet look that is similar to underwear. All the daytime trainers come with an elastic waistband that gives your child the independence they’re ready for, and they also come with a side snap option that makes accident cleanup as simple as a diaper change.
The jersey material inside and out is very soft, and although there’s a thick, absorbent middle section of bamboo and organic cotton, these training pants are still fairly trim. They fit under pants just like a pair of underwear which is good news for big kids who are firmly against anything resembling a diaper. For little ones just becoming familiar with potty sensations, a little bit of absorption allows them time to get to the bathroom if they feel an accident beginning to happen without giving the impression of wearing a bulky diaper.
The daytime trainers come in three sizes: small (20-25 lbs), medium (25-30 lbs), and large (30lbs+). Omaïki has three prints to choose from including Cactus, Flamingo, and Superher (above).
In comparison, Omaïki’s HERÖ Nighttime Training Pants offer customizable absorption and sizing that goes all the way from 18-24 months to an extra large special order version for children up to 12 years old. The stretchy sides create a snug overall fit just like underwear, so kids can take a big step of independence by pulling them up and down on their own. A perfect fit is also important should your child have a nighttime accident.
The sides and waist hug tightly while the middle section has a built in absorption layer of bamboo and organic cotton and a pocket to stuff the two included inserts plus more, if needed.
Enough absorption can mean the difference between a quick change before going back to sleep and a big production of changing clothes and bedding. The inside is also lined with stay-dry polyester, so a small amount of pee may not even wake your child up.
HERÖ Nighttime Trainers come in Cactus, Flamingo, and Superhero prints, plus two solid colours in grey and emerald. (The colour Mango shown is discontinued.)
Not all accidents are created equal, and Omaïki’s trainers cover all the bases. If you and your child are ready to start this next phase of life, then Omaïki HERÖ Daytime and Nighttime Trainers can help give both of you what you need—autonomy and a bit of accident insurance. You never really know what your potty training experience will be like until the process has begun, but we hope this information helps you decide which trainer(s) to go with.
