There’s nothing quite as amazing as a child’s determination and will to do something. The potty training/learning experience with my toddler has been mostly self-paced. At times I’ve forced him to do the potty thing, but really and truly, he’s the one most interested in using the toilet. He’s even beginning to show signs of night training with the occasional accident. Potty training at nighttime is different than during the day, and despite a few various techniques, I still prefer to have something on for a little extra protection. The Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer comes to our night rescue leaving dry beds and only wet bums.

Canadian Made & Designed – Omaiki
Unless you’re a regular follower and reader of mine, you might not be familiar with this amazing Canadian Brand. Omaïki small-time cloth diaper company is owned and operated by a dynamic duo of ladies – Arianne and Anouk. They create and design new prints, products and more on the regular at Omaïki. All of their products are manufactured in Quebec. Omaïki makes a daytime training pant, as well as a series of diapers, feminine hygiene pads, and other reusable products. I’m currently obsessed with the Cabrio diaper and use it all the time and can’t wait to try out the new line up for the Home – Hom.

Hero Night Time Training Pants.
Recently redesigned, the 2017 release of the Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer, is perfect for older children and heavy wetters. Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer comes in sizes XS to XXL fitting kids from 18 months to 12 years providing the perfect overnight solution for kids of all sizes and ages. Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainers have a wide soft, stretchy elastic waistband. Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer is a pull on underwear style with a polyester jersey for stay dry experience. Absorbency is customizable with a built-in absorbency, and two optional inserts made of 56% bamboo viscose, 24% organic cotton, and 20% polyester. The Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer should be washed 5-6 times for optimal absorbency, but I got a dry morning in only one wash. Inside the Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer, a large jersey pocket opening can be found in the centre middle. My hand easily fits in here, and additional absorbency is easily stuffed into this pocket to meet your child’s needs.
The Financial Logistics?
Why cloth training pants?
Because while these will run you $34.95-38.95 each, you only need a couple compared to the never-ending disposable purchases. I would own 3-4 depending on how much laundry you wanted to do. $105 in cloth training pants to last you a year of night training versus $25 for a pack of 44 good nights (as priced online in December 2017). Over the course of the year that’s $200 plus dollars. And you supported a small local business producing products here in Canada.
But what about laundry?
If you’re kid pees in them, and you aren’t currently washing cloth diapers, rinse them out in the sink and toss them in with the next load of hot laundry. Rinsing them in the sink will skip the double step wash system cloth diapering parents do with dirty diapers. I would wash them with my towels and bedding on hot, but with a solid detergent, you could probably get away with a cold/warm wash. Ewww. I have to rinse pee diapers. That’s just life. We’re parents. Dealing with gross things is what we do.
My Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer Experience
Most of the time I try to get up in the middle of the night and take him to go pee when he wakes up screaming. However, I solo-parent at night, and I have a young baby waking up every couple of hours in the night. Sometimes I just wait for him to crawl into bed with me because I have zero energy to help him out at 2 am. It’s on those nights that I’m grateful for Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer because I know they will hold a pee and my bed will stay dry.
- Building Underwear Confidence: I want to move into the normality of underwear, and switching from night time diapers which require me to put them on and to lay down is a buzz kill. I love how the pull on absorbent underwear helps us make the transition. He can pull these on and off by himself.
- Bedtime Wetters: Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainers do get the job done and hold more pee than any other traditional cloth training pant. My child isn’t a heavy wetter at night; he holds until the morning once he’s playing. But they do keep the bed dry, and we don’t need to use both inserts. If these inserts don’t cut it, easily stuff with your favourite combo.
- Fit & Function: Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer does look funny. I’m not sure if its because he’d be better off for a smaller size or what. You’ll notice the weird sag in the bottom in my photos. If you are used to the trim fit of a disposable training pant or even a cloth diaper, these will be a little off-putting. But no fears, they are still comfy cosy for little tykes, and he’s had no complaints.

Some mornings Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer is bone dry, and some mornings Nighttime Trainer is soaked. This makes them the perfect ease-of mind solution for this potty-training mama like me. I never know when he’s going to have an accident, I never like washing sheets and making beds. If you are struggling with a bedwetting child, Omaïki HERÖ Nighttime Trainer come in so many sizes to meet your needs and will help keep your beds dry, and children content.
