Glad to hear you've fixed your smelly dipe problem!
I'll definetly have to try the Toddle-Ease on my daughter then. She will 5 in January and is average size for her age so you'd think they would fit her if they fit your daughter. But you have to remember that she may have a thicker waist or bigger thighs and still be overall smaller than your little one... Percentiles and even height/weight don't necessarily say much about the child's shape and some 'smaller' children may still outgrow certain things that still fit a slightly bigger child.... We'll have to see but I'm especially doubtful about the covers. As it is now the Airflows are on the last setting so I'm not sure they'd work as pull-ons.
I'm kinda torn as to what to do with her right now... One part of me doesn't want to rush her into being dry at night and realizes it's not that uncommon for a 4.5 year old (plus there's a family history of bedwetting and sleepwalking on her father's side...). But another part of me is wondering if I'm doing enough to 'help' her along... It's so hard to know where to draw the line between 'helping' and 'pushing' you know...
My experience with the training pants kinda differs though... I agree about the snapping part. We also had a few nasty pooping in the training pants incidents and it would have been nice if they snapped shut. But my daughter had plenty of incidents where she only peed a little bit. She'd start to pee, would catch herself and then finish in the toilet... Just enough so that if she didn't have waterproof training pants it would have wet her underwear AND clothes but not even close to a full pee where she'd need a diaper. I was very glad to have them... In fact I had some other training pants that weren't waterproof and I hated them... Got rid of them pretty quick.
LOL about the small Sandy's! I feel the exact same way except I'm also dying to try the extra small Sandy's! I know they wouldn't fit my newborns for very long but they're irresistable!! Hehe!
