Entering into potty training took a lot of preparation, both mentally preparing myself and researching what items I would need to facilitate my son’s transition from diaper to toilet. One of my biggest concerns was with training pants; to use training pants or not to use training pants? Or which type training pants should I choose? So many questions, but one easily answered when I ‘bumped’ into Sarah from Buttler Bottoms on Twitter.
Buttler Bottoms is a family-owned cloth diaper retailer, selling everything you need for cloth diapering through potty training: cloth diapers, wet bags, pail liners, wipes, and detergent. I hadn’t heard of Buttler Bottoms before, and knowing that we were going to be potty training soon, I asked her if they carried trainers; Sarah responded that they were just finishing their design and were going to be carrying them shortly. Sarah sent us a couple of pairs, and my son got to be one of the first to try Buttler Bottoms training pants!
My son is currently in the in-between stage of potty training; he just turned two, and still tends to urinate whenever we put training pants or underwear on him (he’s commando most of the day at home).
Buttler Bottoms training pants are perfect for this early stage, with their minky PUL outer and bamboo lining (with a two-layer microfiber fabric in-between) as accidents don’t leak from these training pants. I like to use these when we have to run out for a quick errand, as I am confident we won’t have a mess with Buttler Bottoms trainers
Buttler Bottoms training pants come in a variety of fun designs, made to look like underwear [not diapers]. Each trainer features and adjustable rise, to grow along with your little one.
– great for early potty training stage
– great for nighttime [towards the end of potty training]
– come in a variety of fun prints
– adjustable fit
– trainers don’t have a lot of stretch to them and may be difficult for little ones just learning to pull their pants down
