Training Pants: A Review

My daughter is 18 months old, and in the very early stages of potty training. In the past, my first avenue of buying an item, such as training pants, would have been to go to the local department store, and browse their sales racks. Times have changed for me though, I put more value into the quality of the items that I'm purchasing for her, especially when it comes to diapering needs. It makes more sense to me, to spend a little more money on something that will last not only through the use of my daughter, but also something that I may be able to use in the event that we have future children.

My search for training pants started on Etsy. There were numerous listings to sort through, and some were store bought trainers that were embelished with pictures (that wasn't what I was looking for), others were handmade trainers that looked bulky. After searching and sorting numerous different ways, there was one Etsy seller that stood out to me. That seller was QTBunns.

QTBunns trainers are sold in a number of different sizes, and patterns. They didn't appear bulky in the pictures, the descriptions told me exactly what they were made of and how they were made. I was excited!! I ordered a pair to try them. I'm always reluctant to order a large lot at first, for fear that they won't meet my expectations (I had this happen to me when I was ordering cloth diapers from another site, and ended up throwing them away).

A few days later the training pants that I ordered arrived in the mail. I was so excited to open the package!! I showed them to my daughter, and she seemed excited about her new big girl undies as well! I tried them on her, and she wore them for a few hours, made a couple of trips to the big girl potty, and all was well! THEN... it happened! She peed in her new training pants.

How did I know that she had peed in them? I can assure you that it wasn't because these trainers leaked!! They were amazing! The trainer absorbed the pee, yet my daughter was able to feel the wetness and informed me that she had peed. 5 Stars to QTBunns!!

Since then, we've had a couple more accidents, and the trainer has held up wonderfully. They wash really well, and have held up great in the two weeks that we have been using them (I've since ordered more!!).

In short, I LOVE these trainers!! I WILL buy more!! I'm now one of QTBunns biggest fans!

Here's what I LOVE about these trainers:

  1. They aren't excessively bulky, and they fit snuggly.
  2. They're absorbent enough to contain accidents, yet allow my daughter to realize that she's wet.
  3. They come in ADORABLE patterns.
  4. They are all handmade, with great skill.
  5. The seams, and stitching are all well done, and are sturdy.
  6. They come in varying sizes so that you can order the ones that are perfect for your child.
  7. The seller/creator is AMAZING! She's wonderful to work with, very considerate, and a pleasure to deal with!
