Those of you who read my Potty Woes post know I am facing some challenges with my 2.5 year old when it comes to cloth diapers, trainers, and potty training. He often refuses his diapers, but isn’t interested in the potty chair yet either. Regular underwear do not offer enough protection to my poor furniture, so I have been interested in some undies that are more like training pants. The trainers at Bubby Bums Children’s Boutique are a great compromise. Bubby Bums sells several products including cloth diapers, hair accessories, and children’s clothing, but their specialty is training pants! Bubby bums is a small, mom owned business in North Texas. All of their trainers are 100% cotton and made in the USA!
I have been using both the briefs and boxers on my toddler for a few weeks and these trainers are not only cute, but a great alternative to bulky trainers or flimsy underwear.
These briefs have no elastic on the leg openings, making them comfortable and easy to slide up and down.
The Bubby Bums training pants have extra layers of cotton sewn in the wet zone (crotch) for absorbing leakage for those little ones who don’t quite make it to the potty chair. Since these trainers are 100% cotton, they are breathable and let your toddler feel dampness to encourage them to stay dry. The briefs are covering without being bulky and are great as big-boy undies with some added protection. The briefs are available in both boy and girl prints and retail for only $4.95!
Bubby Bums also has a really cute style of trainers they call Beefed Up Boxers.
The Beefed Up Boxers are like boxer briefs with the same cotton layers within the wet zone. This pair is the Wild ones print. Aren’t they adorable?
What I love about the boxer style is they come in boy and girl options and since they do not have seams and leg holes near the bum, they are really comfortable for your toddler during long stretches in the car seat or stroller. The Beefed Up Boxers come in a large variety of colors or prints! They come in sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T and retail for just $6.75.
Bubby Bums training pants are a great day time trainer. They offer just enough absorbancy for a small accident while still resembling big kid underwear. These two particular styles are not waterproof, so I would not use them for overnight or naps until your child is mostly potty trained. Bubby Bums does have some waterproof styles as well, if you would like more protection. My toddler is on the thin size so the 3T was a little big on him, so if you are debating between two sizes I would go with the smaller size. These are high quality cotton and do not shrink up in the dryer. In addition to being comfortable, they are easy for your toddler to remove them without help. Whenever my son wets his trainers, he takes them off and puts them in the laundry all by himself!
If you like natural fibers and prefer products made in the USA, these are nice trainers to have. Plus, the prices simply cannot be beat! You can purchase most Bubby Bums trainers for $4.95 -$7.50! That is a far cry from the $20 trainers other manufacturers offer! Bubby Bums currently ships within the United States and is working on expanding. Canadian customers may contact them for a shipping quote.
