Potty Party! Custom Made, Waterproof Training Pants for Boys and Girls {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

Congratulations to the winner, Tylerpants!
58Powered by RANDOM.ORG

These training pants are hands down one of the top potty training products I've reviewed! In previous posts I have talked about the difficult time we had finding potty training pants that fit well and were waterproof. I did eventually find a store bought pair that did the job well, but I always love things that are hand made and custom fit. If something is custom fit, it's made just for your child rather than the "average" child of the same age. After all, not many kids (or adults!) are "average" in every way! I wasn't really sure that I would actually find what I was looking for, but after searching online through several different stores, I finally stumbled across babybayrs! What immediately caught my eye about her training pants was that they were advertised to be waterproof and custom fit, and they were so stinkin' cute! EG has so many summer dresses, and I needed something that would be practical (in that it had to be waterproof to contain potty training messes) and stylish under her precious little outfits. These training pants were the best of both worlds! So cute, and definitely waterproof. I also needed some pants that would be comfortable for her to wear. The first pairs we tried were so tight around her legs that she would have a mark every time she wore them. It was awful and those didn't last too long in our house! Also, many training pants we tried were so big and bulky that I could hardly get her clothes on over them! So, you see, I obviously had very high expectations for my "ideal" training pants. Luckily, babybayrs came to the rescue and offered me a pair of custom fit training pants for review. They had every characteristic I was looking for and come at a great price of $12 a pair (not bad for something handmade and custom!). Once we received them for review, I was not disappointed. They honestly met all of my expectations and more! I could probably write a book on how much I love them...truly.

First of all, I had to take all of EG's measurements that would be needed for the pants (i.e. waist, thigh, etc.) so that they would fit her perfectly. I had high hopes that I would love the pants and wanted to go ahead and order an extra pair. However, babybayrs suggested that I try the review pair first to make sure that the fit was exactly right. I appreciated that she was so concerned with making sure everything was perfect and that I was a happy customer. The pair actually did fit quite well and they worked like a charm, though we made some minor adjustments to the leg measurements on the second pair (that I did actually end up ordering :). The first thing that struck me was the quality craftmanship of the pants. I could easily see that they were well put together and would last a long time. The inside lining is 100% cotton that was very soft and is what allows your child to feel the wetness during training (super important!). There is an insert of multiple layers of terry fabric for excellent absorption, and the outer layer is made from waterproof polyurethane laminate (PUL). These babies will NOT leak! But, not only that, they seemed so comfortable for EG to wear and there was no tight elastic on any part of her body. All of the openings are wrapped with the cotton fabric so there is nothing anywhere to rub, irritate, or squeeze your little one. The final touch on the pants is the cute little design sewn onto the front - little flowers for girls, and little puppy dogs for the boys. They come in different colors (pink, blue, white) so that you have the perfect pair for your little one to wear under anything. We have a pink and white pair (pictured above) and they are worn just about every day. I wash them every night and they have held up beautifully. The picture above was taken today, and you see how nice they still look after all of that washing and drying! I am so excited to share these with you, and one lucky reader will get their own custom pair of training pants to try for themselves. I am certain you'll want more!

  48. I came across these pants on etsy. You said that you wash them daily and I'm wondering about drying. Do they take forever and a day to dry? I have some Imsy Vimsy pants (which are *not* waterproof) that take an eternity to dry because of all the layers.
