My son is 2 and his daycare is requesting that he has training pants for use. I tried using the Seventh Generation training pants today and it created a huge mess. Unlike diapers, these dont open on the sides. They only pull up and on. Well DS went potty in them this morning and there was not way of getting them off without pulling them down and, well, potty got dragged all the way down his legs.

Am I missing something?? Shouldnt they open on the sides? Maybe there is a reason they dont, but I cant seem to understand how to use them without the potential for stuff getting all over him. I dont want to use huggies/pampers do the chemicals in them. His skin does not take well to those types of products.

Any advice for a first time potty training mom would be great. Thanks. :-)

They're disposable, right? If they are messy, just tear the sides to take them off. They pull on and off so the baby can learn to operate his own pants, not to make a big mess. If you don't need to pull them back up (like if they're dirty) go ahead and rip them.

Ha, okay flagged the spam post. Moving on...

OP-- ugh, I remember being in a similar boat when DD got sick and went in her panties. Messy!

Tear em' off! They tear very easily along the seams on the sides (we used them as DD was potty learning about a year ago, and we weren't going through enough diapers to justify washing them, it would be like three diapers in a wash, or washing every two weeks, ew). I remember being annoyed I had to take off DD's pants and shoes to change her, to get a new one on, which was more annoying than a diaper, but it was a short transition. Good luck!
