Do they even make ec pants anymore? I used poquito pants with ds, still have pattern, but no time to make them. We're using gmd workhorses. I need to either buy more of the next size up or I was thinking ec pants. I was going to get snaps on the gmd but they don't fit right till end of size, though I figured snaps would be easier for ec. That's when I remembered ec pants. Trimmer and snap.
Suggestions? I have ten gmd that I can use, but need to figure something out, we're at the end of size small now.

Since you asked directly - Poquito Pants are still available @  PoquitoPants.com - a lower cost pull-on version will be available within the week :wink


I think there's a couple other options that are specifically made for ECers (in tiny sizes) but I have no experience with any of them as they came out after my boys were potty independent when I had put PoquitoPants on hiatus.

We've had excellent luck with the Charlie Banana training pant/swim diapers.  They come in S-XL (small fits like 8-14lbs!), are made with a waterproof exterior and organic cotton liner with terry soaker pad.  They can handle one pee without leaking.  That's all we've used on DS since he was about 4 months old?  We started using them PT when he was 6 weeks old, using cloth diapers as a back-up, but pretty soon went to them exclusively.  DS is now about 22lbs and has been wearing the larges for a couple of months.  (they also come in really cool colors and patterns...)


Good luck!  :)

Farmer, that's interesting you say that. I was looking at swim bottoms thinking, gee, I could make these into trainers smile.gif I have a free pair of some type of swim pant that side snaps, that would work too.
Will check the cb out. None of the others had a soaker that I saw, I was going to sew one in if I found time later. I can't remember for the life of me when we put the kids in trainers, with back up dipes. I made the ec pants, but not a lot of them, so I must have caught a lot of pees! I did more pt ec the second time, but still used the ones I made instead of diapers when he grew into them.
I like the idea of the swim pants for size.
