Does anyone have flip-front pants like <a href="http://www.ecawarebaby.com/products.html" target="_blank">these</a>? Has anyone tried making any? They seem like a pretty brilliant solution to me, and I'm particularly interested since soon we'll be growing out of the infant dipes, which were kinda unwieldy and restricting anyway. I'll probably collect me some grandmas and try making some anyway, but it'd sure be good to have more to go on than a couple of images. The ecaWare pants look great, but they're not available yet, and I'm sure I couldn't afford more than one or two anyway.

The image doesn't make it clear to me how they work - is it just that they have a waistband to stay on, but otherwise are like an ordinary Aplix all-in-one diaper?

Yeah, mostly. Did you scroll over the image? It shows an open shot when you do...there's a scrunchie-ish band across the stomach that snaps on one side (good if you don't want to pull off a poopy diaper or don't want to pull over babylegs, etc.). That's one design possibility, although I've been trying to think of others, for thoroughness' sake.

I don't get it. Seems like it would be only useful for boys, not girls, since it opens in the front. And you'd have to know in advance if they are going to pee <i>and</i> poop or just pee. Right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

Actually, the WHOLE front panel of the trainer flips down, revealing all the 'potty parts'. So it would work for a boy or girl, a pee or a poo! There are bigger pictures here:<br><a href="http://www.ecawarebaby.com/testers.html" target="_blank">http://www.ecawarebaby.com/testers.html</a>

I don't think so...you should be able, based on the picture, to just fold the whole thing back...the only attachment point, when it's open, is the waistband. Basically, it'd be like you're taking it off, except you don't need anyplace to put it down and it's still right there in position when you're done. It'd need to be held out of the way, so it'd work better for younger babies, I guess maybe. I figure it'd be the same as with sleeper feet or whatever, that I just lift up and pin against my stomach while I'm holding her.

They look pretty cool. Are they absorbent at all in case of leaks? I couldn't tell from the pictures or the description, but I would guess not.

Why wouldn't they be absorbent? To me, they just look like all-in-one diaper with an extra waistband - plus the description says that the outside layer is waterproof, and the inside is two layers of sherpa (I am assuming cotton) and one of hemp, or three layer of sherpa - that should definitely hold one elimination at least.

Thanks! Guess I should have read more closely. I couldn't really tell from the picture.

We have a pair of the proto-types. They're cool. They don't absorb a ton, but they fit nicely and are easy to use. In fact they're my favorites to use, but we always miss eventually and then have to wait for them to get washed..
