Little Beetle Learner Review First Impression

Little Beetle Learner (Organic Cotton Velour Training Pant)

These are Better For Babies, Inc early potty learning training pants. The concept behind this trainer is incredibly appealing to me. They use two layers of  fair trade organic velour cotton, with a third layer tucked into the wet zone no PUL or other waterproofing layer. I search for fair trade and local made products in general to reduce my carbon footprint. However the no PUL does worry me a bit. I'm nervous about the absence of the waterproof layer on a early trainee.

My first impression of the actual trainer in my hand is not the best. They are a very thick trainer, they look like a fancy dress and I am not excited about the snaps on the sides and their placement so close to the edge of the fabric. I may have an irregular one??? I washed the trainer in Eco Sprout detergent that is safe for cloth diapers, free from dyes, brighteners, enzymes, phosphates, & is SLS free. The velour pilled just a little bit. Keep in mind this is my first impression and I have yet to give it a fair chance.

Declan's first impression was excited it was yellow his favorite color. He chose this trainer above the others to try first.` It even was tried on his favorite bunny. He however did call it a diaper and argued that this is not big boy undies.

The Little Beetle purchased is size Medium. 2/3 years 24 - 35+. They seem to run small. I think I should have got a large for my 30 pound 2 1/2 year old. It was hard for me to pull up and down and Declan was not able to at all. As you can see Declan's tummy protruded over the front of them.

Declan did pee in them as I expected. The pee came right through on to his pants and on to the ground. What I wasn't expecting while I was taking these photos Declan went into our bathroom and pooped.  Sonny our four year old came running out saying poop was on Declan's fingers. I walked in the bathroom to look in the potty and stepped in his poop that was on our bathmat. After cleaning his hands and my foot Declan sat on the potty, tooted and peed just alittle more. He got a big hug and a bath.

I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo of the open trainer but the back snaps on the right are a smaller cut than the ones on the right. This make me really think I got on irregular one now. I wonder if the store I got them at will take them back after they have been used.?
