Blueberry Trainers *Review*

Not too long ago, I introduced you to Lisa at Mother Earth Baby when I reviewed the FLIP disposable inserts.  You can read that review here.  If you have read that review, you know that I think that it is such a great company and that Lisa is absolutely wonderful!  When she sent me the inserts to review, she also sent me a pair of Blueberry Trainers to review.  I was super excited!  It just so happened that Maggie was on her potty training kick at the time and was doing awesome, so I loved having some underwear to put her in.  

Mother Earth Baby is family owned by Lisa and Nathan.  There are currently two storefront locations, one in North Syracuse, and one in Oswego, NY.  Mother Earth Baby offers a full selection of cloth diapers and natural baby products.  If you are in the area and interested but need more information, you can set up a personal consultation to find out what is best for you.   They also offer classes and workshops, and recently added a baby registry and a cloth diaper service to serve Central New York.  If you aren’t in the area, shop the website for some fluffy goodness!  If you have questions, call or email with your questions – they are happy to help you!  They have been using cloth diapers with their family for the last 12 years and still have one kiddo in cloth diapers.  They take great pride that most of the products they sell have also been used on their own children so they can share their personal experience with you. 
 If you have a potty trainer, or are going to be getting to that stage, read on!  Blueberry Trainers are training pants that feel and look like real underwear.  Not only that, they are adorable!  I still can’t decide which ones are my favorite – my daughter is potty training, but I love the traffic and dinosaurs prints – ahh, when the little guy is ready!  

These trainers have an inner lining made with cotton velour, and a hidden layer of super absorbent microterry and PUL.  The waist, leg bands and outer layer are 50 % cotton and 50 %  polyester.  The hidden soaker is 100 % polyester and the inner lining is 80 % cotton and 20 % polyester.  And…they are made in the USA!  Because these trainers are only partially waterproof, they will contain small accidents, but are not designed for naptime or overnight. 
Blueberry trainers are available in 3 different sizes.  
Small fits 22-28 pounds
 Medium fits 25-35 pounds
 Large fits 32-42 pounds. 

Maggie is just a little peanut, and barely even hits the 22 pound mark.  We received the Blueberry swirls in a small to review.  I was a little worried about how they would fit Maggie since she was barely at 22 pounds, but I was pleasantly surprised that they fit her great!  The Blueberry trainers are quite soft.  They definitely feel like regular underwear.  When she does pee in these underwear, they hold the pee pretty well, but she can immediately feel that she is peeing and will tell me uh oh!  That is important.  I want her to feel it if she is wet.  If she pees a lot though, these underwear won’t hold it all, which is the point! 

Because these look like real underwear, they should pull up and down like real underwear, right?  And they do!  Maggie just turned 2, and dressing and undressing isn’t something that comes easily to her just yet but once I showed her how to hook her thumbs inside the waistband, she was able to pull them on and off mostly by herself.

I love how cute they are!  The pattern we have would be great for a boy or a girl!  They are so soft, I would even wear these underwear!   They are not waterproof, so if you want complete protection, you will need a cover over these.  Even when she had a stinky mess in these, the underwear contained the poo – very important, am I right?  They do need to be pulled down, so it can be a bit of a mess if they poop in these.  It isn’t too bad, unless your child does what Maggie did and wiggle and jump and protest until she steps in it – ugh! 

If you are looking for some trainers for your little potty trainer, these are perfect!  Of the trainers we have tried so far, these are my favorites because they are so similar to regular underwear and helps them learn their skill of pulling their underwear up and down all by themselves.
