My New Underwear

Yep. Everybody look at it. I've been wanting a pair like this for a long time. Woodjie is pretty much dry all the time, so long as one of his caregivers (me, D or Patrick) remembers to take him to the bathroom regularly. He doesn't ASK to go potty, but he can go and get a Smartie if he's dry. Poop? Another matter entirely. It bothers me immensely to keep shelling out a fortune on pull-ups, and even the largest diapers are too small and mark his hips. Underwear and that sort of thing is a messy proposition as one must pull it down (eew, smeary!) or cut it off the sides and toss out (dangerous/expensive). So... I am purchasing from Etsy for the first time. If you are interested in buying something for your older child, I'd suggest a custom order from diapermonster. She has worked with me and we've gotten down to a size/design I think we'll be very happy with. See the snaps? Mine doesn't have the waterproof lining so that we can get pretty close to "real" underwear as reasonably possible. What do you think?

  2. NICE UNDERWEAR!

    Actually, I really do like the idea. I am in the process of potty training four little ones right (thankfully they're not usually all here at the same time) and these would be really nice sometimes.

  4. I love them! And the snaps are a such a great idea. I have some training-undies for my girls that are thicker than regular undies, but they are just that, no snaps or anything. Gross for the #2!

  8. Wow, I love those! I hate potty training. Eek. You would think about 6 kids it wouldn't bother me but I've thrown out many underwears because I was grossed out.
