Over the past three years, diapers have been a constant part of my life as a mom. Thankfully, I see my son showing some potty training readiness signs, but I know that we aren’t there just yet. But now that my baby isn’t so much of a baby anymore, diaper changes have turned into a struggle and we’ve needed to find a better option. In the past, I haven’t been the biggest fan of pull-ups or training pants, but I recently discovered Rascal + Friends’ new premium training pants. After testing them out for a few weeks, I’ve been converted. These are the training pants that I believe every parent of wriggly toddlers needs to know about, and after testing them for a couple of weeks, our team agrees.

What We Love About Them

They use clean materials.

The first thing that made us happy to see was how Rascal+ Friends uses the safest materials. Their diapers and training pants do not contain lotions, fragrances, or any other nasty chemicals such as elemental chlorine or latex. They only use water-based inks, and their diapers are cruelty-free and vegan! Certified by Dermatest, their diapers and training pants are dermatologically tested to be safe for sensitive skin. Learning all of this made us even more excited to test out the Rascal + Friends premium training pants. We were happy to discover some unexpected, great features!

Diaper changes are now faster and easier for me.

If you’ve changed a toddler’s diaper recently, you know how difficult it can be. They are strong and wriggle all over the place. My big, squirmy toddler boy never wants to pause or stay still, making diaper changes a nightmare. What I really love about Rascal + Friends training pants is that they’ve made diaper changes faster and easier for me, resulting in a happier mom and toddler.

I love how the sides easily tear, so no matter what is inside that diaper, I can handle it quickly with him standing up or sitting down. Other training pants require the parent to pull the dirty pants down and can make a big mess. With the easy-tear sides, these can be removed the same as a traditional diaper. After cleaning him up, my son can pull up the stretchy waistband on a new pair of training pants and be off to play. Speedy, mess-free changes and great fit make this mama very happy!

The resealable tab is genius!

One thing that I have hated about pull-ups and training pants in the past is how messy things can be if you have to change a poopy diaper. It’s evident that Rascal + Friends had this same dilemma because they have added a resealable tab on the back of their training pants. This tab makes poopy diaper changes so much better. Parents can roll the dirty pants up and fasten the tab to hold the mess in. This is one of my favorite features!

They don’t leak.

Toddlers can get into some wacky and crazy positions. With all of that movement, it can cause some diapers to leak. I’ve experienced this myself with my son wearing certain brands of diapers, but I am happy to see that we haven’t had leaks, daytime or nighttime with Rascal + Friends!

One of our team members, Jordan, also tested out the Rascal + Friends training pants. She said, “My son is extremely curvy. We have had trouble finding a training pant that completely covers his cheeks and does not leak or smell. Rascal + Friends training pants checked all the boxes for us. They are even more affordable than some brands we were testing, without compromising quality. I feel good knowing he is comfortable throughout his day.”

This brings me to the next detail that we love.

They are affordable.

We’ve all heard the old phrase, “you get what you pay for.” But we don’t want to have to spend a fortune on diapers or training pants that don’t contain chemicals and that function properly. When I realized how affordable Rascal + Friends diapers and training pants were, I was thrilled for all parents! They make affordable products that don’t compromise on quality and performance. Packs start at $7.97, and they offer their Try Us, Love Us Guarantee, which allows first-time customers to receive a new size or refund if they don’t love the product. Basically, you have nothing to lose!

When to Start Using Training Pants

Another great thing about Rascal + Friends’ training pants is that your child doesn’t have to be potty training (or anywhere close to potty training) to use their pants. Since their training pants have the same absorbency and leak-preventing features as their diapers, their training pants can be used just like a diaper!

The Rascal + Friends training pants were obviously developed as a solution for wriggly rascals who don’t want to lie down for a change, just like mine. This is a big reason why we have converted to these training pants before we begin potty training our son.

Where Can You Find Rascal + Friends Training Pants?

You can get Rascal + Friends premium diapers, training pants, and sensitive wipes on and in select Walmart stores throughout Texas.
