Evelyn just told me she needed to use the potty, then she actually did- number 1 and number 2. Hooray! That means she gets a jelly bean AND a cookie. It also means she gets to try out her new panties.
I’ve really been frustrated in my search for underwear smaller than size 2T. There are cloth diaper companies that sell training pants in the 18 month size, but they are expensive and still too big.
I’ve finally found my solution! Evelyn has a ton of bloomers/diaper covers that she doesn’t wear. With a onesie or tights under her dress, it seems superfluous. So I took an extra burp cloth, folded it, and stitched it into her bloomers. Viola! 2 minute training pants, in her size. (Eek! My brain was broken and I forgot to give credit where credit is due when I originally posted this earlier today- here is my inspiration for this project.)
And if I didn’t already have several pairs of bloomers, this tutorial from Dana at Made works great, too. I can make several pairs in about an hour. The extra room for a diaper leaves the perfect amount of space for adding a burp cloth. Folded layers of flannel would work just as well, I’m sure.
Now, if only potty training was that easy…
