Best Bottom makes some amazing products. I’m still thoroughly smitten with the Best Bottom AIO; however, my toddler is moving on up and as we move from diapers to underwear we’ve been embracing the chaos of potty training. This potty learning journey hasn’t come easily, but it’s given me a chance to just explore the various cloth training pants on the market including Best Bottom Training Pants.

Best Bottom Training Pants
The Best Bottom Training Pant is sized, pull on underpants with snap-in inserts. The Interior is made of Best Bottom waterproof material, with a cotton exterior. With a classic TPU interior, the insides of these can easily be wiped clean if needed and reused between accidents. These mostly look like underwear crossed with plastic pants.
At the time of writing this, there is no other potty training pant on the market with a similar design – maybe the Flip Training Pant because of the adjustable insert, and maybe the Super Undies Bedwetting Pants because of the general concept.
Front and back snaps and flaps can be found inside the diaper giving the user the ability to snap in absorbency of your choice. A package comes with a set of three inserts with a feel wet topping. These are essentially the small microfibre inserts with a cotton top layer.
Why I Use Them?
I use the Best Bottom Training Pant when I need to adjust my absorbency.
If I’m going somewhere and I want to try potty training but I’m hesitant and my own capacity to remember (because somebody doesn’t talk and tell me these things), then I add a Buttons XL Hemp Insert and call it a day.
The snaps work with just about anything.
Sometimes I use the hemp/bamboo Large Funky Fluff Insert too. I would use Best Bottom inserts, but I don’t have anything but the small microfibre.
Why I don’t Use Them?
I don’t use them because my kid still poops and I find these training pants are especially unforgiving of a poop. There’s something about cleaning poop out the layers that just makes me #nothanks. Because of the tighter fit (maybe I have the wrong size), it also makes for a poopy mess. Can you tell I’ve had a few poopy nightmares? Instead, I favour the side snaps of the Omaiki Training Pant.
Also, I’m not so good at the rinse and repeat nature of these training pants. While the concept is amazing, replacing the insert after soiled isn’t something that is convenient for my lifestyle. Surprising, I know, because I typically use a cloth diaper cover and prefold for my day-to-day when diapering and just switch out the prefolds.
However, with potty training, I tend to reach for more underwear style comfy cozy styles (like the Thirsties Trainer, or Applecheeks Learning Pants) and find the Best Bottom Training Pant doesn’t make the cut in my routine.
If you want adjustable absorbency, then the Best Bottom Training Pant is one of the best choices for reusable cloth trainign pants for you.
However, with limited sizing and often sold in bundles, this might be challenging.
The Best Bottom Training Pant is also one of the cheaper, more affordable cloth training pants on the market because it offers a reusable feature when a child soils the insert. This unique characteristic (also found in the Flip Training Pant), allows you to use the same pull on style garment multiple times in a day and thus cut down on the overall stash size need to conquer potty training.
