AppleCheeks Learning Pants
AppleCheeks is a well loved and admired Canadian brand best known for their sized covers/pocket diapers (ranging from Size 1-4) as well as matching accessories. The AppleCheeks Learning Pant is also in the line up of products and has undergone a revision this summer (2017).
The NEW AppleCheeks Learning Pant now features FOUR LAYERS of bamboo cotton blend within the wet zone of the diaper (In pictures this is the area with the pattern). These four layers are sewn on top of the underwear like the brief and topped with a PUL layer in AppleCheeks desirable prints and solids.
What To Love
- Sizing: AppleCheeks Learning Pants sizing is on par!
- Most other training pants I have sized up, but with AppleCheeks I regretted this decision. The Large felt much too big for my lean toddler.
- It is refreshing to have accurate sizing with a training underwear and generous sizing. AppleCheeks knows potty learning toddlers come in a variety of sizes and want comfort when adjusting to underwear.
- Check out more details on sizing here on their website.
- Absorbency: 4 layers of a bamboo blend is super thirsty. These training pants are no joke when it comes to handling the accident.
- Underwear-like feel: AppleCheeks Learning Pants look and feel like underwear (minus the bulky bamboo blend wet zone). The stretchy brief style cut is easy to pull on and off little people.
- Soft Interior: The redesigned NEW AppleCheeks Learning Pants is now a single layer of fabric without openings. I love this because openings and snap in inserts just lead for messy poop clean up.
Areas of Improvement
AppleCheeks went above and beyond by listening to their customers and adapting the Learning Pant to meet the current needs and ditch the awkward microfibre booster. However, not everything is perfect. My biggest dilemma with the AppleCheeks Learning Pant is how long it takes to dry. AppleCheeks Learning Pants needs TWO DRYER CYCLES to dry, and that even with my new HE was washing machine. Drying time is very frustrating. AppleCheeks recommended I toss in some dryer balls, but I still find it takes forever.
I also find the heavy weight of the bamboo material does not hold up well with the softer cotton brief. The hourglass-shaped absorbent material tends to bulge outwards creating an unsightly appearance.
If drying times don’t scare you, and you love AppleCheeks prints and solids, then don’t pass up on these beautiful Learning Pants if you need a little something to encourage the potty learning experience. I love how they look and feel like underwear, especially under clothes! These are super trim under jeans and pants, and you might need to size back down. These worked great for keeping the bed dry during short naps, and when we’ve been brave to try potty trainig outside the house.

I’m trying to restrain myself on buying more diapers since we have more than needed. So now I want to learn which trainers I could be collecting. AppleCheeks seem like a viable option. Thank you for these reviews!
Sarah Christie says
Thanks for the review! It sounds like I may need to give these a try!
M Hobson says
I bought the old style for my son so the review of the new style is interesting. And he hasn’t even had to try them out yet (waiting until after baby brother is born for another big change). Will be nice to try the original out with the Bummis for the second day of potty training.

I have been wanting to try these out since I discovered Applecheeks sold learning pants. They sound amazing. Btw, did you know your daily twitter post to reteet is for your geffen prefolds and boaster and not applecheeks?

Potty training is going very slowly with my grandson. These would come in handy.

I tried out the old AC trainers and found them not absorbent enough for our needs. Excited to try the new ones especially in the new prints!
Becky Kinard says
I was not familiar with applecheeks training pants until I read your review. I like the different prints and appreciated your review. It was very helpful.
Julia S. says
I really appreciate your honest review of the AppleCheeks Learning Pants since we’re working on potty training our little one as well and this would be something that we should definitely check out! ☺️☺️
I think I’d like these better if there were snaps on the sides like some others I’ve seen. It seems very messy to pull off a poo.
I hang my hemp inserts outside in the sun, the dryer will take 3 runs to get them dry. You might try that with these training pants.
Not ready for training yet but like all the reviews for when the time comes.
Kathy Ross says

Susan Climan says
I’ve never tried cloth diapers on my son, but I am these training pants have me intrigued since potty training is on the horizon!
Kathy Pease says
These look great and would be awesome for my granddaughter who is potty training
I think these would be great for my son who’s learning how to use the potty. He’s mostly good but he can have an accident when he gets into playing.
