100% Organic Cotton Training Pants for Toddlers & Babies
Under the Nile Training Pants
Under the Nile is one of my favorite brands of organic cotton training pants. My son switched to wearing cloth training pants full time at 12-months-old. His Under the Nile Training Pants contained misses well and held up through numerous washings.
Sizes: 12-24 Months through 2-4 Years
Material: 100% Organic Egyptian Ribbknit Cotton
Pact Organic Cotton Training Pants
I was so excited to see that Pact Apparel is now offering organic cotton training pants! I already love their organic cotton women's clothing, including their wrap dress. We plan to try these training pants on our daughter when she is big enough to wear them.
Size: 2/3T (32-35 lbs, 35-37" waist)
Material: GOTS Certified 100% Organic Cotton

Hanna Andersson Organic Cotton Training Pants
Our son also wore Hanna Andersson Training Unders. He had plain white ones, but there are some cute prints for girls and boys available now. These training pants did not hold up as well to repeat washings as the Under the Nile Training Pants. I might try them again with our daughter, now that we can wash them more gently.
Size: XS (20-33 lbs) through S (31-48 lbs)
Material: Organic Cotton Ribbknit with absorbent polyester interlining
Komfi Baby Underwear with Soaker Pads
Komfi Baby is a new brand that offers organic cotton underwear for babies and toddlers which can be paired with absorbent soaker pads (sold seperately). When you no longer need training pants, simply remove the soaker pad and you have regular underwear! Komfi Baby underwear/trainers are available in either briefs or boxers.
Size: 6 Months through 2T/3T
Underwear: 100% organic cotton
Soaker pads: Face and back- 70% Bamboo Viscose, 30% Unbleached Organic Cotton. Filling material- Zorb Fibers.
Organic Cotton Training Pants with Waterproof Layer
Imse Vimse Training Pants
My son also wore Imse Vimse Training Pants when we wanted the reassurance of a waterproof layer. The inner layer became a bit rough when sun dried on a line, but they would probably be nice and fluffy if dried in a dryer. The Imse Vimse training pants didn't seem to absorb as much as the Under the Nile training pants.
Sizes: Large (20-26lbs) through Junior (35-44lbs)
Material: One 100% organic cotton knit outer layer, two inner layers of absorbent organic cotton terry, and one layer of polyester with PUL sandwiched between.
Smart Bottoms Lil' Trainer
While researching the best cloth training pants, I came across many recommendations for the Smart Bottoms Lil' Trainer, which contains a waterproof PUL layer. If you have tried the Lil' Trainer, please let me know in the comments what you think.
Sizes: 2T through 4T/5T
Material: Inner: 100% Organic Cotton, Outer: 50% Certified Organic Cotton and 50% Polyester, Wet Zone: Waterproof PUL
Wool Soakers, Skirties & Longies to Wear Over Training Pants
If you are looking for the best all-natural training pants for toddlers, you may want to start with organic cotton training pants and add a wool soaker, skirtie, or longies over the top. Lanolized wool provides a natural waterproof barrier. Since wool is breathable it works wonderfully even in hot climates!
Advantages of layering a wool soaker over organic cotton training pants:
- 100% natural combination;
- Provides a waterproof layer for containing accidents;
- Your toddler can learn to push down the soaker and trainers;
- Allows your toddler to stand while being changed;
- Wool soaker can be reused multiple times;
- Wool is breathable and doesn't trap heat like synthetic PUL does;
- Wool only needs to be washed every 2-4 weeks (or when it gets poop on it).
Truly Charis Interlock Wool Diaper Covers
Truly Charis offers interlock wool bubble shorts, soakers, longies, and skirties. You might be able to snag a used pair in the Truly Charis B/S/T & Chat Facebook group. Truly Charis is also in the testing phase for wool jersey training pants!
Sizes: Newborn - Large (34+ months)
Material: Wool Interlock
