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 for toddlers. My oldest son switched to wearing cloth training pants full time at 12-months-old. These Under the Nile Training Pants contained misses well and held up through numerous washings. They were a bit loose around his legs.

Sizes: 12-24 Months through 2-4 Years

Material: 100% Organic Egyptian Cotton

Weeking organic cotton training pants

WeeKing Training Pants

WeeKing offers organic cotton training pants that are small enough even for babies practicing elimination communication! These natural trainers are also great for Montessori potty learning. The wide ribbed waistband makes them super comfortable. I used these with my third baby and they ran a little small, so you may want to size up.

Sizes: 0-3M through 4 years

Material: Outer: 95% Organic Cotton, 5% Spandex; Inner: 100% Organic Cotton

Earth Baby Clothing Training Pants

I purchased these Earth Baby Clothing organic training pants for my daughter when she was around one-year-old. I knew that the rise might be too high on her so I requested a custom rise of 14", which fit her perfectly. I was very happy with the quality of the first pair, so I ordered two more with the regular measurements and just folded down the waistband. That way she will be able to wear them longer. These trainers are the first ones we reach for in our stash!

Update: Size 2/3T with standard rise still fit her at 3-years-old. She likes to wear them as regular underwear because of the color and design.

Size: 2/3T

Material: 100% Organic Cotton

Komfi Baby Underwear with Soaker Pads

Komfi Baby offers organic cotton underwear for babies and toddlers which can be paired with absorbent soaker pads (sold separately). When you no longer need training pants, simply use them without the soaker pad and you have regular underwear! Komfi Baby underwear/trainers are available in either briefs or boxers. Receive 10% off your first order from Komfi Baby with coupon code ECPEESYKOMFI.

Size: 6 Months through 2T/3T


Underwear: 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. They were previously made with cotton for the absorbent portion, but are now made with polyester interlining.

Size: XS (20-33 lbs) through S (31-48 lbs)

Material: Organic Cotton with absorbent polyester interlining


Raised by Faith Cotton Training Pants

Ashley offers cotton training pants through her Raised by Faith shop. She practiced elimination communication with her babies and was unable to find training pants that fit, so she started sewing her own. The hidden absorbency is 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. The selection of cotton lycra fabrics for the outer portion varies.

Size: 12 Months (Hips 19", Waist 18") through Size 4 (Hips 23", Waist 22")

Material: Cotton lycra and two hidden layers of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. Organic cotton lycra is sometimes available. Check the Raised by Faith Chat group for current fabric offerings.


Organic Cotton Training Pants with Waterproof Layer

Charlie Banana Extraordinary Training Pants

Charlie Banana offers both pull-on style and side snapping training pants. They are a trim option with a little bit of absorbency. I really like that the lining that touches the skin is organic cotton. These reusable training pants worked well when we were traveling with our EC'd baby.

Sizes: Small (10-14 lbs) through X-Large (27-55 lbs)

Material: Shell-Face : 100% Polyester, Back : Polyurethane / Lining : 100% Organically Grown Cotton / Inner layer : 88% Biconstituent Fiber (82% Polyester 18% Nylon) 12% Polyester

Smart Bottoms Lil' Trainer

The Smart Bottoms Lil' Trainer is an adorbale option if you are looking for training pants with organic cotton lining and a hidden layer of PUL. They are very low-rise and also have small leg holes, so they fit babies who are practicing elimination communication. These don't hold in the wetness as well as other brands of waterproof training pants.

Sizes: 2T through 4T/5T

Material: Inner: 100% Organic Cotton, Outer: 50% Certified Organic Cotton and 50% Polyester, Wet Zone: Waterproof PUL

Imse Vimse Organic Cotton Training Pants

We used a previous version of Imse Vimse organic cotton training pants years ago for our son. This new version is thicker and more absorbent. I love the prints. If we were home in the USA I would order some of these to try for our daughter!

Sizes: L (20-26 lbs) - JR (35-44 lbs)

Material: 3 layers of absorbent 100% Organic Cotton and 1 layer of waterproof recycled PUL

Wool Soakers, Shorties, Skirties & Longies to Wear Over Training Pants

Wool Soaker Worn 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).

WoolUps Soakers to Wear over Training Pants

Tiny Undies offers WoolUps pull-on covers to wear over cloth training pants. You can pair them over Tiny Trainers, which are 100% cotton, or one of the organic cotton options on this list.

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)

Disana Organic Merino Wool Cover

    I use the trainers made by tiny undies and they are FANTASTIC.

    We started using the 12 month size when my first baby was 5 months old, and they fit great, and they even have a smaller size if your baby is small or you want undies even earlier. I like that they fit nicely *around* the belly (so many brands seem to cut into their little tummies, or fall down), and they contain a full pee so that it is definitely still noticeable, but does not get on everything and often doesn’t even wet their pants even without an additional waterproof layer. I think they might not be certified organic, but they are 100% cotton and natural / chemical free. I like the undyed version, but they also have some colors.

    Yep, Tiny Trainers are a great option if you are looking for cotton trainers and don’t mind that they aren’t organic. Tiny Trainers are my top recommendation for those looking for super small sizes, since they start from 6-12M. You can get $5 off your order with coupon code ECPEESY10.

    Another source of wool soakers and longies that was recommended to me after publishing this list is 6 Bags Full on Etsy ( They have some cute options, as well!

    I see other training pants on Amazon, why do you not recommend them? Are they not small enough or organic or do they fall apart from washing? They average $4.40 each while the ones you list are around $13 each

    Hi Ellie,
    This particular list only includes organic cotton training pants. I try to support established brands with consistent quality that I can trust. There are many imported and rebranded products sold on Amazon these days, and sometimes the sellers are not even fully aware of what they are selling. I tested as many brands as I could, but with a new one popping up everyday, it would be impossible to test them all. If you find a different brand that you like, feel free to let us know in the comments. For more options, you can see my cloth training pants comparison review which includes 17 styles of training pants:
