Seventh Generation Training Pants (Includes Giveaway!)

Esther is potty training ...sort of, kind of.  I really wanted her out of diapers and tried putting her in panties one day.  After cleaning up a few messes we were doing okay, but by the third day she would just cry when she peed.  She also happened to run a fever that day and felt miserable, ending our panties trial.  I put the panties away for now, but I do sit her on the potty several times a day.  I figure its a good start and she will catch on more when she is ready.

Because her cloth diapers are pretty worn out, we've been using disposable diapers when we leave the house.  She is at the point where she pees a TON and ends up soaking through a cloth diaper fairly often.  If we're home I just change her clothes, but that is harder to plan for when we are in the car.


I was excited to have the chance to try out Seventh Generation's disposable training pants.  At this point, they are great for Esther.  She still needs the absorbency, but wants to be able to sit on the potty and pull up her diaper by herself.  She likes wearing them and we call them her "silly guy" diapers because of the Lorax on them.  The stretchy tear away sides are nice for when the diaper is messy.  The training pants have an absorbent core made with more renewable plant-based materials.  I also really like that Seventh Generation Free and Clear baby products do not contain chlorine, fragrance, petroleum-based lotions or latex, and are hypo-allergenic.


Seventh Generation recently decided to feature the Lorax on their diapers as a reminder of the environmental message of sustainability.  The pictures on the diapers are a bit hard to see, and the book is over Esther's head.  We are big Dr Seuss fans around here though, so her older sisters have enjoyed reading The Lorax.  It has a great message and an inspiring ending.  You can even register for a free The Lorax themed scrapbook with the purchase of three Free and Clear diaper products, while supplies last.


Seventh Generation is giving one of you a prize package containing one new Free and Clear diaper product and a copy of The Lorax book!  To enter you may do any or all of the following:

- leave a comment letting me know you follow my blog via email or Google Friend Connect
- leave a comment letting me know you are a fan of One Little Word She Knew on Facebook
- leave a comment letting me know: Which Seventh Generation Free and Clear diaper products are you most interested in trying with your family in an effort to be more eco-conscious?

You have a total of three possible entries.  The giveaway will end on March 9th at midnight (unless I'm having a baby that day!).  Be sure to leave an email address so that I can contact you.  :) *Now closed.  Congrats, Heather.*

Disclosure: The Seventh Generation Diapers prize pack, product, and information have been provided by Seventh Generation through MyBlogSpark.

  15. I'm at the same stage you are in potty training my not-so-interested 2-year old. I'm hoping the Free & Clear Training pants would be just what my son needs to motivate him, yet keep the inevitable accidents manageable. Thanks for the chance to win!
