{Sponsor Spotlight & Review} Thanks Mama & EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants


I love family-owned stores, and Thanks Mama is one of them! This cloth diaper and natural parenting store prioritizes your children's health by offering tons of natural products. They also have amazing customer service which is important to them. Throughout my communication with the Thanks Mama team for this review, I felt like I was just casually talking with a girlfriend! Super friendly and personable, and that is so very important to me! The Thanks Mama Team is full of parents who use many of the the products they sell themselves, so they have a vast wealth of personal knowledge and experience to share with and help their customers.

Thanks Mama doesn't just carry cloth diapers and trainers either. They have baby bedding, skin care for babies, baby gear, products for mom, maternity, nursery gear, toys, and plenty of accessories! You can even Shop by Brand and check out the sale section too. I love the selection of wraps and carriers too. It's a one-stop shop! You can also just use the search box if you are short on time and sort of know what you need. With so many cloth diaper stores out there, what makes Thanks Mama extra special? A whole bunch of reasons actually!

- Huge selection of the top major cloth diaper brands
- Frequent promotions and sales, right on the homepage!
- FREE Shipping on orders over $60
- 90-day Easy Returns
- Earn Rewards Dollars on every purchase
- Buy Safe with Confidence - Inspected and Monitored
- Price Guarantee
- Ship WorldWide!

With a price guarantee, you probably don't have much reason to shop anywhere else. Thanks Mama also has one of the largest Training Pants categories I seen too!

 
Thanks Mama was so kind in sending me a pair of EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants to review for the upcoming Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop event. EcoPosh is the eco-friendly brand from Rumparooz and these certainly surpassed my expectations! These are a beautiful burnt orange color, and this is a size medium which fits 35-45 pounds. It's a very earthy tone of orange that I love and so are the other 4 colors available!

EcoPosh Training Pants feature an outer color made from recycled water bottles and organic cotton. Inside there are 2 absorbent inner layers made from bamboo, organic cotton and polyester, and also a hidden layer of biodegradable waterproof TPU material. Above you can see the extra sewn-in layer under the brown through the wetzone in the front. This extra protection also continues up to the top of the backside too. These are super soft inside and out, so no complaints here about comfort. I'm loving the eco-friendliness with the reusable factor (just like cloth diapers), but also the recycled water bottles material that is used. Add to that the organic cotton and bamboo, and these are a winning product all around!

These also have a wonderfully wide waist band for ultimate comfort too. If you look closely at the trainers while they are inside out, you can see that the seams are serged together to almost create it's own gusset around the legs. So at least if there is an accident, it will mostly be contained and soak the entire inside before leaking. 


These are VERY trim, and fit Buddy extremely well! They've quickly become my favorite pair, and if they're washed, they are the ones I grab first. They have great coverage on the rear and also are nice and wide on the sides. Buddy is able to pull these up and down like regular underwear without any help from me at all which is super convenient.
EcoPosh are not fully waterproof according to the description, but unfortunately this feature was not tested by my little guy.....we seem to have turned a corner with potty training recently! Yes, at 3 1/2 we're finally, finally getting it and staying dry most of the time (even most naps and some full nights too!). These will provide enough protection for your child to dribble and run to the potty, or have a small accident. Any more then that and you'll probably have wet pants.

The only downside to these that I can see is if you are early in the potty training process and your child is still having very frequent accidents, these may not work for you. With the bamboo and organic these should be pretty fast absorbing, but since these are not fully waterproof these are definitely best for a child that is at the end of potty training and going into underwear most the time. There is a recommendation to use a Rumparooz microfiber newborn 6R soaker if you need extra absorbency, but for Buddy he has never done well with microfiber directly on his skin like that. Either way, these are perfect for our current stage in the potty training process and we'll continue to use them until we are completely accident free for a while!
