Open seat pants are great for potty training and/or the current trend in “Elimination Communication (EC)”. You can find information on EC and how to do it by searching the web. Even babies don’t actually want to soil themselves and give cues as to when they need to go (it’s true!). Learn the cues and lose diapers way earlier than you thought possible! EC is also a great way to become very in touch with your child’s needs.
Note that the FRONT of these pants has the lower/smaller crotch opening. The back goes up higher.
