My big five and a half year old still wears nappies at night but with pampers 6+ I still have to wash sheets every other day and it's driving me nuts! Tried the Spider-Man pull-up thingys and sainsburys own 6+ With not much luck. Does anyone have any success with something else I can try?

Try Amazon or Ebay for medical-supplier nappies in size 7 and over.

The pampers pull ups are definitely more than a 6 plus. Ours still wears them at night and on the odd occasion we run out and have to use a nappy it's a real squeeze! I know that you can get size 7 and8 too as 'night pants ' but haven't seen at the supermarket. Have you searched online?

Have you tried asking on the SEN board.

Just buy adult XS - they are like pull ups. Tena Slips I think is what we used.

My 4 year old son has asd and is still in nappies. We receive Libero size 7 nappies free from the continence team on the NHS in 3 monthly supplies. You can ask your health visitor for a referral to your continence team. You can also buy size 7 and size 8 nappies from Amazon.

Dry notes, go up to age 15.

Pyjama pants or dry nites are available in most supermarkets in two sizes, the big ones are 8-15. My ds wore these til he was about 9. He also found it reassuring that other boys his age and older went through the same thing. They rarely leaked but are quite expensive, so I did reuse them for one night if they were dry.

That should be nites

Go to they have lots of ptoducts. My dd wasn't dry at night until about 9-10 and I used to be in dispair because I couldnt get nappies to fit. Eventually I contacted our local incontinence clinic and the nurses there were fab in organising a regular (3 month) supply of washable pants.

I would try something like this

Fairylea unless the op is missing important details a continence team referral would be completely inappropriate in this situation.

You need pampers dri nites. The huggies version (with the superheroes etc) are shit

wow thank you so much guys. it appears I am not the only who has tried this. Had to wash sheets again today! I am going to try some of the suggestions. As far as I understand I should not start to worry yet as lots of boys still wet the bed at this age. However his nappy is never dry but full and wet the bed almost everyday.
