are pull-up nappies less absorbant?

I was wondering this, as I'm thinking of trying them for my very-active-and-impossible-to-hold-still 14 month old.

I used pull-ups for DS1 at night in the final stages of potty training, and I've always assumed they were less absorbant than normal nappies, and therefore only really designed for use when potty training.

Is this the case? Obviously potty training is a long way off for DS2, but I think pull-ups would be easier to get on him!

The pampers ones are fine for us, huggies are less absorbent.

Huggies pull ups are great for us and seem just as absorbant as regular Huggies nappies, with the bonus that DS can take them off himself in the morning if he needs a wee. I know this contradicts previous poster but we found Pampers pull ups rubbish, very unabsorbant

We've always used Pampers usual style nappies after trying a variety of other brands and with varying degrees of leakage.

The Pampers pull-ups IMO hold a staggering amount when we use them at night. Haven't tried others however.

We have girls, do you think that makes a difference?
