I know this has been done before sorry. My ds is 4 but very big. He is still in nappies at night and has a very full nappy every morning. To the extent though the bed is totally flooded every morning and he's soaked.
He's currently in size 6 pampers pull ups. Any recommendations what to change to? Are Huggies dry nights any good?
Would prefer pull ups but think we are a long way off night time toilet training so would sacrifice that for something that stays dry over night!
I found ordinary libero nappies tended to leak with dd2 however she was drinking a huge amount of milk from a bottle . Those ones ouryve Iinked to look great . Please don't worry about asking about something that's been mentioned before I do it all the time
Hi, we use the Libero size 7 pull ups at night. If you contact Tena Direct they should send out some free samples so you can try before you buy. Have you contacted your local continence service? (you may need a referral from your HV or school nurse) as you may well be entitled to free nappies because your son is over 4.
Well ds (now a teen) has a very large capacity IYKWIM and they do sometimes leak. However no where near as much as drynights or similar products. I don't know about fit for a 4 year old, - the smallest size might be too big. Have you tried putting a washable over the top of a disposable. Bit too hot in the summer, but might work in winter. I used to do that with ds when he was younger, to try to cut down on the midnight changes. Just as well he is skinny as it looks a bit bulky! Then I just accepted the daily washing and bought a waterproof duvet to reduce the number of wash loads. When we tried using an alarm it became obvious he was wetting at least 3 times a night. Using an alarm (I think he was 9) cut it down to once a night, which is more manageable.
And it might be worth doing away with the pull ups, unless you're taking him to the loo in the night, if the wetting is such a big problem. For something utterly non-leaky, the attends slips that DS2 has are brilliant (so long as he doesn't decide to shred them). DS2 moved into the smallest size (XS) at 5.5, but he was a skinny streak of nothing at that age. www.attends.co.uk/products/view.aspx?pr=830&ru=%2fdefault.aspx
Thanks for all the advice. I think we will do away with pull ups they are not needed as not using the toilet at night anyway like you say ouryve. In the middle of a day time toileting regression let alone night time!
Will get samples both tena and attends. Thanks so much for the help all.
