Good night-time pull-ups/pants/whatever
4

JustMyType · 19/08/2011 13:32

DD is 4 and shows no sign of being dry at night any time soon (recently had a try and she doesn't even wake up when she's wet the bed and her pyjamas are soaked). I'm not bothered about this as I know it'll come. She is still wearing a normal nappy, a Pampers Baby Dry, which is brilliantly effective and she's only vaguely bothered about it being 'for babies'. I have thought recently about trying something a bit more grown up so that if she stayed overnight somewhere else she might feel a bit more comfortable, although I would prefer to stick with something tried and tested (and presumably cheaper) for most nights. Any suggestions? Do proper nappies provide the best 'soaking up' capacity? What is the point of a pull-up when the child doesn't need to take the nappy on and off? Aren't all these things just a marketing con???

Don't have any experience with night-time pull-ups, but the normal day-time ones definitely aren't as absorbent as regular nappies.

I've seen "pyjama pants" somewhere but didn't look that closely as they looked like they were for older kids (DD1 is 2.10), but presumably they would hold more wee than nappies?

Well I wondered about that, not sure if they do.

BTW DD is a very petite and teeny 4 if that makes any difference.

DS is 3.4, and dry during the day For bed i use the huggies night time pull-up pants, they have a picture on the front which disappears when you wet them. DS gets a treat if the picture is still there in the morning (which has only happened a couple of times so far but he's getting the idea). The fact they pull up is useful as if he does wake during the night he can just pull them down like his normal daytime pants when he goes to the loo.

Forgot to say that yes they are a bit pricier than regular nappies but I tend to stock up when they are on special offer and as you only need 1 a day, they last a while.
