Hey folks! If you're reading this, you probably have heard of or already use cloth diapers and/or trainers. But, did you know there are cloth bedwetting pants on the market now too? I'm super excited to share Super Undies Bedwetting Pants with you today!
Chances are if you're reading this, you too have a child who has accidents at night. I think we can both agree that they just plain suck for both you and (if not even more) for your child, especially if they're older or been potty trained through the day for awhile. It's no fun as a parent having to strip their bed every morning and doing a special/extra load of laundry to wash their sheets and night clothes, not to mention cleaning up a distraught, wet, cold child. Speaking of distraught children, not only is it uncomfortable for the child, it can hurt their self-esteem and feel embarrassing too.
Enter Super Undies to save the day! (Or night, in this case.) Even if you don't currently or have never used cloth diapers or trainers before, you can still make the switch to their cloth Bedwetting Pants! Here's a few good reasons to start off with:
*Cost savings. The initial price of $32.95 for a pair of Bedwetting Pants may put you off, but consider how much it is costing you to buy disposables each month! (You can read more on that at the link above on Super Undies' website.)
*You can use them for multiple children, if the need arises.
*They come in multiple sizes, so even if you have an older child who is still experiencing nighttime accidents, chances are Super Undies has a size for him/her as well! (Bedwetting Pants largest size is designed for 9-13 year olds.)
*You can choose from microfiber or cotton for the absorbent layers. (Personally, I like this option as microfiber tends to break both of my girls out, even if it's not directly touching their skin...Which is not recommended anyways!)
*There are also multiple prints and colors to choose from, so you're sure to find one that your child will actually enjoy wearing!
So, now that you know a little more about Super Undies' Bedwetting Pants in general, here are some notes from our personal experience with them:
*Myka (who will be 4 in less than a month) did not do well with regular cloth training pants when she was going through regular potty training, but she loves these! She calls them “diaper panties”, but hey, as long as she wears them and likes them, I don't care what she calls them! They are definitely “Myka approved” as she requests them every night. She likes the rainbow print and was SO excited when we got them in the mail! Seriously. I've never seen a kid so excited about underwear in my life!
*We've had these for about a month and they have worked better than I expected thus far. We haven't had any issues with wet beds (or kid). We even had a disposable leak one night when I didn't get around to washing these one day!
*Super Undies recommends at least two pairs of Bedwetting Pants so you're not having to wash them ALL the time and I have to agree with this suggestion, especially if you have a child who still wets the bed regularly.
*I was concerned about this fraying at first, but it doesn't seem to have frayed any further or be causing any problems. I have a hunch it's “normal” after the first few washes.
*I was also not crazy about the built-in insert (we chose cotton) at first because I usually don't care for them in regular cloth diapers. Plus, I was worried it wouldn't get as clean. However, it's ended up not being a big deal and still gets plenty clean if you wash it according to directions and turn your Bedwetting Pants inside out.
*I was also having some stink issues at first, even after rinsing them out right away before washing, soaking them in vinegar, AND washing. However, we recently changed detergents and I haven't noticed any lingering, funky smells since then. So, perhaps I just wasn't using enough detergent before?
*I (and I think Myka) like that Bedwetting Pants are really soft and not scratchy like disposables.
*As far as fit, they are a little big/bulky on Myka, but she is at the very bottom of the age/weight range on our size 2 pants, which are recommended for 4-6 year olds. Again, they are still working well as we haven't had any leaks.
*Super Undies Bedwetting Pants are about the same price as an All-in-One or pocket diaper, maybe a little more, BUT, you obviously need way less of them!
