Re: looking for overnight alternatives to pull ups

We absolutely LOVE drybees overnight fleece diapers. They are a velcro fasten pocket diaper, but my son can wiggle them up and down like underwear. We also have Happy Heiny;s trainer underwear. They are like a pocket but only pull up and down. They are a terrible fit during the day, he has major bubble butt, but at night who cares?

Re: looking for overnight alternatives to pull ups

I've been making pullups for a friend of mine who has 5yr old twins that wet the bed. She's sick of buying pullups. I got a pattern from verybaby.com.

She loves them! They are just pull on waterproof underwear. Bulkier than real underwear, but they work great.

These sound interesting do you have a link?

We are going through the same thing as your brother kids. My dd was using Blueberries but pees through them every time. Now we are using pull-ups

I would love to know a good solution too. My nephew is 4 and has Autism, my sis is having a hard time at night because his sleep schedule is so screwy, he just doesn't wake up when he pees....

MotherEase makes a cloth inner / pul outer pullup that they call "bedwetter pants". We used them for dd after she potty trained, but was having nighttime accidents once in a while. They have go to fairly big sizes, so it might be a good option for a 4 year old.

here it is!

http://www.verybaby.com/ccp0-prodsho...s-pattern.html


I searched high and low for something that would suit the boys needs and this is what I found. I'm very pleased at how they work. The mama is too! LOL!

There is a layer of PUL for the outer, a full body layer of the absorbent material (I used thick old towels since I couldn't find anything else that would be as absorbent as I needed) a two layer pad of the same material ( I added a little extra at the top), and then the inner that lays against the skin. I used flannel in one and a cotton print in the other. Elastic in the legs and waist. It's a fairly simple pattern, just a little tedious at times. I find if I do two at a time it goes better than one at a time. I've made four so far and I'm going to make four more for her, so they each have four of them.

The pattern is from size 5 to 16 I believe. Just make sure you measure the legs and waist for the elastic. They give you a measurement to cut in the pattern, but it wasn't big enough for what I needed.


HTH!

I went and looked at the Motherease - they are quite similar to the verybaby pattern. Except they cost $29 a piece... and that doesn't include shipping, I believe.
