7 year old bed wetter underwear

Hey guys,
My SIL is looking for a solution for her 7 year old bed wetter. She's heard of antsy pants, but apparently there are lots of other options out there these days. He's a 10-12 size in clothes/underwear. What do y'all recommend? Thanks!!

We used Goodnites at the moment..they are disposable though. They have ones that go to over 100lbs. My DD is 8 1/2 yrs old.

The thing with trainers in general(not speaking for yours) they aren't absorbent enough. My DD leaked through the Kroger/Generic night time big kid underpants. Goodnites is the only one that is absorbent enough. They would have to have a lot of layers of absorbency.

So OP make sure the mama makes them absorbent enough.

Re: 7 year old bed wetter underwear

My son wears "under jammies." They have them in pretty big sizes, and you can buy them at Target. They are also really absorbent. The PP is right, cloth just isn't absorbent enough for older kids. Even my 3+ year old pees too much for cloth anymore. Also, there are self esteem issues to think about for older kids, and I like the under jammies because of the whole night time underwear thing.

We tried the snapeze and the HH trainers and neither worked well for my big kids. They had to be stuffed so much to be absorbent enough that they were uncomfortable and then they fit weird and would leak around the legs etc. We liked both Goodnights and Under Jammies

I agree that disposables are better for older kids. I've tried a couple of different things, and my DD prefers disposables.

Oh that is where they went! I used to get them at Wal-Mart then they stopped selling them. They were great to.

I just bought a box of 50 for $20+ tax at Target. Cheaper than Amazon (unless you S&S but we couldn't wait). They do hold quite a bit. That is the reason my almost 4 yo wears them. He is a mucho heavy wetter.
