Experience with BumWear pull-ups?

I would like to try these for my daughter, and wondered how the sizing/fit is, if they worked well overnight, really anything that you think would be helpful.

Re: Experience with BumWear pull-ups?

If you are talking about these:

http://www.bumwear.com/shopping/clot...-trainers.html

I had three for my 4 1/2 yo son when he was a bed-wetter (he is almost 8 now, stopped wetting the bed shortly after he turned 5). I had the kind with snaps on both sides, but if I could have done it over I would go with no snaps; sometimes he leaked out the snaps and I am not entirely sure why. I think he'd pull them on by himself and the fabric wasn't always laying flat.

They are pretty puffy and I thought they were short in the rise. His were stuffed with a Premium PF and maybe a hemp doubler (I can't remember) and VERY puffy. He was average height/weight and I always thought they looked like they were falling off. I'd prefer a higher rise. But, as I said, the only leaks were out through the snaps.

Re: Experience with BumWear pull-ups?

I just posted a review on Nicki's today, but sadly they cap it at 500 characters so I had to cut most of it out. I bought these to use at night for my 1yo (20.5 lbs, 29.5") who refuses to lay down for a diaper change after his bath. In retrospect I should have tried the first one longer before buying more, but my DH was desperate for a pull-on solution. I would not buy again for this purpose.

Pros:
cute prints and colors
cheap vs similar options
fairly adjustable snap configuration
soft fleece lining
can accommodate flip organic + hemp babies doubler

Cons:
bulky
very narrow pocket opening (thought about just cutting it wider myself)
cut best for tall and slim (or maybe it's toddler vs baby dimensions?)
not as stretchy as i hoped
wick at the leg elastic more than any other diapers

They may work better as an actual day trainer (slimmer toddler build, less stuffing).
