When we potty trained the first time we had no issues. He stayed dry all night and woke up from naps sweaty but again, no accidents.
But since he had worn Pull Ups at night and during naptime after his regression, we needed to figure out a solution to getting him back on track in controlling his need to go when he was in a deep sleep. Our solution to our night-time dilemma was Super Undies!
Like cloth diapers, Super Undies have an inner layer of microfiber cloth to allow for little accidents to be absorbed and not get the sheets and clothes wet. If extra protection is needed, Super Undies also has a removable insert to place inside the trainers like a pocket diaper.
There are two types of daytime use Super Undies, the Pull On Potty Training Pants and the Pocket Potty Training Pants. To learn more about the differences of the two watch each of the videos shown on the website (links above).
For most people, Super Undies are the perfect green solution to potty training pants. Instead of going for the disposable trainers, you would simply purchase a set of Super Undies to use until your little one got the hang of holding it in and waiting to get to the toilet.
They are super easy to pull up and down, just like underwear, but don't have as much bulk as a cloth diaper. They're also a heck of a lot more stylish than the plastic pants I've been handed down by relatives.
And they're simple and easy to wash. Since these aren't diapers and aren't meant to hold in a lot of urine, they can be washed in what you wash your undies with. I simply throw our Super Undies in with the darks or the towels... whichever needs to be done first.
Super Undies come in a variety of colors. I had my son help pick out the color of his and got him involved in knowing exactly what they were for and how they were just for emergencies.
Nighttime Potty Training Solution
Since we already have daytime potty training covered, and have continued to use underwear, the only time we needed a little extra reassurance is night time when my son occasionally still has an accident when he either wakes up too late or doesn't make it to the bathroom in time in the morning and has an accident on the carpet outside of the bathroom (or next to his bed).
For the first two months after he was trained we had him wear his Super Undies to bed for an added sense of reassurance. He felt better because he knew that even if he didn't make it in time, he wouldn't make a mess everywhere. And we were happy because we don't have to change his sheets as often.
Because the Super Undies have a removable insert, you can decide whether or not to add in more absorbency or leave the insert out. Either way, you're saved from having to clean up the messes accidents leave behind.
Super Undies also has a pair Nighttime Undies if you need a little more protection.
The InvestmentAt a reasonable base price of $19.95, and a potty training kit starting at $125, you can purchase all of the Super Undies you need for the cost of less than 5 months worth of diapers or disposable trainers How's that for savings?
Even if you're only looking for a night-time and nap-time solution, Super Undies are a safe bet! And I'm fairly certain that potty training would have been a heck of a lot easier had we invested in Super Undies before trying Pull Ups. I think a lot of frustration and miscommunication between myself and my son could have been avoided.
