Superundies or Antsy Pants or other??

My older daughter is almost six and still wets at night at least half the time. We've been using Tinkle Time Overnight trainers for almost two years now, but she is outgrowing them. They are a but too small and are difficult to get on now, so we need a new solution. We got them from Squeezie Cheeks, but they are currently closed. Plus I don't really like how the cotton velour gets kind of rough ver time (probably the fault of our water, so I'd prefer a different fabric). I am thinking either super undies bed wetter pants, or antsy ants. Any thoughts or reviews for either, especially for kids older than 5?

Antsy pants didn't work for us at night (3yo) well the actually worked fine many nights but if he was on his side they would leak right out. All diapers have side leaking issues, but I think that design is the worst for it.

We found Snap-EZ pocket trainers for nighttime. DS is in larges but they also make 2 youth sizes. Also maybe look at motherese beddwetters, look like bulky underwear and they make larger sizes.

Thanks, my daughter is definitely a side sleeper. I'm checking out the snap-ez ones now... How are they for pulling on and off?

We tried Superundies for my 5.5 year old son but they didn't work for us- they would wick really bad and there really isn't much room to add extra absortion. We now use Tinkle Time overnight solutions (stuffed with 2 flats) and he hasn't has a leak since (he is in size 6). You could always see if Hope at Ladder Hill Designs will make a larger pair of TTT for you or if she has any in stock.

DS can pull them up and down on his own. Since they are pockets it might matter how to stuff them. we use a BG OS MF insert and a med joey bunz hemp. Then, to help with the side sleeper pees, I actually started using a grovia cotton doubler across the back so that the ends are at the side snaps. It's leaked a couple times when saturated but not much and never a large leak. they are a bit bulky though.

I wish I could afford to try one of each and see what works best for my daughter... But international shipping is expensive and there isn't any tore that carries several of these brands nicki's diapers has super undies and motherease, but doesn't have the right motherease size in stock... Hm...

Was it the nighttime super undies you tried or their regular ones? I'll try writing to ladder Hill deigns... I really don't want the cotton velour, though, maybe she'll do a different inner fabric for me... I'd need to get size 6 since the size 5s are getting too small
