Looking for a Good Nighttime PullUp that doesn't leak.

Less than a month ago I bought some ADORABLE overnight pullup style cloth diapers off of Etsy. However, they just haven't worked on my daughter who is tall and thin. I think it is a fit issue, but really how can I know? PUL on the outside, soaker is made of 8 layers of cotton and it has a microfleece stay dry section on top of the soaker. It is an AIO. It also has a pocket so I can stuff it and if stuffed there is no real "wet" spot but her PJ's and bedding stinks of ammonia. Not always, but often enough so I have decided to resell them. A friend of mine is borrowing them to try with her son, so she might buy them. But if not to ebay they go.

Are there any good options out there besides $30 Super Undies for night time use? They need to be pull up style so she can take care of her own dressing/undressing needs.

Re: Looking for a Good Nighttime PullUp that doesn't leak.

super puffy and not at all like real underwear, but the happy heiny with no snaps were the only thing we found that worked for my heavy wetter. we used them with a hemp prefold and a microfiber insert. on my less heavy wetter we used ladderhilldesigns tinkle time trainers, they were super cute and we loved them. i just can't comment on how they'd work for a real flooder...we never had any issues with them though...

That's just it. I'm not sure if she's a heavy wetter...I just think they don't fit properly on her. The inserts haven't been soaking wet or anything and there's no wetness in the morning. Maybe the smell is just transferring? I don't know but I don't like it :-( If only the Happy Heinys came with Disney Princesses on it she'd wear them no matter HOW puffy.

motherese bedwetters but same price as super undies. If you like the HH design snap ez are similar but less poofy. Bumwear also make trainers but they are hard to find in the US -- more designs though (similar to snap ez as well)

I've heard greAt things about super sikivvies she was on etsy now expanding selling off leftover stock for $9.95 may want to look at that option. I'll link her new site and old etsy store so you can see the feedback. Thinking of trying 1!

Thank you for all the leads. Does anyone have photos of kids wearing the HH or Motherease, etc so I can see what they look like/fit like?

Re: Looking for a Good Nighttime PullUp that doesn't leak.

My son just wore his HH last night so the earliest he might wear them again is in 2 or 3 days I can try and remember.

I know you didn't ask but I have pics of my 3 year old in snap-ez

We use the fleece pockets and only overnight. We stuffed them as needed for overnight.
