DD has been day potty learned since April and doing great. Up until a week ago, she was still in night time dipes-much older ones-was basically using old size M-fb, size M HH, size L swaddlebees. Even though the MEOS and Happy Hempy worked better at night-she is just too big and fighting to put a dipe and cover on-so we were using pockets. However, probably b/c of the size they would leak more than not lately.

She wanted to try to wear panties to bed-we have been doing that for a week with no success-I know it takes more than a week, but all weekend she now started peeing her panties during the day, which she hasn't done since she was learning back in April. So I am guessed she is stressed, even though she says she isn't and am thinking of putting her back in dipes at night so she can be comfortable and then let us know when she is ready to try again.

She will be 3 next week-and I haven't bought new dipes in years. Are there any that are more like pull ups (I saw the earlier thread about daytime) but for night that would be absorbant enough. It seems when she does where a dipe she is either completely dry in the morning or flooding out of it-there really is no middle of the ground with her. I could just buy larger pockets-but was wondering if there were any that were more pull up like, instead of lay down and velcro and/or button.

Thanks for any help!

The Nikky All Night pants worked really well for my 3-year-old. If you buy them from www.babyworks.com they have a policy where you can try one out and return it if it doesn't work. They do run a little small, so if she's in the middle of the size-range, I'd size up.

HTH!

I just ordered a pair of these new pull up pocket pants from Bongo Baby. They have stretchy sides like regular pull ups but with a pocket so you can adjust the absorbency. I haven't received them yet, but they look awesome. You can get them at http://www.continuum-family.com/inde...roducts_id=142

I also have a code for 10% off your first purchase. PM me if you'd like it.

Thank you! I went ahead and ordered the ME bedwetters since those seem to be more absorbant and maybe I will switch to the Nikky's when it seems like she is getting closer.
