I have a 3.5 year old daughter who is full day tt but not night. She drinks a lot during the night cause of her reflux so at the moment I dont want to be waking her to wee as we get little sleep as it is
Do you have any suggestions of what I can use for her. She weighs 18 kilos. Which are the best training pants and can they handle a full night of wee?
Pullups are breaking us and the cheap nappies dont fit her properly....

Maybe talk to some of the WAhms who make good night nappies like Wild Childs or Nappy Chappies and see what they can do??

Will be watching this with interest, I have just discovered Coles nappies, they are a great size, they are the only ones I can get my 3 year old into. But I want some AIO's too just for night use, because we are fully day TT'd but don't want to keep buying nappies just for night.

E-mail Possum Pouches about XL Keester Kovers or Beetlebums (on Ozebaby) about XL nappy pants.

when i get a sec I'll try and see if I can get B to try on a large Keester Kover and see what the fit is like, if she'll let me lol. She's a little bit heavier.

The Happy Heiny Trainer Pants are boostable. So you can have them on her for day (no boosting), use them at night, put boosting in the pocket bit. I see them for sale at www.theweewuns.com.au
some trainers are designed to catch one wee, some are designed with the boostable pocket.
i would speak to the seller about your needs, see what they suggest.
this is what i read about, not up to that stage with my bub yet.

I use XL fuzzi bunz on my DS2 (21 kg) who's not 3 yet. Usually with hemp fleece insert and microfleece booster. Now I just have to get him to take it off every morning and use the toilet before he gets saturated! Would be ok if I got up before 7...not me atm!

James is 17kg, and although these are night nappies, it mightn't matter so much that she is wearing a nappy and not training pants. We have a large Bubblebubs GNST and an XL Sandman. The Sandman has heaps
of room to spare, although he fits into a L on the last snap too. We're using a XL Loveybums wool jersey wrap over the top which also has heaps of room (he has a Toddler sized Stacinator cover but it's not as roomy)
