Overnight Protection | Nighttime Undies
Many children go through bedwetting, and it sure can make them feel bad. Super Undies wants to help children wake up dry, and not damage their self-esteem. These Nighttime Undies work as overnight protection designed to help your child wake up with dry sheets. This alone helps relieve the stress of a child having to tell his parents that he wet the bed. They are excellent for potty training transitional nights, or even for minor child enuresis. For heavy heavy overnight protection, please add an insert (or a folded dishcloth) to them.
How Do Nighttime Undies Offer Overnight Protection?
Our bedwetting pants are made to hold the Hoover Dam. We started with a good concept on retaining a nighttime accident, then we beefed it up.
1. We use waterproof material all through the external structure of the undies.
2. There are 4 layers of build in absorbency, two sewn internally and two externally as a soaker pad. You can also add more absorbency as needed.
3. The tabs are waterproof, and on the back of them, we put a soft water-resistant fleece to help hold in leaking from side sleepers.
4. The legs and waist are created from water-resistant fleece, as an additional insurance policy against leaking.
5. The absorbent material does not touch the outer edges inside the undies. This also battles against leaking.
6. There is a pouch behind the insert. Simply stuff more absorbency in it!
Your Child Will Sleep Better
A kid who wets the bed and leaks out will absolutely feel the cold in his sleep. This could cause him to toss and turn all night long, or until he finally wakes up… or wakes you up. Either way, better overnight protection leads to a successful day, and getting a poor nights sleep can make more than one member of the household pretty cranky. Super Undies Nighttime Undies contain the wetness, and by holding it in the undies, the wetness changes to the same temperature as their body. They won’t be able to feel the wetness after a few minutes. Some kids wake up and don’t know if they wet until they check the undies!
Control, Reduce, or Eliminate Bedwetting
Children learning to nighttime train have to do so without the conscious knowledge of it. Wetness hitting the skin is your best friend in this process. It creates the brain\body connection necessary. Disposable diapers do such a great job of whisking that wetness away immediately that the brain never has time to process what just happened. We have to help train the brain if we want to nighttime train in a faster way. 15% of children that switch from disposables to cloth see a dramatic reduction in wet nights, or stop bedwetting altogether. If you switch from disposables to cloth and are not fortunate enough to be counted amongst this 15%, you would still have a reusable nighttime training solution that no longer costs you an unforeseeable supply of money.
Sure you can save trees, but you’ll also save money!
Using disposable diapers adds up. When you have a baby, a disposable diaper costs about .11, pretty cheap! But as you go up in size (and by then your hooked) they get considerably more expensive, until your paying over $1.00 a piece for UnderJams. Your Overnight Protection plan is now about about $30 a month, and a pair of Nighttime Undies is about $30. Having two pairs of bedwetting pants may cost $60, but they will last you at least an entire year, and that will save you $300 in the long run!
How Long Does Bedwetting Last?
If either parent were bedwetters, then look back to the age they stopped wetting. Bedwetting is largely hereditary, so that could be a good indication of when you can expect your child to stop. But there is no way to know. If you think your child could be bedwetting for even just two more months, investing in some reusable Overnight Protection like Super Undies will start to make a lot of sense.
Cloth Undies Feel Better
There’s a stigma attached with disposables. Even though they are “UnderJams” or “GoodNites” children still associate the disposable product with a baby diaper. Kids see cloth more like underwear or clothing, not a plastic baby diaper. I hadn’t realized this until I tried t put my boy in disposables. See, we always cloth diapered, and then I made these Nighttime Undies when he got too big for cloth but still wet the bed at night. We were going on vacation and I bought some disposables to replace our washable stuff – and he freaked out! He was crying, and SUPER worried that someone would find out or see those disposables. Turned out it wasn’t “bedwetting” he was embarrassed about, as much as it was having to wear what he thought was a baby diaper.
Commonly Asked Questions
How many of these would I need?
We recommend two to three for a rotation, that way one item doesn’t take all the wear from daily laundering. Anything item of clothing you buy will have a shorter life-span the more it is laundered, so rotating your Nighttime Undies will keep them lasting longer. So will washing them in a garment bag, not using bleach, and not using fabric softener!
Will my kid like these?
I would like you to show your child the item before purchasing. Due to the sensitive nature of the product and the cost we incur by producing in American, we only offer exchanges for new items. Starting with gathering your child’s opinion can be valuable in making sure he will wear them!
Are these comfortable to sleep in?
Nighttime Undies are super soft around the legs and waist, and great care was taken in the pattern to make sure you get a smooth inner feel. We’ve never heard complaints of them being scratchy. The only complaint we sometimes hear is that the undies can be bulky. We are tasked with the job of using enough absorbency to match your child’s output, and if we miss the mark and they leak, you’ll be mad at us. We use enough absorbency to handle what most kids can pee out, offering you an adjustable overnight protection solution.
Will they get hot?
Heat comes from a waterproof barrier not being breathable, so air doesn’t circulate. All a disposable diaper is really is a thin plastic trash bag with SAP in it. The ones that “cool” is covered in a chemical compound that creates a reaction (against you kid’s skin) when wet. Our bedwetting underwear doesn’t count on plastic for its waterproofing. We use PUL, a 1 mil breathable laminate on a non-wicking polyester fabric. That means our Nighttime Undies are cooler than the disposable competition. And better for the environment. And better for your kid’s skin. And made in American. And Super Undies is family owned. Doesn’t that make your heart happy?
What size would I need?
Please refer to the sizing tab and measure your child. We use age recommendations as a guideline, but it is no replacement for measuring! And remember, the waistband of our bedwetting pants folds down to cinch up the waist and rise. This means you want to focus on your leg measurement and hopefully get it right in the middle of the given range.
