Out of my 3 potty trained kids (the fourth is 7 months so we haven't gotten there yet), 2 of them still have issues with bedwetting at night. My oldest only needed pull-ups for a couple months, and then was completely night trained. My now 7 and 5 year olds, however, are wet about 80% of the time in the mornings, so we have been searching for an alternative to pulls up. Not only are pull ups expensive, but they absorb all moisture so don't really encourage kids to get up and go to the bathroom.
Which brings me to Peejamas. They slowly absorb liquid, and not as much as pulls ups, which causes the child to feel the wetness and get up and go to the bathroom. Peejamas can absorb roughly 3 pees a night for light to moderate pee-ers and can be washed 300+ times, making them the perfect stepping stone to overcoming nighttime potty training.
I was so excited for my kids to try these out, and have nothing but great things to say about this brand! They're cheaper than buying pull ups. They're eco friendly (no more throwing away 2 pull ups EVERY morning). They're comfortable and not soaked in chemicals (fire retardant). My kids love wearing them, and they are super cute. The first time my kids tried them on, my 5 year old didn't want to take them off, he kept saying how soft they were. I love the different prints they have.
Also, as you could imagine my 7 year old has been super self conscious about still being in pull ups. She would hide them when getting dressed when we were staying with out of town family, and was very embarrassed for sleep overs. With Peejamas, no one knows she has any sort of protection on, so it gives her so much more confidence.
After 1 night, both my kids got up to use the bathroom (they're both normally VERY heavy sleepers which I think is part of the problem), and they woke up with a minimal amount of wetness. Night 2, my daughter woke up completely dry, my son only a little wet. Night 3, both woke up dry! Guys, this is huge for my kids! We've tried the alarms that go off when they get wet, sleeping in underwear (and changing sheets every morning), we've basically tried it all and this is the most success we've seen so far with any method. I'm hoping it continues. Regardless, I would highly recommend trying these whether you're just beginning to night train, or have been at it for a while. It is worth the investment and will save you big time on the cost of disposable diapers.
