We have been trying out the new ASDA little angles day and night pants for a few weeks now. We only use them in the evening. After such a trauma potty training I want the boys to still think they are big boys at night as well. So we have ditched nappies and use pull ups or night undies as we call them. I found the twins harder than my singletons to potty train, they also almost instantly were dry at night as well. The twins however have been a bit more of a challenge.
We started by using the little angels first pants to train the boys and realised that we needed to just take the plunge and go to normal underpants and we are so glad we did as it did the trick. They do however still need some protection at night. We have the odd dry night but not enough that I would stop using night undies. Not all children are the same and some do take longer than others. Bet wetting is common in children even when slightly older. They can have a bad dream or be in a heavy sleep and not realise. It’s not uncommon and is certainly normal.
I found this on the NHS Website about Bedwetting in Children you can see its is more common than you think
In the UK, it’s estimated that about:
- 1 in 12 children wet the bed regularly at four and a half years old (regularly is defined as at least twice a week).
- 1 in 40 children wet the bed regularly at seven and a half years old.
- 1 in 65 children wet the bed regularly at nine and a half years old.
We had been using the easy up pants at night but found that now the boys are bigger they are not as absorbent and had a few leaks at night time. After trying the Day and night pants we don’t have any leaks. I think this is because they are a little bigger and also designed for bigger children they seem to hold more. We haven’t had leaks on the nights when they have drunk loads before bed when usually we would expect a few wet patches in the morning. Oh and not to mention more washing for me.
The pants are made for boys and girls and come in pink and blue packaging with little pictures on. Ours have footballs on which please Edward and Euan. They love football so feel really big a grown up. When I first looked at the size because the boys are only 3 I though they would just fall off. They actually fit really well they go a lot higher than the easy up pants which might be the reason we have no leaks. I will continue to use the day and night pants now till they are fully dry.
