I was always a little in awe, or maybe it was a little jealous, of the moms who told stories of their potty trained 18 month old. As a cloth diaper blogger, I admittedly didn’t rush the process. I didn’t really use cloth trainers during the day. But I can tell you that I have ALWAYS heard how AMAZING Super Undies trainers are. They are the first ones I recommend because of that. And now I’ve also tried them and I totally still agree.
I’m not gonna lie. I have high expectations. I don’t want to be changing sheets at 3 am on any sort of a regular basis. I want something well made that is built to last.
Super Undies fit the bill and then some.
I received a Super Undies in exchange for this review. However, all statements and opinions are honest and true.
Super Undies are made in the USA. Which I always love. The workmanship and materials used are incredible. First look shows me soft materials at the legs. That happens to be water resistant fleece which adds another level of wetness protection. The outside is made of a fully waterproof material. The inner that touches baby is a poly-Lycra blend, the same sort of stuff that is found in leggings.
There are two separate soakers. One sewn in the same way it would be in an All in One. The second is attached at one end. It can either be fed all the way through the pocket to provide more wetness protection for girls or folding in the front to work better for boys.
The one downfall of the inserts for me is that they are microfiber. They are certainly absorbent enough. I’m just more of a bamboo or hemp fan as natural fibers are often easier to wash and can be trimmer than microfiber.
I was sent a Size 1, the smallest size of Super Undies Bedwetting Pants/Nighttime Undies available. According to the size chart it should fit the kids that are wearing 3t in clothes. Sophia is right into 3t’s. She is tall at about 38″ but thin at just under 35 pounds. I found these to still seem a little bit big on her. That didn’t exactly lend itself to being trim. If Sophia were a little bigger I think the size would be great though. We just aren’t quite there yet.
It is also my understanding that the daytime version of Super Undies 2.0 is designed to be easier for the child to pull up and down. But the nighttime undies were pretty impossible for Sophia to pull up on her own. She is 3.5 for a point of reference. That is ok though, because she isn’t getting out of bed to go pee at night anyway yet. But it might be something you want to think about if your child is.
Another thing that I LOVE about this company is that they also filling a niche for special needs children and adults. They work great for older kids and Super Undies even has a line of adult cloth.
One of the only pitfalls of the nighttime undies may be the cost. They currently retail at $32.95. I can tell you that if you can afford these and it fits your needs…they are worth the price.
