Potty training has always been a challenge for us. It is for many special needs families. After a few years and lots of patience we have achieved day-time success! But we still struggle at night. When Norrin turned 8 years old I decided that this was the year we were going to achieve night-time success. But like all other things autism, things don't always work on a time table. It's still a work in progress.
So when I was approached by the folks at Super Undies, I was eager to give them a try.
Super Undies are a line of washable and reusable Pull-On and Snap-On potty training pants are completely waterproof through the wet zone, but made with super stretchy side tabs for easy on and off action. The undies come in a variety of bright colors for both boys and girls and are most like real underwear, which makes for an easier transition from diapers into the potty training mindset.
What I liked about them: I like that they are machine washable and reusable, as night-time pull-ons can become costly. Something that families can purchase once and keep using is sure to be a money saver. After a night of use, I rinsed them out in cold water before washing them. I didn't put them in the dryer. I was impressed with how well they washed and were ready to use again.
What I didn't like about them: I don't like that they are machine washable. Because in the mornings as I'm getting ready my kid ready for school and myself for work - the last thing I want to do is rinse out a soaked pull-on so that I can machine wash it after work. It just didn't work for me.
Who would I recommend them for: I would suggest Super Undies for kids who understand the concept of night-time dryness who wake up if they begin to feel wet.
Ultimately, I really liked the Super Undies product and I wish that it would have worked better for us. My kid's just not ready. I am sure one day he will be, but just not now.
