Super Undies review and giveaway

**This review has been updated. I was sent the wrong Super Undies, by accident. After some discussion between Super Undies and myself, they agreed to send the correct Bedwetters Panties for me to review.**

Raise your hand if you have a child.
Keep your hand raised if you have a child who goes potty on the potty.
Keep your hand raised if you have a child who goes potty on the potty and wears panties/underwear.

Keep your hand raised if you have a child who goes potty on the potty and wears panties/underwear, but has a hard time staying dry at night.


Now everyone who has their hand raised..... I am SO glad you are here! Keep reading! I have something for you!

The tale of two sisters. Very much alike but very much different. One has the bladder of a horse the other the bladder of a mouse. One stayed dry, all night, starting at the age of 2. The other struggles with night time wetting at the age of 3.

We have tried all of the tricks:
limited water intake after 7 pm. (We do not refuse to give her water, we just do not give her full cups.)
Potty RIGHT before bed
Explain that if she has to go potty to wake us up. But truth be told she has said more than once "I do not remember peeing in my bed" in the morning.

Nothing helps. Some mornings she is bone dry. Some mornings she is a teeny tiny wet. Other mornings she is fully wet. We have YET to find the connection.

So what do you do? Keep them in diapers all night? What do you do when your sweet little 3 year old says "Mommy, do I have to wear a diaper tonight? I don't like it." I will tell you what I did. I looked at Kit Kat and said "No, baby. you do not have to" knowing she would wake up wet the next morning. Sure 'nuf. She was all sorts of wet the following morning. So I did what I always do in messy situations.... I went researching. I have never been a fan of Pull Ups. But after talking to some other Mummies, I thought I might need to rethink my feelings on those. UNTIL I had an "ahhhhh haaa!" moment.

You see, we use to cloth diaper Kit Kat. Yupp, we were a fluffy butt kinda home! So I thought, "there HAS to be a cloth diaper that would work for us NOW!"

You will not believe who I found. A company who fits in SO well with our family. I mean really.... fits in well!



SUPER HEROS! Yes, my Mummies! SUPER UNDIES! 

Super Undies have a bed-wetting cloth option that sounded perfect for Kit Kat. 

"These Bedwetting Pants are real waterproof nighttime underwear that are designed to help your child wake up with dry sheets. They come with 4 layers of microfiber absorbency built in, and fleece covered elastic legs and waist for a comfortable, and more leak resistant fit. Excellent for potty training transitional nights, or even for minor child enuresis."
"These Bedwetting Pants (nighttime underwear) can usually handle most levels of wetters, although they may require additional absorbency, or to be changed once through the night. You can use one of our Step-up inserts, a diaper insert that you may already have, a wash rag folded in half or thirds, whatever it takes to add more absorbency in there. Some children can pee 16 oz at a time! Fill up a glass and take a look, that's a lot!"

I contacted Super Undies, asking if they thought they could come to our rescue (pun intended!) We did have some confusion at first. Super Undies sent me a Day Time Trainer panties and I was not aware of the mix up until after I posted this review. Super Undies caught the mistake and told me they did not send me the Bedwetters panties. After some discussion they did agree to send me the correct item for review. Kit Kat got to pick her color.... since she will be the one wearing them! I got to pick her size. I almost went with a small.... since she is a teeny thing. But changed my mind (last minute!) and went with a medium.

(The Bedwetters Super Undies Kit Kat picked.)
(Turned inside out. Nothing but SOFT and ABSORBENT material on the inside.) 



Kit Kat was so excited to get her Super Undies. I let her play around their website and her response "I get one of THESE?! I'm so ahsited!!" (AKA excited.... remember she is 3!)
(The pair Kit Kat picked out!)

My initial thoughts on our Super Undies?  They are super soft and NOT bulky at all. I was thinking they would be like a "normal" cloth diaper and give my no booty girl some.. well... booty. But they are very similar to "regular" panties. They are a bit bigger than panties, but MUCH smaller than cloth diapers. I would say a GREAT half way point between panties and cloth diapers. I also LOVED the fact that there was an extra mesh pouch for an extra insert. 



I washed our pair the next day. SHOCKER.... These Super Undies do NOT require the same washing instructions as cloth diapers! No washing 4-5 times for MAX absorbency. No "specific" washing detergent either. All you have to do it turn inside out, toss in the wash and you can even toss them in the dryer (we opt for the air dry though.) 

Kit Kat kept asking "can I wear them NOW?!"  (She is not known for her patience.) So when I finally said "YUPP!" She was so excited!




Kit Kat has worn her Super Undies (She calls them her "special panties") for a few nights now. We only have one pair, so she has not worn them every night. But, from a Mummie point of view, they are awesome. They fit very well, are MORE similar to "big girl panties" than diapers, they do not feel like a diaper (to me) and they have a GREAT absorbency factor.

The first two nights she was DRY! (Go figure! Although I was super excited about her being dry, I thought "how am I going to review them if she won't pee in them?!" Then I felt horrible for thinking that. So I began jumping up and down with excitement that she was dry for the whole night. But then I stopped when Kit Kat looked at me like I had a million heads with rainbow colored hair.) On the 3rd try, she broke the dam! Her Super Undies were SOAKED on the inside.... but bone dry on the outside! Sweet success!

I did have a slight issue with a "smell." To fix that, I soaked the Super Undies in the washer over night and re washed the next morning.... TADAA no more smell.

But the real test was what Kit Kat thought of them. So I asked her. Now, our sweet Kit Kat is a bit..... imaginative/unique/ highly individual. So I thought I would share her with you all.... instead of just typing what she has to say about Super Undies (how BORING!) I decided it would be fun to let her actually tell you! Here is Kit Kat's personal review of Super Undies:



What can be better than "Blueberries, strawberries and grapes?" Plus, even Kit Kat agrees.... "they're very soft, Mommy" and something about "toe nails".... like I said she is unique. Since my little KK gives her Super Undies two KK thumbs up.... I will give them 2 Nummie Makers up!

So what do you say? Do you have a little one at home who deserves to be a little bit more SUPER?! I am SO happy to announce, Super Undies is giving away one pair of their BedWetters pants! Let your little one pick the color and you pick the size. Then Kit Kat will have a Super Undies side kick!

  2. She is SO stinkin' cute! I think this is what my 3 year old needs! She can make it all day long in regular panties, and MOST nights in panties and wake up dry. But, most mornings she wakes up soaked. I showed her the video. She says she wants super undies too!

  11. The whole thing was hilarious. I was sold when she said they were soft. So many things for potty training are designed to facilitate the functional part and not so much for comfort.
