    Default Difference between huggies dri nites, nappy pants and pull ups?

    They all look the same to me. Anyone care to explain?

    Was going to get pull ups just for long car trips or when we wont be near a loo while we are TT our DD.

    Nappy pants are just nappies that u pull up.

    Pull ups are designed for TT- they allow the child to feel wet, unlike nappies and nappy pants which absorb the moisture away from the child.

    Dry Nights are specifically designed for night and are more absorbent (or supposed to be) than nappies and pull ups.

    Hope that helps?

    Dry bites are for older kids 3-4on I think.

    For a long car trip I'd prob get nappy pants for the absorbency

    I think the drynites start for when they grow out of the pull ups? The drynites are from 4-7 years from memory and for bedwetters generally. What ever fits best.

    Thanks ladies very helpful.

    I like the idea that the pull ups will still keep her feeling a bit wet so hopefully wont interfere with TT too much as she will think they are like knickers but will just prevent the mess.we will only be using them occasionally when we absolutely need to.

    How absorbent did you find the pull ups? Anyone?

    I found pull ups absolutely hopeless. Leaked straight away on my then 2yo ds. I would go for nappy pants. Especially given you will be in a car. You are bound to get compression leaks with pull ups.

    I personally loved the pull ups! Although if I left them on over night they leaked, but during the day they were fantastic!

    We did a lot of fairly long distance driving when dd1 was little and used pull-ups no problem. We stopped a bit more frequently and encouraged her to use a potty/sit on the toilet and for her to tell us if she needed to go.

    We tried pull UPS on my step daughter over night but found they were expensive and would be soaked through very quickly. At the start we just used normal nappies, but then started using nappy pants... When she had first started using the nappy pants at night, we found that they also had minimal.absorbency compared to normal.nappies. Not sure about the dry nights though. As she grew older and started having better bladder control the nappies became drier over night... Hope that helps a little
