I went to a local medical supply store (they sell drynites and some adult diapers too) earlier yesterday, I went in to get a pack of drynites as it's the closest store to me that sells the bigger sizes but they didn't stock them anymore, but the older guy at the counter (in mid 50's range) asked me if I needed any help, I said I was looking for some 'supplies' for my little sister as a cover story. He said they stock some for younger children and I took a large pack of Libero Sleep Comfort diapers in large.

All I have to say is...Wow
They fit much more comfortably than drynites (on myself with a 32'' hip size), they are designed much better than both drynites and underjams and practically never rip or tear. They hold quite a fair bit too and they are designed to be quiet. However...unless you are oiled and powdered pretty well I wouldn't recommend walking long distance in one, they do chafe a little bit and get uncomfortable after a while.

If you get the chance, at least try them. They are great in my opinion.

If you have tried them, what did you think?

We have nothing like a CVS over here (unfortunately), the only real medical store is a branch from our local hospital service. They're a bit bigger than goodnites and the ones I bought are slightly purple, with light green and darker purple stripes.

Doesn't look like it. They appear to be very similar to GoodNites. Although the website implies that they aren't actually out yet. Libero Night Comfort. Realistically, no mass-market bed-wetting pant aimed at children is going to be constructed like a standard nappy - any non-DL would be too ashamed to wear it.

They're probably just a rebranded Tena pull-up. Though that isn't necessarily a bad thing - it implies better construction than GoodNites or Underjams. Ultimately, Huggies and Pampers are hardly experts on adult incontinence products. It actually surprises me that none of the larger adult nappy manufacturers have tried breaking into this market before.

Too bad they don't have designs. Although I never have understood why the L/XL goodnites actually do have designs on them. Good for us TB/DLs but if anything it makes them more like a diaper than underwear. I'm sure most of the older kids in the 85+ weight range have moved past designs on their underwear at that point. I know I did when I was that age.

I think they would dispute that. Proctor and Gamble, who makes Pampers, used to make Attends before they sold off that part of their business. Back then, Attends were pretty good. Kimberly Clark, who makes Huggies, also makes Depend which has pretty broad appeal for non-*B/DL's.

they can bought from B and M Supplies (Lancs, UK - have a google) and i can testify that they are prettier and better fitting than the usual pull-ups for older children.

compared with a drinites (in the pic) they don't look that much better, size-wise, but they are. they also gel well: i wore one for a paddling-pool shoot and it swelled up to exploding point.

I was not aware of that. Huh. You'd think they'd do a better job with their bed-wetting products then. Still, I suppose that if you're aiming for maximum discretion, something has to give.

If it turns out to be a commercial success, they would be stupid not to. America consumes (percentage-wise) more diapers than the UK does. Partly because parents are lazy.

It's all one of those "convenience" things. I don't mind buying convenience if it's reasonable.

1. Bed wetting really has nothing to do with parents being lazy.
2. There is another extreme, that some parents potty train too early.

<soapbox>

What I meant with parents being lazy is that there are many parents who do not execute common potty training practices properly; being that they make no indication of any consequence to their children for not potty training. Some parents simply don't even encourage toilet use at all. My sister-in-law works at a public school as a para-educator (sort of like a one-on-one teacher in a very loose sense), and she has seen, even through the 3rd grade, many children barely being daytime potty trained. That's not to say that all of those children are like that on purpose (or even by accident), as I understand the need of those who are truly incontinent. But my point is that many parents put forth very little effort towards training their children and simply rely on a readily disposable method of training that is not designed for such purposes in the first place.

Interesting, and I can see why Tena are doing it. Even if it's a rebrand of stuff they already do, it makes sense to aim at the young bedwetter market which means a chance of stocking in supermarkets instead of just in specialist stores. Seems to be an increasing market going by the amount of adverts for Drynites on TV, the presence of Underjams and now this.

As for the prints, it could be that they favour them on the larger sizes because the typical age of the wearer is going to be under 10. I mean they may be age 8-15 for the XL Drynites, but that's a large range and the majority are going to be at the younger end. Sure it's easier to convince the kid to wear them if they're "big boy" pants and look adult, but pre-teens also like cool stuff over plain.

To be honest, pampers size 6 do me fine, I'm relatively small for my age I guess, but they are a good fit and hold well :)

Very good post. :)
