Did you have to wear Goodnites/DryNites as a kid for bedwetting

Im just curious how many people were lucky enough to be bedwetting when GoodNites were around. How did your parents know if you were running low on them? My mom never really cared if my packages of Goodnites were left for all to see after she got back from the store. It's odd because she knew I was self conscious about my bedwetting and GoodNites pull-ups. Usually she would just put them at the base of the staircase for me to take upstairs to the bathroom closet. All my siblings saw them but they never really bugged me about it...for the most part
 
My mom bought me my first pack of goodnites in 96 when I was 9 and had to carry them around the store. She would check my underwear drawer each week and go buy me a couple of packs of goodnites. My bedwetting problems and having to wear diapers wasn't a family secret. There was times when my parents went shopping and we had friends over and when they got home we had to help unload the car. A few people asked who the diapers were for. My mom would tell me in front of everyone to go put my pullups in my room.

I kind of wish Goodnites had been around to be honest. But they weren't and after I was out of diapers I'd just wake up soaked and embarrassed. For some reason, I was rarely bothered by my frequent daytime wetting but I felt my bedwetting was somewhat humiliating
 
Unfortunately I didn't have pullups or disposables I had to wear cloth disposable came around early 80 then pullups 90 so I didn't have the pleasure but to alert my parents they got me wee alert I dispised it with every fiber!
 
Yeah Goodnites were my daily and nightly go-tos for the first half a year after my injury. I even played Tennis in them. Later Unique Wellness Briefs and pull-ups would become my go-to diapers.
 
When I had those issues I can't remember when GN came out but I also hid it at first(think I was like 11 when I started mowing lawns & by 14 I was working in kitchens so money wasn't an issue) and I don't remember everything the mom n pop pharmacy had though I vaguely remember seeing half manakins that modeled incont products and the messed up part though I don't know exactly how I felt as my memory sux but I do remember buying and using diapers and not sure where it was a night time issue but I don't think it was as bad as how I felt after I became paralyzed but I was also in a broken home with a dishrag birthgiver (as of yesterday unfortunately her name wasn't in the obituaries yet is it messed up I check weekly)
 
When we had to change for phys-ed class in middle school I was able to get my mom to let me wear goodnites instead of training pants and plastic pants on phys-ed days.

You forgot about other brands, such as Underjams/Ninjamas.
 
@bigtoddler96 You missed the whole point of the post. In the Incontinence Forum you need to pay attention to subject the OP writes about, not just cherry pick the points that interest you.
 
Yeah I wore Goodnites. My parents just had me order them online with their CC off of amazon.
 
I wore goodnights during middle school but but by the time I started 9th grade I switched to the green depends.

Goodnites were my go to favorite diaper from 14 years old to 19 years old. Then I had a late growth spurt and now can’t fit in them sadly lol
 
got to try one pack of goodnites when they first came out - the all white ones - and they leaked more than the diapers i was using so it was back to pamps and then tranquility youth. stoped bw by 8 - so mom always did the shopping
 
goodnites were not available till I was in late teens
was a bit snug when I tried them. Went through a few packs but went back to tape on diapers

Better than having to carry them around the store, no Amazon in the 90s
 
Unfortunately when I stopped wetting the bed (14y/old, 1995) goodnites weren’t in Spain yet, so when the kids diapers didn’t fit anymore I started using the small size of adult diapers. A bit later they started selling ‘‘em and doing tv commercials, I remember regretting not having them before when I needed 😅. Later I had the spinal injury (2005) and became IC but then not even to consider using goodnites instead of diapers, ‘course 🤣.
 
I just missed the advent of Goodnites when I was in my bedwetting phase (ended at age 9 in the mid-90s), but I wore regular Huggies Size 7 diapers instead. I just kept the diapers in my underwear drawer in my bedroom, and my mom kept track of the stock, but occasionally if I was running low I'd tell her. We just got my diapers when we went grocery shopping- I recall I never felt embarrassed because I could always say I had a younger sibling (which in fact I did). Then when we got home I just brought the package upstairs to my room and put the diapers in my drawer.
I remember seeing commercials for Goodnites when they came out and I was like "those would've been nice..." LOL.

Idk maybe they weren't size 7- 6 maybe? I just remember they were the largest size the store carried :think:
