Ok Since we got 5t-6t Pull Ups now, I also found something even more interesting. They are now making overnights in a size 7

I was wondering when they were gonna do this, but this now raises another question....

Whats the point of goodnites xs when you can just wear huggies overnites?

Honestly, I don’t know. Maybe parents have been asking for these new sizes? I’m just excited for the 5t 6t, as I can use extenders, sadly I can’t fit into size 7’s. Also these new products are putting a dent in my wallet.
 
Interesting. I wonder if/when they’ll start to hit store shelves.

I don't think the Huggies Overnights Size 7 compete with the Goodnites XS. A lot of kids at that age have "Big Kid" pride, and they'd absolutely take the Goodnites over the Huggies diaper.

However, the 5T-6T Pull-ups definitely do compete with the Goodnites XS. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if they replace Goodnites XS.

diapers could be easier to use in some situations, kids that are not ready to potty train at all and need the protection of a diaper at night don't stop growing up suddenly and some are hitting the limits of size 6, and some autistic kids or special need kids parents may prefer standard diapers vs a Pull-Ups, even if they have velcro on the sides, usually the diapers are more absorbent.

I'm trying to figure out why 2 boxes of the exact same product has different amounts. 0ne box is 60 diapers and the other is 68 diapers. I mean what's the point. A different size boxes for 8 extra diapers. Why not just 60 or 68?
Am I missing something?
 
I'm curious if they're taller than size 7 little movers.
 
It seems to me that Kimberly-Clark is coming around to the fact that there IS a market share for larger diapers.

I saw on the Walmart website had size 7 overnights in the advertising pictures, but it’s strange that it hasn’t shown up on the website yet.

One reason could be some of the big box stores like to have different quantity packages, because if they do price matching then it isn't the exact same item as their competitor. (so they never actually need to price match) Amazon just sells everything so they may have wound up with both. Another reason could be stores that say want to keep all of them regardless of size under a particular price may be able to do that at 60 but not 68. The big boxes and other large retailers buy enough to have that kind of say in packaging.

Back to there being size 7 now, I never understood why the overnights were not offered in larger sizes, I would think there would be more demand for an overnight product in that age range of a size 7. Even though potty training seems to be later than in the past there are still plenty of children that are trained between 2-3, and may still need diapers at night for a year or two. (yes I now many wet much longer than that but beyond 4 or 5 most children are more independent and would probably be better off with a pullup anyway)

The overnights are a more expensive diaper (in fact it looks like they cost more than the xs and s/m goodnites) but another reason to go with diapers instead of pull-ups is they often cost less, and I am sure for many families that is a consideration when choosing products.

Pretty interesting to see them finally make the size 7 for overnights. One fan dream they would keep going.
 
I do wonder if the baby diaper companies(in the US) saw the need for larger sized diapers in conjunction with there really weren't many options above size 6. For a while not many made a size 7, than it seemed like everyone had a 7. But it does seem like the overnight lines seem to lack behind, like well after every brand had size 6 not many had a sz6 overnight and it almost seem like when everyone got a size 7 than the size 6 overnights came out. The only brand that bad a 7 overnight was HEB & maybe another. Also will say in the US it does seem like diapers in particular all ages that their behind the curve like I don't know the difference but think UK has sz8 or many higher quality medical diapers are made in the EU.

I will say from experience, hearing & talking to many special needs parents once their child out grows sz6&7 there really isn't a next step or much guidance. Youth diapers are often scaled down adult diapers besides Abena there really isn't many brands that make diapers to fit or designed for someone of a smaller stature and many parents and caregivers are lost because even youth-small diapers of the brands available not many provide a smooth transition or fitment.

So to kind of answer your question I do know many parents that their kids fit into a sz7 but the absorbency isn't rated for the older kids but potentially if there was a sz7 overnight it might provide the protection they need or while they transition to other diapers also like someone mentioned because society makes kids and others feel diapers are only for babies and even though a sz7 nighttime might provide better protection they might mentally not want to use a diaper and want to use a pull-up & there some that use boosters with p/u's because they don't want to potentially traumatized their kid forcing them to use diapers vs p/u. Everyone is different their are some kids that don't mind wearing diapers and some do, which I think is a societal thing or how they are raise, I am on the fence when parents make statements like diapers are for babies only and conversation for different day.

But honestly it does come down to the product itself, like I had someone looking for something better than GN's, I recommended boosters or a brand called Ecoable they make a hybrid pullup cloth diaper that has side snaps but it's basically a pocket diaper but because the child can pull them up themselves they didn't have an issue wearing them even though technically they were wearing a cloth pocket diaper.

It's like they both pulled the Uno reverse card on each other
 
The other thing I think worth mentioning and not sure if they still do it but some pullups made for potty training used to have a layer were it allowed for the wearer to feel wetness think Huggies used to call it their cool layer or something like that.
 
I am suspicious that KC is more likely trying to change the North American diaper market to make it more similar to the European market. Rather than proving larger diapers for older kids, they seem to be just reorganizing their products to sell 8 consumer products (nb-7) rather than only 7 (nb-6), but still only covering the same age and weight range.

They are just squeezing more products into the same niche. If the size 7 really was meant for older kids, then they would be larger than the size 6 which they don't really seem to be. Also, the kid on the packaging doesn't look old enough to even need size 6 much less anything larger.

Anyone order them and measure/share pictures? Hoping they’re a true size 7!
