I might have just found the best pull on cloth training pant for nights for toddlers. For Real.
There are a total of 3 “mainstream” options when it comes to cloth training pants worthy of bedtime. I’ve now tried them all, and it’s of my opinion the Mother-ease bedwetting pants are officially the best.
In the potty training process finding pull on overnight cloth diapers can be difficult. While I know some people continue to use cloth diapers during nights post-potty training, but my toddler was really put off by the desire to lay down and put on a diaper. I really just wanted a simple and easy pull-on cloth diaper for nights that could be up for the challenge of a full bladder. This is that.
What About the Competition?
Super Undies suck because their pocket structure to keep the insert in makes using them tricky and full of fumbles.
Omaiki Hero are less aweomse because they are also a little weird to put on. Mostly, they just have a weird bulge, and I tried to go up a size for my chunk’s waist and ended up with gaps in the legs. The sizing didn’t work for us, but this system is second best.
Mother-ease Bedwetting Pants
Mother-ease is a Canadian Cloth Diaper Manufacturer producing cloth diapers in Ontario. They are a small family-owned business. You can buy it at many Canadian Cloth Diaper retailers or directly from Mother-ease.
The Mother-ease bedwetting pants come in three sizes with options fitting kids 30-60 pounds. This means these pants are best suited to full-sized preschoolers. We purchased the size small (40-50 lbs) for my toddler, and it fits a little big but I feel it’s just right for ease of use. Learn more about the Big Kid Training Pant here.
This is an all in one cloth training pants. There are no pieces to assemble, and no pockets to stuff. It does mean you can’t add absorbency easily, but it does mean you don’t have to try to carefully hold the absorbency in place while helping our child pull on or off the training pant.
It features a cotton terry inner with a loop attached front to back for additional absorbency. The inner is lined with more cotton terry and features a rolled elastics similar to the Blueberry Simplex along the top and legs. The exterior is a %100 polyester waterproof.
My Love for the Mother-ease Bedwetting Pants
It’s not just because Melissa & Alex at Mother-ease are amazing that I love the Mother-ease Bedwetting pant, it’s because it’s everything I wanted in an overnight cloth diaper for big kids.
- It pulls on and off with zero fumble. It’s so easy my toddler can do it himself which is a check in the right direction of independence.
- It’s relatively absorbent to catch most accidents. 21 ounces is not heavy wetter status but it is a decent amount for most kids. If you needed more, you could add a Geffen Baby insert or something hemp to hemp.
- It comes in bigger sizes. While limited, the size selection on the Mother-ease cloth training pant is gracious. I trust this size to fit him for another 12 pounds for sure. It’s tough for cloth diaper companies to make even bigger sizes, it’s such a small market. If you’re looking for sizes up to 12Y, check out the Omaiki Hero, another made in Canada brand.
- It dries reasonably well in my dryer because the cotton is not as dense as my hemp/bamboo blended cloth training pants.
The Mother-ease Bedwetting Pant look absolutely ridiculous on my toddler. It’s not trim and part of that is because I sized up (at 38lbs, I was wary about which size to go, I went up because my toddler is thick, not thin). But whatever, it works and that’s what I love. He’s now 40 pounds as I publish this and they still fit. I’m glad I sized up because who knew we’d have a growth spurt.
The absorbency is subpar for heavy wetters, but if you need to customize your absorbency, then consider a pocket style bedwetting pant.
Would I recommend the Mother-ease Bedwetting Pant?
Yes. A Million Times over.
Don’t ever think about Super Undies. The Mother-ease Bedwetting Pant is the easiest pull on and off option for preschoolers to use. It’s simple, absorbent, and easy to maintain.
Don’t worry, Mother-ease is breaking into some fun prints with unicorns and dinos, it’s not just solids anymore.
These are totally worth the $33-$38 CDN price tag. Buy 2-3, and save $5.
