Alright, you asked about the Super Undies Nighttime Undies and how they would compare to the Omaiki Hero Nighttime cloth training pants for bedwetting. I’ll do a separate comparison post in the coming weeks, but today I bring to you a general review of the Super Undies Nighttime Undies

Super Undies Nighttime Undies
Super Undies Nighttime Undies is a pull-on shell. The Super Undies Nighttime Underwear is sold without inserts. They can be purchased separately as needed and come in two different varieties: microfibre and hemp/bamboo. I didn’t know about the hemp/bamboo and ordered microfibre at the retailer clearing out stock.
It’s a large PULL ON plastic pant that is customisable. The exterior is two layers of waterproof material. The second layer is the print of the diaper. It’s a while shell with a print on top. The print is only stitched at the seams and does have a weird opening. This opening is not suitable for overnight snacks but could be used as a storage pouch for your favourite toys. #justkidding.
Thick, soft elastics encase the waist and legs of the Super Undies Nighttime Underwear diaper shell giving a comfortable fit for all kids. These are easy to pull on and off and come in sizes 0-3 (check out their sizing chart here).
The interior is unlike anything I’ve seen before and I’m unsure how to describe it to you. The insert is tucked into this opening and fits under the left and right, front and back of this hole? I’ll try to capture it in the image below.
As per inserts, you could really pair the Super Undies Nighttime Underwear with whatever you want. If you have been cloth diapering for years and you’re toddler/preschooler or young child needs overnight protection (and you’re tired of purchasing disposable pull ups for nights) then you might just use what you already own to tuck into the opening.
Super Undies sells two versions of the Super Undies Nighttime Inserts: Microfiber and Bamboo/Hemp. I have the microfiber insert and much like my previous feelings on the subject, I’m not a huge fan. It is a two piece insert. The large three layer insert features a pocket to which you add an additional two-layer microfibre insert inside for overnight bedwetting protection. The insert is contoured to lay perfectly inside the Nighttime Underwear with a layer of wicking jersey to protect your child from the microfiber.
If you are interested in a natural fibre option – you might check out Canadian manufactured Omaiki Hero Nighttime Pants.
I’m not a fan of the microfibre insert. This is because I’m not a fan of microfibre and because it is only five layers of microfibre. 5 layers is not nearly enough absorbency for my moderate wetting child and I swap it out for a GroVia size 3 prefold with a Geffen Baby Booster.
I don’t like trying to put the insert into the weird open pocket style concept and then onto my child. Maybe there is a trick I’m missing but this whole process is just awkward. I usually find myself doing a little jiggle and jive and feel that I’m not able to let him do this step independently (regardless if I’m using the insert or my own combo). I wish there was a snap, like in the Best Bottom Trainer, and I could snap in my choice of absorbency. #dreaming.
It is a big, bulky, fit. These do fit a little on the bigger size and I ordered a Size 1 (2-3 years) for my 38lb, 39″+, 3/4T sized kid. This size fits him just fine, if anything a bit big but I don’t think we’d want to order the size 0. Super Undies list waist and thigh measurements, but truthfully, who has time for that when impulse shopping at midnight?
Super Undies Nighttime Undies do contain the mess. For us, the beds is always dry and clean in the morning and we have had zero wet or sloppy mornings. Pulling down a poop is always a gong show, but because of the big gracious fit, we can usually keep the mess off the legs.
When it comes to reusable options for your bedwetting young child there are very limited choices on the market. Super Undies Nighttime Undies is a great choice for anyone looking to customize your nighttime absorbency for the size of your child. They aren’t really my favourite system and I don’t think they are perfect, but they work. I am curious to try the hemp insert over the microfibre (hard pass).
Since writing this post and before hitting publish, I chatted with a few people and it seems if you have a skinnier version of a toddler than mine leaks and gaps with the legs are a problem. My guy seems to fill in the diaper really well and we never had any problems, but be cautious if you have a tinnier tyke.
My only recommendation is don’t be disappointed if the 5 layers of microfibre don’t work for you. I would probably try something else if you know you have a heavy wetter.
