Pull Up Question---

For those of you who put your kids in pull ups at night and they stay dry..

Do you re use them again? Or do you just throw them out?

I have been throwing them out.

I throw them out, it's like reusing underwear IMO

thanks. I threw the pair out this morning and thought that this isnt even peed in......

She goes weeks without peeing at night then she goes out of the blue. I have been soaked twice since she pees sometime after she climbs in our bed in the middle of the night. For the most part she stays dry, but I really dont like changing sheets, giving her a bath, and taking a shower in the middle of the night...........she might go once or twice in the entire month.

She only stays dry at nap most of the time. If she's dry after nap she wears it to bed.

If dry I will re-use a couple times... it's not like she's in it for a full 24 hours and running around. I give it up to 3 night uses.

I don't use pull ups at night on the kids, but two of them wear a diaper to bed. Anna's is dry 9 days out of 10; I always reuse it unless the stuffing has got bunchy. That means a diaper will typically last 3 nights. Why waste them? Any sweat issues are being wicked into the diaper anyway.

back when max was in them......if he woke up dry, he put it under his blankets....and when he got dressed again for bed, he used to put it back on......UNLESS he took a shower, then he just put a clean one on!!! maybe not the most hygienic thing......but when your buying pullups that are $20/ for like 18 big kid pullups......we reused!!!!! i had to buy them for 5 yrs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always reused when Gweny wore pull-ups to bed. Those things are way too expensive not to!

Jax never wakes up dry, but if he did, I'd reuse it.

Thanks for yalls insight!! I just get so tired of throwing out the dry ones, so might try re using them for a night or two to try to save some money.

We reuse unless they're all bunchy. It all depends on what he wants. Sometimes he still wants to wear it even if it's bunchy.

I tried to reuse one once but then the next night he totally leaked through everywhere. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with re-using but I told myself it did - because it was 'formed' to his body and more lose than a fresh one so now I just throw them out but if reuse works I'd do it.

Huh...I never even thought about it. I throw them away every time - and he's dry more often than he's wet.
