thanks to karen and others who responded about the smelly dipe problem, increasing the temp of the wash seems to have solved it! hooray! :)
also i wanted to respond to those discussing bedwetter pants, training pants, pullups, etc.
my experience was that the bedwtter pants are too bulky, my DD (age 4) disliked that. we decided to stop using anything at night for her, but the toddlease does fit and works nice as a pull up, just snap it first, and let her pull on a cover over top. she is 4.5 and in the 99th percentile so i really think the toddlease would fit almost any kid in need of a night pull up.
i generally dont like any type of pull on training pant that cant also be unsnapped, because even a 2.5 year old will ocasionally still poop and pulling off a poopie pull on is anything but pleasant. so for me its toddlease all the way. right now i have a 4 year old DD who is trained and no longer in need of anything: a 2.5 year old ds who is not at all trained (i think he could be but he's not interested) and is wearing toddleease full time and we use those as pull ups when he wants to try the potty and he will stay in toddlease until he is completely trained day and night: and a 1 year old ds wearing large sandies and also OS (actually 2.5 year old ds also wears the OS but they dont work as pull ups). so imo the training pants and bedwetter pants are not really necessary because sandies can do it all.
the idea behind training pants is supposed to be that kids will start to go and catch themselves, so the training pants just get a little wet and dont have to catch much, but i've never seen a kid just go a little! they either pee or they don't.
My two cents...and thanks again to those who responded to my post!
PS I want to try small sandies relaly bad...i might need another kid so i can!
