Hi all,

Noticed a few of you have shared your experience with MCNs in a recent thread, but didn't want to hijack.

I'm thinking of trying MCNs for my 3.5yr DD (with a view to using MCNs for Bub no.2 when he arrives later this year), who is daytime toilet trained but still wakes up wet most mornings. Have always used disposables, she currently wears Huggies Nappy Pants to bed.

Does anyone have experience in using night MCNs - pull up style - and could point me in the direction of brands to try. A quick search of the brands mentioned in the other thread has only led me to the RAWr Toddler Pull Up. Are there any others?

Thank you so much.

This a thread I started fairly recently. http://www.essential...-nappy-pull-up/ I’ve been super happy with rawr, but I only bought her shells because I had lots of inserts already.

Thanks again Riotproof, after reading your thread I have just ordered a RAWr to try - my DD, like yours is also on the small side, not quite 14kgs. I hope I also have success with fit!

I find them pretty good. Just a note to wash the inserts a few times to build up absorbency, though Erin is very good st sending helpful emails so she will be able to help with any queries.

Super undies are also pretty good
