  • well quite a daughter when first learning would wear it through the night and never woke up to she had quite the hanging pullup in the morning...but it never leaked! they are usually pretty sturdy just like a diaper! plus so you know...if they do number 2, dont bother pulling it down thier legs, the sides rip open easily! i learned that one the hard way!!!! LOL

  • About the same as a diaper if they fit well.

  • I don't know about how much they will hold, but wanted to caution you about using pull-ups. They are just glorified diapers, more expensive and they inhibit your child's progress with toilet training. When you begin toilet training, keep your son in diapers until you see that he is having alot of success with him telling you that he needs to go potty, then change him to regular underwear. I have experienced this with my first born and many of my preschool students. Also utiize a reward of some type to motivate him to want to try.

  • that does work too...depending on the type of diaper..if you have the cheapie ones that have the sticky tabs instead of velcro then your actually wasting money because once you unstic them they never THAT case pullups are more ecenomical.
