      decent pull up pants from tesco

      When my daughter was younger I predominantly used huggies pull ups but on months when money was tight we would also use sainsburys brand pull ups and also these Tesco easy fit pants. At 3 years old my daughter is of course now potty trained so has no need for these, although she does have the occasional accident at night. Recently I had my 2 year old niece over for the weekend to sleepover and so I popped to Tesco and bought a pack of these now called - Tesco baby easy fit pants. In a size 4, the pack contains 22 pants for £3.55 which is pretty decent priced if you ask me!

      There is no picture but the pants come in a plastic red carrie, and can be opened along perforation at the top to reveal the pants all lined up. As they are packed in so tightly, pulling one out does tend to bring our 2 or 3 but once it eases up it's not so annoying lol.

      The pants themselves are similar to a nappy, only they are complete pants that can only be pulled up and down like a underwear. I used to prefer the pull up types that had velcro at the side as these were easy to adjust, but of course for potty training purposes they are ideal at getting little ones used to the concept of pulling on knickers/pants.

      The pants are of course rather thin, not the one pee = causes leakage kind but I would say for wearing during the night by the morning time my daughter, and more recently my niece would wake and it would feel pretty full and need to come off straight away. It contains the pee well and it didn't feel soaking but the smell could be noticed pretty much off the bat. It wasn't that my daughter/niece urinated a lot but it was just of course I think these are designed more for the odd accident rather than actually holding waste in. I definitely wouldn't advise these for poo, and personally my niece never (nor did my daughter in the past) do a number 2 in these but they don't seem like they would cope well with holding it in!

      The design of the pants are good in that they have a slightly elasticated waist, but still large enough to not feel as though squashing the child in. It's rather a girly design as the pants have a purple trim but there is a picture of a lion and a monkey on the front which I guess makes it quite playful and still fun for boys and girls.

      Overall I really like these pants and would definitely recommend. They do the job well for potty training, and whilst they are not great at holding it in, it should be remembered they are not really designed for proper soiling - thats what nappies are for!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good alternative to the leading brand

      I am currently potty training my middle daughter and so far she is just about dry in the day time. It is still early days but we have gone straight into pants and ditched the day time nappies. She still requires nappies at night time but to try and make her feel a little more grown up, I decided to try Pull-Up's as an alternative to the more baby style nappies

      I have always been a huge fan of Tesco's nappies, they are brilliantly priced compared to the leading brands and I think they are a great quality nappy which have always fitted and performed really well.

      As I trusted the Tesco's products so much, I decided to opt for their Pull-Up nappies instead of the leading brand. They were quite a lot cheaper costing a reasonable £3.40 for a pack of 20 Pull-Up's.

      I started using the pack straight away and was really impressed by the quality when I opened the pack. They fitted my daughter really well and she seemed to find them really comfortable. They were fairly easy to pull up although I'm not sure my daughter would be able to pull them up and down independantly which is how they are intended to be used.

      My daughter did seem to like them and differentiate between them and normal nappies. I just wanted to make her feel more grown up and I think these nappies did the job.

      With regards to how they performed, well overall they did really well. Most nights my daughter is dry until morning but some nights she doesn't make it all the way through. When she does do a wee, it does tend to be quite a big one and therefore it needs a very good nappy to hold it.

      With these Pull-Up's we have had a few leakages. It doesn't happen very regularly but she does quite upset when it does happen. For this reason alone, next time I buy a packet of Pull-Up's I will perhaps try the Huggies version and see how they compare and then I will let you know whether they are worth the extra pennies.

        Would recommend these as a cheap alternative to the leading brands.

        I use these pull ups for my eldest son at night. I always buy Tesco own brand nappies and have found them to be good quality and a reasonable price.

        They stand up well to overnight use, although my son probably only wets in them once or twice during the night, and I like the fact that he can pull them down and back up himself when he goes to the toilet at bedtime and in the morning. They stay up well without leaving red marks and seem comfortable to wear.

        I have tried them on my younger son who's just turned 2 and found they were not quite capable of holding 12 hours worth of his wee (but not many nappies are!) but they aren't really designed to so that's not a huge problem.

        The nappies have animals on the front and back, not that my son ahs ever really noticed - I don't really see the point in pictures on nappies! they also have a sticky tab for rolling them up when used, which is useful.
        To remove the pants you either take them down or tear the sides apart.

        I have only had one bad batch of these, in one packet about half of the nappies had come apart down one of the tearable sides. However this has only happened once and didn't put me off buying them again.

        I decided to try the Tesco's own training pants for my daughter. She is dry during the day and wears knickers instead of a nappy or pullups. I only put a nappy on her for long car journeys, nap and bedtimes. I had read a couple of opinions on this product saying how good they were and decided upon them instead of the Huggies pullups. They are £3.99 in Tesco compared with £4.95 for the Huggies pullups. And you get 17 in a pack. I was extremely disappointed with them. Every night when I have put her in them she has been soaking wet the next morning. She has been getting very upset as she doesn't like being wet and as she is still learning would rather be dry as she knows she gets praise for that. I have comforted her as I know it is not her fault. But they have also made her sore. My daughter is not in anyway fat and in actual fact is quite lean. But they seem to be so tight around the top of her legs that she is left with elastic marks and rubbing marks. Also as they are not soaking up enough she is getting nappy rash. I am not going to even bother finishing the packet. I will be taking it back to Tesco. They do advertise that if you are not happy with something you can bring it back. So will do that. I intend to buy the huggies ones in the future. The medium size fit her fine and do not rub or leak. For my daughters comfort I feel it is worth paying that bit more. I am disappointed as I recently found Tesco had improved the quality of their normal nappies and they were as good as the other leading brands. Perhaps they should look at the pullup training pants again.

          This is a total rewrite, I`ve left the original at the bottom to show how pathetic it was. These are usually advertised as training pants for when you are trying to get a toddler to use the potty, but I`ve found that they are also a godsend when you have an older child who is a bedwetter. My son is 6 and still wets the bed on a regular basis, and so far these are the best pull-ups I`ve found. I went through a period of about 3 months fairly recently where I stopped using them, this was just to see if the bedwetting would improve without them. As it didn`t I have just started using them again because the amount of washing I was getting everyday was just too much to cope with. The reason I find these better is because the larger sizes are a fair bit bigger than huggies largest size, and these fit my 6yr old perfectly. They come in a bright yellow packet, so it`s pretty hard to miss them, the smaller sizes include 17 pairs and the larger size includes 15 pairs. The pictures that were on these when I first started using them were of spot the dog, now they have changed to pictures of smaller animals. Also printed on them is the words front and back in between the animal pictures, this feature is brilliant for the younger child so they know they are getting them the right way round. The elesticated leg cuffs are pretty roomy and do not pinch the skin, so your child won`t wake up with the tell tale red mark around the top of their legs, the same also applies to the waistband. As far as absorbency goes, my son very rarely gets any leaks even though he`s a very heavy bedwetter. The material they`re made from is also very soft to the touch outside and inside, and they`re not too bulky either. For younger children who may well have accidents of the smelly variety, the sides just tear apart for a clean and easy removal so you don`t have to drag it all down their legs. All in all I`m very impresse
          d with the Tesco training pants and the only time I go for a different brand is when Tescos are out of stock, sadly though this happens quite frequently because they are very popular, and at only £3.99 I`m not surprised. ** ORIGINAL** I go through a lot of these for my son who is still a bedwetter at the age of 6.They are good value for money and very absorbant.Without these I would have an enormous amount of extra washing.They are cheaper than Huggies pullups and a bit bigger as well which is good as my son is older than most users.The disadvantage is that they are very popular so my store is always running out and I have to resort to buying another brand.

            I have just been through the joys of potty training with my daughter who is 2 ¼ yrs. She is now, more or less, accident free when we are at home, but still needs a little help when we are out and about. I use proper knickers at home, but when we were out I use disposable training pants. I first brought Huggies Pull Ups. They worked fine in terms of keeping her dry if she had an accident, but after I had been using them for a week I noticed a red sore patch of both sides of her body. I couldn't work out what had caused it. I hadn't changed anything I used on her or to wash her clothes. Then I put a pair of Huggies on her and noticed that the red marks lined up exactly with the side seams on the training pants. They are made with tear away sides so they are easy to get off, but the Huggies have thick seams with a ridge on the inside. These were rubbing my daughter and making her sore. So I stopped using the Huggies, and looked round for another brand. I found that Tesco also make their own training pants. These are just as absorbent as the Huggies, keeping her very dry if the odd accident happens. They have an elasticated waist and leg cuffs to stop any leaking. They also have tear away side like the Huggies, but they don't have thick seams, so they are much softer, and are not rubbing her legs. The other big advantage to the Tesco pants is the price difference. Currently Huggies are £4.95 for 17 pairs, while the Tesco training pants are only £3.99 for the same number of pants. The Tesco pants come in two sizes, medium for 10-16kg, and large for 15-25kg, so most children who are potty training will be able to fit them. The only slight problem is that not every store has them. I live near three Tescos and only one has them regularly. However I have been asking at the other ones, and both have promised that they will start stocking them "soon".

              Tesco’s own brand training pants. Tesco’s training pants have my money. They are sold in two sizes, the medium caters for smaller toddlers and come in packets of 18, and the large size is suitable for larger toddlers and older children and comes in packs of 15.Costing about a pound less than branded disposable training pants they are snug fitting and quite adequate. Reasonably priced, they are absorbent and economical with minimal leakage. My 2 year old has a thing about disposable nappies, now that she is a big girl she removes them with vigour. Insistent that she still needed protection during the night and whilst sleeping in the afternoon, I quite by accident discovered Tesco’s own brand whilst en route to our holiday destination, fearing puddles in the car seat I stopped in to Tesco’s and bought their own brand, as they were on a special deal, I was a little reluctant as I normally use branded nappies, but felt that it was a risk that wasn’t to expensive to take. Not only was I surprised by the price, but also the quality of this product was quite astounding. It was capable of coping with an entire night of toddler wee’s, and was still easily removable without disintegrating in the morning. Both the front and back of the softly covered pants are printed with animals and the words front or back written on it in order to avoid confusion on which way round they should be worn. They are fairly discreet under leggings and tracksuit trousers, and are ideal worn under dresses. My toddler has no difficulty in either pulling them down nor up again, and can now with a little coaching do both of these independently. The elastic on the legs and waist are tight, but not too tight, and loose enough to allow easy access without any restriction of movement. Disappointed that my own local Tesco’s store was not stocking them, I requested that they did, and was pleased to
              receive a phone call the very next day from Tesco’s to inform me that they would be stocking their own brand shortly, since then they have continually stocked them and I have always been able to get them when needed. I feel confident that my child is certainly benefiting from close fitting reliable training pants that I believe are of a higher standard than the leading brands, which is helping to prevent those little accident that can be frustrating and demoralising for both parent and child. In short, highly recommended.
