What's the difference between diapers and pull-ups? Pull-ups are mostly made of the same materials as diapers, with one difference: they have an elasticated waistband, which means toddlers can pull them up and down by themselves. This encourages independence and can be used in pull-ups potty training.
The main difference between pull-ups and overnight diapers is the snugness of the fit which helps to prevent leaks. Pull-ups use elastic around the waist and legs which can cause gaps and leaks, particularly at night. Overnight diapers are extra-absorbent, with some brands advertising up to 12 hours of protection.
Pull-ups have similar absorbency to diapers, so it may confuse your child to have pull-ups on during potty training. However, pull-ups are an excellent option for overnight use once you begin potty training.
Pull-ups absorb as readily as traditional diapers do, so there is no immediate feeling of wetness against the skin when a child pees. They are not made to hold as much waste as diapers, but any standard pull-up will absorb enough liquids to keep a child relatively dry and comfortable for quite a while.
Some brands even claim that since pull-ups are designed for older kids and nighttime use, that they may even be more absorbent. But across the board, almost without fail, real-life parents who have tried both say that pull-ups are less absorbent and much more prone to leaking than normal diapers.
Pull-ups have similar absorbency to diapers, so it may confuse your child to have pull-ups on during potty training. However, pull-ups are an excellent option for overnight use once you begin potty training. Up to 25% of boys and 15% of girls still have accidents overnight by age six.
