The best overnight diapers and training pants are life-changers for both mom and baby, since nothing ruins a good night’s sleep quite like an accident. It seems that every baby and toddler is capable of voiding their body weight while they sleep, and when accidents happen, everything’s wet —onesie, bedding set, crib mattress — and both baby and bed need to be changed.
Luckily, a simple switch to an overnight diaper or nighttime training pants can be a total game-changer when it comes to snoozin’ the whole night through. Whether you’re looking for overnight diapers for babies or toddlers in sizes 1, 2, or 3 (plus), or you need discreet disposable underwear for your older kiddo to wear during sleepovers, we’ve got you covered (team Easy Ups vs. Pull Ups aside). From newcomers like The Honest Company and Hello Bello, to staple brands like Huggies, Pampers, and more, here are the best overnight diapers and training pants for heavy wetters and potty trainees.
So go ahead, grab your mom pajamas, put the kids in their jammies, and get ready for a few more blissful Zzz’s. And, be sure to check out our mom-approved cloth diaper, swim diaper, and non-toxic diaper picks, too!
Best Overnight Diapers for Babies & Toddlers
In the realm of overnight diapers, unsurprisingly, The Honest Company doesn’t disappoint (yesss!). These super-absorbent nappies score points for having the brand’s trademark adorable designs,— Sleepy Sheep and Starry Night — but more importantly, they’ll keep your LO comfortably dry. They’re also stuffed with sustainable, plant-based fluff pulp, plus they’re free of chlorine processing, chemical bleaches, fragrances, latex, and lotions — basically, what loyal buyers know and love about Honest diapers. Snag some nighttime diapers in your Diapers + Wipes subscription bundle, and you’ll never run out of the essentials again.
“My son is almost 2 and he has been wearing them since the day he came home from the hospital,” says mom Katie Poe. “I feel good about putting my son in these because they are free from many chemicals. He’s never leaked out of these.”
,Maybe you don’t want to deal with having two sets of diapers or your child is a super-soaker who still needs some *extra* protection. Whatever the case, the Sposie Overnight Diaper Booster Pads should do the trick. Offering an additional layer of protection, these pads adhere to the inside of the diapers you already have (kind of like a maxi pad) and can be positioned where your boy or girl need it most (you get it). Free of fragrances, latex, chlorine, and phthalates, these pads are hypoallergenic and safe for newborns (but the bigger size is suitable up to diaper size 6).
Shares Christina, “I have a toddler who had been a stomach sleeper since she was able to roll over and for almost a year we were either waking up in the middle of the night to change her diaper or we were waking up in the morning to urine-soaked pajamas and bedding. We tried many different diaper brands but the main issue was that for a tummy sleeper, all the urine was concentrated in the front of the diaper and there just was not enough absorption. This is a product I have started telling my friends about because it works so well and has saved me from having to wash sheets and pajamas every single morning. If you have a tummy sleeper or a really sound sleeper, then you won’t regret trying these if you are in need of a ‘no leak’ solution.”
Designed with “pajama-like softness,” Huggies Overnites also feature a SnugFit waistband and Double Grip Strips for a close, leak-free fit. Free of fragrances, lotions, parabens, and elemental chlorine, they’re also hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. And, thanks to the DryTouch Liner that sucks up moisture, your LO will stay dry and cozy for up to 12 hours. That means less chafing and diaper rash for them … and more snoozin’ for you.
“I’ve tried just about every name brand and off-brand type of diapers,” says Katie A. “For everyday use, I don’t mind using anything. But for night time … that’s a different story. A super wet diaper or a leaky diaper can change the night game drastically. I personally think that these Huggies Overnites are AMAZING.” As far as her kids’ transition into their cribs and sleeping through the night, she says, “Wearing these diapers was really key in helping that happen.”
For fans of regular Pamper’s Swaddlers, this is a natural choice for an overnight diaper. These offer the same signature softness as the OG line, only with more wetness protection — up to 12 hours, to be exact. Furthermore, ventilated air channels offer optimum breathability to help keep Baby’s bum dry. And a final clever feature for the littlest sleepers: The front of the diaper has an “umbilical cord notch,” meaning it dips down to keep the bellybutton uncovered.
“We purchased these for my son, who just couldn’t sleep throughout the night,” says Alexander Wall. “He’d wake up and be wet and leaking. We switched to these overnight diapers and it has done the trick. Sure, he wakes up to a full diaper, but he isn’t wet or leaking. They’re a little more pricey than the regular diapers, but worth it for a full night’s sleep.”
Yes, this popular green brand has overnight diapers, too! The super-absorbent core is also earth-friendly, thanks to sustainably-sourced wood fluff pulp. (It’s even FSC certified by the Forest Stewardship Council … pretty legit for a diaper.) But buyers also love what’s not in Seventh Generation diapers, like chlorine bleaching, lotions, and fragrances. Add in the cute and colorful designs that make them easy to distinguish from BB’s daily diapers, and you’ve got a solid, clean option for preventing middle-of-the-night leaks.
“We have tried so many diapers for overnight for our tough-to-fit, super sensitive-skinned little guy,” explains samanthastevens. “These are the MOST ABSORBENT DIAPER! And they wick away moisture beautifully. The overnight diaper often feels like a bowling ball by morning, but leaking is not a problem and no more rashes! Great for heavy wetters, long trips, hard to fit kids, bigger kids, and those with sensitive skin or diaper rash issues.”
While it’s not exclusively an overnight diaper, with Coterie, you don’t need separate nappies for day and nighttime. These ultra-absorbing, fast-wicking diapers are will keep Baby’s bum dry all night long, plus they’re made with clean ingredients and feel soft as flannel. You can get a Coterie subscription so you never run out (renew by text!), which is one less thing you’ll have to worry about. And if you’re unsure whether you want to make the commitment, no worries; snag a free 10-diaper trial pack to see if it’s the best diaper you (and your little) have ever tried.
With over 400 reviews on the Coterie website, this diaper has amassed a 5-star following. “The ONLY diaper that we use,” raves Jennifer P. “After having six children and three grandchildren, Coterie is the only diaper that is so incredibly soft, perfect fit, holds moisture away from baby, lasts all night long, and we’ve never ever had a blowout or rash. No other brand has come close to Coterie’s level of perfection, they’re incredible.”

With a full 360 stretchy waist band, your little one won’t have any issue when they’ve gotta go. “These are a lifesaver,” said one Mama on Amazon. “We only used Pampers diapers for my son and we LOVE these training pants — (1) because they are just plain awesome and (2) they literally have trains on them (which my toddler loves). These training pants easily go up and down, but won’t accidentally break open like diapers of other brands. The sides can be torn for times you need to remove a stinky diaper and what not. These are great and we will continue to buy them!! Love Pampers!!”
Best Disposable Overnight Underwear for Bedwetting & Potty Trainees
Affordable, eco-friendly, and featuring precious designs, Hello Bello has it all … including an overnight diaper! Kristin Bell and Dax Shephard’s baby brand is in partnership with Walmart, but you can get a subscription on the Hello Bello website, too. And when you realize that you can “bundle” both day and night diapers, as well as other premium parent and baby products, you’re probably going to want to sign up. PS. Hello Bello diapers also free of lotion, fragrance, phthalates, and chlorine processing. Just note that the nighttime line starts at size 3.
“My son is sensitive to a lot of diaper brands and usually breaks out with a rash but not when using Hello Bello!” says a Walmart reviewer. “They are hypoallergenic and have a plant-derived core liner. These diapers are also super absorbent and last my son all night while he’s sleeping. I would definitely recommend these diapers to all moms and dads!”
Perhaps the most recognizable training pant, Huggies’ Pull-Ups is a tried and true parent favorite. With a near-perfect Amazon rating in over 1,800 reviews, this absorbent pull-on underwear is a natural next step for potty-goers-in-training. Nighttime Pull-Ups offer extra protection for overnight accidents, thanks to extra absorbency and a snug fit. They’re also designed with fun graphics (like these awesome Toy Story characters) that fade when wet. You can also unfasten the sides, which means less-mess changes as your little one learns.
“These are great for potty training,” explains N.T. “They’re great for the occasional accident or if my little boy pees a little before he gets to the potty. They’ve held up great even when he’s just full-on gone potty in them.”
Another Huggies product, Goodnites are specifically designed for bedwetting. With stretchy sides and a streamlined shape, these fit and feel like real underwear, plus they offer five-layer protection, double leg barriers, and they absorb odors, too. Available in sizes for kids from 28 to 125 pounds, they give sound sleepers and their parents peace of mind. And check out those super cool designs!
“Our 6-year-old son is on the autism spectrum and has ADHD,” explains mom Kate Mahoney. “Potty training took a long time and was difficult but we’ve been mostly there for about a year. That being said, night time is a different story. In the meantime, our big boy doesn’t fit in the largest diapers anymore so these have been the perfect next step. He pees in them every night and they do a good job of keeping him, and his PJ’s, and the bed dry.”
Parents of sleepover-ready kids, these are for you. UnderJams are designed to be discreet and can accommodate kids weighing 38 to 85 pounds. They’re made with quiet, cloth-like material and a stretchy waistband, plus they’re breathable, hypoallergenic, and have a low-rise cut so they don’t peek out over PJ pants. The best part about UnderJams is how much they look and feel like the real thing, but thanks to NightLock technology, overnight accidents are NBD.
“I’ve been doing an alternating subscription between these and the GoodNites…the GoodNites are thicker upon handling,” says Darling Harlet. “However, these are just as absorbent and they actually handle leaks better due to how high they go up! If you have boys you know that’s how leaks happen! My son is 4 and is completely potty trained EXCEPT NUMBER ONE at night and I’m not pushing him. He has Aspergers and this is the least of our concerns; I am just so relieved to find a great high waisted pull up for him!”
Good news, Hello Bello diaper fans! Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s baby brand just released training pants to keep potty accidents at bay. Made super-soft and easy to pull on and off, they feature clean materials, like sustainably-harvested fluff pulp and a plant-derived core liner, that are safe for your baby’s (er – big kid’s) bum. Even better is what they’re made without, including latex, lotions, artificial fragrances, phthalates, chlorine processing, and more.
While your little can wear these at night, for optimal assurance, you may want to stick with nighttime diapers at the onset of training. Good thing you can bundle both (and pick from super-cute designs!) with a Hello Bello subscription box!
