Ideal for all stages of training, giving you the confidence to head out for car trips, to the shops or nanas house, these shorts style training pants really destress training. Also ideal for bigger kids who are in the last stage of their night training journey.

Purchase ONE super comfortable shorts style pant 

These pants have an extra large, absorbent, waterproof pad sewn in at front and back. It flips upwards for faster drying. With a print flannel upper layer to the pad, your child will feel any wetness, helping the training process.

Night training with Big Kids Shorties........

Use of a dry bed sheet I recommended as though these pants hold a decent wee, they do not have a full waterproof outer like a nappy and wetness will wick if the child sleeps through wetting. I used these with my own kids when night training and found them great for giving the child time to wake up and get to the toilet, or for reducing cleanup.

Big Kids Training pants use top quality absorbency and waterproofing so these pants can be washed and dried with your normal load. 

More information can be found on the Night Training Tips and Questions page.

Shipping - NZ Customers  ***NZ's Covid situation may affect delivery times

We use Courier Post or Pass the Parcel  for all  orders in NZ. This usually takes 1-4  days for town/urban addresses.

How to measure

We highly recommend you measure your child to ensure the pants will fit well. Children vary LOTS in shape, as do the different types of pants we use. We can custom fit pants given good info!

For Briefs style pants, measure where the elastic sits at

Low Waist - below the belly button at the top of the hips 

Leg - in the crease where the leg meets the body, where briefs leg elastic would sit

Child's age, weight and current trouser or briefs size are helpful too!

Take measurements (in cm) with the tape sitting firmly against the skin. If no tape handy you could use string and a ruler. 

 

For Shorties /shorts style pants measure

Low Waist - below the belly button at the top of the hips 

Rise - Tape goes from mid waistband at the back to mid waistband at the front as in the diagram below.  The pants need to cover the child's bottom when sitting too! Measure this on the child rather than using their pants. 

Let us know your child's age, weight and current trouser or briefs size too!

 

For the Night Pullups and Pocket pullups please let us know:

Childs age, weight , current trouser size plus the following measurements 

Rise - Tape goes from mid waistband at the back to mid waistband at the front as in the diagram. 

Waist - Measure this just below tummy button

Leg - Around leg where briefs elastic sits. 

 

Stuck or Confused?  Just contact us - we are happy to help, though we are not mind readers so will need as much info as you can give us to get the best size for your child.

 

 

 

 

 

Care Instructions

Wash before first use (after trying on to ensure fit is right!) 

 

Use normal precautions when washing the pants for the first time as colours may run. Use a cold wash and separate from light colour garments. After the initial wash pants can be washed with your normal load on cold or warm. Turn inside out to wash. Use of a net wash bag will help prevent fabrics from wearing quickly or catching on rough objects which can damage them (zips/Velcro etc). They will last longer if not sitting wet for hours so after use rinse in cold water, then wash and dry asap.

Our Animal and Construction prints are quality transfers (heat pressed), however they will fade and wear faster with excess heat, soaking and harsh chemicals, just like t shirt transfers. We recommend low heat and natural drying to get the longest life out of them. The pants can be tumble dryed on warm.

Heated towel rails can be useful to help finish drying the pants if necessary (keep transfer furthest away from direct heat).

  • Customer Reviews

  • 'A fantastic product. The nappy pants contain everything and the bed and pjs remain dry. I can’t recommend the product highly enough. We have tried so many products and this one is the first to actually work. Jenny is wonderful to deal with, working with us to customise a solution for our child. Many, many thanks!'
