GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Real Underwear! #WalmartTRUFIT #IC #ad

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.


GoodNites* TRU-FIT* knows that some things take a little time to grow into.

I have four kids. Three of them took to the potty with ease, and one did not. My youngest is the one who did not. He used his potty chair as a resource for climbing; he used it for stuffed animal parties, and he once even used it for cheese puff storage. No need to 'ew' and gross out, the potty chair was more like a bowl than a potty...having never actually been used as a potty at that point (and no I did not let him eat the cheese puffs).  We tried story time, imagination time, having his favorite stuffed animal 'go potty,' etc. Nothing worked. So, we switched to a potty that rested on the big bowl. That didn't work either: little man was scared he was going to get flushed. I laugh while typing, but that's a true story.

Everyone was worried, his dad and I were not. We knew he'd get it all down pat, when he was ready. And he did...but it took awhile. Even when he was about to start Kindergarten a couple of years ago, he still had accidents sometimes at night. That meant when he was invited to his grandma's to sleep over with his cousin... he didn't want to go. He was embarrassed. When I asked later if he wanted his friend from down the road to sleep over, he was temporarily excited and then declined. Again, he was embarrassed.

Despite our reassurances that it was okay that he was still having an accident once in awhile at night, he didn't want to take that chance in front of anyone but his immediate family. That's when family and friends with good intentions kicked their advice into high gear, trying to tell us how we should 'train' him out of his 'problem.' I thanked them and then did what we knew was best. Turns out my instincts were spot-on.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* look and feel like real underwear.
Inside is a hidden panel for the disposable absorbent pad.

Research shows that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 (in the United States) suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bed-wetting. Research has also shown that 43% of parents incorrectly believe a child can be 'trained out of it.' Believe me, I understand that temptation to think it's easy to 'train' a child to go to the bathroom. As I mentioned above, my first three children took to the potty with super speed/ease, so I assumed it would be the same with our youngest. It wasn't, and that's perfectly okay.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics though, children who are going through the bed-wetting experience psychologically, like my son in the examples above, do not want to participate in fun activities such as sleepovers, because of their fear and embarrassment.


I am happy to report that my son has been 100% potty trained for a good long while now, but like I said, it was a challenge. I wish at the time, that I would have known about GoodNites* TRU-FIT* underwear. With 41% of parents (surveyed) feeling frustration with bedwetting, I know there other moms and dads out there who will want to know about this product too. Available at Walmart and select national retailers, these little beauties are designed to protect your child and help them with their self-assurance. With 51% of parents wishing for a better way to protect their child, this product truly fits a need.

What are GoodNites* TRU-FIT* underwear? They are machine-washable real underwear with disposable absorbent inserts (disposable inserts should be discarded after each night's use) designed to help keep pajamas and sheets dry at night. They are a great choice for parents not only because of their superior quality, but also because they look exactly like underwear that every other little boy or girl are wearing, which will give the children (and the parents in certain situations!) peace of mind. 87% of the moms surveyed who have used this product for their child, noted that the GoodNites* TRU-FIT* underwear made their child feel more confident. 87% is a big deal.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* underwear come in sizes S/M and L/XL, with fun patterns and colors in each size. They are available for both girls and boys.

Oh wow, these GoodNotes are going to help so many kids be more confident. Plus, they will save a lot of bed changing.

Michael D'Agostino said...

That sounds really useful! Parents do tend to worry a lot more than necessary these days:P

Mama Banana said...

Awesome! I used good nites on my now 4 year old before we discovered cloth diapers, these would have been great! My two year old wears hybrid fitteds now and I wish I had those for him too! Awesome video!

Maria said...

My could have definitely benefited from this a few years ago. I'm glad they are making better products for our children.

Joyce Lansky said...

I take it your child did not know what he was modeling for this time. Tee hee. Also, it looks like you have an infectious poster above.

Sandy Cain said...

Great idea! I know boys seem to have more of a problem with this than girls. It's good that this can give the child some confidence, so that he;s not afraid to go to sleep and have an accident!

Melissa Pezza said...

I used pullups to help potty train my second child, and they were AWESOME! They're a great way to make it an easier experience for moms and kids.

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds like a great way to help kids out indeed. lol to getting flushed down the loo. I suppose if it were an outhouse the idea wouldn't be strange, could fall in there haha

Abelle | The Wows! And Oops! Of Life said...

We have the same situation. Jeff was trained easily (no more diapers at 2), while Rwan still has to wear diapers and she's 4. Sometimes she would say she has to poop and it's too late! She already did with her undies on (no diapers during daytime). Haaayy! ;o)

Scott said...

We fortunately didn't need anything like this, but I do know a family that does. Will share your information with them!

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Perfect for leaving a kid confident is sure a win

Sandee said...

I wish these had been around back in the day. I sure do.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Mama to 5 said...

These sound great! I need these for my son because he has accidents at night time

CourtneyLynne said...

Omg I'm loving how cute thee look!!! Kiddos are lucky these days with all the cool and nice looking products out there.... When I was little everything was so plain and borning!

Masshole Mommy said...

I always used Goodnites when my boys were younger. They worked very well and never leaked!

Frugal and Fun Mom said...

I am going to look into these for my youngest. We have been on the potty training journey and this will definitely help with the nights.

valmg @ Mom Knows It All said...

There was a period of time when we used GoodNites. We actually used them during the day when my son was having issues. Fortunately that's all behind us now.

Daisy B said...

GoodNites are such a life saver. As a mom, I am so grateful that my little one is able to feel confidence wearing these at night.

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

We are going to be using these soon! I love that these products are available!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I, too, am happy that potty training is a thing of the past!

I am Harriet said...

They did not have those sizes when my kids were small. I am glad they have updated them.

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

These would be perfect for that kid that wants to feel like a big kid! Amber N

Audrey said...

Our daughter did great from day one with potty training. Our son is 2 and still has some occasional accidents at night. We have used pull ups but he does not like to put them on. We will be giving these a try!

Kim Croisant said...

OH I just read all about bedwetting and I have to say I was so wrong about it. It's great that GoodNites cares about our children.

indah nuria Savitri said...

I haven't tried it but looks like a great products..my kids are big enough now..

Michele D said...

My kids used these. They really did help my son with inbetween training at night. Loved using them.

Cascia Talbert said...

None of my kids had trouble wetting the bed. But if they did I'm sure I'd use Good Nights.

Chubskulit Rose said...

I didn't have a hard time potty training my kids but this could have been great to have then. This is great for those who are potty training their kids.

Ann B said...

These would have been great when my son was younger. He had a hard time at night until he was six.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Allison was 4 1/2 before she was fully night trained. These would have been handy. I washed a LOT of sheets back then!

Beth Williams said...

These sound great for kids who are of that age. Interesting product!

Stephanie Manning said...

I love that they look like 'real' underwear. Especially these days when some kids can be so mean! I will check these out for my 4 year old little girl. She's potty trained but we still use disposable training pants at night in case she has an accident. Thanks for sharing! :)

Krystal Butherus said...

I think it is SO cool that they look and feel like real underwear! That will be helpful for my when my son is this age.

Jennifer Juro said...

My son still has issues at night with staying dry. I am going to have to look for these they would be great for him.

Lois Alter Mark said...

This is a fantastic idea which will make kids feel so much more confident.

Jenny said...

My 6 year old niece could use something like this. Shes been peeing the bed often because I think they give her too much to drink. So this should help with clean up.

Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes said...

This sounds like such a good product for children who are need them.

Russ R. said...

This is quite an innovative product which I'm sure a lot of parents will find convenient and useful. Bed-wetting is such a huge concern here as well. I will recommend GoodNites to cousins with really young children.

Elizabeth O. said...

My sister uses Tru Fit for my nephew! He’s sleeping well because of this underwear!

Katherine Bartlett said...

My daughter has these and I love them. They are very helpful

Bonnie Gowen said...

I've seen these before and seem like a really great product. They are definately better then pull-ups.

Amby Felix said...

These must be a great product. I remember my little ones using Pull-ups and them helping.

Ai Sakura said...

Oh such a useful product! Certainly gives a peace of mind to the parents during the early training days... bed clean-up in the middle of the night is such a dreadful thing!

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

debdenny said...

I like that they are like underwear. So nice in case something happens.

Kristi Maloney said...

That is so funny that your son used his potty for anything but the intended use! My son was the same....used it for stuffed animals, and yes he did dump some goldfish in their too. (The food type.) :)

Dogvills said...

I did not know that SO many kids had this problem. I like that are like underwear so kids won't ashamed.

Maureen Campaiola said...

Looks like a great product. Kids certainly can be funny about the toilet!

Amanda McMahon said...

We actually need something like this - I'd prefer washable for sure, but we are heading to my grandmother's and we don't want an accident on her bed!

Maddi'sMommy said...

It's awesome that they're like real underwear. I'm sure that's awesome for a kids confidence.

Courtney said...

No worries momma! Your instincts were right on. I know a handful of people who struggled with bedwetting who all turned out to be healthy, successful adults! Every little one deserves to have sleepovers with confidence!

Maria Long said...

we are no longer in this stage of life but I wish they had these lighter products for my kids

Laura Funk said...

Oh I really wanted to do this campaign! However, I decided to let my son take the lead and we too have seen great success with Good Nites! Good review for sure

RANE said...

These seem like a modern version of Pull -Ups. They can be washed. Most kids will go on their own time

Angela said...

It's so nice to have undies that kids and moms can both feel comfortable and confident about.

Christina said...

So great that they have made advances in products like the GoodNites. It's important that they feel confident and loved through this stage!

Mama to 5 said...

I bet my son would be receptive to these. He wets the bet at night.

Katie @ Pick Any Two said...

What an awesome product! We're just about to begin potty training with my toddler, so I will definitely be picking some of these up.

Laurie Floyd - Steals and Deals for Kids said...

Best product ever invented! Not only is it a lifesaver for parents but for kids, too!!

Shauna Torres said...

I had no clue they are machine-washable and could be reused... Very cool. Thanks for sharing

JackieJacks said...

I was a bed wetter until my early teens. It was emotionally traumatic and honestly affected my childhood in many ways. I never went to a sleepover because I would need to bring plastic sheets for my sleeping bag. The pull-ups were like diapers and everyone could see! This is the best thing to happen for children with incontinence issues!!

Wendy said...

Wow, those are pretty cool looking! My son learned how to potty really easily, and we're just getting ready to start teaching my daughter. I have my fingers crossed that we have an easy time again!

Liz Mays said...

I'm so glad they've come up with that design. It definitely takes some of the embarrassment out of it. Kids will get there when their little bodies are ready!

Saidah Washington said...

I like the new Tru-Fit. They look more like real undies making kids less uncomfortable.

ajcingram said...

This is great news I had no idea that these were so versatile.

Dawn McAlexander said...

Glad to see that there is a true potty training aid that feels like real underwear. It's been needed for a long time :)

Stacey- Travel Blogger said...

For parents with kids who have trouble with bed wetting, these must be great. Thanks for sharing!

Felissa @ Two Little Cavaliers said...

I am sure that the fact that they look and feel like real underwear is a big help in potty training. Thank you!

DeDa Studios said...

I think it is great they they are like real underwear. I think that is so important.

C (Kid Things) said...

It's a problem that a lot of kids have and they shouldn't be embarrassed. For that reason, I love that those look like real underwear.

Amanda Love said...

I'll probably need this for my toddler so that I can stop buying pullups and I'll be able to save some money.

~ Noelle said...

That is great to know. I had no ide... I though they were like pullups, I had no clue they were like real underwear :)

christy said...

I have never seen this. It would be so great for when my son gets a little older.

Lisa said...

I could have totally used this when my kids were little!

Ashley @Irishred02 said...

We could have used these when the kids were transitioning. They sound great

Kelly @ Texas Type A Mom said...

What a great way to transition!

Colette S said...

Haha we still have the potty being used as a high chair here :)

But what a good way to transition during these years!

Natalie H said...

These would of been awesome to have with my older kids, but it wasn't around, but I will have to keep these in mind with my youngest, I hope it's easier to train than his siblings.

Censie Sawyer said...

My daughter is struggling to potty train. I have a feelign we will be needing these. :(

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

Good to know! We're starting potty training soon...EEEEK!
