I love trying anything that will make my life as a parent easier. So when I was looking up a way to transition my daughter out of pull-ups and saw Peejamas I knew I had to order a pair.
We've been using Peejamas for a few weeks now and it's been a complete gamechanger in our potty training journey! In this post, I'll share with you our potty training journey and how we used Peejamas to transition out of pull-ups completely.

Our Potty Training Journey
We started our potty training journey when my daughter, A was a little over 2 ½ years old. She was starting to show signs that she was ready - becoming aware when she had to go potty and showing interest in the potty. It also helped that her friends at daycare were also beginning to potty train.
With a baby on the way, we decided over a long weekend that we would start potty training her. I had listened to the audiobook Oh Crap! Potty Training a few months before (and joined the Facebook group) so we used that method. The first day was rough, but after a few days she got the hang of it and was potty trained completely during the day!
We still used pull-ups for naps and night time as she was still learning. When she turned about 3 ½ daycare began doing naps without the pull-up and it went great! So we decided to completely phase out pull-ups during the day and only use them at night.
It's been a little over a year since we started potty training and A is down to only using a pull-up at night. We've noticed that for the most part she wakes up dry - but she's starting to get comfortable with peeing in her pull-up in the morning. Ugh. It felt like we were almost starting all over again.
So I decided to look online for something that she could transition to and get completely out of the pull-up. I still want something for her in case she wets the bed, but I don't want her to be comfortable peeing in her pull-up. After searching the internet I came across Peejamas.
What Are Peejamas?
Peejamas are reusable overnight training pants that come in cute pajama sets. They look and feel like regular pajamas, but on the inside of the pants is an absorbent liner that can absorb pee (like a cloth diaper). I really love this idea because they make A feel like a big girl - and gets her out of the pull-up - but also it can still absorb any accidents she might have. I ordered a set of black and white star 2 piece Peejamas to try it out.
My first pair of Peejamas arrived super fast! I was excited to get them into the wash to try them out but the first thing I noticed is that Peejamas recommends washing them 5 times to get the maximum absorbency. So unfortunately I had to wait a few days before being able to use them so I could wash them.
After completing all the washes, the Peejamas were finally able to be used! A was really excited to try out these "big kid pajamas". I ordered her a set of 5T and they fit her perfectly! She said they were really comfortable and she loved the designs.
The first night we used the Peejamas, A did pee a little while she slept. But I was really happy that the Peejamas absorbed all the pee and she didn't even notice! One of my biggest concerns was that she'd wake up if she wet the bed but this wasn't the case at all! The Peejamas absorbed everything and she didn't notice.
I'm a huge fan of Peejamas and will be ordering a few more pairs now. We've now been able to completely transition out of pull-ups thanks to these pajamas. I'm going to continue to use Peejamas for a few months until A wakes up completely dry consistently.
If you're in the process of potty training, I highly recommend checking out Peejamas for nighttime. Peejamas also gave me a promo code ALI10 to share for 10% off your order.
Do Peejamas Work?
After our experience, I would say that Peejamas definitely do work. I wouldn't use them in the beginning of potty training because they won't absorb as much as pull-ups do. But when you're ready to do nighttime potty training and transition from pull-ups these work perfectly!

Here are a few things that I love about Peejamas:
Cute designs - they even have Daniel Tiger sets!
Good for the environment
Saves me money by being a complete replacement for pull-ups
The only downside to Peejamas is the initial washing required to get maximum absorbency. I wish that they arrived prewashed or only required 1-2 washes. However, once you get past the initial washing phase they're amazing!
How to Potty Train at Night
For us, we started potty training at night after my daughter was day potty trained. In my potty training research I had learned that it was best to start this process when my toddler had been fully potty trained for 6 months.
So once A was done with pull-ups during the day, we waited a bit and decided to try night training after she began waking up dry. However, the problem we had with pull-ups at night was that when she'd wake up in the morning she developed a habit of peeing in her pull-up instead of going to the bathroom.
We wanted to break this habit early and that's when we introduced Peejamas as a replacement to the overnight pull-up.
She's not completely overnight potty trained, but Peejamas have definitely helped the process. We'll continue to use them until she consistently wakes up dry.
I ordered our pair of Peejamas in the same size my daughter usually wears and they fit true to size. I would definitely recommend ordering your child's regular size.
I've also found that Peejamas don't shrink in the wash at all.
