DIY Bed-Wetting Underwear

In my last post we talked about the savings, but in this post we’ll show you how to make these reusable bed-wetting underwear. Never buy Pull-ups again!

These bed-wetting underwear are made of 3 important pieces.

  1. A PUL (Polyurethane laminate) outer cover that is water proof.

Still, if you do not know how to sew it would be cheaper than buying Pull-ups all the time.

I decided to make our own. Boy am I happy that I did! I can’t spend $20 for one pair of training pants or bed-wetting pants. Instead, let’s talk 50¢ – $1 each! Continue reading
