Huggies®, Pull-Ups® and Goodnites®: Sizes and Stages Explained

Do you need training pants or diapers? What about Goodnites® vs Pull-Ups®? We’ll break it all down so you can find the right product for every stage from baby to potty training to bedwetting.


Here’s how to figure out your child’s ideal product at every stage—for diapering, potty training, and beyond.

Pull-Ups® Potty Training Pants are a line of premium training pants designed to make potty training as easy as it gets. They are a transition product between diapers and underwear, with unique Disney © designs that fade when wet, teaching your Big Kid to stay dry. Refastenable and stretchy sides allow for easy changes and your toddler to independently pull up or pull down themselves.

All Pull-Ups are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and paraben-free with underwear-like fit for a skin-friendly and comfortable garment. Pull-Ups® Learning Designs provide all-around coverage with outstanding protection where your child needs it most.

Pull-Ups® Skin Essentials™ Training Pants offer the same absorbency and protection and are ultra-soft and ultra-breathable to help protect sensitive skin, while Pull-Ups® Night Time allows for long-lasting and breathable overnight protection (up to 12 hours).

Huggies® are a line of premium diapers that are comfortable and one of the best lines of defense you have against leaks and blowouts. They’re also scientifically backed.

Comfort is key to keeping your baby happy. Huggies® are gentle on your baby’s skin and have a variety of features that help maximize comfort, such as pillow soft leg cuffs and soft back-pocketed waistbands, to name a few.

Huggies® puts its diapers through rigorous testing to offer you the best products. Scientifically speaking, Huggies® diapers promote breathability, which allows air to circulate for the most comfortable fit while keeping messes in. Features like a wetness indicator and absorbent core are included in all Huggies® diapers.

Huggies® diapers are dermatologist-tested, so you can feel good about using them on your baby. All Huggies® diapers are fragrance-free, paraben-free, lotion-free, and free of elemental chlorine.

Goodnites® is a line of bedwetting products to help make your nights as a parent easier. It consists of Goodnites® Nighttime Underwear, and  Goodnites® Bed Mats.

Goodnites® Nighttime Underwear is overnight disposable underwear that protects against leaks and absorbs odors. Offering five layers of protection, they’re 40% more absorbent than the leading training pant. Goodnites® Nighttime Underwear is available for children in clothing sizes 3 through 20, for children up to 140 lbs.

Goodnites® Bed Mats offer an extra layer of protection and help you cut down on sheet changes.

All Pull-Ups® products are disposable training pants designed to look and fit more like underwear. They are intended specifically for potty training because they also encourage your child's independence in easily sliding pants up and down. In addition to a potty training product, Pull-Ups® training pants are a symbol to your child that it's time to potty like a Big Kid®. Going back and forth from diapers to training pants can lead to confusion, so consistently putting them in Pull-Ups® will help make their potty training journey fun, fast and easy.

You may have heard that potty training should start at age 2 – this is a huge myth! The fact is that not every child is ready by then. There is a lot of physical and mental development that goes into potty training readiness, and those developmental signs will happen at different times for different children. Check out our When to Start Potty Training resource page to learn more.

Pull-Ups® training pants are carried at a variety of national retailers, though specific types and quantities vary depending on location. Click here to find Pull-Ups® near you.

Pull-Ups® are available in sizes 2T–3T (16-34 lbs), 3T–4T (32-40 lbs), 4T–5T (38-50 lbs) and 5T-6T (46-60 lbs). Pull-Ups® Skin Essentials™ Training Pants come in three sizes:  2T–3T, 3T–4T and 4T–5T. Pull-Ups® Night*Time Training Pants are available in 2T–3T and 3T–4T. 

Congrats! You and your child have successfully done everything you possibly can on this potty training journey. The only thing to do now is trust the skills that your toddler is mastering until their body naturally extends them to nighttime. Overnight dryness is something toddlers grow into over time as their bodies mature. While you wait, try out our Pull-Ups® Night*Time Training Pants, our most absorbent product for up to 12-hour overnight leak protection.
