Do pull-ups bigger than 5t exist? A roundup of the best for 2022

Do Pull-Ups Bigger than 5t exist? 

Many parents and carers wonder if pull-ups bigger than 5t exist. And the answer, fortunately, is yes.

There are so many reasons why an older toddler or child might need pull-ups, including bedwetting and medical conditions. And there are plenty of options out there on the market in bigger sizes for our little ones, and not-so-little ones!

But with so many to choose from, it can be difficult to know which is best. 

Let’s take a closer look at pull-ups bigger than 5t on the market: their features, what they’re made of, and if they contain any hidden toxins…

What is the biggest size for pull-ups?

Most pull-ups run up to 4T-5T, but some run up to 5T-6T and larger. You can find even bigger, with Bambo Nature offering pants for 4-7 year olds and 8-15 year olds. 

Whatever age and size your little one is, if they need pull-ups, you’re sure to find ‘em. 

Types of pull-ups that are bigger than 5T

Let’s take a look at all pull-ups on the market that offer size 5T and above. 

1. Pampers Easy Ups – 5T-6T

Pampers Easy Ups are one of the OG pull-ups. With 360 stretchy sides, a great fit and superior absorbency, it’s no wonder they’re one of the most popular pull-ups in the US.

They’re made to be soft, they feature dual leak-guard barriers and extra absorb channels, and easy-tear sides.

Their easy-tear sides shouldn’t be confused with the velcro, refastenable sides of Huggies Pull-Ups. Unlike Huggies Pull-Ups, Easy Ups can’t be refastened, although many parents and carers prefer this feature to the velcro of Huggies.

What Pampers Easy Ups are made of 

I like it when brands make their ingredient lists super clear. That’s not to say that they’ve got nothing to hide in terms of toxins and chemicals, but it certainly makes investigations easier. 

Here’s what Pampers lists as Easy Ups ingredients:

Topsheet – Polypropylene
Backsheet – Polypropylene, polyethylene and polymers
The absorbent core – Absorbent fluff pulp and SAP
Colors – non-sensitizing pigments used for the design
Lotion – stearyl alcohol, aloe barbadensis leaf extract and petrolatum
Fragrance – ‘light fragrance added in small amounts’

It’s worrying that they openly admit to using fragrances and lotions. These are completely unnecessary ingredients and can irritate our little ones’ (very) delicate skin.

Pampers tells us that their Easy Ups are free of:

  • Latex
  • Parabens

But they very clearly contain fragrances and lotions. And, strangely, they say that their Easy Ups are hypoallergenic. The problem with this term is that its use isn’t regulated by the FDA. 

Brands are free to use it however they like, with no real ‘rules’ at all. So, regardless of what they say, I’m not sure Pampers Easy Ups are truly hypoallergenic.

Pampers Easy Ups Reviews

It’s hardly surprising that Pampers Easy Ups have glowing reviews. They average 4.7 out of 5 in over 20600 reviews on Amazon. Reviewers love their ease of use and how good they are when supporting with potty training. 

Some reviewers say they’re not quite as good as other brands on the market when it comes to absorbency, and some certainly seem to prefer the velcro, refastenable sides of brands like Huggies.

Pampers Easy Ups Size Guide

Pampers Easy Ups are available in the following sizes:


It’s great that Pampers Easy Ups include size 5T-6T. That size will fit your average 5-6 year old.


Here’s what you can expect to pay per diaper for each size over on Amazon*.

Easy Ups SizeEasy Ups Price (per diaper)
2T-3T33 cents
3T-4T35 cents
4T-5T42 cents
5T-6T51 cents

*Prices were accurate at the time this article was published but may change over time.

It’s no surprise that the bigger sizes are more expensive. The price of Easy Ups is pretty average when you look at the rest of the market.

The Good

  • Good reviews
  • Free of latex and parabens
  • Easy to use
  • Readily available
  • Bigger sizes available

The Bad

  • They contain fragrances and lotions
  • They have no eco credentials
  • Some parents and carers prefer velcro sides

2. Pampers Ninjamas 

Pampers Ninjamas, as the name suggests, were made to tackle bedwetting. They offer overnight leak protection with their superior absorbency, have a 360 degree stretchy waistband that provides an underwear-like fit.

Ninjamas feature odor-control technology and, perhaps most unusually, ‘quietcloth’ material. This promises to minimize noise, for a ‘discreet experience’.

They’re also available in two different designs, made to appeal to both girls and boys.

What Pampers Ninjamas are made of 

Ninjamas offers a breakdown of what’s inside their pull-ups.

Topsheet – Polypropylene nonwoven
Backsheet – Polypropylene
The absorbent core – Fluff pulp and SAP
Colors – Pigments, used for the design
Scent – Fragrance, added underneath the absorbent materials.

Pampers tells us that their Ninjamas are free of:

  • Latex
  • Parabens

To me, that says Ninjamas contain fragrances, lotions and phthalates, like the vast majority of Pampers diapers and pull-ups. We know that fragrances, lotions and phthalates can cause skin irritation and other health issues for our little ones, so it’s such a shame that Pampers continues to use these potentially-harmful chemicals.

Ninjamas Reviews

Ninjamas are rated pretty highly, averaging 4.6 out of 5 in over 4,900 reviews over on Amazon.

Some reviewers say they’re thinner and softer than some similar brands on the market, which is much better for their little one. Many parents and carers say they do the job at keeping their little ones dry overnight.

Some other reviews, though, say their absorbency isn’t as good as other brands on the market, which has led to leaks.

Ninjamas Size Guide

Ninjamas are available in the following sizes:


It’s great that Ninjamas will fit older children. In fact, their large size might fit children up into their early teens.

Ninjamas Price

Here’s what you can expect to pay per diaper for each size over on Amazon.

Ninjamas sizeNinjamas price per pull-up
S/M64 cents
L/XL75 cents

*Prices were accurate at the time this article was published but may change over time.

Ninjamas appear to be slightly more expensive than similar brands on the market. Considering they’re suitable for older children, it’s not a huge surprise that this is the case.

The Good

  • Good reviews
  • Free of latex and parabens
  • Easy to use
  • Suitable for older children
  • Odor control technology
  • They fit like underwear

The Bad

  • They contain fragrances and lotions
  • They have no eco credentials
  • Some reviews say there are issues with leaks

3. Goodnites Bedwetting Underwear

Goodnites are one of the original pull-ups for nighttime. Their extra-large sizes have made them a favorite in households across the country with older children who need support overnight.

They provide a comfortable fit, with their stretchy waist, along with odor control. 

With 5 layers of protection, great absorbency and double leg barriers, they’re sure to keep little ones dry during the night.

What Goodnites are made of 

Goodnites pull-ups are made by Kimberly Clark. On their website, they offer a breakdown of exactly what’s in their pull-ups:

Topsheet and Backsheet – Polypropylene, Polyurethane and Polyethylene
The Absorbent Core – Wood pulp and SAP
Colorants and Printing Inks – used in the design

Goodnites are free of  

Hidden nasties like phthalates, fragrances and lotions can make their way into diapers and pull-ups, so it’s important for a brand to be clear about which of these unnecessary chemicals they avoid.

Unfortunately, Goodnites doesn’t tell us that they’re free of… well, anything. That isn’t the best news for skin.

Goodnites Reviews

Reviews of Goodnites are excellent. They average 4.9 out of 5 in over 5,300 reviews on Amazon, with parents and carers loving how stretchy and comfortable they are on their little ones.

There are very few negative reviews of Goodnites. There are a few reviews that say Goodnites are pricey, which is certainly the case.

Goodnites Size Guide

What sizes are Goodnites available in?

XS (size 3-5)28-43lbs
S/M (size 6-8)43-68lbs
L (size 10-12)68-95lbs

It’s great that Goodnites are available for those up to 140lbs. Their XL size would fit teens and even some adults.

Goodnites Price

Some of the reviews say that Goodnites are pretty expensive. Taking a look at Amazon, just how much will Goodnites set you back?

SizePrice per Pull-up
XS (size 3-5)66 cents
S/M (size 6-8)66 cents
L (size 10-12)87 cents

*Prices were accurate at the time this article was published but may change over time.

The larger sizes of Goodnites are certainly more expensive than some other brands on the market, but considering they’re suitable up to adulthood, it’s not that surprising. And considering the quality, the price is perhaps justified.

The Good

  • Great reviews
  • Great leak protection
  • Suitable for older teens and adults

The Bad

  • On the more expensive side
  • No eco credentials
  • They probably contain fragrances, lotions and phthalates

4. DYPER briefs 5T-6T

a box of Dyper Briefs

Dyper is one of my all-time favorite diaper brands. And, luckily for parents everywhere, they produce pull-ups too!

Dyper not only produces great-quality products for our little ones, but does it without using harsh chemicals and using lots of plant-based materials. 

Their pull-ups are made with soft bamboo, are OEKO TEX compliant and they’ve even made an effort to use as many sustainable materials in their packaging as possible.

What Dyper Briefs are made of

The list of ingredients in Dyper pull-ups is much easier to understand than other brands on the market, which is a great sign when it comes to our little ones’ skin health. 

Topsheet – 100% Viscose From Bamboo
Backsheet – 100% Viscose From Bamboo
Legcuffs – 100% PE
Inner Film – 100% PLA
The absorbent core – Totally Chlorine free wood pulp and Sumitomo SAP

While Dyper pull-ups aren’t 100% free of plastic, they clearly make an effort to use sustainable, plant-based materials, which is wonderful news for our little ones, and for the planet.

Dyper pull-ups are free of:

  • Latex
  • Perfumes
  • Alcohol
  • Lotions
  • PVC
  • Phthalates
  • TBT

It’s great that they’re free of phthalates, fragrances and lotions, unlike many similar pull-ups on the market!

Dyper Briefs Reviews

Heading over to Amazon, Dyper briefs average 4.3 out of 5 in very few reviews. 

Most reviews say they’re effective and soft on our little ones’ skin. But some reviews say they run pretty small, so it’s probably best to size up.

Dyper Briefs Size Guide


Dyper pull-ups are available up to size 5T-6T. 

Dyper Briefs Price

SizePrice per diaper
2T-3T92 cents

Like Goodnites, Dyper pull-ups are a little more expensive than some other brands on the market. But considering they’re completely free of toxins, and they use super soft bamboo, you really do get what you pay for.

If your budget can stretch to it, they’re more than worth the money – they’re better for your little ones’ skin, and the impact of Dyper pull-ups compared with similar brands like Pampers and Huggies on the environment is far better.

The Good

  • Made with bamboo
  • Super soft and absorbent
  • Free of toxins like fragrances, lotions and phthalates
  • Packaging is made with sustainable materials

The Bad

  • Slightly more expensive than similar brands
  • They run a little small

5. Bambo Nature Night Pants for 4-7 and 8-15 year olds

Bambo Nature offers pull-ups for both girls and boys, in two different sizes – age 4-7 and age 8-15. These discreet, breathable pull-ups are perfect for supporting with bedwetting and are ultra absorbent.

They’re designed to make them look like real underwear

They’re even dermatalogically-tested and certified by Asthma Allergy Nordic, the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the Forest Stewardship Council. This means that Bambo Nature bedwetting underwear is free of harsh chemicals, and uses materials from well-managed and responsible sources.

What Bambo Nature are made of 

You’ll probably know by now that nothing makes me happier than a transparent, easy-to-access ingredients list… apart from a list that doesn’t include fragrances and phthalates, I guess.

Bambo Nature makes their full ingredients list easy to access on their website. This is what you’ll find inside their pull-ups:

Topsheet – Polypropylene fibers
Backsheet – Polyethylene and Polypropylene
The absorbent core – Elemental Chlorine free wood pulp and SAP

Bambo Nature pants are free of:

  • Lotions
  • Fragrances
  • Phthalates
  • Chlorine
  • Optical brighteners
  • PVC
  • Heavy metals
  • Parabens
  • Preservatives

It’s great to see bedwetting underwear that’s both effective and skin-safe. They make a big deal about steering clear of phthalates, which I absolutely love. 

Bambo Nature Reviews

Looking on Amazon, Bambo Nature’s girls’ underwear averages 4.3 out of 5 in over 530 reviews. Most parents and carers love that they’ve found eco-friendly pants that actually work. And it’s great that they’re available in bigger sizes for older children and teens.

Some also say they’ve experienced leaks.

Bambo Nature Size Guide

The girls’ pants are available in the following sizes.

4-7 years33-77lbs
8-15 years77-110lbs

The pants for boys are available in the following sizes.

4-7 years33-77lbs
8-15 years77-110lbs

Bambo Nature Price

You typically pay a little more for toxin-free, eco-conscious diapers and pull-ups like Bambo Nature night pants. 

Heading over to Amazon, here’s what they’ll set you back. 

Girls’ pants

SizePrice per pant
4-7 years92 cents
8-15 years$1.43

Boys’ pants

SizePrice per pant
4-7 years93 cents
8-15 years$1.24

Whilst Bambo Nature night pants are a little more than the average pull-up, the fact that they’re completely free of harsh toxins and chemicals, and use FSC-certified materials, makes them more than worth it. 

The Good

  • Completely free from harsh chemicals, including fragrances and phthalates
  • Made with FSC-certified materials
  • Uses some plant-based materials
  • Dermatalogically tested

The Bad

  • A little more expensive than some other brands

6. Prevail Proven — Youth/Small Adult Pull-Up

While most brands on this list are in the baby market, Prevail certainly isn’t. Made for children and adults, these pants are suitable for a wide range of people who might use them for all sorts of reasons, including bedwetting, incontinence and post-partum protection. 

Their pants feature ‘cool comfort’ – skin-smart fabric with aloe, chamomile and vitamin E. 

While they offer great absorbency, they’re discreet, with breathable air zones to keep the skin cool. 

What Prevail Underwear Are made of 

It’s pretty hard to find a full ingredients list for Prevail underwear. Apart from telling us that their products feature aloe and chamomile, there’s no information about what’s in them at all. At least, not without contacting the company…

Prevail Underwair Are Free of

Prevail doesn’t tell us that their products are free of fragrances, lotions or phthalates. In fact, it doesn’t mention anything that they’re free of. Again, when that’s the case, it’s much safer to assume they’re used.

Prevail Underwair Reviews

Reviews of Prevail underwear are pretty good. The product averages 4.4 out of 5 on Amazon in over 3,400 reviews.

The vast majority say that the products do the job, and they’re not a bad price compared to some similar pants on the market. 

Some say that they’re not as absorbent as they could be, though.

Prevail Underwair Size Guide

Looking just at Prevail’s Youth size, it looks like they’re suitable for those with a 20”-34” waist, or about 85-120lbs in weight. 

The pants are also available in sizes M, L and XL, for older teens and adults.

Prevail Underwair Price

A pack of 88 youth size pants will set you back just under 52 bucks, or 59 cents per pant. That’s pretty cheap compared to similar-sized products from other brands.

The Good

  • Reasonable price
  • Suitable for older children
  • Look and feel like regular underwear

The Bad

  • No ingredients list
  • They probably contain fragrances and other chemicals
  • No eco credentials

7. Curity Youth Pants

Like Prevail, Curity isn’t a baby brand and instead produces pants suitable for medical conditions, bedwetting and incontinence. 

Their Youth Pants look and feel like regular underwear, for a discreet fit. 

They’re super absorbent and feature leg guards for extra leak protection. 

What Curity Youth Pants are made of 

Again, like Prevail, it’s not easy to find an ingredients list for Curtiy pants. It’s really disappointing when brands are evasive about their materials and ingredients.

Curity Youth Pants are Free of 

Prevail doesn’t talk about steering clear of any chemicals like fragrances and lotions, and neither does Curity. This is a huge shame, as it suggests they contain a bunch of toxins that they’d rather not talk about. 

Curity Youth Pants Reviews

Curity Youth Pants average 4.4 out of 5 on Amazon in over 220 reviews. While most parents and carers seem to think they’re absorbent – and some even say they’re better than Goodnites – some reviews say they’re prone to leaks. 

Curity Youth Pants Size Guide


Curity Youth Pants are available for children who weigh between 38 and 125lbs. Looking at age, they should suit children from 4 until they’re a young adult. 

Curity Youth PantsPrice

SizePrice per pant
S/M88 cents 
L/XL99 cents

*Prices were accurate at the time this article was published but may change over time.

Heading over to Amazon, you’ll pay just under 15 bucks for a pack of 17 small/medium pants. That’s about 88 cents per pant.

The price increases for their large/extra-large size – you’ll pay about 99 cents per pant for these.

This price seems to be in-line with similar sizes on the market.

The Good

  • Suitable for young adults
  • Relatively good reviews

The Bad

  • Some say absorbency is an issue
  • No ingredients list
  • No eco credentials
  • No list of toxins/chemicals used
  • Not the cheapest

8. Medline Disposable Youth Underwear

Medline Disposable Youth Underwear is the final pull-up on the list. Like most similar pants on the market, these briefs are designed to feel and look like regular underwear for a discreet fit.

They make the same claims about superior absorbency and comfort and they say that they offer both day and night protection. 

What Medline Disposable Youth Underwear are made of 

Again, it’s frustrating to say that I couldn’t find an ingredients list for Medline underwear. They might not be for babies, but we still deserve to know what we’re putting on our little ones’ skin, no matter what age they are!

Medline Disposable Youth Underwear are free of

Medline doesn’t shout about their products being free of chemicals like fragrances and lotions. Again, this is frustrating when we’re putting them on our children’s skin; we need to know what’s in them!


Reviews for Medline Youth Underwear are pretty good, averaging 4.5 out of 5 in just 30 reviews. The majority of reviews are positive, but some say they’re pretty stiff, so not comfortable for their little (and not so little) ones.

Size Guide


Like Curity youth pants, Medline pants are suitable for children from about 4 or 5 into young adulthood. 


SizePrice per pant
S/M92 cents 

The price of their S/M size pants is pretty similar to other brands on the market – about 92 cents per pant over on Amazon, but their L/XL size seems very expensive. You’ll pay about $1.58 per pant for this size! 

The Good

  • Mainly good reviews

The Bad

  • No ingredients list
  • No transparency when it comes to toxins
  • No eco-credentials
  • The larger size is expensive

Frequently Asked Questions about Pull-ups bigger than 5t

1. Are pull-ups bigger than diapers?

As a rule, pull-ups are available in larger sizes than regular disposable diapers. Pull-ups – whether they feature velcro sides or easy-tear sides are usually made for older babies and toddlers. They’re often favored over diapers with side tabs for older babies because they’re handy for potty training. 

Pull-ups are easy for toddlers to manoeuvre themselves, or easier than side tab diapers, at least! 

You’ll easily find pull-ups on the market that suit babies from about 16 pounds to toddlers of around 50 pounds. Larger sizes are available, of course, like the brands in the list above! 

Toddlers, children, teenagers and young adults might need pull-ups for all kinds of reasons, so it’s great that there’s plenty of choice on the market. 

2. Is there a size 7 in pull-ups?

Although you might not find pull-ups that say ‘size 7’, there are lots of brands that offer pull-up sizes bigger than 5T-6T. 

Size 5T-6T is generally suitable for your average 4-5 year old. But what about after that?

Brands like Bambo Nature come to the rescue with their pull-ups pants, with sizes 4-7 years and 8-15 years. Goodnites also offer larger sizes than 5T-6T. Their S/M size is suitable for children from 43-68lbs, their L size is suitable for 68-95lbs and their XL size is suitable for 95-140lbs.

3. How big are 5T pull-ups?

Every brand will have a different size guide, so it’s important to check your chosen brand to find out what weight suits their 5T size. But if we look at Pampers Easy Ups, one of the most popular pull-up varieties, we’re told that their 5T-6T size is suitable for little ones from 41lbs+. That’s an average 4-5 year old.

Huggies Pull-Ups feature the same size guide, with their 5T-6T size suiting children who weigh 41lbs+. 

4. What is the difference between goodnites and pull-ups?

Goodnites and pull-ups are one in the same. Goodnites is simply a variety of pull-up, like Huggies Pull-Ups and Pampers Easy Ups. One of the biggest differences is that an average pull-up like Easy Ups is available up to 5T-6T. This size would suit an average 4-5 year old.

Goodnites, on the other hand, are produced in sizes that will suit children and young people up to 140lbs, which is great for older children who need support.

5. Do they make pull-ups for 7 year olds?

Yes! There are a few brands on the market with pull-ups in sizes suitable for an average 7 year old, including Bambo Nature, Goodnites, Curity Youth Pants and Medline Disposable Underwear

Bambo Nature is my preferred brand on this list, as they’re free of harmful toxins and take steps to be more environmentally-friendly than your average pull-up or diaper.

6. What age should a child stop wearing pull-ups?

The average toddler begins potty training at around 2-3 years old. Every child is so different and there is no right time – it’s simply a case of waiting until your little one is ready. Pull-ups are super handy for potty training as it’s easy for toddlers to pull them up and down. While you’ll gradually use fewer and fewer pull-ups, many children won’t be fully potty-trained until they’re about 4 years old. 

And that doesn’t always account for nighttimes.

In fact, about 20% of five year olds and about 10% of 7 year olds experience bedwetting, so it’s no wonder Goodnites and similar brands are so popular. Goodnites, Bambo Nature and other pull-up brands offer larger sizes for children and young adults who either experience bedwetting or need support overnight due to other factors and conditions.

If bedwetting is a concern, always contact your pediatrician.

7. Do pull-ups prolong bedwetting?

Whether pull-ups prolong bedwetting is a big debate. On one hand, it’s understandable to want to control the mess and keep our little ones comfortable. Some say, though, that offering pull-ups to older children prolongs bedwetting. 

Of course, you have to do what works for you and your family, and if they’re a means to an end, it shouldn’t be an issue at all. 

Every little one is different, and they certainly don’t develop and achieve milestones at a set time and age. But if bedwetting is a concern, always consult your pediatrician.

Conclusion: What comes after 5T pull-ups?

If you were wondering if pull-ups bigger than 5t exist, you came to the right place. Thanks to the long list of brands above producing pull-ups in larger sizes, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to supporting our little ones overnight. 

Bambo Nature is my top pick of pull-ups with sizes bigger than 5T. They offer pants for 4-7 year olds and pants for 8-15 year olds. Not only are they available for children through to their teen years, but they’re completely free of a bunch of toxins, including fragrances, lotions, phthalates and parabens.

Dyper pull-ups are also impressive in terms of being skin-friendly, but they stop at 5T-6T.

There might be lots of choice on the market when it comes to larger pull-ups, but there should be way more toxin-free, eco-conscious choices. If your budget can stretch to it, Bambo Nature and Dyper pull-ups are by far superior. 

All we need now is for other brands to catch up.
