Success after IF

Can I reuse a pullup?

I put Jacob in a pull up for his naps.  I'm still too scared to have him in bed in just underwear.  I would say 4-5 days of the week, he wakes up with a dry pullup.  Can I reuse it?  It seems like a waste of a rather expensive thing to just throw away after one, dry use?  But I don't want to do it if its unsanitary.

Re: Can I reuse a pullup?

  • Elizabeth is usually dry after a weekend nap, so I'll reuse the pull-up that same night. She's dry probably half the time at school after nap, but they have to throw away the pull-up. So I definitely reuse the weekend ones when they're dry (especially since she only has it on 60-90 minutes).

    After 20 months, 3 Clomid cycles and 4 IUI cycles, IVF #1 with ICSI = BFP!

  • I don't know if it is 'unsanitary'.  To me it would be like putting back on the same pair of underwear after only a few hours of wearing.  But there is something about reusing a diaper that just feels weird, you know? 

    Are their options for cloth with inserts so you don't have to worry about it?  I don't know much about what is available but that is what I would seek out. 

  • I used to do it all the time.  We never had any issues.

    I would usually put my DD to bed in them, and if she woke up dry, i would reuse it for the next night.  I didn't do it more than 2 nights in a row, but it just seemed like such a waste to throw it away.

    But maybe i am cheap and unsanitary....LOL:)

    To me its exactly like putting panties back on after not peeing in them but peeing in the toilet.  But I agree, I had some second thoughts about it at first, as it turns out only my Mom uses them.  We do use the cloth option, both Blueberries and Super Skivvies make our favorites.  Very nice, protect clothes and beds, and are washable.

  • I always reused the dry ones ;)
  • Yes, we reuse them. I already feel guilty enough about using disposables overnight, I can't also throw them away "unused". :)
  • If they are dry, i reuse them that night. Hayden wakes up dry most days.

    Me too!!  Those puppies are too expensive to throw away dry.  

    Our IF journey: 1 m/c, 1 IVF with only 3 eggs retrieved yielding Dylan and a lost twin, 1 shocker unmedicated BFP resulting in Jace, 3 more unmedicated pregnancies ending in more losses.
    Total score: 6 pregnancies, 5 losses, 2 amazing blessings that I'm thankful for every single day.
  • totally have re-used them.
