Template:Infobox DryNites (Known as GoodNites in North America) are used as a way of managing bedwetting. DryNites are disposable diapers (marketed as "underpants") manufactured by Kimberly-Clark (makers of Huggies diapers and Depend Briefs,) and are designed for children who experience bedwetting.
They are intended for use for children and teenagers from age four up through fifteen years of age.
As of 2004, DryNites feature both cosmetic and functional gender-specific distinctions. Although the girls' and boys' versions are similar, the padding is slightly different. The girls' version is more absorbent in the middle than the front or back, with the boys' version being more absorbent in the front than in the middle or the back. The boys' version also has extra room in the front for a boy's genitalia.
The latest version of DryNites features a colored exterior waistband. The interior waistband is colored white, and the faux-exterior waistband is colored blue for the boys version, while the interior waistband and faux-exterior waistband are both colored red for the girls version.
Kimberly Clark currently markets 2 types, each available in 3 sizes: Small, for kids aged 2-4 (13-20kg) Medium for kids aged 4-7 (17-30kg) corresponding to a clothing size of 4–8, and Large/X–Large for kids aged 8-15 (27-57+kg) corresponding to a clothing size of 8–14. The large size will comfortably fit a waist size of 32-inch (810 mm). Due to the product's stretchiness, it can also fit a waist as small as 20-inch (510 mm). The L/XL size is equivalent to size 14 underwear.

Early Designs: 1994-2004 Edit
Prior to 2004, Goodnites® Youth Pants were unisex, plain white garments with only a faux tag printed at the back of the pant. The original Goodnites Youth Pants were released in 1994. They were slightly larger, longer, bulkier, and more absorbent than later models. These were plain white, with a faux tag printed at the rear, to help kids know which way to put them on. These originally came in 2 sizes: Medium (45-65lbs) and Large (65-85lbs). In 1999, they introduced a new size, XL (85lbs-125lbs and up).
2000: Big Changes Edit
In 2000, Kimberly Clark redesigned GoodNites by making them slightly larger than their predecessors.
In 2001, Edit
2001 XL didn't exist in the country at the time
a "Cloth-Like Cover" replaced the previous plastic cover, but the overall design of the diapers remained the same.
in 2002, Edit
XL was introduced
In 2003, Edit
the physical size of the GoodNites shrank a bit. Later in that year, the "Trim-Fit" style debuted, leading to a drastic reduction in padding thickness and the overall size of the diapers.
In spring of 2004, Edit
gender-specific GoodNites appeared with customized absorbency zones for boys and girls. Medium GoodNites became Small-Medium and were designed to fit kids 38-70 pounds. Large and Extra Large GoodNites were combined into one size that fit kids 70-125+ pounds.
In 2006, Edit
GoodNites underwent a revamp so that Kimberly-Clark could try to shed what it felt was a perceived image that their products were simply 'diapers for teenagers', so as not to alienate those who considered it to be 'babyish' to still be wearing diapers at an older age.
In 2009, Edit
Kimberly-Clark once again revamped the GoodNites product line. New packaging featuring children's faces was advertised on the GoodNites website and released in April of that year.
In 2010 Edit
Kimberly Clark re-designed the GoodNites brand to look more like non-protective undergarments.
In 2014 Edit
The small drynites (Monsters Inc. and Fairies) were introduced.
