Thread: Affordable night time protection

  1. #1

    Default Affordable night time protection

    So my condition hasn't got any better. Specialist appointment finally on the way after seeing multiple doctors. I had purchased Depends pull on briefs because they were cheap and the closest thing near me without ordering. They completely removed non pullup diapers from my entire area. For those who wear for nighttime protection, I need some advice on picking out a nighttime diaper that won't leak.

    Just needs to hold one heavy nighttime wetting, so I'm trying to get something that doesn't leak, holds a big wetting, and won't cost too much because I need them for every night. I'd hate to buy a premium diaper when I won't need all the extra absorbency.

    Put in incontinence because I'm looking for help with a bedwetting diaper. Don't know if this is the spot or not, but looking for advice from those who need it too.

    I would recomend walgreens brand briefs. They are the best I have found on a budget. I use a stuffer in mine and have yet to have a leak.

    Cloth, absorbant, cheap and you can reuse them. Your in a situation where they would be optimal if your being truthful.

    Sadly I am being truthful. It's a huge pain in my life right now. Wake up freezing cold in the morning and have to strip down and do laundry before beginning my daily routine. I hate it. I'll look into cloth, but that's still laundry I have to do every day. Hopefully though, this doesn't last much longer. I'm seeing a specialist. Not sure if this will pay off in the long run. Thank you though.

    I know exactly how you feel, Ive ben through all sorts myself. One point about reuseable cloth diapers is that you have your skin against a wet toweling so you must make sure you wash very frequently and re apply cream to what will be sensitive places before diapering up every night. The normal diapers have a kinda stay dry barrier that (helps) keep you dry after a flood.

    Another thought, Always get a higher rating (absorbancy) diaper than you might think you need, Diapers when rated are fully soaked from front to back, you are only going to flood the front area and not the entire diaper all in one go.

    I've been wearing dry 24/7's recently and have found somewhat to my surprise that wetting while my back caused the front of the diaper to soak, then the back. (so long as you don't flood) My previous experience with bambino was that the back was getting soaked (sometimes past capacity) without getting too much into the front. Due to the difference in wicking I'm fairly sure. (bambino don't really wick at all)

    OP: do you sleep on your front, back, or side?

    one more day to get a case of 24/7 on sale at xp medical, try a case and see how they work for you? They're still somewhat cheap when not on sale, as far as "high capacity" diapers go.

    Ouch.

    I'm trying to go for some higher absorbency for sure, but not too much. I'm down to my bambinos which I'd rather use for enjoyment than this. They hold way more than I need every night. So I'm trying to save on some cost.

    I thought about getting a case but really I hope to have to have everything figured out. I don't want to start planning long term.
