Thread: How do you handle bedwetting?

  1. #1

    Default How do you handle bedwetting?

    I'm a bedwetter, and I use to wear GoodNites. Sometimes they get overfilled when I drink lots of water. Five weeks ago I've overfilled my diaper, and leaked everywhere. I also took a look into cloth diapers but I'm quite unsure about this. What are your advices?

    That's easy... You shouldn't be waiting to change them have them overfill. Also, reduce your drinking of water.

    Cloth is much easier to add absorbency to. They are going to cost more up front, but in the long run will be more cost effective.

    I wear a high-capacity disposable diaper (Abena M4) to bed. In fact, because of my urge incontinece, I wear them 24/7/365. IMHO Goodnites and other pull-ups are not the best thing to wear at night, not enough capacity reliably to handle the contents of an adult's full bladder. I agree that cloth diapers work well, but washing and drying them is a big nuisance.

    Switch to an adult size diaper (taped all-in-one not a pull-up), or go with cloth and plastic pants. Goodnites are made for people with child-sized bladders.

    Booster pads may help the situation. My experience is use as many as needed so you will not leak.

    I've used 2 cloth diapers with plastic pants most of my life and had very little problems with leaks.
    Function is what counts when you have medical problems.

    I agree with downtide. Switch to a good quality taped diaper and you shouldn't have any problem. I have a free draining bladder and wear a Tena Slip Maxi to bed with no problems. They hold a normal night's wetting but if I've been out for a drink in the evening I sometimes add a booster pad just to make sure. Good nights seem to have a lot of negat I've comments on ADISC so I'd definitely try a premium brand.

    I started bed wetting again at 16 and the best thing for staying dry has been good quality absorbency diapers! Buy Molicare Super Plus diapers or double up on a regular store brand.
