Thread: Side sleepers and disposable nappies

  1. #1

    Default Side sleepers and disposable nappies

    I'm sometimes a side sleeper and have occasional leaks because of this problem. But I don't want to make the change to cloth diapers I like the convenience of disposable nappies, any ideas how to stop leaks when I roll over onto my sides?

    what brand of diapers are you using and are you male or female, biologically? (I don't want to assume!) I'm female and have had luck using confidry or northshore surpreme and using short leggings or bike shorts to keep them in place. I'm mostly a stomach sleeper but sometimes a side sleeper too.

    Are you doing the length ways fold before putting your nappy on? For me that took lots of what I thought were poor performers to quite adequate and I am a side sleeping bed wetter.

    Using a baby nappy struck through the backing as a stuffer can help if the above doesn't or even find some doubler pads.

    I'm not sure what you mean by length way fold

    its when you first open the diaper, after you have the diaper open you fould it in half length wise to create a v (do not fold it to the point of breaking up the pading) this creates a path for the pee to flow better so more of the diaper can absorb evenly and quicker

    I had problems with leaks as I'm a side sleeper too. I fixed the issue by using my typical day use dry 24/7 with booster, then running a pinwheel over the plastic backing to create flow through and then using a pull-up cloth diaper (Kins model 10700) with plastic pants. I also use a good washable bed pad with water proof backing(36" x 50"). I use 30 mg of Temazepam along with 2mg of Lorazepam as a sleep aid. I get a great night sleep and wake up refershed, not like when I tried Ambein which left me "hung over" for hours. I sleep so good that it's not unusual for me to wake in the exact same position which means all voiding goes to the same side. And I still don't get leaks. I might get the bed pad damp a few times a year. The diaper combination is rather bulky and took some time getting used to for sleeping. But I haven't had wet sheets in years. Like when any measures we take to have secure protection fails, regardless of situation ( sleep, active or just reading and watching the TV), it just means we come here and ask for advise and experiment until the issue is resolved.

    This is a really interesting solution to the problem. I wonder why though you would not just use all cloth, since your system now requires plastic pants and washing diapers, and cheaper.

    Sounds like you don't wake up when you need to pee? Was it always like this? I think most people wake up, I sure do, even if I dreaming finding a place, then wake up when I am about to void.

    Agree, most people wake when they need to pee. At the same time many (like myself) do not. With cloth diapers no problem, with disposables a different story.
