How big are your bed pads

Have you used a larger bed pad? Normally I would use a 3'X 4' but my partner would complain. She said it wasn't enough to cover it completely. She could feel it.
So I got a 3' X 6'. Now it covers the whole bed. Rarely does my diaper leak on the pad. But sometimes it does. That's why I use it. What size do you use?

The reusable bed pads I normally use are 34" x 36". I also have some that are 36" x 60", but I've found those to be overkill.
 
I’ve never used bed pads. Just a waterproof mattress cover and a really thick night time diaper.

To add to this, the reason I don’t use them is I flip and flop and throw stuff everywhere in my sleep. The pad would probably be on my head in the morning 🤪

I have a 34"x36" reusable that sits atop a waterproof mattress cover. Add a chux pad & it's like Fort Knox.

One time I was surprised though because I had a diaper leak that made it to the pad. The pad was creased by my lying position so it formed a valley that ended in a small waterfall over the side of the bed. Just shows gravity will always find a way despite best efforts

I agree but she said that she could feel it when she's trying to sleep. It just feels like a bump along her side. So I adjusted and now she's cool.
Small things are easy. She doesn't complain all the time. Beside I don't leak every night. I'm sure she'd feel that. Thanks for a quality booster and plastic pants (heavy wetter), rarely do I leak.

I think mine is 34"x36" from Walmart. I've leaked a few times into my PJs and T-shirt, and somewhat on the sheet but rarely into the mat. For me, the mat is for the unexpected disaster, which has not happened yet.

I have a somewhat large pad my wife does not want wet sheets.

My wife solved that problem! We have separate twin beds now. :eek: We are old enough now that it allows us both to sleep better (that was the real reason).

4' x 3'. They work great. Keeps the bed clean and dry. I sleep solo so I don't need it bigger than that. I also have a few pads I use for watching TV.
Just in case. If I have visitors it's easily put it away.

I use a washable 44x52
and also use a waterproof mattress protector
I guess you could call it redundant but if I leak (which is rare) i can just throw the pad in the wash instead of the sheet and mattress protector

I mentioned in another post about my three layers of protection. I have a pad directly on the mattress (couldnt tell you the size but its big), then my water proof mattress protector over that(incontinence grade) a normal bed sheet then a small rearz pad i lay on.

3x5 under the sheets, I rarely leak but when I do the expensive bed is protected. My wife does not get upset if there is laundry.
 
I use disposable 30x36 pads with the 'peachmat' design to catch leaks. Sometimes I can reuse them another night or two.
In the mornings when I leak, I just wrap my diaper inside of them and take it to the trash.
 
29x35 disposable ones that I use a few times if I can.
 
36 x 72 northshore bed pads

This is me to a tee. I just use a mattress cover and like you said, I would end up pulling it off with all my flipping and moving
