Choosing the right diaper to control bedwetting with older children, adolescents and adolescents Part 1
One point that I have repeatedly emphasized in my articles is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing incontinence. This article talks about the different brands and types of disposable fabrics and diapers available to control bedwetting and is divided into three parts. There are many different factors involved in choosing an incontinence product. The key factors that play a role in the decision-making process are the following: the type and level of incontinence, whether or not the person prefers to wear disposable or reusable garments, how a particular garment affects the wearer’s skin, ease of use that includes how easy and convenient it is to put on and take off (some people do not walk and need clothes that are better suited to this problem), the price, how comfortable the product is, if problems occur during the day, night or both, and how a particular product fits the user (which in turn influences how comfortable the product is and how effective it is in protecting both the individual and the bed). Although these are important factors to consider when purchasing incontinence products, the two primary criteria to consider are how effective the product is in keeping both the individual and the bed dry and how comfortable the product is.
As I discuss below and have mentioned in other articles, most people wear garments that look like underwear. I have decided to take a different approach with this article. I decided to focus on diapers, specifically pinned cloth diapers covered with plastic panties and disposable taped diapers. The reason for this is twofold. In my reading on this topic, I’ve noticed that the public doesn’t pay much attention to these diaper styles, including parents of bedwetters, pediatricians who write about bedwetting, and other professionals. The second reason to focus on these types of garments is that many people feel that these styles offer superior protection for severe incontinence, such as bed-wetting. I will point out the advantages of these types of products later in this article. As an example, a parent who had a bedwetting child wet the bed a lot and did several pull-ups per night. The father couldn’t afford to spend the money on the number of pull-ups needed and switched to pinned diapers covered with plastic pants. The majority of the public has always had a negative opinion about diapers and I think it is time that we take a more pragmatic approach on this issue and use the type of protection that is most effective in maintaining both the bed and the child (or adult) . dry. If that means wearing diapers (which in many cases are the best option), then diapers should be used.
When shopping for incontinence products, it is important to know the different terminology for incontinence products. For example, the term disposable briefs refers to disposable diapers for older children, adolescents, adolescents, and adults. These garments have the same fit, design, and style as baby diapers: they have ribbons, elastic leg gathers, some have elastic waist bands, and a plastic or fabric outer shell (also known as non-woven fabric). As for the outer cover, there are manufacturers of disposable briefs that offer two models, one with a plastic outer cover and the other with a fabric outer cover. Some manufacturers, in turn, only offer models with a plastic outer cover. It is also important to remember the terms that are used for different types of incontinence. This helps you choose what type of product to buy. In the case of nocturnal enuresis, the clinical term for this form of incontinence is “nocturnal enuresis.” I have also heard people refer to bedwetting as simply “bedwetting.” So if you’re on a website that sells incontinence products and it says that a particular product is suitable for “bedwetting” or “bedwetting,” you know that the product is suitable for bed-wetting.
The most commonly used type of disposable garments to treat bedwetting are “Goodnites”, which are designed for older children, adolescents and adolescents with bedwetting problems, and Huggies “pull-ups”, which are designed for both children who are being trained to go to the bathroom and wet the bed. The reason for introducing these products to the market is that they look and fit like normal underwear, which is supposed to be less stigmatizing for an older child or adolescent. The same type of design is also used in reusable products. While these products do work for some people, most people seem to feel that diapers are the best option for managing severe incontinence, such as bed-wetting. However, due to the stigma surrounding diapers, most older children, teens, and adolescents are reluctant to use them. Most of the public feel that diapers should only be used for babies. I feel like the following quote from “Diapers Get a Bum Wrap” (which is the second chapter of The New Diaper Primer, a very good resource) perfectly sums up current thinking on this topic: “This childish image saves many, if not most , incontinence children and adults without diapers and struggling with leaks, wet beds, etc. We can still cringe upon hearing the often told story of a young man who wets the bed and piles of dirty clothes every day with sheets, blankets, pajamas , not to mention the emotional stress and loss of sleep due to interruptions during the night. But if we were to suggest that it would be much easier for everyone if the child wore diapers to sleep, the answer would be a look of amazement and / or outrage while holding that the young man is too old to wear diapers. Again, that unbreakable stigma! “
Many people buy cloth diapers with pins to control bedwetting and when using these diapers it is necessary to buy waterproof pants to cover the diapers. This brings me to another term that you should be familiar with. Years ago waterproof pants were made of rubber and these were the diaper covers that parents used for their babies, then after the advent of plastic pants (which I think was in the 50’s), rubber pants became they became less popular. Later, rubber pants were completely phased out for the baby market, although there are some companies that make rubber pants for older children and adults. The term “rubber pants” began to be used as a generic term for waterproof pants, particularly vinyl pants (which in turn are better known as plastic pants; vinyl is a type of plastic, so the terms are basically interchangeable). When most people use the term “rubber pants”, they are actually referring to plastic pants. Some people use the same kind of terminology when referring to waterproof sheets; Some people use the term “rubber sheeting” as a generic term for waterproof sheets, although this use seems to be more common when talking about waterproof pants.
Some people who have severe incontinence during the day and night wear both reusable and disposable garments. For example, one individual mentioned wearing disposable diapers during the day and pinned diapers wrapped with plastic briefs at night. Another person with bedwetting problems said they wore pinned diapers and plastic briefs during the cooler times of the year and disposable diapers in hot weather.
Many bedwetters rely on disposable briefs and pin diapers covered with plastic briefs. These garments are especially suitable for cases of severe incontinence, such as wetting the bed. In a situation like this, it’s a good idea to experiment with different products to find the one that works best for you. Right now I’d like to talk a little more about pin diapers. The downside to pinned diapers and plastic pants is that some people find it uncomfortable to wear them in hot weather. That said, not everyone feels this way, plus some cloth diapers (particularly those made from chiffon cloth) are supposed to be very comfortable to wear in hot weather.
