Diaper leaking: Better brands?

Posted on 05/22/11, 01:31 am
I wear depends maximum protection at night and medium depends during the day. I usually do not have problems with leaks during the day because I know when my diaper has become too full. Trouble is, I have become an extremely heavy wetter at night with urination about 3-4 times. Are there any thicker, more absorbant diapers? What do you wear? I like the thick padding that the depends provide, but they still have started to leak. What other ones might be a good idea to try??

    I usually double them up. I cut slits in the first one and then make sure they are snug. Usually no leaks...but sometimes I'll wear a plastic pant over the top.

    I place a Poise pad, super absorbent, in my disposable, and it works pretty good.

    As an alternative to the poise pad I use (as a doubler) the kind of inco pads sold to use inside net pants and under plastic pants - these do nto have a waterproof backing and are both cheap and very absorbant. These can make a diaper last a lot longer without leaking and in the day can be disposed of easily - making them a good way of coping with long trips becasue they can be removed and leve the main diaper fit for a lot longer.

    Having said that I find that a high capacity diaper copes well at night - sometimes containing nearly 2,000ml without leaking. I use maximun absorbancy Tena slips most of the time.

    This is a regular problem at night. I use Tena Slip Maxi, usually OK on its own. But I have back-up available for times when [for no apparent reason] I wet more heavily. I can put a cloth diaper inside the Tena; and/or another one over the Tena and held by boxer-briefs. I always wear a thin plastic pant directly over the Tena. And top the lot with rubber pants.

    I wear all-in-one diaper pants from Minappy nightnday. They have a sewn in diaper and I add 1 or 2 booster pads to improve absorption depending the situation. I like them very much as they are very soft and leak barely. Whit the additional booster pads they become a bit bulky and thick between the legs but under my pyjama it doesn't really matter. I have uploaded some photos in case you want to have a look.
    You should give them a try.
    All the best

    I used to have the same problem. I have gone back to the old fashioned cloth diaper. I use a thick cloth diaper with a booster inside and of course waterproof (plastic) pants. It feels kinda wierd to start with but once in a routine its great. I still get a little leak sometimes but no where near as much as I did with disposables. Lets me now get a good solid nights sleep.

    I have been using the Molicare Super Plus for several years not and love them. It is very rare for me to wet heavy enough to leak.

    I'm using the Molicare Comfort Super. They're good on absorbtion, however the back plastic section has come loose on a few, and the fluff comes out a little if it's dry, or gel if it's wet. I won't be getting another case of these.
