Nighttime Diapers.

Jan 19 2011 05:01 PM

How do most feel about Depend for at night? A lot of people complain about the side protection and I feel about the same. My question is why hasn't Depend made a diaper specifically for nighttime use and what do most other people wear at night?

The Depend question is best left to JaneF.

I've tried many brands in search of a dependable nighttime diaper. I found Dry 24/7 to be excellent. I do add a doubler across the front wing to provide extra protection for side sleeping - my most used position. So far, no leaks.

Some folks swear by Abena - and they are very good - I just happen to be locked on Dry 24/7 for now. Of course, there are others that use cloth diapers for sleeping. No doubt they have many benefits - but too much labor involved for me.

Best of luck...

I concur with DeFever 100%. I use the Abena X-Plus (haven't had a chance to try 24/7's yet) and a booster horizontally in the front. The end result, no leaks...and I am a very heavy nighttime wetter.

I used Depend Max Fitted for overnight protection for several months before I began experimenting to find the right sollution for me. These were what I refer to as "the Dark Times" of my incontinence. For those with mild or moderate loss at night, Depend may work. For others like me where loss is heavy/ to very-heavy, they are insufficient.

I started with Depends when I began having nighttime episodes, and found out very fast that they were not enough for me, even with a booster. I switched over to the Tena supers, and with an insert (Cotton) they worked best. I recently changed over to only cloth at night with an insert or two and a coverpant, and it has made all the difference. They wick 1000 X's better then and disposable I tried, even Abena's, Molicare and Tranquility ATN, and I have not had any leak issues at all, and I am mostly a side sleeper, which is the hard to cover area in a diaper. A restful sleep is the result for me, I will never go back! :) Puffy

I started out with Depends and soon realized they were not meant for nighttime use, or those like me that needed better protection during the day. I used Abena for three years and have just switched to Dry 24/7. I have found them cheaper and more absorbent than Abena. I order them through XP Medical online.

I think I am going to start trying the Depends with Tear Off Tabs because they look like they have more protection especially on the sides. Does anyone use those so I could get a review?

I wear the depends diapers at night, the ones with tabs they now call the tear off ones, i use them during the day as well. Infact i think i am one of the few here that use the tear off diapers most of the time. I am a light wetter at night and that does make a difference and i sleep on my side too and i would find that if i wet more at night i would need something diffrent as the side protection is not that great with most disposables. also making sure "it's" pointed down helps too

Well I got some of the tear off ones. I will give those a whirl. I hope they work and don't leak like the pull up ones.

I have been dissapointed with the Depend fitted diaper as they also leak when I sleep on my side, Although the leakage is not as bad as if I were just wearing the pull up. I have just ordered on line the Abena product in hopes of waking up to a dry bed.

Depends are readily available to me and I can buy them discreetly, so I use the max protection briefs with a liner of some sort - when I can find them - and plastic pants and genreally do ok. I can't risk delivery of a box, so I'm kind of stuck, but I find the Depend briefs absorb better for me than for a lot of people.

It helps me at night if I wear a size larger than what would normally fit well. The waterproof sides then overlap and I get fewer leaks. Still runs out the top though, maybe because the diaper fits looser. The cloth-like outer cover ones seem to stretch and get looser when I sleep so they always leak for me. Expensive diapers, like Abena, work well but I don't wet every night and hate spending that much for a diaper and then tossing it away dry. I actually think the problem is that diapers need to be gender-specific like pullups.

Robert109,
That is the exact reason I changed over to cloth diapers at night, if I need them they work suberbly and no leaks AT ALL with a cotton liner/stuffer to add absorbancy, and if I have a dry night, which does occur sometimes, just not often enough for me! , I don't have to worry about a waisted diaper, which I did quite a bit before and tossed out far too many in the last few years to want to add up the value of... It just made more sense using cloth, but having a washer/dryer at home really helps that issue, I would still be using a disposable if I didn't have access to the laundry facilities! Puffy

It's interesting to me that, while so many manufacturers try to create something unique in their product, that a diaper with more side padding isn't made. I guess it's a cost issue, but I bet they'd sell a ton more - especially given all the comments about needing extra nighttime side protection that people post on sites.

Being a lifetime bedwetter at 52-I have tried many products.We are lucky to have the choice of products we have on the market today.I have been using the TENA SUPER with underwear overtop to keeep them in place better plus plastic underwear over them for the side leaks.Us men probly have more side leakage then the ladies due to our design down there.I rarely have leakage onto the bed with this usage.The cotton jockey style underwear absorbs the side leakage for the most part,the plastic underwear keeps it all inside off pajamas and bed.I also wonder why the makers don't have an adult diaper with side absorbing padding,but have to deal with what we have available for us.I would love to have the manufacturers send me new items to try and then report my findings.Having this problem for a lifetime is something those who don't will never understand but that's the way it is......

I get my fiapers from the VA. It takes trisl snf error to get them right but I have found by trial and error, wearing multiples with plastic pantd wotk. Another way I go is wearing cloth diapers with plastic pants. I have been incontinent for many years and have learned to live with it.
