Nighttime Diapers.

by Scotticus | 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?

    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.

    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......

    Hi Woot987,

    We understand how important it is for our loyal Depend fans to have trusted protection, especially in the evening. That is why we have created products such as our Bed Protectors and Protection with Tab: for maximum protection. If you haven’t done so already please give them a chance.

    Additionally, we would also like to recommend our Depend Bed Protectors, which feature a slip-resistant backing that helps them stay in place as well as our thicker† and super absorbent TRI-LOC triple layer protection helps capture leaks and odors.  You can find more information about both products here:

    All the best,

    Lee at Depend

Quick Tips
  • Peel off some pounds

    Keep on with the Kegels

    Do 3-4 sets of these pelvic floor muscle exercises every day, and you can strengthen the muscles that help control urination.

  • Daily dose of water

    Drinking less makes urine more concentrated, and may irritate the lining of the urethra and bladder. Keep your bladder healthy with at least 50-oz of water a day.

  • Discuss with your doc

    Discuss with your doc

    Urine leakage can be caused by many factors, and may be improved or cured with the right diagnosis. Consult your doctor or a specialist to discuss your situation.

  • Log your leaks

    Log your leaks

    By keeping a bathroom journal and recording fluid intake, bathroom trips and leaks – you’ll discover patterns to share with your doctor.

  • Minimize that odor

    Minimize that odor

    While you can’t prevent urine odor, you can curb it by drinking more water, taking urine-deodorizing tablets, like vitamin C; or drinking non-citrus juices.

  • Watch your diet

    Watch your diet

    Caffeine, alcohol, acidic foods, chocolate, artificial sweeteners, carbonated drinks and spices can irritate your bladder. If any of these trigger your leakage, remove them from your diet.
