What Are The Best "depends", Pull-ups With Pads, Etc. For Night Time.

Because my husband has thin legs, these things (even small) are loose at the legs and once they are saturated, the pee runs out the side of them. I have a water-proof mattress pad (not great) and another 20 x 30 pad that is good to protect the mattress. His clothes are soaked and the sheet is also wet so on to the washer. Help.

I used puppy pads too! 2 under draw sheet. It seemed to help. I found the depends didnt work as well. Ended up getting diapers that have tape to do up on sides. Made a heck of a difference!

I use Puppy pee pads on top and under the sheets . Also , Men’s Guards by Solmo from Amazon in pull-ups at bed.

I haven't found anything that really helps overnight. I found that the depends are really not good for my situation. I am now using a brand called abena abri-flex. I find that they work better than most. H still gets up wet because I don't think anything holds enough urine overnight, but they work better than any other I have tried for during the day. I order them from either Amazon or Wal-mart. You might also try a urine shield to slip inside the pull ups to absorb more. I have resigned myself to washing the sheets and incontinence pads daily. If I'm lucky, I don't have to wash the blanket. Just another wonderful thing this disease gives us to deal with.

We have that same situation. I have the waterproof mattress cover, then a waterproof washable pad on top of sheet. But I also use disposal pads on top of the washable one. That usually keeps me from having to change sheets during the night. I understand there are pads you can put inside the pull-up that absorb more liquid. I haven’t tried those yet.

How far along is your husband? When I switched H over to pull ups, I just hid all of his briefs. It sounds like your husband still is able to dress himself. Would he be confused if he would only find pull ups in his drawer when he got up in the morning? It might take a few days, but maybe after a short time he would just accept that is what he wears.
