Use Booster Pads to Manage Incontinence - A Complete Guide

Posted by Rohan on 2023 Nov 8th

Are you or a loved one facing the challenges of incontinence? At InControl Diapers, we understand the importance of finding reliable solutions that restore joy and freedom into your life. In this article, we'll tell you all about Booster Pads, what they are, the two primary types available, their benefits, and why choosing InControl Booster Pads can make a significant difference when dealing with incontinence.

What Are Booster Pads?

Booster Pads are discreet, highly absorbent inserts designed to work alongside your existing briefs or diapers. They offer an extra layer of protection and enhance the absorbency of your incontinence products, providing peace of mind without the bulkiness of traditional alternatives.

What are the types of Booster Pads?

When it comes to Booster Pads, there are mainly two types: disposable and washable.

Disposable Booster Pads

These pads are convenient and hassle-free. They are designed for single use, and once they've absorbed their capacity, you can simply dispose of them.

Washable Booster Pads

Washable booster pads are eco-friendly and cost-effective. They are designed to be reused after washing.

How to Use Booster Pads for Incontinence?

Using Booster Pads is super simple, and we're here to guide you through the process:

Prepare Your Diaper or Incontinence Underwear:

  • If you're using disposable adult diapers or briefs, unfold it and lay it flat.

Position the Booster Pad:

  • For disposable booster pads like our InControl Booster Pads – Unscented, peel off the adhesive strip.
  • Place the booster pad in the centre of the diaper or protective underwear. Make sure it's positioned to cover the area where you need the most protection. If you're using washable booster pads, simply place them in the same manner.

Secure in Place:

  • If your booster pad has adhesive strips, press down gently to secure it in place. Ensure it lies flat to prevent any discomfort.

Put on Your Diaper or Underwear:

  • Put on your adult diaper or underwear as you normally would, making sure it fits comfortably. Ensure that the booster pad stays in position as you put on your incontinence product.

Adjust and Check for Comfort:

  • Ensure that everything feels comfortable and snug. Adjust the booster pad or the diaper as needed for the best fit.

Dispose or Wash as Appropriate:

  • If you're using disposable booster pads, simply remove them and dispose of them once they are soiled.
  • For washable booster pads, remove them and follow the care instructions provided for washing and drying.

Best Booster Pads by InControl

When you choose InControl Booster Pads, you're getting a reliable incontinence solution, along with our commitment to restoring joy and freedom in your life. Here are our best booster pads that’ll help you deal with incontinence better than ever before:

InControl Booster Pads – Unscented

Incontrol Booster Pads - Unscented

These are disposable booster pads. Our unscented high-capacity booster features an adhesive strip to make it more convenient for you. It features a flow-through design, which is great for managing heavy flow and doubling the absorbency of most diaper brands very effectively. It is 22 inches long and 5 inches wide, which makes it fit perfectly inside most brands and sizes of briefs. With a 1300ml capacity, it is a highly absorbent solution if you’re looking for extra protection! These booster pads can be used with plastic pants, wraps, and pocket diapers.

Organic Birdseye Cotton Booster Pads

Organic Birdseye Cotton Booster Pads

These washable booster pads are pretty special. They're made from super strong organic birdseye cotton, and guess what? They've got 10 layers of it! This cotton is known for being tough and really good at soaking up liquids, which is great for you. You can use these pads with waterproof pants or inside a diaper to make them even more absorbent. But, before they work their best, you'll need to wash and dry them three times. It's like breaking in a new pair of shoes – they just get better with a little use!

InControl Contour Washable Boosters – 2

InControl Contour Washable Boosters - 2

These booster pads are big, reversible, and great for day or night. One side is unbleached cotton, the other stays dry. They're made of 10 layers of cotton muslin twill with a dry-to-the-touch layer. Perfect for adding extra absorbency to cloth diapers or pairing with a wrap.

InControl Bamboo Contour Booster Pads – 3

InControl Bamboo Contour Booster Pads - 3

You get three washable booster pads in this pack, and they're all bamboo, no microfiber in the middle like some others. You can use them with any diaper, whether it's for a baby, youth, or adult. They can hold about 2.5 cups of liquid, and bamboo is great because it's less likely to leak when compressed and absorbs faster.

Adult Microfiber Insert/Booster Pads – 4

Adult Microfiber Insert/Booster Pads - 4

For this product, you get a pack of 4 adult diaper inserts. These have 5 layers, making them thick, and can be easily inserted into any pocket diaper for a boosted capacity. We don’t recommend using these booster pads for direct use against the skin. With a capacity of up to 2 cups of liquid, these pads must be machine washed and dried!

No more worries and leaks. Enjoy a new level of comfort and confidence, only with InControl Booster Pads!
