When to upgrade to a more absorbent incontinence product? Easy guide!

Let’s dive into a topic that can make a huge difference in the lives of those dealing with incontinence. Whether you're personally experiencing it or caring for someone who is, finding the right incontinence product is important for comfort and confidence. At InControl Diapers, we've got your back (and your front!) when it comes to helping you make the best choice.

Let's start by breaking down the different options: booster pads, absorbent underwear, and diapers. Each serves a unique purpose, and knowing when to upgrade is key to staying dry and comfortable.

1. Booster Pads - Drips and Leaks:

Booster Pads are like your trusty sidekick when it comes to light incontinence. If you're dealing with those occasional drips or small leaks, booster pads are your go-to choice. They're discreet, comfortable, and perfect for when you can't quite hold it in.

2. Absorbent Underwear - A Step Up:

When you're experiencing light to mid incontinence, it's time to consider absorbent underwear. These gems can handle a bit more than pads – from drips to small wettings. Plus, they're fantastic for light bowel incontinence. Absorbent underwear are available in both disposable and cloth-based styles.

3. Diapers - Heavy Duty Protection:

When it's getting a bit more intense with mid to heavy incontinence, it's time to think about diapers. They're your protectors for small wettings to multiple large wettings. Diapers can even tackle heavy bowel incontinence, but remember, regular changes are essential to protect your skin and keep it healthy.

Try these combinations to manage incontinence:

Booster Pads + Absorbent Underwear

If you’re experiencing light incontinence, i.e. small wettings multiple times through your day, we recommend combining Booster Pads with your Absorbent Underwear. This will ensure that you don’t have to worry about unexpected leaks while going about your day!

Booster Pads + Diapers

If you start noticing a significant increase in the quantity and intensity of incontinence issues in your daily life, it’s best to switch to diapers. However, for extended wear and that extra protection from leaks, we recommend inserting booster pads in your diapers. This way, you can lead your day-to-day life with more confidence and comfort.

Remember, it's all about finding the right balance of comfort, protection, and confidence. Your incontinence needs can change over time, so it's essential to reassess your situation and choose the product that fits you best. We even offer free incontinence trial packs!
