If your child is of school age and has problems with enuresis or incontinence (which is bladder control issues during the daytime) there are absorbent disposable pants that are designed to fit his or her growing body. There are alos bed wetting alarms which can help train a child.
Many of these products can be purchased from your local pharmacy or grocery store. If you are unable to find them there then check into a local or regional medical supply company. It is quite possible that you may be able to purchase the products you need online.
Disposable products such as disposable underwear are those that are able to absorb a large quantity of urine all at once and then can be sufficiently gotten rid of in the garbage. Disposable products come in handy when you are traveling or when your child wants to spend the night with a friend.
Disposable products are very convenient as they can just be removed and thrown away once they become wet, unlike regular underwear that must be washed. This cuts down on the amount of laundry that needs to be done to keep up with a childs bed wetting habits.
However it can also become expensive if you need to buy disposable products on a regular basis. It is important to bear in mind that just like sanitary pads, disposable underwear cannot be flushed down the toilet but instead must be disposed of in a proper garbage receptacle.
Reusable products are just that, underpants that can be used a number of times and like regular underwear, can be washed and then worn again. You can buy your child either one-piece briefs or two piece briefs. The former is geared for “low volume bed wetting” while the latter is best for “high volume nighttime wetting” as it comes complete with a waterproof and absorbent cotton liner built into the underwear.
