It takes just one consultation with the doctor to know it’s time to use leak proof adult diapers for one's urine leakage issue. Whether someone is looking to buy adult diapers for themselves or any family member, it is understandable to feel overwhelmed or panicky. When you go out there to buy diapers, you’ll have a gamut of options to look through--from overnight to premium ones. It helps to know which will fit best, depending on your adult diaper uses.

So, here are a few ways to help you understand that it is not that hard to select an adult diaper as you might think it is -

  1. Size
    Adult diapers come in different varieties and their unique size charts. It’s important to measure the waist and hip of an individual to find the perfect size. Wearing the wrong size can cause major urine leakage problems for your loved ones. If you buy a small or an extra-large diaper for adults then you will end up having issues with the coverage. We have a wide range of adult diapers available in various sizes, including Small, Medium, Large and XL.

  2. Comfort / Material
    Another thing to consider while choosing an adult diaper is to check the material. Some have a plastic backing which tends to provide more protection. Many people don't like how bulky these diapers feel and hence prefer non-plastic diapers which are commonly known as breathable diapers. These diapers allow more air to circulate hence avoiding rashes but these diapers do not have higher urine leakage resistance. Wondering what are the best overnight diapers for adults? You can simply choose one after analyzing your condition and go with it.

  3. Leakage condition
    For proper adult diaper use, it is very important for you to check the amount of leakage occurrence in a day. Based on that data choose the type of adult diaper which perfectly suits your condition. It is also important for you to notice whether any medicine or food is causing the void in the bladder. If an individual is using multiple adult diapers a day and still facing problems with urine leakage then there is a high chance that the diaper is of the wrong size or not absorbent enough. One of the most important things to check is to see whether they are leak-proof diapers for adults.

  4. Absorbency
    The level of absorbency that one’s diaper needs to have depends on the amount of leakage. It is ideal to buy diapers with quick liquid absorbency and high retention capacity, for those who suffer from severe urinary incontinence. However, for those who suffer from mild incontinence, diapers with medium absorbency are apt. During the night time, one is more likely to release a large quantity of urine, so overnight diapers are recommended as they are highly absorbent. At Friends Adult Diapers, you will find the best adult diapers that offer up to 16 hours of protection and are super-absorbent, to protect your skin from getting moist, which in turn, prevents skin irritation.

  5. Odour Eradication
    Odour eradication is one more significant factor to keep in mind, in order to save the person from embarrassment and to maintain proper hygiene. No one wants to smell bad. So, it is important to look for high-quality diapers that manage incontinence as well as minimize the existence of the bacteria that causes odour. This also decreases the possibility of bacterial skin infections. Our range of Friends Adult Diapers has an odour lock feature and has cloth-like breathable sides that allow proper airflow.

There are varying degrees of adult diapers for light to maximum urine leakage; some can hold up to a single cup of liquid while the others can hold up to 13 cups of liquid.

Just imagine how uneasy it gets when you’re traveling by bus and you need to urinate; but the driver does not want to (or in some cases, cannot) stop the bus. So, the only option you have is to wait.

Adult Diapers How to Use

Here is a step-by-step guide to using adult diapers:

  • Purchase a Friends Adult Diaper (depending on absorbency and size) from our website or from Amazon.  

  • Open the diaper pack and extract a diaper. 

  • Clean the posterior surface of the user. This can be done using our Friends Bed Bath Towels, which are anti-bacterial and aloe vera enhanced for 360 degree skin protection. Users can also use powders or lotions to keep their skin soft and free from rashes. 

  • Now, if you are using tape style diapers, make the person lie down on a flat surface. You can use a Friends Underpad on the surface to reduce any chances of leakage, etc. Slide the diaper under the user, and make them turn to one side. Pull the diaper up, and turn the patient to the other side. Once the diaper is high enough on the user’s waist, fasten the tabs on the side. The diaper will have lines/markings to indicate which is the front side. 

  • Using a Pant Style Diaper is simpler – it is designed just like a brief with two/three blue lines in the front. Slide this on comfortably, and then slide on your pants/etc. 

  • Once the diaper is soiled, fold it onto itself, wrap it in a newspaper and dispose of it. 

Adult diapers are a great way to manage incontinence. There is a strong need to raise awareness about the importance of adult diaper use in India because people shy away from admitting or treating it properly due to embarrassment. With adult diapers, one can not only manage incontinence but also protect themselves from its consequences, like skin infections or rashes. However, there are certain things that one needs to keep in mind while buying adult diapers.

People who suffer from bowel or urinary incontinence are also prone to psychological issues like depression and stress. It is very important to encourage them to be vocal about their incontinence issues and shrug off the embarrassment. If any of your family members or friends suffer from incontinence, make them aware of how effectively adult diapers can tackle this issue, so they can live a better, more relaxed life.
