Diapers for older children (12)?

I am looking for help finding diapers for a very skinny 12 year old. Something that will hold better than a pullup. Are there any groups that can help? thanks

  • Depends, or poise undergarments are made for adults, so they should be ok for your 12 year old.

  • Poise makes underwear in smaller sizes that hold like diapers.

  • Tranquility Brand - they make diapers & disposable briefs just for youths. They are available in a variety of sizes, fit well and are awesome at containing leaks. You could ask your pharmacy to order them for you, or you may be able to get them through a home health supply company (especially if insurance is covering the cost), or you can find them online from various suppliers. Here is a link to one companay and it shows you what the diapers look like:

  • Target sells something called underjams? They look like underpants that are diapers for older kids. Maybe give them a try?

  • Goodnites are my suggestion. My 11 year old daughter and my 14 year old daughter wear them . They fit well and protect great.
