Does anyone know where to get larger sized cloth diapers?

My daughter is 5 1/2 and she is completely bowel and bladder incontinent (I'm going to ask you nicely not to bash me about this in any way, please and thanks) and she is diapered. She really prefers cloth diapers because they are more comfortable and look more like underwear if her peers see a bit of one while she's bending over or what not. The only problem is that it's really hard to find larger sizes for a reasonable price - does anyone have a source? I know that sometimes you can get them custom made but I am trying to avoid the steep prices that come with that because I also need to purchase some for my 4 year old son (who has similar problems). Thanks!

  • Sorry I do not know but I thought Maybe you could try contacting companies that sell cloth diapers to see if they offer them in larger sizes.

  • If she is self conscious enough to worry about "peers", then she knows she should be going to the toilet.

  • She is medically incontinent, she had a colostomy for some time but it has been reversed. Toileting is not an option.

  • She is self conscious because her peers bodies work in a way that hers does not. It's a painfully burden for her to carry, I would like to lighten the load by buying her whatever I can to give her some small piece of control and happiness. It's minimal but it's all I can do. She's a tough girl but people assume that's it's a choice that either her or I are making at this point and unfortunately it's not.

  • Have you looked at something like tena pants? To me, those type of products are much closer to regular underwear than any type of diaper.
