Hey I'm Wendy just joining the group again. My son is 9 and goodnites are too small now so I bought adult size depends, also a store brand. Both last about a hour sometimes less. And then it soaks his clothes. My son does drink a lot of water though. Goodnites lasted longer. Luckily he started to have BM in the toilet this summer so we are getting closer to potty training but not yet. What kind does your child wear? Help!

In our state over age 4 if still in diapers many insurances will pay for them through a medical supply company.  Maybe you could look into that.  They have more absorbent ones for incontinence than are on market.  They also have liners for extra absorbency if you need more.

My son is 3 and also receives the medical supply diapers after receiving ASD diagnosis and the prescription reads 'incontinence' also. But the quality they send us is crap. Ethan won't even wear them. I wonder what's a good brand?...
For now we are using the Goodnites.

That stinks.  My daughter is still small enough for the larger than commercial size pampers, so we haven't hit the others yet.  A friend had them though and said they were ok.  Can they get you the good nights and have them covered?

Maybe, I'd have to check. We've also used the Pampers size 7.

My lo with inconvenience issues is only 7, but we use pantyliners for incontinence during the day and goodnights at night.

Is the over night pad like a panty liner type thing?
