The best overnight diapers will make you more comfortable, provide a sense of security, protect delicate skin, keep bedding dry and keep you from waking up. As with most disposable briefs, overnight briefs are padded with cotton and other materials that attract and absorb urine. The best overnight diapers also have a top liner that draws urine away from skin. Adult overnight diapers are designed to handle higher volumes of fluid and are available in a variety of different absorbencies so that you are sure to find one with enough capacity to match your level of incontinence. Read brand descriptions carefully as the best overnight briefs will detail the maximum number of fluid ounces it can handle.
Another consideration for your choice of adult overnight diapers is wearability—how it feels against your skin. Some overnight diapers might feel more comfortable to you than others; for instance, you may find that the waterproof material on the outside of some styles makes you feel overheated. The ease of changing overnight disposable underwear could be a factor if the adult diaper has to be replaced during the night. Depending on dexterity and mobility, you might prefer pull on styles or a design with a tab closure.
A final consideration is fit — many people contact us about finding more absorbent nighttime incontinence protection — we ask them first to sample products for "fit" — how the nighttime brief or nighttime underwear aligns to their particular body shape. We encourage sampling a variety of our top ten nighttime incontinence products because if there are gaps at the legholes, or openings due to a large belly, no amount of absorbent material in the incontinence product will counter a poor fit. Parentgiving estimates at least 60% of nighttime leaks are due to poorly fitting products.
Among the many styles available, these are some of the most popular:
(All Through the Night) are latex-free disposable adult diapers
that hold over a quart of water for maximum protection. Many users find that they're able to sleep "all through the night" without changing the product and yet without compromising skin safety. Its Peach Mat absorbent core promotes skin dryness, odor control and the right pH to avoid irritation.
Molicare Super Plus
overnight briefs are adult overnight diapers with the ability to handle increased capacity for excellent overnight incontinence protection. Padded panels with stretch polymer maximize comfort and mobility. This adult overnight diaper has a 3-part absorbent core for added dryness and to neutralize odor. Dual tapes make it easy to fasten and, if necessary, refasten, and anti-leak cuffs keep contents in.
Tranquility Premium Overnight
is a latex-free pull up style that holds over a quart of liquid for uninterrupted sleep and maximum protection. Tranquility Premium Overnight Diapers have a soft, breathable fabric and an ample, full-rise waist panel. Tear-away side seams allow for easy removal while the cuff design offers leakage protection.
Unique Wellness Original Briefs
are designed for heavy incontinence with a unique NASA inspired core employing InconTek technology. As in all of our top rated absorbent overnight adult diapers, these briefs have a TON of absorbency material in the core and can absorb up to 2.6 liters of urine. These are tab top briefs that can easily be applied and taken off for those in hospice care.
While reusable overnight briefs do exist, our experts state that for those prone to skin irritation, disposable types are definitively a better option. Keep in mind that to really protect skin, adult overnight diapers should be used in conjunction with a protective skin barrier product and, for cleansing, a no-rinse cleanser or cleansing wipes are better than soap—gentler and more effective.
