Finding the best overnight diapers for adults isn’t a very complicated process, as long as you know what to look for. Read through our easy-to-follow overnight diaper guide so that you can choose overnight diapers that work best for you!
An overnight diaper is a diaper with enough absorbency to hold about 1½ to 2½ cups of urine. A healthy bladder can usually hold up to 16 ounces (that’s 2 cups) of urine, and therefore, overnight diapers, which are designed to absorb the full contents of the bladder, are considered an excellent option for anyone who doesn’t have full control over their bladder at night.
What to Look for in An Overnight Diaper for Adults
Aside from comfort and durability, there are several components you need in an overnight diaper. Use the guide to find the best diapers as easy as 1-2-3!
- Firstly, you’ll want to confirm its absorbency level. Some diaper companies advertise their diapers’ exact absorbency capacities – those are the simplest to go with. If you don’t know how absorbent a diaper is, if it’s termed an overnight diaper, it should offer enough protection if you need a regular diaper that lasts through the night, but if you’d prefer to stay safe and not risk uncomfortable situations, you’re better off finding a diaper that you know the absorbency capacity of.
- Once you’ve chosen a diaper that is absorbent enough, you’ll want to make sure the diaper is skin-safe. Choosing a skin-safe diaper will help reduce the risk of the wearer contracting diaper dermatitis, which results in itchiness, peeling, blisters or redness in the area, and can be very uncomfortable. A skin-safe diaper features a top layer which quickly pulls moisture away from the skin and into the core of the diaper, ensuring urine doesn’t sit on the person’s skin.
- So now you’ve found a diaper that seems absorbent enough, and features a moisture wicking top layer (also called acquisition layer). There’s just one more thing to confirm about your diaper: That it fits properly! If the diaper fits well, it’ll hold urine optimally. If it doesn’t, urine may leak through. This, however, can only be ascertained once you’ve tried the diaper out.
