Convenient Aging with the Right Adult Diaper

Growing old comes with a wealth of experience that makes us wiser and more appreciative of the simple things in life. Unfortunately, we undergo certain changes that are influenced by the declining condition of our bodies and we are left to find solutions that will make these changes as tolerable as possible.

Urinary incontinence and overactive bladder are two of the most common and distressing problems for elderly people according to the US NLM. Lack of control over bladder and bowel movements often cause problems for sufferers, their families and friends, and potentially the health professionals who take care of them. These conditions can really affect a person’s quality of life as his or her social activities are limited by fear of accidentally urinating in public.

A good quality, highly absorbent adult diaper can help patients manage their incontinence. Not only can it protect against leakage, but it can also prevent any moisture from soaking into clothing. Most adult diaper varieties come with tape tabs that can be loosened or tightened depending on a wearer’s size. Furthermore the diapers kill the odor of urine so the wearer need not be self-conscious around other people.

With the multitude of adult diaper brands on the market today, choosing the right product might not be as easy as it seems. There are several factors to consider when choosing an adult diaper. One consideration is flexibility in terms of a user’s activity level, absorbency level, size, and a choice between disposable versus reusable. Where possible, price should not be a priority since the comfort of the wearer is paramount. Going for a pricier brand may offer better comfort and coverage to the wearer and thereby reduce long-term expenses.

It is not only elderly patients who may need to wear adult diapers, according to BrightMedical.com. Trauma patients who suffer from spinal injury may use adult diapers if they have no sensation in the lower half of their bodies. Some adolescents have yet to outgrow their bed wetting habits, so they can also use adult diapers to keep their beds dry.

Some post-surgery patients use adult diapers until they regain full control of their pelvic floor muscles. Comatose patients will wear adult diapers to prevent bed wetting, since they are unconscious and cannot control their bladder and bowel movements.

According to ehow, when a diaper has reached its threshold, the wearer must change into a fresh one to keep the skin clean and dry. Before a new diaper is put on, make sure a patient’s perineal area is washed with mild soap and warm water. The wet skin must be patted dry instead of rubbed. There are numerous online suppliers of absorbent products, and their unit prices may be lower than from other sources. Many also give discounts and free shipping if you buy diapers in bulk.

Pampers Wipes Baby Fresh 20ct. and $25 Shaws Gift Card Giveaway #ad

“P&G gave me this product sample, all opinions are that of my own”

As a mother who raised three babies who are now in their elementary school years, I can honestly say that with at least two of my three babies Pampers brand diapers were used and I do believe Pampers wipes as well. In my personal opinion and experience; Pampers worked the best for my children as babies. This is why when asked to team up with Shaws and Pampers to share a giveaway and spread the word about Pampers exciting news as to what they will be adding to their Size 1 & 2 diapers, I said “YES, count me IN”.

Pampers Swaddlers, the #1 choice of hospitals, a trusted favorite of many new moms, is now available in size 3 & 4 at Shaws. Swaddlers 3 and 4 will include both the wetness indicator and absorb-away mesh liner that moms have come to love in the smaller Swaddlers sizes.  In addition, Pampers wants to provide mom visual cues of comfort and protection, therefore we are adding an umbilical notch on Size 1 & 2.

I have to be honest with you, the fact that Pampers is going to add an umbilical notch to their size 1 & 2 diapers makes me a happy mother. I can recall with my first born how nervous I was that the diaper was going to rub on her umbilical cord thus making it fall off too soon. I was that first time worrier Mom for sure. With the news that Pampers is going to be adding an umbilical notch to their small sized diapers I was jumping for joy at the thought of new moms everywhere not having to be concerned the way I was that first time around being the mom to such a little bundle of joy.

Pampers Swaddlers were the most comfortable option for my sons as they enjoyed being little movers. My two sons were born to move along and Pampers Swaddlers simply worked for me as a parent. Again, that is my own personal opinion and experience on Pampers Swaddlers.

Today .. for those who enjoy Pampers and Shaws, I am hosting a giveaway so that you can get a chance to receive the same prize package I received to facilitate this blog post….

Baby Shower Gift Idea – HALO SwaddleChange @HaloSleepSack

Free Product

As part of my week long baby features of awesome products to give to that new baby, new parent or expecting parent I am sharing information about the HALO SwaddleChange, making changing diapers on the changing table easier…

HALO swaddlechange

Information about HALO SwaddleChange

The HALO SwaddleChange swaddles and soothes babies for stress-free diaper changes.  The soft plush cover fits over the entire changing pad like most covers, with the addition of a sewn-in swaddle wrap that helps parents keep baby’s body under control while he’s lying down. Available in colors Cream, Sage, Pink and Blue velboa fabric, the Swaddle Change fits most contoured changing pads (17” x 32” to 17” x 34”). The cover should always be used with the changing pad’s attached safety belt.

Experiences with Baby Olivia

My sister called me to let me know that she was going to try this on her baby girl but she just didn’t think it would be suitable. Olivia is a baby who does not like to be swaddled that much, so sadly this product will be handed over to another recent mom to enjoy.

I personally never used a changing table for my three children because I had this fear of them falling off of the table. I believe that the HALO SwaddleChange would have been a product that made me think again about safely using a changing table in all honesty.
