Every so often I check the search terms that bring people to my site and several times I have had people land here looking for cloth diapers for older children and teenagers. I have to guess that my site comes up since I have a teenage son and a cloth diapered toddler so the two terms together bring you here. I have had this search come up often enough that I decided to put together a list for those of you who are in need of diapers for an older child or teenager.
Please note that I don’t have personal experience with any of these but have compiled a list of some that I’ve found. It would be great to one day see the market open up a bit to cater to those with special needs children, school aged bedwetters and incontinent adults. It’s definitely a hole in the industry but there are some resources available.
Hiney Liney’s Big Kid makes the Experience kit and their Versa cover for older children. They fit kids from about 30 – 60 pounds.
Antsy Pants – for kids over 45 pounds.
Mother-ease makes diapers specifically for bedwetters (though an older child could certainly wear it for daytime) in three sizes. XS (30 – 40 lbs), S (40 – 55 lbs), and M (55 – 65 lbs).
Snap-EZ makes items in children, youth, and adult sizes.
Fuzzibunz‘ size chart states that they have an XL (40-55 lbs) and an XXL (55+ lbs) in their Perfect Size diapers though I haven’t been able to find diapers for sale larger than a size Large. It may be worth looking into, though.
Lynne Sellers Etsy shop - adult sized cloth diaper that is made to your specifications.
bunnie4 Etsy shop – adult sizes made to order. There is special prices for diapers made smaller than 28 inches and larger than 38 inches.
Happy Little Llama Etsy shop – hybrid fitted diapers for kids 20 – 50 pounds.
I will add more to this list as I find them but hopefully this will give you a place to start on your search.
