Do you have a child who is slow to potty train or a school-aged bedwetter? Maybe you have a special needs teenager or an elderly adult in your life who is incontinent and needs to wear adult diapers. Whatever the reason you’re looking for cloth diapers for older kids, teen cloth diapers, or cloth diapers for adults, you’ve come to the right place. 

If you’re still on the fence about using disposables vs cloth diapers for big kids, all you need to know about cloth diapers can be found here. 

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 kids and teenagers. I have had this search come up often enough that it became clear that enough of you need a resource. Disposable diapers are expensive, and finding cloth diapers in larger sizes can be difficult. Have no fear. I’ve got you covered! 

Cloth Diapers for Older Kids, Teens, and Adults

It would be great to one day see the cloth diaper market open up more to cater to those who need cloth diapers for older toddlers, special needs cloth diapers, cloth pull-ups for bedwetters, or teen cloth diapers. It’s an unfortunate hole in the industry, but there are some products available out there.

I’m encouraged that we will soon see just as many cloth diapers for adults as there are cloth diapers for older kids available in mainstream stores, but there are more available now than there were several years ago. Progress is being made in this market, which is excellent news. 

Please note: I don’t have personal experience with all of these diapers, but I am familiar with or have used several of them. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or send an email to I will do my best to answer your questions or direct you to someone who can help you better than I can.

  4. Regan – thank you for keeping this up-to-date. Although there are a lot more options today than there were 5 years ago when I started cloth diapering my disabled son, this is a great starting point for anyone faced with the need.

    1. Thank you so much for this info and page. It’s still an issue with using diapers for an older child of any age even up to adult for toletting issues. How is it abuse to want to keep your child dry and comfortable and letting them have a good night’s sleep? Medical reports are now saying that a diapered bedwetter sleeps the same as a dry child but one that wets the bed is not resting very well. The only problem is getting a child to relax and realize that diapers work and can be worn by anyone of any age. There are even some reports that from the child’s point of view, they would rather wear diapers than wet the bed and clothes. They are just worried about what it will look like to have them on and what other kids are using for there wetting.

  5. THANK You So VERY Much for this resource! i am trying to find overnight diapering solutions for our “older” child, who like her older sibs, isnt’ dry yet& wets A LOT over night!

  6. We are catholic and every year at christmas eve mass at 11 pm,it is a tradion for a baby or child to be baptized and then the lights are turned down low and Silen night and Away in the Manger is sung while the parents and sponsors sit and hold the newly child.It is a very solemn event!This year at christmas eve mass,our 12 year old niece is going to be the ‘baby’ baptized during the mass.She is going to wear the white,poofy,knee length,short sleeve baptism gown with the matching bonnet,white tights and white matching booties.Her diaper is going to be cloth and pinned on her with diaper pins and she will have cute babyprint rubberpants over it with a tee shirt as her top.She will also have a pacifier on a clip attached to her gown that she will use during her baptism.We are looking forward to her baptism and having her as a ‘baby’ for it!

    1. The nieces christmas eve baptism went very well! We got to the parish three hours early,at 8pm and went to the nursery.The niece took off her clothes and got into a baby crib and was given her pacifier to suck on.We pinned her diaper on,put the rubberpants on over it ,then her tights and tee shirt and bonnet.She got out of the crib and sat on the floor and played with the stuffed animals untill 10:15,then we put her gown and shoes on her and went to check in with the baptism director.The niece looked very cute and babyish in her outfit and it was special seeing her baptized then the lights turned down low and everyone sang! After we got back to their house,the nieces outfit was taken off and a footed pajama was put on her over her diaper and rubberpants and she went to bed to await santa claus!

      1. Our daughter is 13 and in puberty and bedwetting because of it! When she started puberty at age 12,the bedwetting started almost right away and i got her the goodnites to wear.She broke out in rashes from them,so i tried other disposable products and the same thing happened! The last resort was cloth diapers and rubberpants which she has been wearing now for several months.I bought several cloth diapers from a website and adult size rubberpants from another website.I also got the Gerber flat cloth diapers in the 10 pack,24×27 inches and sewed them together to make one diaper out of them. I use the regular baby diaper pins to pin the diaper on her with and her rubberpants are all in pastels and nursery prints,in adult size. They do the job and keep her bed dry and she actually having me put them on her at bedtime!

        1. I’m glad you have found an option that is working for her and doesn’t cause painful rashes.

        2. To Gracie L.Our daughter is 13 and also bedwetting in puberty.I have been using the plain white,pin on cloth diapers and adult size rubberpants on her since the bedwetting started.About a half hour before bed time,i apply babypowder,then pin a dozen or so vloth diapers on her then put the rubberpants on over them.She is fine with the diapers and rubberpants and has told me they make her feel babyish when she has them on.

    2. I think this would be so beautiful to attend and see. Hope you get plenty of pictures of the event for fond memories.

  7. Hello! It seems antsy pants had gone MIA as well. Too bad, I was really looking forward to trying that diaper. But I order one w hole ago and haven’t heard anything. Have made many attempts to contact the company and got no responses. Seems by their Facebook page I’m not the only one either. Too bad. Thanks for making this site!!

    1. Thank you for letting me know. That’s terrible that they have taken orders and not responded to people. This post hasn’t been updated in a while so I’ll have to go through it and see what should be removed and find new resources to add.

  8. Tags and Rags makes custom sizes from xxs infant to XXL adult. I’ve been on a long break and do custom made to order jobs only right now. Feel free to message on my Etsy.

  9. Just switched 2 bedwetters 7 & 5 to Imagine XL pockets. very happy with them fit is good and overnight protection is great.

  10. We finially baptized our 15 year old daughter at Easter vigil last easter and found a cute,white,sleeveless,top of the knees,flowergirl dress in her size at a bridal shop and a flower head wreath with ribbons down the back.With the dress,we did white tights and white mary jane shoes and then did a size 8 pampers cruiser diaper with white rubberpants over on her under the tights and a white camisole as her top.She looked very cute and gorgeous in her outfit! All of the preteen and teen girls baptized wore similiar white outfits and several girls had a cloth diaper and rubberpants under their tights.

  11. To Lori-Our daughter is 12 and we adopted her 4 months ago and started her off right away in cloth pin on diapers and rubberpants 24/7.Since she is still some what of a littl girl yet,we got her rubberpants with babyprints on them that she likes.On august 20th,we finially baptized and christened her as an infant in the Infant Baptism Program at our parish.We did her in an cute white,poofy,short sleeve,top of the knees,baby girl style dress with a matching bonnet,lace anklets and matching booties[all made for her].We did new cloth diapers on her with a pair of her baby print rubberpants over them under her dress with a camisole as her top.She had a pacifier around her neck and was sucking on it when she was being baptized.Every one who saw her at her party thought she looked very cute and infant like and told me the babyprint rubberpants over her diapers looked very cute and babyish.

  12. To Julie K.-We have a new adopted 15 year old daughter from Ireland that we have had for three months now and we started her off right away in the cloth pin on diapers and rubberpants 24/7 due to her wetting accidents both day and night.We use the Gerber flat cloth diapers on her in the 24×27 inch size and pin them on her with regular diaper pins.Her rubberpants are adult size and in both pastel colors and baby prints and fit blousy over the diapers for comfort.Three weeks ago we baptized and christened her during mass at our parish and dressed her in a pretty,white,short sleeve,top of the knees baptism/christening dress with a matching bonnet,lace anklets and white mary jane shoes and put new cloth diapers on her with a pair of her babyprint rubberpants over them under the dress with a white tee shirt as her top.She looked very cute and innocent in the outfit! She will be making her First Holy Communion next May 2018 with the 7 and 8 year olds and will wear the communion dress and veil with her baptism lace anklets and the mary jane shoes and will wear her baptism cloth diapers and the babyprint rubberpants and tee shirt under the dress.

  13. So far, I haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for. If happy heinys will get back to me, I’m hoping they still do some custom orders. Motherease said they don’t make anything in the size I needn’t for my eldest. My ten year old boy still wets, and even with goodnights (and sometimes changing them halfway through the night), he is still waking up wet. He’s 82 pounds. I’m looking for a bummis whisper wrap style cover with a pocket to stuff, that does not wick moisture to the outside, or let it leak at the legs if there is a gap between the egde of the soaker and the edge of the cover.

  14. I have use Comfit 24/7 and they are the best disposable but are expensive and I d like to get the cloth but cant find my size, I’m 70 and incontinent.

    1. Hi Rob. Another Rob here. You might consider SnapEZ’s. Well made PUL pocket diapers. Two designs. A high waist model that l use at night and a lower rise for day wear. I use a large disposal booster between the fleece lining and me me due to my IBS leaks and flannel and Zorb or bamboo stuffers in the pocket. A very comfortable diaper. Fun colors as well. I cover the night diaper with an over size plastic pant from Babykins for insurance. Babykins is another source of quality cloth diapers. Pullon or contour with velcro closures.
      I’d recommend calling each to talk to them about sizing and other details.
      Stephanie at SnapEZ. Jenny at Babykins.

      Good luck

      1. I wore cloth diapers until I was four. Then I wore diapers again at age six until I was eight. Then when I was twelve I wore diapers until I was forteen. I was born premature at six months and weighed 2.5 pounds. When I was six I had Encephalitis and when twelve I had Polio. I am now 73 and wear diapers all the time.

  15. Just wanted to say.

    I have child here. A girl who’s 10 year old. She suffers from incontinence. We use now disposable diapers for older childeren, but we are not very happy with it. I search for hours. I’m from Belgium, Europe. I couldn’t find it anywhere. We also didn’t want to use plastic pants, because it’s so uncomfortable. But then, after hours, I find this site! I was so happy with it. We have ordered a few for her now! So, thanks a lot! If they are ok, we can order more! Thanks again!

  16. I think it’s great they make cloth diaper options for those who need them for bigger kids instead of having to resort to the disposables!

  17. I too found your site through that search. Thank you for putting this list together! That was extremely thoughtful of you!

  18. our daughter is 15 and a bedwetter and we just use the gerber flat cloth diapers on her with adult size rubberpants over them.The diapers are plain white,but she wears pastel and babyprint rubberpants as they are more girly for her.they work for her.

    1. Our 14 year old daughter just made her First Holy Communion this past may 22nd and per the parish dress code,all the girls had to wear the poofy,knee length communion dress and veil with the lace anklets and the white patent leather shoes.The required First Communion diaper had to be cloth and pinned on the girls with diaper pins and they had to have loose fitting rubberpants over the diaper with a white undershirt as their top.I made the daughters diaper by sewing one package of the Gerber flat cloth diapers together to make one 10 ply thick diaper out of it and pinned it on her with the required diaper pins.I got her white rubberpants from in adult size and they fit her blousy over the diaper.Several of the little girls had loose fitting toddler rubberpants on over their diaper.

      1. To Clarice A-Our daughter is 14 also and made her First Communion last may and had to wear the same out fit as you daughter only just the rubberpants and an under shirt had to be worn under the dress.I got her rubberpants from in the white,as they sell them for teens and adults as well.A couple days before her ceremony,i dusted the rubberpants with babypowder inside and out to help keep them soft.I also sprinkled babypowder on her before she put the rubberpants on.There were two other teen girls-both 15-in her class and they both had the rubberpants from under their dresses.The majority of the little girls all had toddler size rubberpants under their dresses.The daughter looked adorable in her communion oufit and i was happy that the parish required the rubberpants under the communion dresses!

      2. Our parish also has the full requirement for the girls First Holy Communion-the poofy,short sleeve,knee length communion dress and veil,white tights,twhite tee shirt,cloth diaper,rubberpants and the white patent leather shoes.Our daughter was 16 when she finially made her First Holy Communion and didnt want to wear the tee shirt,cloth diaper and rubberpants! She told the Religious Ed.Director that she felt she was to old to have to wear them and was quite upset!The Director told her that the dress code applies to all girls making their First Communions and that she couldnt make hers if she didnt wear the full outfit! She wasnt too happy,but gave in and sai she would wear the tee shirt diaper and rubberpants.I made her diaper by sewing 10 cloth diapers the 24×27 inch size and got white adult size rubberpants.I got her white tee shirt at Target.After i got her all dressed in the outfit,she looked gorgeous,but told me she felt weird with the diaper and rubberpants on under her tights! I was happy to have her in the required outfit even tho she wasnt overly happy about it.

    2. To Julie K.-In your post you said your 15 year old daughter wears babyprint and pastel colored rubberpants over her diapers.Does she like the babyprint rubberpants? Our daughter is 16 and a bedwetter and started off in the plain white cloth diapers with pastel rubberpants over them.She got bored with the white cloth diapers,so her and i got on the web here and found some cute babyprint diaper material and ordered several several different baby prints.I made her two cloth diapers out of each set of the babyprints and now she has cute babyprint cloth diapers that she likes to wear under her rubberpants.We also found some babyprint material at JoANN fabrics that were nade into her diapers also.

    1. I just got 4 of these in the mail yesterday. While they do fit my 5 year old (about 45 pounds), I don’t see them fitting her when she’s 70 pounds or heavier. I’m about 4 snaps in on each side and I don’t really even need to adjust the rise. I could snap it down once. If I snap it down two snaps, then it seems a bit too short as her little booty ends just where the diaper would end. I only tried one on her though, as they haven’t been washed yet so I can’t say anything on performance. And I also didn’t leave it on very long. I may be able to snap it on the second snap on the rise if I wiggle the diaper around a bit. The inserts are very long and you can snap them to make them shorter. They have two snap downs so you can make three sizes total if you leave it unsnapped. For the price, I cannot complain! I know they will last much longer due to their size than most of the other diapers I found that cost upwards of $40+ per diaper. Oh! And the crotch area is also very wide! Maybe 1.5-2 times as wide as an average one size cloth diaper. If she stays a skinny little string bean, then we JUST might make it to 60 or 70 pounds. I still think that’s pushing it, though. So if your kiddo is pushing that weight and is wider in the middle, then I would suggest only ordering 1 to see if the fit would be right. 🙂

      1. Thank you for your input, Heather. It’s very helpful to other parents who are looking at any of these options as I haven’t used any of these other than the RagaBabe Size 3, I am unable to give any input on sizing.

      2. My son is 5 and weighs 40 pounds. Which site and brand did you actually buy? I’m desperately looking to order.

        1. Hi Alicia, this post isn’t really based on my own experience. I kept getting hits to my site looking for cloth diapers for older kids and teens due to having a cloth diapered baby and a teenager. I then decided to research options to help the people who landed on my site.

          My son didn’t potty train until he was 4 and was almost 40 pounds. At that time I was using Thirsties covers and Wonderful Bambino fitteds mostly with a few larger diapers like Ragababe size 3.

  19. Can an individual buy the Hiney Lineys? I went to the website and had no option of adding items to the cart. So I registered and still cannot order. It looks as though they only sell to stores? I was going to get the FuzziBunz but that was also a no-go as her site is down due to family medical issues. I love this page though! I’ve been having a difficult time finding something for my disabled 5 year old daughter.

    1. Hi Heather. Fuzzibunz no longer sells the Perfect Size diaper so I will have change the link for that. They do now have a two size system with the bigger size going up to 40 pounds. As far as Hiney Lineys, I haven’t heard anything about them but just asked about them in a group and it is unclear whether they are still around or not. Their site is strange. It looks like you can order, but then there isn’t anywhere to add a product to your cart. I will have to investigate this a little further. Thanks for the heads up.

  20. You might want to update the info here, I tried to order Snap-Ez and nothing was going through. I don’t know if they are still doing business. I looked at their Facebook page and they aren’t answering anyone there or posting there the last few months. I so needed to get stuff from them. I have to look for it used now.

    1. Thank you for letting me know. I will check it out and see if anyone has heard if they are now out of business. The only way I know of things like this is if someone tells me, so thank you. 🙂

    2. Melissa, a blogger friend of mine just shared with me that the owner’s grandson was born still. They received a diagnosis that was not compatible with life so she was comforting her daughter for the past few months before he was born and she is still mourning. I do not believe the store has closed down since the site is still up, but it does appear that she is on hiatus for now.

      1. Thank you, I am sorry for their loss 🙁 If you find out if they are selling please reply again. I really like their stuff able undies and I need them badly however I know that family is way more important then that. Also the website wasn’t working right for me so I’m not sure if I can or should try to order? Thanks for letting me know!

  21. Hi Regan,

    I wanted to add my two cents regarding cloth diapers which I think will help your readers. I just turned 47 this past June and suffered from bedwetting as a child and have frequent nighttime accidents as an adult. I’ve found that adult size pin-on style cloth diapers covered with a pair of adult size plastic pants (also called “rubber pants” by many people even though this is a misnomer) do an excellent job of keeping the bed dry. I realize that many parents may recoil at the thought of using safety pins, but they really are easy to use and there are a lot of advantages of using diapers with safety pins, such as the fact that you have a great deal of flexibility as far as fitting and layering the diapers. I’m sure there are still plenty of parents who prefer this method of diapering and might be searching for pin-on style cloth diapers and plastic pants for their older child or teenager that wets the bed, and that’s why I wanted to pass this information along.

    I wear the “Leakmaster” adult size nighttime prefold gauze cloth diapers covered with a pair of adult size “Leakmaster Deluxe” plastic pants The “Leakmaster Deluxe” plastic pants are made from a heavy gauge vinyl which makes them more durable than other plastic pants. I’ve worn this pant for years and it’s an excellent plastic pant. The “Leakmaster Deluxe” plastic pants will fit older children and teenagers that wet the bed and the “Leakmaster” adult size nighttime prefold cloth diapers will fit teenagers and adults that wet the bed (they may fit a large size bedwetting child as well, if not the company also sells youth size nighttime prefold cloth diapers). The company that sells these diapers and plastic pants is All Together Enterprises also known as Here is the link for their website –

    Other places that sell pin-on style cloth diapers for older children, teenagers, and adults include Angel Fluff Diaper Company and Changing Times Diaper Company. Both of these companies also make a heavy gauge plastic pant. Angel Fluff sells it under the name “Ultimate Whisper Pant” and Changing Times Diaper Company sells a heavy gauge plastic pant called the “InControl Comfort Vinyl Pants” Here are the links for both companies – and

    Before I go, I wanted to pass along one more tip for parents of older children and teens that wet the bed (this is also applicable for adults that suffer from bedwetting). Some people have had problems with cloth diapers leaking. I line my adult diapers with baby diapers to prevent leaks. I buy the Gerber brand prefold and flat fold infant size cloth diapers from Walmart and layer the adult diaper with the baby diapers. Very rarely do I have leaks, and if I do they’ve been minor. In a case like that I add more baby diapers to the adult diaper the next night. Plus I have the bed wrapped in plastic sheeting for backup. This combo works like a charm. I really hope this information helps those parents who may be having a difficult time finding a suitable product to manage their older child or teenager’s bedwetting (as well as those adult bedwetters who may be having a hard time finding effective protection). I agree with you wholeheartedly – the market needs to open up more for this group of people.

  22. Thank you so much! I cloth diapered my three kids til my youngest was 2, then went through a stressful period and switched to disposables. Though long since potty trained, he’s now 7 and still wetting the bed, but desiring to get out of pull-ups This is very helpful – now I am sure I can find something that makes him feel less embarrassed by his need for overnight protection.

  23. The new Fuzzibunz Sweet Beginnings OS diapers fit on my 40 pound 4.5 year old (so they wouldn’t be helpful option for teens/adults, but if you just have a toddler who is late to potty training, they’d be an option to look into!)

  24. We have a newly adopted 13 year old daughter we have had now just over a month and we have her in cloth diapers and plastic pants[rubberpants] 24/7.So far they have been working for her accidents and bedwetting.We got the rubberpants in pastel colors as well as babyprints so she would at least have girly rubberpants over her diapers.

    1. Lori-we have an adopted daughter who is 14 and we also have her in the cloth diapers and rubberpants 24/7 and they work for her also! She was the flower girl in a relatives wedding recently,and since she is in the cloth diapers and rubberpants,my cousin got her a very cute,white,poofy,above the knees flower girl dress and veil to wear with lace anklets and white shoes to wear.I had pink ruffles sewn across the back of a pair of her white rubberpants that she wore over her cloth diapers and they looked so cute and adorable under her dress!

    2. To Lori-Does your daughter like the babyprint rubberpants? Our daughter turned 15 a couple of months ago and is still having bed wetting issues from her puberty.She has been wearing the cloth diapers and rubberpants for her bedwetting since she was 12.Her rubberpants are mostly white and pastels and lately she has been asking me to get her some with babyprints on them to wear over her diapers as she told me she is bored with the white and pastel ones.She has shown me a few pictures of the adult size rubberpants with babyprints and thinks they are cute! I want to know opinions of you and other moms here as to whether i should buy the babyprint rubberpants for her.Would they be too ‘babyish’ for her to wear since she is 15? How do other moms feel about this?

      1. When our daughter started puberty just before 12,she too started bedwetting and i put her into cloth diapers and rubberpants at night.Her and i picked out her rubberpants at various websites and she chose the standard pastel colors,then picked out several babyprint styles.She liked wearing them the best.She wore the babyprint rubberpants over her diapers untill her wetting stopped past 15.She even still liked them then!

      2. I am 16 and babysit for a family with two daughters who are a year apart at 13 and 12.Both girls are in puberty and bedwetting because of it.They both wear the cloth pin on diapers and rubberpants to bed everynight.When i babysit them.they both lay side by side and i pin their diapers on them,then put their rubberpants on over their diapers.They both have rubberpants with babyprints on them that they like to wear over their diapers which i think is cute.

  25. Thank you! Your page was the first to pop up in my search for “cloth diapers for older children” and this is MIGHTY helpful! My son is 11 years old and around 75 lbs. He has Special Needs, and just recently started having accidents again.
    In the past, when he was 6 years old, I had a difficult time finding someone to make cloth diapers for him. I did eventually find someone. But I don’t know if it was a mistake on my part (measurements) or their part reading the measurements and making the diapers. But I ended up with diapers that would fit me(!) an 180 lb adult, instead of a mid-size 6 year old.

    This list will give me many, many more options in finding what I need!

    1. That’s kind of exciting for me that this post comes up first 🙂 I wish there were more cloth products available in these sizes but I hope you are able to find what you’re looking for.

  26. My boys 11 and 13 year olds both wet. One uses a disposable diaper over night because he wets a lot but the 13 year old uses a Star Training Pants. They were just recently introduced. They are 8 layers thick cotton styled like the Gerber Training Pants for toddlers but designed for older boys and teens and even come in adult sizes. They do require a plastic pull-up over them because they are not waterproof but they are super comfortable compared to other cloth overnight trainers we have tried.

  27. Happy Heiny has some large sized diapers but they also will do custom orders (I’ve spoken with them in person and through Facebook and they take great pride in having the resources available to do special orders on either end of the size spectrum).

    Super Undies also has products for older children, particularly for nighttime use, as well as for adults (those are under the “special needs” heading at the top of the page).

    1. There is a company in Waterloo, Ontario (Canada) that has all sizes. REARZ I’ve purchased baby cloth diapers from them and have been in their showroom personally. Great product.

  28. Super Undies makes bed wetter pants in sizes up to 44 inches. I’m older and I started wetting the bed again ( I wet at night until I was 16). The super undies pants are a little pricey ($50) but they work well. Given good adult disposable diapers are over $ 1.00 each the super undies are cheaper. Also my trash can smells a lot better! I found that plastic pants are a good idea since I had them anyway. I wash the super undies and I’m good to go.

  29. hi there, amazing post I will go and try one of the suppliers. I am on a mission to find the right diapers for my son with CP. It is such a jungle. The concept of wrapping him in big plastic diapers all his life does not appeal to me. Thank you so much for all your work!

    1. Kathrin, I so agree with you. My son has CP with the same lifelong prognosis as your son and I’m on the same mission. I shudder when I hear that plastic crinkling. Let me know if you have any luck with any of these, or just to compare notes, if you’d like.

  30. hi there, amazing post I will go and try one of the suppliers. I am on a mission to find the right diapers for my son with CP. It is such a jungle. The concept of wrapping him in big plastic diapers all his life does not appeal to me. Thank you so much for all your work!

  31. thank you so much for putting this together, a great resource for anyone who is on a mission to reduce environmental waste and to be gentle on my son’s skin. He has special needs and will be in diapers his life. The thought of covering him in plastic does not appeal to me. Thanks again.

  32. This list is awesome–thank you so much! My son has multiple disabilities and is completely incontinent, and I’ve been wishing I could use cloth diapers on him. I finally got around to searching and here I am. I’m definitely going to try some of these. I would be awesome if I could find something like an wrap.

    1. Although I’ve only used their smaller sizes Snap EZ is a great company. They have disabled children themselves (Down syndrome) and so they understand the needs of families with special needs. Their pocket diapers are well made and fit nice and trim.

  33. You mentioned adult incontinence…for women who experience mild incontinence (like after childbirth, anyone?), Dear Kates are pretty wonderful.

    Has anyone tried Huggies TruFit? I’m thinking of getting those when DS outgrows his trainers.

    1. I have recently heard of the Tru Fit underwear but haven’t heard of anyone’s experience. I hope someone weighs in because I would be curious to see how well they work.

  34. GREAT post! My son is 3.5 and wears a diaper at night, but he’s tall with a high rise, and finding something super absorbent AND big was a NIGHTMARE! We ended up going with the Mother-ease Bedwetter Pants and have been SO pleased with them! I will say that they are super bulky and poofy looking, so they wouldn’t be a great option for daytime as it’d be hard to fit clothing over them without looking ridiculous (though I suppose in a pinch it would be POSSIBLE, just not something to do on a regular basis!) 😉

    1. I am so glad that you weighed in as someone who has tried them. The only diapers on this list that I have any personal experience with is Ragababe and Fuzzibunz

  35. ahh wish I knew these resources sooner. I stopped cloth diapering my daughter when she got to 2 becuz it got to hard with sizes and all that but I wanted to continue since it was very helpful with her learning to use the potty. she regressed a bit with pull ups bcuz they absorb so well and it doesn’t bother her to be wet. with cloth she didn’t like the way it felt when wet so she was more diligent on using the potty. Other plusses being they are so cute fashion wise and perfect for hot days, and better for the environment . o well, if I ever have another kid at least now I have the resources. and when im old and back in diapers ima make sure my daughter uses cloth ;-p
    thank u for this post 🙂

  36. Thank you for putting this together. We often forget that every child, every individual has different needs and being able to meet them is so important for parents and caregivers! Many of the young children I’ve worked with that have developmental challenges would LOVE to be able to pick out a cool pattern/style as opposed to having to wear a generic disposable!

  38. Seriously great of you to help out since this kind of search was leading to you anyway. Thanks.

  39. Thank you so much for this! It is getting to the point where some of my old relatives are having continence problems, and I didn’t think there were any cloth products for adults! (((HUGS)))

  40. You are providing a great service here. keep it up. Have a 7 year old nightly bedwetter in Hineys Liney’s Big Kid Versa Cover. Works just fine, been using 3 of them for over a year.

  41. Thank you so much! I am a mom of 4. 2 are in diapers and one of them is 11. Most of my kids have Down syndrome and have had a much longer challenge in potty training. I am a fan of cloth, am using them for our youngest. My older son also has other disabilities and will continue to be in diapers, so I have been looking for bigger brands. (11 years has added up$$) thanks again!

    1. You’re very welcome. I hope that you’re able to find something perfect for your needs.
