Bedwetting underwear buying guide

Absorbent products can help ensure a worry-free, confidence-boosting night's sleep for everyone.

Once you're in the aisle, you'll find an array of products boasting a variety of benefits. They fall into two key groups: absorbent underwear and absorbent mattress pads (bedwetting mats).

Bedwetting underwear shopping tips

Disposable underwear are designed to help ensure dry nights and provide discreet protection with a quiet soft fabric, a comfortable feel, and cool graphics.

What to look for:

  • Leak protection – the higher the better. Tip: GoodNites® Underwear are the most absorbent product for boys and girls age 4 and up.
  • Comfort. Sizing shouldn't be complicated. GoodNites® Underwear comes in two easy-to-pick clothing sizes.
  • Quietness. Opt for underwear that doesn't crinkle or sound like diapers.
  • Age-appropriate design. Putting children in diapers or daytime training pants can make them feel like something is wrong with them. Graduate your child to GoodNites® Underwear, which feature suitable graphics, and are also lower cut so they don't peek out of garments.

Bedwetting mats shopping tips

Absorbent mattress overlays like GoodNites® Bed Mats are essential for coping with bedwetting. They're easy to place and remove, they can absorb the same amount of fluid as a large pair of GoodNites® Underwear (size L–XL), and they help to minimize laundry by keeping your child's bedding dry. Consider a mat in addition to bedwetting underwear if your child's accidents tend be larger.

What to look for:

  • High absorbency. A mat should absorb as much fluid as a pair of bedwetting underwear (GoodNites® Bed Mats do).
  • Breathable, quiet materials. Opt for a mat that is soft and breathable while still providing excellent protection.
  • A stay-in-place application that lasts through the night. Mats with non-residue adhesive, like GoodNites® Bed Mats, prevent bunching in the night, but are easy to remove in the morning.
