Teen diapers may not be the most appealing option to you or your teenager but when facing the consequences of not wearing incontinence protection it can look more and more like a good idea.
I started wearing diapers again as a teenager when I started to have teen bed wetting issues. At first I wasn't very keen on wearing diapers. After a while of doing a lot of laundry every day it became a necessity.
It was costing me more time and money doing laundry everyday than any teen should spend. Eventually I got tired of it and resorted to using adult diapers.
There really weren't any specialty teen products the time. There are a few for this particular demographic now these days though.
While I was fortunate to only suffer from bed wetting as a teen not all are as lucky as me.
I didn't start having daytime incontinence until I was in my early twenties and I was also bestowed with the knowledge beforehand that it would eventually happen. So I was lucky enough to be prepared so that I would never find myself in a humiliating situation.
At least when it comes to wetting my pants outright without a diaper.
For most people it would take only one humiliating public accident to decide to find some sort of diaper to wear to help prevent it from happening again.
For a teen, just one humiliating accident at school is social suicide! You will forever be branded as the one who wet his pants. Destined to spend the rest of your school days as a social outcast.
Don't let this happen to you or to your teen! If it has already happened though don't worry. We can equip you with the confidence and attitude it will take to wear your brand with pride.
From teen incontinence to teen bedwetting, there are more than a few teenagers out there that have a need for teen diapers.
Discreet diapers for teens can help incontinent and bedwetting teens build their independence. Thus contributing to their confidence and mental well being.
While incontinence and bed wetting are a problem for any grown person, it can be especially difficult for a teen to tackle them head on.
It certainly was for me. I carried around the shame and fear for years before I finally learned to let it all go. It was particularly troublesome when I was a teen.
Not only does wearing an adult diaper come with all sorts of stigmas attached to it but teens have to deal with all sorts of other changes and social pressures as well.
School, puberty, dating, sports,..etc.
So throw a diaper in the mix and you certainly have for a tough time.
Not to worry though. Having to wear diapers isn't all that bad after a while. It's all about attitude. It just takes a certain perspective to adopt the right attitude towards it all.
I know you can feel like you're the only teen in the whole world that still has wetting problems. This just isn't true. One in one hundred teens still wets the bed.
So if there are a thousand kids in your high school then there are at least 9 other bed wetters there with you.
For those who are totally incontinent, well we are out there as well. You don't realize or know this simply because we use diapers to manage our problems just like you will too.
It's scary at first but after a while you'll begin to realize that no one even knows that you're wearing it. Let me ask you this, How often do you consider what kind of underwear one your friends is wearing? Probably never right?
If you're using diapers for night time problems then only family members and close friends will need to know. That is of course you adopt an open door policy which I highly recommend.
If someone finds out you just explain to them your medical condition and they're usually pretty understanding of it. I wish I would have been more open about it earlier on in my life. Now that I am, I am a hundred times happier than I have ever been.
Of course we know you probably will want to avoid having people find out so we have some tips to help you out with that too. There are lots of discreet options available like the Molicare Premiums you see here to the right.
We just recommend being open and honest as soon as you're comfortable with it as you will feel much better about yourself.
For those who aren't ready though we will point out things like which diapers offer the most discretion and how well they will protect you. We will also give you all the best pointers on how to remain discreet.
Even if you are open about it you should still maintain a level of cleanliness and discretion.
The social stigma attached to the need of wearing diapers is not what it used to be. While it is still a challenge to overcome it becomes apparent when looking for adult diapers that there are many people out there who need them.
This website alone sees over 18,000 visitors a month! We are talking young adults between the ages of 15 and 50!!!
So you are definitely not alone.
Some people need them for physical reasons while others need them for psychological reasons.
At least 400 million around the globe suffer from some type of incontinence or condition that drives them to use adult diapers. Possibly more!
This rise in demand coupled with better manufacturing methods has made a large variety of teen diapers available to choose from.
Babies and the elderly aren't the only ones who need diapers ya know! We now offer some snazzy cloth options as well.
We are looking to expand our offerrings and to develop a product that no one would recognize as a diaper if they saw it.
Despite the amount of people out there wearing diapers there are so few who are willing to admit it and discuss it openly. We feel this contributes to any social stigma our diaper wearing community might happen to feel is thrust upon them.
While it isn't quite as bad as it used to be it is still there. It is up to those of us who are courageous enough to be open about it to help improve this common perception.
It is only once those of us who suffer start to share that suffering with others that we can expect to see a shift in the perception from one of disgust to one of compassion. They can never understand if we never talk about it.
These are designed specifically with teenagers and preteens in mind. They seem to be primarily for teen boys.
Young teens can be especially difficult to find teen diapers for. Often times, for preteens, adult diapers can be too big.
On the other side of that coin, youth diapers can be too small, babyish and/or offer inadequate absorption.
That's where Race Car Diapers come in! They're designed with younger teens and preteens in mind. They're pretty much one of the only teen diapers out there that was made specifically with teens in mind.
Especially those teens that are in that odd in between sizes phase.
They come with these neat Race Car Graphics on them and are one of the only larger sized diapers made for incontinence that come with any sense of style to them.
They perform well enough but the biggest downside is their expense. However, if you have preteen or adolescent who is having a hard time accepting their need for diapers just show them these and they will realize they are not the only one their age who needs them.
One of the best options for older teenagers or heavy wetters is Dry 24 7's new ConfiDry. These are the most absorbent adult diapers available on the market!
Hands down the best made diaper there is to choose from! Available in a small that measures 21"-31" you really can't go wrong with this diaper.
A close runner up to the Dry 24 7's is of course none other than the Original Plastic Backed Abena's.
The 24/7's absorb a bit more because they are far more durable but the Abena's are still a decent option as well.
The great thing about Abena is that there are multiple levels of absorbency to ensure you always have an option that is most comfortable. These different levels of absorbency are only available in their cloth backed versions though.
Some of these teen diapers we have recommended are a bit on the thicker side. When wearing these types of diapers out and about its always best to have a pair of pants or shorts that's just a size too big. This way maximum comfort and confidence is assured.
For example, If you or your kid regularly wears a size 30 then be sure to get a size 32 to better conceal your teen diapers with.
This will help your teen feel comfortable when out in public. It greatly helps diminish the self conscious thoughts of whether or not anyone is noticing.
There are also a variety of thinner more discreet diapers available to choose from. Prevail, Attends and Tranquility are pretty good brands to try out.
They each have both tape up and pull up diapers available in various degrees of absorption. We would advise against most pull up brands for anything more than minor leakage. An actual tape up better will always be more secure.
So when it comes to making sure you or your teen are well protected try one of the brands mentioned here.
As time goes on you will see that living with teen bed wetting or teenage incontinence can be achieved. Having a high quality of life demands you get out there and be social!
