More and more people are confused as how to deal with incontinence. This is true for people of all ages, varying health status, and both genders. It can be difficult to find the right incontinence product to meet your needs, simply because so many types of products are available in the market now. The most common solution for incontinence management is a disposable incontinence product. However, these are not the only type of incontinence supplies that are available. Many people are turning to using cloth adult diapers to manage moderate to severe incontinence. This type of adult diaper has many advantages over their disposable counterpart and should be considered when someone is trying to find the right adult incontinence product. Here is why you should consider cloth adult diapers:

  • They are more comfortable. The disposable adult diapers are made from comfortable and natural materials that are used for adult cloth diapers. This type of product is often made from soft materials such as cotton, flannel, or even terry cloth. Since most of the people have sensitive skin, they find that using this type of adult diaper is much easier on them. You shouldn’t worry that cloth diapers are not absorbent enough as many of these materials have a high absorption rate. They are designed to keep moisture away from the skin. This will offer both; more comfort and more protection. Finally, many users of this type of product report that this type of diaper remains in place when compared disposable ones. 

  • They are more discrete. Almost everyone with incontinence is concerned about managing it privately and keeping their dignity. Cloth diapers can help you to do that. This type of incontinence product is much quieter when it is being worn and can fit under most normal clothes. They are often much more streamlined than their disposable counterpart. In addition, if you feel that you need additional protection, you can wear a disposable incontinence product inside the cloth diaper and still maintain discretion, comfort, and privacy. 

  • They cost less in the long run. Many people tend to pass over using cloth diapers at first glance since they are costly initially. However, when the cost is factored in for the long-term, they can actually cost much lesser than disposable incontinence supplies. Keep in mind that this is one time purchase cost. You can use the cloth adult diapers until they fall apart. It has been shown that even with the cost of laundering they are much more economical in the long run than disposable diapers. 

  •  They are much more environmentally friendly. There is no getting around the fact that any disposable incontinence product will end-up as landfill. The worst part is that they take a long time to disintegrate. This is simply not a problem while using cloth diapers. For those who are concerned about ecological responsibility, choosing this type of product will be the right choice in their incontinence management strategy.
