Recommend a disposable diaper that works with bowel movements

I think my disposable diaper is adding to my problems of bowel impaction. At times it feels like there is ‘poop’ in the diaper that is preventing further evacuation so I don’t have a complete bowel movement

Do any of you have a recommendation for a good disposable diaper for someone who has bowel and bladder .incontinence?

I have not heard of a diaper product hampering a bowel movement. Is the one you are using extremely tight? Perhaps you just need a product that is more absorbent or that has a bit more room to it - so perhaps sizing is an issue? Most online retailers will send a few sample products to you so that you can select something that really works for you before you buy a whole package or a case of something.

My diaper is put on very tight and it also has extra pads so I can last through the night without having to wake my husband to change it.

I’ll take your advice and do some searching online and maybe get some samples. Perhaps a larger diaper or better fit will solve the problem. Thank you.

NorthShore is one of the many companies that is happy to send you samples, including the MegaMax mentioned along with others that are highly absorbent. I used several of their products and also a Tranquility product while caregiving my late husband, and they were great. Incredibly absorbent, fit well, and were comfortable for him. I hope you find something that works well for you!

Try the North Shore MegaMax, its a fantastic all-around choice. You may also like Better Dry or Trest. Those are probably my top three. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for the suggestions. I just looked at the mega max online and it should be a good one to try.

I’ll check out the other two also. Thank you.
