I wanted to mention one thing I just remembered and I did post if months ago. My Mom was the SAME way and all urine tests were negative. I begged her Dr for amoxicillin for a UIT "just in case" knowing that dogs can have one without it showing up on a test. Moms heavy urine leakage at night dimished trememdoously! She went off the medication, it came back. So we went on it again for a week and now she takes one amoxicillin daily as a preventative. She rarely wets the bed now. A friend told me to cut out drinks a few hours before bed and get her up at midnight, it helped a little but the uti medications worked so well she goes 12 hours at night now. Just a thought for you all ...............................

I also went out and got a cheap plain white shower curtain that i placed on top ofthe mattress and also placed a thinks large mat they sale for adult that help. and also placed mom's matress on a small up raised so she would not pee ll the way up her back. it work at first . The pads I had fogot about I did buy them and also added them to the diaper at time I would also place a pair of large cotton panties over her, I also used the cream I menentioned before. When she was placed in the assisting living i purchased the large Pull ups they also have in Sams and the diapers . I always had extra when I had to take her to the doctor if an emergency came up. The most important thing is to watch out for sores and reddness to the area.

At night we used the large Sams diapers and put a baby diaper with it. Baby diapers at Walmart are cheaper the sams. But adult diapers are cheaper at Sams then walmart.

We have to use the pull ups. I hear the tabs are better. We use Sams for day and for night we use Abena® Abri-Flex Air Plus

If you have a store like Sams club , or Super Walmart they have large diapes that they used in the hospitals and also another brand that is also as good. Good luck in your search.

My mom does exactly as Angelgirl posted. She wears the highest absorbency Depends, then adds the Tena highest absorbency pads (sometimes she will use 2 pads at the same time).

Walgreens, get the tabbed ones, they work better than the pull-ups.

I had a client that depends as good as they were just didn't cut it unless changed more frequently. I did find that putting those Poise Bladder control pads in the crouch of the depends worked great. It will make it more bulky, but the choice for her was wet clothes or the extra bulk and she was OK with that. I hope this helps and good luck.
