I have found that Walgreens Certainty brand are very good and lower price. They often have buy one get one 50% off. My husband has been in these diapers for about 3 yrs now and I buy a Certainty guard for men (have women too) to put in the diaper also as he can really wet. I have also found that Miles Kimball has very good pads to put on the bed that are washable and have lasted a good long time already. )(Look under the incontinence section).They prevent your sheets, chair, etc from getting soaked. Miles Kimball is online and from Wis. I have tried a more expensive diaper that is suppose to hold more urine and it is no better than the Certainty brand. I also had bought a "personnel bidett" as listed in a catalog, is a a bottle with a long nozzle, you squirt it directed to his rear, that will help with care when he is on the toilet and had a BM. Makes it so much easier to get him clean. You can put warm , soapy water in it and help to get the stool off him. I have lots of experience here.......can be challenging and I do washing nearly every day. I try to get him to the toilet every 2-4 hrs when he was walking to help prevent accidents. Wishing you the best.

My husband is usually fully alert, and when he has bowel/bladder trouble, he can, with difficulty, usually clean himself and anything that got soiled, by himself --with me around to step in if he needs it. What he can't do is wear diapers. Since they have a waterproof layer, they trap moisture, including sweat. He is, other than his toileting times, pretty much stationary in his special chair, so his backside gets very warm. Diapers have given him UTIs and really nasty rashes and sores that required medical attention followed by weeks of wound care by me. So he came up with a system of paper towels, folded in different configurations depending on where they go --a pad of 8 squares goes in the back, another pad of 3.5 squares folded into a rectangle goes in the front, etc. We spend a LOT on paper towels, but they keep him clean and dry and more comfortable than any of the other products we've tried. I wish there was a well-padded (all over), absorbent but NOT waterproof diaper that he could wear, and then just sit on a pile of cloth towels (which he does) that can just be rinsed off and then tossed into the washer when necessary.

Use adult diapers instead of pull ups. Pull ups are not made for bowel incontinence. If he/she is in a wheelchair you are going to deal with the back of the whlchr smelling and it’s extremely difficult to eliminate the smell. I’m going thru the same thing and have had to stop using the pull ups.

My mom likes Silhouettes Depends best, but that's only relative to others. I agree with the other responders -- not a lot of attention has been paid to bowel incontinence. My brother seems to have a product that works fairly well -- let me check with his staff to find out the brand.

I have used Tena diapers and they work good for bowel incontinence. check out the web page for www.tena.com, and type in bowel incontinence in the search and it will show you different diapers and briefs they have. I have tried many different diapers, and I like these the best. Good luck... :)

My husband is incontinent both ways. The visiting physician told us to purchase incontinence underwear for women because the padding goes all the way across instead of just in the front like on the male incontinence briefs. However, there are no briefs designed especially for bowel incontinence. Inserting an extra pad in the back can be uncomfortable and annoying.

I have started purchasing “overnight” incontinence underwear for my husband.

Unfortunately I don't think the makers of incontinence products have spent much time designing for bowel incontinence, in our experience loose watery BMs never were absorbed into the product but overflowed instead and I found that the ones I tried with better leak guards caused terrible chafing. Have you tried wearing something over the brief to help contain overflow - I used plain underwear, the kind with long, snug legs but there are plastic pants available.
