I have found that Abeena Makes a very absorbent pad that fits inside a diaper, Use Nighttime diapers-I like those from Walmart or Abeena.
For my husband I used the pad, diaper, and depends all together and all the most absorbent.

Is the problem the products cannot handle the amount or just leak? There are several good products that just plain leak (always or sometimes) with my mother, even with a small amount of fluid. Walmart's brand of unisex overnight incontinence panties do not leak. I suggest you try some of the incontinence panty products. If the amount of fluid is a challenge, you can try scoring the back of a pad (making holes in the plastic barrier) and adding it to the incontinence panty.

I never thought of the scoring. I even told her that I didn’t think that putting multiple pads in the Depends would work bc the urine hits the plastic. So, you’re saying, put some small holes in the back of the pad and then put that inside of the incontinence panty?
Thank you!

My husband is also incontinent. In my experience, the store brand briefs aren’t really that absorbent and need to be changed frequently. The pad products don’t work for us at all, even when inserted inside the briefs. Prevail briefs work the best for us. You can also go on a medical supply website and order ones not available in stores. In this case, you do get what you pay for. Make sure they fit snugly and there are no big gaps around the legs. Change every few hours.
