My son has special needs and also has a VP Shunt. He is continent through the day generally but incontinent through the night. He has outgrown the nappie range and we are looking into other options. I was trying to avoid having to use and extra pad in the drynites.

Hi K.D., DryNites offer similar absorbency to the Junior nappies – the decision to switch is typically motivated by children’s desire to wear something more ‘underpant like’ or as in your case, they require a larger absorbent pant. Can I recommend you request a free sample off the website first to see if they provide a proper fit. Try both the smaller and larger size, as leakage can occur if the pant is too large around the upper thigh. All the best. Regards, Dr Cathrine
