My mother is still mobile, so she uses the pull-up type. At night, I add 2 additional pads inside the pull-up to absorb extra fluid to last till morning. Half of the time, she still wets the disposable bed protector sheet. I do try to limit her fluid intake in the evening, and it does help (half of the time).
If your mother is bed-ridden, then the diapers with tabs will be easier to put on. I know some people use two together at night for extra absorbency. You will have to make slits on the inside diaper so that fluid can seep down to the outer diaper.
One thing that I have done before was to call facilities and ask them which ones they like the best.
They use so many they buy in bulk so I knew that they saw first hand how well they worked.
Other than that you can read reviews and try a few different ones to test at first.
Every now and then some people scold others for using the word diaper.
It doesn’t bother me. My mom who wears them calls them diapers. Just letting you know though.
Some people find it degrading and say that diapers are for children.
Some say adult briefs or adult underwear.
I don’t think that people are intentionally trying to degrade their loved ones by saying diapers. As I said, just giving you a heads up.
There is also the possibility that mom should be changed during the night.
I would change my Husband before I went to bed, that was about 3 hours after he went to bed and I would often have to change him around 3 or 4 AM as well.
