A washable, absorbent brief for children who need daytime protection. Designed specifically for children, these special washable briefs are designed to be discreet and highly absorbent. The washable, sewn-in, absorbent padding will absorb up to 200 ml. (approximately 7 ounces). These pants look like regular boys briefs to increase confidence and allow everyday activities to be carried out without embarrassment. They are manufactured from cotton for comfort and a close fit. They also have a waterproof protective area.
For those who require extra absorbency, a sewn-in gusset pouch holds a disposable booster pad which absorbs an additional 5-10 oz. This increases the absorbable urine capacity. Latex free. Individually packaged.
These briefs are great for transitions from disposable pants while working on daytime continence. For children who can't wait for the bathroom (i.e. children with urgency), these briefs protect from embarrassing accidents. They are ideal for school situations requiring waterproof underwear, because they are noiseless and have the appearance of regular briefs. These briefs work best for leaking situations. For protection from complete bladder emptying, the addition of a disposable booster pad is recommended to add an extra 5 to 10 ounces of absorbency. To estimate the bladder capacity of children, take their age and add two to estimate ounces of urine.
They are generally not intended for nighttime wetting since they may not hold enough urine to keep children dry at night. This depends upon each child. These briefs cannot be used in conjunction with most bedwetting alarms because of the waterproof area.
