Men’s Nappies

If taking care of an elderly parent involves the use of nappies you may be wondering where to start. There are many men’s nappies in the market and you have to find a brand that will get the job done and also keep your parent comfortable. The first thing you need to decide is whether you will buy nappies or whether you will be better off buying diapers. The ultimate choice will come down to a few considerations. The first is money. Diapers are much more expensive than nappies because you can only use them once. Nappies, on the other hand, are designed to be washed and reused, so in the long term you will save a lot of money. The other thing you may want to take into account is the environmental impact that diapers have on the environment – every diaper that you use on your parent ends up in a landfill and over the years you will have thrown away a lot of used diapers. So long as there is someone available who can wash terry cloth nappies they are a better choice.
As you go shopping it is important to talk to your parent – they may already have a brand that they prefer. If they don’t you should get them to try several and then tell you which one they feel most comfortable in. Nappies come in two styles – there is one that you can wear the same way that you wear a pair of underwear, and the other type is fastened to the groin using Velcro. If your parent is still active you should buy the underwear type that they can put on and take off themselves, but if they are bedridden you will have a much easier time if you buy the type that has Velcro fasteners.
