I have heard that double padding is not effective and shouldn’t be done. However, one of my friends who used to be a nurse recommended double padding for my mum who has heavy incontinence. Have had no problems so far. I find it puts her mind at ease and is cheaper than buying the more absorbent products. Is this actually okay?
Double Padding is ineffective. The back of pads are waterproof, meaning liquid will not flow from one pad to another. It is also a risk for infection, as the pad will not be absorbent enough, causing risk to skin damage and irritation. Please invest in a heavier product for her.
What product is she in currently?
