Question:
My son of 9 years is born with spina -bifida and is incontinent we cope rather well at this stage but thee problem is keeping him dry. We have problems in getting nappies to fit him. He has outgrown the huggies and now need the in between ones for a boy of small built. we are looking the weigtht between 45lbs-60lbs more or less. Where may we import from or do you have a name of a manufacturer somewhere. I can also advise you with what has been achieved in south africa medically wise with the spina bifida patients.


Answer:
Molnlycke do nappies and slip-pads of all sizes. Slip-pads are a sort of grown up version of nappies. I'm in the UK; I don't know if Molnlycke is international but with a name like that they ought to be. I'll try and get the phone number when I'm in work next week.

Has anyone talked to you about the possiblity of intermittent catherisation? It not only reduces the incontinence, but also the chances of getting a urine infection.
