They are underwear for children which can be disposable, washable, waterproof, with a built-in pad or for use with incontinence pads.
They can help prevent leaks and spills as your child goes about their day, giving them confidence and comfort.
Children who need support with their incontinence may benefit from using paediatric incontinence knickers.
Make sure to double-check that the absorbency level is right for your child's needs before purchasing. Some knickers are designed to be used with a pad and some have protection included. Read the product descriptions and specifications carefully.
For sizing, we recommend taking their waist and hip measurements. The larger of the two is more commonly used to determine the best fit.
If your child is having problems with incontinence and you're thinking of buying products for the first time, we would recommend that you talk to your GP, district nurse or local continence service if you haven’t already done so. They can identify the cause, discuss treatment options and, if products are available to help manage their problem, they can tell you what the NHS will provide.
