With the new year just around the corner, we’ve decided to reflect on our most popular incontinence products of 2012:
- Tranquility Booster Pads: These are an oldie, but goodie, that increase the absorbency of any brief or protective underwear. They can be used universally with an adult diaper, reusable absorbent underwear, or pull-up, making them extremely popular.
- Step-Free Vaginal Cones: This kegel exerciser was featured on Dr. Oz this year, skyrocketing its popularity. Vaginal cones are easy to use and feature graduated weights, so there is no need to buy additional products to increase the difficulty.

Have you ever had only one diaper left in your possession? Life caught up on you, you’re about to embark on a 7-day vacation, yet you have no incontinence protection on hand. You run to the nearest convenience store but of course, they don’t carry that one particular brand or type of adult diaper you use. Panic ensues. What can you do?
Nocturnal enuresis, or bedwetting, can be frustrating for both the parent and the child. Affecting more than five million children in the United States, bedwetting can be caused by a variety of factors including genetics, food sensitivities, high urine production during sleep, and constipation. Many parents wait it out, in hopes that their child will simply “grow out” of bedwetting. However, according to a new infographic published by the Bedwetting Store, only 15% of bedwetters will stop wetting the bed on their own. This means that 85% of bedwetting children will still need help.
“I am 6 months post-partum and just recently started running again. But whenever I do, I wet myself! I love to run, and I don’t want to give it up. What can I do to prevent this embarrassing condition?”
It looks like you’re experiencing exercise-induced incontinence, a form of stress incontinence. It means that urinary leakage occurs during any physical activity that puts pressure onto your abdomen. Bladder leakage while running affects 30-40% of women, especially after childbirth. But despite its prevalence, there’s no need to give up the exercises you love. There are non-surgical, at-home treatments that can greatly diminish incontinence symptoms.
