One of the unfortunate truths about life with kids is that sometimes, accidents happen. I’m going to be embarking upon my fourth potty-training adventure in the months to come, so I speak from experience. And potty-training can be a huge struggle with special needs children in particular.
Wearever specializes in incontinence products (bedding and underwear) and diabetic socks. The only incontinent person in our household is presently 10 months old, but my 8-year-old son with autism still has the occasional nighttime accident. So when I was given the opportunity to review a product from Wearever, I chose to check out their quilted bed pad. The thought of having an extra layer of protection between my son and his mattress, just in case, seemed like a fine idea. And a machine-washable bed pad seemed like a much better option than the flimsy disposable bed pads we’ve used in the past. This one can just stay on his bed, hidden under his sheet, for as long as necessary without tearing or shifting around. It doesn’t even make a “crinkly” sound like the disposable pads do, so there’s no annoying noise to bother him (making him much more likely to leave it in place).
I got the chance to test out the machine-washable durability of the bed pad shortly after it arrived. Thankfully, the substance was peanut butter rather than something else – Braeden decided to use the bed pad, which I’d set on the couch after it arrived in the mail, as a napkin for his gooey peanut-buttery hands. So into the washer it went! The website states that this bed pad can be machine washed and dried over 200 times – so even if you have a loved one in your life who has frequent nighttime accidents, this bed pad will last you for a while. I also discovered that it makes a handy furniture cover – it was much easier to toss the bed pad into the washing machine than it would have been to scrub peanut butter off of the couch! That experience has made me strongly consider purchasing a second bed pad to use in our minivan to protect the seats from spilled drinks and such.
Wearever has a 3-point philosophy, and their products have to meet the following criteria:
- Consistent quality and performance – “it has to work”
- Fashionable, stylish designs – “it has to be comparable with regular, contemporary underwear”
- Attractive pricing – “it has to be cheaper over its lifetime than its alternatives”
In addition to the quilted bed pad I reviewed, which retails for $17.99, Wearever also provides a winged mattress pad for $19.99, economy bed pads for $10.99, and full sized-bibs in a 3-pack for $19.99.
Wearever’s incontinence briefs for men and women are designed to be discreet and last for up to 250 washes. They have sewn-in Unique-Dri™ pads to trap liquid and they’re treated with Agion™ antimicrobial fibers to eliminate odors. Prices start at $12.99 for a single pair of women’s incontinence panties and $15.99 for a single pair of men’s classic incontinence briefs.
Wearever also offers 100% cotton diabetic socks made by Buster Brown. They’re ideal not just for diabetics but for anyone with poor circulation or even just sensitive skin, since they’re designed to be comfortable and have reduced binding. Prices start at $8.95. And Wearever partnered with Defeat Diabetes in the month of December:
A portion of proceeds from sales of select Wearever products will benefit nonprofit Defeat Diabetes Foundation this December. Wearever has partnered with Defeat Diabetes Foundation to raise funds that will further support the organization’s focus on the prevention, early identification and self-management of diabetes.
