Bedwetting, need help with diapers

My boy was having dry nights before his 3rd open heart at age 5 but after coding due to complications during mitral valve replacement and being on ECMO for a week, he needed diapers again.  He's 8 now but the bedwetting is only getting worse. I understand the causes but need help managing it because the diapers leak every night now, being so full. I dont know where or what diapers to use.  Ideas?

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to the patient support network. I am sorry to hear your son is going through this experience. While I am not a medical professional, I can offer some words of support and links to resources like this one on commonly asked questions about children and CHD. I hope that as you continue to connect with others here on the network, you can foster a sense of support and a space to share advice and similar experiences. 

    Best wishes,
