Best Diaper Booster Pad
Sizes available: Mini, Regular, Super
Price range: $6.99 - $7.99
Key features: Best Diaper Booster Pad; Additional Absorbency; Flow-through Design; Prevents Leaks; Latex-Free
Finding an absorbent product that prevents leaks and keeps you protected for hours can be difficult. Many people with incontinence turn to diaper booster pads to help! Booster pads are inserts that are added inside another absorbent product for extra absorbency. The Tranquility TopLiner Booster Pad is our Best Booster Pad for those dealing with bladder leaks.
What makes Booster Pads unique is that they have a flow-through top and back sheet. This allows the booster pad to fill to capacity and then pass urine through the pad and into the host garment (the absorbent product outside the booster). Tranquility TopLiner Booster can add 5.7 oz (Mini), 10.9 oz (Regular), and 14.2 oz (Super) of absorbency to another absorbent product. This allows for longer wear times and added leakage protection.
If you or someone you know is struggling with bladder leaks and needs better protection, Tranquility TopLiner Booster Pads can be added inside a pull-on style and tape-tab style product for extra protection. We recommend against Diaper Doubling and suggest the use of top-rated diaper booster pads like the Tranquility TopLiner Booster Pad.
