TENA Libero, Promoting Confidence for Incontinence Management in Children.

15th August 2019

Approximately 10% of children and young people are affected by bladder and bowel (continence) problems (Paediatric Continence Forum, 2015).

 

These problems occur at a sensitive time in children’s physical and emotional development and can influence their health and wellbeing. There is also evidence of an association between continence problems and behavioural problems, including bullying – both as recipients and perpetrators (Joinson et al, 2006) – and a link between soiling accidents and child punishment, including physical abuse by parents (NICE, 2010).

 

Urinary incontinence (DUI) is experienced by many young people, and up to 1 in 4 adults too. In a class (20 children) of 5 year old’s – 4 will be bed wetting, 2 will be wetting during the day and 1 will be soiling.

 

There are various products use can use to help you with managing incontinence, like:

Nappies & pull Up’s
Continence pads
Continence pants
Mattress protectors
Products for skin care
Products for odour control

 

Urinary incontinence is frequently experienced by children with disabilities, putting them at increased risk for low self‐esteem and impacting upon participation in home, school and leisure activities. The stigma of incontinence can impact on opportunities for social participation, peer relationships and acceptance.

 

The range of Libero nappies for children and TENA incontinence products can help promote confidence and dignity to help minimise the impact of incontinence in their day to day living. Children and youths better able to manage incontinence can have greater independence and more opportunities for social participation.
