    The professional adults nappies are provided by TENA. 
    Follow link here

    It is professional company with sorts of product for many disable people or people with bladder problems.

    Thanks @iza that's a really useful link for people who need to buy products - unfortunately my little girl is just at the stage where she doesn't fit comfortably in baby nappies but is way too small for Tena's.

    It's a funny stage I think a lot of families struggle with, especially as some kids who fit into baby nappies have big bladders and soak straight through them. 

    But it's great to see a supermarket recognising that kids over 3 may still
    need nappies. We only get 3 pads a day from the continence team here, so am happy I can buy some extras.

    Thank you for the info Blue Frog. I was in a bit of a tizz this morning with my little boy. He has an upset belly and I won't state the obvious except his size 6 nappy couldn't cope. I am hoping Tesco in Loweestoft stocks the new size 7. Wish me luck. :)

    Thanks Blue frog
    That is really good to know, zee can actually fit into size 5 but I use size 6 for her but even those get soaked within a few hours, I will try the size 7 and hopefully they won't be too big as she is very thin but needs more absorbency.
    The other problem I have is that I have been given a really small black bin and it only holds two weeks of nappies and occasionally half a bin bag of rubbish. There is only so much you can recycle so I am really struggling to dispose of the nappies and household rubbish its one or the other. Do you have any ideas?

    We asked the council for an extra black bin - they were absolutely fine about it and it's made life a lot easier. I put all the nappies in one right the other end of the yard so it doesn't smell by the back door!  I know we are in the borough next to yours but I imagine your council have a similiar scheme

    Is Zee getting free nappies on NHS now? this has also really helped us x
