This is an index of popular medical and adult baby disposable diaper brands, sorted by advertised absorbency. Where different absorbencies are quoted for different sizes, the absorbency of the medium size is listed. I make no claims regarding the accuracy or methodological consistency of these ratings.
Iâve sorted them into different usage categories. If you mess, you may want to consider going up at least one category (e.g., if you would normally needÂ âDaytime Plusâ diapers during the day, you might want to go up toÂ âOvernightâ). This is because messing also uses some absorbency.
Iâve called these diapersÂ âslimâ because the only reason to wear them is if you really find that you need slimline protection.

These are great if youâre a tall/solidly built bedwetter, or if youâre going to be riding in someoneâs expensively upholstered car, or if someone else is changing your diapers. The point is, theyâre the bulkiest but also the most absorbent diapers you will wear.
