Tips and Tricks for the Newly Incontinent

If you’re newly incontinent and overwhelmed, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans are learning how their incontinence fits into their lives and how to manage it daily. There are many aspects of managing UI, such as finding the right products, supporting bladder health, and managing UI at work, on the go, and from home.

One of the biggest obstacles newly incontinent people face is getting a full night’s sleep. Leaks can interrupt your sleep cycle and make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. 

That’s where Because Market steps in. We’re here not only to inform you about how to manage UI if you are a newcomer but also to offer you products that can make your life easier. 

Tips for Leak-Free Sleep

Sleep is essential for maintaining the health and wellness of our minds and bodies. However, it’s common for those with incontinence to experience interrupted sleep due to leaks. It may even be challenging to fall asleep because of constantly worrying about leaks. Here are a few tips for the newly incontinent that can help you get a better night’s sleep.

Leak-Free Protection

The best way to protect against leaking while you sleep is to find the right incontinence products for you. Depending on what type of incontinence you have, you may need a different kind of protection. For example, if you tend to get rid of larger amounts of urine at once, use our Maximum Overnight Underwear that holds up to six cups of liquids.

If you tend to have smaller leaks, you may be fine sleeping with a smaller amount of protection. Consider our Maximum guards for men that can hold up to two cups of liquid or our Premium Pads for women. There’s the perfect size, shape, and absorbency for everyone, so no matter what type of UI you have, it’s important to pay attention to how your body works so you can figure out what products are right for you. 

Use a Bed Protector

Using a bed protector is a great way to add protection to your sheets and bed while you sleep. You’ll be able to sleep without worrying about leaks or having to change your sheets in the middle of the night in the event that you do leak. Our Bed Protectors are designed with multiple layers, waterproof backing, and odor-proof technology. 

Take Time To Relax

If you’re newly incontinent, sleeping may feel stressful or intimidating. It’s important to take time to relax before bed. You can take a bath, journal, or try relaxing yoga poses. This will help ease your mind, help you wind down, and help you fall asleep faster. Plus, using leak-free incontinence underwear and a bed protector will help ease your worries about leaks.  

Tips for on the Go

Here are a few tips for managing UI when you’re on the go. 


When you’re out and about, it’s important to know how to dispose of incontinence products properly. The best way to do so is to use a disposable bag. It’s biodegradable, solid in color, and has two handles so you can tie the bag before placing it in the trash can. 

It uses odor technology and a fresh lavender scent to help mask odors as well, so whether you’re at the office, on a road trip, or shopping, you can dispose of incontinence products easily and discreetly. Another tip is to find incontinence products that are easy to put on and remove

Skin Care

If you need to dispose of incontinence products on the go, it’s important to learn how to take care of your skin on the go, too. Look for cleansers that hydrate skin and balance pH, moisturizers and creams that will help protect your skin’s moisture barrier, and products to keep your hands clean. 

Our On-The-Go Skincare Package has everything you need to keep your skin comfortable and free from irritation wherever you are. Plus, they’re easy to use, fit in a purse or bag, and don’t require any rinsing. 


Finding the right absorbency for incontinence underwear is another tip to make managing UI easier. If you don’t have enough absorbency, you may experience leaks or find yourself changing UI products more frequently. 

Our Premium Bladder Control for Men and Women comes in a variety of sizes, fits, and absorbency levels, so there’s a product for everyone, no matter what type of UI you have.
