Nappies on prescription?
Posted 14 January 2013 - 12:38 AM
My first born son is 6 years old, and Ive recently been told that it may be possible to get his nappies on prescription? Or get some sort of grant for them? He refuses to use the toilet to poo, and needs 2 or 3 at night too. So up to 4 a day. Adds up to a lot of money when he's in the biggest size possible! He gets DLA already, as he was diagnosed last year with asd and adhd. So obviously that pays for them at the moment.
Was just wondering if anyone has any ideas on this?
Also, how do I get nappies bigger than whats available in the supermarkets?!
Thanks in advance

Unfortunately our son didn't like any of the samples so we buy Huggies or Pampers (depending on what's on offer) night-time pyjama pants because they go up to age 14. The Huggies ones are the roomiest, but if the Pampers ones are cheaper, we'll go with them because these types of nappies are very expensive, unfortunatley.

Asd is a developmental condition, so make sure you get his toileting issues dx'd as part of his asd,and not as anything else!
Daughter will be 8 next week. Still in nappies,still costing me a fortune. DLA doesn't even start to cover it!!!!
