  1. Compatibility with Current Products: It’s vital to choose a night bag that is compatible with your current urostomy system. Most manufacturers design their products to work seamlessly within their brand, ensuring a leak-proof connection.
  2. Contacting Manufacturers: In Canada, most urostomy product manufacturers have toll-free customer service lines. They can provide specific advice and information on the variety of night bags they offer.
  3. Variety in Size and Shape: Night bags come in various sizes and shapes. It’s a matter of finding the one that fits your needs and sleeping habits.
  4. Free Trials: If you are not satisfied with your current setup, consider reaching out to other manufacturers. Many offer free samples of their products, allowing you to test different night bags until you find the one that works best for you.
