i also have a developmentally delayed child and she had severe toileting issues. I did it alone as daddy was gone, and i made it :-) I used commercial pull ups because i did not know how to sew. I do know how now tho'. My challanged daughter is now 15 and only occassionally wets the bed.
You know what i would do? I would take one of the commercial ones, open it up, lay it down and trace a pattern with seam allowance. I would duplicate what works in desposable into cloth. You could use shirring along the sides to make it stretchy, and snaps to allow for changing number two's. the actual soaker pads could be along the middle. I have had this idea brewing in my head for awhile, but have not done it yet. I have a 6 yr old daughter who bedwets, so i want to make one for her.
Perhaps you could use PUL on the outside and cotton or hemp on the inside.
