  1. It was when I was in my early 20s that I started having similar problems as you, punk18. I would have very sudden urges to urinate and would sometimes be peeing every 15-20 minutes. I could easily be peeing 20 times daily. This made life difficult but I never did anything about it except I began wearing diapers during my commute, etc. It wasn't until 10 years or so later that I realized that it was caffeine that was causing my frequent urination. Even if I just had one cup of coffee or tea my bladder would be very affected. If I knew then what I know now! My advice is to cut all caffeine from your diet and see how your body reacts.
  2. Here's a post on all the different bizarre "Miss" pageants. Scroll down and you will see "Miss Diaper Queen" being crowned...err...pinned, by two other ladies in cloth diapers. http://allday.com/post/5488-from-miss-diaper-queen-to-sweater-girl-12-totally-bizarre-vintage-beauty-pageants/i/
  3. I don't think I can add any other advantages to cloth-backed disposables but I do prefer them to plastic-backed. I've never had the tapes fail on me. The tapes are adjustable - I like this because after an hour or two, the diaper does stretch out and it's nice to re-tighten the fit and make it more snug. The diaper is silent, not crinkly (which is important for me, someone who wears diapers 24/7). And those are probably the top three selling points for me. At this point I wouldn't want to go back to plastic-backed diapers. If you haven't tried Abena Delta-form briefs M3/L3, I recommend giving them a try.
  4. I've tried a lot of different things for cycling; recently I was wearing depends real fit under my chamois and that worked well for a 2-3 hour ride. Even better, last season, I switched to Abri-san Super pads for wearing in my chamois. They worked perfectly! They are about the same size as the pad in the chamois so they are completely undetectable. The chamois acts as a support stocking so it keeps the pad well in place. A "Super" should be enough protection for 2-4 hours on the bike but if you need a change they are so compact that you can carry a spare in your jersey pocket and a change only takes a minute as you don't need to remove any clothing. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
  5. Just want to warn everyone - Japanese diapers are meant to be worn with a booster inside. On their own they are about as absorbent as a depends. I'm not saying the quality is bad, but at $10 per, you will probably be disappointed (considering that a pack of 20 costs about $15 in Japan).
  6. i used to wear depends real fit under my lycra - they were very discreet and can last me a good 2 hours as you don't really pee very much when exercising. now i wear abri-san super. they are cheaper than depends real fit, can hold much more, and are completely discreet as their shape pretty much matches the shape of the padding in your cycling shorts. if i were to do a longer ride - over 3 hours, i would just put an extra abri-san in my jersey pocket as they are pretty compact. and, of course, changing a pad is much quicker and easier than changing out a whole brief.
  7. Repaid - no, these leak guards are different from every other diaper. Yes, most leak guards are at first stuck down, but always are pointed in towards the center of the diaper. Seni's leak guards are pointed out. It defies logic. I guess you need to see them to understand what i mean.
  8. I've been using the both of the Seni styles from Xpmedical. I haven't had any problems with them so far. My only question - is anyone else puzzled by the stand up leak guards? I don't think they would be as effective the way the are positioned (lying flat, pointed "out").
  9. In the future, just order online and have them delivered to a nearby Fedex store. That's what i always do. Just make sure that the company you order from uses Fedex shipping - like xpmedical.com, for example.
  10. the incontinence products in japan are a little bit confusing if you don't know what you are looking for. but, they are readily available at any pharmacy store, called Kusuri, and denoted with the symbol è–¬. good quality pullups and tape style diapers are available, though, all are cloth-backed. i recommend bringing plastic pants with you to wear over them as they do seep-through ever so slightly. once you select the pullup or tape style diaper you prefer (all are pretty much the same), you MUST buy the absorbent inserts to put in them as the diapers by themselves are not very absorbent. you can see how absorbent the inserts are by looking at the top right of the package for a number, usually between 2 and 6. 6 is the most absorbent. the pull-up inserts are different from the regular diaper inserts, so make sure to look at the package to see which you are buying. the nice part about this system is that if your diaper is just wet, you can just change out the insert and continue using the same diaper. this creates less waste and rather than having to bring a bunch of diapers with you, you can just bring a few inserts with you which usually are small enough to fit in your coat pocket. and using this system you will find that these diapers can be just as absorbent as abena x-plus, molicare super plus, etc.
  11. It's always such a strange feeling when you've found out someone you've lost touch with has passed away. I don't really know what the feeling is...like life can end and perhaps you wouldn't even know about it. I understand your feeling, Jaina, even if I don't really know what that feeling is; something similar has happened to me a number of times.
  12. Cloth-backed nappies could be the future in europe and usa. In Japan plastic backed nappies haven't existed for as long as I can remember. Tena is also a relatively new product in Japan and I tried out the tena slip maxi there. They were different than the ones AB Jane has reviewed. First off, they were smaller and lower-cut than the plastic-backed european version meaning that they fit too low on my hips and always felt like they were about to slide off my hips. Secondly, they are pulp-based rather than polymer, making them much thicker when dry.
  13. Well, if she's already been to a bunch of doctors and they can't give her an answer, I don't think you'll find a cure amongst this group. If she's been going through this her whole life I think the best thing for her to do is begin to accept herself for who she is and that she is a bedwetter. She's very lucky to be with someone who doesn't have a problem with it. If I were in your shoes I would do my best to let her know that it's not a big deal and that you fully accept this side of her. Help her find some products that work better than what she has been using and just continue to reassure her. There isn't always a cure or fix for everything in life.
  14. i've just bought a pack of tena flex super from asda. they were 20 pounds. my asda has also started carrying tena pants maxi. both of these items are new there since the summer. still better off ordering tena products online. btw, it's incredible how much cheaper tena slip is in england than on the continent or in the usa. i order tena slip maxi, medium, here for about 13.50 pounds. in usa they are nearly 28 pounds! twice the price! in austria they were 21 pounds. i wonder why they are so much cheaper in uk than elsewhere?
  15. My philosophy in life is that as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else it's fine by me (and probably shouldn't even concern me anyway). Otherwise, interesting story!
