  1. I've been in diapers for about 10 years so my diaper preference has changed a bit over the years. I'm very active as well so I'm always experimenting to find the right level of protection vs. comfort level. Right now my go-to diaper is Attends active fit 9 or 10. They are great! they just have one tab on each side and are kind of a bikini-cut. They feel very light, quick to change, and the absorbency level is very high. They are also plastic-backed, and this is after I've been wearing cloth-backed for years. If you have to be in diapers 24/7, it's worth it to try out different diapers every once in awhile - you might find something out there that really improves your comfort level and overall happiness.
  2. As a teenager I would sneak a glass of wine from the box my parents kept in the refrigerator. I quickly found out that if I chugged a glass right before bed I would sleep so deeply and would always wake up in a wet bed. It was foolproof. Later, in college, this "training" seemed to carry on in my subconcious and I experienced more than a handful of wet beds after a night of drinking. This would have been very embarrassing but luckily I was never caught out. Once I started keeping diapers around for "just-in-case" this wasn't a problem and it got to the point where even if I would just have one or two beers I would wake up in a wet diaper.
  3. One more thing - I will look on google maps at my destination and search for pharmacies and see if they have a website and what they offer. In Santo Domingo there is a chain of pharmacies called "Farmacia Carol" and they offer Tena slip and some other brands in their online shop. http://farmaciacarol.com/
  4. When I go on vacation I pack my diapers in a soft-sided duffle bag that collapses down to solve the problem of the empty suitcase on the return flight. I also assume I will be able to buy at least cheap pull-ups wherever I go. These are good for to-and-from the beach when you don't need much protection. Finally, I will look and see if there is a website for a big diaper brand (i.e. Tena) available at the country I will be traveling to. In this case Tena does have a DR website; http://www.tena.com.co/Dominicana/ I would advise you to write them and ask them about their availability. In some countries Tena actually has an online shop. Otherwise, as someone else said, if the suitcase is medical supplies you might be exempt from the extra bag fee.
  5. I fly pretty frequently and have my bag checked probably 50% of the time as something must have been picked up on the x-ray. I'm not going to say it doesn't make me a little bit embarrassed but they check the bag and then I'm on my way with nothing being said.
  6. 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.
  7. 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/
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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").
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
