Looking to expiriment with cloth diapers & everyday wear again

7 posts in this topic

You know how you once did something, place it in a bag or box and put it away, only to find it years later? That's exactly whats happened here. Diapering is something I was drawn to many years ago, but really haven't done anything related to it in quite sometime. I am looking to "experiment" with this again and figured if I gave it an honest try, perhaps for a week or more, I can see if its something I'd like to do again.

Pictured are the cloth pull up diapers I have. I don't know where I got them from as its been MANY years, but they have been washed previously and fit nicely. I also have plastic pants to go over them. I'd like to wear them daily and use them except for deification. A few questions:

1) Are these good cloth diapers to do this with? I have used ones you pin before, but not quite sure that would be the best for me right now.

2) Do I have to change the diaper right away after I pee? If not, how long can it be worn for? Can I wet it multiple times before changing them?

3) How do I "store" the soiled cloth diapers? I do have a washer/dryer but its a shared system, so I don't want to leave them in the laundry room, and I don't want to be washing them everyday per say (at least in the long run, as im trying to keep this private).

I believe those are the main questions I have. I will be wearing these to work, at home, out shopping... think everyday, normal week type of stuff here. I want to give this a good honest try to see if now that I am a bit older, I may really be interested in this!

Why don't you try them and find out for yourself?

Nope, but like with all diapers it depends on how much pee and stuff you put into them eventually there gonna not take no more

You mean pooped ones?

Why not get disposables? with those you don't have to go through the hassle of washing them or drying them or hiding dirty old ones until you got the all clear to put them in the washer.

Classic;  This looks exactly like a Pull-on Cotton Adult Cloth Diaper #20700 from BABYKINS.COM .  I wear one every night. They are really great for protecting the bed. They will hold a LOT of urine. You must wear a diaper cover, but cooler than disposables in the summer heat.

I am not a fan of disposables, as its money wasted and I am not a fan of the environmental aspect. When I said "soiled" I meant ones with urine as I mentioned I dont plan to defecate in them.

Edd53: What do you wear during the day? I've also slept in this pull on for 2 nights. It's very comfy, just haven't "used" them yet.

Disposible diapers feel lousy. You do not even know you have one on and you have to fight with tapes  and they are far more prone to failure thant cloth. I have some but do not use them as an LG, only when I will be busy for 6-8 hours and do not wish to take a break

Pull-ups have another problem, You must take everything off to change them unless you wear a dress/skirt and snap-on rubber panties. The high waist and short skirt are what put the "baby" in "babydoll". If you wear two panties then you still must take something all the way off to change and I do not know if they make them to go as long between changes as regular diapers can, I routinely go about 10 hours. The shortest time I have gone is 8 and the longest is 16i without trying

Sadly I'm not a girl and cant wear high waisted skirts, but do admire women that do!

I did try disposables YEARS ago when I first tested out this fetish with a female partner. I liked the feel but if you needed to retape it was a pain, and it was pretty wasteful. Plus I am on the "frugal" side, and cloth might be more up front, but pays itself off in the long run.

I did, too, 37 years ago and they felt small and thin. And this was before the heavy use of SAP, which means smaller and thinner. Also, I was not diapered as a baby, but like a little girl when I was 7, 8 and 9 and with cloth diapers. Dresses and skirts can acommodate quite a bit of thickness. You know there is something there. You might go to the diaper section of my revies and the forum on cloth diaper cleaning. I have some material there. As for wasteful. The predominance of throw-aways as the main diaper was from the age of prosperity when the baby-boomers were too rich and spent like drunken sailors,much to the chagrin of their parents. We are not that prosperous any more and we do not have the landfill room any more, mostly due to NIMBY and the fact that we do not burn trash like we used to. Now, what was common knowledge 55 years ago has to be relearend. Also the early Pampers were rinsed out in the toilet befroe throwing away. What is done now is horrendous.  What would be properly considered Red Bag material is mixed in with other things. It may come to a time when disposables are restricted to medical installation. If you go to my Rubber Panty Hall of Fame in my About me, disposables have been around in one form or other for over 70 years. There is a reason they were not the "front line" and were mostly for travelling and special use; very secondary applications. They are very efficient and "high performance". So is a Novi race engine. But you wont find that engine in your car or even a high-performance street rod. and there comes a point beyond which more efficiency is so over-engineered that it does not justify what it costs in time, money and auxiliary facilities and actions and that you have to get everything nearly 100% right 100% of the time, I have never heard of cloth diaper "blowout" or clumping or embarrassing something or other because you believed the claims that you did not need rubber panties with the things. I had a RI State Home Ec social workder tell me specifically that same things I've said, back in '88 about how costly they are and what happens with no rubber panties. The thing was, she was giving examples of wastefulness and that was the topic she chose on her own initiative
