I suppose I'll preface this by saying that I buy online as well and have two packs of
Abena X-Plus in my gun safe with the rest of my supply, but I prefer to keep other
brands on hand rather than use the same thing all the time. That and I like to be
able to walk into a store and buy something on impulse should the desire arise.
My local Wal-Mart was out of medium Assurance diapers for three weeks. I walked in
yesterday and saw one pack on the shelf and grabbed it. It wasn't until I got home
that I realized that the package said "no more sticky tapes" with dread I opened the
pack to find that they have gone to the faux cloth backing.
It is bad enough that most every store I walk into has stopped carrying "briefs" in favor
of "protective underwear" but now I have to go to medical supply stores to find diapers
with plastic backing. Almost every store brand has gone to these cloth like
abominations. I wonder when depends is going to follow suit and do away with their
line of plastic backed diapers?
I fear the day is coming that I will no longer be able to find anything but
"protective underwear." No offense to anyone who prefers adult pullups but do I not
get a chance to buy what I want anymore?
