I have to say the diaper market in the USA is expensive with low quality. I don't see how a lot of you internatonal folks envy the US market. Even if adult diapers are more readily available here in the states, it still doesn't matter. The United States is full of cheap quality products. Depend, Medline, Prevail, First Quality, Kendall, are all cheaply made and are only made based on business needs, not a consumers need. I feel sorry for those incontinent people that are stuck with all of the supplies in this country. I've tried plenty of different brands of diapers. They all feel like a sheet of paper wrapped around you. They are all flimsy and require people to be changed quite often. The average cost for a pack of Depend is $15.00usd. Comes in 16 per pack. So its almost a $1.00usd per diaper. It's rather expensive as thin as they are and as little it absorbs, you will go through 4-6 diapers a day at least while on a normal diet. Some people have light incontinence and some have complete incontinence. While Depend calls there diaper "Maximum absorbancy" They hold less then Goodnites which is made by the same company. The cost of Depends gets high about $5.00 bucks a day $35.00 bucks a week $140.00 bucks a month... Compared to Abena X-Plus...You go through 3 changes a day. That costs about $1.10 per diaper. $3.30 a day, $22.10 per week, $88.40 per month. Yes we have Bambino/Secure X-plus but what non AB/DL would wear something with "Baby" written all over it. Also Abena and Tena are a way better are easily found in stores across Europe. I feel bad that Incontinent Americans are being treated like they are. Just so they can make a boatload more money. They make $5.00 bucks muliplied by the millions that use it every day!
Now I plead my case about it and would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this issue.
