I've run into an interesting situation with my wearing 24/7. Not a huge problem... but one I'd like some advice from y'all on.
I haven't yet begun bedwetting... infact most mornings I don't even really need to go at all until I've been up and moving for 5-10 minutes. The problem that this creates is I don't really want to "waste" my more expensive diapers on night-time use if I don't truely need them.
When I get home in the evenings I change my diaper from work when it is full then give myself an hour or two to "air out" so I don't get a rash. This means I re-diaper for the night at between 7:00 & 8:00. I am usually asleep by 11... so it's really only 3-4 hours of wakeful wearing. Not a lot of time to soak a thick diaper if I am just maintaining my normal fluid intake. This leads me to thinking that I should buy some cheaper diapers like Depends or something to wear at night until I actually start wetting.
At the same time... from what I understand of it a big part of me eventually being able to wet while in bed/asleep focuses on being very comfortable and removing mental blocks that peeing while laying down is a bad idea. That being said the few times I have been able to wet while in bed have been absolute floods from an overfull bladder and simply not getting up so I had no choice but to go in my diaper. A cheap-o diaper like Depends is simply not going to handle that and I am going to end up with wet sheets. I know this for a fact so I wonder if getting a cheaper diaper will actually hinder my progress towards a loss of control at night.
Please feel free to offer any advice or criticism you may have... b/c I seriously don't know what to do at this point.
