All of my family left on vacation for a week, leaving me behind on my own (which is pretty much its own vacation because the house is actually quiet for a change). Last time I had a week alone I had to settle for buying depends fitted, which I picked up on my way home from dropping everyone off at the airport (I was not only nervous as hell, but the cashier didnít bag them either so I ended up carrying the pack in the open through the parking lot). However, this time around I did some searching online beforehand and found a medical supply store nearby that seemed to carry molicare.
I dropped everyone off at the airport late last night, and managed to pick up a pack of medium molicare super plus this morning, with the plan of going 24/7 for as long as I can. With the medical supply store being small and not seeming to have much business at the time, the salesguy on the floor didnít have much else to do and was pretty insistent on being helpful. To make a long story short (I can provide the long version if people are interested), I ended up buying a 14 pack of medium molicare super plusís (for $32 ), the entire time conversing with the salesguy and doing my best to not feel awkward (I think I did pretty good, the trick is to remember that awkwardness brings on more awkwardness)
So now a few questions:
1) For the depends, I found that they leaked like crazy until I developed a decent taping scheme. However, Iíve noticed that the molicares I just bought only have two tapes. Is there a ďcorrectĒ way to tape the molicares to prevent leaks, or is that just an issue specific to depends?
2) Upon getting home with the goods, I found myself measuring and recording the dimensions of the pack, dimensions of the diaper (folded and unfolded), weight empty, and weight full after using it to the point it needed changing (after putting it in a plastic bag ofc). Has anyone else done this before, or am I just weird?
