Okay, so all of last week, my parents and my sister left the house to go on spring-break vacation, while I had to stay because I have college classes I couldn't miss. Not a problem with me, though. Because I got to pad up the entire time they were gone! I don't think I used the potty at home once that whole week. (Oh shit did I just call it the "potty"? I might be slowly turning into a babyfur. xP)
Though with a whole week of experience with Bambinos, and for the second half, ABU Cushies (the cloth-like ones, which are AWESOME), I'm going to have to speak out on this:
Wetting Bambino's to their full capacity is certainly fun, though every once in a while. I mean, it's cool that they can hold like, 8 wettings and all, but I personally don't like having to spend hours at a time in a wet diaper.
Sure, I could just change after the second wetting, but by doing that I feel like I've wasted 3/4th's of a diaper because I didn't use it to it's fullest. It drives me even more insane with messing, because I really, REALLY don't like spending hours at a time in a messy diaper (which I also believe is unhealthy), and it's really frustrating having to hold it until I'm "wet enough".
So, while Bambino continues to make the amazingly absorbent and thick diapers that everyone loves with cute prints, what they should do is put out "budget" versions of their diapers that have the same cute printings on the tape, but nowhere near as absorbent as their flagship line and cost less.
This is what I liked about the Cushies: much easier to use to their fullest, and could I change usually after one wetting, occasionally a second wetting. Only problem is that they cost more than Bambinos, and are actually less of a diaper (though they're designs are way cuter).
I mean, sure there's the cheaper brands like Tena, Depend, etc. that are designed to be changed within a short period of time, but they all either look like they belong on an old senile person or in a mental hospital, they're not cute and juvenile like Bambinos are.
Who else agrees with me? If Bambino actually were to make less expensive though somewhat less-absorbant diapers with the same cute prints, would you buy them?
I should also add that they'd be much easier on the wallet. That way you don't have to pay as high of a price to have a cute diaper.
