Somehow, I ended up with an Abena S4. My aim was to get some M4 samples but apparently I ordered the wrong things :P
Anyway, I decided I'd try out the diaper that came anyway so here's my review type thing
The first thing I noticed was cloth backed. I've heard a lot of bad things about cloth backed and to be honest I'm not entirely sure why. Cloth backed made me feel so much better! I didn't sweat, I didn't feel claustrophobic. In fact, I felt incredibly comfortable! When I wear plastic backed diapers I just feel like a grown man wearing diapers yet when I wore these I felt so much younger and happier.
However, I thought I had leaked a ton of times. Cloth backed diapers seem to feel a little moist on the outside after wetting. I was about ready to hop on here and give them a horrible review but then I realised I hadn't leaked and my clothes weren't wet. It's strange how they made me think I had leaked but they were perfectly fine.
Talking about leaking and absorbency etc I'd say these diapers have a good absorbency. Not up to par with some other products though. For example the other diapers I use regularly are Cuddlz UK and they last a lot longer than these.
But having said that, they lasted me about 4 hours with 3/4 of a litre of irn bru diet in me which certainly makes you pee. Perhaps they would have lasted longer if I hadn't drunk so excessively :P
Tapes. One day, I will find a diaper with tapes that don't come undone. The tapes were fine but then the top right one came undone. It took a couple of layers of duct tape wrapped round a few times to keep it down.
These diapers sag, a lot. It actually feels pretty great. The cloth backed feel with the amount of sag was very enjoyable.
Unfortunately like a lot of diapers, the padding clumps
And that's pretty much it. Sorry if my review has been useless I just wanted to write about my experiences.
I'm an official cloth backed convert now On that subject, why do some of you guys and girls hate cloth backed so much?
