You know, like everyone else in here, I too have my wishes for diaper companies to grant me - and like a good deal of us, they are not all that realistic.
However, one thing that has been making my mind burn with ideas is how obvious it is that the modern diaper DOES need improving. Real improving. If they didn't, then they would never leak, (under normal use) always fit right, and work 100%.
But we all know that is not the case. Just ask a side sleeper, or in a lot of cases any guy that has a habit of his anatomy creeping up, or to far to one side etc.
Do you think there is any way we could use each other as a large-scale test/marketing group to come up with the ultimate answer? Something that surely we can put together and sell, or get someone like Abena or Tena etc to notice and say "Hey! Why didn't we think of that?"
The trick would be keeping it realistic. I have given much thought to this and have come up with a few items.
They have standing leak guards, but what about adding one in a horseshoe shape across the top? I think this could help some of the guy issues.
The sides on taped diapers have no padding, maybe adding some could help side sleepers?
Maybe putting an elastic down the middle front to back would help keep it snug?
Maybe making a cross tape system where top goes to bottom and bottom to top might help with keeping snug?
Or maybe a diaper add on - I was thinking something like a gaft panty but something you wear where liquid goes out but not back and will keep everything (on a guy) snug and in place to channel the liquid?
Any one else have anything that would majorly improve the function? Remember this is actual improvements - not the fantasy like size 13 huggies or padding the size of a pillow etc. Even tho, that would be awesome
