I just got an email response from XP Medical and according to them, Abena has committed to making the M4 Plastic backed version "For the foreseeable future". However, it appears like we're going to have to say goodbye to plastic Abena's at some point.
IF YOU HAVE USED BOTH THE ABENA X-PLUS PLASTIC AND BREATHABLE VERSIONS... what did you think of the breathable air plus? I'm thinking about buying some just to try them out. My fear is, like any cloth backed diaper I've used, they seem to "breath" moisture. Not leaks - more like vapor or humidity.
Please don't rant about loss of plastic.
