Alright, I guess I'll just cut to the chase. I'm really interested in trying some new diapers, and a brand that I have recently become very interested in is Abena.
What really piqued my interest was the M4 , and it seems to have a pretty big following in the AB/DL community. I have a few questions though.
1) about how big is a case of Abena diapers? I'm planning on ordering a full case (42 diapers) from Agecomfort.com , as it qualifies me for free shipping in Canada. With a promo code I can get the diapers shipped to my door for $60 taxes in.
I'm going to be getting a P.o box at the local post office which is about a 3 or 4 minute walk from my house, and I'll be carrying the box back here (Don't have a car at the moment..).
2) I'm usually a cloth-backed guy, but have worn plastic backed before. I find that the plastic-backed diapers are more absorbant, but they don't really breathe as well as I'd like. Is this the case with Abena diapers? When I wear depends I sweat like crazy if I'm either bit warm.
3) Are they really "that" thick? I plan on using these as everyday diapers and was wondering if they are really as bulky as everyone says. I don't mind wearing bulky diapers under my clothes, but if they make it very difficult to walk, I'll probably have to find a way around that.
4) Agecomfort.com also stocks molicare diapers and I've heard a lot of talk about those too. Are they the same quality as Abena?
Sorry for these questions. I know some have been beaten to death, but I really want some specific answers. I'll be ordering these after Christmas as far as I know.
