So this past weekend, I went camping with my folks for the first time in this 2013 camping season. The campground we stayed at is very remote up in some mountains/tall hills, and this weekend was the first weekend where it was open, so we were actually the only ones in the entire campground.
Now, usually I'm not reckless with diapers, but for whatever reason I brought along a few hidden in a backpack, on the off chance that there might be an opportunity to get one on while we were out camping.
Yesterday, both of my parents left for a long trip to a boat upholstery repair place, I came up with some cheesy excuse to stay behind. The result was having the entire campsite all to myself for at least five hours! Or at least so I thought...
To make a long story short-ish, my parents got back earlier than I had been expecting, and I got stuck wearing a bambino teddy, of all things, for the rest of the night.
I probably would have been alright, except for the fact that for some reason I drank a boatload of water yesterday, WAY more than usual. I spent hours that night looking for an opportunity to sneak off somewhere and get the diaper off before bed, but thanks to the pretty small size of our camper, I wasn't able to escape and had to go to bed still wearing it...
I think last night was the first time where I ended up 'having' to actually go in a diaper without having the option of bailing, and going normally. Our camper has a toilet, but I know for a fact that attempting to use it in the middle of the night while also having to stealthily get a diaper off would not have worked with my parents sleeping five feet away.
After last night, I realized I've never been in a situation where I had to use a diaper while potential leaks could truly be problematic. Leaks at home, while alone in my room would obviously be lame...but that's nothing compared to what would have happen if there were leaks last night.
This got me thinking, is there anywhere that lists actual proven capacities of diapers? I was so nervous about leaks last night I ended up trying to pee 'strategically' at 3AM -_-'. I wouldn't wish a night like that on anyone, sheesh..
