I've seen a few "reviews" of the new Unique Wellness Superio diaper around the web; most seem more like advertisements than independent reviews by users. (Manufacturers do that, you know). Others seemed to be based on small experience. I'm wondering what incon people think of them now that they've had a chance to use them for awhile?
Here's my experience in a nutshell.
Pluses: They really fixed the leaking pinhole problem. The tapes are fine too. Pretty discrete. In spite of some reports, I don't have trouble with clumping filler, nor do they swell excessively. Absorbency is better than cheap brands. If you buy on the 20% off sale with free shipping, they are quite reasonably priced for a quality diaper.
Minuses: They absorb slower than the best briefs, and this can cause leaks. Usually I leak a little at a time. But sometimes its a lot all at once, and that can be a problem. But whether fast or slow, I feel wet, right away and all the time. So they are a bit hard on my skin. I use a lot of diaper rash cream with these diapers, which partially offsets the cheaper price. The eight-hour claim is still, in my opinion, an exaggeration. Sure, if you don't drink much, never have a "flood," and stand rather than sit or lie down, you might make eight hours. But they are going to feel bad, and probably seep around the edges.
I tried them at night. I've learned to wear a cloth diaper and plastic pants over a new disposable the first few times at night. Good thing I did. Then I tried again. These can't make it through the night for me.
Finally, after getting a bad batch of the old ones, I would say that you should expect neither satisfaction nor courtesy if you contact UW's customer service.
All in all, for me, UW briefs are definitely better than store brands, they are definitely cheaper than the most expensive brands, but they are still a compromise.
If you've used them for awhile, what's your experience? And have you found something better for incontinence?
