So, I don't post here a lot. I prefer to read posts on the Diaper Talk part of the board about once a week, because it's a nice reminder that there are other DLs out there.
Starting in about a month, I'm going to be living in a townhouse with some friends and will effectively have my own space to hang out padded with nobody to barge in at random times. For the first time in my life I'll be able to wear whenever I want while also being able to order online without fear of nosy family members.
So, here's my dilemma. I've sampled high-capacity diapers like the Tena Slip Maxi, the Abena M4, and Molicare Super Plus. I've tried store brand (CVS) cloth-backed and hate them, but have had a lot of sucess with Depend Protection with Tabs. The high-end diapers are great, but I'm a very light wetter and could never possibly use one of those to capacity. Hell, I've never had a leak wearing Depend plastic-baked overnight.
I want to upgrade in absorbency however, so I'm looking for a mid-absorbency diaper that's plastic-backed, AND MUST have leak guards. I wear medium, so no worries there.
My top two choices are the Tena Slip Basic (effectively Tena Slip Super) and Tranquility's ATN. I'd love to try the Tena Slip Basic as I loved the swelling of the Maxis when I tried them, but haven't been able to find a real review of them. If anyone has tried these, please chime in with your opinions. If you have another suggestion, also feel free to add that. Anything that's ~1 dollar a diaper and absorbs fairly well is fair game (USA available). Anything that swells a lot when wet is a huge bonus.
Thanks, guys, you're fabulous!
