Thanks first for the input from several of your that finally prompted me to try a high quality AB diaper. I bought some Bambino Bellissimo's and simply LOVE them. The fit is great, they look amazing and well all in all - make me feel so babyish! I also ordered some of the high capacity stuffers, as I love the added bulk and the way I am forced to waddle (again, just helps me feel babyish).
Anyway, I have read tests on here as to how much they will hold and while I am in fact a scientist - for some reason the quantitative data just isn't the same as "just knowing".
So after getting to spend Sunday afternoon and evening (watching the Super Bowl) in my diaper and footie pj's and absolutely soaking it - I took the opportunity to work from home today, and more importantly, spend the day diapered.
I just yesterday received a Batman romper that I had ordered, so I dressed myself (I'm sort of a big boy, huh?) in a Bellissimo, my Batman romper, and a pair of white Keds that I painted. I had to stop after about 5 hours and put on a diaper cover as the Bambino was getting quite heavy and felt like it might come apart (from the weight). After a little over another hour, with my legs really spread apart from the added bulk of the swelling diaper, I finally noticed that the diapee was leaking. Awwwwwwwww
I went to change and decided that it was probably time to really put on my big boy clothes, but not before I weighed the wet diaper - 3.6 pounds.
So now I know.
