Not again! So recently I get a pack of Flufsan nappies via Amazon UK (Flufsan's are a brand I've reviewed previously - simple Google search 'flufsans adisc' and my review's the 'top of the (result) pile'), I used them one or twice before in the past but haven't had them for about a year maybe two but anyway...they arrive and I open them and I'm expecting them to be plastic-backed 'coz they were last time and a product change would really surprise me and...BAM! Cloth-backed! I could scream! I mean I've just got over a disappointing bought-via-the-intanet run-in with some Molicares and I don't need this. The Molicares had changed without warning (OK without warning for me...their change has been talked about previously on this site tho I didn't find said discussions!) and now so had the Flufsans, 2 make things all the more desperation-inducing the packaging of the recent Molicares said they'd gone premium and air but no packaging change with the Flufsan's - infact after opening I read every bit of English I could find on the packaging and it (basically) said they were still plastic-backed...nuh uh, they were as many miles from plastic-backed as you can be.
It's ridiculous - I ended up replacing unexpected cloth-backed nappies...with unexpected cloth-backed nappies! Aaaaaah!
So this is my worry. Are all adult brands (normal adult brands - see later in the post) going cloth-backed? I don't think I could take that (!!), all the baby nappies went cloth-backed at the start of the millennium and that was difficult then. We've now lost (possibly in order): Suprem Lille's, Tena's, Molicare's and Flufsan's (trumpet salute the fallen at this point if you wish) and it's been confirmed we're on track to lose classic Abena M4's (how dare they!). This leaves us with: (UK) Boots Pharmacie's (Attends rip-offs) Stay-dry Slips (which hav stayed plastic despite feather logos - make note of that and enjoy that point as a positive!), Soffisofs (really bad - avoid avoid avoid!), Lille Classics, Aidapts, iD Experts and UK Attends.
(USA) Depends, USA Attends inclueding Waistbands, XP Medical's, Tranqility's, Comficare's, Wellness-es and Dry 24/7's
(Other Countries) Seni's (ugh, do not like these), Vlesia's (not much of an imprvmnt on the Seni's), Dr Kang's, Kolibri's and BeeSana's (hear these are good and sooooooo yellow!)
But what's (what brand's) gonna go next? I don't know and it's very difficult to find out - at least that's how I feel 'bout all this.
if you wer thinkin I've forgotten something I haven't - ther are of cours all the brands made for us DLABs and the companys behind those nappies are going to rake it in if normal briefs for genuine users (incontinence...duh!) all change for...(speaking as a DL) the worst. Thank goodness for Cuddlz, BKN's, Snuggies, Fabines, Awww So Cute's, Mydiaper's and every diaper from the Bambino back-catolog!
So we've lost another of the gooduns (read my revu - I won't shpool here), and if you've any lamentations, similar fears, news-bites or thoughts...please don't hesitate to type something! bringmesunshine
