Thread: ComfiCare is now BetterDry

  1. #1

    Default ComfiCare is now BetterDry



    It was sad to see another great diaper be discontinue. I hope the new diaper will be better. They are getting rid of the landing zone. They are also adding major changes to the diaper. I never had problems with this diaper. One of the best diapers ever.

    I like the sound of bigger diapers, the M size fit me but was awkward and L was a bit too spacious. Still, it was my favourite diaper!!! I love them, and I hope this one will be as good ;__; ..or better?

    I'm really wondering what company it might be to produce the BetterDrys... there are not that many options left when it comes to plastic backed thick diapers and none of them are really perfect. Seni, Ontex (Euron), Igefa (Kolibri), id, and Abena (or what's left of the plastic backed XPlus) come to mind. Let's just hope they deliver better products due to the contract than they would on their own... My bet is on id, because the overall shape and feel of the Expert Slip Super is quite similar to the Comficares, however they are nowhere near as bulky between the legs and I have no idea how the plan to compensate for that, if at all.

    Apropos the trademark issues: As far as I know there has been an American diaper brand a long time ago which was called Comficare. I don't know whether they actually sold any diapers called Comficare, but name is still protected.

    Maybe I'm crazy but is anyone else confused what they mean by removing the landing zone and adding double tapes? At least how I look at them today there doesn't appear to be a landing zone and they already have double tapes in both the blue/white pairing and the fact there's two of them.

    There is a landing zone, it is made from even harder plastic than the outer layer ! It's just super transparent.
    Maybe what they mean with double tapes is "two chance tapes" The ones with the blue under layer, and the white tape on top so that you get another chance at fastening the tapes.
    Those are my guesses.

    I'm kinda bummed for those changes though. I really loved how I could take them off as many times as I just wanted to with the good tapes in the front and the very good landing zone.. I will try BetterDrys though. I hope they are as good since they are replacing my favourite diapers

    Hi all,

    As many of you I am really surprised by the announcement made by the company. I certainly love the Comficare diapers, and I hope the new ones are going to be better then the original ones. Can someone clarify if the new BetterDry is gonna be wider in the crotch area? In the video, the company director explained that there will be a modification in the diaper dimensions, increasing the length by a certain number of inches. However, I don't quite understand what he says about the cortch area. Is it going to be increased or not? My apologies for this simple question... English is not my mother tongue...! Thanks to all!

    Basically, the shape of the diaper is determined by the shape of the tool (which is some sort of press). There are some things you can do, like changing the amount of pulp or SAP, use plastic or clothstyle backing, move around the tapes etc, all within certain limits. To change the overall shape however, you have to make a new tool, which is quite expensive. I guess, back in the day, ThrustVector approached the Chinese producers like 'We want a diaper of this and that shape, you build the factory line and we let you produce standard diapers for the Chinese market'. So the Chinese made the tool and the Germans ordered what they needed.

    Now with ThrustVector switching to a European producer, they, of course, can't use the Chinese tools anymore and they have to adapt to a different process, that is to a different diaper shape. It's not really that they wanted to create a new diaper, they had to. And as long as they don't make a new tool (which obviously they don't, either because it's too expensive or the new producers aren't interested in such an enterprise), the new BetterDry is going to be very similar to other diapers we already know. They can, of course, modify certain things, but it certainly isn't going to be wider in the crotch area, because the ComfiCare is already roughly 2in/5cm wider than the average European diaper, and for that kind of change a new tool is required.

    Just in case someone is wondering where I got this information: A couple of years back when the Fabine was introduced, there has been a huge discussion on a German forum and at some point, ABTischler, the creator of the Fabine, himself joined the conversation and explained how diapers are made and what it means to produce in China.

    Hi Astatine,

    Thank you for your answer and detailed explanation! I understand that, because of the fact that they are moving their production to Europe the resulting new diaper is likely to be quite similar to the existing diapers on that market. However, my question about the dimensions in the crotch area and a possible modification on it comes from the video posted on this thread. If you have the chance to review it, please, note that the Director makes explicit reference to a modification in the dimensions of the diaper, both on the length and crotch area. What I would like to know -since as the English not being my mother tongue I might have been misunderstanding something about what he says- is if the crotch area will be increased or not. In other words, if the new BetterDry diaper will be wider in between the legs or not. Hope this clarifies a little bit. I'll be waiting for your comments. Thanks!
