    Have you ever pooped in public?

    I do, maybe 3-4 times a week on average. Public in this case meaning out of my own home, but not in anybody's immediate presence. In some of the places I spend a lot of time, such as the less crowded of my work areas with lots of outdoor space, I have favourite routes to suitable restrooms and...

    Best way to wash plastic pants?

    I wear PVC because I prefer the look and feel, but they are not very resistant to damage during cleaning. Suprima recommend a hot wash, but I make it a short one with a light load so they don't get mauled by larger, heavier items. Liquid detergent is recommended, and fabric softeners forbidden...

    Making a big mess

    I played around with this a while back but never found a reliable formula. At first I just tried eating more fibre, then discovered that soluble and insoluble fibre have different effects, and eating too much can have a reverse effect. Then there was the aspect of consistency, because firm waste...

    Was anyone “allowed” to use their nappies on purpose as a child?

    I have no memories of wearing nappies first time around and very much doubt I would have been allowed to use mine for convenience, but I think this idea is pretty central to many DL desires including mine. It is a validation of what we like and what we do, not just from within the DL community...

    NASA Astronaut on peeing in space

    There seems to be a slight inaccuracy in there. The nappies worn by the first women in space, starting in 1983 were not MAGs but DACTs; Disposable Absorbent Containment Trunks. They were intricate, bloomer-like undergarments with velcro fastening at the waist and leg cuffs, tailored to each...

    ABU Lavender

    I noticed this and actually thought it was a positive feature for a particular reason. Sanitary pads are are everyday items that older girls and women wear as part of ordinary life. Not for fun, not for a medical condition, not because they have a specific interest in the product; it's just...

    1st expedition outside

    Great times ahead! Not everyone manages to break through that invisible barrier without tripping up or turning back. Now it's a much smaller step to get comfortable with going out and enjoying all you normal stuff with nice thick padding under your clothes. I remember all the steps on that...

    ABU Lavender

    I'm not really into designs on nappies but these were an exception, and I used to choose them when I wanted to look or feel extra girly. Is there anything out there that has a teen / older feminine styling that would replace them?

    Going out

    I know a lot of people enjoy extreme bulk and that's fine, but personally I find it feels less like a nappy once over a certain thickness, more like a restraint device. Adding further layers makes it less enjoyable and certainly less practical, so I never go beyond double and that only...

    Uh oh...

    I'm not sure why you didn't take your nappy off in the bedroom and then go and do the poo in the toilet, but I guess doing it while your mum is in the bath is not ideal anyway. Doing a wee together is one thing, but making the bathroom smelly is not so polite. I do sometimes want to go in my...

    First mess

    Great to hear you are enjoying your new experience. Isn't it just the most satisfying way to empty your bowels? Don't worry if your first clean-up seems a bit of a chore, it gets much easier and quicker with practice. I've had three dirty nappies today (after breakfast, in the carpark at the...

    Diapers With Short Leg Cuffs

    Tena Slip Active fit have quite short leg cuffs for a reasonably absorbent nappy. But they also have short leak guards, so if you do a big load that can be seen through the leg openings, you're at risk of a messy leak e.g. if you sit down. Another aspect you could look for is a narrow crotch...

    Do you poop your diaper purposely?

    Nappies are all about comfort and convenience and I've usually got one on, so when I need to do a poo I can usually choose to do it in the nappy or toilet, whichever is more convenient and appropriate at the time. Probably 75% of the time, I go in my nappy there and then, but I don't have any...

    Regular & 24/7 wearers: How often do you leak?

    Wearing plastic pants does change the sensations associated with wetness but I don't find that they make it harder to detect leaks or judge remaining capacity. They do provide an extra safety margin between sensing that something is wrong or a leak is imminent, and actually having wet clothes...

    Regular & 24/7 wearers: How often do you leak?

    True, there's too much at stake to be worth saving the odd buck here and there by postponing a change. I change when it's convenient for me and sensible based on my expected usage, not when the nappy demands it. Also, logically, a completely soaked nappy can't be used, and the point of wearing a...
