    Funny how parents ask their kids while toilet training...

    "Do you want to grow up and still be wearing diapers?", but they never listen to the answer. People on this list have a rich variety of motivations, some that even they themselves are not fully aware of. But it strikes me that one motivation is to finally be able to choose, from day to day, how...

    How did we get so uptight? (Glycerin Suppositories)

    RE: The closing of Glycerin-Suppositories-Help! (Apologies ahead of time for my somewhat testy tone. It isn't entirely intentional.) While I appreciate your concern for the org and I understand your rationale, I'm disappointed that we have gotten so worried that we can't maintain a...

    Much improved onesie from ACD

    I just got a new onesie from AdultClothDiaper that is very much improved. In all of the ones I've found before the snaps have been the weak spot. No matter how careful I am, the eventually pull out of the cloth. In some they weren't even set properly in the hem. This one has them set in a...

    Therapists' attitudes---Experiences?

    I'm interested in the experiences those among us have had with therapists. Therapy comes up repeatedly in these forums, but I'd be interested in trying to get a sense of how therapists have viewed AB/DL in actual practice. To be clear: I'm not looking for therapy for DL and I would not...

    For those anticipating popular adoption of diapers

    This is a Zippy comic from last June that just showed up in Funny Times. (You should check out F.T.) Zippy is a bit offensive to some. But the strip is about infantilization of the American Male seen in a good light. (Zippy is the source of wisdom in this strip. Griffy is the superego.)...

    Suggestion Forum FAQs

    <update> Having just read to the bottom of the "Before you post" (ahem), I realize I should have posted this first to Requests. I will make a post there referring to this. Meanwhile feel free to either move this, cancel it or close it. <end-O-update> The "related threads" didn't show anything...

    On lucid dreaming

    This seems to be a cicada thread. But the previous generations are closed and there has been some recent discussion in the DL forum (my fault), so I thought I would bring it back again to collect them. This started with a side comment of mine. I've seen a lot of advice about how to do...

    NiceDiaper (.com) experience

    Thought I would add one more reference point to the NiceDiaper.com comments. I ordered two pairs of (different) PUL pants from them back at the end of June. It's very hard to get a clear idea of what these would be like from their website, but given that they were both supposed to be highbacks...

    Stylish IC products---Tena's new ads

    There's an article in today's NYTimes about Tena's new ad campaign for their IS pads. (It's a long url and might not survive posting) Rather than categorize them by absorbancy, they are categorizing them as "stylish", "active" and "anywhere". They believe that the parallels between...

    High-back PU (not PUL) pants

    There's been some discussion of (the lack of) high-back PUL pants and I've been searching around. I still haven't found any, but fetware sells a high-back version of their ultraflex polyurethane pants http://http://www.fetware.com/ultraflex-polyureathane-back-pants-p-31.html. These don't...

    Brolly sheets mattress protection

    We get quite a few "OMG this is the best product ever" posts. This is mine. In this post dondl2 mentioned Brolly Sheets sheet protectors. I did a quick web search and bought one. (Less than 40$US.) This is a PUL backed quilted cotton pad that fits across the bed on top of the sheet with...

    RE: How much does your diaper hold

    RE: How much does your diaper hold So there are lots of threads about how much various diapers hold as well as some pretty thorough research based on pouring liquid into diapers a various rates, etc., which I suppose is the way the manufacturers estimate this. It crossed my mind this morning...

    Emergency preparedness

    So I am in the area that is being pummeled by Sandy and my cellar has begun to fill with water. Which means anything flushed down the toilet ends up in the cellar. (If it gets bad enough, ultimately the street.) Fortunately, I find myself uniquely prepared for just such an eventuality: 24/7...

    Novel cloth double diapering

    Perhaps everyone who cares has seen this. Perhaps no one has the same difficulties as I do. But, FWIW, I've been experimenting with approaches to doubling up my cloth diapers and thought I'd share. My difficulty is that, even with two layers or even two layers and an insert or two, there is...

    Raised in disposables but live in cloth?

    I don't know that this merits a separate thread. Preferences for cloth/disposable is a perennial topic here, most recently in https://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-talk/54104-what-cloth-diapers.html. Dogboy, in...

    When did you recognize you were DL

    There have been some posts lately in which people mention becoming DL when they were older or being in denial for years (see Babykk44 https://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-talk/53255-no-longer-ashamed.html). A lot of the posters in these forums are TB/DL and seem to have known they were DL most...

    onsies and places to get cloth diapers

    As Fantasticmax2 notes in another thread https://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-talk/53208-what-good-web-site-get-cloth-diapers.htm a lot of the on-line cloth diaper suppliers seem to carry the same products. Indeed adultclothdiaper.com The AdultClothDiaper.Com actually charges to...

    introduction

    If I may introduce myself. I'm an older married male who seems to have found himself in diapers, first because it seemed possible, then because it seemed irresistable. For work reasons my wife and I live apart much of the time, which avoids a lot of difficult explanation. I'm interested in a...
