Thread: Hot weather & Nappies

    Default Hot weather & Nappies

    Hi all, I'm just wondering if any Diaper Lovers have an issue with hot weather, to cut to the chase I hate hot weather, in my opinion it just isn't comfortable at all, yet so many people seem to love it.

    The problem is I really want to wear a Nappy as Nappies are my ultimate escape from my depression etc, it is like I really strongly need them.

    I'm just wondering if any of you get too hot whilst wearing, for some reason I am sweating so severely it is unbelievable, but I really need a nice comforting Nappy as I only get to wear 1 per day as it is and I spend all the rest of the time waiting and waiting to put one on and just feel comfy.

    I am just ranting about the horrible hot weather here guys, I guess I'll only know until I put one on tonight but the other night I had to take my Nappy off in the middle of the night and I was just gutted

    My depression is so bad lately that putting a Nappy on is only what helps me, it is like I really need the comforting feeling a Nappy gives me that I can't explain.

    So yeah, I am extremely sorry if this Thread appears as stupid and unnecessary, I am just wondering what you guys do in horrible, hot weather, do you just simply put up with the heat and enjoy the comfort of a Nappy? Or do you decide to just not wear until it is cool enough of a night time?

    I am sweating so badly but I am not severely overweight, as far as I know I am not diabetic (sweating severely is a symptom of diabetes????) I had blood tests in the past and I was not diagnosed as diabetic but to be really honest, the rate that I swear just isn't normal.

    Maybe it is because of alcohol, most likely. I drink loads of water, like too much water, my most latest discovery is that you actually need "electrolyte" drinks to hydrate the body instead of plain water.

    I don't know guys, I just really need a Nappy

    Try investing in an air conditioner, especially if this for night time issues. Even if not padded, I hate a hot room when trying to sleep. An A/C will make it better for you.

    They make a portable air conditioner that looks like a tower speaker. It has a hose with a plastic rectangle at the end. The rectangle is adjustable and goes in your window sill. The water drains through the tube and out your window. The air conditioner is relatively light and you can move it around the house. Just plug it in and vent it through a nearby window. I think they cost several hundred dollars, maybe around $250. or $300.

    My house has central air so I can wear during the day if I want, but it is more uncomfortable during the summer, especially if one goes outside. I often go bicycling in the early morning. I wear a cloth diaper and then wear my black bike shorts over the diaper. I'll wet my diaper and it doesn't show on the black shorts. The shorts are loose fitting, at least the outer shell is. The inner shell is tight. That way I can wear a diaper out in public, fly through the woods and enjoy the whole experience. When I get back, I take my shower and start me day, usually not diapered.

    You just have to find some ways that work for you. I live in Virginia and it gets darn hot in the summer, sometimes up to 100 f.

    I have one of those for the Den room window downstairs.

    Oh buddy. You should try Louisiana lol. It sucks. Especially when the mosquitoes (our state bird!) come out to play. I tend to keep my diaper wearing activities indoors basically from April to September.

    As a side note, I'm somewhat thinking of getting a summer home in Canada later in life.

    Prior to being IC I generally found that yeah, it was a lot more stressful being diapered in summer.

    Since IC, of course, I just have to deal with it.

    You also get used to it after a year or two, but only after you've been wearing 24/7.

    I moved from Michigan to Florida to get away from the extreme cold. Unfortunately that mean my blood was pretty thick and I wasn't used to the heat and humidity. The first two years I sweat horribly during the summer, but eventually my body adapted and my sweating slowed down. I no longer sweat down there unless I'm out in 100 degree weather for an hour plus.

    it's also not necessary to AC the entire house. Just get a small window unit and install in a bedroom window and close the door at night. That's what I did before I had central air.

    I had a huge AC unit in the living room and moved the other smaller one into the bedroom and turned it on. Turned the main one in the LR off and closed the door and went to bed.

    Woke up around 1am to the room FREEZING cold, had to crank the AC unit way down.

    FYI those tower units work fine for portable heat, but they have an impossible job when trying to cool, they have to dump the heat somewhere. Unlike a window unit, all they can do is dump the heat out the back. And being low efficiency like any AC unit is, they generate a lot of their own heat. So you quickly end up warming the room up. They may spot-cool a small area, but the rest of the room will get significantly warmer. It's like trying to bail out the boat by bailing the water from one end of the boat to the other, while adding a hole in the boat.

    I'm not a great fan of scorching temps either so in summer I make compromises about nappy choices. My preference both indoors and out is for plastic backed premiums, inside a support panty, with full cut waterproof pants over the top. I don't mind the bulk, I never have leak worries and the plastic pants help keep smells in when messy. As the weather warms up I abandon the plastic pants and switch to hybrid plastic / fabric-style nappies such as the iD slip, Kolibri Comslip or Tena, all of which have their pros and cons for different situations. I would not switch to a fully fabric-style nappy or any lower absorbency than these though. I change more often both due to the increased likelihood of leaks and faster ammonia formation, and sometimes pre-damp the nappy if my urine output is going to be unavoidably low and concentrated, to help keep it fresh.

    At first, having got used to the security of plastic pants and the early warning they give of leg leaks, and nothing less than a Molicare or M4 inside, doing a wee in public wearing just the hybrid was terrifying. Having gained confidence and an accurate measure of the limits of these particular nappies, I can go once or twice in close company of others without too much worry, after which it's usually time for a change anyway. Messes are noticeably smellier without the plastic pants and I dare not sit in them unless firm and not too large. A few have come very close to soiling my shorts having filled the leg gathers, but so far there have not actually been any disasters so I am happy to continue with the hybrids.

    At home, when the A/C is on, I sometimes stick with the hybrids but use a full night nappy to ensure a relaxing, worry-free sleep.
