After buying some pampers baby dry six yesterday, (http://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-talk/5163-joy-world.html)
and discovering that although they fit, they're very tight, and break easily, I have now learnt that pampers active fit are indeed a better fit. Due to their stretchier sides. So now Im frustrated with myself that I didnt learn this before hand...knowing that for all my effort, I could of had better. Sorry, just a rant.

Actually, at least in America, Baby Dry run much bigger than Cruisers/Active Fit, and I think they fit better. You made the right choice..

That's why they are made for babies and not 16 year olds...

Absolutely, but baby diapers were all I had the guts to get at the time, and they're better than nothing.

You guys have got to get over this FEAR of buying adult diapers, I mean you have a diaper fetish, why not get something that works for more than 1 or 2 small wettings.

It is no different if you buy pampers or depends,(just an exampel I don't want to see anyone buy depends) they are both diapers, you might as well just buy the adult diapers.

Good Luck and go for it, you only live once.

Just suck it up and buy the adult diapers man. It will be worth it because they will actualy fit you correctly.

They sell white duct tape in the U.S. I wonder if they something like that where you are. You might be able to do some repair work and salvage them to some degree. Good luck.

Hey, at least some people can even get CLOSE to fitting in the much cuter baby diapers.

I don't have a fear of buying adult ones, but since I rarely wet them, if I could get Pampers/ UJs to fit, I would wear them.

Anyway, now you CAN have better. It's hit or miss, even with adult diapers. Sizes, tabs vs. velcro, number of tabs (if you choose tabs), how much they hold, and how comfy they are, it's all a trial.

C'est la vie. = )

THANK YOU for saying this. :worshippy:


So, yeah... the only things good about baby diapers for us big kids are their designs, and the fact that the make great inserts. But that's about it.

well i think If you are skinny enough to wear the baby diaper or pull-up in your own opinion and if there comfortable I'd say wear them. I wear pull-ups 4t5t yea they are a little tight but I like them I like to consider myelf as 3 years old. I can fit baby/toddler sized pull-ups I am going to wear them. Who cares if I dont buy the adult ones I like the baby/toddler ones and thats what I am going to wear....There is nothing wrong with adult diapers they are not my preferance. I am not gna get ad at others who wear them thats there preferance jus like baby/toddler diapers/pull-ups are mine

Guys, please remember he is a Brit. It is very difficult to get adult ones over here, and those are pretty much always pull up style, and to be honest they all suck. He saw an opportunity and he took it. He didn't exactly have much time to plan it out. Most people can get over the fear of it if they time to think it through - he didn't. It was an impulse!

Yes, we don't necessarily get baby diapers because they look cute in all. Given the option. I would pick something that will fit me. Bah, I had to live off Tesco Value stuff when i was younger. I didn't have much money I could spend without raising any questions or anything.

I am surprised how even the cheap nasty adult diapers are still very easy to get hold of in the USA.

The problem is, it's mostly the cheap, nasty adult diapers that are readily available. The nice ones are much less easily obtained. Still, we must count our blessings that we have any available at all.

Because, as has already been said by me and others, in the UK they are incredibly difficult to find. One shop sells them. If one of those isn't near - no chance. Even then, the ones they sell are rubbish. They sell one tape up one - which is one size fits all (52" waist). If he can fit in baby diapers, even tightly, he shouldn't bother with those. They WILL NOT be tight enough. The others are adult pull ups. From my experience, these also suck. Just because it is possible for you to get adult diapers in the shops, it doesn't mean he can.

Hmmm...apologies for starting a debate. I didnt get adult diapers becuase I was quite close to home, and basically was too paranoid about it, but I think that's fair enough, considering it was my first time buying diapers. And yes, adult diapers are hard to get hold of in the UK, I doubt they would have had them in any shop where I was near....next time though...ill go for something better. :)

... You don't have a single department store that sells adult diapers in one of the most prospering and oldest countries on the entire planet... I find that very hard to believe. I mean, he can squeeze into a baby diaper but it is definitely not going to absorb much or hold much of anything in that manner. I'm not criticizing I'm merely remarking on the paradox that adult diapers are generally easily attainable in any over the counter pharmacy and work much better on teenagers than baby diapers and so why would you even bother with the baby diapers, the price difference is minuscule. Sorry if I offended anyone, was not my intention.

Something is better then nothing?

Sorry it didn't work out for you.

If you want some good online references, I'm willing to help out, and I'm sure plenty of others are as well.

Try to be supportive guys =\

Yes, it is hard to believe. But for diaper companies it wouldn't be profitable because we have the NHS (National Health Service). Which means if you need them, you get them perscribed by a doctor. So the people who need the diapers get them. For you they are, but you don't get free medical treatment, do you? It's all privatised, isn't it? Ours is a state service, and as a knock on effect, most medical needs a catered for within that service. Some shops occasionally have them, but very rarely, and even more rarely that they come as tape ones. Just because you can do something in your country, doesn't mean we can in ours. If you can't find a medical supplies depot or a specialist pharmacy in your area, then it is practically impossible to find anything. You have to remember that different countries have different methods of doing things to yours. I don't say learn everything about other countries (that's impossible) but if something comes across as weird in another country, and other members from that country confirm it, there is probably a reason somewhere why that country is different to yours, as opposed to them just being wrong.
