I'm a newbie. I've just put powder in my diaper for the first time ever, and it makes a huge difference. Goodness. Any tips/tricks/stories you have about powder?
I prefer to lay my fresh diaper on the floor in front of the cabinet, opened up on the floor, and sprinkle powder directly on my skin and rub it in a bit, with my diaper just below on the (wood) floor to catch most of the powder that falls.
I actually don't really like/need the use of powder. In particular I don't like the smell if you've peed in it - seems to give off quite a different, stronger odour.
i can defenetly back this up. i accidentally used too much one time, and yeah. ended up leaking D:don't use too much powder in the diaper as it may reduce the rate of absorption. I have found that when changing laying down its better to only put a light sprinkle in the diaper and rub the rest into my skin.
when you are ready to tape up make sure your hands and landing zones for the tape are clear of powder or the tapes may not stick very well.
