Hey ya'll!! I hope you don't mind me asking about this... I'm still fairly new to diapers and I've not had a lot of experience with them except in the past couple of months.

So, I am a 23yr old female... and I'm fairly curvy, but nothing extreme. I am a bit of a gusher... it all comes rushing out at once. EVERY diaper I've tried has leaked on me. I've tried all the "decent" ones you can buy in the store, and even bought some Tranquility ATN - and while they only leaked a tiny bit, they still leaked.

I just want to be able to wet one good time and not have my diaper leak. :(

Any suggestions... please?

Get some ultra thick diapers like Abena X-Plus, Molicare Super Plus, Dry 24/7 or Secure X-Plus. I have never tried these but I have heard they're great.
Oh, and why does your age says 22 when its actually 23.
You can fix that in the requests forum.

You can try adding a cloth stuffer this will absorb the urine quicker and pass it into the diaper.

Something like a hand towel, and try pointing the lower tabs upwards and the top tabs down this will hold the diaper better.

I had alot of problems with leaks you have to keep experimenting with the way you put the diaper on and stuffers, the more absorbant the better, I use microfiber towels, they work well for me in cheap diapers.

are they leaking because they are not absorbing fast enough, or because they are getting full? I'm certain its because they are not absorbing fast enough, so what if you tried something like plastic pants?

Thanks so much for the replies!

I really don't know what the problem is. I pee a LOT, and I pee pretty quickly... so maybe a mixture of both?

I think I'm gonna try a cloth stuffer next time, with a reg. stuffer and the diaper itself.

Are the Dry 24/7 diapers the most absorbent you can buy?

well I do not know about the cloth stuffers though I would say from being one to flood the trick is practice. Try to make your self empty out every hour or so. Not easy being that I have still not mastered it, though it is a start.

As for the dry 24/7 I think they are the best you can get for the price. Though if you have any other questions you can contact me at tigersmoonva for yahoo if you like. I think you have been talking with Darkfinn before.

Honestly... the issue is more with your bladder than it is with your choice of diaper. There aren't many diapers that will do well when you flood.

It's all a matter of getting used to using your diapers as opposed to using the toilet.

We are trained from childhood to hold our urine for quite a while and then void it all at once in an acceptable location... to use diapers properly this training must be reversed.

I suggest two things.

#1: Better diapers. The store brand diapers available today are pretty much crap-o. Sitck to ordering online... something like Abena or Dry, even Secure or Tranquility if you want. These products will handle a lot more wettings than anything you can lay your hands on at the local CVS.

#2: Learn to wet more often. Practice by drinking a lot... then try to go as much as you can... once an hour is a good starting point. Most diapers are designed for incontinent (IC) individuals who leak urine regularly in small spurts... so they don't always do well coping with large amounts over short periods. Eventually your bladder will get used to emptying with a lesser amount in it... and soon enough it will all become second nature.

Remember... "diaper training" will take some time... just like potty training did. Be patient and consistant... you will see results soon enough.

Right... keep in mind adult incontinence products are (surprisingly, Gasp!) designed for people with incontinence.

What that means is they are made to be wet in gradual, smaller amounts, not as one big flooding... or "gush". o_O

They should really make Bambinos better for that, then.

Flooding and gushing is always a problem. I have over active bladder and urge incontinence. I don't feel my bladder getting full till it's full and then it goes. After trying lots of different diapers, I have found one that works for me. The Dry 24/7 has been able to hold the gushes, but like any diaper, I still have to give it a couple of minutes to soak in before I sit back down. Just keep experimenting till you find what works for you.

If the Dry 24/7s don't work, you may want to go with cloth - cloth diapers will wick a lot faster then a disposable, and probably absorbs just as fast.

I think you'll feel a lot dryer with a disposable, though. They're designed to pull moisture away from your skin, while cloth diapers really don't.

Seriously, try learning to just go more often in smaller amounts. I know this can be a difficult skill to obtain - I still haven't managed it myself - but it will help avoid leaks and mean you get more usage out of your padding. Also, get used to how long it can last. If you know when it is getting close to leakage you can take it off, or at least stop going in it, to avoid getting caught out by it.

I don't think any diaper is going to do well with the flooding issue, no matter how well made it is or how good the manufacturers try to make it. Disposable diapers aren't going to be able to absorb all of that as quickly as you want. I think it's just the nature of the product.

Now cloth diapers on the other hand, probably would work much better for you, Liz. I'd suggest giving those a try, or trying to "diaper train" yourself as others here have mentioned.

Thanks so much, all of you, for the wonderful suggestions.

I'm going to play around and see what works (after all, isn't that half the fun? :) ) I ordered a sample pack of DRY 24/7's... going to experiment with cloth liners too, see if that helps.

I appreciate your help, so much!

Give those cloth stuffers a try, flooding is the way I like to use my diaper I hold it as long as I can and just let it go, once and a while I do get a leak but not often, and I'm useing cheapo diapers.

It's worth a try, to see if it works for you.

i think its best tr try to wet more often, as above, i used to flood every diaper in existance, especially while having an Xtra large bladder at the time. i have trimmed it down alot with diaper wearing 24/7 but unloading most of a quart will do it for sure

Right. If you're going to wet, it's best not to have a huge flood. Molicare Super Plus is totally awesome but you have to mail order them and they're kind of expensive. But I haven't had one leak yet.

i have both molicare super plus(<---i wish i could sell them) and abena abri-form x plus, there is no comparison between the two. abena is a hundred times better. you can flood it 2-3 times before leaking, and you can still pee a few little times too. molicares bunch up and clump really badly also. never tried the dry 24/7's
