I have leaked at work before but dripping, trickle-down-my-legs-leak, not pants-soaking-obvious leak. Nothing could be done though, as I don’t bring a change of clothes or any extra diapers to change into and I don’t live close enough to leave and come back.
Why no extra diapers? The washrooms at work do not have trash cans in them. Hand dryers and no paper towels so I guess they figure no need. The single-person lockable washrooms would be preferable but those are not always readily available and still disposal is a concern. It’s either walk them out of the washroom and throw them away or take them back home and throw them away, neither of which is discrete enough for my liking.
Upon entering/exiting the facility, employees must go through metal detectors, get wanded, and put lunch bags, book bags, briefcases, suitcases, purses, etc. through the x-ray machine thing like they have at airports. (Even have to put jackets or hoodies through it if you’re not wearing them on your way in/out) When I bring diapers in/out, they have to go through the machine. Maybe it’s true what they say about other people not caring about your diapers as much as you do or maybe they weren’t paying very close attention or weren’t sure what it was but it didn’t look like a weapon or something I was trying to steal but the security guards have never said anything. I’ve brought them in/out in my coat sleeves in the winter or tucked in my waistband, but it’s too much of a hassle.
So, it’s a quality overnight diaper with an overnight booster pad in it, which sometimes I’ll turn around halfway through the day to extend its life if I’m afraid of leaking that particular day. Unfortunately, all-in-all, between the commute to/from work and work itself, it’s about 10-11 hours in that diaper.
As far as your situation goes in regards to trying to remember to change, maybe set an alarm on your watch or phone? By doing it regularly, you should get into a routine. Or do you work different shifts from time to time?
