To answer the main question, yes UPS is fantastic for diaper delivery.Each year I buy about 20 cases of Attends from Care Givers Partnership. All of those are drop shipped via UPS directly from the Attends factory in North Carolina. The same nice guy has been or primary UPS driver since 1991, although we have moved 3 times. Never has he indicated he knows the contents, nor has a case ever gone missing.
I must say that we get a lot of stuff delivered to our house, by UPS, Fed-Ex and the USPS. Often nobody is home, but the delivery folks are careful. Come Christmas we make sure all of our regular delivery folks are very happy!
I have a standing order for a case (96) Attends Breathable EA Small every 3 weeks. Only if I am way ahead do I ask them to skip a shipment. I like the Breathable because they are discreet and the fact they are thinish is no problem for me because I change often to avoid my own sweat irritating me.Angela: What kind of Attends are they? If they're the old kind with the blue tapes, I need a way to contact these people. *grin* I miss those diapers more than I can even explain.
Well thanks a lot for the info (and the super-quick response). I'll look into it when I can. You're the best. *grin*I have a standing order for a case (96) Attends Breathable EA Small every 3 weeks.

I only order Attends Youth Briefs when I am down to half a case (96 to the case) Those were called Attends Small for years and are a classic design with a poly-plastic outer layer and two sticky tapes per side. Mostly I wear those to bed when I am feeling so sick I cannot be sure of my bowel control. I also wear them to bed when traveling because the poly-plastic slides on sheets without the cling of cloth-like that pulls gaps which leak. In 2008 I ordered 3 cases of Youth.
The cat number for Youth is: BRCL1000
The cat number for Breathable EA Small is: BRBX10
People who are polite with Attends customer service find they are really generous about samples, which is the way to decide if a size and style will be right for you. I am a petite woman so my choices of disposables is limited.
