Yes I did it sometimes when I was teenager and had no chance to buy real diapers. That was the age of self made diapers to me, and the absorbance layer with plastic back seemed to be good idea. But I was dissappointed every time because of leaking and they were not comfortable to my male body.
definitely guilty of this
was during my trying to be dry during the day stage with mom and still wore at night
but just missed my padded feeling
a pad was easy to hide mom would have known I was wearing my night diapers
wouldn't last long though and be back in diapers 24-7
