I just ordered my first pack of 14 Abena M4s (only 14 cause I'm low on money right now). It said fulfilled by Amazon so I'm hoping the packaging will be discreet.

I'm planning on doing the same thing soon, gonna have to do a pickup at the UPS or Fedex place. I can't wait to get mine, it would be really cool if you could do your own review or opinion of them.

All my diaper purchases from Amazon have always come in standard Amazon boxes.

Every order from Amazon I have gotten was discreet. Haven't worn an m4 for a while sounds like a good idea for next order

The M4's are nice. It took me a full pack to get to where I enjoyed them, before I was using GoodNites and Teddy Bambinos. Now I use all 3.

For a tip, ensure that you have them positioned correctly and that you don't tape it too tight. You can't redo the tapes without it ripping a open in the front, or at least none of mine can. I've had to throw a few away due to bad tape jobs. lol :dontgetit:

did they dump the double-use tapes? Usually you hold onto the blue tab and pull the white tab up (leaving just the blue tab itself on the front panel) and then can stick the white down somewhere else?

No? I thought the 2nd side was used to wrap the diaper up after taking it off :dontgetit: I even roll up the Teddys and use the tapes to hold it all together. For GoodNites, I roll it up and then use the leg openings to hold it together. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? LOL

Here's how I tape them when I diaper myself up. Clean diaper, sitting on my lap.

yeah those are "second chance tapes". Peel the white off, leaving the blue behind, and stick down the white where it needs to be. Make sure the front panel is still clean and dry (no powder or lotion) so the tape sticks good. Those are for checking, if needed to drop your diaper to #2, to adjust if you screwed up your taping, or to just plain snug it up if it's been on for awhile and has stretched and sagged a bit.

Tip: don't adjust both the left and right sides at at the same time. Just try to make any adjustment you need on ONE side. Then you can make another adjustment later if you need to, by adjusting the other side.

I'm wearing one right now. It's the first chance I've had in a long while to wear. :)

I didn't love M4s until I figured out how to put them on properly; now they're the only diaper I really use. You will be delighted.

Yeah, that is the intended function. However that is my one gripe with the Abena level 4s is that for some reason on many of the diapers there is a bit of the sticky part on some of the second chance tapes that is exposed between where the tab and the blue tape meet meaning that no matter what you do you end up ripping open the outer layer of the diaper when you go to detach the second chance tape from the blue pretty much making the second chance tapes on the Abenas useless.

I've never had really good luck with any brand's second chance tapes, but those are usually in the department of "not sticky enough and don't hold for long" rather than "won't undo without ripping the backing." like on the Abena.

yeah, I've experienced that also. I've also noticed the white tape doesn't stick as well as the blue. So I generally just put 'em where they belong and leave 'em be.

Thank You for the info. Once I'm in need of a change, I'll try it out. :)

Abenas are legitimately the best diapers, in my opinion. Quiet and flexible, which are two really good qualities in a tape-on diaper because they mean you can move around as if you're wearing underwear.

I actually ordered a pair too. They arrived the day after I ordered them (strangely). I must admit, they are soooo much better than the pull up brands. I've gone through 3 wetting and I still haven't leaked. Also I love the bulkiness of the Abenas. They feel so comfy and cute. One thing I do have a problem with is putting them on. Make sure that they're tight as possible, or else they might fall off (at least that's what happened to me).

Don't go for tightness, that tends to stretch the tapes and backing out and then you're back where you started. I'd recommend experimenting with the tape placement instead. As an example, the best method that I'd found for my body shape is to have the top tapes parallel with the ground while standing and at the top edge of the padding, and place the bottom tapes as low as possible but angled up. I'll put it on with the bottom of the diaper spread wide and the leg openings as far down my legs as possible, then scoot them up when I'm done taping. That way if the diaper wants to slide down it'll bind against itself trying to push the leg openings down. That's definitely not a one size fits all solution, but might give you a good starting point for the kinds of things to pay attention to while developing your own taping scheme.

I no longer purchase the Abenas. They have thinned down to the point to where they are no longer comfortable. The material seems to also have been downgraded, and quality control has seen a marked decrease. I would opt for Dry 24/7 or the ABU offerings instead.
