- Diaper Lover
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.
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?
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
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.Make sure that they're tight as possible, or else they might fall off (at least that's what happened to me).
