- Diaper Lover
My go-to diaper since I started having to wear them full time this past November has been plastic-backed Attends, which work really well for me. I rarely have leaks, and I use Tena Overnight pads as stuffers every night and sometimes during the day, especially if I'm at home. But lately I've started to develop diaper rash for the first time ever, likely due to how hot it's gotten over the past month. I bought a pack of CVS/Walgreens generic diapers yesterday, since I used to wear them for bedwetting before I started having to wear full time and switched to the Attends. They definitely seem to be more comfortable in the heat, and I like how much quieter they are than the Attends. I also haven't had any problems with leaks yet, even without using a Tena Overnight stuffer. But I've noticed a faint scent of baby powder (I use lots of powder) sometimes when I sit down (which I never noticed with the plastic-backed Attends) and I'm wondering how noticeable it might be to people around me. I'd like to start wearing the cloth-backed generics during the day until I can order some better ones (probably Tena Classic) but should I be nervous wearing them to work on Monday? I tried wearing them with plastic pants when I took a walk just now, and it was more uncomfortable than if I'd just worn the Attends. I drink alot of water and change every few hours (unless I'm wearing a stuffer, which can last an afternoon if necessary) so I'm not worried about urine odor as much as I'm worried about containing the scent of powder and diaper cream. Is there a disposable that would work better than the generics at containing the smell, or are all cloth-backed diapers pretty much the same when it comes to this?
