Well, back to this again... Makeshift diapers. What have you made when you ran out of a supply of diapers?

Sorry, this may be a little bit of a rant here, just kind of annoyed at the moment... I'll try to keep it to the point then ask the question at the end.

Well, guys, I'm having some money issues currently. Also, even if I did have the money, my dad found out about me buying nothing but toys, plushies, and diapers with most of my money. He doesn't want me to order stuff I don't need online because of it, he's now monitoring me more closely. :/

I really don't know why it matters so much, I buy my own clothes, food, furniture, etc. With my own money no less. Hell, I even help him with bills. He drinks and smokes his money away, why can't I spend some money on myself the way I like? >.< Oh well, just have to put up with it for just a few more months until I move out with a few friends.

As for the diapers, he knows about my bedwetting, but he'd rather me just have the bed protector as I don't wet that often. Couple times a month, if that. He also says that I'll get too dependent on them and my problem will only get worse. Which, honestly, it's true. I admit that it isn't making my problem better. In fact, the reason why I'm still a bedwetter at 22 is because of the diapers. I've been in them most of my life, at least at night. I enjoy them a bit too much, as we all here probably do. lol

I was gonna get a friend order for me online but her mom won't let her. I could go to Walmart and get some Depends but oh man they're bad, in my opinion. And with my dad monitoring me, he won't be happy to still see diapers in my room.

Soooo... With all that being said. I thought I would make my own. Got like 5 towels and 2 boxes of white Glad ForceFlex garbage bags. Just cut two holes slightly shorter than the width of your legs in each bottom corner. Fold and put the towel between your legs. Put on some underwear to hold the towel up. Then, pull the garbage bag up and tuck the excess into the underwear.

It's not the same, but it'll do for the time being.

What have you guys done to make a diaper once you've run out?

Also, do you think there will be a problem with my junk breathing/sweating/stinking(when wet) too much with it overnight?

I didn't do much with cloth makeshifts. I used trash bags and some vinyl sheeting for plastic pants on several occasions but I stuck with modifying disposable baby diapers until I gave up any kind of stash while living at home due to unpleasant discoveries.

What you propose shouldn't be a problem as long as you wash your diaper with some frequency. You're mimicking a cloth diaper and people wear those without too much trouble. They just need cleaning.

I'm curious as to why you describe your enjoyment of diapers as the reason for still being a bedwetter. That doesn't quite make sense to me unless there's more you're not saying. I didn't have a bedwetting problem but we have had a number of bedwetters here and while they may or may not have had diapers related to their bedwetting, most of them stopped with or without them. If you don't want to bog down the thread with that, you could make a thread on that subject or PM or just leave me in suspense if it's uncomfortable.

I think I could have worded that better for clarity. I'm not saying that's the reason why, just that I agree with my dad that I rely too much on them. Most of me wishes I wasn't a bedwetter, but the other part of me does, and I think that's why I still wake up wet some nights. It's not just a bladder or sleep issues, it may also be subconscious.

Aren't they better than having a wet bed? Isn't that precisely what they're relied on for? What does not relying on them get you? I'm not asking this because I think bedwetting is great or that everyone should wear diapers but because they seem like a reasonable help for a lousy situation. Have you ever seen a doctor for this? If so, what was recommended? Maybe I'm out of step here but it seems like diapers of some kind would be useful while you worked on staying dry, presuming that is possible. It sort of sounds like it's blaming the victim, i.e., you.

IMHO it's worth making economies elsewhere in your life to enable you to enjoy better diapering experiences, especially if it helps you stay comfortable in bed and get a decent night's sleep, as Trevor says. Don't waste time on makeshifts, get some Drynites or whatever, save time and hassle with wet sheets and delight in being properly protected. It'll be worth the money.

BTW, what business has your father got with any of this? You might be under his roof and obliged to follow the house rules but your underwear, disposable, absorbent or otherwise, is yours alone.

You know how some of the users on here claim that if they wear a diaper to bed, they'll wake up with it wet but have no issues on the occasions that they don't wear to bed? Or the people who say that when wearing a diaper they can get themselves to just sort of dribble constantly, but are perfectly continent when not wearing one? I think that's what he's getting at.

That said, it's definitely something that he should see a doctor over, and I wouldn't take any of that reasoning as a reason not to wear some protection. It could be a sign of some bigger issue like cancer or nerve damage or something.

I'd also be worried about the financial side of things. Spending all of your money on diapers and toys and such doesn't sound particularly healthy either. There needs to be some moderation there.

I wouldn't put it past one of us but I don't recall any offhand, at least not without "training". I have seen posts and threads here now and again of people who were surprised to have wet during the night with no obvious cause and no significant history of bedwetting, but they're hardly the norm even in this odd group.

In short, while I might believe an unusual circumstance exists, I wouldn't presume so without exhausting more likely explanations.

You might want to look into ordering a couple of Dependico diapers. That way you don't have to worry about not having diapers and wetting the bed. If you order disposable diapers you can request the shipper to hold them for pickup and sneak them into the house at your convenience.

I would agree with the Dependeco suggestion. They are very comfortable and breathable, and pretty well priced.

I'm wondering if you are short of money, is there a way to either work more, or get a job that pays better? My freedom from home came from employment and my moving out. I do think your dad is being unreasonable if you are wetting the bed. Personally, as Paxe said, go get some Drynites or Goodnites, etc. and enjoy both the protection and the diaper.

Sorry guys, I was out for a couple days. But thanks for the concern and the responses. :)

Well, like I said, I can't order online for the time being. I think he's just worried about money because we've lost somewhere around half our work via a company buyout. I may get another job here soon, then move out shortly. And, surprisingly, I think my dad is being reasonable. I only wet occasionally, and the mattress is protected, so... I've told him I'm definitely wearing when over at a friend's house, and he said that's fine. I may pitch to him cloth diapers if he can get over the initial price, I'll be buying them so it should make this easier. I know of Dependecos, don't know if dad will go for them, but once I get my place I'll definitely get them for cost effectiveness.

As for the makeshift towel/bag combo, wore them over at a friends house. I'm surprised how well they work/ hold up. I'd suggest it if you can't get any real diapers. Noticed they were a bit hotter than normal diapers, though. Good thing it was cold outside, if it was warmer they would be a bit uncomfortable. I didn't wet them there, but when I came back I decided to wet them for a test. 4 full blown wettings. lol Looks like they hold a lot. I have a feeling that you would have to change shortly after wetting with these, though. The wetness doesn't wick away, it is right against the skin and it may irritate the skin after a few hours. It's good for just overnight wear, I think they would be good for me, at least for right now until I get cloth.

What have you guys done to make a diaper once you've run out?

Also, do you think there will be a problem with my junk breathing/sweating/stinking(when wet) too much with it overnight?


1) you are 22 - that means no matter where in the world you reside you are an adult by legal standards.
This means your money = your money = your decision what you do with it.
Not everything is a wise decision, and your dad might dislike it and tell you not to - but he has no power over your money and your spendings.
(more on this a bit further down).

2) Bedwetting? at 22... have you seen an urologist?
Usually it is rare for an adult of your age without other medical issues to suffer from bedwetting - adult bedwetting is a LOT more common than one might think even "official" statistics think the figure is between 0.5 and 1.5% of the adult population!
But often times there are underlying medical conditions. so if you have not, you should get a thorough check up.
I know a thing or two about bedwetting - I've been wetting at night for all my life.
And no, diapers per se don't make bedwetting better or worse, they're just a sort of remedial fix for not waking up in a nasty, wet, cold bed.
And I have to bring in the age card once more: at 22, HOW YOU HANDLE your bedwetting issues, is entirely YOUR OWN decision. if you want to use diapers, use diapers. Your Dad, has absolutely NO SAY on how you handle your personal medical matters. If you want to use condom catheters, do so... if it's diapers: do so... if it's only the bed-protector: do so... if you want to go cloth diapering, do so. this is a PERSONAL ISSUE and basically none of your dad's business.

3) Improvised diapers.
Sure thing. if you're short on cash at the moment, going the cloth route can save you some $. especially if your bedwetting is only a infrequent occasion.
But I'd seriously skip the garbage bag. In a pinch, fine - but I'd be weary of wearing a garbage bag, made definitely not with next-to-skin-wear in mind and thus devoid of any health / safety standards.
Also it rips easily, is difficult to put on nicely and you'll just basically humiliate yourself (I don't think it's a nice thing to put yourself into a garbage bag).
Search online for plastic pants (I recommend PU type and not PVC - far more comfortable). they will outlast your garbage bags and thus in the end be even more affordable.
For the diapers themselves: I'd also suggest going to get some microfiber towels... they wick far better than your normal terry towels and thus keep your skin a bit dryer this way - also less bulk required.
if you can't afford any of this: source some good quality PVC (shower curtain) and use a sewing machine to sew your own plastic pants (elastics, zig-zag stitching) ... it's pretty simple and you can find cut-patterns all over the web.
Whilst probably not as good as a factory made one (at least not for the first few you make) - it will still beat the garbage-bag solution by a long distance.


4) Money... and your situation.
obviously I don't really know anything about your predicament - about your living situation and why you sound like your dad has a lot of control over you.
Firstly, I would say don't be stupid - if you have money issues... try to stop buying plushies and what not - limit your spending on stuff you really need.... try to get out of the financial issues first.
Housing: Sure whilst you live with your dad, presumably under his house - there's certainly the thing about "his home, his rules" - to SOME EXTEND.
You remain an adult, and as mentioned before, no matter what your situation is, your dad has no right to decide for you how you take care of your bedwetting.
Especially as it is YOUR BEDWETTING and not HIS. Frankly speaking, even if I'd wet only once every two weeks I wouldn't just rely on the bed-protector... I'd do so if my bedwetting would like twice a year - fine. but everything more frequent - no thanks. To me, honestly, waking up in a soaking wet bed in the middle of the night because I'm all wet and cold and smelly, damn that stuff just sucks big time.
I vividly remember the time in my childhood when my parents tried EVERY other option but diapers to handle my bedwetting... that was up to a point where I basically begged them to put me back in diapers as honestly I couldn't handle the wet bed, the nasty wet bed, any longer. And diapers it was. At that time I really wasn't into diapers as a DL - but I just preferred the security and the rather dry feeling, in the morning - compared to a wet bed.
Just saying - it's a VERY PERSONAL decision on how you handle a PERSONAL PROBLEM - and at your age, it is your decision, and yours only.
The whole situation you describe sounds like one where you really need to sit down with your Dad and have a mature chat about your own life, his boundaries and your own decision and his need to respect them and not interfere.

5) Monitoring your purchases...
well apply point 4... and really, do whatever it takes to get out the financial dependency and move out.

Thanks for the reply, man. My update was the post before yours, it may have answered some of your questions.

My dad isn't controlling at all, I didn't mean to give that vibe, he's just concerned at the moment about money, which is understandable. Though, I do have an issue with him bitching about what I buy that makes me happy when he's even worse with always going out to bars almost every night. I am responsible with my money, I do pay bills/buy what I need first.

I don't wet often enough to where it's a major problem. It's just a combination of drinking before bed, tylenol pm (only after like a few days no sleep, I really hate pills), small bladder, stress, and sleep issues. I really don't think it's related to anything serious like cancer or diabetes or anything else. I have been when I was younger, but me and my dad both hate doctors. Multiple reasons. I won't go unless I have a broken leg or I'm dying. I'd rather not go so they can fondle my body, run any/every test imaginable, tell me things about myself and about bedwetting that I already know, then give me some generic med for bedwetting. I also refuse to take much less pay for medication that has the possibility to make things worse or have additional side effects. I'm fairly certain I can stop of my own accord if I truly wanted to.

I'm not really saying diapers make it worse, literally, just that I'm agreeing with my dad that I'm relying on them too much. To me, waking up in a wet bed isn't all that terrible, I could go without for awhile. In all honesty though I don't think I could go without diapers for long, I love them too much. I'm talking to my dad about cloth, which is a cheaper solution.

About the makeshift, they're not bad, actually. They're perfect for just at night. I have Glad ForceFlex, they don't rip/get punctured that easily, besides I double up and I'll just be in bed with them, I hope there's nothing that sharp in bed. o.o I dunno about it being all that terrible on my skin, if it can handle the chemicals in a diaper, it can handle a little plastic. Though, it does get a bit hot when sitting in one spot for a long time, but nothing that bad.

No, I was just sort of agreeing with my dad that I just don't do it often enough for diapers to be worth it for the money at the moment. I'm talking to him about cloth here soon.

As I said to EPO1 I don't wet often enough to where it's a major problem. It's just a combination of drinking before bed, tylenol pm (only after like a few days no sleep, I really hate pills), small bladder, stress, and sleep issues. I really don't think it's related to anything serious like cancer or diabetes or anything else. I have been when I was younger, but me and my dad both hate doctors. Multiple reasons.

I also refuse to take much less pay for medication that has the possibility to make things worse or have additional side effects. I'm fairly certain I can stop of my own accord if I truly wanted to.

I never said I spent all of my money on things I enjoy, that's only after I buy the things I need and bills, which I have to help out with because he can't pay them most of the time. As I've said, I payed for everything I have with my own money, if dad can blow his money on drinking all night most nights, I'm not the one that needs monitoring. That's mostly why I'm upset there.

Aren't they better than having a wet bed? Isn't that precisely what they're relied on for? What does not relying on them get you?

I feel as if I should throw you in here as well as you have asked the same questions and said the same stuff first. lol

The point made about cloth was a good one actually. Unlike disposables which are basically "wasted" if you wear it to bed but don't use it, there's really no loss with cloth. The wear and tear really only happens when you wet it and have to wash it.

Just saying... for the price of one box of Glad ForceFlex you can get a pretty decent plastic pant (or if you would prefer - as I would: a PU type pant).
By the time you're gone through one pack of garbage bags, you've already saved money.
Granted no PU/Plastic pant will last forever, but they will last you some time if you take some care.
Living on a shoe-string budget doesn't mean to live without comfort ;)


And about the medical stuff... get it checked - I'm not talking about cancer or anything. But even when taking sleeping pills, you shouldn't wet the bed for this.
Trust me, I hate doctor visits about as much as you do... but there's just stuff you'd be better with the motto: better safe then sorry...

And out of pure curiousity: why is it your dad has ANY Say in how you handle your bedwetting issues at all??
Don't understand this to be honest - you're no 10 year old anymore.
If my dad even as much as tried to interfere with my way of handling my IC / bedwetting these days, well I'd tell him, nicely, but firmly to mind his own business.

I may get some here soon, as well as some cloth diapers. He said cloth is fine, it really was just a money issue, I believe.

I dunno, I'm not really worried about this to the point of going to the doctor. I may go sometime just to check up, then I may bring it up, but the doctors here are notorious for giving generic webmd advise and then giving medication, with side effects that cause more problems than solving. Part of what killed my mom. I don't want any of that crap, honestly.

Well, again, I don't blame him too much with the situation we're in. His argument was understandable. At least we reached a decent compromise.

Doctors: whilst I certainly understand your frustration - and really good doctors are a tad rare compared to the average one - it is also a part of the patients responsibility to keep up a dialog.
Like if you don't like where a doctor goes (Only med, test results inconclusive, etc.) you have to communicate back - same goes for side effects. Communication is key.
It took me personally several attempts in my adult life to finally find an urologist who works WITH me and FOR me... Even though at the current time there is not a lot medically speaking that can be done to cure me from my IC issues - I like to keep up to date on options and check up on some aspects to make sure they don't get out of control.


Dad:
I can understand his concerns if you are in a fincancially tight situation....
But I still fail to see how it is actually any of his business, forget about decision, on how you handle a personal medical issue once you're of age...
To me, you should really try to get that talked over with your dad - he might not like your decisions, but they should be YOUR decisions and not his.
Ask him how he would feel if the situation would be reversed - he would have some bedwetting and you would tell him how he should handle it.

Personally I just use a bath towel folded and tucked into my pants. Works very well. I cant have any "real" diapers I don't have the privacy or the ability to hide them, this way if someone finds the towel I can just say I threw it behind my laundry basket and forgot about it.
