level of protection VS conveince

Aug 17 2010 06:51 PM

I was wondering ifanybody here has used pullups and then switched to using a breif because when using pullups you have to undress to change with a breif i find it much easier to change I manged to get some plugs for bowel incont and started using some pullups and after a few days i went back to using breifs because changing a pullup was took to long to change

I use the Medline pullup overnight brand for things like church or going to a friends - it doesn't show as much. But after one wetting I change into a Molicare brief which holds 3-4 wettings. I can't imagine changing into another pull up I would have to take my shoes, leg brace, and pants off to put another pull up on. It's ok to start out with one, but not feasible to change into one during the day if your not home. During the winter months I just wear a Molicare brief, extra clothing and layers conceal any noise or bumps from the brief.

If your needs are primarily for wetting issues you might be able to avoid a complete change with a size 6 stuffer , like Huggies Overnites, placed in your Pull Up "as is". when the "6" is soaked , the hold as much if not more than the Pull Up, you just remove it. Now you have the option to wear the nearly if not dry Pull Up or install a dry "6".
I personally will use this option for work days and short outings.
For long extended trips I use my "frankenstein" combanation of "6" in Pull Up in diaper in plastic pants that is a bit restrictive but when riding and not driving its not a problem.
Again,
When my reusables finally arrive, sometime this week, the trial and error process will begin again.
All The Best,
