So, I figured I would make a post about wet diapers and clumping that happens in some poorly made diapers.  In many store brand and poorly made diapers you get something called clumping where the urine causes the material to clump and you lose that nice soft protective cushion in the diaper and it turns into this rougher clumpy mess in the diaper.  I have posted a picture of an Attends Diaper below that I wore a while ago after I had wet it…you can see the clumping in the bottom of the diaper.

I hate clumping which is precisely why the majority of the time I prefer to wear premium adult diapers instead of cheaper made diapers. You probably have noticed clumping before if you wear a lot of store-brand adult diapers. Clumping does eventually happen in premium adult diapers as well but it takes a significantly longer period of time and usually by that time you have probably wet the diaper about 3 times before you even notice any sort of clumping at all.

I just always hated the feeling of the clumps and it also significantly reduced the absorbency as well. Plus, maybe it is just me but when you can actually see the clumping from the front and bottom of the diaper from the outside it looks unattractive to me and sort of ruins that “look” of a nice clean white thick adult diaper. Maybe its just me though. Anyways, just me rambling..

    I agree completely, not only is it unattractive but extremely uncomfortable. The premium brand do a much better job of preventing this than cheap ones. Not to mention they tend to have better leg gatherings and general feel in the first place. Have you noticed that Premium diapers seem to not make you as sweaty after wearing for an hour or two, sometimes longer.

    yeah thankfully I never deal with clumping. I use Abena Abri-form X-plus, and change every 8 hours.

    nice Blog… I also don’t like clumping… It’s very moist and uncomfortable to use…

    Here in Europe, Attends are made in Germany and are among the best diapers around like regular 10. In US you guys get some other export type Attends that I don’t even recognize. Whats great about Attends here in the amazing amount of capacity, absorption and long hours of sitting with no leaks!

    Tena slip maxi does not cause clumping

    Besides after any diaper clumping up after use of course, what about the diaper bunching up well before its been use?! I’m sure there is a difference for anyones reasons for wearing diapers when they chose to. Besides, a diaper that is a bit bunched up would be uncomfy to wear for long and would most likely make you leak very bad before the diaper would do its job. Just my thought.

    This is why you should just stick with Bambinos. Really–they are the best diapers that money can buy.

    Ive been using the bambino bianco and secure diapers for a while now and have to say, ive never had one of them clump on me once. Other brands that i used to wear did. However what i heard about secure and bambino for a while turned out to be true for me at least. They are the best, in my opinion from my experience.

    Now i would never want to have to wear walgreens brand again, they seemed to be the worst at clumping and the least comfortable to wear. Being incontinent is something ive learned to live with. Wearing low quality diapers is what i never want to adjust to.

    I have had no problems with attends. I have mild incontinence and maybe that is why. I tried just guards, but a diaper is best for me. Depends also doesn’t clump. I agree with Wes that Walgreens brand is the WORST EVER!!!!

    Publish more and stay dry!

    I absolutely agree. I really dislike diapers that clumbed! Especially when you are a man and use mainy the front part of the diaper. When then the diaper clumbs you will only have the thin plastic wrap where you need your diaper most.

    I have made best experiences with Attends Slip Regular. It distributes the pee very good in the diaper, even to the back side, which is very seldom for a men’s diaper. Also Tena Slip Maxi (a European model) I really like.

    Anyway, thank you very much for your blog, Adrian! I really hope you keep your motivation!

    Clumping wet diapers is a function and aesthetic NIGHTMARE, I agree. It happens so often with the lesser brands and, thankfully, next to never with the premium brands.

    Unfortunately, with a limited budget and depending on insurance to cover my needs, there isn’t always the greatest of choices. This isn’t Europe where they have some of the best products for incontinence around and some of the best insurance on Planet Earth. This is the United States… where people seem to think that the cheaper something is the better it will be. Needless to say, with the best diaper brands being “online purchase” only, there aren’t many options and I couldn’t begin to count how many pairs of tights I changed this winter because of this problem alone.

    I’ve had that happen. Because I need to wear diapers because I still wet quite alot, I like a diaper that maintains its absorbancy up to its saturation point. It frustrates the hell out of me when I wet a disposible diaper even a little bit and the absorbant pulp just clumps up and breaks down and cannot absorb any more. It’s as though I’ve wasted money on a diaper that’s supposed to absorb a lot of pee. Attends are the worst at that.

    I hope this is not off topic, but… where are all the people that love cloth diapers. I have the best time and never get a diaper rash while I am in them. My diaper is absorbant made by Angel Fluff and Tri County Cloth I can wash and clean them when they are dirty saving the landfill.

    I use disposables with Poise booster pads when I travel but at home it is cloth diapers for me. Sam’s club has some called Makers Mark U think that are cloth covered with PUL that are breathable and nice with tabs that stay where you place them. Fetware makes a good overpanty that lasts if you take care of it.

    I like the ammonia smell from the diaper pail, does anyone else think it is a turnon but me. My nipples will stand up strong and hard when I get it opened.

    Well thanks for a great forum, Adrian
