So, I recently got a case of the Active Ultra diapers in and have been using them non-stop. I like these diapers a lot. The all white is really nice when I am not feeling in baby mode but still want a nice thick and absorbent diaper. The diaper below is when I woke up and Peter changed me – as you can tell I am not a heavy wetter during the night and this diaper could hold a lot more but I had to get ready to go to work and I am not going to wear a wet diaper to work even though it can hold a lot more. I am stomach sleep so you can see how a lot of the urine pools a little bit more towards the front instead of the back seat of my diaper which actually helps a lot when I have a really really wet night because I get to take advantage of more of the diaper “area” rather than always just the back part of the seat of the diaper as really girls only can based on their anatomy when standing up.
I haven’t had any problems with the tapes yet as some people have stated but I could see where problems may arise with the tapes as they are not as secure as the Bambino Classico or Bianco or Teddy diapers…they are I guess what they call a “hook” type fastener which so far has stayed on fine for me. Think of it more as a really tight velcro. I think one of the key is making sure the tape is on the front of the diaper flat and not putting the tape on extremely tight. At least that is what has worked for me and I have gone through about 10+ of them without any tapes coming off or any issues. I am sure one of them will as I am a fairly active person and could see where one might just come off but so far they feel really secure to me and are my go to diaper at the moment since Bambino Diapers is restocking their mediums of Classico/Teddy/Bianco diapers. .
please update more often!with pictures! i love reading this!
I just tried one myself and was pretty happy with it. I did have trouble with the velcro strip on the tabs coming off a couple of times but they just stuck right back on. Felt good! I hadn’t worn in a while but didn’t want to have to stop on the way cause I hate public restrooms!
I really like the depends with tabs and long Poise diaper inserts, they protect and give me that cozy full feeling between my thighs when I am very wet and can be a life saver if I have a poopy accident. I like the womewns pullups but they aren’t as secure as the tab type diapers. I like the breathable tabs diaper at Sam’s club, Makers Mark they allow my diaper to breath and are easily refasened.
I cut the back of the poise and use it as a diaper doubler and sometimes on heavy days use two together. I wear non tight maternity jeans so it is easier to change and is more non binding in the bottom and front. If I mess in regular jeans it goes all over the place, I can control where the poopy goes when I wear maternity jeans and a peasant blouse over the top. I like to shop and enjoy living full time in my choice, diapers full time.
I don’t know about these particular diapers, but you did mention that the bambino teddy’s have good tapes, I don’t find that they do, even putting them on loosely still doesn’t help, they still tend to come undone a lot. I’ll buy them again b/c I love how the feel and look, and I really love how think they are. but those are the only diapers that i have had this problem with. Hope they fix because I personally think they have a great product at a reasonable price. Thanks you blog and all of your posts. You are truly and inspiration for all of us to be open about who we are and how we live our lives.
So are they quieter for changing or about the same? Since Bambino is out of stock I’ve been thinking about teyibf these out but I’m still not sure. And by the way Addy, the.teddies have the.origional Bambino tapes so tuey aare very secure now. 🙂
They are still really crinkly in my opinion. If they are any quieter it is not noticeable or is negligible.
i wear them too all the time better than any others
Thanks for the update Tommy, I’ll have to try another case of them, Like I said I love them, Just didn’t care for the tapes, But I’ll give them another try.
Adrian I was wondering about the tapes, if they are any quieter taking them off or it they are about the same as traditional tapes.
Sounds like a good diaper to try out one of these days. =]
Today, I came SO CLOSE to ordering a sample pack of the Active Ultra Briefs, but I chickened out. I was about to click the order confirmation button, but I decided against it.
I’m 18 and I live with my parents. I figured that I could get these diapers past them easily, but I just couldn’t do it…fear of discovery gets me scared just thinking about it! I had several plans for the delivery man to do, but I’m just afraid that most of them just ignore the directions. Also, since Bambino ships the samples via USPS, I would have no tracking number and thus would be less prepared when they arrive.
I’m probably just going to buy some in a few towns over from mine, where no one knows me, and I’ll hope for the best…I’m getting nervous just thinking about it!
I gotta say, I really like these diapers!!!! Got one on right now. They did an amazing job combining the refastenable tabs seen on a cloth-like adult diaper with an all plastic diaper. And since it’s from Bambino, you know it’s absorbent! :3
i wear them too they are awesome plus i can wet them and wow it can hold very crinkle on the front
