Who needs an adult diaper cover? A friend once told me that the only bad thing that came out of her having her beautiful twins is that she developed an incontinence problem. But as long as she had her incontinence pads, she was able to lead the same active lifestyle as she was used to without anyone knowing it.
I had not really thought about this issue being a problem with someone her age until she brought this up. Modern society is not at all ignorant about certain age-related disabilities such as incontinence (fecal or urinary) for old folk but not the pre-boomers or baby boomers.
Hence, wearing of diapers is already an integral part of the management of these illnesses but I would like to bring it to the attention of those that are a little younger with this issue too. The name of the game is “discrete and leak-proof” and comfortable.
Some patients like to use adult cloth diapers because they fear wearing plastic pants. If you are one of these individual, don’t be afraid to. Reusable cloth diapers are environmentally helpful, but plastic pants need to cover cloth diapers so it can also cover you discretely, comfortably, and it’s leak-proof.
Diapers have grown so much in usage since the 1950’s when babies started using it. Also, back then the plastic pants that were manufactured were too stiff and heavy. Stiffness of the pants makes that cringing crinkly sound when folded or flexed in any manner, and babies who wore these kind of diapers also made squeaky sounds.
Now, with the advancements of science and technology, diapers are more comfortable and no longer bulky.
The soft plastic materials that are used in the pants bend when you have extra movements. Modern plastics aren’t hard enough to be poking you. It’s become more pliable. Lighter pants would also mean that you can work freely without all those build of plastic under your garment.
Do you still remember that awkward feeling you experienced when, during holding a baby, something warm comes flooding and trickling down into your legs? That can be very well avoided now. Diapers today are made up of adult diaper covers that are high grade plastic and fits properly too.
Cloth diapers have guides in choosing the right size to get the best fit from the diapers.
Don’t let incontinence get the best of you. There are ways and means to cope with this condition. Consider it as being part of human; physiologically you may have been disabled but you don’t have to be the same way in other aspects of your life.

Many of our beliefs are created as a result of what we were taught as children. We learned from our parents, teachers and experiences what we should believe and some of these beliefs are so deeply seeded within us, that we are not aware of their existence. Remember as a child being told to believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy or...
