QUESTION ASKED BY:  Bobby

Q:

When i was 6 and started bed wetting again my mom put me back in diapers and plastic panties at the doctors suggestion, it was most embarrassing. My question is, was this or is this a common normal practice ? Thanks so much ,this is not an easy question to get a true answer to.




A:

Hello Bobby:

            No this is not a normal responce from a doctor. Most doctors will tell the parent that the child will grow out of it and just to be patient. Most doctors infact suggust a plastic sheet on the bed. They also suggest to the parent to limit the liquids a few hours before bed. Hope this helped.

QUESTION ASKED BY:  MARC


Q:


         I just turned 14 and I still wet the bed and have to where diapers. My mother puts me in cloth diapers because we can't afford disposable ones. My mom works some nights and my 12 year old sister Jenna has to put me in my diaper because I can't seem to do it by myself. I am so embarrased to be bare in front of her but she is real good and doesn't tease me. I hate this but I can't stop wetting the bed. Will this ever end. Thanks for listining



A:


         Hello Marc:


         Yes, it is possible you wetting will end. My own son wet the bed when he was around your age. The doctors told me he has a weak bladder. He did out grow it. You are lucky to have a sister that is supportive. My son was teased by his sisters. I got to give your sister alot of praise for not teaseing you and being so good to you. I don't know if you have seen a doctor for your problem or not. But if you are only wetting at night that is most likely your problem is a weak bladder like my son had. Wish you good luck and dry night in the near future.

QUESTION ASKED BY: RICHARD


Q:


         I have a problem of wetting my bed 2 or 3 times a week. My mom puts a diaper on me after the second night. After wetting my bed the last two nights my mom said if I wet my bed one more night she will have to get rubber pants for me to wear. Is this right for a 15 year old to have to wear diapers and rubber pants?




A:


         Hello Richard:


          Well first off richard, has your mom taken you to see a doctor to find out if there is a problem? Yes your should be wearing some kind of protection at night. I would suggest a disposable diaper rather than a diaper and plastic pants but it depends on what the parents decide. Wouldn't you rather wake up in a wet diaper than a cold wet bed? Their are many adults that have the same problem. People of all ages wear diapers. This site owner wears diapers because he wets the bed and has day time accidents and he is 21.

QUESTION ASKED BY: DANNIE


Q:


          hello my question is I wear diapers all day and night for the feel of it. And after seeing my cousin disaplian her daughter when she was kidding around about peeing in her pants. She said if u do I will treat you like a baby. do u know if there is a direct corraltion between the words or action and my fantasies or are they seperate? And do u know of more people like me who have complet control and just like the feel? lonely in colo. pink diapers






A:


         Hello Dannie:


           There are lots of people out there who love to wear diapers just for the feel. They are called DL's which is short for Diaper Lovers. A diaper to them is like a security blanket. It makes them feel safe and secure. And this sounds like what you described. It could have some correlation to your fantisy but it might not. It is hard to tell. Be who you are. You are beautiful.

QUESTION ASKED BY: JOHN


Q:


         I have had numerous surgeries and now have a problem of bedwetting. What do you recomend. I have tried disposables but they leak badly. Should I try cloth diapers and how many. Must I put something over them for protection. I need you advice. Thanks John






A:


         Hello John:


          We don't know what you are wearing now. So we will tell you some options of what are out there. Molicare super plus (which is purple in color) can be bought at
www.magicmedical.com. They are disposables and they hold alot. The tapes on the molicare brand are not the best so we advise you to use duck tape to help them hold. The other option is to use cloth diapers with plastic pants. We think a seven layer diaper should be enough, but only you would know. And you would for sure need a pair of plastic pants. It is always best to buy one size bigger than you wear. And if you decide to use cloth diapers with plastic pants, We strongly advise you use balmex diaper rash cream and put on a thin layer to protect your skin from diaper rash. This is because with the plastic pants the skin does not get any air. We hope this helps you out.

QUESTION ASKED BY: TOM


Q:


         Do you know anyone who makes big gauze cotton diapers? Also, what do you think are the best brands of plastic pants made that don't ever leak? Need name of companies that make them. Thanks.


A:


         Hello Tom:


        Diaperstation.com sells alot of quality cloth diapers and also sells plastic pants. Comco plastic pants are real good quality and wear well with time. But all plastic pants leak at some point. But if you take care of them and follow the washing instructions they will last you a long time.  Hope this information helps you.

QUESTION ASKED BY: JAMIE


Q:


         hi mom. i just started wetting the bed like a week ago. and im afraid to tell my parents. if been able to make homemade diapers but i think that thay will wounder where there towels went to. can you help me? i cant think of a good excuse to tell them. i had allmost got caught once and if i did they would think that i am laying and just want to wear them. i had allready asked for them but they said NO! can you please help me? if you could please reply back to me at chrisbabeo1@aol.com




A:


         Hello jamie:


            We think you should be honest with them. Mabye tell them somthing along the line of "Mom I think I have a wetting problem and would like to see a doctor about it". But with any underage person we think you should tell your parents and seek a doctor. I know it must scarry to think about how to tell your parents about a wetting problem and the possible need to wear diapers to manage the problem. But if you are honest your parents should understand. Only way they will know for sure if ther is a problem or not is to take you to a doctor. We wish you luck.

QUESTION ASKED BY:  JOE


Q:


         How can I buy diapers without my mom and other people not knowing because I have tried to pee and poop in my pants but my mom dosent want me to buy nor she wont buy them for me?






A:


         Hello Joe:


   We don't think you should do this without your parents knowledge. Your two options are, to really sit down and talk to your parents about why you feel you need to wear diapers, or the other option is to wait till you are 18 and buy them yourself.


   -Pam and Sandra

QUESTION ASKED BY: VICKY


Q:


         Thank you for your idea. My mom has agreed to let me try without a diaper on weekend nights. I still will wear one when I have school the next day cause mom says there is no time to deal with wet sheets. I have a waterproof cover on my bed already and I try not to drink to much before bedtime. If I keep my bed dry I might be able to try without diapers during next school holidays to, except when we visit my cousins house I need to wear one then. Anyway the best thing is i will go to bed tonight for the first time without a diaper and I am happy for that. thank you for helping XXX.

         Hello Vicky:


        We are glad it worked out with you. And we wish you luck on a dry night on the next school holiday.

QUESTION ASKED BY: DRYPERS


Q:


         dating isnt the easiest thing to accomplish when wearing diapers, what did you do to overcome that obstacle?




A:


         Hello Drypers:


   Dateing is hard enough with out haveing the challenge of dealing with diapers in the relationship. The same basic rules apply. After you have been with the person awhile and feel comfertable you can just make a comment such as "I heard Brintney Spears wears diapers, what do you think about that?" Or mabye you can think of a better comment that fits the moment. And then look at the way she reacts and that will tell you about how she may react with you wearing diapers. As for sandra, she was married when she had to wear diapers. But she has dated, and some are accepting and some are not. It's a 50/50 chance. And if you are lucky you will find some one that will understand. We understand it is not a easy task. We do know of other people that their dates and or partners were understanding of their position. Best of luck.

QUESTION ASKED BY: DRYPERS


Q:


          why is it that wearing diapers is such a big issue.anyone that wears underwear doesnt seem to ask or notice or point and make fun of someone that wears underwear, so why is it a big issue for someone that wears diapers




A:


         Hello Drypers:


    There are people that are ignorant of people that need diapers, and in responce to that ignorance of people that need  diapers they feel the need to make fun. We do not understand these people either. People should be more accepting of other people. Plain and simple people have problems, both big and small. Just some people can't or won't understand things so in responce they feel the need to make fun or ridicule people for it.

QUESTION ASKED BY: DRYPERS


Q:


         how did you feel about wearing diapers, should I feel that im not from another planet?




A:


         Hello Drypers:


       Yes, everyone has problems. No one is perfect. They may not have a bladder problem, but everyone has problems of one sort or another. You should not feel like you are from another planet. There are millions of people of all ages all over the world that need diapers, not just babies and the elderly.

QUESTION ASKED BY: ASHLEEY


Q:


         I am 18 and I am still diapered. I dont mind it a whole lot but when I wet my diaper I usually get a few spankings. Why does my mom spank me when she is the one making me wear diapers????




A:


         Hello Ashleey:


     We think the first thing you should do is bring this questions up with your mom. It could be that you mom feel that you may be useing the diaper out of lazyness, But you may be actually you had a accident that you couldn't help. Your mom will not understand where you are comming from unless you express your feelings to her. One thing in you favor is atleast your mom accepts the fact that you wear diapers. We wish you luck talking to your mom. Please keep up posted.

QUESTION ASKED BY: DRYPERS


Q:


         have you ever had embarressing leaks, and what did u do to cure it?




A:


         Hello Drypers:


           You can take percations. In your car or under your seat have a duffel bag with extra diapers in it. And mabye even have a water proof pad or a absorbant pad for the seat of your car in case of a leak. Also would be a good idea would be to keep a change of clothes in the car.


          As far as leaks in public, dark color clothes tend to hide leaks better. Carry a light jacket or sweater that you can tie around your waist in the event a leak. Or mabye put in a baby diaper as a soaker to try to prevent leaks and wear plastic pants over the diapers. You can also reduce liquids if you know you will be out in public. If you are going some where, try to make sure there is a restroom at the place you were going or a restroom near by.

QUESTION ASKED BY: JOHN


Q:


         I 'cheated' and went to bed without putting on any diapers and plastic pants. I wet, and the next morning my mom got mad. Now she makes my brother diaper me in the evening, and if I resist I'll be spanked. My brother can diaper me real early or whenever he wants, and i'm not allowed to cover up my plastic pants. This is embarrassing when his friends come over or whatever. I think she should give me another chance. do you? I'm 16, my brother 18.



A:


         Hello John:


     This is something you and your mom should discuss. You should explain to her that you should not be put into a possition that you would be embaressed. And we feel your brother should not be involved in your diapering needs unless you need help. And you need to learn how to diaper yourself. If you know you have a problem, why did you go that night without putting on a diaper?


       If you plan on going to bed without a diaper again, you should number one, stop drinking liquids 3-4 hours before bed. Put a plastic sheet on your bed. You can't just quit cold terkey. Again discuss this with your mom. And we wish you luck.

QUESTION ASKED BY: VICKY


Q:


         I dont like wearing diapers and now I only wet about 3 times a week do you think my mom should let me out of diapers now please.


  thanks


A:


         Hello Vicky:


     You don't mention if you wet at night or during the day time, but I will base my answers on both.


   If you are wetting during the day, it would be a good idea to wear protection.  I would recommend wearing protection during the day (If you have day time wetting problems) till you have full control. If you are not wearing protection, and you wet, it could
show through your clothing and you may get teased. So it may be better for you to use some sort of protection till you have it under control.


   If you wet during the night, untill you are in full control you should continue to use protection or see a doctor. It is always better to wake up in a wet diaper than a soaked bed. Be patient, it is probably just a stage. Or it could be your body has not fully
developed yet. Just give it time.




  Also as a alternative to diapers you could try goodnites. They are made for bed wetters. My son has tried them before and they worked for him. They are very absorbant and look like regular underwear.  You can order a free sample to try at
www.goodnites.com


    Wish you the best of luck, and please keep us posted.

QUESTION ASKED BY: ASHLEY


Q:


         I TOLD MY MOM I WET MY BED AND PANTS EVEN THOUGHT I'VE BEEN DRY FOR YEARS I WET ALL THE TIME HOW DO I COPE?


A:


         Hello Ashley:


    We are a little confused. We are not sure what you are asking.


  As far as approching your mom, tell your mom that you think you have a medical problem and that is why you think you wet. And the fact that you are wetting should be checked out by a doctor. Is it easyer for some parents to except a wetting problem if it is casued by a medical condition.


   If you are asking about different types of protection there are several things on the market. There are pads or shields that go in your underwear. There are youth briefs (or diapers) that can be used. And there are goodnites. They look just like underwear. You can find the information about goodnites and bed wetting at
www.goodnites.com. You can also type "bed wetting products" in a search engine and look at the results.


   You can also look at this site for more information. There is the message board you can post on and the chat rooms you can look into on the site. Also there are the links pages for bed wetters. I hope we have helped in some way. Please write us back and let us know how things are going or if you have
another question.

QUESTION ASKED BY: JENNY


Q:


         I have diaper rash too much of the time, what is best to use for this problem? Does shaving really help or not?


A:


         Hello Jenny:


   First of all you should change your protection more often. Make sure you wash yourself really good at each change. And also we find useing balmex helps relives rashes. It is most commenly used for diaper rash. We recommend it alot. if your rash continues you should see a doctor. Also you should continue to use the balmex at each protection change just to make sure no more rashes develope.


   As far as shaveing, with cleaning and the balmex the shaveing in really not nessesary. Shaveing just makes it a little easyer to clean, but you will probably not like dealing with the discomfort of the stubbles.

QUESTION ASKED BY: BRUNO


Q:


          Why did I start wetting the bed at the age of 14?


A:


         Hello Bruno:


      There is alot of medical reasons this may be happening. Most likely sence it started at age 14 it may be something hormonal. If you really want to find out the casue it would be best to see a doctor. It may also be that you have a weak bladder or that you sleep to deeply. You may grow out of it in time. Again we recommend you see a doctor in any case.

QUESTION ASKED BY: JOHN DOE


Q:


         How do I tell my mom I  bed wet ?


A:


         Hello John Doe:


     You say that you wear protection day and night, but then you also say that you don't. You don't leave your name or age so it makes it harder to answer this question.


   As far as telling your mom that you wet the bed, I would assume sence you say you wear protection day and night, it's possible you might have a weak bladder. Or you could be simply drinking too much liquids before bed. You should seriously get this checked out by a doctor. Tell your mom about it. Most moms are understanding about it. And most will help you through it.

QUESTION ASKED BY: KATRINA


Q:


         What is the best disposable diaper?


A:


         Hello Katrina:


       We recommend the molicare line of disposable diapers. There is the molicare super plus which holds quite a bit. They are great if you are a bed wetter. There is also the molicare classic disposable diapers. These are good if you have trouble with day time accidents.


         They won't hold a whole lot but they are the best on the market for day time use. Also if you need more protection that that we recommend useing a huggies size 6 as a soaker. The molicare super plus is about a inch thick almost and would not be real comfortable for walking around in durng the day.


  So to sum it up, we recommend useind the molicare super plus for at night if you are a bed wetter and useing the molicare classic for day time accidents. Both of these disposable diapers are alavible at Magic Medical. You can find their site address by typeing in "Magic Medical" in the search engine. They also will
ship in a plain brown box if you request it.


   Hope we have been helpfull.

As for day time protection, we suggest wearing the molicare classic. You can find both diapers at www.magicmedical.com and you can also use goodnites. Hope we were of some help. Take care

QUESTION ASKED BY: STEVEN


Q:
       How do I tell my mom that I want to wear diapers during the day? How do I tell my mom that I want to be treated as a baby again?


A:


         Hello Steven:


    If you want to be treated like a baby again, there are AB mommy's that will treat you like a baby. But most mommy's won't take care of you like a baby till you are 21.


  We recommend that you do not tell your parents about you wanting to be in diapers and treated like a baby. There is a chance your parents will not understand and may try to have you sent to a psychiatric hosptial for observation.


  We recommend waiting till you are 21 before telling your parents about your feelings of wanting to be back in diapers and be treated like a baby. And we recommend that you do a little research and have some documentation on the subject so they can read about it and try to understand. Just keep in mind not all
parents are open minded about this subject. But it is up to your descetion in the end on what you do. Good luck.

A:


         Hello Marie:


     We do not have enough backround information to answer your question. But if you do not have a medical reason for being diapered and it makes you feel uncomfertable, you need to discuss it with someone you trust such as a counciler or a clorgy or a trusted family member.

QUESTION ASKED BY: VICKY


Q:


         Hi again


         I should have said before that I only wear diapers to bed not in the daytime.  I am still having some wet nights, about 1-2  week now, and I would like to try going to bed without a diaper now but mom says I should stay in diapers till I can be trusted to stay dry most nights.  What do you think?


  Thank you,   Vicky




A:


         Hello Vicky:


    Mabye you can suggest to your mom that she could put a water proof sheet on your bed and try to go one night each week without a diaper. To help you not wet at night you might also want to stop drinking liquids 2 hours before bed. I hope this helps you out.

QUESTION ASKED BY: KEITH


Q:


          How do you know if you have diaper rash?


A:


         Hello Keith:


      If your skin is pink to red and it hurts when you touch it you most likely have diaper rash. You should begin treating it as soon as possible. We suggest you use balmex on the sore red area. Balmex works the best on the rash area. The best way to use it is to apply it to the infected area with each diaper change. Keep useing it on the same area with every diaper change till it clears up and then a week after the rash is gone.


   If your diaper rash still comes we recomend you going to see a doctor to make sure it is nothing more serious. Good luck.
