Plastic/cloth diapers

I was wondering if anyone prefer plastic or cloth diapers. I find to plastic diapers hold up better than cloth diapers and they don't smell as much cloth diapers do. There are probably some good things about cloth diapers. My point is for those of us that prefer plastic diapers , getting hard to find that fit good.

I've used cloth diapers and the only thing that I liked about them is that they were a bit more breathable, which means they were easier on the skin but for me that was about it. Everything else was not good. Leaked more and because they were breathable well you were able to smell what happened on the inside, " I couldn't because I was use to it but others were able to." So I've never went back and have been plastic ever since. I have been using NorthShore Care for about 4 to 5 years now. Good luck in your search.

I use cloth diapers every night, except if and when I travel. The initial cost of cloth diapers is expensive, but with proper care they will last for many years. I paid about 45.00 each for mine over 4 years ago and almost all are still in great shape. I bought 6 cloth overnight pull-on diapers from fetware.com. Great prices, fast service.

I was talking about the disposable cloth diapers. I might have miss understood the original comment but a heads up I was mentioning the disposable. I don't know much about the reusable kind other than there to thick for public, at least the one I tried several years ago.

I was talking about disposable diapers. My point is that it's hard to find plastic diapers today. I know that some people do like cloth like diapers, that's okay. For the people that do like plastic diapers you can't get them because they are to expensive or they are outstock. They are pro,cons for plastic, cloth like diapers I not interested in that. Cloth like diapers are more available then plastic diapers ones. I think it is wrong, just way I feel.

Read my previous post. What I'm talking about is that there's only a few companies that sell plastic diapers for a decent price . Your abdl diapers are very expensive I think. If you look online most of medical supply company sell cloth like diapers. That's what I'm talking about. Why is it that way???

NorthShore Care is not an ABDL site. It's a site for people that need quality products for people with real incontinence like I do from a 15ft fall and now have a major injury called Cuada Equina. Sorry for trying to help you out with quality products. Good luck finding that cheap worthless crap thats great for leaks and embarrassment.

Hey, I just reread all of this and I want to apologise for my comment. I noticed that I was in the wrong and want to make up for it. I have reread your post and understand what you were trying to say. Exactly, good luck trying to find a plastic covered diaper at any pharmacy, grocery store or high end box store like Walmart. Depends were the last plastic diaper out there and were unfortunately junk. The ABDL and other online stores are very expensive but work great. Other than cost for materials, I have no idea why! Good luck with everything and hope this was a better message/reply.

Tena super i have been using for the summer. I like them. Not many leaks. Unless i push my luck lol.
