Supporting Adult Baby and Diaper Lover Companies

Filed under Products

The adult baby and diaper lover community is huge. I have personally done research in comparison to just how popular the community is in regards to other “communities”. The ABDL community is unique and I think is a grossly underestimated community that many business have yet to take advantage of. The few ABDL specific companies that at least gear their products to ABDLs are limited but are typically very good. Some companies do not flat out say they are adult baby and diaper lover supporting people but they advertise within the community and their products are made on the more “adult baby conscious” mind in my opinion. For example, Secure Personal Care is a company that is not “advertised” as geared towards ABDLs but they are very ABDL friendly and many of their products cater to the needs of the ABDL community. The thickness, design, etc of their products are all assets many ABDLs desire. The same cannot be said for Depends because most of their assets in their diapers are made for the everyday incontinent user in mind which means less absorbent, thinner, etc. So, I devised a list of companies that I believe are very ABDL friendly in my experience of ordering from them:

    While I agree with you, I do not understand why many companies (and I do not think of the companies you’ve listed), that cater to the ABDL world charge the extra dollar? Many items are simply well overpriced, just because they have found that niche. The taste it leaves behind for me, is that they are not as trust worthy as a ABDL catering company that charges appropriate prices, like Bambino, XP etc.

    Another, not related thought is why is nobody openly talking about Secure and Bambino being the same company? I understand why they would have 2 store fronts, for the medically diaper using population, but for us (ABDLs) it really doesn’t make a difference.

    Very nice post. Definitely a good idea to support those who I guess “support us”.

    Adrian, as I’m sure you know there are more than just diaper sites out there that either cater to or are ab/dl friendly weather they intend to be or not. I touched on this very topic in my own blog not too long ago. Here’s the link to my entry about this subject here:

    http://herdaddy.wordpress.com/2010/03/07/finding-clothes-for-your-lg/

    There is no doubting the size and popularity of our little community here. It’s been growing steadily over the past couple decades, thanks of course to technology and the advent of the internet. As I recently mentioned in my blog, there has been no better time in history for the ab/dl community. Those with incontinence get to enjoy the perks technology has to offer as well. Privacy, reaching out anonymously to support groups, and general peace of mind dealing with a rather unfortunate circumstance.

    The products available are getting better, the choices and selection are becoming more diverse, and the ease at which to obtain these products, be it a custom tailored adult onesie to a case of premium adult diapers, is simply unprecedented.

    Not that I am equating the two, but it will be interesting to see what the near future holds for both the incontinent population and the ab/dl community as technology and awareness improve for each.

    Tom: I don’t think its an issue that Secure and Bambino may be the same company at all. ABDLs would not care – Secure offers some amazing products in my opinion. But, the incontinence community probably does not want to buy from a site that is “openly” ABDL looking if you catch my drift. So, Secure wants to cater more towards the incontinence community but also be friendly and cater their products to ABDLs as well.

    I also agree with you about the pricing. I feel Bambino, Secure Personal Care, XP Medical all charge VERY good prices for the products they offer. There are several companies that I feel overprice and one being ABUniverse…very overpriced for the product they put out…but they are an ABDL catering company and if you have gobs and gobs of money then support them. I just don’t want to overpay.

    Eman: Yes, you bring a good point. There are many clothing type business online that cater to ABDLs but I don’t really have much experience with them so I just don’t want to review them without much experience…ya know. I am sure they are good…most people want to hear about the adult diaper suppliers for ABDLs anyways since diapers are the main staple :-) But, definitely good point! Thanks!

    Tom, no offense buddy, but you gotta kinda get your head out of your own ass. The world does not revolve around you or abdl’s. What secure did by creating two store fronts is very good business sense. We may not care, but the rest of the not-so-open-minded people will. They’d lose a lot of business for sure if they didn’t segregate the two and “pretend” to be separate entities.

    The prices for Abena, Secure, Bambino and others are direct examples of companies who are producing their own product. They own the machines, they produce and ship the final product right from their own facilities. ABUniverse however, has their signature products produced for them overseas and shipped in. Less quality, higher prices to cover shipping, etc. You can’t blame them for trying, and they seem to have created quite a buzz with the unveiling of the “Cushies”. I’d like to see Bambino be so bold as to create a similar product with their signature superior quality.

    Thanks for the kind words Adrian, but you do have *some* experience with ab/dl clothing. I think there was once a picture of you in a pink onesie floating around. Probably a “Gabby’s” I assume.

  6. Tom says:

    Adrian: I agree with you in both points. I might just not have written it so perfectly, but I agree and would handle my business case as Secure/Bambino does (with 2 store fronts). What I was saying is, that WE have no problem with buying from a non ABDL site, but people with medical reason will be more sensitive to that topic.

    Eman: No offense to you Buddy, but my head sits just right on my shoulders, therefor I do see that I am not the center of the world. …but thanks for checking in.

    We could put amazon.com on the list, they carry tons of diapers.

    Hi Adrian and fellow readers. As good as the mentioned sites are for quality disposables I think that fellow AB/DL’s should also look into the cloth diaper market. Here are some sites for Adult size cloth diapers.

    http://www.lovingcomfort.com/index.html

    http://www.adultclothdiaper.com/Home_ACD

    http://www.lifestylesemporium.com/

    http://fetware.com/index.phphttp://pacifiersrus.com/

    Yes, if companies support the AB/DL community the we should support them by buying there products. Yeah I can’t say I’ve ever picked up on say Bambino/Secure as two different companies. Besides the Diapers we all wear and use what about a pacifier or two for AB’S and a bottle nipple from Fetware.com The Nuk 5 size Pacifier and bottle nipple are perfect for those that go more into the AB side than the DL side.

    If not, what is the ratio for any of us in this AB/DL community for more AB vs DL. Here is a site that helps the community and I think they use the term Advaned Baby. It is more for mental health, but it has a fair amount of info just for thought. http://www.toddlertime.com/index.html

    Sorry if this reply is big, but I feel these sites are worth bringing up for cloth diapers and plastic-pants for related diapering with diapers. I did space this out a bit to make it easier to read maybe thats why is a long reply. Have a nice day all have to leav and go to work now.

    Has anyone besides me tried www/dry247.com?

    I got a sample from them and I think they fit better for me and seem to be of equal or better quality than Bambinos (which is what I normally wear).

    The price is too high for me though..

    Also, anyone notice the Bambinos have changed? I dont think they have the same plastic. they dont sound the same and the dont seem to fit the same. I have one left from my last case and it’s not like the ones I just got.

    Is there a difference in Classico and Bianco ? I have always bought the plain ones, but they were out and got the ones with prints (not relly into the baby look)

  10. black-dragon says:

    Hi again. A small correction to two links in my last post for a few web sites.

    http://pacifiersrus.com/

    http://fetware.com/

    Don’t know how those got back to back instead of seperate links there. Yeah just a quick post while on lunch and its time to go back to work. 30 min blink of an eye or snap of a finger and its gone and done.

  11. Blind Freak says:

    Greetings. I have purchased from everything on your list but ABU, not for years though on any of them. Never tried cloth but would really like to. I will also vouch for Gary at XP, a great guy who knows his stuff and isn’t afraid to be honest with his customers. He just purchased ABAIP, a company I’d never even heard of until he bought it, so I’m guessing that will be a good company as well. At any rate, have a pleasant weekend, and stay well.

  12. Matt says:

    I totally agree with Adrian and many of you guys on this subject. I just wanted to let you guys know that dry24/7 is also one of my favorites which I might even like more than the bambinos’ I usually always have both on hand.

  13. Eman says:

    I wanted to also comment on Dry 24/7. They really do make an amazing product. The only thing I think they might be able to improve is the colors. The purpley/pink of the medium/larges is nice but the sky blue or whatever it is for the small/mediums could be something more attractive. Once again this is just my opinion and we all know about those.

    However, one astounding positive I can mention about them is they have a very soft, comfortable fit to them. My Carebear did like them, but didn’t like the blue color. I have a photo of the pink ones on my blog if you’d like to see a reference. They’re in a slide show with other diapers http://herdaddy.wordpress.com/2010/05/07/buying-diapers/

    Hello. Here is a question/thought, as Depends are are mainly everyday incontinent user in mind which means less absorbent, thinner, etc. Sorry I used this line from your post here but it works for this question/thought and that is has anyone noticed at a local Wal-Mart for new sample packs of Depends Underwear that are Printed in solid colors? A six pack sample for $6.00 or so. I got one just out to take a look at them and I think they would make for double up on ones diaper of choice. Just my thought about Depends.

  15. Hinck says:

    There’s nothing quite like the feel of a wet cloth diaper against your skin.
    Every now and then I like to get a cloth diaper as wet as I can and just enjoy that feeling. Of course I use plastic pants over the top so I don’t get everything else wet. Also, if you do this too often you can get a wicked case of diaper rash.
    It’s probably because disposables weren’t around when I was a kid so I was only put in cloth.

  16. Blind Freak says:

    Greetings. Whatever is going on to cause the delay in posting, I sincerely hope things are within normal parameters, and that everybody is doing as well as they desire. Just letting you know I, and others to be sure, are still here. No pressure though. Be well, stay well and live well. Have a pleasant day.

    Hi again to Adrian and fellow readers of this nice blog here. Speaking of supporting companies, what support for people who oraganize an AB/DL Munch?!?!
    I’m thinking of going to one next month for a first time for anything like these. Here is a link to to website of the person hosting one at a Golden Coral restraunt about a hour and a half from where I live and never really knew.

    http://www.liljennie.com/munch.php

    Been so long I think I’ve just for this site by surfing the net and guess I just forgot about it untill recently and all.

    Just thought everyone should know and you never know when Munch at a local restraunt in public instead of at someones house will come around for meeting people in the AB/DL community for something new to do in person.

    Adrian I must say this blog is right on I must say As you know I can’t say good enough things about these products that are offered from this web I have been useing Bambino Classico and secure x-plus every day.
    I’ve had problems in the past with all the other brand names of products and none of them work all that great, And do what they say they can.
    I now have a case of Dry care 24/7 diapers ordered I will see how these work in comparison I will let every one know what I think if you wish.
    I just wish I could get more than one picture on your web sight to show to others
    The features and desighn as well as the fit to give others in such need of these
    products an Idea about the reason what it is we like about this web and to show the
    quality of the products that we like to represent from your web.
    I liked this blog you all take care.

    I have Been N Diapers 4 all of my life, I have never been potty broke. I am keeped as a 2 year old 24/7 365 days a year. Diapers R a very big part of my life and allways will B. I think it is very good when we talk about this stuff sents some of us may not know one diaper from another. The Bottom line is just find the ones that work 4 U and thats it. If U try a diaper and it does not do it 4 U then move on 2 the next 1 untill U find the 1 right 4 U. As far as companies go it’s your MONEY shop were U want. Thanks 4 your time Little Todd.
