Hi Daniel, how old are you, and do you just have to wear nappies at night or do you have to wear them 24/7 like I do?
I'm 13 and I've got Cerebral Palsy, which has meant that the connection between my brain and my bladder don't work, so I've never been out of nappies. As for the best nappies for a teenager, my mum has tried all sorts. Unfortunately disposables like Tena briefs are no use to me cause I'm allergic to the gel they use in them and it gives me a painful and itchy rash. Also they're no good at night cause I tend to sleep on my side and they leak. They would be OK for wearing in the daytime if it wasn't for my allergy. Do your Abriform nappies leak?
What with the allergy and leaking problems from disposables, I now only wear pin-on terry nappies with plastic pants day and night. They are a bit bulky, so I wear loose fitting trousers or shorts during the day, but being bulky don't really matter when you're in bed.
Have you been to the doctor to find out why you wet?
Richard.

Hi Richard, im 19 and been in nappies all my life like you and i just worked out how manny nappies i have sent to the land fill.
i get through 5 a day so that 5*365*19 which = 32,885 nappies uesed by my 19th birthday.
wish i could use re-usables but the NHS dont suply them yet and that would be a lot of washing for me to do.
just thought you would be interested to know that.

Martex Male Washable Absorbent Incontinence Boxer Shorts are good for my 'wetting' :)If you guys 'wet' often then these shorts are for you.I can play sports in them and no-one is the wiser.Btw I don't work for the company or anything,I just wanted to share what works for me :)

Hi Dean, I think you got your sums wrong, cause 5x365x19=34,675.LOL. Even that number may be too low, cause it don't allow for leap years, and when you were a baby you probably wore more nappies every day.
If you just wet your nappies, then re-usable pin-on terry nappies with plastic pants would be ideal, apart from the need to wash them, but as you also poo in your nappies, then disposables are probably the best for you.

Iíve been thinking about this question concerning what the best nappies for teenagers are, and Iíve got my own ideas. Iíve tried not to let my own needs influence what I think, cause for me with my allergy to the gel in disposables, together with the fact that I tend to sleep on my side where disposables donít have any absorbent stuff so that they leak, means that theyíre no use for me.
For teens who sleep on their backs and donít wet much, I suppose that pull-ups like Dri-nites or tape-on disposables may be OK in bed, but for teens who wet a lot at night like I do, then pin-on terry nappies (especially with an added terry soaker pad), and always with plastic pants are ideal, cause they last all night without leaking, so you donít have to change your nappy during the night, and they're comfortable to wear.
I donít know what American pin-on cloth diapers are like, but I suppose you can wear them with added soaker pads just like you can with terry nappies, so for American teens who wet a lot in bed, theyíre probably the best diapers to wear with plastic pants.
For those teens who wet a lot during the day as well as at night, the best bet would be to wear good absorbent tape-on disposable nappies that arenít too bulky (such as Tena briefs), so that they wonít look bulky when wearing trousers or shorts. If you can wear underwear that covers your nappy completely, then itís not so bad if your underwear shows slightly as when your nappy shows a bit.
Cause of my allergy to disposables, I still have to wear terry nappies and plastic pants under my trousers or shorts during the day, but my mum has made some special underwear for me so that my nappy and plastic pants donít show at the leg and waist opening of my shorts.
These suggestions apply mainly to teenage boys, but if any girls who wet night and day (such as Ash) have any other suggestions it would be good to post them here, like what are the best nappies/diapers to wear under skirts or dresses.
Whether you are a teenage boy or a teenage girl, itís always best to use a good nappy rash cream with any type of nappy to avoid nasty itchy rashes as much as possible.
I hope these suggestions are useful.
Richard.
