Mama needs dipes too!
A mama recently emailed us about her situation, seeking your thoughts and experiences:
Ready for the whole diaper story in our house? The babies and toddlers aren't the only ones wearing 'em. There is also a stack of what the kids and I call "run dipes," which I must wear when I go running if I don't want urine soaking my pants, trickling down my legs and into my shoes. And even when I dutifully wear my dipe, sometimes I need two! And yes, I pee RIGHT before I leave the house. I will NEVER know where it is hiding, why it waits until I've just left the driveway to come out.
I've always someone who wet my pants laughing, jumping rope, sneezing - aerobics was totally out. But after two kids, my, my.... My sister-in-law (3 kids) just had surgery as it was so bad for her (and she's not the type to take that lightly), and another friend made the very fortunate, accidental discovery recently that those menstrual cups (diva?) seem to serve a double purpose and stop the urine, too. Does anyone else share this predicament? Whta do you do? Mamas, I need ideas, tips, tricks, to keep the urine right where it belongs. I'd rather it were just the kids in this house who wear the diapers.
