We can send people rocketing into space, cure
disease and clone animals, but somehow nobody out there has managed to create a diaper that prevents the cursed
“blow-out” that leaves car seats stained, baby uncomfortable, and Mom scrambling ineffectively to contain
I have tried buying larger diapers, I’ve tried binding the
sticky straps tighter, I even attempted the cloth diaper process for an (admittedly short) time.
I’ve even resorted to avoiding certain foods (prunes, for example) with little to no success.
I live in fear of the dreaded “blow out” in Grocery Aisle 5 or while
browsing for books in the library. Some mornings I delay appointments and errands till the
afternoon, when the likelihood of being hit with a public blowout is more remote. Remote does not mean never, though,
and there is not a lot more unpleasant than being stuck in traffic with a very indignant, messy baby.
I can't find anything on the Web with a definitive solution for diaper
disaster. But I think there has got to be a leak-proof diaper out there somewhere. If someone invents one,
I’m buying a lifetime supply. And if anyone has the ultimate solution for the
prevention of diaper disaste using currently available diaper technology, I (and the customers in Grocery Aisle
5) will be eternally grateful.
