Cloth Diapers And Plastic Pants For Me!I wore cloth diapers with plastic ( usually called rubber pants ) pants over them often. This was in the mid to late forties.I was a bedwetter up through my teens and continued wearing them as it was better than waking up to a soaked bed. Ironically, I need them now, but also like them because it reminds me of the security of my early childhood. I generally wear a gauze or birdseye diaper covered by vinyl pull-up or snap-on ( popper to you in the UK ) panty during the day. At night, I need the added protection of a double cloth diaper covered with pull-up plastic pants one size larger than the daytime plastic panty. I prefer the translucent cloudy or frosty "white" plastic pants. I use three inch diaper safety pins with the regular smaller baby diaper pins near the leg openings. I prefer the gauze as it doesn't need to be tightened by readjusting the pins periodically during wear. I've made my own diapers from birdseye and cotton gauze material I buy, but often buy the readily available flat or contoured cloth diapers. I've used diapers made of toweling or flannel on occasion. it's the softness of the cotton birdseye and gauze diapers that I find is so soft and comfortable to the touch.
My wife will sometimes pull on my plastic pants at night. She'll pat my diaper enclosed bum afterwards. I do love it when she does this. I'm a lucky man for sure.
