I never wore a diaper as a kid on long car trips, but becuase of overactive bladder as an adult. I'll either wear a pair of protective underwear or aleast a belted undergarment w/ a booster pad now days if I'm going to be in the car for two hours or more. I do wear a big overnight pad in pad & pants system when I go to bed while I'm traveling. I occasionally still deal with bedwetting at night. Most nights before I head to bed I can generally tell if i'm going to need the pad & pant system.

Does the child/teen have a wetting problem when on the trips? Yes? Does the child/teen want to be diapered? Yes? Then, go for it. That would be a lot easier on both the kid and the driver than trying to find restrooms every half hour. It was certainly easier on me and my dad and mom when I was 4-5 years old.

If the child or teen is likely to have a wetting accident, then diapers might be a good idea.

 

On long trips I can fall asleep and then wet. Since it happened once, my mom since makes me wear diapers on long trips. It's better than wetting my pants and the car seat, but it is kind of embarrassing.

My Mom had to put me in a diaper when I was 10 years old. We were staying at her friends home. A new house with new bedding. It was holidays I had a lot of cool drink she knew there was a good possibility of me wetting the bed. She called me into the room she was staying in . She told me to wait I for her and then went out and closed the door. I saw the diaper folded on the bed but had no idea. After a short while she returned with safety pins and told me to take off my pants. Then I knew diaper was for me. I tried to resist, but with one strong pull from my Mom my shorts were off. I was on the bed. The safety pins were out my Mom had them open and gripped in her lips. Yes the diaper was for me. She told me to lie still, as she did not want the pins to hurt me. Brenda, my Moms friend and gave my Mom a pair of water proof with a bit of effort from both my Mom and Brenda they managed to get it on, it just fitted my diaper, they were one of her daughters ones very frilly. I was then allowed to leave the room. When the girls saw me they burst into laughter. I did not know were to look. I went to bed very soon after that I still heard the girls having a good chuckle at my water proof that she once wore. I did wet the diaper, but the bed was safe, it was just as well that my Mom had put me in the diapers. Reply

I am 13 years old and i my mom has me wear a diaper on all road trips of an hour or more. she started this three years ago when i was 10(i know a little old to be having accidents). She did this because we were driving to the beach(about 1hr and 45 mins) and i wet myself because i couldn't hold it. If your child is the kind of child who would wet themselves, then i say go for it. I know there have been times in the past where i was thankful i was wearing one or i could have had wet pants. They don't have to wear the diaper, it's just for emergencies.Trust me, wet pants aren't fun.

I don't agree with this! If your a teen with incontinence, what would happen at school? You wouldn't want to wear one then. What if your getting changed for sports? Someone could see. It would make you even more aware of it. What if you wearing a skirt? You could see the diaper through the skirt. I'm a teen. I wet my self and I don't definetly wouldn't wear a diaper and I don't know where you got the information about 'teens realising that there is nothing wrong'. If I had to wear them, I would feel even more self conscious, have even lower self esteem and feel even worse about it. I agree there is nothing wrong about incontinence but diapers....NO. Reply

Then what's your solution? I am a teen with incontinence, and I wish my mom would get me diapers. I have a problem with spasms in the sphincter that holds urine in the bladder, so I can have accidents completely at random. My mom bought me pads that go under my normal underwear, and I've had an accident 30 minutes after using a restroom and it was still clearly visible on my pants. Reply

I was a bedwetter as a kid and younger teen and have always had an overactive bladder. After making a mess in the tent camping when I was 7 my parents finally had enough and made me wear diapers under my pajamas. I was first put in diapers in the car when I was 8 when we were heading across the mountains and I had had a small accident. After that I wore them for most long trips (2 hours +). I was made to wear them less as I got older with one exception. When I was 13 we went to Mexico and I wore them to the airport, on the plane, and to the hotel. We had one tour as well that was a three hour drive there, a four hour tour, and three hours back. That was the only time I wore diapers for 24 hours and the only time my younger bro and sis were asked to wear them in years(they didn't have bladder problems).

 

My boys (4 and 6) seem to have inherited my problem, we put them in diapers for all longer car trips.

For some, this is not the answer, or at least not currently so-but it is not a matter of punishing or humiliating, and should never be so.

First, I must say that I am amazed at the idea that a parent would be "angry" with a child KNOWN to have a problem with wetting...since it would obviously be no surprise to said parents, there is hardly a reason to be angry at anyone under the circumstances-except, perhaps, themselves.

 

That being said, any answer to the question would depend entirely upon how one approached the child or teen in question, and how one respected that person and their condition.

 

If they've been previously subjected to all of this "anger", then I would have to say that the situation should be handled with sensitivity, to say the least.

 

There are, of course, other alternatives, and other protective underwear, besides diapers, to be considered. Regardless of how anyone who isn't subject to the condition feels, the dignity of the child in question would be the FIRST consideration in the matter, as far as I'm concerned.

 

In any event, I am quite sure the child would appreciate any assistance rendered in a caring, discreet, and private manner.

Yes, if the child has a problem with wetting putting them in diapers would be okay. I would only suggest that you explain why this is neccessary to avoid a fuss. I wore diapers on long car trips up until about 14 and let me tell me it is much better than the embarressment of wetting yourself.

I was the only male child in my family with two younger sisters.  As I grew up, nudity was not an issue as I often paraded around the house wearing nothing more than a pair of sandals.  I usually slept in the nude or at times a sheer nightgown.  It was when I was about 11 years old that I started wetting the bed.  After numerous attempts by my parents to remidy this problem, I was then taken to see a Urologist.  After a quite embarrassing examination and testing, medication was prescribed.  Along with the medication my parents were advised to purchase disposable diapers and recommended that I wear them instead of underpants. 

I was completely humiliated as the Doctor produced a diaper and had me fitted into it.  I stood there in the examination room where I was once completely nude and only somewhat self concience to a state where I was diapered like a small child, with complete embarrassment,  His assistant entering the room with a package which she handed to my mother.  The package was two dozen diapers.  I began to tear up and began softly crying as I stood there in just the diaper.  I was so embarrassed by now being seen by my Doctor's assistant and the fact that she had brought in the package of diapers, knowing full well that I was to be a diapered boy. 

I spent the next three years in various stages of protection.  I didn't wet the bed, as I was always diapered just before bed time.

I wish to add this to my earlier post, as it does relate to my being diapered.  Our family owned a cottage in northern Wisconsin which was a 4 hour drive from our home.  Just prior to our departure (and this became pretty much policy) I was made to use the toilet and afterwards I was diapered after having a coating of diaper rash cream and powder applied to my bottom.  After diapering, I was dressed in shorts, a tee-shirt and sandals.  My sisters thought this was both funny and at the same time thought it was cute to see me in a diaper.  Because of the many towns along our route to the cottage, finding a gas station which had a bathroom was not difficult and we stopped a few times so that I could relieve myself without wetting my diaper.  Mom was really cool about the entire issue, as was Dad.  Mom had a "diaper bag" which really resembled an over-size purse.  In it she kept all of the ointments, creams, powders and naturally my diapers at the ready.  If I had an accident while on the road, I was taken to the back of the van, where I would have to strip nude and take a sponge bath.  This was somewhat embarrassing in that my sisters were witness to this event.  It wasn't the nudity which was embarrassing in front of my sisters, but the bathing and application of the creams and powders to my bottom side. 

 

At the cottage, I pretty much stayed in swim trunks and sandals.  During the evening after dinner and a bath I usually stayed nude, sitting in front of the fireplace listening to music on the radio.  The only issue we had regarding my nudity was the fact that as I was growing older, I also began to have frequent erections.  This pretty much ended my nudity and kept me in a diaper for the following year and a half.

While driving to our cottage in northern Wisconsin, which was a 4 hour drive, I sat in the back seat of our Ford F350 Van wearing nothing more than a diaper, athletic shorts to cover the diaper, a tee-shirt and sandals.  We made frequent stops along the way so that I wouldn't wet myself, even though I was diapered. While this was a bit of an inconvenience, Mom had a diaper bag packed.  The cool part was that it resembled a large purse more than a childs diaper bag.  If I did wet myself, we would stop by many of the roadside rest stops where I would be cleaned up, have ointment and powder applied to my bottom and would then be clad in a fresh diaper.  I was somewhat embarrassed by this procedure, however I also realized that a damp diaper was far more secure than having a wet spot on my outer clothing.  This made road trips more comfortable for all of us.  Being diapered should not be a source of embarrassment but rather a sign of courage.  It takes a well adjusted person to admit that they have a problem and are willing to address it, no matter the results.

When I was 9, our family would take trips to what seemed everywhere.  Many times the road trips were longer than 10 hours and on some occasions over 2 days.  I would be in a tee shirt, shorts and sandals and always wearing a diaper.  In those years, disposable diapers did not exist except for newborns or slightly older children.  I was diapered in the old fashioned cloth diapers with the notorious "diaper pin".  I got used to this procedure as it saved quite a bit of embarrassment if I had an accident.  I also got used to having ointment and powder applied prior to being freshly diapered.  I still to this day love the the scent of Johnson's Baby Powder and used to this day.  The only part of being diapered which annoyed me was the plastic pants over the diaper.  They seemend to make so much noise (I guess which only I heard).  Overall, I'm glad I was diapered on our road trips, I hated a wet spot which definately showed if it occured.

I had to wear diapers to bed until I turned 13. I didn't stop wetting the bed at that age but was allowed to saok the bed instead of wearing diapers. Looking back I hated diapers but hated soaked cold beds just as much, if not more because I would wake up exhausted soaked, change then wake up wet again in the morning. I wish now I was made to stay in the diapers because it ultimately would have made getting my sleep much easier. No teenager wants to wear diapers like a baby but the alternative is soaking whatever I was sleeping on..........like a baby but not a babish behavior, just a health issue which is best dealt with wearing a diaper. I also had to wear diapers on longer car trips because of leaking issues, not to mention I would wet myself anytime I fell asleep. I agree with many posts here it's far better than having wet smelly pants on. I also had a complete urologist check up at age 12 which was totally embarassing, naked with a tube inserted into my bladder. And the results showed my neurogenic bladder issue was not anything I could control SO diapers were the best alternative. I would say if your child is challenged in this area life, cleanliness, and control can best be achieved wearing a diaper... NO BIG DEAL!

This may sound weird but actually there are alot of teenagers that would like to wear nappies/diapers like a baby, infact there are many teenagers that would like to do more babyish things than just wear nappies, having a dummy or/and a bottle for example, it is also not just teenagers that feel like this there are some adults that would like to regress aswell. If you are wondering how I know this it is because I am on of these teenagers (infact just to be honest as I write this I actually have my dummy in and my parents don't even know this is how i feel) , teen babies as we say, and you probably think it's weird but that is one of the problems with being a TB/AB you aren't accepted by other people because it is considered weird and unnatural.

Hello,

 

I have three children, 9, 11 and 14 and we all wear pull up diapers on long trips.

 

We don't think of them as diapers, we just use them instead of regular underwear and never go in them for convenience - we stop as often as possible.

 

It simply makes sense and a less stressful trip.

 

If one of us "has an accident" we just get another pull up and change it ourselves.

I hated to wear diapers on a long road trip. But before we left, my Mom always got me into her room, and got me to pull my shorts off, get onto the bed and in no time, I was securely pinned by 3 safety pins into a diaper and then came the water proof. My shorts were a bit small to cover the diaper and water proof, so it was just my and shirt and diaper and and we were ready to go. There is something about a car that puts you sleep. Even when you are 12 years old. I always wet the diaper while asleep in the car but I could wait for the next stop before getting a change. My Mom would ask if I needed to have a fresh diaper. I was always a bit embarrassed to admit that I had wet my diaper. But it was no problem for her to remove the wet diaper and re pin me into the fresh diaper. Which was done in the ladies room at the next stop. My shirt just covered my diaper but a remember hearing a young girl in the line behind us asking her Mom if she could see that I was in a diaper. All I heard from her Mom was shush it is fine, yes I can see, I heard her giggle as we left the shop. I was glad to get back into the car. Reply

That's horrible! Unless this child/teen can only hold it for an hour or less (in which case something is seriously wrong), how hard is it to stop for a two minute break? I can't imagine anything more humiliating and degrading than having your teen wear a diaper. If siad child/teen is all for it, fine, but if they have a shred of doubt, that's just wrong. You can't force a teen to wear a diaper.

We all had to wear diapers. I was 12 or 14 it was not a problem. But my bum felt so big. Walking in the diaper made me waddle. I remember bending over looking at some toys on a shelf in a shop. As I crouched down to look at the toys I felt at POP!!!, as one of the pins in my diaper came loose. My Mom was in another section of the shop, as I walked to try to find her, the diaper on the left side started to show out of my shorts. I tried my best to tuck it in. But eventually as I walked the diaper started to creep out my shorts. I was worried about the pin, and was so embarrassed. One of the sales ladies helped me find my Mom. My Mom got me to a ladies change room and onto a table were she re pinned and secured my diaper for the rest of the trip. I was so embarrassed, she knew I was wearing a diaper she was a nice young girl who was most helpful to find my Mom to me and as we walked out the shop she gave me a big smile and a wave. Reply

dont know if this helps but still currently have my 13 year old son in diapers all the time. Used to be just at night because hes a bedwetter but i recently decided to keep him in them all the time (i dont make him wear them to school though) but it includes when going out and yes this includes a swim diaper at the beach or swimming poll because its a lot easier and it makes him behave better and i dont have to worry about any accidents he may or may not have, he hates it and it makes him feel very babyish but he understands why its needed.

This seems wrong at age13 to be 24/7 as a punishment. I can understand if he needs them and would otherwise wet. If it for other reasons tpunished or to torment him,then the idea of diapers are wrong. They are an article of clothing to help improve the quality of life and maintain sanitary conditions if needed.

When I was 12 I started to stay at my friend called mick house with his mum Angela and sometimes his sister Michelle who was 18 who was at university would come and stay for about a week. I would stay there for most of the holidays as my mum was working as a lawyer so she was constantly away. Angela would put me and Mick in nappies at night so we didnt the bed even though we rarely wet the bed. I was really embarreested about this because she could see my willie and I was 12 and just about to start puberty, but she would just say you're only 12 and i can hardly see you're willie as it's small.which was true as I was a small boy and so was mick so we could both get into todderlers nappies. After I had been staying there for about a fortnight we were going on holiday for a week to the seaside but Mick and I both wet the bed the morning we were leaving so Angela said right you're both going in nappies for the week and proceeded to take our wet nappies off and put us in clean ones for the day. We then left on a two hour trip to the seaside. When we arrived it was about 4pm and Angela took us to our room in the hotel and changed mick as he had wet his nappy in the trip there. We then unpacked and went down for dinner. Angela ordered us two small kids meals. As we ordering the Laughlin family who were on of the family's we were going on holiday with arrived. There was begona the mum who is good friends with Angela, ellie the oldest daughter who was 14, abi the middle daughter who was about 7 and maddie the youngest daughter who was about 4. The laughlins then ordered and the food soon arrived and we started eating. After we had finished it was about 5 so there was no one else in the hotel restaurant and all of us kids were running round round the restaurant. The waitress didn't seem to mind then I did a poo in my nappy and Angela and everyone else could smell it. Angela then took me to the ladies bathroom with begona and maddie as maddie had been put in a nappy as it was quite a long journey. Begona told Ellie too look after Mick and abi and we went to the ladies toilets. Angela then placed me on the changing mat in ladies toilets and begona took maddies trousers and nappy off while maddie was standing up and put a pair of knickers on maddie. Angela then changed me and put cream and powder on my bum and put a new diaper on me. We then soon left and went back to our room where we were all staying. Begona and Angela were sleeping in a double with Mick on a side bed coming off it next to Angela where Mick was sleeping. Ellie and abi were also sharing a bed with a side bed next to ellie where I was sleeping and maddie was in a single bed. Reply

Diapers arnt as bad as alot of people think they are. There are more good reasons about diapers then bad. Im 16 and i wear diapers all the time i even have a gf who wears them as well. Sure it was nerve wracking wearing them to school and public but i got over it and wearing diapers actually helps with your confidence level and it helps with school bcus you can pay attention more easily in class then having to wait to use the washroom. But thats just me. As for trips and car rides i do suggest that they wear diapers bcus 9/10 times a child will wet themself and make a mess unless they wear a diaper and ts easier on the parents as well.

Well I guess if the child/teen is okay with it. I have no controll over my bladder, for my mum used heavy illegal drugs & she owned a Meath lap & I was her test subject, she injected me with many things that made me scream in pain, biting my self was a good way to muffle the sound but I ended up covered in blood...she torched me over & over to the point I trust almost no one & over time I ended up with nerve damage, it's hard to walk some times, I have no feeling in my right arm, parts of my back & internal functions a bit messed up. So I use pull-ups during the day & tape-ups at night, it sucks & there isn't a day that passes me by as I fantasise about being normal & wishing everything bad in my life was just a nightmear...

My son is 14 years old and still wets his bed and has a weak bladder so i still put him in a diaper on a trip if its going to last for over an hour, same if we are out and not likely to be near a restroom. When we go on vacations, its normally just easier to keep him diapered the whole time. He doesn't like it but its better than accidents and i just change his diaper at a reststop. My son doesnt like it and its embarrassing for him to be put in diapers at 14 years old but i think its for the best.

My mom put me in diapers on our way to Arizona when I was 13 and it was a good thing too because at one point I had to go number 2 really bad and when my dad hit a bump it all came out so diapers are a good idea unless you want poopy crying 13 year girls Reply

I think it's Ok if there is a reason for the teen to be diapered.  I am 16 yr old teen boy and I am diapered fulltime because I am a sleepwetter and wet anytime I doze off or fall asleep.   So my folks keep me diapered at all times and this includes travelling in the car on long road trips.

My daughter is 8 years old and is a severe bedwetter. She wiill also wet while sleeping at any point, including day time napping. So on a recent trip I had her in diapers while driving to out destination, it was from Massachusetts to South Carolina. While my daughter didn't want to wear the diapers at first, it worked out very well. As long as the you don't plan on or force the child to continually use the diapers, I don't see a problem with diapereing them for long raod trips. Try your best to stop when needed and give the child plenty of opportunties to use bathrooms along the way. In my case, the diaper was put on for when she fell asleep in the car or got tired and would likely wet herself. It was used for "in case" it happens. I don't see any reason not to put a child or teen in a diaper on long raod trips as long as a diaper can be helpful and is warranted.
