Properly taping up a diaper is not something you will do on your first try. It can take a lot of practice, especially if you are applying the diaper to someone else. Now that we've established where one should situate a diaper, the next question to ask is where one should begin taping from. Is it best to start with the top tapes or the bottom ones?
- What we have found is that you get a much better fit when applying the top tapes first, followed by the bottom two. This way, you can ensure that the diaper is centered correctly and then adjust it from there. It also helps to ensure a more comfortable fit as the bottom tapes are usually closer to the leg area.
- The next thing to consider is how tight the diaper should be. While it's important to ensure the diaper is snug, it's equally important not to tape it too tight. Taping it too tightly can cause skin irritation and other discomforts. A good rule of thumb is to have a finger's width of space between the diaper and the skin. This ensures that the diaper is snug but not too tight, and allows for some breathing room.
- Another important aspect to consider is the angle of the tabs. The tabs should be angled slightly downward when taping them onto the front of the diaper. This helps to ensure that the diaper fits snugly around the waist and helps prevent leaks. If you find that the tabs are angled too far down, you can easily readjust them by lifting up the end of the tab and retaping it to a different spot.
- When it comes to taping adult diapers, practice makes perfect. It may take some trial and error to find the right taping technique that works for you or your loved one. However, with time and patience, you will get the hang of it and be able to properly tape up an adult diaper in no time.
Properly taping up adult diapers can make all the difference in ensuring they fit snugly and securely. With a little practice, you'll soon be an expert at taping adult diapers.
