I don't wear premium diapers and usually limit my wearing to about 3 hours in the early morning when I get up around 6 or 7am. After about 3 hours I'm pretty wet and need to remove my diaper. When I go out of town for the day Christmas shopping or running errands I will be diapered all day and usually wear plastic pants over my disposable diaper. They have saved my pants many times as by the time I go to change my diaper, it's usually soaked and leaking. Maybe 4 houts max in a wet diaper. I rarely poop my diaper because I hate the smell and clean up, but when I do I usually change withing 15 minutes. I have been thinking of messing my diaper more and more though.
