Hi All!

Has anyone used a pouch cover? I found a nice one through Nu-Hope. It is called Nu-comfort Cloth Cover. I've never used it or seen it in person, but it looks nice. I know there are a couple of companies out there that make pouch covers - Ladybug, etc.

I'm looking for companies - web addresses to order a couple. Any recommendations?

Thank you!

I've used a few different types of covers but didn't like them cos they added bulk to my bag under my clothes. A much simpler idea (if you're planning on using a cover to stop your skin from sweating from the plastic of the bag) is to purchase some baby bibs. Tied them around the bag and put them between your bag and your skin, this will absorb any sweat.

You can always make them yourself (or have a friend who sews make some for you). Just use a bag as a template. You can use up any scraps of material you may have lieing around and it's much much cheaper than buying them ready made.

Failing that, there's a few companies listed at http://www.ostomates.org/links/access.html where you can order them over the web.

Good luck.

Shaz032,

That is a wonderful idea about the baby bibs. I've been using little sheets of cloth that I've cut from old pillow cases, husband's t-shirts, etc. They work fine, but look cheap.

I found a website called Pouch Pals. She sells the covers for 6 - $10.50. Some of hers have lace and frilly stuff, which I don't need all of that. Just keep it simple, especially in that area.

Thanks! : )

My mom used to like to sew - so she made me some pouch covers back in the 80's out of men's tshirt material. Worked fine, but dont use anything anymore. Once in a while, If I'm gonna be mowing, etc, I place an old, thin washcloth between my skin and the pouch. Keep in mind that I fold mine so it does not extend beyond my panties. Usually I don't use anything tho. The Convatc Surfit 2 piece hs a cloth-like barrier between the pouch and the skin and works fine for me

The Coloplast pouches I use have a flesh colored, soft cotton cloth covering already on them, so I've never used a pouch cover, too.

So, would you prefer the ribbons or the hearts?  Gotta be sure that Santa knows exactly which one to get for you "IF" you are a good girl!
