I used the little packets as my output has been slightly more solid, and therefore tried to use that to ease the contents out of the bag when emptying.  about 4 hours after when napping, the entire wafer was lifting up, and the "oil/moistureizer" was running down my sides ahead of the pooh.  So far, we have stopped using that, and the wafer seems to be holding in place.
I am changing every 4 days religiously, so hopefully that will also signal a good regimen.
Has anybody else had this problem?

I have used the packets but they seem to make the smell when emptying much worse. Did you find this to be true for you?? They did help with the ease of emptying though.

Sorry you've had a leak. No fun.

I didn't think that Adapt stuff did much of anything. My output tends to be on the thick side too, what I do (at home anyway) is keep a small plastic cup or bottle in the bathroom, and prior to emptying, I pour some water into the pouch, press lightly around on it, and then empty. Everything comes out easy, and then the pouch feels clean and lighter to me.

I have even started carrying around an empty water bottle for when I am using a public bathroom (which I toss out afterwards), just because I have gotten used to being able to empty quickly and easily.

You'll find your own tricks in time, hang in there.
