If you're eating more, you have more stool which means it's eroding the paste quicker. That's why I love the Eakin Seals, especially with an ileostomy which tends to be a little acidic, they hold up great.
Are you using a durahesive wafer? With an ileostomy, durahesive (which is what the moldables are made of) is recommended, it holds up better than their other products. An ileostomate has less formed, more erosive stool than a colostomy.
LillyIlly, is the flange size for the size small the same size as the medium? I think I need to change, but have a stockpile of pouches. I tried and tried to use the product without the Eakins, and finally my ET said, why aren't you using Eakins, you'll get much better wear without leaks, lol. Anyway, they're expensive, was trying to save money, but it didn't work, must be my belly shape.

Numerous surgeries, permanent ostomy, adverse reactions to Remicade, finally off of Prednisone, hoping for a long remission from this last surgery.
