I'm a little ticked right now after having my third leakage experience with the same product.  Am I allowed to say which company makes a wafer that cannot hold up to my working, bathing, sleeping, living habits?  Grrrrrrrrrr.  I wish I could take all the best features of the three major ostomy products and create the perfect bag.  Of course, it would be the perfect bag for me. 
Here is the story:  I was having a lovely meal at the Olive Garden, holding my best friends baby when I felt something wet on my leg.  I thought maybe her diaper had leaked and was soaking into my capris.  No, oh no, it wasn't the baby, it was ME!!!  All down the front of my violet capris and a white shirt.  I just had to wrap the tiny cloth napkin as best I could around my front and make an escape to the car where I drove straight home for a shower. 
Thank God my boyfriend grabbed the tab and was able to get a ride home.

I probably would've continued holding the baby as I walked through the restaurant and let everyone think that her diaper leaked on me! tongue

I agree with churchlady. Blame it on the baby!

I do feel for you. The only time I had a big blow out was when I was trying a one piece that I hadn't used before. I have never had a leak with the Hollister 2 piece New Image Extended Wear system.
