Belts for kids who have a Vesicostomy? (A hole from their bladder to the outside of their body)
I’ve prepared several belts for the families who were interested in testing them for me, but one family backed out after I’d already completed their belt, unfortunately. Because I don’t want that product to go to waste, I’m HOPING to find another family who’s interested in testing out this awesome product. Their child would need to measure approx 22-23 inches around their waist.
Please let me know asap! Thanks
I’ve been using the scraps from the Doctor Who, Firefly, and Star Wars Mei Tai carriers to make fun stuff for Teddy. 🙂 A few weeks ago, I decided we needed a new syringe holster.
There’s a little bit of patchwork there, since the pieces I had weren’t QUITE big enough, but I like it. It’s Doctor Who on the outside and Firefly on the inside. 🙂
Want your own syringe holster? They’re SO handy if you have to give liquid meds when away from home. (They, um, also work great for markers, makeup brushes, etc.) LemonDrops can set you up!
I have been really excited about this particular project. It’s not often you get to create something that never existed before, to fill a very big need.
Introducing the Vesi Belt.
A Vesicostomy is a surgical procedure that allows the bladder to empty out through a hole below the belly button.
The stoma (hole) is just open, allowing urine to drain out constantly. This is a good thing medically for those who need it, but you can imagine what a diapering and clothing nightmare it turns out to be.
Many families buy giant size disposables and adapt them to fit their babies or toddlers, or double diaper with disposables. This is usually a less than satisfactory solution, as a quick web search will show. Almost nobody likes this solution.
And what about families who want to use cloth diapers? They have had no options.
Until now. That’s why I’m so excited about this.
Please note, if you don’t already own cloth diapers that you like, or if you prefer a one-piece, custom system, I can always adapt regular pocket style or fitted style diapers and covers to be extra tall for your child with a Vesi.
Vesi Belts will be available when LemonDrops gets ready to open this fall.
