Preparing for travel can be stressful and hectic as it is, but when you’ve got an ostomy there are a few extra things that you’ll want to be aware of.
Once in a while, I come across an ostomy accessory that significantly improves my quality of life. The ComfortBelt is one of those products, and I’m excited to be bringing you this review.
It may come as a surprise to you, but did you know that your ostomy supplies can and do expire? Yup, but there’s an easy way to find out how “fresh” your products are, and in this article I’ll be explaining what to look for.
When you’ve got an ostomy bag hanging off your abdomen, you want it to be comfortable and feel as if it isn’t there. As it fills, it’ll start to pull and feel heavy, so many ostomates use accessory belts for added support. I’ve been a fan of those little 1″ wide belts, but they had a few shortcomings. The company Nu-Hope aims to change that, and has created a refreshing new type of belt, which they call the Nu-Comfort belt.
I’m a big fan of stoma guards, because they can come in handy in so many situations, but their design often creates a few challenges.
In this review, I’ll be looking at a unique stoma guard called the StomaDome.

In this post, I’ll give you a run down of my 2015 travel kit with tips on how to put together your own.

While many ostomates aren’t looking to protect their stoma from impact, a stoma guard can still be an extremely useful accessory when it comes to seat belts and clothing. I’ve worn the StomaShield guard for nearly two months, and I’m excited to bring you this review.
There’s a group of ostomate who love decorating their pouches; Be it with patterned duct tape or pouch covers. I haven’t ventured into any DIY projects (at least not yet), but I love seeing what others make for themselves. I came across a photo of a nice looking ostomy pouch cover on Twitter that caught my attention.
