Ostomy Devices . . . .
. . . with an Ileostomy
These flexible wafers may be the best fit that I've tried. They seem comfortable and secure to hold about 1/2 lb (8 fl oz) or 300 ml.

The ileostomy fluid brings a pH level that makes sealing that stoma crucial. About the first minute of adhesion needs constant, uniform pressure, and here's the tool for that.
This helps that seal last 3× longer. We apply heated uniform pressure against body around the stoma.
Heat the Tool with water in a large coffee cup.

Step 2
Hollister Viewing Cover needs a firm tug.
⇒ Preheat the Tool in Cup of Hot Water
    — Shower Option HERE —
⇒ Dry all, apply Powder where needed
⇒ Apply Skin Barrier Wipe
⇒ pat the stoma surface DRY at last moment to avoid its mucus on barrier.
⇒ Attach Barrier to Skin around stoma
Touch a yellow pad
to see behind it
Step 3
Be sure stoma is centered.
⇒ Apply Heated Tool over stoma.
⇒ Press Tool toward the wafer without moving, 30+ seconds.
⇒ Now Attach Tape** Border edges

*Ring may be optional. It helps seal between stoma and Cut-Out.  The opening in ring MUST BE slightly smaller than Cut-Out to avoid trapping fluids.
When using a ring, a heated Tool is very beneficial. Thicker the ring, more heat and/or longer time works better.

**Tape border is the last step.  The separated tape border helps smooth attachment, and it allows applying pressure with the Tool about 20 seconds sooner.
