Diapers. Oh my goodness. The never ending cycle of diapers that seems to never end when you have a baby that is stallion diapers. I am a first time mom and I really had no idea the abundance of diapers that were soon to be my reality for the next many years.
When I was pregnant, one of our close friends that my husband and I used to work with threw a baby shower for us that was a diaper shower, meaning that the gifts from our friends were to be just diapers. I thought that was a cute idea and I appreciate the idea of a “diaper shower,” but boy did I not understand how wonderful it was to have the “diaper shower,” until I was elbow deep into mommy-hood.
These babies and their diapers! I had read that I needed a lot of diapers for one day, but you don’t really know until you’re in the middle of it. We received a TON of diapers for our shower because a lot of our friends were parents already and knew the value of gifting diapers, but with all the diapers we received in all different sizes, we ran out of our stash in about 4-5 months. That is a ton of diapers to make it through those first months, but then what? This babe is going to be in diapers for at least 1.5 – 2.5 more years.
It is so important to find a diaper that will last through the night and hold the leaks. Believe me, we tried all sorts of different diaper brands and diaper wipes, we know what works for us and what lasts and the most important thing for me is handling those big blowouts better than others, and allowing my baby to sleep thought the night by absorbing the wetness away from her skin so she can sleep soundly. Huggies literally #hugsthemess and keeps it where it should be, in the diaper, not running down the legs, or making my sweet baby feel uncomfortable.
One of our favorite brands is Huggies diapers and Huggies wipes. They fit all my must-have’s for a quality diaper. When having to buy so many diapers in a month, getting any coupons to save on diapers are always appreciated. Another tip you may not know is that Family Dollar sells Huggies diapers and wipes?
