The Diaper Wearers count in my house is currently 2: The just-turned-three-year-old-who-thinks-potty-training-is-a-bore and the just-born-three-week-old-who-thinks-diapers-are-free.
It’s a whole, poo ridden, diaper changing partay at our house…
When Huggies-the-Super-Generous offered a wee little SMB Contributor some Little Snugglers for free in exchange for an honest assessment, I was like, “YAAAS!” These are the ‘creme de la creme’ of diapers, and it’s no prob to tell you why.
They’re breathable and super soft. The teeny sizes (N-2) boast this “GentleAbsorb” liner that does a powerhouse job of wicking moisture away from the littlest bums (aww!). My newborn appreciated the umbilical cord cut-out, and the color-changing wetness indicator takes out the guesswork for us foggy-headed, sleep deprived mamas. Huggies’ breathable outer cover means no sweaty, sticky baby/toddler skin, and I loooove knowing that all sizes are fragrance and lotion free. Plus, the cute, classic Disney graphics are fun for slightly older kiddos.
Best of all: That pocketed back waistband means no poops up the back!! We’ve all been there. Admit it… You let the non-Huggies-wearing, sleeping newborn lie, tuning out the audible toots, only to later scoop up said Sweetie Pie and find horror of horrors: he’s poo’d up to his neck. And out the sides. Like molten lava.
Suddenly your to-do list involves not just a diaper change, but a full on bath + laundry + bleach + keeping the dog away as you whisk the poor babe at full arm-extention distance to the nearest sink. Admit it.
And for this reason, if nothing else, I do hereby solemnly pledge my undying love and loyalty to you, Huggies. Mama ain’t got time to shower herself — much less to be giving unplanned baths to the babe.
*Bonus alert!!* Huggies diapers are eligible for Sam’s Club pickup.
“Sam’s Club pickup? What’s that?” you ask? So slick! It’s a free service that allows Sam’s Club members to order online and pick up in club at your ease and convenience. You just:
