Raise your hand if diaper changing your squirmy toddler can be a challenge at your house!  I’ve always wanted to try slip-on diapers from Huggies because of how impossible it is to change my squirrel of a second child.  He doesn’t sit still for a moment, and when he’s really on one, I have to practically sit on him to hold him down for a change.

The moment these Huggies Slip-On Diapers arrived, I think “Little Brother” could tell these were something special!  Packages at the door are rarely for him, so when special diapers with Mickey on them showed up, it was like Christmas!

We’ve never tried these before, so from the get-go, with the first diaper on his little body, “Little Brother” was ALL over these!  He calls these slip-on diapers his ‘underwear’, and I can tell he felt like he had graduated a step, even though they are really just diapers.

We’ve been using these exclusively for almost a week now and have experienced absolutely no leaks, even for my stomach-sleeper!  These diapers utilize a ®LeakLock®System with a long-lasting core.

The fit is perfect.  There is a good seal on all sides–around the waist as well as the leg openings.  My boy is somewhat on the thin and scrawny side, so I’m glad to see that these provide a good seal for all body types.

If there is a poopy mess to clean, you can always release the diaper from the flaps on the side so that a quick and easy change is possible without having to pull all the mess down your child’s legs first.  Plus, these tabs make it easy to wrap up the diaper when you’re done.

“Little Brother” has not ran from a single diaper change since we started using these.  He loves that he can help pull them up, and seeing Mickey every time never gets old.  I definitely would recommend these to moms with standing/newly-walking babies!  They are premium diapers.  They seem to hold more fluid than typical store-brand diapers, without being more bulky, and the slip-on feature is fantastic.

Take my advice and try these out!  You can go HERE to get a $1 off coupon.  If you share this link to three friends, you can save $1.50!  Note that you’ll have to register with Huggies.com prior to obtaining the coupon.

We’re (unfortunately) down to our last few weeks of having only one child in diapers before we venture into having two boys wearing diapers, so we really need something that’s going to work.  Since it’s been so warm and we’ve been outside so much this summer, my boys drink a lot of water and eat a lot of popsicles to stay hydrated — this extra liquid, though, can create problems with my two-year-old during the night and usually leads to some extra laundry for either myself or my husband in the morning.

We were excited to work with Double Duty Divas and Luvs to feature the new Luvs with NightLock, and I was especially excited to try diapers that would have extra absorption for nighttime wear!  Luvs with NightLock isn’t available on retailer shelves nationwide until September 16th, but we were provided an exclusive sneak peak at the product before it became available!

We tried moving up a size for diapers during the night, but my little guy is pretty slim and they didn’t work very well — we tried these Luvs with NightLock in size 5 (one size larger than he usually wears), though, and they fit snugly and didn’t move to create a rash or chafing.  The Leak Barrier Leg Gathers kept the diapers from drooping, and we were happy with the softness of the diapers especially since they’re worn all night for 10-12 hours.

Luvs with NightLock offers the ultimate in overnight protection for baby AND a good night ahead for Mom with: 

Our largest absorbency area EVER to help lock wetness away, even overnight, and locks away wetness better than Huggies Snug & Dry – meaning less leaks at night for baby and more time for mom to enjoy those nighttime hours, however she sees fit

Leak Barrier Leg Gathers to ensure leaks are kept away from PJs and in our diaper – where they belong! 

Two new diaper designs per box – same funky Luvs monkey, new fun designs 

The Luvs Money Back Guarantee (we feel so strongly about our diapers, we’ve guaranteed them!) 

Plus, beginning September 16, 2013, to coincide with Luvs with Night Lock appearing on shelves, for the  first time EVER, Luvs will be offering print-at-home coupons Luvs.com. 

September 16th will also see Luvs releasing a new series of our beloved “First Kid/Second Kid” commercials on our YouTube page (www.youtube.com/luvsdiapers)

FINIS Reusable Swim Diaper {GIVEAWAY}

So here’s another thing you should know about me: I’m cheap. Or, to put it nicely, I’m frugal. But however you say it, the truth is I HATE wasting money. And the biggest waste of money in our house right now is on disposable diapers! My 18-month old still poops about 6 times a day and every time I change her diaper I tell her she’s literally pooping on her college education fund. I know that cloth diapers would be a better option both financially and environmentally, but I never had enough money to put down for the initial investment on a ton of diapers (and, let’s be honest, I never had the desire to deal with cloth diapers, either). However, when I learned that they now make reusable swim diapers,  I thought “Here’s something I can handle!”

FINIS, maker of performance swim wear and swim products for adults, also has a great kids line. They make great goggles (at least according to some reviews on their site), swimsuits,  fins, and other water confidence products. How cute would your daughter look learning to swim in this mermaid monofin?!

FINIS also makes awesome reusable Swim Diapers. They come in two patterned options or three solid colors ( pink, lime green, or royal blue).

The sizing goes from 3-6 months (9-15 lbs.) all the way up to a 4T (38-45 lbs.). I chose the Pink Bubble pattern and got a size Large for my (petite) 18-month old. It fits well, maybe even a bit big, so I’d suggest rounding your child’s weight/age down rather than up when choosing your size since you want it to fit snugly against your child’s skin.  In case that made no sense, here’s a sizing chart to help you out:

FINIS_size chart

According to their website, the inside has a soft woven polyester lining and the outside features UPF 50+ to keep UV rays away from sensitive areas. All materials are Phthalates and PVC free, so you don’t have to worry about any weird chemicals affecting your kids. I took my daughter out in the pool and let her play with her water table in the diaper, and both times it seemed to work just fine. It never ballooned up like a normal diaper would, and it stayed in place and kept her protected. It fit great under a bathing suit but could be worn alone with just a rash guard for a top as well. Naturally, the girl who poops 6 times a day never did poop in the diaper when I needed her to, so I don’t know how well it holds in solid waste, but my guess would be it works just fine. I’ve washed it a few times and the colors have stayed and the elastic is still in tact. The best part is the price: $9.99 for a diaper that you can use all summer long! When you consider that a package of disposable swim diapers is around $7-10, and that maybe only lasts you through one month of summer (at least here in Southern California),  that’s a super fantastic deal! And check out how cute this little bum looks in that diaper:
