There are some things that I actually miss about the whole diaper phase, but let me start off with what I DON’T miss:
- The cost – hands down! I felt like my paycheck was supporting our diaper bill!
- The occasional blow-out – I remember pinching my nose on several occasions.
- Trying to pin the kids down with one leg as they would kick and cry – what a work-out!
- Changing the boys in gross places like public restrooms – ick.
- The whole potty training phase, which was about a year long process!
When I look at my boys now, it reminds me how fast they really do grow. Don’t get me wrong, I love the stage that they are in, but I do miss when they were itty bitty.
My favorite memory would be after bath time. I’d lay them on the bed, massage lotion onto their tiny bodies, sing them songs, and change their diaper. Then I’d pick them up (before I put their clothes on) and I would just hold them close to me. I loved inhaling their sweet baby smell – I mean there’s nothing better than that.
It was our time together and it was very special to me.
Now that they are older, they are in go go go mode! I tell them all the time that it doesn’t matter how old they are or how tall they get, they’ll always be my babies.
I was a big fan of Pampers and it was the main brand of diapers I used with both kids. They are continuously making improvements to their lines and I wanted to share a few with you.
Pampers Swaddlers is now available in size 3 & 4 at Acme. Swaddlers 3 and 4 will include both the wetness indicator and absorb-away mesh liner that us moms have come to love in the smaller Swaddlers sizes.
In addition, Pampers wants to provide mom visual cues of comfort and protection, therefore they are adding an umbilical notch on Size 1 & 2.
Pampers Cruisers continues to provide the freedom to play with their Best Dryness and Fit. Pampers is still focused on offering their BEST FIT with Cruisers; Pampers is introducing a new leg cuff material to offer a better barrier against fluid while keeping the cuff material breathable.
Pampers has also made changes to their Baby Dry line to help moms and their babies have the perfect night’s rest. Pampers Baby Dry now features a longer, blue tinted absorbent area, more absorbent materials making it 15% more absorbent and new and updated Sesame Street designs that moms love.
One lucky reader will win a Pampers Wipes Baby Fresh 20ct plus a $25 grocery gift card to buy diapers! The gift card can be used at Acme, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Shaws, Lucky, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh, Shop’n Save, Hornbacher’s, and Shoppers.
