What do Diapers and Cooking Have in Common? $50 Giveaway
Baby Girl is a mover and a shaker; short of sleep hours, there isn’t a minute of the day when she isn’t on the move. Half the time I can’t get her to stay seated in her highchair when she’s eating for goodness sake so when it’s time to change her diaper, I do not look forward to it. Diaper changes most often resemble a wrestling match, me trying to pin her down and her trying to flip herself over to run away. I’m sure it’s a sight to be seen.
When I heard about Huggies Little Movers, I thought they were made with my daughter in mind. In the past I had considered trying pull-ups but decided against it because they do not hold as much during the night and I really didn’t feel like the extra laundry that would require. Some of the other diapers shift out of place with busy babies which also cause the same leakage problems. Huggies Little Movers are meant for busy babies on the move. They offer easy tear away sides for easy changes, just catch your baby on the run, rip the sides out, give the baby a quick wipe and slide a new Huggies Little Movers back on that bare bum before their little feet hit the ground again and escape. Now if it’s a poopy diaper, you will have to contain the mess a little better but at least you can whip on a new diaper while your little one is up again ready to run.
