The Skill of Diapering a Little Mover

My baby girl is almost 10 months old now. And though she’s not yet crawling and walking seems to be a (thankfully) distant adventure, she’s hardly one to sit still around the house. With two active older brothers, it’s safe to say that she always wants to be where the action is.

Right now, her only mode of transportation outside of me carrying her is to roll. Thankfully, she doesn’t roll far but she definitely loves to move. Especially when I’m trying to change her diaper. My word but this child loves to squirm. To her, it’s all fun and games but to me, I get a workout just trying to keep her still long enough to get a diaper on her. I find the one arm, one leg pin works well or giving her something “fun” to play with also holds her attention long enough for me to change her. Her latest fascination is a breast pad. I wish I was kidding. Whatever works, right?

Don't let her sedentary lifestyle fool you, this baby loves to shimmy and shake when you change her diaper!

I had the privilege of trying out the new Huggies® Little Snugglers Plus not to long ago when my girl was relatively happy to sit still and watch the world. I loved them! We had exactly zero blowouts, zero diaper tab fails and the minnie mouse decor was super cute too! Another opportunity came our way and now that she’s a bit older, we’ve graduated to the Huggies® Little Movers Plus diapers, exclusively sold at Costco. Once again, we have not been disappointed. Even though she’s a challenge to change and loves to grab and pull at anything, she has not managed to pull these diapers off (thank YOU double grip strips!). We’ve also had zero issues with leaks or explosions (something we dealt with every night with our boys who would ALWAYS pee through their diapers at night…grrrr), I give full credit to the GentleAbsorb® Liner for that. An unexpected bonus was how dry the diaper stays which has pretty much eliminated her diaper rashes that would rear their ugly head every time the temperature would rise.

For those more on the technical side of things, here’s some added info on these awesome diapers:

· Huggies’ most absorbent diaper† with ultra-softness

· New DryTouch Liner®

· Double Grip Strips for a comfy fit that lasts.

· Huggies Little Movers Plus are exclusively available at Costco in sizes 1-6!

Gracing our way through Summer

Aaaaaaand we are officially in summer mode. I’m suddenly being transported back to my youth and the inevitable “I’m booooored” or “Now what???”. It could potentially be a very long summer. I’m hoping it will be a good one. I have to say, preschool graduation was beyond adorable. My heart was pretty much bursting from…

A Mother’s Heart for Her Preschooler

This is the last week my oldest is in school. Hard to believe that in a few short days, I will have a preschool graduate. I’m not anticipating being overly weepy at his concert because I’m not really the type to get that emotional (or maybe I’m in denial and am going to be eating…

Finding Grace in my Parent Fails

As parents, we have moments where we can’t help but pat ourselves on the back for a job well done (what’s that? you ate the dinner that I didn’t burn, without complaint or bribery??? Score). Aaaaaand there are those moments where parent-fail doesn’t even scratch the surface. I’m talking about more than burnt dinners (check),…

Adjusting my Focus Upward

How is it only Wednesday?! Seriously…I feel as though I’ve lived a week in only a few short (yet long) days. This has been one of the most exhausting weeks I’ve had in a long time. Physically and emotionally. And I couldn’t be happier for it. Without going into specifics, there is a lot going…

Strength Training for the Working Mom

When you say strength training, a lot of people think that it is only a man’s game. However, even women can also benefit from pumping some iron. By combining weightlifting and fitness supplements, you will be able to tone your muscles faster and achieve that curvaceous and strong body that you desire. In addition, you…
