… Than a baby in a diaper.
Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Huggies and Target. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It’s been a long week you guys. I am officially wrapping up my 4th week of my 4th quarter and I am wiped. This week I had exams in Clinical Medicine and Surgery and next up is Epidemiology/Biostatistics. UGH. I came home yesterday overwhelmed and tired and was greeted by my sweet Bryn at the door. And everything instantly got better.
Because in my mind, there are few things in life that can make you smile more than some chunky little thighs in a diaper. Since I got home at her bedtime Bryn and I got to go upstairs and hang out in her room for a few minutes before it was time to nurse and go to sleep. And I was in heaven.
With two kids three and under you can imagine that we probably go through a lot of diapers. Emmie’s diaper days are pretty much behind us but Bryn is going to be in them for awhile yet. When we first were pregnant with Emmalyne I so wanted to do cloth diaper but Chris put his foot down on that so we have been a disposable family ever since. Throughout the years we have tried our fair share of brands but nothing has compared to Huggies.
Disclosure: I totally received the above products for this post, however, I buy Huggies products every single month. I try very hard to limit the sponsored content I do here on the blog to products that benefit my family, we use regularly, and I actually love. Huggies is one of those things (and their rewards program is pretty awesome!). The Snug&Dry have a SureFit design that provides up to 12 hours of leak protection which is great for nights like last night where she slept from 6:30PM-6:30AM. Now that she’s mobile the flexible waistband moves with her keeping her snug and dry throughout her adventures. The Natural Care wipes are a favorite of ours and I like to buy them by the box load. We have refillable boxes of wipes throughout the house AND in our car for the mess that kids create. Emmalyne currently sleeps in their night-time diaper while we are starting to toy with the idea of night training.
Now, one of the things that would make diapering two kids even easier is having them delivered to my house on a monthly basis. Fortunately, Target is answering that need and starting a new subscription service for diapers, wipes, and other household products. With my crazy busy schedule having this option takes one errand off my plate! I’m also all about saving money so you can score a Huggies coupon from Target HERE.
I am really happy to be able to say that my week is officially over …. well when it hits 7PM and I am finally out of class at least. I am excited to recharge a bit this weekend, go Trick-or-Treating tomorrow with the girls, and hopefully be ready to head into Week 5 on Monday. In the meantime, I am day-dreaming about snuggling my diaper-clad baby later tonight
What diapers do you prefer? Are you a Huggies fan?

I am Type A. Throughout my life I have always sought to be perfect. I don’t know why I felt the need to, because certainly no one in my family expected me to be, but I just HAD to be. I like things being just so, my closet is color coordinated, and my Google calendar keeps me […] more

Fall is definitely here in the South! The days in the 80s are dwindling and cooler weather is here. Besides craving soups I am also loving the change in my wardrobe. One of the things that I am playing with this season is mixing some patterns. I’ll be the first to admit that for many […] more

This is a sponsored opportunity with Foodie.com. Today was the first day this fall where it was seriously chilly out when I left to go to school. I am all about warm weather but there is just something about the crispness of fall that I am currently craving. When the weather gets cooler my meal […] more

One of my biggest concerns when I was pregnant with Bryn was how Emmalyne would react to having a sister. For over two years Emmalyne was the center of our world and I was nervous about how she would do in sharing the spot light. Now that we are nearly a year into this family […] more
