When you're a new parent, everything can seem challenging and confusing. Even something that will one day seem simple, like changing your child's diapers is a big deal at first. I remember making charts of my son's poop and pee results for weeks after we brought him back from the hospital. Now, changing diapers is something I can almost do in my sleep. Fortunately, though, I don't have to any more, as he is regularly sleeping through the night. Alleluia!
The Nasty Nappy Territory - Bring You Poop Shields!
My first experience with the poop explosion occurred vicariously through my hubby. I was catching up on sleep and it was my husband's turn to answer any midnight alarm calls. When he heard our son crying, he went over to his room to see what was going on. Quickly grabbing a new diaper, my hubby began to lift my child's legs to put on the new diaper. My husband saw a little poop on his bottom, and cleverly wiped it off before it made a mess of the new diaper. However, the "little bit of poop" was just a sign of things to come. Before he knew it, my poor husband was coated in baby poop, all the way up to his elbows! If only he had been a little faster or a little slower in removing and replacing the diaper.
Getting Ready For More
My husband realized he had made a critical diaper error by not getting that diaper back on our son fast enough. So he cleaned everything up as quickly as he could to get another diaper on the messy little bottom. He also knew that next time, it was going to be my turn to change the diaper - even if it was my sleeping time.
Can These Diapers Really Hold All That Poop?
We thought the Huggies Diapers Supreme were the best, but we wanted a real test. He had attempted prune juice for the first time. Inside four hours I could smell something bad coming from his diaper. I knew it was time to work out if we had selected cleverly. I put him on the changing table and slowly started to remove his diaper... I was expecting a smeary mess all over his clothes.I had been fully expecting to see feces inside his clothes. I was pleasantly shocked to find the mess well contained to the diaper. Almost all of the poop had been absorbed by the LeakLock area and with some wipes my child was as good as ever.
So, Who's Afraid Of Changing Diapers Now?
Now, will you have the same experience I will when you try Huggies Supreme diapers for the first time? It's hard to say, everyone's baby is different I suppose. But compared to the cheaper store brands I like Huggies a WHOLE lot better. The store brands seem cheaper on a per-diaper basis, but they end up being just as expensive because you have to change your baby more often because they fill up faster. We also have had a lot of leaks and clothing messes when we were using the store brand diapers. When it comes to diapers, I guess cheaper isn't always better.
As you can see, I have been very pleased with the Huggies Diapers Supreme line of diapers, but it may not be right for you. Huggies diapers have a lot of different brands and sizes to choose from. I would suggest trying Huggies if you're still looking for the right diaper for you. You can visit my website to find out how to save money by ordering online.
If you want to find the best prices on Huggies Supreme diapers, it pays to shop around. The key is to compare the "per diaper" price in each box. It's not always cheaper to buy a bigger size of Huggies diapers, but usually that is the case. The primary exception to look out for is when you have a coupon for a certain size or style, like Huggies Diapers Size 3.
