Done with the cheap diapers!!!


After K was born we tried every type of diaper on the market except for cloth. We settled on Target diapers during the day since they are 1/2 the price of Pampers and Pampers at night since they are the only diaper that can hold 12+ hours worth of pee. Well now that K is a mover and a shaker the cheap Target diapers aren't fitting so well. She pees out of them daily and gets these diaper wedgies... see pics!
Sunday while at Target I picked up a box of Luv's- Not as good as Pampers but better at leak protection that the Target dipes. Yesterday while putting the first Luv's diaper on Keira the tab breaks off as I am putting the diaper on. GREAT. Buying Pampers is going to land us on welfare.
In other exciting news, Keira stuck her hand in her poop while I was changing her again. So I have her leaning over the sink while I scrub her hands and she sticks her soapy thumb in her mouth and starts sucking it!!!!!!!!!! The look on her face was priceless!!!!!!

EEEWWWW! Good luck finding a good wiggle proof diaper! We use Costco brand and it seems to hold a lot and stay on pretty well.

haha awww man, what a diaper change. And I love the diaper wedgie. We've bought Pampers every since Jo was born, they're mighty expensive indeed. Do you have a Toys R' Us or Babies R' Us near your house? If you sign up to get coupons you'll ALWAYS get a $5 off Pampers one, I don't think I've ever bought a box of Pampers without that coupon, actually we did once and I was pissed haha.

P.s. In response to your comment on my blog. No, there is not a food she hasn't liked so far. But you know what, I got the good eater and you got the good sleeper! Jo isn't an absolute horrible sleeper but I have a feeling Keira is a lot better!

Ok, The diaper wedgie picture is so funny...I literally almost peed my pants. Brooke has not been able to war anything but Pampers...everything else breaks her bum out. I buy the cruisers and they have worked great. I would have tried cheaper ones but everytime I did she would have a break out and we would go back to Pampers, I finally decided I was not trying anymore.

There is a babies r us about 20 min away.. I always have the 150 off coupons from the paper but never a 5 dollar one!!!! Sometimes my MIL picks them up for me at BJ's. But I'll have to sign up for the coupons!

Yeah I get the $1.50 ones too but the $5 ones are from Babies R' Us and Toys R' Us specifically. I also find their prices on Pampers to be some of the cheapest... they're actually more expensive at some places you'd except them to be cheaper at. It's easy for us because I can just tell Rob to buy them at work. Too bad his discount doesn't apply on diapers!

Clare likes to put her foot in her poo while I am changing her. ewww! Also, the best diapers I have tried yet is the seventh generation brand. I get them through the co-op but I hear babies r us has them for the same price as huggies etc.
