Diaper Duty! The Diapers we LOVE!

For my baby shower we received a lot of diapers. We didn’t do a diaper raffle, and Eric didn’t do a Diaper Poker Night, which I wish we would of, but we did receive a lot of diapers. For all of size one and most of size two we didn’t need diapers. We are now in size 3 diapers, and we had to make a decision on what brand we were going to go with. This is my personal review of Honest Company, Babyganics, Huggies, Naty and Pampers diapers.

As new parents the hospital sent us home with Pampers, and seeing that little blue line was so helpful at the beginning, we didn’t really have blow outs with Pampers NB/1 or Huggies size 1 either which was nice. I personally dislike Babyganics for diapers the most, we had them in a size 1 and they truly are the worst. I love all their bath and bottle products but their diapers are crap. I actually exchanged these size three diapers for store credit at Babies R Us, because I couldn’t imagine loosing more clothing to blowouts. We used Naty diapers in a pinch and had them in size NB, they honestly felt like paper and smelt so weird. So we threw most of them away. Just seemed not nice on my brand new little babies bum. The newborn diapers for Pampers were so nice and so were Huggies size 1, like I said above, but once we got her into 2’s they felt different and didn’t seem like they lasted very long, which was kinda frustrating. Honest Company we only had in a size two and I can say from personal experience that these are the best organic diapers I have tried thus far. They’re so nice and lets be honest so cute!

Honest Company also has the best cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, and bath products. I’m a major fan of the Honest Company as you can tell, but all that aside, they truly do make the best diapers. Sometimes we have little slips of poop explosions, but it’s never massive or up her back. We don’t change Charlotte throughout the night, we dream feed and go right back to bed, and the diapers are not sloshy or gross in the morning and we never ever have a leak through of pee. I eventually would like to try Parasol Diapers and Bambo Nature, but for now I signed up for the Honest Company subscription, and I love them.

The Honest Company has a wonderful subscription that you can even use for two kids at once if need be. You get six packs of diapers, you can customize sizes, and colors, so for example you can have 2 packs of 3’s and 4 packs of 5’s. I also love their wipes, they’re nice and thick and clean everything up really well. The subscription can be 3, 4, 5, or 6 weeks apart, and you can change the colors and sizes at those times. We also compared buying bulk from Costco or buying from Honest and Honest diapers were actually cheaper in comparison to other brands.

Like I said above this is just my personal experience with diapers in the short amount of time that I’ve been changing them, all babies and parents are different, but this is my opinion.

Charlotte’s Three Months Old!!

Oh man!!! I cannot believe this gorgeous little girl is three months old!! She is such a little spitfire. She’s starting to talk so much more, she voices her opinion on just about everything. She’s starting to notice more of her surroundings around her, including things like our cell phone and the tv. She still loves her fans though. Charlotte loves when we read her books, she is always so tranced by the photos on the pages. Eric reads to her everyday most of the time before bed. She has started to roll from her back to her tummy, even though she hates tummy time. Charlie is obsessed with grabbing stuff and clinging on to it, especially hair! Her hand/eye coordination is really well, if she wants something she will grab it. She doesn’t really like her pacifier anymore unless she is falling asleep, she will use her fingers during the day to self soothe. Most nights she sleeps from 9pm to 4:30-5am. then will nurse and go back to sleep until 8 or 9am and then will nurse again and sometimes sleep until noon. She loves to smile at everyone. She’s trying to learn how to laugh, but hasn’t gotten her giggle down just yet. She is ticklish on her feet and on her ribs, it’s funny to watch her squirm. She is starting to hate photos, thanks to me. Hence the no smiling in any of her photos above.

This month she will be taking another road trip to Laguna Beach, California for Labor Day, and she will be going to her first MLB game the Dodgers vs Padres. She will also be getting her ears pierced and hopefully with cooler weather soon will get to start playing outside more. We cannot wait for cooler weather and picnics at the park. Bring on all her first holidays, fall and winter. We’re over summer and being trapped inside.

We love Charlie so much, and love watching her grow. Everyday she is learning new things and we love teaching her along the way.
