As part of the Mamás para Huggies® campaign that I told you about in August, I had the opportunity to try out some products. Huggies® is introducing new and improved products designed to withstand the real life challenges of parenting: Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers and Huggies® Wipes. So we put them to the test to see just how well they would stand up to my son – and he sure did his best tests on them!
As a cloth diapering mom, I haven’t used disposable diapers very often since my first son was in them. One of the problems that I often had with disposable diapers back then was that they would leak or he would have those awful blowouts where the cutest outfit your kid owns is forever tarnished by poo stains that just won’t let go. For me, the biggest test for the diapers was when we were visiting family, so I made sure to have him in them when we went to visit my husband’s parents. I was pleasantly surprised to find him not have a single blow out or leak the entire time we were trying out the diapers! I was excited to try the new Huggies Snug & Dry diapers, but there was one person who was more excited – my 4-year-old son. His favorite part of the diaper was the Mickey Mouse designs that are on the front of the diaper, he told me that they are way more fun than our boring white diapers!
Here’s some official information about the diapers:
New and improved Huggies® Snug & Dry Diapers now feature improved Leak Lock® to pull in wetness and lock it away; wider absorbent pad and improved leg guards to keep wetness in; and SnugFit*waistband to give a secure fit. With new improvements, Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers now absorb faster than before and stop leaks better than Pampers Baby Dry Diapers.
When we were trying the diapers, I kept that information in mind to prepare my review. My son is a climber, and he definitely put the leg guards and the waistband to the test while he wore them. Climbing up on chairs is super fun for a baby, and I was very pleased to see that he was able to climb without his diaper giving way. Babies crawl and climb and toddle all over the place, and it can make the diaper floppy and not hold as well when they do use it. Even my cloth diapers have had more leaks, which really surprised me. Overall, we really enjoyed the diaper, and they will be our go to pick for when my son is being watched by a sitter (so my husband and I can actually go out for some couple time!)
The fun part about the wipes was that we were able to give them more tests than the diapers. While the diapers were pretty much limited to my son wearing them and trying them out, the wipes we were able to use on a lot more surfaces. Of course we used them on him during diaper changes, where they definitely held up to the job, but I also used them on his high chair, removing makeup (that was a tip I picked up from Poncho de Anda, and it worked great!), and most importantly both of the boys’ faces. I don’t know how, but it always seems like they are able to get their faces dirty between when we leave the house and we get to church! The wipes are very handy to have in the diaper bag, and I have to confess – this cloth mama has started carrying around Huggies wipes in the diaper bag all the time! Huggies Natural Care® Wipes now clean even better and give your baby’s naturally perfect skin a gentle and sensitive clean.
Our experience with disposable diapers has been limited since I’ve become a stay-at-home mom, but my husband and I were both impressed with the performance of the diapers and the wipes. When I spend money on disposable items, I want to know that I’m getting quality products, especially when I’m using them on my baby. But I would like to urge you to try the products yourself to see if they stand up to the test of your every day life! Head on over to the Huggies Latino Facebook page on September 20th from 12 – 1 pm EST for a LIVE bilingual chat with Poncho de Anda, and don’t forget to check out the Huggies website too!
I know you haven’t had enough pictures of my adorable son… right? Here’s another!
