We have a cruiser on our hands


“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Huggies, but all my opinions are my own. #HuggiesSlipOn #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO
You know how there are moments in life where you wake up and you realize that your world will never be the same due to a significant change, or in a mom's case, a new milestone that our babies reach. And then you catch yourself saying, "already?" Things like, "this soon?" and "surely it's not time" come out of your mouth. Perhaps maybe even a little panic sets in. "Man, I'm just not quite prepared for this," you say to your husband as it becomes evident that changes are ahead.

For me, those words and phrases came out of my mouth much more often the second time around. And much sooner at that. Simply because everything is happening much sooner, and time is flying by much faster. Because the first time around? You're all excited and jumping with joy. And not that I'm saying we're not excited for every new milestone with our Graham man, but perhaps we're just more aware of what these milestones entail. A little more cautious. A lot more hesitant.

Crawling. It's the beginning of a new chapter. One that my husband and I celebrated with high fives and loud voices {screaming and yelling... "look at him, look at him go!"}, but also one that left us scrummaging around to pick up every little toy on the floor, every little hidden puzzle piece and block, and anything else that our cruiser could get his hands on. Not to mention baby proofing all over again. Because with each baby comes a spew of curiosities, and this one, this little Graham of ours, I have a feeling will be one that will keep us on our toes.

So a month and half into this crawling gig and now he is cruising along. He went from the typical army crawl to fast-paced-I-need-to-get-there-right-now-crawl. He's a determined kind of guy. Therefore, when it comes to diapers? It's important for us to find ones that can sustain all the motions and movements of this tiny baby on a mission. Because we all know that outfit changes are no joy at this age. That comes with the milestone.
We have recently had issues with leakage and were excited to have the opportunity to test out the Huggies Slip On diapers to see if this could help resolve {and save} some unnecessary changes, help contain things, and make our lives a little bit more easier by saving time. We all know those are all crucial things in the diapering a baby world. Surprisingly, I had not realized how big of a difference these diapers would be. In fact, these are the first diapers that were dramatically different from any of the ones we have had, and in a very good one. Not only was the process of putting the diaper on so much smoother with stretch sides {see images}, easy on & off design, and a perfect fit for the standing baby {oh yes, we reached that milestone as well}, but it completely blew us out of the water with the leak protection. So far, so good. Actually, so great.

Because no leaks in my book? Means something we have not yet encountered.

Have a busy cruiser at home? Need trusted leak protection? Grab a box of Huggies Slip On from Target and use this $2 off coupon to save some money.  Save some money, and save some diapers at the same time. You know me and my love for deals.

So now that we have mastered the crawling and now onto the standing stage, we all know what comes next... walking.

If there is anything that I'm not quite ready for yet, it would be just that.

  1. Cannot believe He is actually crawling already!

    We just recently gained a little Crawler ourselves and she is everywhere. And her big sissy's are not making it easy with all the small toys they're leaving out!

  2. Wow time flies! He is to little. My nephew and him where born around the same time so I'm seeing that here too.
    As a home daycare owner we see tons of diapers a day and change a ton too. But the leaks is what usually gets us and with this diaper you will get 0 to none. Great not only for crawling but for older "babies" too.

  7. My LO just started crawling yesterday! It's our first so we are super excited. She's obsessed with going into the bathroom. Watching me get ready in the morning has always intrigued her (especially doing my hair... maybe because she hardly has any haha) and now she can jump into the fun (or trouble)!

  13. Our 3 month old son just started rolling over. I see rolling all over the house in our very immediate future! The is our second one and it does come so much quicker and I am NOT ready for a mover!

  14. My nephew just started crawling and when he was at our house this weekend, he got into our dog's toy basket. Doesn't seem like a big deal, right? Well, our dog isn't allowed to have more than a few toys out at once because he rips the fuzz out immediately. The dog went to town on the fuzzy stuffed toys. Needless to say, we will be putting the dog toys up high when Braxton comes to visit :)
