So the good people at PBN asked if I’d review a pack or two of Huggies Overnights. The wonder diapers that take away all your problems. Or something. And so I said, heck yeah, sure, duh, bring it.
Because I know a thing or two about diapers.
I’ve been a nappy expert ever since I changed the first diaper of my life, at age 34.5.
But I’ve made up for lost time. Especially when you consider that over the last 18 months, I’ve changed approximately 2,750 diapers. Give or take. Give more than take.
However, I’d never changed a Huggie. You see, we’ve been a strictly Pampers family ever since the Hurricane was born. Correction, ever since someone gave me about 20 packs of diapers at a baby shower. And we just stayed with them. Mainly because I was lazy. And because they worked. Well, mostly. But not at night. At all.
What is it about the nighttime that makes it the righttime to pee your little infant brains out? I’m not sure. And chalk it up to good hydration and/or a small bladder, but our little dude could squirt it out after dark. And bless his heart, he’d wake up wet. Really wet.
So I looked forward to seeing if these things could stand up to my Category 5 Hurricane.
The day I got them in the mail I went to lunch with a longtime, incredibly pragmatic, low-key friend, and I randomly mentioned the Huggies review I’d be doing. And. She. Freaked. She freaked, and she flipped, and she raved. And she said that "Oh my gosh, they're the most AMAZING diapers ever, ever, ever; and hey, also, I drive 156* miles out of my way to get these diapers because they are the only ones that don't leak, and they're the very best in all the land. The very best I say! The best!"
So, I tore open the package with high expectations. They had to fit. They had to be comfortable (or seemingly so), and they had to keep him dry.
And I wasn't disappointed.
First of all, you don't have to drive 156* miles to get them. And also they fit, they looked comfy, and these bad boys aren’t letting anything through. Thirty successful straight nights of complete dryness. And on the very first Huggies morning, the Hurricane woke up dry, happy, and singing. I swear. Singing. And sure, I’m not positive that the singing had anything to do with the nappies, but it was cute.
Also, we're giving a pack of Huggies Overnights away. Leave a comment, and you'll be in the Hurricane drawing. Comments will be open until Wednesday at midnight. Good luck!
COURTNEY a mother of five under five...you won! And really, how appropriate is that. Email me and I'll send them your way. Yay you.
*Also, she's completely lying. She doesn't really drive 156 miles to get them. If she does, she's nuts, because I've seen them at a few places within a few miles of my house. Also, you can totally get them here, and they'll deliver them to your door. I'm just saying.
