Huggies Overnights + Giveaway = Love

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.

That’s right.

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.

These are great diapers. My daughter sleeps in these every night. I'd love to win a package and save a few bucks.

Becky said...

I am a total Huggies mom! With three kids 3 and under, I'd be over the moon to win a pack! They would surely be used and well enjoyed!!

Number7 said...

Glad to know my kids not the only one who can fill any diaper at nighttime!

lace said...

I have never tried these. It would be wonderful to win. I stick with pampers also.

Leslie said...

ooo, that would be great. i came to the same conclusion regarding pampers. i use huggies, and have for 3 kids.

i need size 3. :)

Julie said...

Fab-U-loso!! I'm thrilled that the Huggies Overnites worked so well for you guys - what an endorsement!

And as much as I dig them myself (I'm a Pampers mom but started using these on CJ well before the campaign), no need to enter me. I've got a closet full of Huggies!

I don't need to win them, so please don't put me in the contest (I got them for my review too). I have to say that I wish they had these when my older son was wearing diapers. I used to have to change the sheets on his bed every single night! Great review!

Bek said...

Hmmm, I should give these a try. I have had bad luck w/ Huggies. THey leak on me every time...

I have tummy sleepers and without diaper doublers we would have a swamped bed every morning... for both kids..... boo!

Bones said...

do they make them in adult sizes? maybe NASA would be interested...

Angel said...

I've never even heard of these up here! I can imagine the pairs of pajamas that would not have to be thrown aside when you wake up at 3am to a soaked baby bottom!!

CPA Mom said...

What is the poundage on those bad boys? As in, how large a baby/toddler can wear them?

If they'd work on my toddler, I'd love them!

Much More Than a Mom said...

I'd love to try those! We've moved up a size at night to try to prevent leaks.

Bubbles said...

I too am a huggies fan! Send me size 3!!

JMG said...

I don't have a baby, but I have been itching to make a diaper cake for an upcoming baby shower, so here's hoping I win.

Moesha said...

Would love them. What a great giveaway.

Christy said...

We're a Huggies family. A couple of times the others have lured me away with their super great sales but I always end up wishing I had paid the extra money for the Huggies!

Courtney said...

As a mother of five under five (including 4 in diapers) I'm never one to pass up an offer for free diapers!!!

Lesha said...

What a great giveaway! Thank you! :)

Girl con Queso said...

CPA Mom, I believe they go up to size 5 (27-40 lbs).

Namona said...

I NEED these diapers! :)

Moth-Woman said...

I have been searching for an answer to this problem, please pick me.

Erin & David said...

I am a Pampers lover but I am willing to be lured over to the Huggies side by a free pack...

Kara F said...

I need these. My daughter needs these! I can't wait to try them.

Jenny said...

These sound too good to be true—we would love to be able to get through a night without a flood!

zobars said...

Think I will need them pretty soon since I have a boy and he could use the overnites.
