Changing diapers is just part of my daily routine. As a matter of fact, it’s been that way for over four years now. Fortunately, I’m back to changing only one baby’s diapers, but there was a time when I had three diapers to change everyday. Yikes! I depended on those diapers to hold everything in, but there we’ve definitely experienced our fair share of blow outs.
When my four year old was this age, we went on a road trip about 5 hours away.
About three hours in to the trip, something just didn’t smell right and it didn’t take us long to discover where it was coming from. We pulled off of the highway at the next exit and stopped on the side of the road since a gas station was nowhere to be found. When I pulled him out of his car seat, I couldn’t believe what I’d discovered. It was truly an ultimate blow out!! Everything had to be cleaned and we decided every piece of clothing he was wearing would be better off in the trash, so that’s exactly where it went. We were able to get back on the road after the massive cleanup, but it definitely took a while for the smell to return to normal.
That memory is still firmly cemented in to our minds and it’s something we laugh about often when we’re talking about family road trips we’ve taken.
I’m convinced living through a diaper blowout is just another way to initiate moms in to motherhood. You just don’t forget experiences like that, but it really is just part of the motherhood fun.
Every Little Step Event
Just recently, I learned that Walmart celebrates moms and babies twice a year (September and February) with savings on essentials for babies. Walmart’s Every Little Step Event is going on right now! You can save on baby essentials in stores until September 13th or online at Walmart.com/baby until September 20th. The Every Little Step Event features everyday low prices on brands you know and trust like Pampers and Fisher Price. You won’t want to miss it!
Pampers Has Exciting News
Starting September 16th, you will be able to find Pampers Swaddlers available up to size 5! Not only that, but Pampers is advancing absorbency across Swaddlers, Cruisers, and Baby Dry (3x more dry than your regular diaper). As a mom who’s been changing diapers for over four years straight, I’m sure you know my son’s blow out isn’t the only diaper leak I’ve experienced. It’s nice to know Pampers is doing everything they can to lock away wetness for our sweet little ones.
Fisher Price New Nursery Line Now Available at Walmart
Fisher Price is definitely a brand we all know and trust! At Walmart, they’re now offering nursery furniture that’s stylish and versatile, providing solutions for any budget. Fisher Price “Just the Right Height” cribs make getting baby in and out of the crib easier and more comfortable for you. You can adjust the height of the crib by removing part of each crib foot, up to 4″, while still keeping baby safe. Check out this video to learn more.
