When people said you will spend money like water when there is a kid in the mix I laughed. That laugh has been replaced with the realisation that maybe my luxuries to myself may have to be cut a little…
As all people with a diaper wearing person living with them will tell you, it is all about keeping the peace and quiet going so your cats don’t move out and you don’t go deaf. We have bought and discovered a lot of products and really big ticket items to make our lives easier.
- Mamaroo from 4Moms
This thing is the best thing since sliced bread! It has put Lexa right to sleep and rocked her for hours. It replaces manual labour and saves “ye olde muscles”. Not even going to breathe the price, but it was worth every cent of husband’s money.
- Doona travel system
When you want to go on holiday but the station wagon is on loan to a person you hate (now more than ever) – and you need to transport 2 adults, 3 cats and a little person with lots of baggage in a sedan, this thing will save the day.
Around since cavemen roamed the earth, but always a good bet. Funny story, back in 2003 I used to play webmaster for them – they have come a long way since those days.
No alcohol gripe water – because we read labels.
This stuff is magic. No tears, leaves little person smelling like a daisy and used from head to toe.
- Huggies – Gold
You can say all you want about disposable diapers – but I would not survive this phase without it.
Husband did all the research and decided metal is always better than plastic and UBBI made its way into the diaper girl’s room. That thing keeps the odours in and doesn’t absorb smells either.
Glow in the dark dummies is all the rage in diaper land. Nothing gets me running for the hills more than a pie hole that makes the end of world scenario real. Being able to find a dummy when it “accidentally” gets out of her mouth is priority one.
- Lily & Jack bunny
…but not for the reasons you think! The bunny is cool, really all pink and white and cute but…we use it on the Mamaroo to hold the dummy in place! I have seen Lexa pinch and move the bunny – it seems that she loves the texture 🙂
- Tommee Tippee bottles
We first bough more expensive bottles but the Tommee Tippee bottles work soooo much better.
Come back next week for more secrets from diaper girl’s room.
