The Honest diapers are super cute. I splurged before my daughter was born and got a box of diapers and wipes and a few other items but the skull diapers were the ones that got the most compliments. Yeah, people actually commented on her diapers. And yeah, I put my daughter in skull diapers, they’re not just for boys! I probably won’t buy another box of Honest diapers to be honest. I knew from the get-go that splurging on diapers was silly so I only intended to get one box.
The Munchkin wipe warmer was actually a gift. Originally I thought it was completely unnecessary but boy was I wrong. We are lucky because our daughter has always been able to go through the night without a diaper change but can you imagine that you’re not only interrupted from your slumbers but then some cold wipe is used on your bottom, what a rude awakening. And better yet, I’m saved having to touch the cold wipes. Now that I have it, I love it and it’s not just for the cold winter months. This has been plugged in and used all year round. Don’t get me wrong, you don’t need this obviously but it’s definitely a “nice to have”.
I tried the Honest wipes and I’ve read in some reviews that they’ve been improved on but the wipes I had were the non interlocking kind and the packages were really hard to open. Ugh! Anyways, these up & up wipes are fragrance free, come in a convenient travel case, are super strong, and just the perfect size. You can also score these at really good deals if you stack coupons, Target Cartwheel, and promotions.
I was introduced to Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Cream to Powder in a Citrus Lane box, read review here. Finding this product was so worth trying out Citrus Lane. While we’ve been pretty lucky that our daughter doesn’t get bad diaper rash she does get a it from time to time. As soon as we notice it we use this baby and it’s usually gone by the next diaper change.
I personally don’t think using wipes is enough during a diaper change and I was ordering some other California Baby products when I found their Diaper Area Wash. I use it at every time I change her (after she gets home from daycare and on weekends/holidays/sick days) and we’ve barely gone through about a quarter of the bottle and we’ve had it for a few months now.
I could not imagine not having the Playtex Diaper Genie system… or any other system, especially in the summer. Unless you’re taking out the diapers daily it’s gonna stink up the place. You don’t have to get this, just get something! LOL
