The Price of Sanity

One of things I was told time and time again when I was pregnant was to stock up on diapers. And not just the newborn ones (although you do go through a truck load of those), but to also be prepared and have the next two sizes up.

I honestly thought people were joking. I mean, really, how many diapers can that little person go through in the first few months?

Was I in for a shock. 

It was insane the amount of diapers we were going through. And trust me, we tried multiple brands just trying to save a few cents here and there. But in the end, the cheaper, store brand versions just didn't cut it. The savings we made with the initial purchase were lost when we went through twice as many because they couldn't hold or prevent 'diaper blowouts' (and those are just fun, aren't they?).

So, when I was asked if I wanted to try out the Wal-Mart premium brand and attend an event to learn about them, I was a little hesitant. But, I figured 'why not?'. 

But I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised. 

I received the diapers in the mail a few days before the event and figured I would take them for a 'test spin' so to speak. I liked the thickness of them, they had a cute little lion on the front and the tabs on the sides seemed to be pretty durable. And Little P definitely put them through the wringer on the first go out (if I didn't know better, I'd swear she had been saving all that pee up just for that moment). But they held, and held strong. She didn't get all 'wiggly' like she had with other store brands, and they didn't create 'droopy butt' as much some have.

Since we had a great test run, I was confident and ready for first blogger event.

And what a hoot!! Aside from the fact that I got to meet some fellow 'Mommy Bloggers', we had a blast, trying to guess the baby food in the diaper (I got mine right, nan-nan-na), raced each other to try and drink 4 ounces of water from a baby bottle (that was hard. I wound up just taking the lid off. No need to injure myself over a bottle malfunction - that's my story and I'm sticking to it), and we got to learn about how Wal-Mart has responded to parents needs in regards to cost effective  premium diapers. Fun and educational - how can you beat that?

Diapering can be one of the biggest expenses in a family’s weekly budget and a great performing diaper is a must-have for parents. In order to make this affordable, Wal-Mart has reintroduced their premium line of White Cloud diapers to address the needs of today’s busy parents.

  1. That was at least the third most fun drinking contest I've ever been in ;)

    1. Third? Girl, I have to get you out more often. It's definitely up there for me for non-alcoholic drinking games, that's for sure.
