So thanks to Amazon Subscribe-and-Save, we are the proud owners of a package of slip-on dipes.
Lauren is wearing cloth diapers, but Aaron isn't. It's kindof a long story about why, but it all boils down to the fact that Aaron doesn't seem to be a huge fan of wearing cloth diapers and I believe at almost three, he should be able to voice his opinion about a matter such as this. Plus, he's so close to being potty trained, why bother fighting with him about what kind of diapers he's wearing. Anyway.
I bought the slide-on diapers for Aaron because he is at a stage right now where he often takes off his regular diaper to go use the potty. Then he needs a whole new diaper...and someone to put on that diaper...but he wants to do it all by himself. He's frustrated with having to be helped with his diapers and wants to be independent, but not quite ready to ditch diapers altogether.
Ian has been using pull-ups for awhile now, at nap and bed times, and they often leak after a full night's sleep. The new Huggies Slip-Ons are real diapers. As absorbent as Huggies Supremes have always been. They still have the poop-leak-guard that I love about Huggies Supremes and they still hold their shape, even when really peed. They are made with the same exact materials, the only kind of disposable diapers that doesn't give my super-sensitive-bummed children diaper rashes. (These are all the reasons we arrived at using Huggies Supremes 4+ years ago, when Ian was a little tike. We tried all the disposable brands available to us and he got a diaper rash from all of them except Huggies brand. Regular huggies leaked for us and didn't hold their shape when they were really peed. So we've been using Huggies Supremes. Yep, we're diaper snobs.)
The slip-ons are a God-send for the beginning to potty train child of a mom who has 2 other young children. They give Aaron some independence to diaper himself, but they absorb like a "normal" diaper, unlike pull-ups.
We're sold. I love them. I may never buy another "normal" diaper again! When Ian and Aaron are all done wearing Huggies, we will be all done with disposables, but until then, I hope the slip-ons catch on, because I think they are great!
