This was supposed to be a video. I originally intended to film it before I gave birth…obviously that didn’t happen. Then I’d hoped to do it after he was born…and it looks like that will never happen…so I’ve given up and have decided to make it into a post.
People have been asking me all sorts of things. “Review this product please!” or “What kind of diapers are you using?” and even just “Where’d you get that?!” So I thought I’d review my list of things that I’m loving for baby right now. (no, I haven’t been given any of these products to talk about here – everything I’ve listed has been purchased by me without the promise or expectation of compensation)
- My Ubbi Diaper Pail – You may or may not know that I have a home daycare. I’ve been searching for years for a diaper pail that doesn’t stink. I’ve tried everything. Some have been good for a while, but then the plastic ends up somehow absorbing the smell and no matter how long I soak it in bleach/disinfectant – that smell never goes away. Not with the Ubbi Pail! It’s amazing. Truly amazing. Sleek. Simple to use. It has a child lock. It can be used with the Ubbi plastic bags, or if you’re cheap like me – any brand of garbage bags (though I’d recommend the kitchen sized ones). And if you choose to cloth diaper (as I do) you can even buy the Ubbi Cloth Pail Liner - I have 2 of these so that my pail is always ready to receive a diaper…and Ibrahim is usually always willing to provide one! If you’re in Canada like me – you can buy your Ubbi pail from Well.ca and even use coupon code HethrDelusionalMom to get 10% off your first order!
- AMP One Size Duo Pocket Diapers – Oh my goodness, how much am I loving these diapers?! When I’d had Adam, I’d used a bunch of Indian Prefold diapers and the Bummis Super Whisper Wraps…which I was more than happy with and even ordered more when I found out I was expecting again. However, I was gifted some pocket diapers from a friend and really liked them, so went and got some more “manly” colors for Ibrahim. I just happened to choose AMP brand because I liked the color options. I ordered 3 diapers and after using them for 1 day, I went and ordered another 4. I love them SO MUCH. I don’t use them as a pocket diaper, but rather as an “All in Two” diaper – meaning I lay my prefold on top of the diaper rather than stuffing it into the pocket. This way, I can simply toss the prefold into the diaper pail when it’s wet/dirty and use the diaper again (assuming it hasn’t also gotten wet/dirty). I love the fact that this can fit from 7lbs right up to 38lbs (which is basically the entire time your kid should be in diapers). Cloth diapering is expensive to start, but MUCH cheaper (and more environmentally friendly) in the long run. Canadian readers – I bought my AMP from bynature.ca
- My Moby Wrap – Why didn’t I know about this thing with my two oldest? It’s got to be one of the best things EVER. Baby is comforted and secure and mom has 2 hands to get things done. I love, love, LOVE my Moby wrap! I leant the one I used for Adam to my sister-in-law when she had her twins…she gave it back to me and I washed it and put it some place “safe” and “where I wouldn’t forget it” so it would be ready when Ibrahim was born. Unfortunately, I think my “safe” place was the donation pile. The thing was nowhere to be found. So…I ordered another one.
Hmm…I can’t seem to think of anything else at the moment…but if you’ve read/heard me talking about something and you’d like me to review it, let me know!
