Huggies relief

I may be jinxing us here, but we're pretty sure we've solved Little Elvis' nighttime pee problem. He's been known to "pee out" of his diaper two-to-three times a night.

We had been using Diaper Doublers, but still had to change those a couple of times a night. If we didn't, then we'd have to change an unhappy baby into a new pair of pajamas in the dark (not to mention changing the crib sheets.)

Plus, the only store that we've found that sells Diaper Doublers isn't close. Last week we ran out of the Diaper Doublers and I hated to waste the gas to drive to the other town to get them.

So, we decided to just test our luck without the extra pee-tection.

As luck would have it, we had just opened a package of Huggies. As two big cheapies, we're always looking for the best diaper deal. That's bitten us in the butts several times. Remember the time Little Elvis went through three outfits during one baby sale? Yep, he was wearing off-brands.

But, with sales and coupons we can usually get great deals on Pampers. And Pampers work very well for us during the day.

Two weeks ago, we happened to get a good deal on Huggies with a coupon. And those diapers have been stemming the tide at night.

He slept until 4:30 this morning and was still dry when I went in to feed him!

Little Elvis now wears Pampers during the day and Huggies at night. And I'm going to start searching online for more Huggies coupons!

that's one big pee-er! lol I learned the hard way that off-brands are only good for short amounts of time - otherwise, it has to be name brand. We're loving Luvs this time around, and managed to get a bunch of packages last week at 1/2 off! So he'll be luving Luvs for at least the next 5 months LOL

As mommy of the pee-machine, I can tell you what we do: @ Night, we use the Huggies Nighttimes, or PullUps nighttimes & the double.

Last night, we went from 9pm to about 5am. At 5, I had to change him & change his pj pants.
He's a pee-machine.

Luvs & pampers & huggies all work for us during the day...but not at night.
