We’ve talked about this before, but sometimes you just need a survival kit with a kid. This baby survival kit suggestion is diaper boosters. Have you heard of these before? OMG. BEST. THING. EVER.
So I approached one of my BFFs and mother of 2 young kids (one that is only about a month older than Stockton) with a plea for help. “How do you keep your kid from peeing through their diaper EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT.?” I went on to explain that I use overnight diapers. Even the heavy duty kinds. We have tried a size bigger, too. I don’t want to try having him wear two diapers because they are expensive enough as it is!
Nothing works. Stockton wakes up every morning DRENCHED in his own urine (luckily it doesn’t wake him up). But I have to tell you, one of my favorite parts of the day is going in to Stockton’s room and picking him up for the first time every morning. His sleepy eyes and sweet soft voice makes me want to snuggle him to pieces… then it hits me. That sweet snuggly boy is just COVERED in pee. So then I have to carry him like hazardous material to change his diaper. This needs to STOP.
Being the wise mother of 2 that she is, she suggested the diaper booster pads – here’s what they look like:
We’ve only been able to find them on Amazon, but you have the option to buy 1 pack of 30 for $10 or 3 packs of 30 for about $24 (this is definitely the better way to go!). These have TOTALLY changed my life. I only need to use them at night, so the 3 packs of 30 will last me about 3 months. They look like long soft, white pads (similar to the feminine product you would envision), and you just put that thing right in their diaper (with no parts peaking out), and let it work its magic! And it does… seriously. I have even run out of nighttime diapers, and used them with regular diapers and haven’t had any issues.
And now, that sweet snuggly boy is dry as can be in the morning (his diaper is still a huge wet basketball, but nothing has leaked!). TOTALLY worth the buy.
Try these and let me know what you think!
