I have been extra emotional with my youngest lately. Watching him grow up has been a completely different experience than what I had with my first.

With my eldest boy I was usually googling all of his milestones, counting his words, I approached him from a very scientific point of view. I wanted to make sure that he was meeting all of his requirements in time, I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss a problem. His speech was a bit delayed so I started googling speech therapists–in the next few weeks the speech came, and came fast…with the help of a very talkative new little girl at the daycare.

With my eldest I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss a thing. That “thing” was usually scientific. What did Baby Center say he should be doing? Is he counting? Solving puzzles?


With the second it was different, I spent more time gazing into his eyes for no reason than worrying about how much tummy time he had that day. Perhaps it was because I had done the helicopter mom thing already, or maybe it was that my big boy had gotten so big in a blink of an eye that I wanted things to slow down a bit for the baby.

I love both boys equally and fiercely. When I got pregnant the second time I wondered with great dispair, how on earth am I going to love another human being as much as I love my first born? Turns out God had an answer for that too,  He simply split my heart in two.

I don’t know if a third child is in my future. I want one, but these two have my hands full right now. So I am going to take my time with them and enjoy every tantrum, every hug, every restless sleep because they simply grow up too fast!

I recently had a chance to try out Well Beginnings diapers from Walgreens. I have never been a diaper snob. “Whatever is on sale!” usually works for us. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Well Beginnings work just as well if not better than the regular brand we use. The side panels were soft and stretchy and there really wasn’t a leak in sight! Well Beginnings is also able to keep up with my incredibly active baby! Best part? It’s about 25% less expensive than the other brands too!

Although potty training is on the horizon, I am so excited to find a brand that works perfectly and saves me a couple of dollars in the process!

Are you a diaper snob? If you have more than one child,  did you raise them differently?

  1. Be;live it or not for diapers, I only ever used Pampers with both my girls. Sounds crazy, but they seemed to wok best overnight for leaks. As for Pull-ups, we always used Huggies, because they had Minnie and the Princess characters and that was what my girls seemed to prefer at this point. And my girls are definitely out of both stages thankfully, but sure this could definitely help others still in need. So, thanks for sharing :)

  2. I was a diaper snob only bought pampers I only used huggies if someone gave them to me. I was such a snob but I am not having no mo kids so I will never know if I will switch. *knocks on wood*

  3. I am a diaper snob!
    And I do always wonder if a third is in my future. Like you, I feel like my hands are full with two. Not in an overwhelming way, but definitely in a “my hands are too full to remember everything!” way.
    I was much more obsessed with Scarlet’s milestones. With Des, it wasn’t just that he was a second that made me calmer, but seeing all of Scarlet’s baby group friends grow up on a WIDE range of intelligence/limitations and then seeing them all be pretty evenly matched by age three?
    That calmed me down a LOT!

  4. I am or should i say was (thank god for my 3 year being full potty trained now), a diaper snob. I wouldn’t buy the generics or any other brand but the one that in my crazy mind i thought was the best quality. I am pretty sure when we’re blessed with a second he/she might be raised different. there are already a few things that i say i won’t do, like letting them sleep in our bed LOL.. i have learned the hard way..

  5. Admittedly, we’ve tried several types of diapers over the years…but we always seem to come back to Pampers (yep…the blog title isn’t just hyperbole!)

  6. I’m a diaper snob. I’ve tried off brand diapers and even huggies, and they broke out my mini me’s parts. I stuck with pampers sensitive.
