5 Stars out of 5

In short, these are GREAT diapers.

Initially, I wasn’t sure about buying/trying these since we never heard of Fisher-Price making diapers. But with a cheaper deal than Pampers I was willing to try them out & they worked great!
The above picture is of a nitetime diaper which is even MORE absorbent than the daytime ones. There is a multi package w nite-time diapers that includes both the daytime & nighttime diapers.
The nighttime diapers are GREAT for overnight or long trips when making stops often is not quite feasible : / We have never had any leaking, even when our son decides to have a growth spurt & sleep longer than usual, I know I can trust this diaper to hold it ALL in! : D
The daytime diapers work equally as well, They hold A LOT & we’ve don’t have to worry about any spillage out of the back.

There is also a size indicator (on the waist showing u too small, big or just right) which is a nice touch.
I guess the only complaint I can make is that u can see the design thru some pants so it looks like the baby’s pants r stained but it’s really not that big of a deal. 🙂
These diapers are a very good buy & WELL worth your money.

Johnson & Johnson Wipes

28 Nov

The baby brand! I can almost smell the perfume that has come to equate that adorable baby smell! I imagined how soft the baby’s skin is after a you put their lotion on & cuddling them in your arms.

Yet when I used their baby wipes, really wanting to love them, I felt a little jipped!

No sweet smell, no soft aftertouch, just a thin baby wipe that dries out quick!

Now when I use them (cause I have a whole case of them) I think, Johnson & Johnson, what a rip-off, these suck!

But the good thing that came from them is it gave me a good title for this & other products that, well….suck! = D

Pros:

  • Have high chairs
  • Have a changing table in the women’s restroom (not sure if one in the mens)
  • Restaurant is loud enough that if your child is making noise it’s often not very noticeable.
  • It’s a small thing, but I VERY much appreciated the little hook inside the handicap door that allowed me to hang his diaper bag on, instead of putting it on the floor.

Cons:

  • Nowhere to nurse
  • Booth tables are pretty close so there is little room to nurse at the booth without the baby hitting their head if they move much.

Personal Experience:

We went on a all-you-can-eat night so the place was pretty busy. Needless to say by the time my son was “done” sitting still & being quiet, it was loud enough that he wasn’t an issue. Trying to nurse while sitting at a table is uncomfortable & kind of awkward when there are people sitting at every angle around you. On one occasion, there was a man leering at me in SUCH  a creepy way & not at ALL trying to hide it. I went to a booth in a corner.

Which poses its own issue unless your child is small & doesn’t move much. My son was 7 months old & did NOT fit either of these categories so he ended up hitting his head on the heavy wood table : (
