No one ever told me how difficult it would be to be a parent. It’s the best experience in the world, but at times, the most challenging. Lately, I’ve been feeling a lot of heat from everyone regarding potty training. I’ve been getting flack from all directions about how children should be potty trained as soon as they hit two years old. In all honesty, I think there’s no magic age when children are “supposed” to be potty trained. Some potty train earlier than others and some later. It can be a stressful experience for both toddler and parents. Why add to the stress?
I started potty training Little One over the summer and she was doing remarkably well. Two weeks ago, she just decided that she wasn’t having anything to do with potty training. She refused to sit on the potty, she only wanted to wear diapers, and she said things like “I’m a baby, Mama! I’m just little!”
We have been going from weeks of her not wearing a diaper and only wanting to wear her Dora or Strawberry Shortcake panties (or being completely naked!) to weeks of her not wanting the potty and only wanting the diaper or training pants/easy-ups.
I heard from other moms that sometimes toddlers have set backs, they can go back and forth for a while, but once they’re ready, they’re ready. In the meantime, we will make sure to have diapers on hand.
When I was asked to review Pampers Cruisers 3-Way Fit diapers, I was more than happy to take the opportunity to check out what the product had to offer. It couldn’t have come at a better time too.
Pampers is a brand trusted by many parents. It is also the brand that the hospital used on Little One when she was in the NICU. Yes, Pampers has diapers that fit even the tiniest of preemies! Well, Little One was so little that the nurses had to fold her diaper over so it would fit. Still, the fact that Pampers was the brand the hospitals used and trusted, was something that always stayed in my mind when thinking of which kind of diapers to use.
Pampers® Cruisers diapers
- 3-Way Fit gives babies our best fit ever so they have the freedom to play their way
- Pampers Cruisers diapers offer up to 12 hours of leakage protection
- Now with the quilted softness of Swaddlers
- New Sesame Street graphics feature your favorite characters on every diaper
Pampers Cruisers 3-Way Fit does live up to its word. The fit is quite possibly the best fit on Little One so far. Because it adapts to fit the waist, legs, and bottom, it gives her the freedom to roam around and be as active as she wants to be…and not have any leaking if she does pee in her diaper.
