Diapers would be a lot easier to change if babies would just sit still.
But as any parent knows, babies have a lot more interesting stuff to do than just sit there while you’re trying to change that dirty diaper – grab your necklace, practice sitting up and rolling over, or flat-out making a break for it.
So parents of escape artists and wiggleworms should check out the new style of diaper from Huggies. Just arriving in stores, Huggies’ Little Movers Slip-On diapers are designed to slip on and off faster and easier.
They look much like training pants, but with the same great absorbency and leak protection as disposable diapers.
The design of Little Movers, in fact, does look similar to Huggies’ Pull-Ups. Little Movers are all one piece, with stretchy, pre-attached sides that allow them to be pulled on quickly, just like underwear. No tabs to line up and fasten (or re-fasten, if your baby squirms.) And if your baby balks at lying down on a changing table, you can pull these on even while she’s standing or sitting.
They also have breakaway sides, so you can remove soiled ones as quickly and easily as taking off a regular diaper.
These come in three sizes. The smallest size will work for babies as small as 16 pounds. By the time most children grow out of the largest size, they will be old enough to begin potty training, so you can move them right into the thinner, less-absorbent training pants. Or, if you’re really brave, underpants.
They are arriving in many stores now; check in the diaper aisle.
