I am learning so much by writing the reviews for each diaper.
When I first started this event idea – I was just looking at all of these diapers online before I ever saw a diaper or knew what type of material was what, or what benefits any of the different materials had.
But now, knowing the benefits of a good material – I am able to go back onto each of these websites and research with understanding why I like or dislike a particular diaper.
Take for instance the Kawaii Diaper. I had NO idea that it was bamboo inside of those inserts. I thought those inserts were SO skinny and so useless, so I was changing him far sooner than I really needed to. When I went to research the diaper some more so I could write a review on the diaper – I realized how much better the diaper is than I gave it credit for. And I put it back on my boys and put it to the test.
We went out that night and ran some errands. Ethan was in the diaper for 5 hours, and we didn’t have a leak. Whereas some other diapers, we get leaks within 2 hours. So – I am finding it’s good to push the limits…!
It’s getting exciting for me to see where my boundaries are for each diaper and really discover which diapers I love the most. (Although, I already have my personal fav’s picked… we’ll get to those by friday this week – I promise.)
By all means – if you should have a comment on my particular opinion of any diaper – I would be happy to hear from you. I am no expert – and I welcome all advice and learning opportunities!
I also just want to say that I really appreciate all the support I’ve received through comments and this whole process really – from companies, fellow bloggers, and other people who I don’t even know! It’s really been reassuring to me! So, Thank You!
P.S. I may have to extend the dates of this project a little, because we’ve had a few extra companies join in – I hope no one minds! I *Have* to be done with the reviews by Sept 19th, where we’re starting the Next AWESOME Event – which all of you will just love I’m sure – But the details and announcements will be coming shortly for that .
