What toys to get Lily now!????

We are on a search for cool, fun, educational and hopefully, eco-friendly toys for Lily. It seems to me that she has somewhat outgrown the stuffed animals that just don’t do anything. Maybe they will be better for her again later but I feel like she needs something else now. Something that will really grab her attention! If it’s multifunctional even better. We don’t believe in too many toys nor do we have the space for it.

So, what to get?

If any of you moms and dads have any suggestions, we would love to hear some.

Land of Nod seems to have some interesting options.

Here are some that have gotten MY attention. Again, if you know anything about these toys or others, we would love to hear it.

Ok, diaper update

So, Lily has now been using the Huggies Little Snugglers for exactly 24 hours and so far no leaks or spills. Not that we had any leaks with the Pampers….

I’m not sure about the way the Huggies smell. They definitely have a scent to them once they are wet. I can’t quite put my finger on it…wet card board maybe?

Not to sound too gross but I also feel like the Huggies insulate the smell longer when Lily passes gas. (I hate to call her out like that but it does happen. ;))

One thing I do miss about the Pampers is the yellow strip that slowly turns blue as the diaper gets wet. It lets you know how wet the diaper is.

To me the Huggies Little Snugglers are OK. Not great, not horrible. Just OK.

Once this batch of Huggies Little Snugglers is done I think I would like to try the Seventh Generation and the Huggies Pure and Natural. And maybe even go up a size to 3 for 16-28lbs. It seems like she is outgrowing the size 2.

One thing is for sure though, Lily is just as cute in her Huggies as she was in her Pampers! 🙂

P.S.- The shipment from Lucky Vitamin placed on the 8th has not yet arrived. Can you believe that!!?

And the search for new diapers continues…

Last week I wrote a post about DIAPERS where I expressed interest in diapers other than Pampers.

I was so happy that we had found gDiapers on Lucky Vitamin for a good price. Well, today is the 17th and they have not yet arrived.

Lucky Vitamin has proven to be the WORST online service I have yet used to date.

Not only have the gDiapers not yet arrived but, they sent the refills first and then the gPants. Is that not like having the peanut butter and jelly but NO bread?

I am so annoyed at the fact that Lucky Vitamin hasn’t delivered that I’ve given up on gDiapers altogether. Going forward, I will continue to order diapers from Diapers.com. They deliver within 2 days without any special shipping fees.

So, because we needed diapers, Lily and I walked to Publix, our local super market and picked up a box of the Huggies Little Snugglers size 2.

I just changed her diaper and put her in the new Huggies.  I’m not sure….

The Huggies Little Snugglers feel more paper like than the Pampers which feel a lot softer to me.

Also, the Huggies are a bit smaller than the Pampers even though they are both size 2 for 12-18lbs.

I am however very curious about the pocketed back waistband that the Huggies have in order to “help keep in runny messes”.

We shall see, only time and Lily will tell. 😉

Because Lily looks so cute in her diapers, here she is wearing Pampers.

Things we LOVE!

Although we received the Soft Tiles interlocking foam floor mat only today, we are already LOVING it!!!

Lily spent almost the whole day on there getting plenty of tummy and play time.

After doing much research on the internet, we chose the Soft Tiles because not only were they the least expensive but, each square comes in 2 different sizes and in 8 colors. You can mix and match your own.

Red, Yellow and green were the colors we chose. How very Portuguese of us. 😉

Here is a very happy Lily on her Soft Tiles mat wearing a bodysuit by Old Navy, pants and socks by babyGap.
