This post is especially for the Mommas. Why? Because it’s all about these little guys:

Now, I’ve gotta admit, when I went shopping for the Huggies Slip-On diapers, I was pretty excited {despite getting sidetracked in Target…#happenseverytime}. Even my kids were super interested in the diapers – especially since they had Tigger on them. It also sweetened the deal because I had a pretty awesome coupon for them!

But I had some serious doubts as to whether slip-on diapers would actually work for my little guy, despite the awesome things the packaging says about “trusted leak protection” and “for active baby.”

So I’m going to show you the diapers, the specific features of them, and then tell you how they worked for us…er…I mean how they worked for my son.

Meet Exhibit A: my son, Nate.

  • 20 months
  • extremely active
  • loves climbing
  • dangerous stunt performer {like the time I walked in the living room to see him throwing himself off the couch – head first. crazy boy!!!

 Meet Exhibit B: the Huggies Slip-On diaper

  • stretchy sides

Having the stretch sides really made these diapers a great fit for Nate. And here’s proof below. Bam.

At first, I wasn’t sure if the diapers would be easy to take off because of the slip-on feature, but thankfully there are tabs on the sides {just like pull-ups!} that make it easier to deal with blowout diapers.

And, of course, the main thing I was skeptical about was whether the slip-on diapers would actually be leak-proof and hold in everything they’re supposed to. And I’m pleased to say they do. Very pleased. Because blowouts = sad times for this momma.

If you want to try the slip-on diapers on your own little mover & shaker, make sure you snag this coupon before you buy! I’m a fan of saving $ – especially on boring things of life like diapers!

Because I’m totally committed to giving my honest opinion, there are 2 things I didn’t care for with these diapers. I’ll share them as long as you keep in mind that different diapers work for different kids/parents-who-change-them. Deal? Okay, cool.

So, I usually put the new diaper under the old one before even taking the soiled diaper off the kid. That way, if there’s a blowout that happens during the changing of the guard, I’ve got things covered. I could have undone the sides of the diaper and still done that with these slip-on diapers, but – ya know – that kinda defeats the whole “slip-on” aspect. In the case of diaper rash and slathering cream on little people, the process of slipping on the diapers becomes a bit more of a hassle because I’m trying to make sure the cream stays where it needs to be.

But, then again, that’s just one mom’s experience. A friend of mine uses these diapers on her little guy, LOVES them, and couldn’t imagine why I wasn’t singing their praises. Different strokes for different folks, right?

In the end, I couldn’t be more pleased at how these diapers fit my 20 month old and the “leak protection” they offer. Go ahead, little guy! Be as active as you can!

    These were just coming out when we got out of diapers in our house. I liked the velcro sides.

  2. Bobbie says:

    I am not amom, but I am the nursery ss teacher and I think I would agree with the part about not being able to slide the diaper under …blowouts with pullups are not fun! I do like the fit and Tigger is always a plus! Thanks for the chance to win. If we weren’t so far away we could shop together if I win! :-)

  3. Melissa says:

    Even though we used cloth 95% of the time, we’ve had to use disposables a few times, and its really nice to see a review of these. I’ve seen commercials on PBS and I wondered how they really worked. :)

  4. Lydia says:

    It would be a while until our baby would need these by they look like they’d be so practical!

  5. Nicole says:

    I use these for my daytime potty trained son during naptime and overnight. He wets a lot when he is asleep and the regular Pull-ups don’t always hold it all. He does not like to put on diapers on the changing table, so we slip these on when he goes potty right before nap and bedtime. Works great!

  6. Naomi says:

    We use cloth for now, but my little man is part-time potty training (and would love to do full-time if mama would get with the program ;) ) so I *know* we would love the slip-on feature! It’s a hassle to have to snap/unsnap his diaper every time he wants to go “pah-eeee” :)

  7. Julie W. says:

    I like the velcro sides for easy on/off…especially if a little one falls asleep with no diaper on.

  8. Diana says:

    I would be glad for the velcro sides. I don’t really think I’d like a slip-on diaper currently, but I can imagine they’d be really nice when we get to the potty-training stage. But yeah, slipping off a blowout diaper? Yuck! Good planning to whoever added the side tabs :)

  9. Elissa says:

    I haven’t used them, but they do perk my interest! I like the fact that blow outs are not as prevalent as they are with other diapers!

  10. I like that stretchy sides feature – because when kids bend, flip, jump off of the very things they are not supposed to – that stretchy side is what saves the whole diaper experience for Moms.

  11. Beka says:

    Sometimes I wonder if any diapers are leak proof for my little guy but maybe I just need to try these babies ;) Thanks for the giveaway!! Your blog is the best though, even without giveaways. I love reading it!

  12. Janelle M says:

    I like these because they are so much easier to get on a wiggly guy. :) This is a great giveaway.

  13. Erin L says:

    I think these would be great for those times you do a quick change in the car, or in the stroller – stand up, slip on, and go!

  14. Emily says:

    These would have been great at the daycare where I work :) And definitely would love a gift card for going back to college! :)

  15. Kelly says:

    I love that they don’t leak! I’ve never tried them, honestly, for the reasons you mentioned – putting fresh diaper underneath when changing, and slipping a slathered/powdered bottom into them. LOL

    I’d love to win the gift card!

  16. Laura says:

    We just bought some last week. Granted, it was out of desperation because we were on vacation and I hadn’t packed enough diapers :\ , but we really like them. Huggies in general have always worked well for S, and these are no exception! We use coconut oil as a diaper cream, so keeping that in place while pulling up the diaper isn’t a problem.

  17. Megan says:

    The stretchy sides is a great feature because my daughter has a small waist and sometimes pullups leak because they don’t fit correctly.

  18. Laura Jacobson says:

    I love how they can slip on and off easily for changes, but also love that you can also use as a regular diaper for when you need to have them laydown!

  19. Jennie Sanderson (@jenpsht) says:

    they are sooo easy to get on! My LO is a super squirmy kid, he never wants to stop moving, even for a second so it’s hard to get him to stay through a diaper change

  20. Wild Orchid says:

    I love that I will be able to put them on while my child is standing up.

    Entered the rafflecopter as “Wild orchid”

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    A neighbor gave us a package of these right about the time my son started potty training. It was great to have them for that in between stage when I wasn’t quite ready for him to go out in underwear yet. = ) He loved that they still pulled on like underwear – and I did too!
