What do you value most as a parent when it comes to diapers? For me, I want a diaper that will last all night without leaks. I’m a light sleeper. When I wake up during the night, I’m up for the day. Even if it’s at midnight, I can’t go back to sleep no matter how hard I try. So naturally, as I stated, I want a diaper that stays dry all night. Luvs read my mind about this issue (no really, they did) and made an improved Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™. Luvs is the diaper of choice for experienced parents like myself. I’ve got this diapering thing down pat.
I don’t know of any parent who isn’t familiar with Luvs but I’m sure there are some first-time parents that aren’t. Even before I had my fist child, Luvs was on my radar as my diaper of choice and not just because they cost less than premium brands (while remaining quality made), but also because second and third-time mommies (4th, 5th, etc) in my expecting parent’s group recommended them. I rely on word of mouth for most of my purchases. If something works well enough to be recommended, I think it’s worth trying. One of the many things that I love about Luvs and that I think you will too is the large stretch tabs. The tabs are re-fastenable which is a good thing when you have a wiggly baby who won’t be still during diaper time. Luvs diapers are softer and more absorbent than ever before. Don’t you love companies that strive to please by improving on their (already near perfect) products?
“As we welcome in the New Year, perhaps the best resolution for parents is to give themselves a well-deserved “time-out” and a little bit of “me time.”
Besides having a great diaper, all parents need me time. Once the kids go to bed, I snuggle down with a good book. I read on a daily basis, in fact you could say that I read everything in sight. Except for unimportant things, like instructions ;). Everything else is fair game, though. So again, when all is well with the world and the kids are snoring away, I turn over diapering to Luvs (because parenting is hard enough) and I read myself to sleep. It’s important for our well being that we don’t get too stressed out to enjoy life. If we take care of ourselves inside (emotionally) and outside (physically) life will run much smoother. It’s true. Sometimes I spend “me time” by gardening. When the kids are napping and I’m caught up on chores, you’ll find me watering plants and pulling weeds. Reading and gardening are my pleasures. Maybe for you, you’d prefer going to bed early. Or what about taking a longer relaxing bath? It doesn’t matter what you do to spend your time for yourself, just know that you deserve that time. Decide right now that you will start spending “me time.” Even if it’s only a few days a week. FYI did you know that 2 out of 3 moms with kids 3 years and younger have never taken a day completely to themselves? I have to confess that I was in that category with my first child.
Even if you don’t have any kids (or if you do but want to help loved ones) you can give the gift of “me time.” Say what? How is that a gift? I’m glad you asked. The best gift you can give any parent is to volunteer to watch the kids so they can take “me time.” You might decide you’d like to do their laundry if they use cloth diapers or clean their house. Fixing a nice meal each week would also be a great gift. Give someone you know and love the gift of themselves. I’ve been fixing meals for a couple of families in my area one to two times a month. Sometimes more if I can fit the time in. It’s my gift to them so they can spend the time they normally would cooking, doing what they love instead. It’s a great feeling knowing that I’m doing something constructive in this way so we both win.
