Dear friends, I come to you today in need of either your own personal insight/experience or your I-heard-it-through-the-grapevine wisdom. Are you up for the challenge?? Good! Because if I have to change one more set of pajamas and bedding because my sweet little boy leaked (yes I mean tee-tee'd!!) right out of his diaper, overnight, to saturate everything within a 9 to 10 inch radius of his body, I'm going to buy stock in Tide laundry detergent.
He's currently in a size 3 diaper. So I bought size 4 for him to sleep in. Maybe I didn't buy the best brand? So... this is where you come in. What brand of diapers (particularly for overnight protection) do you use? What other suggestions do you have? Hmmm?
I know we all have tricks. We're either moms, or we've babysat, or we've got some sort of child care experience under our belts. So speak up! Share your knowledge. And while you're at it, splice in some tricks that get children to eat from something other than a bottle, with substance more than just formula/cereal. We have an occupational therapist coming next week to evaluate Ethan, since he's a candidate for early childhood intervention - and apparently they are going to show us how to teach Ethan to eat "big boy" foods - however, he's quite stubborn, so we'll see what happens. In the meantime, your hints and tips could be quite helpful.
So either email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), or leave a comment below.
Oh, and one last thing. If any of you happen to know the secret to making calories disappear from items such as cheesecake and french fries (without compromising the taste, of course), then it is highly important that you share this first and foremost.
