89 Diapers, 12 Days

Can you believe that Liam has gone through 89 diapers in his 12 days on earth? That is baffling to me. But friends and family told me that was to be expected.

About 85 of those diapers have been made by the good folks at Pampers. I’m a big fan of the Swaddler line of diapers. Minimal blowout factor, solid adhesive and easy to snug. But, Target was out of the Pampers product the other day so Huggies it was. And, the disappointment is palpable. Terrible adhesive, poorly constructed, poor fit. I can’t wait to refill the Swaddler inventory.

Neither of us can believe how poorly Huggies perform.

While we’re on the topic of diapers, we have a gassy baby on our hands. A Helpful Hint in the Baby 411 book reminded us that regardless of what we do to combat Liam’s bubbly ways, he’ll continue with it through about three months. Joy.



SulliDad Featured On ChicagoNow Blogroll

Wee Windy City is an informative look at events & happenings for kids and families in the best city in the world.

The author, Caitlin, also has her own personal blog which is great as well. She was kind enough to add SulliDad Chicago to her list of Chicago parenting sites on Wee Windy City.

So check her out; she has a preview of the Harlem Globetrotters coming to the United Center…and a coupon code!

I recall my parents taking me to see the Globetrotters at the Rosemont Horizon when I was little. That Halloween, I went as a Harlem Globetrotter despite hailing from Kankakee, not Harlem.

Little did I know then I would spend a fair amount of time in and around Harlem when SulliMom lived in Morningside Heights, (she lived on that street) which bordered Harlem, while she was working at Fordham.

I miss traveling there, but I’m pretty happy I don’t live several states away from SulliMom anymore.
