Maxi Pads for Infants.

Mary Kate and Ashley have taken to sleeping on their tummies at night now, which by the way does not freak my freak like it did when Munchkin started doing this. I was so paranoid she was going to suffocate herself, I would go in there every 5 minutes and flip her onto her back, to no avail. I'm pretty sure the Doctor deemed me an idiot when I mentioned to him what I was doing.

Anyway... the twins, they are sleeping on their bellies and their diapers are leaking, out of the top front. Evidently my babies can piss like a race horse in their sleep. For 3 days I have been stripping beds and changing sheets, times 2.... Not fun or conducive to my time. I went in search for some advice from TBDMGE (the best damn moms group evah') and I was referred to these little gems called Diaper Doublers. If you haven't seen them, they are inserts that lay inside the diaper to soak up extra pee. Disposable (sorry earth) and cheap (yay, times 2) While I'm sure they are going to serve the purpose, I couldn't get over the fact that they look just like a maxi pad... without wings. Not the innovative new comfy maxi pads, but the old school ones that have no shape or extra moisture wicks. Kotex for babies, who would have thought?

Gross.

Please be careful!! I was never a freak about sleeping on tummies (both of my kids did it), but read my blog.

And Tyler has to wear the huggies overnites in a size up because he pees so much at night. -just another suggestion. :o)

Thanks! The size up leaked elsewhere... Too small in the legs, I was afraid of some explosive poops...

Are these new? I sure could have used these with all of our kiddos!

too funny, but ewwww. but hey at least they're girls and will one day have to get use to wearing stuff like that, right!?

I used them for Sal right after I potty trained him and we had to go on long trips, I folded it up and put it infront of "his stuff" and away we went! I hope I did not screw up his sexuality by using kotex at 2.....

My SIL works with micro preemies. They lay all of them on their tummies. The back to front actually might be reversed. Don't worry about the tummy.
